For well over a decade, DC’s booth has dominated the center of the Exhibit Hall at Comic-Con. Some of the details may change, as in who is on the walls that allow for signing spaces, and what videos show on the big screen, but it’s reassuring and, of course, representing some great storytelling.
What changes in the middle are the costumes on display. In years past we’ve had multimedia Supermen and Batmen, and this year displays the blend of movies (Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice) and the place that DC currently owns for fans — television. A wide variety of character costumes and props from Arrow, The Flash, and technically, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow had people crowded around last night, explaining characters to family members and friends, and probably gaining a few more viewers.
Season 3 Arrow
Arsenal – or did he become Red Arrow?
A close-up on Brother Blood’s mask
Captain Cold – a villain on The Flash, and poised to steal Legends of Tomorrow
The Weather Wizard’s Wand (not a sonic screwdriver)
The Fury of Firestorm’s athletic gear
The Flash…ah, The Flash.
Jay Garrick’s helmet. Can’t wait for Season 2…
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, John Barrowman wore this.
The Pied Piper’s sonic gloves… love the woodwind stops, a detail hard to see on television.
Batman’s casual clothes
And his formal armor…
The Superman suit from Batman v Superman, which does look a little brighter than before..
Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman costume…
Not a costume, but I think it’s funny that DC put Lucifer next to Supergirl.
Peter David must be proud.
