Right around the blissful announcement that Marvel’s Agent Carter will be getting a season 2, it appears that star Hayley Atwell is joining the comic con circuit. Earlier this week it was announced that the delightful actress will be attending Toronto’s Fan Expo Canada this coming September. She’ll be joined by other familiar faces of the big and small screen, such as Billy Dee Williams (Star Wars: Episodes V and VI), George A. Romero (Dawn of the Dead), Jeri Ryan (Star Trek Voyager), Jenna Coleman (Doctor Who), Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf), and Robin Lord Taylor (Gotham).

Atwell’s attendance was met with intense enthusiasm by Canadian fans, many of whom expressed that they would be attending the convention just for the opportunity to meet the woman behind the fiery Peggy Carter. I know that my personal reaction would have been more than a little embarrassing had it occurred outside of the privacy of my own home; I’m quite fond. The actress, who’s currently nominated for a Saturn Award for Best Actress on Television, is certain to have attendees lined up with baited breath. Fan Expo Canada is the country’s largest convention, and the third largest in North America behind San Diego Comic Con and New York Comic Con. The pop culture extravaganza expects to host over 125,000 fans at 750,000 sq ft of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre for the four-day event September 3-6, 2015. However, it won’t be the actresses’ first time in the city; she’s attended the eponymous Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) in past years.

The convention has also announced some of their comic book guests, which includes names like Neal Adams, Esad Ribic, and Alex Maleev. The list of names one can see the people behind will only grow longer as fall approaches, but many fans have been easily sold on what little we already know.

Fan Expo Canada will be taking over the Metro Toronto Convention Center September 3rd-6th, 2015.
