Look, up in the sky! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s the big time celebrities set to fly in to Dubai for its massive pop culture extravaganza.
This year’s hugely-anticipated Middle East Film and Comic Con (MEFCC) has revealed its stellar list of stars coming to Dubai, and includes Superman, Elektra from Daredevil, Gimli and Aladdin himself.
With the event kicking off from Thursday March 5, fans of comic books, TV and films will get the chance to see Brandon Routh, star of 2006’s Superman Returns, along with star of Disney’s recent live action adaptation of Aladdin, Mena Mas-soud.
That’s not all, as fans of Middle Earth will see their favourite body-counting dwarf warrior Gimli, as John Rhys-Davies is set to arrive, too.
Finally, from the hit Netflix series Daredevil and The Defenders, French actress Élodie Yung who plays Elektra will be there to meet and greet fans.
MEFCC 2020 has also recently announced the international comic book artists and famed cosplayers hosting workshops and more throughout the weekend. Check them out here.
