While Warner Bros. is busy doing heavy promotion for Birds of Prey and Wonder Woman 1984 at CCXP 2019 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Yesterday, we learned that Matt Reeves promised fans in a video message that he would be bringing The Batman to CCXP 2020, with an expectation that they’ll show a trailer/footage (possibly an exclusive first look).
Well, that wasn’t the only big DC Comics project that will be getting promoted next year.
James Gunn also promised via Twitter that he’ll be bringing footage from The Suicide Squad to CCXP 2020 as well.

Gunn is currently filming The Suicide Squad in Atlanta which made flying down to CCXP a little bit of a logistic nightmare, but I do feel like Warner Bros. will make sure to etch-out future production schedules wiggle-room to appear the event as most have for San Diego Comic-Con and CinemaCon.
The massive/impressive cast of the DC Comics sequel (expected to be R-rated) includes Margot Robbie, Viola Davis, Jai Courtney, Joel Kinnaman, Idris Elba, John Cena, Alice Braga (Predators, New Mutants), Taika, Waititi, Peter Capaldi, Joaquin Cosio (Quantum of Solace, Narcos: Mexico), David Dastmalchian, Sean Gunn, Mayling Ng, Flula Borg, Steve Agee, Daniela Melchior, Jennifer Holland, Nathan Fillion, Pete Davidson, Julio Ruiz, Juan Diego Botto, and Tinashe Kajese.
The Suicide Squad is set for release on August 6th, 2021.
It’s hard to ignore that Warner Bros. had the strongest presentations out of the studios and there is an assumption that studios will put a little more effort at the next event.
Marvel Studios head and ambassador Kevin Feige showed-up to CCXP 2019 but rushed through his presentation and interview with Omelete, which I feel like was due to a time-crunch. However, Marvel could have done more and a Black Widow panel would have made sense given they won’t be able to do a panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2020.
I expect that studios will put more money promoting stuff there in the coming years given the attendance is double of SDCC and they grow global awareness of their films.
