Los Angeles Comic Con is coming back to the Los Angeles Convention Center for it’s 8th annual comic convention from Friday October 26 – Sunday October 28th. The Marvel Report is here to wrap up all of the Marvel happenings at the convention for you. While the full schedule is not yet set in stone, we will update this article as more information becomes available.
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or should we say Agents of Hydra, is bringing actors Brett Dalton (Grant Ward) and Mallory Jansen (AIDA) to the Main Stage on Saturday for a panel. Per the LACC Facebook page, Dalton will be available for photos and autographs. We are hoping that Jansen will be added as well.
Marvel’s Runaways is bringing actors Lyrica Okanao, Ariela Barer, Annie Wersching, Bridget Brannagh, Brittany Ishibash and Angel Parker to the Main Stage on Saturday for a panel as well. The LACC website also says that they will be available for photos and autographs.
Cosplay is always aplenty at Los Angeles Comic Con. If you plan on cosplaying at the con, you can check the weapons/prop policy here: LACC Weapons Policy. The policy looks to be updated from years past, and includes what IS allowed as well as what isn’t. We are a fan of policies like this which spell things out much more clearly.
The official Marvel group cosplay photo meetup will again be hosted by The Avengers Initiative and led by photographer Ron Z Photography. Click here for the event page, if you would like to attend: 2018 LACC Marvel Cosplay Meetup. The meetup will be on Saturday, at 4pm. Check the event page for more details.
