Cobie Smulders joins 'SHIELD'! First photo


It’s official: Cobie Smulders is reprising her Avengers role in Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

In fact, the How I Met Your Mother star appears in the very first episode, re-teaming her with Clark Gregg’s resurrected Agent Coulson, in a pilot that’s been kept under wraps by the network.

“I wanted very much to have Cobie in the pilot because as much as anyone else, she IS SHIELD,” says the pilot’s writer-director Joss Whedon in a statement to EW. “She’s cool and commanding, and has the dry humor that plays so well with Clark’s. Also, if she’s in it I get to hang out with Cobie.”

Smulders played the super-serious and super-capable Agent Maria Hill in the 2012 Avengers blockbuster. She’s expected to occasionally appear in ABC’s TV spinoff — it’s tricky because of her HIMYM commitment on rival network CBS. But with her hit comedy entering its final season … who knows? Perhaps, Smulders will join the S.H.I.E.L.D. team full time if the ABC series returns for a second year.

The heavily buzzed Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is making its Comic-Con debut at this very moment — and fans in the room are going to get a big surprise. Stay tuned for our full coverage of what’s about to go down… and in the meantime, here’s 5 other things we know about the pilot. UPDATE: Pilot screens at Comic-Con, here’s what we thought.

'Bones' at Comic-Con: 'Booth and Brennan will [spoiler] this season'

The Project: Fox’s Bones

The Panel: Executive producer Ian Toynton, executive producer Hart Hanson, David Boreanaz, and Emily Deschanel

Footage screened: A sizzle reel, with lots of screaming people finding victims.

Comic-Con: Syfy's new series 'Helix' finalizes cast, teases Season 1 plan, discusses the sci-fi legacy of 'black goo'

The Project: Helix (a new Syfy series from Battlestar Galactica’s Ronald Moore)

The Panel: Mark Stern (Syfy’s President of Original Content), Executive Producer Steven Madea (Lost), Cameron Porsandeh (writer), Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica), moderated by EW’s own Geoff Boucher

Footage screened: The audience was treated to a very brief teaser for the series, which will begin production next week in Montreal. A sterile white laboratory is stained by some sort of black goo. As the camera pans up to show a “sterilization” room, you begin to hear an automated voice repeating “complete. complete. complete.” Only the sliding door to the sterilization room isn’t able to close, because a dead scientist’s leg is blocking it. Inside the room, we see another scientist in a hazmat suit dying on the floor, and coughing up the black goo that we saw at the beginning. In the air duct off to the side, there may be something lurking. And…cut to black!

'Big Bang Theory' at Comic-Con: Will Sheldon and Amy ever 'do the nasty'? And more panel reveals

Project: CBS’ The Big Bang Theory

The Panel: Moderator Melissa Rauch (Bernadette on the show), surprise midway appearance from Johnny Galecki (Leonard), Steve Molaro (executive producer and showrunner), Bill Prady (co-creator and executive producer), Dave Goetsch (co-EP), Eric Kaplan (co-EP), Jim Reynolds (co-EP), Steve Holland (co-EP), Maria Ferrari (co-EP), and David Saltzberg (science adviser)

Footage Screened: In a pre-taped video, Stephen Hawking — who guest-starred on season 6 — introduced the panel by speaking the lyrics to the show’s theme song through his voice synthesizer. A season 6 sizzle reel highlighted the show’s geekiest moments (which is saying something), including their Star Trek: Next Generation photo shoot and the ladies’ argument over the power of Thor’s Hammer.

'Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villains in Paradise' -- First Look

Yesterday, last year’s Robot Chicken DC Comics Special earned Seth Green an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance (one of the series’ three nods). With a Robot Chicken panel on today’s Comic-Con schedule (Indigo Room at Hilton Bayfront, 3:15 p.m.), it’s the perfect time for Green to give EW the scoop on the sequel – Robot Chicken DC Comics Special II: Villains in Paradise, premiering on Adult Swim in 2014.

Comic-Con: TV's 'Brave New Warriors' on unsexy moments, fan fiction, and more

The handsome was on display Thursday afternoon at Entertainment Weekly’s Brave New Warriors Comic-Con panel, moderated by Lynette Rice. Squeals from the audience were expected, of course, but even the panelists seemed completely delighted by each others aesthetics. “I just wanted to speak for the fans and say, ‘Tyler, you are so sexy,’” said Grimm’s David Guintoli to Teen Wolf’s Tyler Posey. Twice.

