Nearly every nook and cranny surrounding the San Diego Convention Center will be taken over by Comic-Con — and that includes hotel keycards. Warner Bros. TV Group unveiled that the CW’s Batwoman and the forthcoming EPIX original series Pennyworth will be seen on hotel keycards. In addition, HBO will release an exclusive Watchmen keycard that will be available to fans attending the confab.
The Batwoman and Pennyworth keycards are in honor of the 80th anniversary of Batman. The two DC dramas are adjacent stories to the caped crusader. With more than 40,000 branded room keys available at nearly 40 participating major hotels throughout the San Diego area during Comic-Con, fans will be able to get their hands on these keycards which pay homage to the Wayne family fortune (as in Bruce Wayne) — and a group of outlaw superheroes.
