Fans Line Up to See Their Favorite Stars at Wizard World Cleveland

Wizard World Comic Con is in Cleveland this weekend and fans are lined up and excited to meet, take pictures with, and get autographs from their favorite stars.  There are a number of guests representing DC here in television and film including Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher of Justice League, John Barrowman from Arrow, Matt Ryan from Constantine, David Mazouz and Sean Pertwee from Gotham, and Michael Rosenbaum from Smallville.  Each of them have their own events scheduled with fans including photo-ops and autograph sessions.

Some fans came hundreds of miles for this weekend at Comic Con such as Sam Gano, who arrived all the way from Denver to Ezra Miller.  Wizard World Comic Con will probably stop in Denver as well, but according to Gano, “ I love Ezra Miller, and he is really popular right now.  I did my research on what Comic Cons he’s rumored to appear at and Cleveland’s the only one in the near future.  I’m definitely not going to miss a picture with the man I think could be the future of the DCEU.”  Gano is not alone, however, as lines begin to wrap around the showroom floor.

In additions in autographs and pictures, many of the DC Stars will be doing their own panels that I’ll be covering this weekend.  In addition to more informal events like a Marvel vs DC discussion (we know who’s better), Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher will be on a panel talking about Justice League and what’s coming next, John Barrowman is hosting his “one man show” in addition to talking about his role of Malcolm Merlyn in the Arrowverse.  Matt Ryan is hosting a panel about playing one of the few DC characters current portrayed in DC media that make use of dark magic.  Finally, David Mazouz and Sean Pertwee are hosting a panel about protecting Gotham, and what it is like playing Alfred and young Bruce.   I’ll be here all weekend covering these panels and more, and I am very excited for what’s in store.

Wizard World Comic Con Cleveland is located at the Huntington Convention Center on 300 Lakeside Avenue E Cleveland, OH and takes place on Friday, March 2nd from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm, Saturday March 3rd from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm, and Sunday March 4th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
