Hollywood actor Tye Sheridan is coming to Manila for this year’s AsiaPOP Comicon.
The “Ready Player One” lead star will be one of the headlining guests in this year’s major comic convention, together with Netflix’s “Iron Fist” and “Game of Thrones” actor, Finn Jones.
Sheridan replaced Jones’ co-actor, Jessica Henwick, who due to “unforeseen circumstances” pulled out of her appearance commitment in the said event.
Sheridan also took on the role of Cyclops, the laser-eyed mutant in “X-Men: Apocalypse” last 2016.
Former guests at the convention included “Arrow” star Colton Haynes, “X-Men: Apocalypse” actor Nicholas Hoult, and “Stranger Things” casts Millie Bobby Brown, Joe Keery, Dacre Montgomery, Noah Schnapp, and Sadie Sink.
The AsiaPOP Comicon 2018 will be held at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City, from July 27-29. (Dyane Diasanta)
