DES MOINES, Iowa - May 22, 2018 - PRLog -- David Tennant, who starred as the "Tenth Doctor" on the long-running series "Doctor Who," and Elijah Wood, who starred as "Frodo Baggins" in the iconic The Lord of the Rings trilogy and reprised the role in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, have been added to the celebrity roster at next weekend's Wizard World Comic Con Des Moines at the Iowa Events Center. Both will appear on Saturday and Sunday, June 2-3, as Wizard World, Inc. (OTCBB:WIZD) continues its 2018 schedule with its fourth event in Des Moines.

For "Whovians," it will be a rare opportunity to meet the British star, who has also made an impact on audiences in the acclaimed current TV series "Broadchurch" and the Netflix series "Jessica Jones"). Tennant's principal run as the Tenth Doctor began in 2005 and continued through 2009, with a reprisal in the landmark 50th anniversary special "The Day of the Doctor" in 2013. Since his early work on local Scottish television through roles in some of the most beloved fantasy and sci-fi franchises of all time, Tennant has been entertaining audiences with his unique brand of wit, warmth and humanity.

Widely regarded as one of the most gifted actors of his generation, Wood continues to challenge his craft with boundary-pushing roles that span an extensive array of different styles and genres across film and television. Some of his post-LOTR work includes co-starring role in last year's "Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency," The Trust opposite Nicholas Cage and The Last Witch Hunter with Vin Diesel and Rose Leslie.

Tennant and Wood join Winston Duke (Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War), Gregg Sulkin ("Runaways," "Faking It"), Matt Ryan ("Legends of Tomorrow," "Constantine"), Nichelle Nichols ("Star Trek"), James Marsters ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Vidiots") and the "Supernatural" duo of Jim Beaver and Lisa Berry atop the roster of celebrity guests scheduled to attend the comic con and pop culture extravaganza.

Wizard World Comic Con 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. The sixth event scheduled on the 2018 Wizard World calendar, Des Moines show hours are Friday, June 1, 4-9 p.m.; Saturday, June 2, 10 a.m.-7 p.m.; Sunday, June 3, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Kids 10 and under are admitted free with paid adult.

Wizard World Comic Con Des Moines is also the place for cosplay, with fans young and old showing off their best costumes throughout the event. Fans dressed as every imaginable character – and some never before dreamed – will roam the convention floor and participate in the famed Wizard World Costume Contest on Saturday evening.
