Dragon Con adds guests from Dark Matter, DC TV universe and others

New Dragon Con logoLast month Dragon Con picked up the pace on guest announcements, including some from shows/movies that are either on my “currently watching” or “need to watch/catch up” lists.

From the SyFy show Dark Matter, guest announcements include Anthony Lemke, Jodelle Ferland, Roger Cross, and Zoie Palmer; who are known on the show as “Three”, “Five”, “Six”, and “The Android”, respectively. The show follows a group of amnesiacs who try to piece together who they are and why there were in stasis on an abandoned spaceship. The show is set to premiere its second season on July 1.

From the DC TV universe, we have Carlos Valdes (Cisco, The Flash), Caity Lotz (Sara Lance/White Canary, Arrow and Legends of Tomorrow) and Ciara Renee (Kendra Saunders/Hawkgirl, Arrow, The Flash and Legends of Tomorrow).

Jack Gleeson, who is best known for portraying Joffrey Baratheon (the king we all loved to hate) on Game of Thrones, will be appearing at Dragon Con on Sunday only.

Karl Urban, known for a variety of shows and films in the fantasy genre, will return to Dragon Con. Urban was last here in 2014, and I have to say that his panel was one of the best ones I’ve attended in the 8 (eight!) years that I’ve been going to Dragon Con. Looking forward to seeing what he has to say now.

And last but certainly not least Jason Isaacs, most recently known for portraying Lucius Malfoy – another love-to-hate-him character in the Harry Potter world – has also been announced to appear at Dragon Con. I am hoping that he will not be the only wizard to appear this year.

Dragon Con is the largest multi-media, popular culture convention focusing on science fiction and fantasy, gaming, comics, literature, art, music, and film. Every Labor Day weekend, about 40,000 people crowd the streets and take over the hotels of downtown Atlanta to meet friends, celebrities, cosplay and totally geek out. This year’s event will take place September 2-5. Ticket information can be found on the official website.
