Fans will be able to delve into the Spider-Verse with their friendly neighborhood Spider-Man this fall in Salt Lake City when actor Tom Holland, who plays the titular hero, makes his way to FanX: Salt Lake Comic Convention on Sept. 5-7.
Holland was announced as a guest for the convention Tuesday morning, joining an already star-studded lineup including NSYNC favorites Chris Kirkpatrick and Joey Fatone, comedy classic Kel Mitchell and “Harry Potter” stars Jason Isaacs and Matthew Lewis.
“I think people will love him,” said FanX co-founder Dan Farr in an interview with the Daily Herald regarding the announcement. “He kind of really does fit the bill for what people imagine Spider-Man to be – the character the way he would seem to be if he were lifted off the comic books.”
But more than that, Holland is well known for his great, down-to-earth personality and positive interactions with fans.
“He also is just really likable,” Farr said, before noting that Salt Lake was chosen as one of only three conventions Holland will be attending this fall, joining a convention in the Midwest and another along the East Coast as the only events selected from over a dozen different offers and requests.
