Kapicic’s Appearance Postponed to 2023

Stefan Kapicic, originally set to appear at the postponed 2020 Forest City ComiCon is instead set to appear at the 2023 event.

In conversation with Kapicic, it was determined that postponing his appearance would be the best option in order to avoid potential delays or challenges related to international travel at this time.  Such unexpected delays could result in fan disappointment on short notice.  Forest City ComiCon has been working behind the scenes to book guests for the upcoming June 2022 event for which there will be new announcements shortly.

Stefan Kapicic, is best known to fans for his role as the iconic X-Men character “Colossus” in the record-breaking and Golden Globe nominated Marvel/Fox feature films Deadpool and Deadpool 2.

Forest City ComiCon is set to return to Centennial Hall on Saturday, June 25 following a two-year COVID hiatus.

Forest City ComiCon Rescheduled to 2022


In light of continued uncertainty regarding the effect that COVID-19 will have on events in the London region through the summer, the Forest City ComiCon has been rescheduled to Saturday, June 25, 2022 at Centennial Hall.

“It is our expectation that by June of 2022 it will be possible to operate the event in a way that is comfortable and safe for our fans and exhibitor partners,” said board member John Houghton.

The convention has made arrangements with primary guest, Stefan Kapicic to be able to attend the event which had originally been scheduled for the summer of 2020 prior to the pandemic shutdown. Kapicic is best known to fans for his role as the iconic X-Men character “Colossus” in the record-breaking and Golden Globe nominated Marvel/Fox feature films Deadpool and Deadpool 2. In addition, Kapicic has a number of exciting projects upcoming that are sure to be a draw for fans.

Fans who still hold tickets from originally scheduled 2020 event have automatically had their tickets moved forward to the 2022 event. Fans seeking a refund may contact the Forest City ComiCon by e-mail.

Looking Forward to 2021!

On this weekend, that would have been Forest City ComiCon 2020, we are grateful to our fans for their support, our exhibitors & sponsors for sticking with us, and our venue partners at Centennial Hall for supporting our decision to move the event to June 26, 2021.

Thank-you for your support of Forest City ComiCon. We’re glad to see COVID-19 cases trending downward in our region and hope everyone is taking steps to stay safe and protect our community.

One thing is still true: even with a one year head start, we know some of you will still be working on your cosplays the night before, around this time next year… But it will be worth it!!!
