[CANCELLED] Pop Culture News | Hayley Atwell (Peggy Carter) is Coming to APCC Manila 2016! (UPDATED: CANCELLED)

11:33 PM

June 16, 2016, Thursday

UPDATE: APCC has announced that the arrival of Hayley Atwell for the event has been cancelled due to filming schedule conflicts of her new TV series "Conviction". This is very sad news indeed. They have new guests and you can see it on their FB page. Below is their announcement of the cancellation:




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Pop culture fans, the long wait is over! Asia POP Comicon Manila has announced their first Hollywood headliner for this year. And it is none other than the beautiful, HAYLEY ATWELL aka Agent Peggy Carter.






Atwell is known for portraying Captain America’s love interest Peggy Carter in “Captain America: The First Avenger”. After that movie, Peggy became a fan favorite---which led to Atwell having her own ABC show entitled, “Agent Carter”. Throughout its run, Agent Carter was so well-loved by the fans that a lot of girls/women looked up to her. I was one of those women. :)




Even after the show was cancelled, Atwell still gained many fans. Agent Carter is one of my girl crushes/idols because she is independent, strong, fierce, and badass. She secretly fights bad guys, while maintaining a normal life of a single woman in 1940s America.

I was already impressed with the character and the actress in the “First Avenger”, but I loved Atwell more when she got her own TV show. She is one of my role models because she did really well in portraying one of the strongest female characters on TV. I wish to meet her and it looks like that is coming true! :D

Even before APCC revealed that Hayley Atwell is guest number one, I already knew it was her because of this silhouette:
I think it was a bit obvious, right? :))))
When the news came out last night, I WAS REALLY, REALLY VERY HAPPY BECAUSE FINALLY, I WILL BE ABLE TO MEET ONE OF MY ROLE MODELS. I think my reaction in Facebook says it all hahahaha XD

Asia POP Comicon Manila 2016 will be held from August 26 to 28, 2016 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City. So, I have two months to prepare for my Peggy Carter cosplay AND to save up for the photograph session. Yes, the price for the session will be a bit pricey. But I know it will be worth it once I meet and take a photo with Hayley Atwell.  
Last year, APCC brought Colton Haynes from Arrow, Nathalie Emmanuel from Game of Thrones, and Paul Bettany from The Avengers. Almost everyone who attended the APCC 2015 agreed that they leveled up the pop culture convention scene in the Philippines. Even if they had some flaws, APCC left a mark here by bringing some of the well-known pop culture icons.  
I am so excited for this year’s APCC Manila! Not only is Hayley Atwell coming here, but they will also be announcing more guests  in the next weeks. This is just guest number one! What more for the next Hollywood headliners?!
This is me now:
The ticket prices for APCC 2016 was announced last July 17, as well as the prices for the photograph and autograph sessions of Hayley Atwell. Below are the details:



Time to save up! :D

  1. Ok don't know why my comment disappeared. Anyway, I've been re-watching "TFA" so my poor DVD skips now but so glad they found Atwell. Hope she comes back to Asiapopcomic next year (maybe too soon). Can't do anything with my Aug plans not reaching a compromise. *sigh*

  3. I've never heard of her :) But I'm not good at keeping up with TV and movies! I'm not big into the Comicon scene, but I know a lot of people who are, so I'm sure I'll hear more about her in the future.

  4. Agent Carter is definitely my type of leading lady. It still feels sad though, that her date with Captain America didn't happen. I wonder if there's a fanfic for that.

  5. Ok, I have to be honest, I don't know her real name and haven't watched her shows. But when I looked at her, I was like, "I saw this girl already!" Then I remember seeing her from Captain America First Avenger! She's beautiful. :)

  9. It's such a good thing I read this post. It reminded me of Comic con stuff that I needed to take care of. My family and I are going since my son is such a huge Pokemon fan and my sister actually loves anime. I personally only know SailorMoon.

    1. Last year, the ticket was P500, but it is understandable because they brought a lot of international guests here. In fact, APCC ticket prices here in Manila is cheaper than the San Diego Comic Con or other cons in different countries. Plus, it will be worth it. :D
