After Marvel Studios confirmed it'll be back for this year's San Diego Comic-Con, its major superhero contender, Warner Bros. (who owns the rights to the DC Comics adaptations), has announced its own line-up for the major event, and it's downright glorious: everything from Wonder Woman and Suicide Squad to new Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will get time!

Following through with its many upcoming projects, Warner Bros. Studio will be present with new material, plus the casts of some of their upcoming films, on the iconic SDCC.

According to Comic Book Resources, Warner has confirmed a Suicide Squad panel, with some of the biggest names from the upcoming film, the next in line for the DC Extended Universe. New Joker actor Jared Leto will arrive in San Diego, as will Harley Quinn actress Margot Robbie, Will Smith, Cara Delevingne, Scott Eastwood and writer-director David Ayer, among others.

When it comes to Wonder Woman, Diana Prince herself Gal Gadot will be in attendance, as will Chris Pine (a Comic-Con veteran since taking over the role of Captain Kirk in the Star Trek reboot), Connie Nielsen and Patty Jenkins, the director of the upcoming Amazon-centered film.

The Lego Batman Movie will also be part of the Warner/DC party, with director Chris McKay and Will Arnett (who voices the Caped Crusader in the film, reprising his Lego Movie role) will be present.

Still, the main course from the DC side of Warner might be something else all together: As it was announced months back, animated film Batman: The Killing Joke will have its worldwide premiere at SDCC on Friday, July 22. The viewing will also include a panel with Tara Strong (who voices Barbara Gordon), Kevin Conroy (Batman, reprising his voice role from the 90s animated series) and Ray Wise, among others.

There's a treat for Harry Potter fans, too, as several cast members from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will be part of the film's panel, including star Eddie Redmayne, Ezra Miller, Colin Farrell and director David Yates.

According to Deadline, those are just the biggest films getting love during SDCC, as Warner's planning a bigger party. Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, John Goodman and a few others will also be present to talk about upcoming reboot Kong: Skull Island, plus new info on Guy Ritchie's King Arthur: Legend of the Sword.

Expect a lot of new footage during SDCC!
