A press release from Starz provides some detail of the NYCC panel.
The creator and cast of "Da Vinci's Demons," the highly-anticipated STARZ Original series premiering Spring 2013, came together for the first time today at New York Comic Con. Creator David S. Goyer and cast members Tom Riley, Laura Haddock and Lara Pulver took the stage in front of a packed house at the Javits Center to take part in a panel discussion moderated by Entertainment Weekly's Geoff Boucher.
Attendees were treated to a sneak peek of the drama series, as well as a glimpse behind the scenes courtesy of the cast and creator. During the panel, creator David S. Goyer introduced the series to a roaring crowd calling his Da Vinci a "Tony Stark prototype," to which Tom Riley-- who portrays the titular character-- agreed, "Mixed with a bit of Sherlock Holmes and Indiana Jones."
They spoke about the research into the life of Da Vinci, the gaps and the creative ways the series imagines them filled, and the ladies detailed their love of the costumes, with Laura declaring that Emmy(R) Award winning costume designer Annie Symons "takes a box, jumps out of it, then runs a mile." The panel ended with a second viewing of the trailer, which only contributed to the fans growing intrigue.
