From Thursday, June 2 through Sunday, June 5, the annual Wizard World Comic Convention will once again touch down at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. With superheroes as popular as ever these days, you can be certain that hardcore, casual, and even newer fans will overflow the halls to buy unique toys and art, attend industry panels, and maybe, just maybe, get to meet some of the Hollywood icons who will be attending, like Michael J. Fox, Chris Hemsworth, or Captain America himself, Chris Evans. If you do plan to go, here here are five things you need to know for this year.
1. Three popular fandoms will be celebrated.
This year, Back to the Future Fans will be able to greet stars Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, and Lea Thompson. Additionally, X-Files fans will also be thrilled with the appearance of series star David Duchovny and supporting actors Mitch Pileggi and William B. Davis. But perhaps the most anticipated and celeb-heavy appearance will be by NINE members of the intricately-linked Marvel Cinematic Universe including Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Tom Hiddleston and Hayley Atwell.
