ARROW-Comic-Con-2013-Cape.jpg

At next week’s San Diego Comic-Con, Warner Bros. is once again providing the official bags of the mega fan event, the stuffed sacks that are handed to every registered attendee packed full of promotional goodies. And once again, the bags are branded with the studio’s shows that are paneling at the convention.

But this year, there’s a change: The hefty bags have evolved into smaller backpacks, and the backpacks have capes.

Below are images of the bags for NBC’s Revolution and The CW’s Arrow, both of which have panels this year. With a full 130,000 bags being produced for the event, expect the skies over the convention center to be pretty crowded. READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead': Daryl Dixon is a masked man in exclusive season 4 photo

The producers of AMC’s The Walking Dead have promised even scarier zombies and another new threat to rock the survivors when the hit cable drama returns for season 4 in October. But they did not warn us of the possibility that DARYL DIXON MAY NO LONGER HAVE A FACE! Okay, maybe that’s jumping to conclusions, but check out the exclusive new season 4 photo in full by clicking on the “Full Size Image” button above. READ FULL STORY

Comic-Con 2013: 'Doctor Who' executive producer Steven Moffat talks about the 'terrifying' search for a new Time Lord

Last month, the BBC announced that Doctor Who star Matt Smith had decided to leave the 50-year-old British science fiction show after this year’s special Christmas episode. So how goes the search for the next Doctor? “Well, it’s always just terrifying,” says Doctor Who executive producer Steven Moffat, who recruited Smith to replace his predecessor, David Tennant, back in late 2008. “If you’re a Doctor Who fan, as I have been all my life, you’ve been doing fantasy casting for this part for as long as you can remember. But when you’re suddenly faced with the reality that you are going to sit there and you are going to make that decision it does feel absolutely chilling. There’s a very big range of people who could play it and different ways you could go with it. We must get this right. One false move and the show’s over.”

Below, Moffat — who will be appearing at the Comic-Con Doctor Who 50th anniversary panel along with Smith and other Who notables  — talks more about the search for a new Doctor, Smith’s decision to leave the show, and why he’s got a bone to pick with Ryan Gosling. READ FULL STORY

NBC giving out free chairs at Comic-Con

The bad thing about Comic-Con? The lines. The lines worm their way through their way through the San Diego Convention Center. They wrap around buildings. The lines match the epic-ness of any sci-fi movie panel. Typically you have two choices when faced with a line: You can sit on the hard ground like you’re begging for change, or you can stand wearily at attention until your knees buckle.

But this year, NBC and Universal Television are providing a third choice. The network and studio are giving away free chairs at Comic-Con (below). We’re told this is a first. Granted, they are not leather recliners with pop-out foot rests. They are fold-out cardboard and unpadded. But they work (we tried one). We’re not sure if they will support a man wearing 70 pounds of Master Chief armor, but they should work for nearly everybody else.

Images from NBC’s Grimm and Dracula will be displayed on the three-sided chair as a way to spread awareness for the network’s presence at the event. Other NBC shows that will be represented at the best include Community, Revolution and The Blacklist. The chairs will be available for free at NBC’s Comic-Con headquarters next week at the Tin Fish restaurant in the Gaslamp District, while supplies last. READ FULL STORY

With the annual pop culture-paloooza just weeks away, the event’s organizers have finally released an official schedule, and if you thought your schedule looked packed based on initial panel reports, prepare yourself for more than a few tough choices.

'Sherlock' going to Comic-Con, premiere set for 2014

Sherlock.jpg

The panel is afoot! Or will be, anyway. Sherlock is going to San Diego Comic-Con for the first time, bringing PBS’ Masterpiece cult hit to the fan convention later this month.

The panel will include Steven Moffat (co-creator, executive producer and writer), Mark Gatiss (co-creator, executive producer and writer) and Sue Vertue (producer). We’re told the actors will not be attending (not too surprising, since Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman are landing big-screen projects) but there will be “surprises.” A Sherlock-loving EW writer named Hibberd will moderate. The panel’s exact day and time will be released by Comic-Con tomorrow.

We can also confirm that season three of Sherlock will indeed run in the U.S. on PBS in 2014, more details on that here (as usual, those Brits will get Sherlock first for some reason … something about making the show?).

Fans will surely have plenty of questions, and we’ll try to see if producers will give us any hints how the great detective survived his rooftop plummet in last season’s cliffhanger (roofhanger?).

Sherlock has previously gone to NYC Comic-Con, but not the San Diego mothership. We’re actually told this is the first time any PBS series has paneled at the 44-year-old fan convention — could that be true? So start your Downton Abbey 2014 lobbying campaign now. SDCC could use more fans dressed in Edwardian hats.

'Walking Dead': Epic season 4 poster

Walking-Dead-Season-4-Banner.jpg

AMC has just unveiled the first The Walking Dead season 4 teaser poster (link below), which will be displayed as a banner at Comic-Con in San Diego later this month. The image has Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) and Daryl Dixon (Norman Reedus) front and center, while Tyreese (Chad L. Coleman) and Michonne (Danai Gurira) — on a horse! — fight off a sea of walkers. Everybody has their weapon of choice. The full image with all the characters is too epic for a mere blog, so here’s a link to the complete full-size image. The Walking Dead returns to AMC this October.

Comic-Con will feature 'The X-Files' 20th anniversary panel

Mulder and Scully fans, the truth is out there…and it’s at Comic-Con.

TV Guide will host a Comic-Con panel celebrating the 20th anniversary of The X-Files, according to an ad in the magazine. Scheduled to appear at the chat, which will take place July 18, are series creator Chris Carter, as well as writer/producers David Amann, Vince Gilligan, Howard Gordon, Darin Morgan, Glen Morgan, John Shiban, Jim Wong as well as more yet-to-be-announced guests.

The question on everyone’s minds, of course, is if series stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson will make an appearance. Although not listed in the ad, EW has confirmed that Gillian Anderson will be in attendance; a rep for David Duchovny did not immediately respond to a request for confirmation. Don’t let us down, Special Agent Mulder!

'Walking Dead' exec producer Robert Kirkman talks about tonight's show and the long-awaited return of Morgan

Tonight’s episode of AMC‘s undead saga the Walking Dead offered more evidence that reunions between acquaintances in the zombie apocalypse are rarely happy events. In real life, such occasions are all about “You look well” and “My son got into college.” But the long-awaited reunion of Andrew Lincoln’s Rick and Lennie James’ Morgan was more “You look insane” and “My son got turned into a zombie by his undead mom, who I then killed.”

'The Walking Dead': Robert Kirkman talks about tonight's show

The-Walking-Dead

The characters on The Walking Dead spent most of tonight’s show enjoying a nice, quiet day — if the word “nice” can be used to describe (in the case of Rick) searching for the ghost of your recently eaten-by-zombies wife and (in the case of Daryl) reminiscing about being physically abused by your father. But things turned very nasty in the final fifteen minutes as the Governor and his goons sent hirsute convict Axel to the great Lynyrd Skynyrd concert in the sky and unleashed a, literal, van-load of walkers onto our beleaguered heroes.
