Comic-Con reviews NBC's 'Constantine': Fans say...

NBC is placing its bets on Constantine, and that’s clear at Comic-Con, where a big interactive display for the upcoming show has taken over Gaslamp Square and ads for the series cover many of the buses in San Diego for the convention. Executive produced by David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight, Da Vinci’s Demons), the series is based on DC Comics’ Hellblazer, which also spawned the 2005 Constantine film starring Keanu Reeves.

Fans got their first taste of the new show at Comic-Con’s Wednesday night pilot screenings. Here’s what they thought.

“I liked it. It definitely followed the feeling of the comic,” said Will, 45, of San Diego. READ FULL STORY

Norman Reedus of 'The Walking Dead' talks about disguising himself as the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man

Norman Reedus is a Comic-Con favorite. But he loves the convention as much as the convention loves him. In fact, The Walking Dead star has been known to do some celebrity stalking himself. “I took a selfie with Anthony Bourdain and the lead dude from Yo Gabba Gabba!,” says Reedus of one of his favorite Comic-Con encounters. “I was like, this is the best moment ever!” But wait, did Bourdain and “lead dude from Yo Gabba Gabba!” (also known as DJ Lance Rock) even know who Reedus was? “The Yo Gabba Gabba! guy, he knew. Anthony Bourdain kind of looked at me like, what the hell are you doing right now? But I’m a huge fan of Anthony Bourdain. If I didn’t have this job as Daryl Dixon, I would definitely want his job.”

Of course, there are scores upon scores of fans who would kill to get up close and personal with Reedus. But that can be a bit of a problem for when the star wants to go walk the convention floor. To try to an evade prying eyes, Reedus has employed a variety of costumes over the years so he can mingle undetected with even the most hardcore fans. He shared one such story about going incognito with a Walking Dead castmate. READ FULL STORY

Comic-Con fans review 'The Flash': 'I'm gonna start crying!'

The CW may have another fan-pleasing DC Comics adaptation on its hands with The Flash. Reactions were largely positive at a screening of the show’s pilot at Comic-Con on Wednesday, especially from fans who have already been introduced to the new character on The CW’s Arrow.

Kat, 22, of Long Beach, Calif., told EW, “I thought, ‘I’m gonna start crying!’ Just from how awesome it was. It had a really good origin story, so I’m excited to see what happens next.”

She noted, however, that “it was a little bit more campy and corny than The Arrow.” Others in the Comic-Con crowd also observed that the The Flash didn’t have the same dark, gritty feel of its sister show. READ FULL STORY

'Suits' star Rick Hoffman talks Louis' dangerous moves

Spoiler alert: If you haven’t watched this week’s episode of Suits, “Litt the Hell Up,” stop reading now.

Louis (Rick Hoffman) once again made a move that unintentionally hurt Harvey’s position in the battle for Gillis Industries. Louis fixed it by tricking Charles Forstman (recurring guest star Eric Roberts) into doing business with him by making him believe he hates Harvey as much as Forstman does—a move that Harvey called brilliant, and rewarded by suggesting they drink scotch from Louis’ “You Just Got Litt Up!” mugs. But Forstman had the last laugh, insisting that Louis run the money through Switzerland and the Cayman Islands to avoid taxes. Louis is legally bound to report him, but that would blow the deal, and he can’t bear to think of Harvey’s face if he disappoints him again. READ FULL STORY

Giant 'Once Upon a Time' Comic-Con billboard teases 'Frozen' storyline

Once Upon a Time fans going to Comic-Con won’t be able to miss this tease to next fall’s big storyline: a large building-wrap poster giving another Frozen hint. The image has Elsa (Georgina Haig) laying down some frosty magic and a tagline saying that Storybrooke will freeze over (literally?). For more, see our deep-dive interview with OUAT showrunners Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis giving some exclusive details about their season 4 plan.

'Once Upon a Time' is casting Prince Hans from 'Frozen'

Anna better look out, because a Frozen prince is headed to Once Upon a Time.

EW has confirmed that OUAT is in the process of casting for the role of Prince Hans, another name that Frozen fans will recognize. In the film, Hans was the charming prince who seemingly swept Anna off her feet. But let’s just say that he was later revealed to have some questionable motives. According to TVLine, which first reported the news, we will meet Hans in the third episode of season 4.

The addition of Hans brings the Frozen character count on OUAT to four, following the casting of Elsa, Anna, and Kristoff.

Once Upon a Time returns Sunday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

Bombs and bombshells collide in new trailer for WGN's 'Manhattan'

No, WGN America’s second scripted original isn’t set on a certain overpopulated island, and it’s not a guide to mixing the perfect whisky-vermouth-bitters concoction. Instead, it’s a stylish retro drama about the men and women commissioned by the United States to create the world’s first atomic bomb—or, as one scientist wryly informs another in the following exclusive trailer, a device the team “prefers to call a gadget.”

Not already intrigued? Take a look at the extended promo, which starts out with old-timey newsreel footage before segueing into actual scenes from the series. You’ll meet star John Benjamin Hickey as Los Alamos newbie Frank Winter, who’s been tasked with leading the Manhattan Project; Olivia Williams as Liza, his botanist wife; and a host of other characters played by faces familiar to anyone who keeps up with prestige dramas (hey, it’s Rachel from House of Cards! Nice to see you in the 1940s, Duck Phillips!). There is wry period humor (the “computers” that the Project relies on are actually an arsenal of comely secretaries); there is darkly-amusing-in-hindsight dialogue (“We won’t just end this war. We’ll end all war”); and there’s a stirring musical backdrop, courtesy of Serena Ryder’s sultry, Amy Winehouse-esque ballad “For You.” It’s kinda like Masters of Sex, except with more booms than boot-knocking. And actually, not really that much like Masters of Sex. READ FULL STORY

See Patton Oswalt get caned by Johnny Knoxville on 'Drunk History'

Drunk-History.jpg

History is always educational. Often, it’s inspirational. And sometimes, it’s just painful. This story about Massachusetts Senator Charles Sumner falls into that third category.

In the mid-19th century, the ardent abolitionist was beaten with a cane on the Senate floor by South Carolina Representative Preston Brooks after Sumner dropped an epic anti-slavery speech, “The Crime Against Kansas.” In the speech, he personally blasted South Carolina Senator Andrew Butler, who happened to be a cousin of Brooks. The Charleston episode of Drunk Historywhich airs July 29 at 10 p.m. on Comedy Central—revisits this strange-but-true ungentlemanly tale, which is narrated by inebriated Drunk History co-executive producer Seth Weitberg and reenacted by two dudes you just might be familiar with. Johnny Knoxville displays a cane-do spirit as Brooks, while Patton Oswalt lends his thespian skills (and precious noggin) to the role of Sumner. Take a shot and check out a preview of the action in this exclusive clip: READ FULL STORY

See Colton Haynes as Arsenal in 'Arrow' season 3

Last season on Arrow, Roy Harper was injected with Slade’s Mirakuru serum and had to deal with all of the rage that went with it. But now that Roy is Mirakuru-free, what will season three hold for the wearer of red hoodies? For one thing, another red hoodie.

As comic-book fans know, Roy Harper sometimes goes by another name: Arsenal. And not only can EW confirm that Roy will be joining Team Arrow as a fully fledged member in season three, but here’s an exclusive first look at Colton Haynes, who plays Roy, too—in full Arsenal attire (above).

The Arsenal suit will make its first appearance in the first episode of season three, which returns Oct. 8 on The CW.
