SDCC Thursday Panels Worth Considering

Comic Con Tips SDCC Thursday Schedule 1 Comic Con Tips SDCC Thursday Schedule 2










Here are just a few of the panels we’re most excited for on Thursday. Check back each evening for a glimpse at what to look forward to the next day.

24 (10:00 AM, Ballroom 20)

Kiefer Sutherland himself will be there! Jack Bauer is the man. Listen to his thoughts on the recently aired 24: Live Another Day (one of the best seasons of 24 yet) and get a hint at what could come next for the series.

Greendale Forever: Tribute to Community (2:15 PM, Ballroom 20)

I love Community, but felt like it’s time to be done had come. So I was as surprised as anyone when Yahoo brought the series back from the dead. Whether or not there should be a sixth season, there’s no denying that this is a funny cast, so the opportunity to see Joel McHale, Gillian Jacobs, Jim Rash and creator Dan Harmon (along with a few others) is not something to be missed.

The Witcher (10:00 AM, 6A)

Check out a the first consumer demo of The Witcher: The Wild Hunt, one of the most anticipated video games of early 2015. Get a chance to hear from some of the creates, and most importantly, see the game in action.

The Last Ship: Season 1 Panel (2:00 PM, 6A)

Praying for Adam Baldwin to appear. Please, gods of Comic Con, make this happen!

DreamWorks Animation (11:30 AM, Hall H)

Forget about the fact that they’re showing Penguins of Madagascar and Home. The important thing is that it’s being moderated by Craig Ferguson and panelists include Benedict Cumberbatch and John Malkovich. Sold!

The Giver

The book was great and hopefully the movie will be, too. Panelists include the amazing Jeff Bridges, Brendon Thwaites, and even the author of the book, Lois Lowry.

Entertainment Weekly: The Visionaries TV Showrunners (4:30 PM, Hall H)

Listen to such pop-culture icons as Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (Sleepy Hollow, Scorpion), Julie Plec (Vampire Diaries, The Originals), Greg Berlanti (Arrow, The Flash) and Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars, iZombie).

Sony Pictures Entertainment (12:30 PM, Indigo- Hilton Bayfront)

Sony will be taking about Goosebumps and Pixels. Jack Black will be there and he’s always entertaining as a panelist. It could be worth it just for that. However, it also sounds like a lucky comic con attendee will also win a chance to be in Pixels, which looks like a cool movie about retro video games invading our world.

Tim Bennett
Writer at
Quite frankly, Tim is a 17-year-old trapped in a 30-something-year-old’s body. He loves good TV – by which he means something with a good serialized storyline – and movies, and spends many of his nights immersed in a gloriously complex video game. He’s a firm believer that Lost was the greatest show ever made, and that includes the ending. Oh, and Tim is a staunch defender of the Ewoks and their place in the Star Wars canon. You can listen to Tim on the Whatever Makes You Weird podcast, check out his opinions about upcoming movies in our Trailerpark Tuesday segments, and find his reporting about cons and all things nerd-ish on Comic Con Tips.
