MCM London Expo Announces Green Lantern Movie as Official Sponsor


Over on their newly relaunched website, the MCM Expo Group have announced that the title sponsor for the next London Expo, taking place in May, will the upcoming Warner Bros superhero movie, The Green Lantern.

That’s an impressive sponsor for the long-running convention, which finds itself in its tenth year. The event has recently gained some strong competition, in the form of Mark Millar’s Kapow! Comic Con, which is also marketing itself as “London’s Comic Con”. While I haven’t had a chance to go to one, I quite like the more grass-roots nature of the Comic Village at MCM London, so I’m pleased to see that not everyone has shifted their allegiance over to “Millar Con”!

Official press release:

Green Lantern Lights Up The London Expo This May!

The MCM Expo group announced today the title sponsor for the next London Expo event taking place this May is to be the action adventure movie, The Green Lantern.

This forthcoming Warner Bros. release stars Ryan Reynolds as Lantern Hal Jordan and is based on the popular DC Comics series of the same name. The film which is due to be released in cinemas this June also features Blake Lively (Carol Ferris), Peter Sarsgaard (Hector Hammond) Mark Strong as the villain Sinestro.

The event will also be showcasing the forthcoming Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters videogame which is due to be released across all formats this summer by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.

The MCM Expo, now in its tenth year, is London’s premier event for covering movies, comics, games, anime, television and this announcement only serves to cement that reputation further.

“We are absolutely delighted that Green Lantern is title sponsor of May’s MCM Expo,” commented show co-organiser Bryan Cooney. “If ever a movie was tailor-made to appeal to our 50,000+ visitors it is Green Lantern, so we’re thrilled that the London MCM Expo is to play a key role in Warner Bros.’launch of the film and videogame.”

The event takes place on 27-29th May at the Excel London and more and information can be found at and ticket information is available from the sites store.
