Time to start marking your calendar, Comic-Con attendees! Earlier this week, we announced a massive joint panel with Warner Bros. Television on Saturday night that will highlight the new DC shows hitting the airwaves this fall. Well, today we found out a lot more as WBTV announced their entire slate of Comic-Con panels, including standalone panels for Arrow, Constantine, iZOMBIE and Teen Titans Go!, as well as the time and location for the Saturday panel.
This week on DC All Access, we go to Infinity and Beyond!
Oh, and Constantine. We go there too. And to the world of Vertigo Comics to introduce a brand new series. And of course we spend plenty of time around the DC Comics office, so really, our LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham segment and our Infinity Man and the Forever People bit are just the surface of what’s shaping up to be our most exciting episode yet!

That’s right, John Constantine is getting a TV show.
