Tens of thousands expected to attend Toronto’s Fan Expo

An impressive lineup of stars, including Christopher Lloyd, Stan Lee, Gillian Anderson, and Lou Ferrigno, are set to appear at the Toronto Fan Expo.

The 18th edition of the massive event opened at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on Thursday. Comic Con is the largest gaming, horror, comic, science fiction and anime event in the country and it’s among the largest in the world.

The original Incredible Hulk, Lou Ferrigno, officially opened the expo Thursday morning. He’ll stop by Breakfast Television on Friday to talk about the big event.

Back to the Future star Lloyd stopped by Breakfast Television on Thursday ahead of his appearances at the Comic Con event. He said watching the film still feels strange nearly three decades later.

“I’ll look and think, well I did this OK, gee I wish I could do that again. It’s kind of a trip because it takes you back in time, you see yourself at a younger age,” he said. “It’s just strange.”

About 80,000 people are expected to attend this year’s expo, which includes some 700 exhibitors. It also includes autograph and photo sessions and informational workshops with industry experts.
