On the heels of yesterday’s HUGE news that Star Wars’ own Mark Hamill will
be attending the upcoming Salt Lake Comic Con on September 1st, organizers
Bryan Brandenburg and Dan Farr have unleashed yet another crowd-pleasing and fan-base frenzying announcement with the addition of an incredible guest
from the X-Men film universe:
The Phoenix* herself will be flying into Salt Lake on Saturday, September 3rd. The Salt Lake City fans have been clamoring for organizers to try to get Famke for the con for almost as long as Salt Lake Comic Con has existed, and now-finally!-they will have their wish fulfilled.
Famke Janssen will be representing the Fox side of the Marvel universe here
in Salt Lake in just a few weeks’ time.
And let’s not forget that she wasn’t a Bond girl, she was a Bond villain,
which is infinitely cooler.
It should go without saying that this is a get that couldn’t have possibly
been easy, by any stretch of the imagination, but they did it.
Well, done, Bryan and Dan.
*Don’t forget that Jean Grey’s almost-never-used and mostly forgotten
“X-Men” name was Marvel Girl.
