MCM BIRMINGHAM COMIC CON – THE NEC – 19-20 NOVEMBER 2016
Whether he’s playing a sinister supervillain, barbarous orc, heroic druid or freedom-loving gladiator, our latest special guest certainly knows how to kick ass on screen! Yes, we’re thrilled to announce that Manu Bennett, whose film and TV credits include Arrow, Spartacus, The Hobbit and The Shannara Chronicles, will be joining us when MCM Birmingham Comic Con storms back to the NEC on 19-20 November.

Manu also stars in fantasy drama The Shannara Chronicles, playing magic-wielding Allanon, last of the druids, in MTV’s ongoing adaptation of Terry Brooks’ best-selling novel series.
Manu Bennett’s other appearances include Alaskan bloodsucker 30 Days of Night; award-winning Aussie film Lantana; John Cena actioner The Marine; legendary adventure show Xena: Warrior Princess and, earlier this year, Seth MacFarlane cartoon American Dad!.
