22 July 2016 9:56 AM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

We’ve got questions, and you’ve (maybe) got answers! With another week of TV gone by, we’re lobbing queries left and right about shows including Zoo, Girl Meets World, Stranger Things, UnREAL and Little Liars!

1 | In Episode 2 of Netflix’s Stranger Things: Assuming that upon leaving her sleepover at Pete’s, Nancy took the same route home (by foot or, like, hitched a ride), wouldn’t she have seen that Barb’s car was still parked down the road? Also, were you shouting at the screen for Joyce to make the The Martian set up a Christmas light alphabet? »

As far as confirmations go, we know that at least four films are going to play a big role at Warner Bros.' eagerly-awaited panel tomorrow.

Check it out below:   In the irreverent spirit of fun that made “The Lego® Movie” a worldwide phenomenon, the self-described leading man of that ensemble – Lego Batman – stars in his own big-screen adventure: “The Lego® Batman Movie.” But there are big changes brewing in Gotham, and if he wants to save the city from The Joker’s hostile takeover, Batman may »

Watch J.J. Abrams Quiz Conan on Comic-Con Credentials

22 July 2016 7:43 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

After filming his late-night show at Comic-Con for two straight years, Conan O'Brien has started to think he's an "expert at everything comic book-related." But he couldn't earn his nerd credentials until passing the official "Comic-Con citizenship test," administered by Star Wars: The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams.

The filmmaker dropped by Conan's temporary San Diego event, quizzing the host on all matters sci-fi/fantasy. Abrams fired off difficult questions ("In the Lord of the Rings trilogy, what city is the capitol of Gondor?"), as O'Brien's answers grew more surreal and comedic. »

Stephen Amell, Grant Gustin And Melissa Benoist Talk Superheroics On Conan

22 July 2016 7:21 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The stars of The CW's Arrow, Flash and Supergirl were on Conan O'Brien last night and kicked off their appearance with a discussion about the difficulties of wearing superhero costumes. Check out Amell's shifty eyes when O'Brien mentions that Green Arrow is getting a new costume. As it turns out, that was just the set up for a joke but Amell did look a bit worried there, as if something that shouldn't be discussed was about to be leaked. Perhaps we'll be seeing Green Arrow in a new costume during the show's Sdcc panel on Saturday. Last month, Amell confirmed a new costume was in the works, though it remains to be seen rather it will be a slight tweak to Oliver Queen's Season 4 duds or a complete overhaul.     Conan also referenced Melissa and Grant's time on Glee and asked whether there's any chance of a musical crossover between the two shows. »

22 July 2016 3:30 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

When the cast of HBO's hit comedy series Silicon Valley paid a visit to the Conan show on Wednesday night, they were without two of their key components: T.J. Miller, who is in London prepping for Steven Spielberg's Ready Player One, and Martin Starr, who is in Atlanta, filming Marvel Studios' Spider-Man: Homecoming. Fortunately for us, the latter decided to send in a video message from set where he spills a few details on his role in the upcoming Tom Holland-led Spider-Man reboot. Check out the clip below:   After being bitten by a genetically-altered spider and receiving spider-like abilities, teenage Peter Parker fights crime in the streets of New York as the masked superhero known as Spider-Man. Spider-Man: Homecoming features: Tom Holland as Peter Parker/Spider-Man Marisa Tomei as May Parker Robert Downey Jr. as Tony Stark/Iron Man Michael Keaton as a to-be-confirmed character Zendaya Coleman »

22 July 2016 2:57 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

In a pre-taped segment to introduce the first of their many Conan-Con shows, the always hilarious duo of Conan O'Brien and Andy Richter find themselves at war with one another after a screening of a movie that may only ever happen in our dreams: Avengers vs. X-Men. The battle breaks out after the pair find themselves at odds over something fairly trivial, although more often than not, that's exactly how it starts. The fever, the rage, the feeling of powerlessness that turns good men... cruel. Check out the sketch below and don't forget to catch the cast of Suicide Squad on Saturday night's installment: Plus, here are a couple more bits from their Wednesday show, including one where the duo try to lift Thor's hammer, but aren't as successful as you'd think:   Fearing the actions of a god-like Super Hero left unchecked, Gotham City's own formidable, forceful vigilante takes on Metropolis's most revered, »

