Deadpool 2 Screening Hosted by Nicieza Headlines Comic Con Revolution

The second annual Comic Con Revolution is scheduled for later this month in Ontario, California, and CBR has the first look at the (nearly) full schedule of programming for the two-day convention.

Comic Con Revolution 2018 is headlined by an event that actually takes place the day before the convention: a screening of the forthcoming Deadpool 2 at 10 a.m. on Friday, May 18. But it's not just your standard screening: It'll be preceded by a Q&A with Deadpool co-creator Fabian Nicieza, who will stick around to enjoy lunch -- chimichangas, a meal that would make the Merc with a Mouth happy -- with 20 fans after the movie. Fans can attend the screening by buying a special ticket on the Comic Con Revolution website, with the package including lunch with Nicieza priced at $125.

"The only thing better than spending the Deadpool 2 opening with a theater full of die-hard Deadpool fans is eating nutritious, delicious chimichangas for lunch with some of those fans after the movie,” Nicieza said in a statement. “And I’m excited to spend the film’s entire opening weekend at Comic Con Revolution, meeting fans and checking out all the Deadpool cosplay.”

Nicieza is just one of multiple comics craeators scheduled for the show, including Jason Aaron, Howard Chaykin, Chris Claremont, Stan Sakai, Dustin Nguyen, Marv Wolfman and Scott Koblish. Additionally, multiple names closely associated with DC's animation projects will be in attendance, including Kevin Conroy (longtime voice of Batman), Susan Eisenberg (Justice League's Wonder Woman), Loren Lester (Robin on Batman: The Animated Series), Diane Pershing (Poison Ivy on multiple animated series) and legendary voice director Andrea Romano.

Panels include "Stories Behind the Stories" at 5 p.m. on Saturday with Jason Aaron, Jim Krueger, Chris Claremont and Fabian Nicieza; "Taking Comics to Screen," scheduled for Sunday at noon, with Jason Aaron and Daredevil TV writer Christos Gage; and "Drawing Black Panther with Ray Anthony Height" on Sunday at 3 p.m. Additionally, two "top-secret" panels are yet to be revealed.

Comic Con Revolution takes place May 19 and May 20 at the Ontario Convention Center in Ontario, California, and is produced by Atomic Crush Events. The full programming schedule and panel descriptions follow below.
