by the same team behind Salt Lake Comic Con, which became one of the
premier pop culture comic con events in the country and the most
attended convention in the history of Utah with more than 125,000
attendees.

Renner has starred in Oscar-nominated films like “American Hustle,” “The
Hurt Locker,” and “The Town.” He received an Academy Award nomination

Best Supporting Actor nomination in 2011 for his role in “The Town.”

“Jeremy is one of the top names in Hollywood,” said Dan Farr, Salt Lake
Comic Con Founder and Producer. “He’s an amazing addition to our
celebrity line-up. We’re thrilled to give Utah fans a chance to meet the
actor behind some of our favorite characters and films including the
blockbuster ‘Avengers’ movies that have grossed over $3 billion at the
box office.”

Renner is best known to comic book fans for his role as Hawkeye/Clint
Barton in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Renner appeared in “Thor,” “The
Avengers,” “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” “Captain America: Civil War,” and
will appear in the soon-to-be-released “Captain America: Civil War.”

“Chris Evans, Anthony Mackie, Hayley Atwell and Sebastian Stan were such
a huge hit at Salt Lake Comic Con 2015,” said Bryan Brandenburg, Salt
Lake Comic Con Co-Founder and Chief Marketing Officer. “We knew we
wanted to bring another superhero from the Avenger franchise to Salt
Lake City after experiencing the overwhelming enthusiasm from our fans.
‘Captain America: Civil War’ is one of the most anticipated movies of
2016 and we’re honored and excited to bring one of its stars to meet our

as share stories and answer questions at a Spotlight Panel. Hundreds of

range of pop culture topics. The Vendor Hall features hundreds of booths
selling collectibles, clothes, exclusives, and other geeky merchandise.
Famous Authors and Artists will also be on hand to meet fans and sell
prints and books they will personally sign. The youngest fans will find
