Comic-Con 2018 Schedule (Thursday Panels): Star Wars Clone Wars, Doctor Who -- Guide To The Must-See TV And Movie Panels

Here's your guide to Thursday at San Diego Comic-Con.


It's here. We've reached the start of San Diego Comic-Con 2018, perhaps the year's biggest entertainment event, and already we've gotten some big news with Star Wars: The Clone Wars making a comeback. As always, the event sees the actors and creators of your favorite TV shows, movies, comic books, and more gather to meet and talk to fans. The annual celebration of all things nerdy runs from now through July 22 in San Diego, CA, and GameSpot is here to help you figure out what, exactly, you should keep an eye out for. To kick things off on Thursday, we've already gotten the aforementioned Star Wars news, a new trailer for Titans (DC's upcoming TV show), and details on DC Universe. The first panels have also provided us with a Doctor Who trailer and Predator poster--there's a lot happening.

While there are four days packed with panels, screenings, and other events, this post is going to focus on the schedule for Thursday, the official first day of Comic-Con. Still, though it's the start of the event, there's more than enough to do. When it comes to big panels, Thursday has everything from movies, to TV shows, to a massive reunion 10 years in the making.

Now Playing: Doctor Who - Series 11 Official Comic-Con Trailer | SDCC 2018

The morning kicks off with a look at the upcoming film The Predator, which provided some new footage from the movie (for attendees only, at least fort now), as well as fun stories from director Shane Black. There's also a panel for WWE's Mattel action figures. While it's happening mostly to talk about the upcoming toy line, the panel will also include a Q&A with Matt Hardy, Zack Ryder, Curt Hawkins, and a "surprise superstar or two."

Thursday also saw new Doctor Who star Jodie Whittaker make her SDCC debut, as the BBC America series returned to San Diego for the first time since Peter Capaldi's exit. Rounding out the day is the 10th anniversary reunion of the Breaking Bad cast, who will gather to talk with fans and reminisce about the series.

There's plenty more to see on Thursday, which you can check out in our full list of daily highlights below. Also make sure to take a look at our schedule of must-see panels for the entire convention, or else you might miss out on something amazing.
