Spurs legend Tony Parker performs at Comic Con in San Antonio

Spurs legend Tony Parker will appear at the SuperHero Car Show and Comic-Con hosted by Celebrity Fan Fest. The local Comic-Con will be held at the Freeman Expo Hall from August 4-7, but Parker will only be there on the last day of the festival.

Parker is no stranger to pop culture. The former point guard is a comic book connoisseur, so much so that his private collection of pop culture memorabilia will be on display at the San Antonio Museum of Art this summer. The four-time NBA champion has a huge arsenal of life-size statues of various characters from the DC and Marvel universes.

From June 10 through September 4, over 30 massive figures ranging from Spider-Man to Captain America to Thanos will vacate their posts in Parker’s private quarters and stand at attention in a SAMA gallery, according to the museum.

The beloved former Spurs player will be snapping photos and signing autographs with fans during his appearance at Comic-Con on August 7. He joins a star-studded cast as the following will also be at the festival: Ewan McGregor, aka Obi – Wan Kenobi; Sam J. Jones, known as “Flash Gordon”; Paul Bettany, known for his role as Vision in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and Rupert Friend, who stars in The Grand Inquisitor Obi Wan Kenobi.

The Superhero Car Show and Comic-Con will be a unique four-day event featuring celebrity appearances, including professional wrestlers, as well as a showcase of over 45 iconic Hollywood vehicles from major films and television shows. Participating cars include the 1966 Batcycle, 1966 Batmobile, Bad Boys vehicles, Herbie, the DeLorean from Back to the Future and the Scooby-Doo Mystery Machine.

According to Celebrity Fan Fest, the event, sponsored by Thomas J. Henry, is the first Comic-Con to offer children under 14 free entry every day with the purchase of an adult ticket.

The Celebrity Fan Fest, owned by PMX Events, held its inaugural event in 2019 and drew national attention and large crowds to San Antonio, with more than 36,000 fans flocking to the three-day celebration. The festival brought blockbuster stars like aquaman Jason Momoa and two-time Oscar nominee Jeremy Renner, who plays Hawkeye The Avengers movies, among other famous people.
