I have an example for this scenario, the Spice Girls were expected to perform at the Olympics 2012 closing ceremony but they weren't listed in the program's list/brochure that was handed to everybody that attended the closing ceremony and obviously the fans of the Spice Girls were complaining about it online, but when the group finally showed up at the Olympics to perform, they got the most attention and not including them in the program's list didn't hurt at all.
So I can see why FOX isn't saying which films will they present at the panel even though people are already expecting DOFP to show up in Comic-Con. After this panel, no one is gonna care if FOX didn't announce the arrival of DOFP's cast in Comic-Con.
