Kevin Smith Meets "Heroes," and More from Comic-Con

Kevin Smith Meets "Heroes," and More from Comic-Con

While Phasekitty was collecting news from many of the movie panels at Comic-Con in San Diego this weekend, many TV shows were breaking news of their own. Among the most exciting bits: Kevin Smith will be directing an episode of "Heroes: Origins," the spinoff that's set to air next spring. The announcement apparently took even the "Heroes" cast by surprise, as one member exclaimed, "No way! Are you serious?"

Some of the other tidbits:

  • At the panel for "24," producers said they were "98 percent sure" that the show was moving to Washington, D.C., for Day 7. According to executive producer Manny Coto, Jack Bauer will be put in front of a congressional committee and asked to answer for his perceived crimes.
  • "Ripper," the long-awaited "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" spin-off, could actually be happening. Joss Whedon announced at the convention that he's close to an agreement to bring the 90-minute film to the BBC.
  • "Battlestar Galactica" producers talked a bunch about what was coming up for them next season. I'm not sure what to make of the announcements — other than the news that Lucy Lawless will return for two or three episodes — so fans, have at it!
  • Team user KerryG is compiling all of the "Supernatural" reports from Comic-Con, including interviews with star Jensen Ackles.

I'm so bummed I missed this announcement at the Heroes panel! I was too busy saving my seats in Hall H to make sure I saw Disney and Marvel. I heard the Heroes line wrapped around the upstairs of the convention center 3 times and that people that stood in line for almost two hours got denied! They'll have to get a bigger room for it next year!
