Fans have been looking forward to the introduction of the Governor ever since "The Walking Dead" teased the prison in the finale of the second season, and they are not alone. MTV Splash Page editor Josh Wigler caught up with the cast of AMC's hit show and showrunner Glen Mazzara to talk about what we can expect in season three, and they couldn't get enough of teasing David Morrissey's portrayal of The Governor.
"I can't give anything away, but I will say that he's charming, devious, sexy and unbelievably evil," actress Laurie Holden said. "I think people are going to be knocked out, because he's a wonderful actor, he's fantastic. I can't imagine anyone else playing the Governor."
There's plenty we know about Oliver Queen's character in the CW's upcoming "Arrow," but the one aspect of his storyline we're most intrigued by is his five years spent on the island. We've already met our China White, but when MTV News sat down with stars Stephen Amell and Katie Cassidy at Comic-Con, we asked just how the island storyline would work in the context of the rest of the plot.
"If we set our show in the real world, if we ground it in reality, then he doesn't just magically get archery skills and jujitsu skills and parkour skills and a sense of hearing and just a keen awareness. That is learned, and I would wager to bet painfully earned along the way," Amell said. "So it's really fun because I get to play all those different characters along the way. I think that the Arrow character is actually him. Technically I have a costume on, but that seems to be the real me."
It's the final day of Comic-Con, and the final live show for our friends at MTV Geek. It's an exciting show, too: they'll have interviews with the cast and creators of "The Walking Dead," highlights from the "Iron Man" costume contest with a special appearance from Robert Downey Jr., and much more. Watch in the player below!
We might not have been in the panel to see the "Man of Steel" teaser that impressed many Comic-Con attendees, but we at least have its official teaser poster.
The "Man of Steel" Facebook page dropped the poster, which shows us a Superman cast in shadow. Is that indicative of the movie as a whole? Maybe, especially based on the Twitter reactions of people who saw the footage.

Zachary Levi really knows how to show people a good time – especially at Comic-Con. For the second consecutive year, Levi hosted Nerd HQ, an off-campus gathering where fans and celebrities can interact in a more informal setting than the Convention Center. Nerd HQ’s panels, called Conversations for a Cause, have raised several thousand dollars for Operation Smile.
One of the hottest tickets at Nerd HQ was the conversation with Nathan Fillion. The afternoon of Friday the 13th, after appearing at Comic-Con’s 10th anniversary “Firefly” panel and subsequent press conference, Fillion was on hand to answer fans’ burning questions. It was a fun-filled hour. Here are some highlights.

This, True Believes, is why people stock up on coffee and snacks, pull up lawn chairs and do whatever it takes to endure those horrendously long lines for Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con: Marvel's "Iron Man 3" panel unleashed a torrent of information about several in-production properties including "Guardians of the Galaxy," the sequels to "Thor" and "Captain America" and much more.
The proceedings kicked off with a montage looking back on the last several years of Comic-Con presentations, including a bit from Marvel Films honcho Kevin Feige talking about how he'd love to see an Avengers movie way back in the pre-schawarma days of 2006. The montage wrapped up with these incredibly exciting words: "PHASE TWO BEGINS… NOW!" And boom, here came the Marvel bombshells faster than you can say "Excelsior!"
Marvel has big plans for the lucky fans in Hall H today. Their Comic-Con presentation is easily one of the most anticipated of the entire show, and with good reason — a billion and a half dollars worth of reason, in fact.
Among the news that's expected to drop at Comic-Con is the identity of Marvel's mystery movie dated for August 2014. Marvel Studios co-president Louis D'Esposito strongly suggested in an interview with MTV News that the title would finally be revealed during the Hall H presentation, and he even weighed in on two of the leading candidates: "Guardians of the Galaxy" and "Black Panther."
"Arrow" made its big debut at Comic-Con this year, and heralded in its Ballroom 20 premiere by introducing a brand new actress to the series: Kelly Hu.
Hu is no stranger to the comic book world, having starred as Lady Deathstrike in "X2: X-Men United" and voiced characters in Cartoon Network's "Young Justice." She'll be playing China White in the CW's take on the "Green Arrow," a character who was originally introduced in DC's "Green Arrow: Year One." As "Arrow" follows the origin story of Oliver Queen as he takes on his superhero identity, it makes sense that China would be a part of the story.
The MTV Geek gang continue their live-streaming adventures at Comic-Con today, chatting with the likes of William Shatner, Felicia Day and the casts of "Supernatural," "Revolution," "Warehouse 13" and more. Plus, Josh Fialkov and more from the MTV Comics group will be swinging by as well. See all the action in the player below!
"The Dark Knight Rises" might not have a Comic-Con panel this year, but that doesn't mean we can't bring you brand new interviews with the cast and crew! MTV News recently had the chance to sit down with director Christopher Nolan and stars Christian Bale and Joseph Gordon-Levitt to discuss the third and final movie in their Batman trilogy. As you might have already assumed from the marketing campaign for the movie, it's going to be very different from the films that came before.
"Gotham has become a cynical place," Gordon-Levitt teased. "People are just going with the status quo. The fat cats are getting fatter."
