'Supernatural' and 'Fringe' head to Comic-Con 2012 along with 'Vampire Diaries' and more WB favorites
We'll all descend on San Diego this July for Comic-Con 2012, and news about the upcoming panels is just starting to trickle out from the major studios. Warner Bros. always has a significant presence at Comic-Con, and this year, it'll be even bigger, as "Fringe" and "The Big Bang Theory" move from Ballroom 20 to the much larger Hall H, along with "Supernatural."
They're bringing some old favorites as well as the new shows we're looking forward to, like "666 Park Avenue," "Cult," "The Following," "Arrow," and "Revolution" -- all of which will be screened to give fans a special sneak peek on Wednesday, July 11.
