We have some big news about two of Summit Entertainment’s biggest upcoming releases, and their plans at San Diego Comic Con this year!
Some had speculated that Summit Entertainment’s early announcement of Ender’s Game meant that would be the only property the studio would be bringing to Comic Con this year – but we now know they’ll also be bringing Divergent and Escape Plan on Thursday!
Actress Maggie Q, who will also be at SDCC for the final season and panel for her TV show Nikita as well an Entertainment Weekly panel on Saturday (which may be their annual “Women Who Kick Ass” panel), revealed on her Twitter that she will be a panel for Divergent:
I just wrapped on Divergent!!!!! See you at Comic Con on July 18! Nikita July 19! EW panel July 20! I'll pretend to be interesting. Promise
