Actor Tom Hiddleston from Marvel Studios’ “Thor: Ragnarok” at the San Diego Comic-Con International  in 2017, will appear at the second Ace Comic Con Jan 11 to 13 at Gila River Arena.

After a successful debut at Gila River Arena in January, ACE Comic Con will return to the arena Jan. 11-13, 2019 with a new lineup of celebrity guests.
Actor Tom Hiddleston, known for his portrayal of Loki in Thor and The Avengers movies; David Tennant, of Doctor Who;  Krysten Ritter, of Netflix’s Jessica Jones, and Daredevil Charlie Cox have been tapped to appear at the second Arizona ACEComic Con.
ACE Comic Con Arizona is a division of ACE Universe, a newly launched experiential events company created by brothers Gareb and Stephen Shamus. With 20 years of experience and 175 Comic Con shows under their belts, the brothers are creating a new immersive experience that looks to redefine the industry and break the mold of the linear Comic Con business.
Also announced to appear include WWE stars Charlotte Flair, Roman Reigns and Alexa Bliss as well as see WWE panels moderated by ring announcer Lilian Garcia.
The event will also feature top comic creators, hand-picked vendors and exhibitors, and live panel programming throughout the weekend, included with a General Admission ticket! Photo Ops, Autographs, and VIP Packages may also be purchased for an additional fee.
“When we first went to Gila River Arena, we knew we had found the right home for our next big event,” Gareb Shamus, ACE Universe chairman and CEO, said. “We believe the fans will fall in love with this new style of Comic Con and we can’t wait for everyone to enjoy everything the weekend will have to offer, which includes the opportunity to watch all of the can’t-miss programming on the arena Jumbotron.”
During last year’s events, thousands of fans strolled into the arena dressed as everything from Wonder Woman, Deadpool, Captain America and any other comic book character from the Marvel Universe with the enthusiasm of fans attending a sporting event.
Last year’s guests were treated to appearances by such stars as Spiderman actor Tom Holland, Sebastian Stan – who played the Winter Soldier, Anthony Mackie (The Falcon), Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter), John Bernthall (The Punisher), and Marvel comic book author Stan Lee among others were present for fans.
Tickets, VIP admissions, photo ops and autographs are on sale now at www.aceuniverse.com.
