This "Ready Player One" and "X-Men" Actor is Coming to AsiaPOP Comicon 2018


In just less than a month, this year's AsiaPOP Comicon 2018, will once again kick off at SMX Convention Center in Pasay City on July 27 - 29. Everyone who is going to attend this biggest pop culture convention in the Philippines is definitely getting more and more excited as we draw closer to the said dates. And speaking of excitement, APCC PH just made another exciting announcement earlier today on their official Facebook page - Tye Sheridan is coming to the AsiaPOP Comicon!

In case you don't know who Tye Sheridan is, he is the main protagonist in Steven Spielberg's VR-centric and popular culture-loaded Ready Player One movie as Gunter Wade Watts (aka Parzival in the in-movie Oasis world). He also played as Scott Summers aka Cyclops in the recent X-Men: Apocalype movie together with Sophie Turner as Jean Grey. Both Tye and Sophie will be reprising their roles in the upcoming X-Men: Dark Phoenix set to be released next year.

This Tye Sheridan guest announcement came after a couple days when AsiaPop Comicon revealed on their FB page that Jessica Henwick had to cancel her appearance at the event "due to unforeseen circumstances". Tye will be this year's comicon event's celebrity headliner alongside Fin Jones (Netflix's Iron Fist / Game of Thrones' Ser Loras Tyrell).

Hopefully, these two gentlemen will not cancel at the last minute, and that more big time celebrity guests will be announced in the coming days.

Tickets to AsiaPOP Comicon Manila 2018 are now available for purchase. You can read here for more information.
