Late in last night's episode of AMC's "Halt and Catch Fire," the show's hero, computer salesman Joe MacMillan (Lee Pace), tries to dismiss a competitor who's never experienced the joy of creating something(*). Joe's rival points out that they're both in the computer compatible business, just trying to copy Ibm, and therefore neither can brag much about their flair for originality. (*) As you might expect, this column will have some spoilers for the season to date. Having apparently bested Joe with his own portable Ibm clone, he says, "You tried to be good. We just had to be good enough." It was one of many meta exchanges in the penultimate season 1 episode of "Halt," a series that has not only been reverse-engineered from past cable drama hits, but that seems acutely aware of that fact. So Joe is essentially a 1983 version of Don Draper: a mystery man in expensive suits »

Over the weekend we saw Guardians of the Galaxy Mondo Comic-Con posters for Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Drax the Destroyer (Dave Bautista), and now thanks to Nerdist we’ve got a look a look at the poster for Zoe Saldana’s assassin Gamora by artist Vance Kelly…

San Diego - It wasn't the best of Comic-Con's, but it certainly wasn't the worst. We didn't find out everything we wanted to know about "Doctor Strange" or "Justice League" and favorites such as "Doctor Who" and "Mockingjay" didn't hold panels, but when you get over two minutes of amazing "Avengers: Age of Ultron" footage it sort of makes up for it. Granted, some big names might have been missing from panels for "Game of Thrones" or "The Walking Dead," but they still packed Hall H and entertained the masses. Is there room for more TV shows in the main hall? Sure, but probably only if you expand Sunday's programming. This year the organizers spread out the best movie panels and there were significantly fewer dead blocks of time for smaller movies than in previous years. And special movies such as "The Boxtrolls" benefited with a captive and entertained audience »

The still was the only glimpse audiences received of Gadot as the superhero, as Wonder Woman was not featured in footage screened exclusively for the Comic-Con audience. In the photo, Gadot stands tall in the iconic costume among a seemingly destroyed and burnt ground.
After the photo was released, Gadot shared it with her Twitter followers, writing, “I’m ready…are you?”

There are a few different ways for fans to enjoy The Walking Dead. You can read Robert Kirkman’s comic book series, watch the show on AMC, and play a survivor amidst a world of walkers in Telltale Games’ video game series. Gamers currently play as Clementine in the series’ Season Two installment and more apocalyptic adventures are yet to come, as Telltale Games confirmed at Comic-Con the next installment in their infectiously popular living dead video game series.
Telltale Games President Kevin Bruner announced during the Skybound Entertainment panel at Comic-Con yesterday that they will be coming out with The Walking Dead: Season 3, and they later shared the news via Twitter. Official release details are unknown at this time, but we’ll keep Daily Dead readers updated on further developments.

It’s not easy being the last two men on Earth. Or taking care of the last people on Earth. Well, something like that, I guess. Check out the first teaser trailer for Christian Cantamessa’s “Air,” which boasts the executive producing prowess (whatever that means) of “The Walking Dead’s” Robert Kirkman. Ol Kirk brought along his “Walking Dead” star Norman Reedus to play one of the film’s two leads. The teaser is very mysterious, and I’m already trying to guess its plot twist. Oh come on, you know there’s a plot twist. I think I have it figured out going by what little evidence is presented, but I won’t say just in case I’m right. Air is about two custodians who struggle to hold onto their sanity living in an underground bunker with cryogenically frozen people meant to re-populate society. Starring Norman Reedus, »

Horror truly has a home at Comic-Con, especially the zombie-filled killing machine that is The Walking Dead. Just a short day after the teaser trailer for Season 5 of the TV show was unleashed on the unholy horde of cosplayers at San Diego Comic-Con...
...Telltale Games has confirmed the third season of their The Walking Dead video game series.
The previous titles in the series have been released as downloadable games for last-gen consoles. No word has been given if gamers who have upgraded to the more current hardware will finally have a chance to explore the world of The Walking Dead.
Not even a release window was given for the next season, and Telltale is still busy working on Tales from the Borderlands and Game of Thrones games, both slated for 2014 releases. Pundits believe the game won’t be out until 2015.

As you can probably guess, The Walking Dead is most likely not getting a laugh track anytime soon, but the cast was happy to elaborate on some rumors that the show would become more light-hearted when they stopped by the EW Hideout. Lauren Cohan, Norman Reedus, Michael Cudlitz, Steven Yeun, and Gurira also joked about potential Comic-Con disguises and more unlikely Walking Dead scenarios—like picnics. »

“I guarantee you, things are crawling out of the shadows on a scale we have never seen before, John.” Thankfully, occult detective John Constantine’s knowledge and wit stand between us and these increasingly daring evil spirits. Based on a popular DC comic book series, Constantine is coming to NBC this October, and a new trailer was unveiled at Comic-Con yesterday, along with a behind-the-scenes music featurette.
NBC’s Constantine will premiere on Friday, October 24th at 10:00 pm. It was recently revealed that leading lady Lucy Griffiths, who plays Liv in the pilot episode, had left the show and will be replaced with a new female character straight out of the comics: Zed, a woman with a dark past who aids Constantine in his battle against malicious forces from Hell. Actress Angelica Celaya (Dallas, Burn Notice) will play Zed.

This hot new trailer for the upcoming thriller Constantine was unveiled on Saturday, July 26, as Warner Bros. Television Presents a Night of DC Entertainment at Comic-Con 2014. Matt Ryan stars as John Constantine, an irreverent, working-class con man and occult expert waging war against the forces of darkness - from both within himself and the outside world. Take a look at the first footage before the series premieres Friday, October 24, at 10/9c on NBC, then read on for information about newly confirmed characters.
Series creator David S. Goyer recently spoke with IGN, where he confirmed that Papa Midnite and the Newcastle Crew from the Hellblazer comics will be popping up in Season 1.
"We have access to the occult corner of the DC Universe. I'm sure many of you saw the Doctor Fate helmet [in the pilot], and that was a clear indicator of our intentions."
The first trailer for Air has debuted at Comic-Con 2014. This thriller comes from comics publishing imprint Skybound Entertainment, founded by The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman. The Walking Dead star Norman Reedus is joined by Djimon Hounsou as two caretakers struggling to survive in an underground cryogenic facility which houses the frozen personnel who will re-establish society. Watch the first footage from this edge-of-your-seat ride and check out the first poster.
Air is set in an underground cryogenic facility after a nuclear fallout renders the atmosphere unbreathable. Air centers on its two custodial workers, who take care of the cryogenically sleeping personnel that are to re-establish society, but they struggle to preserve their own sanity and lives while maintaining the extremely fragile environment of the last livable place on earth.
Now that Comic Con is winding down, some of the trailers showcased at the event are starting to make their way online (officially). Here, we're compiling a few of the trailers that came out for the upcoming slate of TV shows based on popular comics, including The Walking Dead (which also has a premiere date!), Gotham, Constantine, and more! Come inside to check them all out!
Next up is a new look at Constantine which gives us a look at some new characters who will be popping up in the series.
We've seen some footage of Gotham before, but this new trailer is pretty nice in that it's very cinematic and gives off a nice movie feel »
