“Aquaman” star Jason Momoa tops the list of superstars heading to Wizard World comic con at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center on Jan. 4 to Jan. 6.
Momoa was added to the line up for Wizard World Comic Con and will be available for photo ops on Friday and Saturday. However, DC fans hoping to snag a photo with their favorite star will have to pony up.
Pricing for time with Momoa off the heels of his successful Justice League film starts at $125. Autograph signings with the star on Friday and Saturday costs $125. Photos start at $150, and fans willing to pay a $429.99 can get the “VIP Gold Package.”
Momoa had significant roles in the popular series “Baywatch” and “Stargate: Atlantas” before a turn as “Khal Drago” on the acclaimed “Game of Thrones” was followed by his first appearance as “Aquaman” in Batman vs. Superman Dawn of Justice in 2016. That led to a larger role as the undersea superhero in Justice League and star billing in this month’s hit release.
Momoa joins “Outlander” stars Richard Rankin, Sophie Skelton, Lotte Verbeek and Graham McTavish and author Diana Gabaldon, the “Luke Cage” tandem of Mike Colter and Simone Missick, Mads Mikkelsen (“Hannibal,” Doctor Strange), “The Vampire Diaries” quintet of Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley, Daniel Gillies, Zach Roerig and David Alpay and others as well as an outstanding array of programming, live entertainment, cosplay contests, gaming and more at the ninth annual Wizard World New Orleans, January 4-6.
Wizard World events bring together thousands of fans of all ages to celebrate the best in pop culture: movies, television, gaming, live entertainment, comics, sci-fi, graphic novels, toys, original art, collectibles, contests and more.
