Several changes have been made to the guest list for the upcoming Atlanta Comic Con, which is scheduled to take place next weekend at the Atlanta World Congress Center.

Actors Lauren Cohen and Jon Bernthal ("The Walking Dead"), Anthony Mackie (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), and Nathan Fillion ("Firefly"/Serenity) have all had to cancel their appearances due to their filming schedules. However, a few new additions could make up for their absences.

Actor Kevin Sorbo, best known for his work in the shows "Hercules, the Legendary Journeys" and "Andromeda", has been added to the guest lineup. Sorbo is a frequent guest at sci-fi conventions, including Atlanta's own Dragon Con convention, and is a great addition to the Wizard World Comic Con tour.

Also added to the guest list is none other than comic book legend Stan Lee. Lee is the creative force behind Marvel comics and is the co-creator of some of comic's best known/loved characters, including Spider-Man, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, The Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Daredevil, and the Silver Surfer, and will be appearing on Sunday, June 1 only. In addition to being a guest, one (1) lucky winner will receive Two (2) Free STAN LEE VIP Tickets AND 3-Day Passes to Atlanta Comic Con!!
