Aquaman is scheduled for release December 21, 2018

FanX® Salt Lake Comic Convention™ (http://FanXSaltLake.com/)
announced today that the Jason Momoa, King of Atlantis, will be
returning to Salt Lake City for FanX 2018 (FanX®) on September 8,
2018.

Momoa is an actor, director, writer and producer. He is a fan favorite
for his roles as Khal Drogo in HBO's Game of Thrones, Ronon Dex
in Stargate Atlantis and Conan in Conan the Barbarian. He
also made his debut in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice as
Aquaman, starred as Aquaman in the new Justice League movie in
2017, and is starring in Frontier for Netflix. In addition to Justice
League
, Momoa will headline a standalone Aquaman movie in
December 2018.

"Jason Momoa was a huge hit with our fans at our spring FanX in 2017.
There were so many of our fans that didn't get to meet him because he
sold out so quickly. When we found out we could bring him back we jumped
at the opportunity," said Dan Farr, FanX Founder and Show Producer.
"Jason was so kind and playful with people when he came here last year
so we just had to bring him back if we could."

FanX 2018 will provide fans with The Ultimate FanXperience™. Already
FanX 2018 is, without a doubt, the strongest guest lineup of any FanX
shows to date, and there are still at least 8 more guests to announce.
This year's event includes some incredible new features including the
Evermore Pavilion, a brand new Kidcon, and several yet to be announced
additions that will certainly confirm the "most attend" nature of this
year's convention.

"When Ben Affleck agreed to come to FanX18 we knew we wanted to bring
another Justice League member to our show," said Bryan Brandenburg, FanX
Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer. "With the upcoming release of Aquaman
in December and the incredible experience with his 2017 appearance, we
really wanted to bring back Jason Momoa, and fortunately for us, the
stars aligned once again."

FanX 2018 is Thursday, September 6 – Saturday, September 8, 2018 at the
Salt Palace Convention Center. For more information about FanX 2018 or
