The latest trailer for Fox’s upcoming Gotham is essentially an introduction to the city’s villains before they were famous: Someone tells Oswald Cobblepot he walks like a penguin and Selina Kyle sneaks around all cat-like as a caption warns “villains will rise.” Gotham City sure sounds like a fun place to be!

The Mythbusters gang once again invaded San Diego for Comic-Con and among the footage screened for fans Saturday night was this tutorial showing how to make a bullwhip. Not just any bullwhip, either. This is for a special episode from next season taking on myths from the Indiana Jones saga (a subject the team has tackled before, but not as a full episode). In the exclusive video below, Adam Savage meticulously makes the whip used to try and debunk some Dr. Jones’ stunts. And below that, a bonus: Adam strolls the #SDCC exhibit floor in one of his two new incognito costumes this year — a Mercury astronaut: READ FULL STORY

Grimm‘s third season ended with a disrupted wedding, a loss of powers, and an apparent death.
How the NBC show will follow up all the cliffhangers might not be fully known to even the show’s writers, as co-creator David Greenwalt confessed at Grimm‘s Comic-Con panel.
“We’re supposed to go [at the beginning of] every year and tell our betters at the network what they heck we’re doing up in our little office,” Greenwalt said. “Every year we have a plan, and every year [co-creator] Jim [Kouf] scares the hell out of me by saying, ‘Wouldn’t it be better if we did this instead…?'”
Kouf added, “We keep writing ourselves into corners, and then we have to figure out how to get out of them.”
With season four now in production, Grimm‘s writers are back in the business of getting out of corners. At the Comic-Con panel—which this year had graduated to its biggest room yet, Ballroom 20—some of those corner-escape plans were revealed. Read on for some hints of what’s to come and other fun moments from the panel. READ FULL STORY
Season 5 of Vampire Diaries ended with Ian Somerhalder’s Damon and Kat Graham’s Bonnie giving into the white light of oblivion. Generally speaking, “giving into the white light of oblivion” might imply that characters will not be returning anytime soon. The Vampire Diaries panel at Comic-Con made light of the characters’ apparent exit, with a video where the actors ponder whether they’ve been written off or granted a spinoff. READ FULL STORY
It looks like season three of Arrow is turning down for no one.
Fresh out of San Diego Comic-Con, here’s your first glimpse of what to expect in Starling City this fall. And boy howdy, there’s a lot going on. Ray Palmer. Diggle rage. Business Laurel. Hong Kong flashbacks. A real date for Olicity. That will probably end with her in critical condition.
It’s a pretty satisfying trailer that manages to show lots (‘sup, Arsenal?) without actually divulging any details about the plot. The first half is a recap of season two (spoilers, if you want to see it still) while the new stuff starts about a minute in.
“Who is Red Reddington?” asked several giant-sized posters spread around last year’s Comic-Con. That was before the debut of NBC’s The Blacklist, everyone’s new favorite James Spader Delivery System, which became a shining freshman star in a rough TV season. But even though the show was a success, in some ways, it never quite answered that central question. Or anyhow, it never provided final clarity on one key mystery: Is Red actually the long-thought-dead father of FBI agent Elizabeth Keen? READ FULL STORY
If you’ve always wondered what would happen if Peter Griffin and Homer Simpson hung out at a bar while Bart and Stewie made prank phone calls, Family Guy is about to satisfy your crossover craving. In the Sept. 28 season premiere, “The Simpsons Guy,” the albino Griffins wind up by accident in Springfield, where they are greeted warmly by the hepatits-y Simpsons. But a fast friendship christened with delicious doughnuts may be forever destroyed by an argument over Pawtucket Patriot Ale and Duff Beer, which leads to an epic chicken fight.
To see the collision of these two animated worlds—plus a cameo by Bob from Bob’s Burgers—check out nearly five minutes of footage from the double-sized episode, which was screened on Saturday during the Family Guy panel at Comic-Con. READ FULL STORY
Initially, the riotously funny cast of Archer came by the EW hideout at San Diego Comic-Con to talk about the show’s upcoming sixth season. After the madness of season five’s Archer Vice, there was no telling what to expect from the animated spy comedy.
However, there’s also no telling what the Archer cast is going to say when you put them all in a room together. Fortunately, EW had a camera running. READ FULL STORY

This morning at San Diego Comic-Con, Marvel Animation unveiled the newest addition to its growing lineup of animated series: Guardians of the Galaxy.
The series was revealed at the Marvel Animation panel with a one-minute trailer that prominently featured Guardians characters Rocket Raccoon and Star Lord. As Marvel is fond of synergy across all of its entertainment properties, it’s likely that the lineup for the series will very closely resemble that of the Guardians film, which premieres next week.
Also shown was footage from upcoming seasons of all of Marvel Animation’s current shows: Avengers Assemble, Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., and Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors. The new seasons are all set to begin this Fall.
No word on when the Guardians series would premiere.
