TooFab caught up with the cast of "The Walking Dead" at a press conference on Thursday, following the show's big Hall H panel -- which you can read a recap of right here. During the presser, Reedus explained why it was a little different returning to the fan convention with out Lincoln, who left the show -- but will return for at least one movie -- last year.
"I spoke to Andrew Lincoln yesterday and said it's weird you're not here at Comic-Con," said Reedus, "because I don't know where to send my room service charges." The actor claimed he would put "thousands of dollars" on Rick Grimes' bill, every year.
The two also talked about how their characters of Daryl and Negan have continued to evolve as the seasons go on. When asked what Norman was still surprised to learn about himself, he joked, "I can take six Advil at once!"
"This show's definitely beaten me up, for sure," he said, before adding that he loves to see Daryl interact with new characters. "The people around you, as you grow as a character, they grow too."
We can expect some growing with Negan as well, who was seen getting out of his jail cell in the trailer for Season 10. Saying that Judith has helped bring out a different side of him, Morgan added that "Negan will always be Negan."
"He will always have a sharp tongue. He may not be bashing you in the had with Lucille," but uses his words instead, he added. "I think Negan has changed little bit. People want to say redemption arc, I don't think it's a redemption arc. He's always been who he is. We'll see. I think he’s going to be battling a bunch of things within himself this season."

'The Walking Dead' Season 10 Trailer: Michonne Weilds Lucille, Kisses Ezekiel!
The very much alive stars of "The Walking Dead" shuffled into Hall H at Comic-Con on Friday afternoon with a big treat for fans: the first trailer for Season 10. Thankfully, AMC then dropped the footage online for everyone who didn't make the trek down to San Diego for the weekend.
Picking up a few months after the events of Season 9 -- which ended with a wintry blizzard and a radio correspondence from places unknown -- it looks like it's back to business as usual for our survivors, as they continue to butt heads with Alpha and the rest of the Whisperers.
Joining the show this season are "American Beauty" star Thora Birch as Gamma -- one of Beta's followers -- and Kevin Carroll as a man "desperately trying to get back to his home and family."

Among the noteworthy shots: Negan of his jail cell and possibly fighting alongside the other survivors, Eugene running to his radio, graffiti reading "Silence the Whisperers," Aaron sporting a dangerous new accessory, a huge sequence on a beach with the entire cast and Michonne both kissing Ezekiel and getting her hands on Lucille.
Speaking during the Comic-Con presentation, Norman Reedus said there will be "a whole lot of people losing their shit" in Season 10, thanks to newfound "paranoia" among the survivors.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan said to expect Negan to "stretch his legs" a bit more, as he's finally allowed out of his cell. "We'll see what happens if he gets a weapon in his hands," he added, promising "he won't hurt Judith."
And speaking of Judith, little Cailey Flemming was asked which other weapons she'd love to get her hands on. "I think it would be cool to have Daryl's crossbow ... or Lucille," she said to cheers, "They're both awesome."
Speaking about having some more time with Jeffrey Dean Morgan going forward, Reedus noted, "I work with all the girls all the time, sometimes if someone's gossiping, they don't tell me what they're talking about." Dean doesn't do that.
Ryan Hurst, aka Beta, said to expect to see the Whisperers "coming in full force" when the show returns, while Season 9 additions Eleanor Matsua and Nadia Hilker said their characters will be more incorporated in the group.
Hilker also revealed that while filming her first season on the show, she pronounced Danai's wrong incorrectly to her face the entire time -- until Gurira finally (and very nicely) corrected her when they had wrapped.
After he surprisingly ended the comics this month, series creator Robert Kirmkan promised the show is "about the world" at large and not just Rick and Carl Grimes. He promised to anyone thinking the show might "somehow spontaneously end" in Season 10 that "that is not going to happen."
Greg Nicotero also teased that "the opening 3 minutes" of the season premiere "is unlike anything we've ever done" -- and might leave you wondering what show you're watching.
