Last year’s Comic Con had an incredible turnout of over 20,000 visitors and if this year’s line-up is any indication, we’ll see even more! Now a 3 day even, Comic Con will be running from June 6 – 8 at the Scotiabank Convention Centre in Niagara Falls.
Best known for his portrayal of Captain James T. Kirk, June 8th will see the legendary William Shatner available for autographs, photo ops and a, sure to be exciting, Q&A session. Shatner also had an amazing role as Denny Crane on the show Boston Legal, where he won 2 Golden Globe awards.
For those of you familiar with the fantastic show Power Rangers, the original Green Ranger will be making an appearance from June 6 – 8. Frank also played different Rangers over the years including White, Red Zeo, Red Turbo, and Black Dino Thunder Ranger. He was in more episodes than any other character, 225 total, and was also in both full-length movies.
The ever-popular show Breaking Bad will be making a show at Comic Con with Giancarlo Esposito, better known as the drug lord Gustavo Fring. Esposito won the Best Supporting Actor in a Drama and the 2012 Critic’s Choice Television Award. He is also known for his roles in Do the Right Thing, The Usual Suspects and King of New York.
To show off the best dressed cosplay enthusiasts, Comic Con will be hosting an exciting Cosplay Competition. The competition is a celebration between costume makers to determine the highest quality, most artistic and best crafted costumes. Kristen Hughey, one of the biggest stars in cosplay, will be the host for this event. This is definitely something you will not want to miss.
