It's still more than six months away, but Phoenix Comicon has already announced its first celebrity guests. And Marvel fans will be happy.
Three stars from the "Guardians of the Galaxy" superhero films will appear at the con in May: Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker and Sean Gunn. Passes to the three-day convention, which takes place May 24-27 at the Phoenix Convention Center, will go on sale Dec. 15. Attendees can start making reservations at the host hotels on Nov. 17.
Dave Bautista is Drax, a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy. Drax comes from a primitive race and has superhuman strength, durability and agility, and a regenerative healing factor. Bautista's Drax will appear next in 2018's "Avengers: Infinity War." Bautista is a semi-retired wrestler for the WWE, competing under the ring name Batista. He has also appeared in "Blade Runner 2049," "Spectre" and "Riddick." He will be at Phoenix Comicon on Saturday only.
