In a perfect world, Kristen Bell would be at Comic-Con

promoting a Veronica Mars feature film. Instead, she’s

here on behalf of Astro Boy, the forthcoming computer-animated 3-D flick based

on the Japanese phenomenon in which she voices the role of Cora. (Freddie

Highmore, who’s making the PR rounds with Bell, voices the title role.) But

have no fear. I managed to get in a couple questions about Mars. And Gossip

Girl. And… well, see for yourself after the jump.
