The Friday schedule for San Diego Comic-Con 2014 has been announced. It’s actually pretty tame as far as Hall H goes, with Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead being the highlight panels of the day. RADiUS-TWC will make its SDCC debut with Horns, in which Daniel Radcliffe will also make his first appearance at Comic-Con. Outside of Hall H, there’s also plenty of TV panels to go around, with The Legend of Korra, Arrow, Archer, Bob’s Burgers, Bates Motel, and a special Marvel TV panel all taking place. Fox has also blocked out two hours in Hall H, during which time it’s expected to preview The Maze Runner, Kingsmen: The Secret Service, Let’s Be Cops, the animated Book of Life, and Hitman: Agent 47. There have also been rumblings that we might get a peek at The Fantastic Four, which would make sense.
