Bender is a king and Leela is a centaur in the highly anticipated third Futurama DVD, Bender's Game coming to Blu-Ray on November 4th. The Futurama Comic-Con panel assembled the voice talent from all your favorite characters, from Bender to Calculon. Click through for more details on Dr. Zoidberg's love life, what cartoon guests will be joining the Planet Express team, and a few panel pictures.

Creators Matt Groening and David X. Cohen gathered Katey Sagal (Leela), Billy West (Fry, Professor Farnsworth, Dr. Zoidberg), John DiMaggio (Bender), and Maurice LaMarche (Kif, Calculon) together for a Futurama reunion. The whole gang hammed it up to the delight of the crowd, answering character questions with the characters' voices (if I sounded like Bender, I would only talk that way as well). The panel also played a few made special clips for the occasion, that poked fun at Fox for canceling the series.

The panel also revealed that in the upcoming DVD, Dr. Zoidberg falls in love with a sandwich. Magician Penn Jillette, Star Trek actor George Takei and sportscaster Howard Cosell will join the cast, there will be more members of the Waterfall family and Snoop Dogg will be the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court.

Will Futurama be returning as a series? "We'll see," Groening, said. "We certainly want to do more Futurama movies... anything we can do: stories, movies. We haven't done all the stories. We still have a few secrets left."

But most importantly Producer David Cohen hinted that our star crossed cartoon characters Leela and Fry may finally get yet another chance at love in a future DVD. Though thats all he would reveal Katey Sagal promised that there would be some kissing, before laying one on Billy West.
