Arrow’s Deadshot Joins Baltimore Comic-Con 2016

September 2-4, 2016 sees the return of the Baltimore Comic-Con to the Inner Harbor at the Baltimore Convention Center. The Baltimore Comic-Con is excited to announce our next guest, Arrow‘s Deadshot, Michael Rowe. Tickets for the Baltimore Comic-Con can be purchased here.
For decades, Floyd Lawton was a name that was only known to avid comic book fans. That’s no longer the case, as Floyd Lawton and his alter-ego Deadshot are now known to millions of people around the world, thanks to Michael Rowe‘s charismatic portrayal of the anti-heroic Suicide Squad leader on the hit CW series Arrow.
A native of St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, Michael’s first passion in life was music. But after ten years as songwriter and drummer for the metal/punk band Bucket Truck – who shared the stage with the likes of Green Day, Slayer, and D.O.A – Michael found himself at a crossroads. The breakup of his band sent Michael west to Vancouver where his brother Andrew was starting out as a filmmaker. Without any prior experience, Michael began producing and performing in short comedy films written and directed by his brother. Their 2012 short film Sleepy Stories became a film festival favorite, screening in Vancouver, Halifax, Whistler, and the Czech Republic.
Acting became a new passion for Michael and, after a year of honing his craft at Vancouver’s Actor’s Foundry, he broke through to mainstream success when he landed the recurring role of Deadshot in 2012. His background in comedy allowed him to bring a unique and darkly offbeat energy to his performance, which has led to his character becoming a fan favorite.
Michael continues to prioritize working on independent projects with his brother. He’s set to produce and act in Andrew’s debut feature film, which is currently in development.

“The CW has created an amazing universe, and Michael has helped to flesh it out even more than it already was,” said Marc Nathan, promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “We’re excited to have him with us in 2016, and fans of DC’s television universe will be too!”