J.J. Abrams gives Conan a Comic-Con citizenship test

21 July 2016 7:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Although this isn't Conan O'Brien's first time broadcasting from Comic-Con, he still has to prove his geeky worthiness — and who better to quiz him than J.J. Abrams himself? In this "Comic-Con Citizenship Test" segment, Abrams quizzes O'Brien on Star WarsHarry Potter, and everything in between. As expected, the quiz isn't just straightforward but takes some funny, Conan -esque turns. What films come before Star Trek Beyond? Well, Star Trek Bed and Star Trek Bath, of course. There are also the general potshots at Donald Trump and the Rio Olympics — watch the whole quiz below.   »

Conan O’Brien on Why He’s Happy to Return to Comic-Con This Week While Everyone Else Gets Political

21 July 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As several of his competitors headed to Cleveland for the Republican National Convention this week, Conan O’Brien went the other direction.

O’Brien is back at San Diego Comic-Con to tape episodes of his TBS talk show this Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. It’s the second year in a row for “Conan” at the city’s historic Spreckles Theater, and the host told IndieWire he’s much happier to be here.

“Last year was such an instant realization that this is perfect for us,” he said. “There’s an overlap between our fans and people who would be here anyway at Comic-Con. We’ve been referencing these comic myths for the entire time that I’ve been on television. Even my whole look is comic book-y. I’ve always looked like I’ve been animated!”

Wednesday’s night first Conan of the Sdcc season opened with the host and his longtime sidekick Andy Richter squaring off in a Batman v Superman homage/takedown.

‘Star Trek Beyond’ Premiere: San Diego Comic-Con Pays Tribute to Anton Yelchin and Leonard Nimoy

20 July 2016 9:01 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

The sun wasn’t due to set in San Diego until 7:54pm Wednesday evening, which made the predicted start time for the premiere of “Star Trek Beyond,” at 8pm, a clear imposssibility. But the wait was worth it.

For its Comic-Con premiere, Paramount brought the newest installment of the 50-year-old franchise to Embarcadero Marina Park South, an open space just south of the San Diego Convention Center — allegedly the first-ever outdoor IMAX screening ever held, said to have 3,000 people in attendance.

Bts footage screened in the prelude to the screening sold the film as fun and full of heart, but the mood was an odd mix of sober and joyful, due to the recent tragic loss of star Anton Yelchin.

Perhaps because of the venue location — right on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, with the breeze blowing in, Zachary Quinto observed that “It’s peaceful here. »

Emmys 2016 Trivia: Amy Poehler & Tina Fey Shared A Nod & 20 Other Wild Things About This Year’s Nominations

14 July 2016 1:56 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

Amy Poehler and Tina Fey made history Thursday morning. The pals were nominated in the Guest Actress in a Comedy Emmy category for hosting “Saturday Night Live.”

That’s not unusual — “SNL” hosts are nominated for Emmys all the time. But here’s what’s unique: Poehler and Fey were nominated as a single, combined entity. Earlier this year, the TV Academy accepted their joint submission, and their names appeared together on nomination ballots.

That’s never happened in an acting category before because, well, a person is generally one person. But this was a unique circumstance: “SNL” guest hosts are eligible for guest star Emmys – but usually even comedy teams are nominated separately. (For example, Keegan-Michael Key is nominated this year for “Key & Peele” in the supporting comedy actor category, but Jordan Peele is not. »

Two months after he revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that he got a vasectomy without first discussing it with his wife, Kristen Bell, the writer, director, producer and star of the upcoming CHiPS movie appeared on Conan Tuesday and fawned over Conan O'Brien's physique. "I'm well documented: I love men's bodies—as I love women's bodies! I just love the human form. So, I happened to notice when we were eating dinner, I was like, 'Your chest is really protruding.' And what's great about noticing men's bodies is you can immediately touch. I was like, 'Man, are you working out?' And then I was feeling your biceps and your »
