Deseret News reporter Jared Page is on the scene to live-tweet the announcement of some of the stars slated to attend the second Salt Lake Comic Con in September.
On Monday, Christopher Lloyd from "Back to the Future" became the first guest announced for what has become the state's largest convention in less than a year.
The inaugural Salt Lake Comic Con was held in September 2013, with more than 50,000 people purchasing tickets and creating enough of an unexpected crowd that fire marshals had to limit access — letting in one guest only after another guest had exited.
Celebrities like Spider-Man co-creator Stan Lee, Star Trek's William Shatner, Manu Bennett of "Arrow" and "The Hobbit," William Kircher of "The Hobbit" and the original Incredible Hulk Lou Ferrigno were in attendance.
Building on that success, Salt Lake Comic Con's FanXperience convention was held in April and pulled in more than 100,000 fans, along with stars like Nathan Fillion, Karen Gillian and Patrick Stewart.
