With plenty of DC Comics actors already on the lineup, organizers behind Celebrity Fan Fest are now adding folks from the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Anthony Mackie, who plays Sam Wilson/Falcon, will make an appearance at the pop-culture convention. Mackie made his MCU debut in Captain America: The Winder Soldier and also appeared in Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. In addition, he's set to reprise his role for the upcoming TV series Falcon & Winter Soldier, alongside Sebastian Stan.

Though the festival is three days, Mackie is only set to appear Saturday, June 15, and Sunday, June 16.

Mackie joins other Marvel actors already announced for the festival: Jeremy Renner (Hawkeye), Paul Bettany (Vision) and Benedict Wong (Doctor Strange's Wong).

No word on whether Mackie will bring his gift from Captain America.

Celebrity Fan Fest is slated for June 14-16 at Freeman Coliseum and Expo Hall. Ticket info and a full lineup of celebrities taking part in the second annual offering can be found here.
