The decision comes as quite a shock not only given it’s a major studio refraining from participating in the major event, but also because Warner Bros. has a lot of films in its upcoming slate that are primed for announcements and reveals at the convention. Among those are DC-based projects such as the Joaquin Phoenix-led Joker origin film (debuting this October), Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) and Wonder Woman 1984, the highly-anticipated adaptation of the Stephen King Shining sequel Doctor Sleep and the fourth installment of its hit MonsterVerse Godzilla vs. Kong.
