You may find yourself among The Walking Dead if you pull the prerequisite all-nighter in line to breach the doors of Hall H.

Game of Thrones
1:40pm – 2:40pm Friday July 25, 2014
The good news is that if you’ve stayed through “The Walking Dead” panel then you’re well placed for the annual “Game of Thrones” panel. The bad news is that “Game of Thrones” is one of the most difficult panels to get into at Comic-Con. If you really want in, get in line the night before.
As for the panel itself, several cast members will be coming, including Maisie Williams, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Kit Harington, Gwendoline Christie, Natalie Dormer, Sophie Turner, Rory McCann, Rose Leslie and Pedro Pascal.
If previous “Game of Thrones” panels at Comic-Con are any indication, series creator George R. R. Martin will be there along with showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. There probably won’t be any season 5 footage, but there could be some “Game of Thrones” casting announcements as well as the usually very funny recap video.
Marvel Television Presents
3:00pm – 4:00pm Friday July 25

Marvel’s “Daredevil” series for Netflix is currently filming and probably won’t be heavily featured this year. But if Marvel is planning to drop a quick “Daredevil” preview at Comic-Con then this is where they will do it.
