press release

Reed Exhibitions Africa, ReedPOP and VS Gaming have confirmed that Jason Momoa will be attending Comic Con Africa on the 15th & 16th September. Jason is most well-known for his legendary roles as Aquaman in Warner Bros’ Justice League and as the Dothraki warlord “Khal Drogo” in Game of Thrones.

Due to his iconic performances he is the perfect fit to be one of the headline guests at the first African Comic Con.

Comic Con Africa will be held from 14 – 16 September 2018 at the Kyalami Grand Prix Circuit & International Convention Centre. Comic Con Africa, the first of its kind on the continent, will feature all elements of comic books, science fiction/fantasy related film, series and similar popular arts as well as a large range of pop culture and entertainment elements including animation, toys, gadgets and so much more.

2018 will feature Jason in the standalone Aquaman movie which will be premiering later this year, and Jason stars as a lead in the Netflix action/adventure series called Frontier, produced by Jeff Fierson and Brad Peyton (SAN ANDREAS), with Peyton also directing.

Jason’s other movie appearances include Conan the Barbarian, Bullet to the Head, Sugar Mountain and The Bad Batch. Later this year he will also be appearing in the action-thriller Braven, directed by Lin Oeding, that Jason is also producing.
