Fan Expo will welcome a Canadian sci-fi legend to its 2018 event.
William Shatner, renowned for his role as Captain James T. Kirk on the original Star Trek series and movies, has joined the growing line-up. Captain Kirk may be the role he’s best known for but he’s also been a fixture in movies and TV over the years, often playing himself. He was most recently seen in Canadian mini-series The Indian Detective as well as lending his voice to the animated feature Batman ‘66 as supervillain Harvey Dent/Two-Face.
Shatner will appear alongside fellow Canadians Evangeline Lilly (Ant-Man and The Wasp, Lost, The Hobbit Trilogy) and Michael J. Fox (The Back to the Future Trilogy). Other guests who have been announced include Robin Lord Taylor (Gotham, The Walking Dead), Jeff Goldblum (Jurassic World 2, Thor: Ragnarok), Karen Gillan (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 1 and 2, Doctor Who) Jennifer Morrison (Once Upon a Time, House MD) and Stranger Things Joe Keery.
Fox will be part of a Back to the Future reunion featuring co-stars Christopher Lloyd, Lea Thompson and Tom Wilson. The event will also feature a reunion of the stars of The Princess Bride Cary Elwes, Wallace Shawn and Chris Sarandon.
