Today Wizard World has announced the amazing Superhero line up for their upcoming convention in Philadelphia. Several cast members from the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be in attendance. “This will be the greatest collection of Marvel stars in one convention setting,” said John Macaluso, Wizard World CEO.
Chris Hemsworth & Tom Hiddleston, from the Thor franchise, and Chris Evans, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Hayley Atwell, Stanley Tucci, Dominic Cooper, and Frank Grillo from the Captain America/Agent Carter franchise will all be in attendance this June. This will be Tom Hiddleston’s only convention appearance of 2016.
Evans, who has emerged as one of Hollywood’s most in-demand actors for both big budget and independent features, can next be seen in Captain America: Civil War, the third installment of Marvel’s Captain America franchise. In each film, Evans, who attended his first Wizard World event in New Orleans in January, reprises his role as the famed Marvel Comics character, “Steve Rogers,” who transforms into Captain America after volunteering for a top-secret research project in hopes of defending America’s ideals. Both films grossed over $713 million each at box offices worldwide.
Hemsworth, a big hit at last weekend’s Wizard World Cleveland show, was first introduced to U.S. audiences in Star Trek in 2009. Three years later, Hemsworth also starred in Universal’s big revisionist fairy tale Snow White And The Huntsman opposite Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart and in the horror feature The Cabin in the Woods. As prolific as 2012 was for the Melbourne, Australia, native, 2015 was even bigger, with four feature films including The Avengers: Age of Ultron, In the Heart of the Sea, Vacation and Blackhat. He also will play the lead in the sequel The Huntsman Winter’s War and a key role in the reboot of Ghostbusters, both scheduled for release this year.
Philly Wizard World is going to be a blast!
