News of Fisher's upcoming appearance set the hearts of "Justice League" fans racing, as well as of those who have been keeping an eye on the guest lineup of AsiaPop Comicon. 

Organizers have been worryingly mum about the lineup, considering that previous iterations have announced guests as early as two months prior to the start of the event. 

This year's AsiaPop Comicon will run from August 25 to 27 at SMX Convention Center in Pasay City. 

Fisher is the first Hollywood celebrity to be confirmed as a guest, and will serve as one of the main draws of the festival alongside exciting showcases from Marvel Studios and Netflix. 

Others guests include international comic artists Alan Quah and Stanley Lau, otherwise known as Artgerm, toy designers Jason Freeny and Quiccs, and Simone Legno of tokidoki fame. 

Shoji Kawamori, one of the original creators of the iconic mecha anime "Macross," will also be making an appearance.