"A little time has passed. They've been living with some of the Whisperers' rules, and we'll see that some things have changed and some people have done some unexpected things in the time that has passed to deal with the trauma at the end of last season," show runner Angela Kang recently told Entertainment Weekly.
She also teased a "Cold War feel" to tensions between the two factions, as conflict keeps building.
Of Alpha, Beta and her followers, Kang said to expect more backstories to come and "more insight into some more characters within that group." She added, "They've got their own problems, too, within their group, so there will be some interesting back-and-forth between our two groups as they deal with this conflict at the border."
"The Walking Dead" Season 10 premieres on AMC in October 6.
Gurira -- who made her first true appearance on the show as fan favorite Michonne in Season 3, after a brief tease in the Season 2 finale -- confirmed the news herself during the show's panel on Friday afternoon.
"I can confirm that this is the last season I will be on this amazing TV show as Michonne," she said near the end of the panel.
"I would just like to say that this has been one of the purest joys of my life to play this role and to be amongst these people and those that are not here right now," said Gurira, getting emotional. "I am very very thankful for the experience I've had in ways I can't even express right now. My heart does not leave in any way shape or form. The TWD family is forever. It doesn't ever end."
She went on to call it a "difficult decision," but added there are other opportunities she wants to explore. Gurira said she's leaving with "a lot of pain about leaving and a lot of gratitude"
Gurira got a huge standing ovation from the crowd after making the announcement.
It was previously reported the "Black Panther" actress would only appear in a "handful" of episodes and was expected to star in the three planned spinoff films with Lincoln's Rick Grimes -- who also left the show, but wasn't killed off.
"We've put her through her paces this year. She brought the A++ game as she always does. I'm excited to share the things she's doing," added showrunner Angela Kang. "I'm excited for people to just see the depth and beauty of her work as always. We will miss the hell out of her."
Comic book spoilers to follow.
In the source material, Michonne was one of the characters who lived through the very last issue, which dropped on July. The character moved to the Commonwealth, a developed city which has yet to appear on the show, where she became a judge.

"There aren't a lot of people that look like you in Europe, there just aren't a lot of black people most places. You're in a sea of whiteness," he continued. "Especially if you get into an altercation or something happens, you're going to be the first to get singled out."
Vic has been to Sweden and never had trouble there, but revealed he did have a run in with German police.
"They was on me in Munich. They was following me all through the train station," he said. "I was just looking for a Belgian waffle. I had dreads and tats though, so they was up on me, sticking their hands in my pockets, searching the shit out of us for no reason."
A$AP — whose real name is Rakim Mayers — was arrested in Stockholm on July 3, one day after headlining a hip hop festival there, on "probable grounds for serious assault" after allegedly being involved in a street brawl.
Videos circulating online show the altercation, but also appear to show Rocky's entourage asking the men to stop following them shortly beforehand.
He was denied bail after being deemed a flight risk. He could face up to six years in prison if found guilty of assault.
Mensa concluded: "A$AP is a strong dude. You gotta hold your head. We praying for you, thinking about you out here, we know you're gonna be Gucci. Asap is a good dude above all, he ain't even on that drama, that's not even him."
The ordeal has even reached the White House, with President Trump vowing to get involved.
"Just spoke to @KanyeWest about his friend A$AP Rocky’s incarceration," the POTUS tweeted on Friday. "I will be calling the very talented Prime Minister of Sweden to see what we can do about helping A$AP Rocky. So many people would like to see this quickly resolved!"

Fans weren't the only ones who were surprised by that post-credits twist involving Maria Hill and Nick Fury.
In case you missed it and don't mind being spoiled, the final scene of the movie revealed the two agents were not who they appeared to be. Instead, they were actually shape-shifting Skrulls Talos (Ben Mendelsohn) and his wife, Soren (Sharon Blynn) from "Captain Marvel." It's not known exactly how long they have been taking the place of the agents, but does explain how the two were so easily tricked by Mysterio throughout the film.
