Retired MMA fighter Georges St-Pierre will also be on hand for the event as a guest of honour. He appeared in the 2014 film Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

“Well, it’s a different vibe. It’s a new vibe,” said St-Pierre. “I’ve been asked in the past before but during the summer, very often as a competitor, we’re very busy so I was not able to do it all the time. So now, it’s fun.”

“I’m going to be able to be here and meeting the fans and make them happy.”

Comiccon runs from July 5-7 at Montreal’s Palais des congrès. Tickets are now on sale and more information is available online.
