LOS ANGELES (AP) — Calling all superheroes, sci-fi fans and genre lovers of all kinds: Comic-Con is here.

The annual pop-culture celebration kicks off Wednesday night with a preview of the San Diego Convention Center's showroom floor. Four days of panels, presentations, screenings and autograph signings begin on Thursday. The sold-out event is expected to draw more than 130,000 attendees.

Netflix is making a splashy presence at the event with several anticipated properties, including "Stranger Things 2," the new original series "Marvel's The Defenders" and the Will Smith fantasy film "Bright."

HBO will have "Game of Thrones" and "Westworld," which received 22 Emmy nominations last week. Warner Bros. will present details about "Justice League," ''Blade Runner 2049" and Steven Spielberg's adaptation of "Ready Player One."
