1. Orphan Black News!
We know courtesy of the
Orphan Black panel that season two of the show will air in Spring 2014, probably April, and it will introduce new clones.
Tatiana Maslany also had something interesting to say on when she knew her show was really taking off: "There’s feminist writers writing about the themes of the show … exploring the individuality of these women and all that kind of stuff, which speaks really to my heart and was really exciting for me.”
2.Hugh Jackman Tweeted, Cosplayed as Wolverine
Hugh Jackman tweeted the above pic. He approves of Comic-Con, and we approve of him. He also said at the Days of Future Past panel—where pretty much the whole cast showed up, much to the surprise of the fans in Hall H—that he walked around the con in full Wolverine regalia, and "Not one person stopped me. Not one. One guy goes, 'Eh, not bad." And another one said, 'Way too tall, baby.""
3.Karen Gillan Shaved Her Head to Play Guardians of the Galaxy's Space Pirate
Days of Future Past cast wasn't the only one to make a surprise appearance. The Guardians of the Galaxy crew—now tens days into filming—showed up as well. Oh, and partway through the panel Karen Gillan removed a wig and revealed she's shaved her head to play space pirate Nebula.

4.Peter Dinklage's Character in Days of Future Past Confirmed
Speaking of the
Days of Future Past panel: The rumor that Peter Dinklage's character in the movie is Sentinel creator Bolivar Trask has been confirmed.
5.Ariel to Be Part of Once Upon a Time's World
Once Upon a Time panel gave us the heads-up on two new characters who will appear in the show's third season: the Little Mermaid will be in Storybrooke, and Tinkerbell will be, of course, in Neverland. Showrunner Adam Horowitz teased that Tink has a "surprising connection" to one of the characters whose actor was at the panel (that would be Emma, Snow, Charming, Hook, Regina, Gold, and Neal).

6. Once Upon a Time In Wonderland Casts Naveen Andrews
Meanwhile, at the panel for
Once spinoff Once Upon a Time in Wonderland: Lost's Naveen Andrews has joined the cast as Jafar. The actor said Wonderland's version will be "radically different" from the animated movie version, which it would have to be, because why the heck would Jafar have anything to do with Wonderland?
