Comic Con Belfast sees caped crusaders and swashbuckling pirates flock to SSE Arena

By Nevin Farrell

Caped crusaders mingled with bloodthirsty pirates and princesses from a galaxy far, far away over the weekend as thousands flocked to the Belfast Film and Comic Con.

Fans dressed as Teenage Turtles, time travelling doctors and other comic book superheroes gathered at the SSE Arena for the annual celebration of film and fantasy.

And with the new Star Wars movie just weeks away from showing in cinemas, many were delighted to welcome Dave Prowse who played Darth Vader from the original trilogy.

Margot Kidder, who rose to fame as Lois Lane in the 1978 film Superman opposite Christopher Reeve, was also there to meet and greet fans.

Game of Thrones fans were also happy to see Dean-Charles Chapman, better known as the young king Tommen Baratheon from the hit show filmed in Northern Ireland.

Belfast Film and Comic Con brought many favourite stars from TV, film and comics to Belfast as well as offering a whole host of activities including photo shoots, panels, autograph sessions and hundreds of stalls full of television and film memorabilia.
