The full schedule for San Diego Comic-Con 2018 is out now, but which are the must-see panels for big reveals and trailers? SDCC is one of the biggest weeks of the year in the entertainment industry, with audiences given a wealth of exclusive sneak peeks and even world premieres. Cast and crew of blockbuster movies and popular TV shows take part in Q&As, and studios often use the event to drop trailers for their upcoming movies.

There are hundreds of panels and events at SDCC, which means at first glance the schedule can seem more than a little intimidating. Here, we've gone through the entire schedule and identified all the highlights, with a brief account of what's known about the panels. In many cases, studios and networks are keeping their cards close to their chests; sometimes that's because it can be difficult to organize schedules around SDCC, but it's also because they like to have a few surprises in store. Big panels are rarely streamed and some footage is for the convention only, but you can find all the news and officially released content right here over the weekend on Screen Rant.

This year's SDCC will be a little different. Both Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm are bowing out from their usual Hall H panels, a surprising decision for Marvel given this is the 10-year anniversary of the MCU. As a result, other studios are hoping to step forward and take the SDCC crown for 2018.

20th Century Fox: The Predator

  • Time: 10:30am
  • Venue: Hall H

Last year's Fox panel was entirely dedicated to Kingsman: The Golden Circle. This time round, it looks as though the panel will focus on Shane Black's The Predator. The panel includes Black himself, along with cast members Olivia Munn, Sterling K. Brown, Keegan-Michael Key, Trevante Rhodes, Jake Busey, Yvonne Strahovski, Thomas Jane and Augusto Aguilera.

The Predator, which is set to launch in theatres on September 14, 2018, will reportedly get the biggest (and perhaps only) push at 20th Century Fox’s panel. Don't expect any X-Men news. With the next batch of X-Men films rescheduled to next year, the releases are simply too far away for Fox to air footage from X-Men: Dark Phoenix or New Mutants. There will be a presence on the Saturday from Deadpool 2, however.

Charmed Exclusive Screening

  • Time: 11:15am
  • Venue: Ballroom 20

The CW is giving their Charmed reboot a big push at SDCC, with a panel featuring series stars Melonie Diaz, Sarah Jeffery, Madeleine Mantock, and Rupert Evans along with producers Jennie Snyder Urman, Jessica O'Toole, and Amy Rardin. Attendees will get an exclusive sneak peak at the first episode, followed by a panel discussion and Q&A.

Doctor Who

  • Time: 11: 45am
  • Venue: Hall H

SDCC's Doctor Who panels have always been exceptionally popular, running all the way back to their debut in 2011. This year, the BBC is using Comic-Con to give attendees their first meeting with new Doctor Jodie Whittaker. The panel will also include co-stars Tosin Cole and Mandip Gill, showrunner Chris Chibnall, and executive producer Matt Strevens.

Nightflyers

  • Time: 3:00pm
  • Venue: Indigo Ballroom, Hilton San Diego Bayfront

Game of Thrones viewers may be disappointed to hear that there won't be a panel this year, but George R.R. Martin is still expected to be in attendance for Syfy's Nightflyers. The sci-fi series is inspired by one of Martin's novellas, and will see a team of scientists head for the edge of space - and the edge of insanity. It's believed executive producers Jeff Buhler and Gene Klein will be part of the panel, along with stars Eoin Macken and Jodie Turner-Smith.

AMC's Better Call Saul

  • Time: 3:30pm
  • Venue: Hall H

Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul will make its first visit to SDCC since July 2013. The panel will feature creator Vince Gilligan, along with stars Bob Odenkirk, Giancarlo Esposito, Rhea Seehorn, Michael Mando, and Patrick Fabian. Echoing the time Breaking Bad aired its Season 5 premiere at the annual entertainment mecca, Better Call Saul will premiere the first episode of Season 4 at SDCC as well.

Magnum P.I.

  • Time: 4:15pm
  • Venue: Room 6A

The rebooted Magnum P.I. series will put on a first-class panel, including stars Jay Hernandez, Perdita Weeks, Stephen Hill, and Zachary Knighton and executive producers Peter Lenkov and Eric Guggenheim.

Marvel Studios: The First 10 Years, Visual Development

  • Time: 5:00pm
  • Venue: Room 25ABC

Marvel Studios may not be putting on a Hall H panel this year, but there will still be this 10-year anniversary celebration panel. Marvel's Visual Development Team will share never-before-seen concept art and their favorite designs from the past 10 years.

Assassination Nation

This all-star panel includes the Russo brothers (Avengers: Infinity War), along with director Sam Levinson and the film's stars Bill Skarsgård (It), Suki Waterhouse (Insurgent), Hari Nef, and Abra. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival back in January, and is scheduled for general release in September this year.

