Days ago, we notified everyone on our Facebook page about the sudden cancellation of MCU alum, Hayley Atwell. The official Facebook page of ComicCon Asia (CCA) cited “perceived political unrest in the country” as her primary reason for cancelling her supposed appearance (image below).
Netizens were quick to react to the said matter and confronted the actress on her official Instagram page. Atwell replied to her fans, refuting the statement posted by the event organizer, stating that CCA’s statement was “not accurate” and “not her words.”
Atwell then used the platform and posted a photo of a handwritten letter, apologizing to her Filipino fans for her absence in Manila. In the letter, she cited changes to her work schedule as the primary reason for missing out CCA. She ends the letter with a hopeful notion of visiting the Philippines next time.
We have reached out to CCA for a statement regarding the matter.
ComicCon Asia happens this weekend, March 24-25, 2018, at the SMX Convention Center, SM Mall of Asia in Manila, Philippines.
