SAN DIEGO — Warner Bros. brought out all the stops Saturday at Comic-Con with an army of stars, surprises and new footage from films like "Aquaman ," ''Shazam! " and even "Wonder Woman 1984," which is only three and a half weeks into production. Jason Momoa, Gal Gadot, Chris Pratt, Johnny Depp and Nicole Kidman were just a few of the starry names to grace the stage of the comic book convention's Hall H. Momoa, who stars as Aquaman, seemed to be as excited as those in the 6,500-seat audience, if not more so.

source Columbia Pictures It’s hard to imagine anyone but Ryan Coogler making “Black Panther” or Patty Jenkins making “Wonder Woman.” But there was once a time when that was a possibility, along with many other would-be superhero movies that never came to be.
