Geeky guys and gals rejoice, the region’s biggest annual pop-culture fest that is the Middle East Film & Comic Con is set to return this April.

Now in its seventh year, the MEFCC is once again bringing some huge guests to our shores this year. Fans will get the chance to shake hands with none-other than Karen Gillan, the fearsome Nebula from the popular Guardians of the Galaxy films and the upcoming Avengers: Infinity War. 

She’ll be joined by fellow Marvel staple, Karl Urban who, aside from his charismatic role as Skurge in last year’s excellent Thor: Ragnarok, has a host of top geek credentials including playing Doctor ‘Bones’ McCoy in the recent Star Trek trilogy, and the titular badass in 2012 Dredd reboot.

Other guests include legendary comic book artist Adam Kubert, who has worked on everything from Action Comics to the X-Men, as well as actor Jason David Frank best known for his role as the original green Power Ranger.

The Middle East Film & Comic Con will take place between 5-7 April 2017 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. Click here  for ticket info.
