Additional panelists to be announced.
When the powerful Darkseid and his massive, relentless forces invade Earth, several previously unaligned superheroes—misunderstood and, in some cases, hunted by the authorities—discover that the only way to fend off the attack will be to work together as a cohesive unit. Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Shazam, and, in his origin story, Cyborg combine their talents in an all-out battle to save the planet. Based on the 2012 graphic novel Justice League: Origin by Geoff Johns and Jim Lee, Justice League: War provides a glimpse into the world before the Justice League was created, and offers the initial animated incarnation of DC Entertainment’s “The New 52.”
The cast features Jason O’Mara (Terra Nova, Life on Mars) as Batman, Christopher Gorham (Covert Affairs) as Flash, Justin Kirk (Weeds) as Green Lantern, Shemar Moore (Criminal Minds) as Cyborg, Michelle Monaghan (Mission Impossible III, Gone Baby Gone) as Wonder Woman, Alan Tudyk (Suburgatory, Dollhouse, Serenity) as Superman, Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy) as Shazam, and Rocky Carroll (NCIS) as Silas Stone. On the villainous side, Steve Blum (Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox) provides the voice of Darkseid, and Bruce Thomas (Legally Blonde, Army of Darkness) gives voice to Desaad.
Presented with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment

**UPDATE** The Walking Dead’s Steven Yuen joins the panel for the debut of his performance as Wan, the original Avatar! Voice-actors PJ Byrne (Bolin) and Janet Varney (Korra herself!) have been added to the lineup! Plus there will be an NYCC exclusive poster.

Join Executive Producer Bryan Konietzko and Co-Executive Producer Joaquim Dos Santos at New York Comic Con on Saturday October 12, 2013 at 11am as they pull back the curtain to reveal sneak peeks of what’s to come in Legend of Korra Book 2: Spirits. Exclusive artwork, never-before-seen footage, and a discussion with special guests from the incredible “The Legend of Korra“ voice cast will be featured! Moderated by Bryan Konietzko.
Konietzko says on his Tumblr: “It’s just like San Diego Comic-Con, minus the hyphen! It has been a long time since we made it out to a convention other than SDCC, and we know that fact bums out a lot of non-SoCal/SoCal-accessible fans. We wish that we could venture out more, but even just prepping for and visiting San Diego once a year takes a lot of time out of our jam-packed production schedule, so traveling even further for conventions is usually not an option. But we’re going to make it happen anyway for NYCC, and we’re really looking forward to it!
Unfortunately Mike can’t make it, but Joaquim and I will be joined by some special guests at the panel Saturday, October 12th at 11:00 am. Lots of cool stuff in the works for the presentation. We’re putting together a signing on that Saturday too, so I’ll update with more info when I have it.
See you East Coasters soon!“
Location: Empire Stage 1-E Presented By: Arizona Beverage Co.

LOS ANGELES FELINE RESCUE CENTER KITTY BUNGALOW HOSTS ONE-NIGHT-ONLY BENEFIT:
A CATbaret! AUGUST 4, 2013
BATTLESTAR GALACTICA ACTRESS TRICIA HELFER TO RECEIVE “CATS IN WHITE SPATS” AWARD FROM MICHAEL TRUCCO
Wayward cats no more! Kitty Bungalow Charm School for Wayward Cats, a local Los Angeles non-profit organization specializing in street cat rescue, is producing A CATbaret! – A One-Night Celebrity Musical Celebration of the Alluring Feline. This one-night only benefit concert is on Sunday, August 4 at 7:30pm at the historic Belasco Theater in Downtown Los Angeles. Mingle with the celebrities at a VIP after party following the event.
A CATbaret! is hosted by Fred Willard (Modern Family), who will be joined by: Chris Carmack (Nashville); Bethany Joy Lenz (Dexter; One Tree Hill); Keith David (CLOUD ATLAS); Thomas Dekker (TERMINATOR, SECRET CIRCLE, FOREVERLAND); Briana Evigan (Step Up); Ioan Gruffudd (FANTASTIC FOUR); Kelley Jakle (PITCH PERFECT); Kathryn McCormick (Step Up Revolution); Mindy Sterling (AUSTIN POWERS); Shelley Regner; (PITCH PERFECT) Olesya Rulin (HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL); Drew Seeley (Love Struck: The Musical); and Nicole Sullivan (Mad TV). Plus celebrity choreographers Tabitha and Napoleon and the So You Think You Can Dance dancers, Dancing with the Stars and more!
A CATbaret! is a musical revue of popular cat-themed songs, showcasing music from show tunes such as Be A Lion to Elton John’s classic rock Honky Cat; from the bluesy Black Cat Bone to the 60’s pop hit Walking My Cat Named Dog; plus everything in between.
A highlight of the evening will be the presentation of the CATS IN WHITE SPATS Award, given to those in the entertainment field who have demonstrated commitment to animals. This year Tricia Helfer will receive the award, presented by her cast mate Michael Trucco (Barely Legal, Battlestar Galactica). A former model, Helfer’s best known for her four year star-turn as “Six” on the Award-winning Syfy series BATTLESTAR GALACTICA. She’ll star as “Molly Parker” in the new ABC series Killer Women reuniting with Trucco, premiering early 2014. On the film side, Helfer’s credits include MEMORY with Dennis Hopper; A BEGINNER’S GUIDE TO BEGINNINGS with Harvey Keitel and Scott Caan; and OPEN HOUSE opposite Brian Geraghty and Anna Paquin.
Kitty Bungalow is doing their part to manage the homeless pet population that that finds our city shelters killing 75% of the cats entering the system. On-the-ground rescues are key to lowering this sad statistic. A CATbaret! will help raise the funds to finance the medical services and supplies it takes to have these cats complete Charm School and find loving homes or ultimately re-integrate into their colonies. On July 14, Kitty Bungalow will complete a brand-new charm school facility with first-rate socialization and examination areas for its pupils.
