Forbidden Planet, London’s premier comic shop has just announced two high-profile celebrity signing events for the upcoming cinematic releases of Shazam! and Hellboy.
On Monday 18th March 2019, fans can meet Shazam! stars Zachary Levi & Mark Strong along with Shazam! director David F. Sandberg from 6pm-6.45pm. They will be in attendance to sign Shazam movie posters (which will be free to those lucky enough to attend).
Earlier in the day, David Harbour will be at the store doing a signing to promote his new movie Hellboy. The Stranger Things actor will be in-store at 1.15pm-1.45pm signing posters (again, free to those lucky to be there).
IMPORTANT – both signings are via wristband only. There are only 100 wristbands available for each event.
To attend the Shazam autograph event, fans must pick up a wristband (on a first-come, first served basis) from 10am on Saturday 16th March at Forbidden Planet’s London store.

The stars for both events will only be signing posters which will be given to the lucky wristband owners. No other merchandise will be signed due to time restraints.
Shazam shows us that we all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s case, by shouting out one word – Shazam! – this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Zachary Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart – inside a ripped, godlike body – Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them!
Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Mark Strong).
Shazam! hits cinemas on 5th April 2019 through Warner Bros.
Hellboy is back, and he’s on fire. From the pages of Mike Mignola’s seminal work, this action-packed story sees the legendary half-demon superhero (David Harbour) called to the English countryside to battle a trio of rampaging giants. There he discovers The Blood Queen, Nimue (Milla Jovovich), a resurrected ancient sorceress thirsting to avenge a past betrayal. Suddenly caught in a clash between the supernatural and the human, Hellboy is now hell-bent on stopping Nimue without triggering the end of the world.
Hellboy arrives in cinemas on 11th April 2019 through Lionsgate.
Good luck to all who try and grab a wristband for these amazing events at Forbidden Planet! All appearances are subject to change.
