Doctor Strange’s Benedict Wong, the Arrowverse’s Caity Lotz, and Superman Returns’ Brandon Routh have all been added to the star-studded lineup for the upcoming Fan Expo Vancouver.
Taking place from Friday to Sunday (October 12 to 14) at the Vancouver Convention Centre’s West Building (1055 Canada Place), the three-day pop-culture extravaganza will welcome Wong, who also appears in Avengers: Infinity War and the upcoming Avengers 4, on Saturday and Sunday.
Lotz, who is best known as Sara Lance/White Canary on The CW’s Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, and Supergirl, and Routh, who also portrays Ray Palmer/Atom on Legends of Tomorrow, will take to the event stage on Saturday.
Juno Award–winning artist Lights and voice actor Steve Blum, who can be heard on video games such as God of War and Call of Duty, will also appear at this year’s Fan Expo Vancouver. They join a long list of previously announced names that includes Aquaman’s Jason Momoa, Hellboy’s Ron Perlman, Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Wil Wheaton, and The Guild’s Felicia Day.
In addition, an Artist Alley at the conference will welcome some of the comic industry’s brightest talents, such as artists Bob McLeod and Matt “Batt” Banning. However, John Barrowman, Ray Park, and Pom Klementieff—all of whom were initially set to attend—have canceled their appearances.
Organized by entertainment-convention group Fan Expo HQ, Fan Expo Vancouver is an all-ages event that allows fans to meet and pose for photo ops with their favourite stars from the realms of comics, sci-fi, horror, anime, cosplay, and gaming. In addition to a high-wattage guest lineup, the show features a slew of industry panels, family-friendly activities, and a cosplay contest.
More than 30,000 people are expected to attend. Full schedules and tickets, which start at $30 each, are available online and through the Fan Expo Vancouver app.
