Tonight on channel 4, KTVX, in Salt Lake City, Salt Lake Comic Con organizer Dan Farr brought the city up to speed on the latest and greatest developments concerning the upcoming Salt Lake Comic Con, as part of a special event called “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to Salt Lake Comic Con.”
ONLY 24 DAYS AWAY!
The history of Salt Lake Comic Con, from its inception in the minds (and wallets) of Dan Farr and Bryan Brandenburg, through its development through word-of-mouth amongst celebrities of all stripes, from voice actors to illustrators to A-list celebs, including Patrick Stewart, William Shatner, and the Godfather himself: Stan Lee.
It even touched on the ongoing difficulties with Comic-Con International
Recapping already announced guests such as Ian Somerhalder, Felicia Day, James and Oliver Phelps, Sean Astin, Anthony Daniels, Morena Baccarin, Scott Wilson, Robbie Amell, Walter Koenig….
There’s more, a LOT more, but so far the feather in the event’s cap is Captain America himself: Chris Evans.
But the big news is the newly announced guest, billed as a MARVEL-ous guest, one could only assume that it is the long-known but not confirmed Agent Peggy Carter, Hayley Atwell, or Tony Stark himself, Robert Downey, Jr.
Remember this, from just a couple days ago?
Either one, of course, would be a major catch, and will only add to the growing reputation that Salt Lake Comic Con is building.
And so, without further ado, the big announcement is…..
Out of left field, Dan Farr pulls a head-fake and nails a HUGE celeb!
OUT-STANDING! An excellent addition, sure to drive the fans crazy!