"I learned about it maybe a couple weeks before it happened," said the actress. "It was a very last minute addition and I loved it. I love the twist of it. I wonder what Maria's doing right now. I'm sure she's gettin the job done somewhere."
When we noted maybe she's in space with Fury, Smulders added: "She's in space, who knows. But it was a fun one, it was a fun reveal."
The Marvel star was at Comic-Con to promote her upcoming ABC series "Stumptown," an adaptation of a graphic novel which finds her playing an army veteran turned private eye in Portland. In the trailer for the show, she's seen kicking some serious ass, especially during a fight scene which takes place inside a car.

"The scene in the back of the car was one of the more challenging ones and I thought it was going to be a piece of cake because you're sitting, right?" said Smulders, who had just shown off her muscles. "You're like, I'm not fighting, I'm not kicking. But that was the most challenging because you're in a weird position to be trying to angle up anything. So that was really the most difficult ones."
As for how she trained, she said there were "a lot of drills" on punching, hitting, kicking and generally just staying in shape. Though she has the muscles to show for it now, she also joked, "I want a burger so bad!"
Her character, Dex Parios, might just be able to give Maria Hill a run for her money too. When asked who would win in a fight, she thought Dex might just have the upper hand. "She's just a scrapper," said Smulders, who concluded that it may just end in a draw.
"Spider-Man: Far From Home" is out now. "Stumptown" premieres September 25 on ABC.
The men behind the latest Avengers movies assembled in Hall H at Comic-Con on Friday morning to talk all things Marvel ... and, yes, whether Chris Evans really owns the title of America's ass.
Joe and Anthony Russo, aka The Russo Brothers, were the guests of honor at a panel hosted by Collider's Steven Weintraub. The Russos first came onboard with Marvel for "Captain America: Winter Soldier," before directing "Captain America: Civil War," "Avengers: Endgame" and "Avengers: Infinity War."
And while we all love those four movies, the first question for the two was what MCU project would they tackle next and if it could possibly be "Secret Wars." "Twist my arm," said Joe, who called the comic series one of his favorites as a kid. Anthony then called their Marvel years "among the best creative times we've ever had" and said he would love to work with them again. While they may be done for now, their next project does reunite them with one of Earth's Mightiest Heroes: Tom Holland, who will star in "Cherry."
During a speed round of questions, Joe revealed that when it came to which Avenger ruined the most takes on set, it was a "very close race" between Anthony Mackie and Mark Ruffalo. "Ruffalo does it because he gets lost in the performance," noted Anthony, "Mackie does it because he gets lost outside of the moment." Scarlett Johnansson, however, nails everything in one take.
The two said that creating the dusting in "Infinity War" was the hardest visual effect to complete in "Infinity War," while the major "Avengers, assemble" moment at the end of "Endgame" -- as pictured above -- was the most difficult in that one. They also said they'd love to relive Robert Downey Jr.'s last day on set, which was made all the more meaningful due to the fact it was filmed right next door to where RDJ filmed his screen test for the first "Iron Man" movie.
After that, a few familiar faces asked the directors questions via pre-recorded videos. The first was from Mark Ruffalo. His Q: "I wanna know, since Hulk and Banner have finally comes to terms with each other, does that make Hulk, the new Hulk, the smartest and the strongest?" Unfortunately for Mark, Joe noted that Tony was the one who solved time travel, while Anthony noted his daughter would disagree as well -- and name Shuri instead.
Chris Evans then asked what the two thought the first thing Steve Rogers would do after his dance with Peggy. "Perhaps he and Peggy tried to make a baby?" said Anthony. Joe, meanwhile, joked, "I think he went to the bathroom, it took him a long time to return all those stones. He was holding it for a while."
More seriously, Anthony added, "He could do a lot of things, he could go rescue Bucky from Hydra. He could route Hyrda out of S.H.I.E.L.D., he could find himself in the ice and figure out a rotation where the two Steves could take turns and he could spend more time with Peggy."
