Earlier this month, BuddyTV gave a rundown of the San Diego Comic-Con schedule, which you can learn more about here. One of the shows participating in annual multi-genre fan convention is Heroes, which will kick off an exclusive first look at the “Volume 5: Redemption” trailer on July 25, Saturday at 3:15pm to 4:15pm.
There’s also going to be that Q&A with Heroes creator Tim Kring and some of the show’s cast members, including Jack Coleman, Masi Oka, Adrian Pasdar and Zachary Quinto, along with guest stars Robert Knepper, Dawn Olivieri, Ray Park and Madeline Zima. Recently, however, it has been announced that cast members Hayden Panettiere and Milo Ventimiglia has jumped on board as well to make Comic-Con just a little more special.
Panettiere, who plays Claire, and Ventimiglia, who plays Peter, have been the subject of controversy ever since they started dating in December 2007 —which they initially denied. While some were pleased with their relationship, many were appalled, in part because of their 12-year age gap. The couple called it quits in February, after reports surfaced that Panettiere was spotted with 21-year-old Jesse McCartney at a bar where the more age appropriate lovers were reportedly all over one another.
The split was reportedly mutual so there’s no need to worry about the tension on the set of the NBC series. However, rumors surged once again that Panettiere is playing it dirty on Heroes, and wants nothing to do with her ex-boyfriend. Hopefully, the former couple’s appearance at Comic-Con will shut down rumors about an amicable split that has turned bitter.
The fourth season of Heroes kicks off with a two-hour premiere on Monday, September 21.
For the rest of the Comic-Con schedule, check out the schedule on Thursday, Friday, and Sunday.
