    Hang with George R.R. Martin as he plans to kill more Thrones characters 
    HBO’s hit fantasy series will be out in force on Friday, with virtually all the major stars, author George R.R. Martin and series producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss out promoting the show. The fourth season starts filming soon, so you’d have to think they’ll have some good hints to drop.

    Talk about some new Haven, and have a Eureka flashback
    The cast of Syfy’s Haven will be out talking up the new season, but they’ll have a new friend with them this year: Former Eureka star Colin Ferguson, who will join the new season for a fairly big arc. So, be sure and get your Syfy fix.

    Watch the Sleepy Hollow pilot with Orci and Kurtzman
    There will be no shortage of new sci-fi series coming this fall, and producers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman will be showing off the pilot for their new Fox show Sleepy Hollow. The initial trailer was better than expected, so it’ll be interesting to see what fans think of the project.

    Learn about Orphan Black season two
    BBC America dipped its toe into the original sci-fi arena this past season, and scored an absolute critical hit with Orphan Black. The series stars and creators will be out promoting the upcoming season season, and discussing the first season

    Fight the skitters at the Falling Skies panel
    This post-invasion series is already coming back for another season, and you’d have to think the series producers and stars (who should all be there) will have a lot to say about it. Plus, they’ll be showing off some brand new footage from the series.

    Let Joss Whedon tease you about his S.H.I.E.L.D. series
    One of the major Marvel properties getting some Comic-Con buzz is the upcoming NBC series Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and Marvel producer (and all around awesome guy) Joss Whedon will be on hand to finally reveal some details about the mysterious TV spin-off from the Avengers-verse.

    Ask the cast of Walking Dead all your burning questions 
    (plus preview S4!)
    From Rick to the Governor, virtually the entire cast of AMC’s hit zombie series will be on hand for a Q&A session. Oh, and they’ll also be debuting the first official look at season four. So, you know, be there.

    Get some teases for season two with the cast of Defiance
    Stars Grant Bowler, Julie Benz and Jaimie Murray will be on hand to talk about the hit Syfy series and offer some teases for the recently-confirmed second season. It’ll be perfect timing, too, with the finale airing this week.
     ____________________________________________
    Hang out with comic god Stan Lee
    Stan Lee will be a part of the Stan Lee’s World of Heroes panel, where he’ll basically be talking pop culture and his ever-growing YouTube channel. But, he could just be reading the phonebook, and it’d still be awesome. 
    ____________________________________________

    See Nikita’s final appearance at Comic-Con
    Sure, The CW might’ve pulled the plug on this cult hit action-espionage series. But, series star Maggie Q and the rest of the cast will be on hand for one last hurrah. So, go bid the series farewell before the fourth and final season debuts at midseason.

    Get some details on Kick-Ass 2 and Riddick
    Universal Pictures is prepping both of these flicks, so they’ll be sharing one ass-kicking panel on Friday. Stars Vin Diesel and Katee Sackhoff will be on hand — and you’d have to think they’ll be showing off some epic, unseen footage.
