Montreal Comiccon is celebrating a remarkable 10-year milestone with this summer’s spectacular event. News of the 2018 Montreal Comiccon celebrity and guest appearance lineup has us looking forward to that summer heat!
Celebrating a decade of bringing fandom to the city, organizers have announced the lineup of guest stars coming to meet the legions of fans who will converge on the Palais de Congres July 6-8, 2018.
Time to get your Fan Girl/Boy on
He’s the only person to have won a staring contest with the sun, when he does push-ups he isn’t lifting himself up, he’s pushing the earth down, he’s none other than the legendary Chuck Norris! The Delta Force, Walker, Texas Ranger, and Internet meme star is coming to Montreal to meet fans just like you!
Headlining as Guests of Honour will be X-files stars David Ducovney and Gillian Anderson hot off of the finale of season 11 of the series reboot which left us wondering whether or not the show will continue with Anderson’s departure. While Anderson did make a solo appearance a few years ago, this will be the first time they’ve been in Montreal to greet fans and do photo ops together.
Actor Danny Trejo (Machete, Desperado) best known for playing bad-ass villans and with over 300 acting credits to his name – you can’t miss him.
Bringing some magic will be Jennifer Morrison (Once Upon a Time, House) who just wrapped on her last appearance as Emma Swan on Once Upon a Time.
Marvel movie fans will have a chance to see Pom Klementieff aka the adorable Mantis from the Guardians of the Galaxy movie franchise.
And what would Comiccon be without the comic book heros? Legendary comic writer Gerry Conway, creator of over 75 comic book characters and scripting hundreds of storylines, will have comic fans geeking out. He’s the Amazing Spider-man writer who had the guts to kill off Gwen Stacey but also bring Ms. Marvel to life. Don’t miss your chance to get your comics autographed by this incredible talent.
Comiccon 2018 Attractions and Events
Montreal Comiccon will be hosting hundreds of exhibitors and a multitude of activities including panels, workshops, performances, and even a sword training seminar.
Live music will also be a major attraction as it has been over the last few years. Our favourite geek music orchestra, the OVFM (More info: Montreal Orchestra) playing movie and game score favourites throughout the weekend (Star Wars night, Harry Potter night, and video game night).
Nerdstock, a nerdy rock band festival will be headlined by a Transformers themed hair metal band – Cybertronic Spree.
Convention goers will even get to see a Buffy the Vampire Slayer musical homage by House of M. They will be performing one of the most famous episodes of any fantasy TV show, Once More with Feeling.
The venue will be home again to a popular family zone with laser sword training and nerf battles that will appeal to everyone, not just kids!
Video game entertainment will certainly not be taking a backseat this year with an entire freeplay area (computer games), a Retro Gaming Area (old games), and an Indie Game Zone (new games) available to all.
