“The reason we are able to get such great guests is because of our fans,” Phillips said. “Our fans continually get talked about by our guests as being some of the best in the world.

“There’s a quote that of course, we love, from Stan Lee before he passed, which is that ‘you’re the best comic convention in the world,'” said Phillips.

Tom Holland is an English actor best known for playing Spider-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

He has starred or co-starred as the character in five films.

Before Spider-Man, Holland was one of four actor/dancers to play Billy Elliott, a fictional British youth who made his way out of a tough, working-class neighborhood by taking ballet lessons.