A "slimmer version" of Chris Hemsworth also sent in a message, which was more of a declaration that Thor would make a better leader of "Guardians of the Galaxy" going forward, before Paul Rudd asked the funniest question of them all involving the battle of the Chrises.
"Who is the sexiest Chris, who's the best Chris in the Marvel universe? I don’t care about the best Chris, I care a little bit about the best Paul. I’m guessing #2 is Bettany," he said. "If you had to rank Best America’s Ass, which Chris would it be? Or Paul. You choose."
The two refused to answer the question, instead posing it to all of Hall H. Naming all three Chrises and judging by the audience screams, it was VERY clear that Evans was the winner -- by far -- with Hemsworth coming in second and Pratt a distant third.
The final fan Q came from RDJ himself, who wanted to know what they saw as the "biggest single difference" between Tony's "I Am Iron Man" proclamation in the first movie and his goodbye in "Endgame."
"I think a really important point that arc is, at the end Tony had become a father," said Anthony. "Speaking as a father, there’s something that happens to you where you are suddenly aware your job in the universe is to truly serve others in a way that reaches to the core of your being. He was in a different place there."
During a NSFW appearance on Tan France's show, "Dressing Funny," the "Saturday Night Live" star got more than candid about his mom-turned-roommate's sex life, saying she "hasn't been with anybody" since his dad -- who served as a New York City firefighter -- died in the line of duty on September 11, 2001.
"Does your mom date?" the "Queer Eye" star asked the comedian on Thursday's episode of the Netflix series.
"I'm trying to get her to," Pete replied, munching on a fat burger.
"How do you feel when your mom dates?" Tan asked.
"I don't care. She needs to -- someone should slam her," Pete replied matter-of-factly, eliciting a gasp from Tan. Taking another massive bite of his burger, he added, "Seriously! She's been like not with anybody since like my dad died. Someone needs to get up in there and get that lady off my back."

France was dying. "She might see this, Pete!" he warned.
"I don't care," Davidson fired back, mouth full of food. "I mean, at this point, I might f--k her!"
After Tan collected himself, he asked the comedian if he'd speak up if his mom were to bring home a guy he didn't like.
"Yeah," he said. "I'd be like, 'Hey, that guy's not cool, but like, get it in.' You know what I mean?"
Judging from Tan's face, he did not know what Pete meant.
In April, Davidson revealed to Jimmy Fallon he had moved in with his mom in October of 2018 following his split from then-fiancée Ariana Grande.
Security footage from a nearby gas station shows the man filling up buckets with gasoline beforehand.
Witnesses told police he shouted "die!" as he set the fire; when he was questioned on the scene he reportedly claimed "they ripped me off" and "they stole my ideas", and was shouting about plagiarism.
"They are always stealing. It's their fault," one Japanese paper quoted a witness hearing, and that he claimed the studio had stolen his novel.
When he was apprehended, he was carrying a backpack with a hammer and knives. He has yet to be formally questioned, as police are waiting for him to recover from the injuries he sustained from the fire himself.
Local media claim he suffers from mental health issues, and that he served a three-and-a-half year prison sentence in 2012 for robbing a convenience store with a knife for $200.
It was also revealed he never worked for the studio.
Many of the victims were found dead on a collapsed stairwell, where investigators believe they had been trying to escape to the roof.
Most of the victims were women, as the studio was renowned for its strong record of hiring female staff.
Founded in 1981, Kyoto Animation — or KyoAni for short — is one of Japan's most beloved studios, producing animated films and shows, as well as novels and comics.
Among it's most famous works are the "K-On!" manga series, and "Violet Evergarden" which Netflix picked up last year..
Kyoto Animation president Hideaki Hatta revealed the company had received threats through the mail previously, which were passed to police.
"I am deeply heartbroken. I can't bear it. I never even in my dreams would have thought such a large disaster would happen," he said. "This is a serious blow to our company and our industry. Every one of them was an excellent and wonderful colleague."
As well as the 33 killed and 36 injured, he revealed that all of the company's past animation materials and computers housed there had been destroyed.
