The Walking Dead star Khary Payton confirmed that he and many of his co-stars are swearing-off the Walker Stalker Con.
Last week, Walker Stalker Con creator James Frazier resigned as CEO following the negative reception towards conventions and an incident in which The Walking Dead star Angel Theory was “verbally assaulted” by a member of the event’s security staff. Furthermore, The Walker Stalker Con has been the subject of controversy following reports of actors not being paid for their appearance and a failure to provide refunds to guests.
In a post on his official Twitter account, The Walking Dead Khary Payton confirmed he and co-stars Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Melissa McBride, and Cooper Andrews will no longer attend Walker Stalker Con, which recently announced it will be exclusive to Atlanta, Georgie, after 2020, when the convention returns over Halloween weekend next year. In a follow-up post on Twitter, Khary Payton noted that’s sad The Walking Dead cast had to make this decision but that they will figure out a new way to interact with fans of the series:
“It makes me sad too. Hard to believe something that started off so well could end up this sideways. We’ll figure out a new conduit to see you guys but this has to stop.”

New ‘Titans’ Photos Show Off Aqualad And The Original Team
DC Universe has released eight brand new images from the upcoming fourth episode of the second season of Titans entitled, "Aqualad".
"Aqualad" will explore the dynamic among Dick Grayson/Robin (Brenton Thwaites), Donna Troy/Wonder Girl (Conor Leslie), Hank Hall/Hawk (Alan Ritchson), Dawn Granger/Dove (Minka Kelly) and Garth/Aqualad (Drew Van Acker) and how four years prior, their tight-knit family dynamic developed only to have their personal feelings bleed more into their work only to be exacerbated by the arrival of a new villain.
These new images give fans a new look at Drew Van Acker as Aqualad as well as a couple of new looks at the original team united together for action. In particular, we get our best look at how the Aqualad suit translates onscreen in live-action form.

In Season 2, following the aftermath of their encounter with Trigon, Dick reforms the Titans. Under his supervision in their new home at Titans Tower, Rachel, Gar and Jason Todd train together to hone their hero abilities and work together as a team. They are joined by Hank Hall and Dawn Granger aka Hawk and Dove and Donna Troy aka Wonder Girl. Although these original Titans attempt to transition into a regular life, when old enemies resurface everyone must come together to take care of unfinished business. And as this family of old and new Titans – including Conner Kent and Rose Wilson – learn to co-exist, the arrival of Deathstroke brings to light the sins of the old Titans which threaten to tear this new Titans family apart once more.
The series stars Brenton Thwaites as Robin/Nightwing, Anna Diop as Starfire, Teagan Croft as Raven, and Ryan Potter as Beast Boy. Newcomers for its sophomore outing include Joshua Orpin and Esai Morales playing Superboy and Deathstroke, respectively, while Chella Man and Chelsea Zhang have also joined the cast as Deathstroke’s children Jericho and Ravager.
