Between 6-8 April, thousands of pop culture aficionados will descend en masse upon the Dubai World Trade Centre to get their fill of a veritable cornucopia of nerdy delights.
The Middle East Film & Comic Con is back, and we’ve put together the ultimate vade mecum to help ensure you miss none of the action.
Over the next few days we’ll be giving you our recommendations of what to check out over the whole geektastic weekend.
The big-name draw this year is none other than Avengers star Anthony Mackie. As the Falcon, he is a key member of Marvel’s big-screen superhero team and is looking to make waves (and sign some autographs) here in the Middle East.
With roles in everything from Heroes and Lost to Star Wars and Star Trek under his belt, Greg Grunberg could easily lay claim to the title of ‘King of the Geeks’. Which makes him the perfect headlining guest for this year’s MEFCC.
This year fans will get a little taste of Westerns in the Middle East thanks to Game of Thrones star Liam Cunningham, best known for his role as Davos Seaworth in the epic HBO fantasy series.
Do you love The Walking Dead? Well at this year’s con you’ll get the chance to shake hands with none other than the actor behind the hit zombie apocalypse shot show’s Dr. Eugene Porter.
Check out the MEFCC website for a full list of guests, and don’t forget to visit the Stuff stand for some cool activations and giveaways. See you at the con!
