Chris Hemsworth, star of the “Thor” superhero film franchise, won’t be the lead attraction at the upcoming ACE Comic Con in Seattle.
Hemsworth tweeted his apologies on Friday, citing last-minute scheduling conflicts that would prevent him from attending the first-ever event at the WaMu Theater and CenturyLink Field Event Center on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Hey everybody, I’m so sorry, but I won’t be able to make it to @ACEcomiccon Seattle next week due to last minute scheduling conflicts. We’re working to find another ACE event where I can make it up to you. Thanks for your continued support and I hope to see you soon! #ACEcomiccon https://t.co/g5WNJLILJo
