Would love to do a shoot with him. Who is he?! (All images by Matthew Rettenmund)
I have been hitting up NY Comic Con for several years now, chiefly to take photos. In the past, I've braved the lines for some pic-withs (was happy I got Carrie Fisher and William Shatner, among others).
This year, I literally spent Saturday there looking for interesting costumes — and hot boys — to photograph.
Okay, maybe choosing one hottest guy is a farce.
While there, I did have two celeb encounters.
Joe Manganiello, with his body of Death Saves
First, I ran into Joe Magnaniello as he arrived to plug his Death Saves (?!) line. He was pretty sullen and looked like he rolled out of bed and into an Uber to get there, but was still, of course, hot.
Joe kindly gave me a posed pic
In case you've always wondered how he'd look tearing into a box ...
The bicep was flexed at rest.
Good hair day
Next, I was on the main floor when a commotion ensued and I spotted Zachary Levi at the center of it. He'll be playing Shazam. I think he's adorable (and tall), and he very sweetly let a fan put some strange red bird on his shoulder, not fearing it might have polonium in it or anything.
I guess a little birdy told me Zachary would materialize in the main hall ...
Levi was also nice to me, pausing to give me some smiles and asking who I was shooting for.
The most beautiful Spider-Man, and his sidekick seemed cute, too (behind the ever-present mask)!
The rest of the show, I just wandered.
I found this work of art in Artists' Alley.
Enjoy my photos ...
This was like Prince as Superman. His body was my plutonium.
The exquisite Charlie Castle aka Super Saiyan
Show me your staff.
Some authentic Star Wars gayness
I would, in a Flash!
This weenie costume was on the money.
He decided to buy his costume because it was half off.
You better pink!
The kid was mortified, but cowabunga, this was a great concept.
This time it's fur real.
Wall of muscle
Raising the hoof
She had violet tendencies
Riverdale ... hi!
Keeping up with the Joneses
This Joker was wild.
There were so many hot Spider-Men, but this one really needed a weapons check.
So many guys insisted on putting their masks on for photos, but I wanted their faces!
Wakanda was everywhere you looked this year.
I never was very good at reading.
More of the dude at the top of the post ...
That was fast!
