From the Comic-Con International Toucan Blog post:

“One of the first things we announced for WonderCon Anaheim 2015 was the world premiere of the new DC Universe Original Movie, Batman vs. Robin. WonderCon has been lucky to be the home of the premieres of a number of these great DC films, dating back to 2008 and Justice League: The New Frontier, and including last year’s Son of Batman. And with each of these premieres comes a great panel, so hold onto your seats—or your hats, whichever you prefer—because here’s the preliminary 4-1-1 on the Batman vs. Robin panel and screening in the giant Arena at the Anaheim Convention Center on Friday, April 3 at 6:00 PM!

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Animation welcome WonderCon Anaheim attendees to the World Premiere of Batman vs. Robin; the latest entry in the ongoing series of DC Universe Original Movies. In the film, Damian Wayne, now bearing the mantle of Robin, blazes a headstrong and sometimes reckless trail alongside his father, Batman. While investigating a crime scene, Robin encounters a mysterious figure, Talon, who leads him on a life-altering course through the depths of Gotham’s secret society, known as The Court of Owls. It’s a dangerous journey that will force Batman and Robin to face their most dangerous adversary: each other!

Be among the first to see this new film, then stay for a star-studded panel led by the voices of Batman, Jason O’Mara (Terra Nova, Complications), and Robin, Stuart Allan (Son of Batman), alongside producer James Tucker (Justice League: Throne of Atlantis), director Jay Oliva (Batman: Assault on Arkham), Eisner Award-winning writer J.M. DeMatteis (Justice League, Teen Titans Go!), character designer Phil Bourassa (Justice League: Throne of Atlantis), dialogue director Andrea Romano (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns), and some special guests.

DC All-Access host Tiffany Smith will moderate the fun, including the awarding of a few exclusive prizes. Inspired by the storyline from the best-selling graphic novel, Batman: Court of Owls, Batman vs. Robin arrives April 14, 2015 from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Blu-Ray Combo Pack, DVD, and Digital HD.”
