Sharpen your fangs and get your capes out, as AsiaPOP Comicon Manila 2017 (APCC Manila)
unveils its next celebrity guest — no less than Hollywood actor Tyler Hoechlin — who is set to soar at APCC
Manila, slated from August 25 to 27 at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City.
Tyler Hoechlin plays tragic werewolf Derek Hale in the MTV series Teen Wolf. He also stunned
audiences last year with his appearance as the iconic Superman in the CW series Supergirl.
An established performer who had been acting since he was nine, Hoechlin’s first big break came
when he played the timid Michael Sullivan, Jr. in the crime film Road to Perdition. This landed him several
nominations and awards, as well as the role of Martin Brewer in the long-running series 7th Heaven.
The rest was history, as he made appearance after appearance in a wide variety of movies and
television series: horror flicks such as 2008’s Solstice, comedies such as 2011’s Hall Pass, and appearances
in the likes of CSI Miami, Lincoln Heights, My Boys, and Castle.
“It is great to have Tyler Hoechlin as one of our main talents at AsiaPOP Comicon Manila 2017 as
he resonates very well with our target pop-culture Filipino fans who have loved him immensely in Teen
Wolf, while he has also made an impact in the iconic character of Superman in Supergirl TV series” said
Abdulla Mahmood, director – marketing and international business development, while further adding
“It’s a fantastic opportunity for Tyler Hoechlin’s die-hard fans to meet and greet him in intimate session
during the event in Manila.”
Hoechlin will next be seen in the global sensational series, Fifty Shades Freed, the third installment
in the bestselling Fifty Shades series and stars opposite Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan.
He is slated to appear in the Peter Hutchings-directed series Departures, alongside of Asa
Butterfield, Nina Dobrev, and Maisie Williams.
Also joining the fray is another veteran of the comics industry, Rodney Ramos. Having been a
professional penciller and inker for more than 15 years, Ramos’ skills have graced the pages of various
titles across major studios Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Marvel U.K., Valiant, Acclaim, Malibu, and
His inking credits include the critically-acclaimed Transmetropolitan, Spider-Man, X-Men, Batman,
Wonder Woman, and many more.
The two join guest Ray Fisher, who plays DC’s Cyborg in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and
Justice League, for a weekend of unforgettably awesome experiences for fans of movies, TV, comics, music,
cosplay, and everything in between.
