Wizard World Comic Con returns to Cleveland this weekend for 2019, and fans are excited and ready to visit booths, panels, and celebrities during this special weekend.
For the DC fans out there, this convention is sure to be a good one because it features a Smallville reunion with cast members Tom Welling, Laura Vandervoort, Michael Rosenbaum, Alaina Huffman, and John Glover, who was also in Batman: The Animated Series. The cast will be featured in a reunion panel that will look back on one of the pioneering examples of superhero adaptation on the small screen, and it’s sure to be a highlight for this year’s convention.
Other notable stars this year include Kevin Conroy (who will be starring in a program talking about his work as Batman on Batman: The Animated Series and Justice League), fan-favorite Matt Ryan from the shows Constantine and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and Aquaman himself Jason Momoa. These guests are sure to draw in some large DC crowds, so anyone planning on attending should get there early so they don’t miss a thing.
People at Wizard World Cleveland have primarily come for the spectacle of it all: the booths, cosplay, fandoms, art, and everything else that comes with such a large gathering of geeks in one place. However, some have set their sights on a more specific objective.
Juliette Friedman is an aspiring actress who came all the way from Nashville for a chance to learn from the best. “I know they’re all busy people,” she said, ” but they all seem to put something special into each of their characters, even the animated ones. I’d be really happy if Alaina [Huffman] or Matt [Ryan] could just give me a few pointers. Of course, I’d still be excited with just a picture.”
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 9th from 4:00 pm to 9:00 pm, Saturday March 10th from 10:00 am to 7:00 pm, and Sunday March 11th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
