Futurama cast absent from Comic-Con panel

Futurama logoOur friends at ComicsAlliance attended the Comic-Con panel for Futurama. Laura Hudson reports a curious absence there:

The original panel for Futurama was billed as event where we would "join executive producers Matt Groening and David X. Cohen, and stars Billy West, Katey Sagal, John DiMaggio, and Maurice LaMarche for high-stakes thrills as a top-ranking FOX executive decides live, on stage, whether Futurama will make yet another triumphant return or whether it is gone forever!"

It was an obvious setup for a Fox exec to reunite the cast and creator and cue wild applause from fans for the revival of the cult favorite cartoon. Unfortunately, as a result of the recent contract disputes and salary cuts for the voice cast -- and the subsequent threats from Fox that they would recast the characters -- none of the voice actors were in attendance, although series creator Matt Groening voiced his support for them, saying that "we love our Futurama actors. We hope that FOX and the actors can come to an agreement as soon as possible."

Lindelof and Cuse display Lost ending at Comic-Con... at least on paper

Lindelof and CuseSince the creators of Lost, Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, are always being accused of making the show up as they go along, they decided it was time to prove they had the last page of the show written.

So at this year's Lost Comic-Con panel, which will be the show's last, Damon and Carlton pulled out the final scene to get that chip off of their shoulders: Two pieces of paper they taunted the audience to steal. Although it won't be easy for anyone to get their hands on those pages.

You'll have to watch the panel video to see why, after the jump.

Bryan Fuller interested in writing superhero comics

by TV Squad Editors, posted Jul 25th 2009 10:00PM
Pushing DaisiesBryan Fuller, whose departure from the writing team of Heroes was seen by some as a harbinger of doom for the troubled superhero show, recently announced that despite the cancellation of his triple Emmy Award-winning TV series Pushing Daisies, he plans to continue to the series -- as a comic book with DC.

Laura Hudson of sister site ComicsAlliance talked to Fuller at Comic-Con about what's in store for Pushing Daisies after it moves from TV to print, and after he mentioned an interest in superhero comics, she asked if he had any interest in writing superhero comics himself -- and he responded with an enthusiastic "yes!"

Since he's already got the hook-up with DC Comics, who knows what might be in store? Check out Fuller (after the jump) reading a copy of "Wednesday Comics" next to dapper DC VP of Publicity David Hyde, and check back for the video interview CA conducted with Fuller for more.
