As you remember earlier today Wizard World made an announcement about teaming up with ASUS. Now more news is coming your way! Later this month, people can meet Chris Hemsworth in person as he headlines Wizard World Cleveland on Saturday, February 27, at the FirstMerit Convention Center of Cleveland. Hemsworth will sign autographs, pose for photo ops and conduct a Q&A panel, as announced today by Wizard World, Inc. (OTCBB: WIZD), a leading producer of comic con, gaming and pop culture events.
One of Hollywood’s fastest-risers, Hemsworth 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.
“We are extremely excited to be adding a Hollywood heavyweight like Chris Hemsworth to what was already shaping up as a massive second-year show in Cleveland,” said John Macaluso , Wizard World President and CEO. “He is one of our most requested guests, and is the kind of superstar celebrity fans have come to expect to meet at our events.”
This will mark Hemsworth’s third Wizard World appearance. He was a huge hit in Sacramento in 2015 and in Philadelphia in 2012, and this year joins an already star-studded celebrity roster in Cleveland, as the “Doctor Who” duo of Matt Smith and Karen Gillan, “The Walking Dead” tandem of Chandler Riggs and Michael Rooker , Robert Englund ( A Nightmare on Elm Street) and Frank Grillo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) are the early commitments to one of Wizard World’s most popular comic con events.
