BURBANK, Calif. (July 19, 2016) — With Comic-Con 2016 coming at us in a flash, the behind-the-scenes team at the Warner Bros. booth (#4545) is once again making a super heroic effort to create another must-see environment, including displays of actual production costumes from the hit Warner Bros.

Booth. Always a destination for Comic-Con fans, the Warner Bros. booth will deliver constant activities for fans to enjoy, including talent appearances, autograph signings and more.

Here’s a closer look at this year’s Warner Bros. booth activities:

THE FLASH, ARROW & SUPERGIRL

  • While the presence of Super Heroes at the Warner Bros. Booth is not an unprecedented event, for the first time ever, all three costumes for Arrow, The Flash and Supergirlfrom their respective series on The CW will be on display for fans to measure up against.
  • All three costumes were initially conceived and created by three-time Oscar®-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood. In Season Four of Arrow and Season Two of The Flash, series costume designer Maya Mani made some modifications to the two Super Hero costumes. In addition to the authentic production costumes, each of the super suits is modeled on a life-sized 3-D rendering, created from laser body scans of series stars Stephen Amell (Arrow), Grant Gustin (The Flash) and Melisa Benoist (Supergirl).
  • Arrow returns for its fifth season on Wednesday October 5, at 8/7c on The CW. The Flash returns for its third season on Tuesday, October 4, at 8/7c on The CW. Supergirlwill have its second season premiere Monday, October 10, at 8/7c on its new network home at The CW. Based on characters from DC, all three series are produced by Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.

WHAT’S SEVEN FEET TALL, MADE OF PLASTIC, AND ONLY WORKS IN

BLACK (OR VERY, VERY DARK GREY)? LEGO® BATMAN!

  • The creative MasterBuilders at The LEGO® Group are back again with another Comic-Con exclusive: a super-sized LEGO® Batman
  • Kapow! Looking “really cool,” LEGO® Batman is constructed from 53,998 LEGO®bricks, stands just under seven feet tall and weighs in at 266 pounds. It took 45 hours for the LEGO® masterminds to design him and an astounding 340 hours for him to be built. He makes his special appearance at the Warner Bros. booth in advance of his upcoming stand-alone feature film. Don’t miss your opportunity to be humbled by the sheer “awesomeness” that is LEGO® Batman!
  • In addition, LEGO® Batman fans will have an opportunity to take a selfie with LEGO®Batman to share via social media onsite, using a custom brick-built “Batman Selfie Booth.”
  • In the irreverent spirit of fun that made The LEGO® Movie a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble — LEGO® Batman (Will Arnett) — stars in his own big-screen adventure.  But there are big changes brewing in Gotham. If he wants to save the city from a hostile takeover by The Joker (Zach Galifianakis), Batman may have to drop the lone vigilante thing, try to work with others and maybe, just maybe, learn to lighten up. Also starring Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson and Ralph Fiennes, The LEGO Batman Movie directed by Chris McKay will be released by Warner Bros. Pictures on February 10, 2017.

Mortal Kombat Review

NetherRealm Studios new Mortal Kombat is a re-imagining of the famed fighter series that began back in 1992 with the original Mortal Kombat. Created by Ed Boon and John Tobias, the series started off with an arcade fervor that lasted for a few iterations before losing some steam on the console generation as it began to stray from its core gameplay. This new Mortal Kombat, which has been released roughly 19 years after the original, is an attempt to get back to the roots of the series.
