Warner Bros/DC

Warner Bros. will bring Zack Snyder’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” Guy Ritchie’s “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” and Joe Wright’s “Pan” to Comic-Con’s Hall H in San Diego next week, the studio announced Wednesday. The presentation will be held on Saturday, July 11 at 10:30 a.m.

The studio announced that there will also be surprises, and insiders tell TheWrap that the stars of David Ayer‘s “Suicide Squad” will make a special appearance, possibly with some footage in tow.

Batman and Superman themselves, Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, will take the main stage along with co-stars Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Gal Gadot.

Cavill will stay on stage to promote “Man From U.N.C.L.E” along with co-stars Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander and Elizabeth Debicki.

Meanwhile, Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund and young Levi Miller will soar into town to support “Pan,” which flies into theaters this fall.

“Comic-Con provides us a fantastic opportunity to interact with the fans and this year, as with every year, our aim is to surpass their expectations. We’re also thrilled to give our filmmakers and talent a chance to experience the unique energy and enthusiasm of Comic-Con,” said WB’s Sue Kroll.

About “Pan”

This live-action feature presents an original adventure about the beginnings of the beloved characters created by J.M. Barrie. Peter is a mischievous 12-year-old boy with an irrepressible rebellious streak, but in the bleak London orphanage where he has lived his whole life those qualities do not exactly fly. Then one incredible night, Peter is whisked away from the orphanage and spirited off to a fantastical world of pirates, warriors and fairies called Neverland. There, he finds amazing adventures and fights life-or-death battles while trying to uncover the secret of his mother, who left him at the orphanage so long ago, and his rightful place in this magical land.  Teamed with the warrior Tiger Lily and a new friend named James Hook, Peter must defeat the ruthless pirate Blackbeard to save Neverland and discover his true destiny–to become the hero who will forever be known as Peter Pan.  The film is set for a worldwide release in 3D and 2D on Oct. 9, 2015.
