Under the Tents: WB TV Actors, SweeTARTS, Doug Jones, Penn Zero, Janet Varney

There was a whole lot of news today – from 21 WB TV panels to the entire line-up of Bandai San Diego Comic-Con exclusives. But that doesn’t mean that was all the news, as we have some additional cast for those WB panels, news of 3D printed candy, word on Doug Jones and Janet Varney, and much more.

Here’s a look at the news you might have missed:

  • You can get your sugar fix during SDCC thanks to the SweeTart Truck. A Facebook post recently revealed that the truck will be present during SDCC and will have a 3D printer producing candy, so color me interested! As SweeTart is a sponsor of EW’s Con-X offsite, it wouldn’t be surprising to find the truck there.


  • Korra fans brace yourselves for the new bit of news that Janet Varney will not be at SDCC. A tweet from the voice of Korra recently revealed that she will be filming in Atlanta.



  • Comedian and actor Josh Robert Thompson recently took to Twitter to an answer a fan about a con appearance. He will be at SDCC in some capacity at least!


  • Two big names in the comic book world will not be making the trek to SDCC next month as Dan Slott and Jim Steranko both mentioned on Twitter that will not be attending.

  • Speaking of those who won’t be at the convention – actor Doug Jones, who was previously reported to be in attendance for a Space Command panel, also won’t be making the trek this year after all due to filming.

  • Are you a fan of Lucha Libre? Then head to the Nuclear Blast Records Booth #501 on Saturday, July 23 at 1PM for a signing with El Hijo del Santo and Santo Jr. for a special signing. There will also be an exclusive lithograph designed by artist Marcelo Vasco only available at SDCC as well.



  • With all of that awesome WB TV panel news this morning, one thing was notably missing: The cast in attendance for the majority of shows. However, that doesn’t mean that actors haven’t started announcing on their own, so here’s a quick round-up of that:

Brandon Routh will be in attendance for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow

Actress Madelaine Petsch will be at the panel for Riverdale.

Fans of Arrow can look forward to seeing Echo Kellum.

For The Flash, both Keiynan Lonsdale and Danielle Panabaker will be in attendance.



Arthur Darville will join Routh on the Legends of Tomorrow panel.

And Rob Benedict and Richard Speight are returning to moderate the Supernatural panel.
