Wizard World Cleveland To Celebrate 20th Anniversary Of ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’

Brendon To Attend March 17-19, Carpenter On Saturday and Sunday, March 18-19, At Huntington Convention Center Of Cleveland

It was 20 years ago (today!) that the cult TV hit “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” first hit the air. Its fandom has grown ever since, and Wizard World is proud to commemorate the occasion by adding two of its most popular and memorable stars, Nicholas Brendon (“Xander Harris”) and Charisma Carpenter (“Cordelia Chase”) to Wizard World Comic Con Cleveland next weekend at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland.

Brendon will appear Friday through Sunday, March 17-19, while Carpenter will attend on Saturday and Sunday. Both will greet fans, sign autographs, pose for dual and solo photo ops and conduct an interactive Q&A panel on Saturday at 3 p.m. on the main stage.

One of the landmark series' most popular personalities, Brendon appeared in films like Psycho Beach Party and Demon Island during hiatuses in the show's run, then had recurring roles in the hit dramas "Criminal Minds" and "Private Practice."

Carpenter, who has more than 50 film and TV credits, reprised "Cordelia" on "Angel" and was a regular on "Veronica Mars" and "The Lying Game." She also played "Lacy" in the blockbuster film The Expendables and its sequel.

They join an All-Star roster that already includes Gene Simmons (Lead Singer, KISS, "Gene Simmons Family Jewels"), Millie Bobby Brown ("Stranger Things"), Anthony Mackie (Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Avengers: Age of Ultron), Jennifer Carpenter ("Dexter," "The Exorcism of Emily Rose") and Loren Lester and Kevin Conroy of "Batman: The Animated Series."

Wizard World Comic Con events bring together thousands of fans of all ages to celebrate the best in pop culture: movies, television, gaming, live entertainment, comics, sci-fi, graphic novels, toys, original art, collectibles, contests and more. The third event scheduled on the 2017 Wizard World calendar, Cleveland show hours are Friday, March 17, 5-10 p.m.; Saturday, March 18, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sunday, March 19, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Featurette “Legacy”

Watch the new “Legacy” featurette, as Kevin Feige joins other filmmakers and the cast of Marvel Studios’ AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR to chronicle the growth and success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe from its auspicious beginning with “Iron Man” in 2008 to the upcoming tour de force “AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR.”

An unprecedented cinematic journey ten years in the making and spanning the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, Marvel Studios’ “Avengers: Infinity War” brings to the screen the ultimate, deadliest showdown of all time. The Avengers and their Super Hero allies must be willing to sacrifice all in an attempt to defeat the powerful Thanos before his blitz of devastation and ruin puts an end to the universe.



Anthony and Joe Russo direct the film, which is produced by Kevin Feige. Louis D’Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo, Trinh Tran, Jon Favreau, James Gunn and Stan Lee are the executive producers. Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely wrote the screenplay. “Avengers: Infinity…

David Leitch Directing Hobbs & Shaw Spin-Off

As Universal guns the engine on the first planned spin-off from the Fast & Furious franchise, the studio has pinpointed the person it wants to wrangle Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham for the film. John Wick and Atomic Blonde director David Leitch is directing the film.

It makes sense that a film featuring the two would demand a director who has proven they can bring action scenes to life, and Leitch – who moved from stunt co-ordination and second unit work to co-direct the first Wick with Chad Stahelski – has certainly shown he's got the flair for it.

Chris Morgan has written the script for the new film, which doesn't yet have a name, but should boast Johnson's Luke Hobbs and Statham's recently redeemed Deckard Shaw on their own mission, minus any candy asses. Universal wants this one in cinemas for July next year, and so it needs the wheels to hit the road quickly.

Leitch's most recent job was directing Deadpool 2, which opens in the UK on 16 May and has jus…
