Joss Whedon confirmed for Friday's Comic-Con. He'll be in Ballroom 20 at 5.30pm. There's some other fab looking Whedonverse panels on that day as well (including the previously mentioned Firefly reunion).

12:30-1:30 Firefly 10-Year Anniversary Reunion- Calling all Browncoats to unite! It has been 10 years since the crew of the Serenity took flight in the now infamous show Firefly. Science Channel will reunite, for the first time ever, Captain Mal Reynolds and the crew from the ship. Join Joss Whedon, Nathan Fillion, Adam Baldwin, Gina Torres, Alan Tudyk, Morena Baccarin, Sean Maher, Summer Glau, and many more for a trip down memory lane, some special surprises, and exclusive Science Channel giveaways. SHINY. Ballroom 20

1:45-2:45 Bones- Creator and executive producer Hart Hanson, executive producer Stephen Nathan and stars David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel are on hand to discuss the shocking finale of season 7 as well as what's in store for Booth and Brennan in an exciting season 8. The panel will be followed by a fan Q&A. Ballroom 20

5:30-6:30 Dark Horse: Joss Whedon- Long before directing the biggest superhero film in history, Joss Whedon rewarded fans the world over with some of the most compelling characters and plotlines in the history of comics, television, and movies. Here's your chance to find out what he has in store for us next, and hear exclusive insight into Buffy the Vampire Slayer and the ever-expanding number of titles in Dark Horse's line of Season 9 comics. Ballroom 20

5:45-6:45 Spartacus: War of the Damned- Liam McIntyre (McLeod's Daughters) returns to Comic-Con, along with Manu Bennett (30 Days of Night), executive producer Steven S. DeKnight (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), and a few surprise appearances to show footage from the final season of Spartacus: War of the Damned, airing on STARZ in January 2013. They will also discuss some of the bonus features on the Spartacus: Vengeance DVD, available September 11. Room 6BCF

6:00-7:00 Girls Gone Genre- Listen to and talk with women who write, read, game, and perform in arenas that are statistically dominated by men. What happens when traditionally "male" genres are reinvented by female writers and embraced by female fans? Sex and the City (or for that matter, Girls), it ain't. Meet the women who like to play with trucks and Barbies. And Wolverine action figures. And flux capacitors. Panelists: Marti Noxon (Buffy, Angel), Jane Espenson (Battlestar Galactica, Torchwood), Karyn Kusama (Jennifer's Body), and Angela Robinson (True Blood). Room 7AB

6:45-7:45 Defiance- Syfy and Trion unite television and gaming in the biggest entertainment event of 2013: Defiance. Grant Bowler (Nolan), Julie Benz (Amanda Rosewater), Tony Curran (Datak Tarr), Jamie Murray (Stahma Tarr), Kevin Murphy (executive producer), Nick Beliaeff (SVP, development, Trion Worlds), Rob Hill (senior producer, Trion Worlds), and Mark Stern (president, Syfy original content and co-head UCP) discuss how Defiance defies everything you know about conventional storytelling. Moderated by Geoff Boucher (Los Angeles Times). Room 6DE

7:00-8:00 And Then What Happened? Serialized Shows That Ended Too Soon- You saw every episode, you followed every storyline, you hoped against hope that they'd get another season...and they didn't. What would have happened if the show had kept going? Hear writer/producers Andrew Chambliss (Once Upon a Time), Scott M. Gimple (The Walking Dead), Ian Goldberg (Once Upon a Time), Javier Grillo-Marxuach (Lost), and Jose Molina (The Vampire Diaries) talk about the stories that weren't to be on such shows as Dollhouse, FlashForward, Firefly, and The Middleman. Room 7AB

8:30-9:30 Space Command: Bold Adventures in the Far Reaches of Space- Science fiction legends Marc Scott Zicree (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Doug Drexler (Battlestar Galactica), Neil Johnson (Humanity's End), Michael Reaves (Star Wars, Batman), and Ian McCaig (Star Wars) premiere footage from the highly anticipated epic adventure series that spans 200 years of Galactic History. Stars Doug Jones (Pan's Labyrinth), Katherine McEwan (Humanity's End), Christina Moses (Star Trek New Voyages), and Amber Benson (Buffy) discuss their roles. The visionary team gives you an early look at the stunning character design and visual effects, plus the epic score from David Raiklen. Inspired by heroic science fiction of the '50s. A revolution in film funding and distribution, made by A-list creators for the fans free from studio restrictions. Room 5AB

1:45-2:45 Bones—Creator and executive producer Hart Hanson, executive producer Stephen Nathan and stars David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel are on hand to discuss the shocking finale of season 7 as well as what's in store for Booth and Brennan in an exciting season 8. The panel will be followed by a fan Q&A. Ballroom 20
There's also Community (they love Firefly), Korra, Arrow, Powerful Women in Pop Culture and Breaking Bad all in Ballroom 20. It's going to be a long day.
I missed Bones, cheers.
Man, Ballroom 20 would be the place to camp all-day at Comic-Con.
YAY!!!!! DEFINITELY staying in Ballroom 20 all day. If anyone wants to follow my live SDCC tweets, follow me at @lisatwingomez on twitter.
My fear is that there will be a Firefly booth signing between that panel and Joss', which is usually the sort of thing I try to get photos of. Might have to do the bathroom pass thing.
They should put Firefly panel in Hall H. I firmly believe it could fill it to the brim at this point...or really at any point.

Except then I'd never get into Joss' panel over in Ballroom 20 later.
Hall H holds 6,500 people.
Friday is going to be intense! Going to be a long day for sure. I am going to be waiting in line very early!
Friday looks like a fantastic day in Ballroom 20. Hall H also has some good panels with, I would think, a large portion of same fans. For me, it would be no contest - Firefly and Joss all the way - but it may be easier to get into Hall H for once.
Worth noting that the Firefly panel now lists Gina, Morena and Summer as participating (yay!) The Science release inexplicably left them off, possibly as unconfirmed.
Although it was just yesterday that Morena said she was trying to make it work, so I'm not sure if that's confirmed or not.
Hall H holds 6,500 people.

I feel like there's a low ratings joke in there somewhere...
There was, actually. If only 6,500 people had watched in the first place...
Also, if you are going to be in town for Preview Night on Wednesday, the Annual Dinner for WHEDONesque-Type Fans is happening at 5PM, and you can RSVP so the reservation can be adjusted as needed.
And if you're a photographer or want to talk to photographers attending the con I'm setting up a photo tweetup at noon on Preview Night as well. I'll try and get b!X to put it on his calendar, or you can check my Twitter for info (@danregal). This will be a chance to get tips, share ideas, find out the best places for cosplay photos, etc.
SO excited!!! Firefly, Bones, AND Joss Whedon in the same room?!?

Get prepared for me to live in that room! :D
