Comic-Con: Extra Brits

Whilst the Star Wars, Hunger Games, Doctor Who and Game of Thrones panels at this year’s Comic-Con are likely to garner acres of coverage, there are some interesting panels involving British talent to watch out for as well.

Rupert Graves joins Steven Moffat and Sue Vertue at the Sherlock panel on Thursday July 9. Benedict and Martin might be missing, but hopefully the trio will reveal a little bit more about the Sherlock Special – and maybe the new series?

Also on Thursday, former Merlin star Bradley James joins Barabra Hershey at the Damien panel. James plays the title role in the new TV series which follows a grown-up Damien Throne who seemingly has no idea of the events of his childhood.

On Friday expect to see Tom Ellis at the screening of Lucifer, his big new series for Fox. Ellis stars as the devil who makes his home in Los Angeles.

Rupert Evans and Rufus Sewell are due at the launch of their new Amazon series, The Man in the High Castle. The show is set in a post-World War II America where the Nazis have won the war.

Saturday is the big day for Brits at Comic-Con: Lily James, Sam Riley, Jack Huston and Matt Smith will all be at the Pride And Prejudice And Zombies panel. The film is based on the bestselling book which imagines the Bennett sisters taking on Zombies, as well as Mr Darcy.


Matt Smith will also be at the Patient Zero panel alongside John Bradley, Natalie Dormer and Clive Standen. The film also features ‘other beings’ as Smith stars as a man who is “inexplicably immune” to a “super strain of rabies” that has transformed a bunch of people into, well, zombies.
