With San Diego Comic-Con 50 two weeks away, the scramble begins to get all of their plans out to the folks who will be attending the show. We have recently talked about what DC’s plans were for Batman, now we focus on what DC Universe will be up to during the convention almost a year after it first launched.
According to a press release from DC, DC Universe will feature two panels. The first features the DC Daily, the one-stop news program for everything DC. It will feature the hosts of the show and it will take place on Friday, July 19th from 10am-11am in Room 9. The second panel is their big one, a special two hour DC Universe event on Saturday night July 20th from 7pm-9pm in the Indigo Ballroom at the Hilton Bayfront. It will feature sneak peaks, first looks, exclusive screenings and breaking news from series like Titans, Doom Patrol, Young Justice: Outsiders and Harley Quinn.
“We are excited to showcase our original shows and share more news of what’s to come in year two for DC UNIVERSE,” said Sam Ades senior vice president and general manager, DC UNIVERSE. “In San Diego, we’ll embrace the ways in which DC UNIVERSE provides real-life membership benefits like no other service, designed specifically for DC fans. After last year’s amazingly successful introduction at SDCC, we’re thrilled to focus on the members who have made the service home to their DC fandom by offering unique, interesting experiences only we can provide.”
Here are a list of giveaways they are have planned for the convention:
An all-inclusive trip to San Diego awarded in a sweepstakes through the DC UNIVERSE service*
Passes to the exclusive screening of the premiere of DC Spotlight: Shazam, a behind-the-scenes documentary
VIP tickets to attend Batman’s induction into the Comic Con Museum Hall of Fame
Access to sign-up for a members-only signing with Jim Lee, world-renowned comic book artist, writer, editor and Publisher of DC
A chance to attend a private, DCU member brunch on a yacht in the San Diego Marina with surprise talent appearances and special giveaways
It looks like this year instead of having their own activation outside of the convention, DC Universe will also share space in the combined DC/Warner Bros. booth #4545 that is located in the entertainment section of the exhibit hall that will feature exclusive DCU giveaways, artist signings and special interactions. Check them out below!

With purchase of an annual DC UNIVERSE membership on-site and online, fans will receive an exclusive gift set of four limited-edition comic books with new variant covers, including YOUNG JUSTICE: OUTSIDERS #1, DETECTIVE COMICS #1000, SAGA OF SWAMP THING #21, and DOOM PATROL #19
DCU members will have the opportunity to collect an original series print every day in the redemption area of the DC booth. The prints, inspired by DC UNIVERSE Original Series, were made by pop culture artists Doaly, Cliff Cramp, Chris Thornley, and Ruiz Burgos.
As it is at any show, one of my highlights is the DC content, although this year it will be very different as all of their activities will be bunched into one specific area. With Stargirl so close to being released, I am curious as to why they aren’t pushing that series, yet Harley Quinn will be getting the biggest push, as if it even needed it. Regardless a team from LRMOnline will be on the show floor to bring you all of the news as it drops so make sure to check in regularly!
San Diego Comic-Con 50 takes place July 17th-21st at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California.