Okay, so it might have been tongue in cheek. Still, these guys know how to work a room, even if they do get paid to brood, as Guintoli said. Take a look at some of the best moments from EW’s panel with Matt Smith (Doctor Who), Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf), Kit Harington (Game of Thrones), David Guintoli (Grimm), and Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead).  READ FULL STORY

'Teen Wolf' at Comic-Con: Second half of season 3 gets premiere date, a surprise guest, and more scoop

The Project: MTV’s Teen Wolf

The Panel: Executive producer Jeff Davis, Tyler Posey, Holland Roden, Dylan O’Brien, Crystal Reed, Tyler Hoechilin, Daniel Sharman, and Charlie and Max Carver.

Footage screened: A sneak peek from the rest of the season — which was awesome. The two moments that earned huge reactions from the audience? The TWO KISSES. One was between Derek and Jennifer and the other…[spoiler alert] Stiles and Lydia! There was also a good glimpse at an upcoming episode that Davis described as “Die Hard in a hospital.”

Snap judgment: Teen Wolf’s fans are a little nuts, in the best way possible. The enthusiasm that the Comic-Con crowd had — for not only the show’s hunky actors but the show’s mythology — was pretty infectious. One fan put it best right before asking a question: “You’re all really talented…and gorgeous.”

'Star-Crossed' Comic-Con panel: Shirtless alien!

The Project: Star-Crossed, premiering midseason on The CW

The Panel: Creator Meredith Averill, showrunner Adele Lim, executive producer Josh Appelbaum… plus actors Aimee Teegarden (Emery), Matt Lanter (Roman), and Grey Damon (Grayson).

Footage screened: The whole pilot, which is actually all they’ve shot so far. READ FULL STORY

'X-Files' team at Comic-Con: This show is relevant again

The Project: The X-Files. Weird, we haven’t heard anything about this new Fox show. It looks like the guy from Californication and the lady-shrink from Hannibal are doing a knock off of Grimm?

The Panel: Ohhh, it’s a 20-year anniversary reunion panel! That explains it. The lineup was actually quite impressive. Not only were creator Chris Carter and writers and producers like David Amann, Darin Morgan, Glen Morgan, John Shiban, and Jim Wong in attendance, but there were also heavy hitting X-Files write-producer grads Vince Gilligan and Howard Gordon, along with Mulder and Scully too — David Duchovny and a blonde Gillian Anderson — who enter a darkened Ballroom 20 with signature flashlights roving.

Footage Screened: Despite some teases about the never-seen Mulder and Scully sex scene — which at this point is an outtake so mythical and elusive it’s like one of the creatures the X-Files team used to chase, the audience had to settle for the show’s classic opening credits.

The Big Revelations: A third X-Files movie? Nope, Carter wouldn’t take the bait and make any kind of announcement there (though the actors said they would be game, in theory). But he did say that The X-Files could be on the air today. “The suspicion and conspiracy theories are so much more rampant today,” he said. “You could do the show now. You couldn’t really do the show in 2002 because people trusted the government — or wanted to. We went through a period there where The X-Files was not relevant.” Asked which episode creeped him out the most and Carter referred to the sewer-dwelling flukeman episode: “I think seeing Darin in that toilet was pretty creepy.” While Gilligan credited The X-Files for the creation of his own AMC favorite Breaking Bad — both for his growth as a writer, and because star Bryan Cranston once made a guest appearance on the Fox show.

Most Incisive Audience Question: Well, not the most incisive, but one that perhaps gets the biggest reaction is a fan who asked what would Mulder and Scully do on a date. “Have sex,” declared Anderson. “And maybe dinner?” added Duchovny. Anderson also said, somewhat vaguely, that she “didn’t realize Mulder was cool until a few years later…and I thought, ‘Damn, should have gone there sooner.’” At the end of the panel, Anderson auctioned off a signed cardboard cutout on stage. As bids were called out from the audience she quipped, “This is how we’re going to get the movie made.”

Comic-Con: 'Teen Wolf' cast talks ripped t-shirt budget and mid-season finale -- VIDEO

Sorry to disappoint you, Teen Wolf fans. While the MTV fan-favorite show is doing something new and groundbreaking in its upcoming mid-season finale, resident hottie Tyler Posey teases that it doesn’t involve his abs. The cast joined Entertainment Weekly’s Keith Staskiewicz in our studio at Comic-Con to talk about the season as well as to answer the age-old question: “Which is harder, pretending to be wolves or pretending to be teenagers?”
