Watch: Lily Collins Is Similar To Clary Fray In 'Immortal Instruments'

What was Lily Collins secret to setting her "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" character Clary Fray apart from other, more damsel in distress-y type roles in recent movies. "Not making her a constant victim..." she told "Star Wars: The Clone Wars'" Ashley Eckstein from this year's WonderCon. Also adding, "I didn't want her to be this caricature of a fan favorite heroine from a book," referring to the popular series of young adult novels the film is based on, "I wanted her to be someone you could be friends with..."

Check out the video above for more details from Collins.

"The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" is in theaters August 23.

In the Declaration of Independence, on the eve of the birth of a new nation, a hopeful, optimistic Thomas Jefferson wrote that “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

Last weekend at WonderCon, when asked about current parables in popular culture presaging the imminent collapse of human civilization, actor Dean Norris remarked that “There’s always something that’s going to blow everything up.”

Promoting the CBS adaptation of the Stephen King novel "Under the Dome," Norris (who will be playing the villainous Big Jim Rennie in the series), actress Rachelle Lefevre (essaying the role of Julia) and executive producers Neil Baer, Jack Bender and Brian K. Vaughan dipped into some heavy topics in order to discuss the Amblin Entertainment-produced series, the first-ever collaboration between beloved novelist King and filmmaking icon Steven Spielberg.

A common question found in many fan circles these days about DC Comics is, essentially, “How long can The New 52 be considered ‘new’?”. One could argue that the constant refreshing of title since the relaunch, seeing titles getting canceled and replaced with new books, helps inject a dose of freshness into the universe-wide reboot. The shuffling of creative teams doesn’t hurt that either, nor does the chance to tell new stories unburdened by decades of continuity. But at WonderCon 2013, the real answer becomes abundantly clear: the enthusiasm that the creators have for their projects is infectious to the point where they geek out almost as much as the fans do for the characters.

At the “DC: The New 52 Panel” on the second day of the convention, creators gathered to reveal a truckload of future plans to an excited audience. Writers Ann Nocenti, Scott Snyder, James Tynion IV, Kyle Higgins, John Layman, Jimmy Palmiotti, Brian Buccellato, Scott Lobdell and James Robinson were in attendance to spill the beans and tease what’s to come in the lives of characters like Batman, Superman, The Flash and Jonah Hex.

The thing about WonderCon, the thing that really makes it special, is not its size; there are conventions of bigger and smaller scale. It’s not the location; Anaheim, home to Disneyland and therefore inherently connected to Marvel Comics itself; it’s not even the venue, which is one of the great West Coast convention calls.

No, the thing about WonderCon that makes it so special is its total embrace of the so-called “geek subculture”; it feels like it’s the only place in the world where con-goers, cosplayers and comic book fans are more than expected in the neighboring area; they’re encouraged. No one looks down on them, “normal” people engage them in conversation, and a sort of universal bond is created between people both within and without the subculture, even if it’s something as simple as a shared enjoyment of the cinematic adaptations of The Lord of the Rings or an asthestic appreciation for a Fantastic Four cosplay group’s attention to detail.

WonderCon 2012: Joe Hill talks the end of 'Locke and Key'

"Locke & Key" scribe Joe Hill discussed his acclaimed IDW series with us at WonderCon 2012 -- and teased how the series might wrap up. Spoilers!

"So Gabriel Rodriguez and I have been working on the comic for about five years now, and we set up a lot of mysteries. In the current storyline, which is called "Clockworks," we've set out to answer all these mysteries."

Hill also expressed his dislike for hopelessly "open-ended" mysteries in other stories that keep going and going but never seem to get satisfactorily resolved:

"Gabe and I both have disdain for the type of storyline you saw at the end of X-Files where they had five years of mysteries and then set up so much you couldn't answer all the questions."
