If she's that busy, probably cancels! I personally abhor her, so no shot I go.

She'll be there. With the announcement that some proceeds are going to a charity for girls it would be a P.R. nightmare for her to cancel. Her management will drag her there kicking and screaming if need be.

If there ever was a con that was likely to get Samuel L. Jackson, this would be the one.

So if she is filming they will fault the film 3/4 days for this?

She'll probably go but this is where the ACE model is just horrid. They get a big Marvel name once, and you're forced usually to book travel with a high possibility of cancellation. Chicago had a ton of cancellations last year.

At the very least, this year it's at the convention center and not the navy pier.

First, I am really skeptical about the percentage of appearance cancellations for filming are actually because the celeb is actually filming on a weekend.
Second, there is no way she is there for the whole con. Saturday and Sunday at most, maybe even just one day.

I'm thinking they have blocked out her availability that weekend on her schedule already or no way would they say she's going to be there to benefit charity. Sure stuff happens but it would hurt her image bad if she cancelled. Just my opinion.

"Likely" is too strong a word. I should have said has even a small chance.

How is Ace any different then any other convention that gets a big name guest? The way guests cancel these days there is no higher chance of cancelation at ACE then any other convention. Booking travel to any convention based on a guest is always a risk.

If she has to cancel she will just apologize and either her and or whatever is causing her to cancel will just make a nice donation to the charity that would have benefited from her appearance and her image will be just fine.

Rudd at MM had charity attached and that was cancelled. I believe she is blocked out for 2 days but nYC will remember the Ezra disaster where he flew from filming and flew right back being late and cancelling for sunday

If they're filming late Friday and early Monday, they ain't traveling. Yes, it's a risk with any big name, but even more so with Marvel.
