'Agents of SHIELD' at Comic-Con: Clark Gregg on Agent Coulson's revival

Phil Coulson died in The Avengers, but he doesn’t stay dead for long. As evidenced by the trailer and pilot for Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Clark Gregg’s character is alive and well.

“When they called and said, ‘We think you might not be 100-percent dead,’ my first call was to Joss [Whedon] to say ‘So talk to me about it, so I don’t undermine what we did there,” Gregg says of Coulson’s death and resurrection. Watch more of our interview with Gregg and the rest of the stars of SHIELD below, and see what we thought of the pilot here. READ FULL STORY

'How I Met Your Mother' stars tear up at Comic-Con over final season -- VIDEO

We didn’t mean to make them cry!

The How I Met Your Mother cast — Josh Radnor, Cobie Smulders, Neil Patrick Harris, Alyson Hannigan, and Jason Segel — sat down with EW’s Laura Hertzfeld at Comic-Con, and what started as a lighthearted interview (“Kiefer Sutherland is the mom!”) turned emotional when we asked what the actors will miss most after their ninth and final season.

See the clearly tight-knit cast (the five of them even shared one couch that would barely fit Segel by himself) open up in the video below:

Robert Kirkman comic 'Clone' gets TV deal

Now zombies. Soon clones?

The Walking Dead comic creator Robert Kirkman has another project being developed for TV. His imprint at Image Comics debuted Clone from writer/creator David Schulner late last year and now the title is getting a TV development deal with NBC Universal (call it the Orphan Black Effect).

The logline: “What if there were more of you? And what if you could save those versions of yourself from being killed. The show’s themes of identity and nature verses nurture are intrinsic to the roller-coaster ride of a story.”

Says Schulner in a statement: “I knew if I went off the rails too badly Robert would be there to put me back on track  Now I’ve been writing the comic for two years, issue #9 comes out next week and I just finished writing issue 15, so to be able to turn it into a television show is just icing on the cake.”

'How I Met Your Mother' at Comic-Con: 'Let's Go to the Mall' sing-along and 'the highest of fives'

The Project: CBS’ How I Met Your Mother

The Panel: Neil Patrick Harris (Barney), Cobie Smulders (Robin), Josh Radnor (Ted), Jason Segel (Marshall), Alyson Hannigan (Lily), Carter Bays (co-creator and executive producer), Craig Thomas (co-creator and executive producer), Pam Fryman (director and executive producer), and EW’s own Sandra Gonzalez moderating

Footage Screened: No season 9 sneak peeks, but the intro video showed Ted’s exasperated kids (Lyndsey Fonseca and David Henrie) at the end of their rope after eight years of listening to the world’s longest stream-of-consciousness story. Watch the “kids” (who are now twentysomethings) go on an F-bomb-riddled rant below:

'Bates Motel' at Comic-Con: Season 2 teases and the Case of the Missing Freddie Highmore

The project: A&E’s Bates Motel

The panel: Actors Vera Farmiga, Freddie Highmore, Nestor Carbonell, Olivia Cooke, and Max Thieriot; executive producers Carlton Cuse and Kerry Ehrin

Footage screened: In lieu of a sneak peek of season 2, the whole panel (including EW’s Dan Snierson as moderator) pretended something fishy and secretive had happened causing Freddie to not make it in today. It could only be explained in a gag reel video — in which we saw Freddie visit the writers’ room during hiatus, enthusiastic and ready to get back to work, only to brutally learn his character was essentially being written out of the show so that recent Best Actress in a Drama Emmy nominee Vera Farmiga could get even more screen time. Carlton Cuse then golf-carted Freddie over to the original Psycho house and left him there. Freddie became infuriated after seeing a Norman Bates impersonator carry a body bag out and dump it in the trash. “What in the bloody hell?!” Freddie wondered. He approached the Universal Studios employee: “I DON’T THINK YOU’RE A NICE MAN.” Creepy sound effect sequence! And cut to: A bloody-shirted Freddie lugging another, Norman Bates-sized body bag onto the heap. He’s officially driven himself psycho.

… And here Freddie is now, in Ballroom 6A at Comic-Con!  READ FULL STORY

'Big Bang Theory': How did Johnny Galecki pull off his Comic-Con surprise? -- VIDEO

The Big Bang Theory panel at Comic-Con started out routine enough. All the writers and producers filed out onstage, and the only star in sight was Melissa Rauch, who plays Bernadette on the show and moderated Friday’s panel.

But when a “fan” approached the mic in Princess Leia’s Return of the Jedi disguise, the mask was removed and BBT leading man Johnny Galecki was revealed. So how did he pull off such a big surprise? And why the Leia costume (“Not the bikini. I wore that underneath,” he quipped)?

EW’s Sandra Gonzalez gets those answers and a tease of what’s coming next in season 7 in the video below:

'Lost' in 'Wonderland'! Naveen Andrews joins 'Once Upon' spinoff in major role -- EXCLUSIVE

Naveen-Andrews.jpg

He’s back: Naveen Andrews is returning to ABC primetime. The actor has booked a major role on upcoming fall series Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.

Andrews will play Jafar — the main villain in Disney’s 1992 film Aladdin.

The role will mark Andrews’ U.S. TV return since playing Sayid on Lost, which concluded in 2010. He’s appeared in one other project, the UK series Sinbad, which was aired stateside on Syfy, and was cast in an ABC pilot earlier this year. The super-secret casting was just announced during the Wonderland panel, with Andrews surprising fans by taking the stage.

“I’m proud and thrilled to be back with ABC on an exciting and unique new show!” said Andrews in a statement to EW. “This role will be a real departure from any animated versions because of the layered emotions and complexities involved with making him a real three-dimensional character.”

Showrunner Edward Kitsis said on the panel that Jafar will part of the show starting with the season premiere. “We absolutely had this character in mind and we knew we wanted Naveen to play it. We asked him he said yes and we said lets save it for Comic-Con … it’s going to be very frightening.”

Wonderland premieres Thursday, Oct. 10 at 8 p.m.

'Orphan Black' at Comic-Con: Show returns in April, expect more clones and a possible Beth episode

The project: Orphan Black

The panel: Tatiana Maslany, Dylan Bruce, Jordan Gavaris, and creators John Fawcett and Graeme Manson.

The footage screened: Although nothing new was shown — they played an overall sizzle reel from season 1, a scene between Sarah (Maslany) and Paul (Bruce), a separate scene of Allison torturing Donny (Kristian Bruun), a Felix (Gavaris) highlights, and the cringe-worthy diner-jello encounter with Helena — BBC America did share a behind-the-scenes video of how they film Maslany as the different clones together. Watch it here. READ FULL STORY
