Today, the big event at Comicon was the panel for Heroes, the massive NBC hit recently nominated for an Outstanding Drama Series Emmy award.  The panel featured virtually the whole cast, including Noah Gray-Cabey, James Kyson Lee, Greg Grunberg, Adrian Pasdar, Sendhil Ramamurthy, Jack Coleman, Ali Larter, Milo Ventimiglia, Hayden Panettiere, Masi Oka as well as creator Tim Kring and the man behind all of Isaac’s artwork, Tim Sale.

They offered up some interesting clues about a the new anthology series Heroes: Origins and a teaser clip of the second season.

Read on for the hottest details revealed at the panel:

-The Heroes: Origins six=part anthology will begin airing in late April through the end of May.  Kring shocked the fans and even the cast when he announced Kevin Smith will write and direct one of the Origins episodes.  Smith was then brought on stage and talked about how much he loves the show and is excited to do some cool stuff with it.

-The panel also featured a teaser trailer for the second season.  Here are some of the scenes and shots they showed: Samurai knights in Japan.  Nathan sporting a massive beard.  Claire cutting off her pinky toe.  Peter locked in a cage.  Matt Parkman shooting someone. It’s not clear when this footage takes place, but it can definitely reassure fans that the Petrelli brothers and Officer Parkman will return, despite having their fates left in doubt during the first season finale.

-About the new Heroes, Dominican actress Dania Ramirez who will play Maya, was on the panel, and looking quite hot.  They also talked about Monica, another new hero from a post-Katrina New Orleans, though no actress was announced.

-Ubisoft is making a Heroes video game.

-For reasons beyond explanation, Danny Bonaduce was in attendance…in the audience, asking a question.
