CONVENTIONS: MCM Manchester on top form, Kid

DCWorld were at MCM Manchester on Sunday to provide you with all the DC gossip from Arrow’s very own Manu Bennett. The DC theme of the day was definitely Deathstroke, with Manu as the star attraction and Deatstroke cosplayers killing it with their awesome costumes.

The convention was held at the Manchester Central Convention Centre, a great location to drive to from the M6. The venue was large, with much going on, but unfortunately there was only one big DC star there, and that was Deathstroke star, Manu Bennett.

It did feel that there were too many people in the building at one point during the day, but fun was had by all as the 5000 Harley Quinn cosplayers were swarming around the event (seriously, can girls not cosplay anybody else?). There were some top costumes, including a great Batman, although for us this Deathstroke that we met early on in the day was the winner of best cosplay at MCM Manchester 2017:

We also met up with the winner of our exclusive Facebook competition to win tickets for MCM Manchester, Ben Wake. He was super excited to get to be amongst it all was loving the cosplayers and stalls around the arena. He bought his Aunt with him to enjoy the fun, with the exclusive priority tickets that he won courtesy of MCM Comic Con!

Later in the day we caught a live interview on the MyMBuzz stage with Manu Bennett (coverage of that is coming in the next few days). Where he spoke about the loss of his Mum and brother, his appearances on Arrow in the upcoming series, and also his relationship with Stephen Amell. It’s one your definitely not going to want to miss if you are a fan of Arrow!

Overall, MCM was a great comic con in Manchester, and we will be very excited to attend upcoming events in the future. Keep an eye on our Twitter and Facebook pages for more coverage of the event in the coming days!

DC World Interview with Sarah Douglas at LFCC

Hi all here is my first of many guest interviews from an amazing weekend at London Film and Comic Con at the london Olympia by Showmasters. My first is below with an absolute lovely lady Sarah Douglas from the Superman 1 & 2 Movies as well as other roles. This was a moment I shall hold onto forever as I’m a big Superman fan and meeting any cast members is always a dream. Sarah is really nice and as you shall see a lot of fun too, also a little scoop maybe that Sarah is up for playing a part in the TV series Supergirl and was asked for season 2 but timing was not right, so lets hope we get to see her in an upcoming season soon.

Thank you to Sarah and her management team.

Enjoy and leave a comment below.

SDCC : The Flash Panel Recap

The best weekend of the year, San Diego Comic Con, just ended and brought its lot of exclusives and sneak peeks for 2017 and beyond. DC shows were again strongly represented this year, and CW’s The Flash cast graced the Con with their presence for a very entertaining panel on Saturday, moderated by Stephanie Smith. They didn’t give a lot away (despite Grant Gustin confessing being awful at keeping secrets) but here are a few things we can expect in Season 4:

flash team

More Badass Iris West

Iris takes the lead of Team Flash in Barry’s absence, Candice Patton has confirmed. After an emotionally charged season for Iris, where she nearly died and lost Barry, it’s a very welcome turn for the character to come back to a strong, fierce leading lady who gets things done. According to Candice, Iris is “devastated, and focuses her energy on being a leader.” Interesting fact about season 3: No one except Grant told Candice about her character not dying.

A lighter tone

Producer Todd Hellbing promised “more jokes” in season 4. Season 3 was very dark and allowed characters to develop so much, but yes, a lighter tone is much needed this season!

Killer Frost is back! Or is she?

Danielle Panabaker had a blast on the panel teasing fans about the frosty villain. “No one’s gonna be disappointed” she promised, adding that playing Killer Frost was “so much fun”. Nothing else escaped, her lips were sealed!

Wally West keeps growing

Keiynan Lonsdale (dressed as Where’s Wally – a nice touch!) discussed character growth for Kid Flash. “Wally had to step up when Barry left and this gave him more freedom and more self-confidence. He’s humbler about his role in the team”

New faces

We know The Thinker is the new “Big Bad” this season; The 100’s Neil Sandilands portrays the new villain; whose name is Clifford DeVoe.

Kim Engelbrecht also joins the cast as The Mechanic, the Thinker’s sidekick.

Todd Hellbing also confirmed that we will see more of Gypsy, and her father, The Breacher, who will be played by Machete’s Danny Trejo, no less!

DC World Report Of Heroes & Villains Fanfest London

Hi all here is my report for Heroes and Villains FanFest London!

 

So I was lucky enough to get myself a Media pass to Heroes and Villains Fanfest at the London Olympia .

The amazing event is run by James Frazier who also runs the Walker Stalker events and Stephen Amell, actor from the Arrow TV show.
I even met James for a sneaky free photo too.
I arrived at the London Olympia on the Saturday and got to go in at 9am with the early crowd and had a look around to get the feel of the layout and where each guest was located as they would be signing autographs and taking photos with the public plus a photo shoot area too.
The first person I was able to meet was the very talented artist Lord Mesa he was selling some great items of his work and even got a quick selfie with him.
Then as 10.30am approached all the guests were arriving at their desks ready for meeting the fans and and sign autographs.
The first I met was Maisie Richardson Sellers from Legends of Tomorrow then shortly afterwards Jesica Lucas from Gotham, Brandon Routh from Legends of Tomorrow and Superman Returns, Mehcad Brooks from Supergirl, Josh Segarra from Arrow, Robbie Amell from The Flash and Shantel Vanstanten from The Flash.
I got a few autographs to add to my huge collection from each plus some funko pops signed too as I have now got into these getting signed and they look amazing.
The best part was that I managed to get most of the guests to do a quick video shoutout to DC World my site I run which is a DC Comics fansite for all DC Comics news and is on all social media platforms and I have been running for three years now.
I also had some professional photo shoots too with some of the guests which I must say was smoothly run and only there for a few minutes, you got in a line to queue and as soon as you left the booth your picture was printed ready for you to take home.
There were also some amazing stage talks with all the guests throughout the weekend and got to see some of these too, my favourite was the Gotham
cast.
At one point I even done a live stream video walk around for about eight minutes showing my audience from around the world what was happening at this great event, its had hundreds of views and was a great thing to do for some people who maybe looking at coming to one of these events or who couldn’t make it.
Later that night I attended The Nocking Point wine party which is a wine company owned by the Arrow star Stephen Amell and this was a great night. We all got a unique glass to take home plus food and drink all night with some guests on stage talking and a band.
The best part was at the end I managed to ask someone running the event if I can take a bottle of the special wine home to which I was given a couple of full bottles plus 3 glasses, a nice heavy backpack on the way home but worth it and I’m saving to open them on a special occasion.
The next day on the Sunday I returned to Heroes and Villains but this time I was in full Clark Kent reporter mode.
I managed to get four interviews with a few guests on camera including Sean Gunn from Guardians of the Galaxy and Mehcad Brooks from Supergirl, all have now been uploaded all to my YouTube channel and website, which you can view there. 
This day I also met Robin Lord Taylor and Drew Powell from the Gotham TV show and had photo sessions with them too, they were both great.
Overall the event was very well run and I had an amazing time, the autograph queues went quickly and the photo sessions were incredibly quick and the speed they was printed out was amazing. I will be returning next year and just awaiting the date announcement.
The Ticket collection on the Friday was very quick at will call and was amazed I was seen in minutes, no queues at all.
Overall Heroes and Villains Fanfest gets a 10 out of 10 by me and was a joy to go to.
I think a lot of other events could learn a thing or two from these guys.
A big thanks to all of my fans and supporters who I met too and even asked to have pictures with me, this felt amazing and can’t wait for more.
