DC Comics and DC Entertainment will have a dominating presence throughout Friday with several must-attend panels.  But first, several blockbuster events will also take place on that day.  Without further ado, here are the Friday panels.

Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog Reunion (Hall H) [10 to 11 AM]

Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog is turning 10-years-old this year.  This internet series focused on Dr. Horrible (Neil Patrick Harris)’s misadventures as he tackles his archenemy, Captain Hammer (Nathan Fillion), while pursuing their love interest Penny (Felicia Day).  Day and Fillion are scheduled to be in attendance along with series co-creators Joss and Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen.

DC Nation (Room 6DE) [11:15 AM to 12:15 PM]

The first DC event of the day belongs to DC Nation. Co-publisher Dan DiDio will moderate a panel that will feature an A-list group of creators such as Batman’s Tom King, Flash’s Joshua Williamson, Harley Quinn and The Jetsons creative team Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner, and The Flintstones’ Mark Russell.  Fans can expect the creators to spoil twists to upcoming storylines.

AMC’s The Walking Dead (Hall H) [12:15 to 1:15 PM]

The Walking Dead will invade Hall H, and it is expected to talk about the series’ new chapter. Four crucial cast members Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, and Negan himself, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, are expected to greet fans at this panel.

Also, it is expected that Scott Snyder will announce a new project at this panel.

World Premiere of The Death of Superman (Ballroom 20) [7 to 9 PM]

The final DC related event of the day belongs to the world premiere of the animated film, the Death of Superman. This animated movie is based on the classic 1990s storyline “The Death of Superman,” where the monstrous Doomsday murdered the Man of Steel. After the film’s premiere, fans will exclusively have the chance to talk to voice actors Jerry O’Connell (Superman), Rebecca Romijn (Lois Lane), Jason O’Mara (Batman), and Christopher Gorman (Flash).  Longtime Superman writer and the film’s screenwriter Peter J. Tomasi is also expected to be in attendance.