Netflix: Marvel's Iron Fist

  • Time: 6:00pm
  • Venue: Ballroom 20

The first season of Iron Fist was a success for Netflix in terms of viewing figures, but was roundly criticized by critics and fans alike. New showrunner Raven Metzner is hoping this second series will be better-received. Marvel is currently keeping quiet about what to expect at this panel, with only Jeph Loeb confirmed in attendance. Still, it's likely this will include both a trailer drop and a release date.

Amazon Prime Video Showcase

  • Time: 3:30pm
  • Venue: Ballroom 20

This year, Universal is choosing to focus on two of their upcoming releases; Glass and Halloween. The studio is keeping details of the panel under wraps, but M.

  • Time: 10:30am

One of the most hotly-anticipated panels of SDCC 2018, the Warner Bros. panel is expected to focus in on the studio's upcoming superhero films. Director James Wan recently revealed that Warner Bros. will drop the first Aquaman trailer at SDCC 2018. We can presumably expect a number of celebrity guests as well; Jason Mamoa has been doing a tour of cons in recent months in order to promote the film. There are rumors the panel will also feature a Shazam! movie teaser, and appearances by Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck and Matt Reeves.

  • Venue: Indigo Ballroom, San Diego Hilton Bayfront

NBC is hosting a special video presentation for Manifest, the promising new series that will air this October. That will be followed by a Q&A, but the panel isn't confirmed.

The Gifted

  • Venue: Ballroom 20

Arrow

  • Time: 4:15pm
  • Venue: Ballroom 20

Arrow is a mainstay at SDCC, and this panel promises to be an exciting one, likely with some sneak peeks at the upcoming Season 7. Although the panel members haven't been confirmed, star Stephen Amell has always believed in fan engagement, so it's likely the cast and crew will be very well-represented indeed.

The Man in the High Castle

  • Time: 4: 15pm
  • Venue: Room 6A

One of Amazon Prime Video's most successful series, the dramatic Man in the High Castle is set to return for a third season.

Deadpool 2

  • Time: 5:15pm
  • Venue: Hall H

In one of the most unexpected decisions of SDCC, Fox is actually bringing the X-Men franchise this year - but not one of their upcoming films. Instead, the studio has booked a panel celebrating the success of this year's Deadpool 2. They'll also give attendees the chance to watch the extended cut at 10:00pm, a worldwide premiere and likely the only opportunity viewers will have to watch this on the big screen. There's some speculation Fox will take advantage of the panel to give fans an update on the impending X-Force movie.

The Purge: From Film to Television

  • Time: 5:15pm
  • Venue: Room 6BCF

The Purge can rightly be viewed as a cultural phenomenon, and this panel looks set to be an exciting one. Jason Blum, founder of Blumhouse Productions, will be accompanied by other creators from the film franchise as they explain how the films are being expanded into a TV series this fall. Expect cast and crew from both The Purge and the latest film, The First Purge. There's no word yet on whether or not this panel will include any sneak peeks, though.

The Flash

  • Time: 5:45pm
  • Venue: Ballroom 20

Rounding out the DCTV panels, The Flash promises to drop more hints and sneak peeks at the upcoming fifth season. The central mystery is just why Barry and Iris's daughter has traveled from the future, and what the consequences of her time-travel will be. As with the other panels, a full list of guests hasn't been announced, but we can expect stars and showrunners a-plenty.

Deadly Class

  • Time: 6:00pm
  • Venue: Indigo Ballroom, Hilton San Diego Bayfront

Based on the popular comic book series by Rick Remender and Wesley Craig, Syfy's Deadly Class will have a major presence at SDCC 2018. The panel will include the Russo brothers, along with cast and crew; it's believed series lead Ben Wadsworth and other cast members will be present, along with Remender himself.

Supernatural

  • Time: 10:30am
  • Venue: Hall H

Perhaps no show has spent more Sundays in Hall H of SDCC than Supernatural, the longest-running American live-action fantasy TV series. Last year saw the panel introduced with the kind of epic presentation that's normally reserved for a major movie, with the stars and producers then taking the stage. This time round, attendees have been promised an exclusive video presentation, with series stars and executive producers answering fan questions and teasing the 14th season.

Riverdale

  • Time: 11:45am
  • Venue: Hall H

The CW's Riverdale has hosted an SDCC panel for the last two years, but this time is being upgraded to Hall H. This has been advertised as a "special video presentation," and The CW is keeping quiet about which stars and producers will be on hand for an audience Q&A. It's possible this venue will also be used to reveal the two Archie-inspired animated shows that are in the works.
