The show must go on.

And for Ben Affleck, that means appearing at Comic-Con International: San Diego on Saturday, July 11 to promote Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the 2016 superhero film in which he will play the Caped Crusader.

Warner Bros. said Wednesday that Affleck, who confirmed this week that he and wife Jennifer Garner are divorcing after 10 years, will appear on stage with his castmates and director Zach Snyder to talk about the film.

Affleck, 42, will be joined by Henry Cavill, who plays Superman, as well as costars Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter and Gal Gadot.

Affleck is not expected to have to field any personal questions at the session.

“Comic-Con provides us a fantastic opportunity to interact with the fans, and this year, as with every year, our aim is to surpass their expectations,” Sue Kroll, president of worldwide marketing and international distribution at Warner Bros., said in a statement. “We’re also thrilled to give our filmmakers and talent a chance to experience the unique energy and enthusiasm of Comic-Con.”

Warner Bros. also plans to tease two other features at Comic-Con: Pan, starring Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund and Levi Miller; and Guy Ritchie’s The Man from U.N.C.L.E., with Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander and Elizabeth Debicki.
