Melissa Benoist, who headlines the CW series “Supergirl,” and Tyler Hoechlin, who had a key role in MTV’s “Teen Wolf” as well as a recurring spot on ‘Supergirl’ as Superman, are among a few popular celebrities added to the lineup at the seventh annual Wizard World Portland at the Oregon Convention Center, February 22-24. Benoist, making her first Wizard World appearance, will attend on Saturday, February 23, while Hoechlin will appear on Saturday and Sunday.

Benoist first portrayed the “Kara Danvers/Supergirl” character in episodes of the DC series "Legends of Tomorrow" before reprising the role in "The Flash" and "Arrow." Now in its fourth season, the acclaimed show chronicles the adventures of Superman's cousin. Benoist's other roles include the 2018 Paramount TV miniseries "Waco," feature films Patriots Day and Lowriders and the Oscar-winning movie Whiplash.

Hoechlin made his first big splash in the 2002 film Road to Perdition before a regular role as "Martin Brewer" in "7th Heaven" helped land him the part as "Derek Hale" in "Teen Wolf." He will also be seen in the upcoming Netflix sci-fi drama "Another Life."

In addition, several other notables have been added, including Ray Fisher (Justice League, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice), Stella Maeve ("The Magicians"), Iyari Limon ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer"). They join a standout roster that already features Aquaman headliner Jason Momoa and eight “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” stars including Alyson Hannigan, Alexis Denisof, James Marsters, Juliet Landau, Julie Benz, Amber Benson, Clare Kramer and Charisma Carpenter, plus Hale Appelman (“The Magicians”), Matt Ryan (“Constantine,” “Legends of Tomorrow”) and Thomas Ian Nicholas (Rookie of the Year, American Pie). Additional celebrities may be announced closer to the event.

Wizard World Portland will also feature non-stop live entertainment, gaming, exclusive Q&A sessions with top celebrities, movie screenings hosted by stars and directors and more. Details to follow soon. Details on additional Artist Alley guests, programming and entertainment stage schedules and more will be announced closer to the event.

Wizard World events bring together thousands of fans of all ages to celebrate the best in pop culture: movies, television, gaming, live entertainment, comics, sci-fi, graphic novels, toys, original art, collectibles, contests and more.
