WonderCon’s 25th anniversary took place last weekend, April 1st-3rd at the Moscone Center in San Francisco. As an attendee for many years, I was shocked to see how crowded the show was for the duration of the show. With Marvel making their first appearance at the show, as well as mainstays such as DC Comics, Image, and Aspen, the show definitely had a strong comic vibe. However, more than most years, especially with some of the most anticipated comic adapted movies coming out this summer, Wondercon also emphasized their entertainment presence. With Green Lantern cast members Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively signing at the DC booth, to fan photo ops of Henry Cavill (newly cast as Superman in Zach Snyder’s next project), Luke Evans, and Isabel Lucas for the new Immortals movie, and Lily Collins, Paul Bettany and Cam Gigandet promoting Priest, along with a surprise appearance from Brandon Routh joining costar Sam Huntington for Dylan Dog, this WonderCon almost felt like a pre San Diego Comic Con show. While it was definitely awesome to see the stars promoting their films, I do hope that Wonder Con can still retain it’s own identity and not turn into a San Diego Comic Con part 2. And now, onto the photos!
And of course, what good is a con without Cosplay? Here’s some of the best ones I saw at the show:
