Celebrities Celebrate Comic-Con in Disguise

Find out how your favorite celebrities go undercover…

Comic-Con is one of the biggest events to take place throughout the year. New York Comic-Con had 180,000 attendees in 2016 and the upcoming San Diego Comic-Con in July 2017 is expected to have a bigger turnout. Their Four-day passes sold out in thirty minutes with one day passes selling out in only fifteen. And among those lucky enough to get a ticket are actual celebrities. Except these celebrities appear unnoticed by Comic-Con fans.   

In 2011, Justin Timberlake dressed as beloved "Sesame Street" duo Bert and Ernie, with Esquire magazine writer Chris Jones. Andrew Garfield also attended by dressing as, you guessed it, Spiderman. 

Being the big Spiderman fans they are, both Daniel Radcliffe and "Game of Thrones" actress Maisie Williams went all out for the 2014 convention in their Spiderman outfits. The famous “Lord of the Rings” director Peter Jackson went undercover as well strolling around in a creepy jester costume. While Jack Black strolled around in a stormtrooper mask. 

2015 was a big year for superheroes and villains. Marvel star Mark Ruffalo pulled on a creepy mask to wander Comic-Con and while there were plenty of fans who dressed as Jared Leto's green-haired Joker at Comic-Con, the "Suicide Squad" star himself went undercover in a baboon mask. 

While Henry Cavill was the only one that participated undercover for 2016 wearing a V for Vendetta mask while taking pictures with the “Suicide Squad” cast. 

Celebrities love to go undercover to try and enjoy themselves without being constantly bombarded with fans and paparazzi. To feel like part of the crowd. Daniel Radcliffe stated, “It’s great to be able to put on a mask and interact with people who don’t know who I really am. I spoke in an American accent the whole time. I felt like a spy about to be found out at any moment.”

Who do you think will make an undercover appearance at Comic-Con 2017?
