Captain Malcolm Reynolds himself, Nathan Fillion, is coming to Denver Comic Con. The news bombshell was dropped this morning and “Browncoats” cheered. The super popular actor has been a Whedon staple with his roles in “Firefly,” “Serenity,” “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog” and so many more. “Castle” fans love him for his role of Richard Castle for which he nabbed four People’s Choice Awards. The pop culture favorite will be joining the already incredible list of guests appearing at the Colorado Convention Center June 30 – July 2, 2017. According to Denver Comic Con director Christina Angel, "Nathan Fillion is easily our most-requested guest. I’m personally thrilled to be hosting him and I’m excited to give fans the experience so many have been asking for.”
Denver Comic Con attendees will be deciding which pieces of the collection to get autographed by Nathan Fillion. Will it be that piece of Captain Hammer happiness from the “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog,” or something shiny from the "Firefly" collection? The actor is such a favorite of so many TV shows and films such as Alan Tudyk's "Con Man," and Whedon's highly praised film "Much Ado About Nothing." He has been spotted on "Modern Family," "Santa Clarita Diet," "Monster University" and "Guardians of the Galaxy." Alongside Fillion will be other Buffy alum such as Felicia Day, James Marsters, Eliza Dushku, Juliet Landau and Clare Kramer. No doubt the 20th anniversary of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" will be well-represented at this year's sixth annual pop culture convention.
This year's convention guest list is stunning with guests like Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci, Billie Piper, Bonnie Wright, Weird Al Yankovic, Morena Baccarin, Ben McKenzie, Robin Lord Taylor, Finn Jones, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Khary Payton, Wallace Shawn and the pages of celebrities roll on. The three-day experience will be filled famous comic book creators and rows upon rows of talented authors and artists. The epic dealer's room known as Merchant Mesa is always a highlight, and there will be over 400 hours of incredible programming.
