Event organisers promise celebrity guests, panels, independent creators plus more for gamers, comic book collectors, film fans, TV buffs and cosplayers.

The actor - who starred most recently in Marvel Studios' Loki - will be available for one-to-one photos and autographs with fans who have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.

Taking place this October half term, youngsters visiting ExCeL London can climb into a treehouse area to find activities to keep them amused, including creative workshops, quidditch demos and silver sabre training.
