'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).

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.”

'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.”

They couldn’t be on stage in person. But they made a hilarious video. Heavily in-demand Sherlock stars Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman taped a greeting to fans attending the show’s first-ever San Diego Comic-Con panel, where the producers dished about the upcoming third season.

In the video below, Martin has a brief bit from The Hobbit set. While Cumberbatch says he’s tired of keeping secrets for all his big screen roles like Khan in Star Trek: Into Darkness and Smaug in The Hobbit and decides to solve the cliffhanger that has everybody guessing — how Sherlock Holmes survived his rooftop plummet at the end of season 2. Stuffed animals and a helicopters are involved.

“It’s been so much fun, the scripts are just a delight,” Cumberbatch says of Sherlock‘s upcoming season. “F–k it, I’m going to tell you how Sherlock survived … I know you guys like your spoilers and I feel so much better telling you. Freedom!”

Check out the video, exclusively on EW.com, and come back to Inside TV for Darren Franich’s coverage of the show’s Comic-Con panel later today. READ FULL STORY

'Psych' announces premiere date for musical

The Psych musical has a premiere date!

Today the USA Network announced that the much-anticipated Psych: The Musical will air as a two-hour episode Dec. 15.

In the episode, which was screened last night during San Diego Comic-Con, Shawn (James Roday) and Gus (Dulé Hill) attempt to track down an escaped playwright madman, played by Anthony Rapp. Once their investigation hits a snag, however, Shawn and Gus are forced to consult with the one person Z confided in while in the institution … a dangerous and familiar villain from Shawn’s past.

Meanwhile, the USA Network also announced that “A Nightmare on State Street” was the victor of the first-ever  Psych fan vote, in which Psych-os voted on which new episode they wanted to see produced as part of the eighth season. In the episode, an exhausted Gus will enter dream therapy to understand the cause of his recent night terrors.

Before all the action, the Psych cast stopped by the EW studio at the Hard Rock Hotel. Stay tuned for that video as part of EW’s ongoing coverage of Comic Con.

'Person of Interest': See the show's Easter egg-filled Comic-Con poster -- EXCLUSIVE

person-of-interest-poster.jpg

There’s so much for Person of Interest fans to analyze in this EW exclusive poster that we don’t even know where to begin ourselves. But executive producer Jonathan Nolan sums up the theme nicely, saying: “In light of the news about PRISM, we felt this poster celebrated both our panic at America’s descent into an Orwellian nightmare and our excitement over all the free marketing we’re getting out of it.”

The poster will be available to fans at Comic-Con this weekend, and fans on-site also have a chance to see the cast and producers live, when they participate in a panel Saturday at 4 p.m. in room 6BCD. Nolan, fellow EP Greg Plageman, and stars Jim Caviezel, Michael Emerson, Kevin Chapman, Sarah Shahi are set to appear. Recurring guest star Amy Acker will also be on hand.
