We’ve told you about all the cool video game panels and we’ve clued you into the coolest comic book panels you need to attend during NYCC 2014.
But the biggest attractions every year (including this year) are the panels that discuss the future of TV shows and movie franchises. This year’s TV show lineup is full of comic book characters and familiar animated characters, plus there are some major movies dropping real soon.
These are the top 10 TV and movie panels you’ll need to hit up!
1. AMC’s The Walking Dead – Saturday, October 11 • 3:30pm – 4:30pm in Main Stage 1-D

Wow! We didn’t even realize that six whole decades have passed since the introduction of Japan’s most badass monster, Godzilla (GOJIRA!). This celebratory panel will show some love to the big creature, speak about the 2014 film reboot and hopefully offer up some hints at what’s to come. Japan’s most recognizable Mon-Star is making a comeback!

One of the most exciting new superhero shows on the horizon is the Netflix exclusive, Daredevil.

Marvel’s Head of TV Jeph Loeb will be on hand to give fans some extra info on Dardevil’s new streaming web series. In 2015, Daredevil will make his grand return.

Speaking of Disney and Frozen, Once Upon a Time will switch up this season’s formula by portraying real-life visions of the film’s characters. Elsa, the Ice Queen of Arendelle, will make her TV show debut in the world of Storybrooke. The creators of the show will be on hand to give its hardcore fans a sneak peek into the upcoming season. This one’s special screening event will be worth the price of NYCC 2014 admission by itself.
