Gillian Anderson on 'X-Files' future: 'I think this will be it for me'
Gillian Anderson says she does not intend to continue playing FBI Special Agent Dana Scully past the upcoming, 11th season of The X-Files.

Co-starring David Duchovny, the sci-fi series initially ran from 1993 to 2002. It was revived last year for a 10th season and is scheduled to return for Season 11 in January.

Asked if she would be open to return for more episodes beyond that, the 49-year-old actress told reporters at New York Comic Con Sunday: "No. I think this will be it for me."

So, what made her want to do this season?

"Because it felt like it wasn't over. It didn't feel like we necessarily delivered everything that the fans were expecting from us last time," she replied. "And, so, it was that."

Anderson said she disagreed with an earlier statement by show creator Chris Carter, who said he decided to return to The X-Files because Anderson and Duchovny wanted to do it.

"My version is that David and Chris wanted to do it," she laughed. "And it was a matter of whether I was going to jump on-board or be the bad guy -- forever."


William Shatner remembers Adam West: 'I really admired him'
William Shatner says he knew his fellow television icon Adam West for decades before they were cast in the cartoon adventure, Batman vs. Two-Face.

Although Shatner plays the titular villain to West's hero, the pair did not record their lines together or meet up to discuss their performances during the production of the animated film.

Best known for playing Batman in an iconic, live-action TV series in the 1960s, West died in June at the age of 88.

Asked by UPI at New York Comic Con Sunday about how well he knew West, Shatner replied, "I knew Adam.

"A long, long time ago, we did a pilot together prior to Batman, prior to Star Trek. I played Alexander the Great. It was going to be a group of soldiers in the desert fighting. That was the concept, led by Alexander. And it didn't sell," the 86-year-old actor recalled. "Each of us went our way and we would see each other at a Comic Con like this. Be having lunch and sit at a table and talk and I got to know him over the years and I really admired him. Lovely, lovely, sophisticated man."

Co-starring Burt Ward and Julie Newmar, Batman vs. Two-Face will be released on DVD and Blu-ray on Oct. 17.

Kirkman teases 'huge event' in the world of 'The Walking Dead'
The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman says fans can expect to see the first character crossover between that show and its spinoff Fear the Walking Dead some time in the near future.

"There are two Walking Dead shows. I'm not going to name them, but there are two. There is one character that is going to go from one show that I will not name and appear in the other show, which I will not name," Kirkman told the crowd at New York Comic Con Saturday night.

"What does that mean?" he teased. "Because these timelines, like, how does that work? Are we going to see an interesting back story of a Walking Dead character, showing up on Fear the Walking Dead? ... Or are we going to see a Fear the Walking Dead character show up on Walking Dead and see a future version of a character? What could happen? Is it going to be completely different than that. ... This is a huge event in the world of The Walking Dead. We are very excited about this and there is going to more news on this front in the coming months, so please stay tuned to what they call the Internet or the papers and you will find out more about this stuff, but it's going to be huge. We are all very excited." .

Season 3 of Fear the Walking Dead -- which is set in California and Mexico shortly after a zombie apocalypse -- is airing now on AMC. Season 8 of The Walking Dead -- which takes place in the American Southeast several years after civilization began to crumble -- kicks off on Oct. 22.
