SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 8, 2018--FanX® Salt Lake Comic Convention™ ( announced today that the Jason Momoa, King of Atlantis, will be returning to Salt Lake City for FanX 2018 (FanX ® ) on September 8, 2018.

Momoa is an actor, director, writer and producer. He is a fan favorite for his roles as Khal Drogo in HBO’s Game of Thrones, Ronon Dex in Stargate Atlantis and Conan in Conan the Barbarian. He also made his debut in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice as Aquaman, starred as Aquaman in the new Justice League movie in 2017, and is starring in Frontier for Netflix. In addition to Justice League, Momoa will headline a standalone Aquaman movie in December 2018.

“Jason Momoa was a huge hit with our fans at our spring FanX in 2017. There were so many of our fans that didn’t get to meet him because he sold out so quickly. When we found out we could bring him back we jumped at the opportunity,” said Dan Farr, FanX Founder and Show Producer. “Jason was so kind and playful with people when he came here last year so we just had to bring him back if we could.”

In addition to Momoa, FanX 2018 organizers have secured a number of big name guests and fan favorites, including Ben Affleck, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Brandon Routh, Tom Hopper, Ian McDiarmid, Rainn Wilson, Dick Van Dyke, David Tennant, Evangeline Lilly, Karl Urban, Lucy Lawless, Renee O’Connor, Tim Curry, Tom Welling, Michael Rosenbaum, Chuck Norris, Brent Spiner, Jennifer Morrison, Tricia Helfer, Kevin Sorbo, Paige O’Hara, Robby Benson, Paul Reubens, Gaten Matarazzo, Amy Jo Johnson, Barry Bostwick, John Wesley Shipp, Vic Mignogna, Caity Lotz, Katee Sackhoff, Tom Payne, Austin Amelia, Steven Ogg, Lou Ferrigno, Meat Loaf, David Hayter, John DiMaggio, Femi Taylor, Jason David Frank and Mark Sheppard.

FanX 2018 will provide fans with The Ultimate FanXperience™. Already FanX 2018 is, without a doubt, the strongest guest lineup of any FanX shows to date, and there are still at least 8 more guests to announce. This year’s event includes some incredible new features including the Evermore Pavilion, a brand new Kidcon, and several yet to be announced additions that will certainly confirm the “most attend” nature of this year’s convention.

“When Ben Affleck agreed to come to FanX18 we knew we wanted to bring another Justice League member to our show,” said Bryan Brandenburg, FanX Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer. “With the upcoming release of Aquaman in December and the incredible experience with his 2017 appearance, we really wanted to bring back Jason Momoa, and fortunately for us, the stars aligned once again.”

FanX 2018 is Thursday, September 6 – Saturday, September 8, 2018 at the Salt Palace Convention Center. For more information about FanX 2018 or to purchase tickets now, visit http://www.FanXSaltLake.com/.
