The pilot episode of the new series The Flash was held in Hall H on Saturday the 26th. The pilot covered the origin story of Barry Allen becoming the Flash through typical S.T.A.R. Lab malfunctions and a dash of lightning, bringing him super speed. The downside, however, is that it also caused other “meta-humans” to start showing their powers as well. The pilot episode encompassed Barry Allen and his life before the Flash and then allows us to begin the journey with him as he finds out his new found potential.

The cast and crew not only appeared at an autograph session that was meant to be only a hour long, but they stayed for nearly two hours to sign for all those fans in attendance that had a wristband. Grant Gustin (Barry Allen), Danielle Panabaker (Caitlin Snow), Candice Patton (Iris West), Tom Cavanagh (Harrison Wells), John Wesley Shipp (Henry Allen), Jesse L Martin (Detective Joe West) and executive producers Greg Berlanti and Andrew Kreisberg were there signing and meeting fans, only to rush to the screening to stay for an extended 30 minutes for a Q&A afterwards. The Flash airs on CW  on October 7th.

With the new TV series Gotham premiering this September 22nd on Fox, San Diego Comic Con was buzzing with excitement. The zip line behind the convention center was a big hit, the fans who were brave enough to zip across the Gotham skyline were given a photo to remember their courage as well as other prizes such as the lenticular Gotham badges. Fox and Uber teamed up to give attendees free rides, for the first $30, in a Gotham PD car. Gotham even took over the trolleys, each car decorated with Gotham decals.

Lucky fans that were able to get into Hall H on Saturday the 26th were treated to a screening of the pilot episode, along with a screening of the pilot episode of The Flash and the season premier episode of Arrow. Q & A followed the screening with Gotham’s actors Donal Logue (Detective Henry Bullock), David Mazouz (Bruce Wayne), Ben McKenzie (Detective James Gordon), Jada Pinkett Smith (Fish Mooney), Robin Lord Taylor (Oswald Cobblepot), Camren Bicondova (Selina Kyle), Erin Richards (Barbara Kean) and excutive producers Bruno Heller and Danny Cannon. The cast and crew held two different autograph sessions earlier that same day, greeting fans at both the Fox booth and the CW booth. Those with wristbands were allowed to praticipate in the autograph sessions, and even then, the cast stayed longer than was promised so that they could get through as many fans as they could.
