Mark Hamill Hints He’s at San Diego Comic-Con, Disguised as Himself

Mark Hamill is apparently floating around the convention floor at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, wearing a mask. Luckily for fans hoping to meet Luke Skywalker, it’s apparently a mask of his own face.

Hamill took to Twitter and Instagram to tease that he’s at the convention center in San Diego this weekend, and like other celebrities before him, he’s disguising his identity in the sea of fans and cosplayers. In two posts, he goofed around about whether he was actually at the convention, before saying that he’ll have a different mask for each of the four days of the convention, and that con-goers should come find him.

The masks stem from four beloved Hamill roles. The first is of his face from “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” (and, uh, pretty much what he actually looks like); the second is of the Joker from “Batman: The Animated Series,” a voice-acting role Hamill has returned to again and again; the third is Luke Skywalker as he appeared in the original “Star Wars” in 1977; and the last is Skip, Hamill’s Yeti character from “The Regular Show.”

Hamill, who is an outspoken critic of Donald Trump on social media, used his Comic-Con tease as an opportunity to clown Trump for his most recent controversy. The media and politicians on both sides of the aisle took Trump to task for the press conference he gave Monday after meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, in which he seemed to take Putin’s word over U.S. intelligence agencies when Putin denied Russia’s interference and hacking in the 2016 presidential election.

On Tuesday, Trump tried to walk back the comments by claiming that in the original answer he gave to reporters, he said the word “would” when he meant the word “wouldn’t” — thereby stating that he was actually not siding with Putin. Trump got clowned by lots of people, including late-night hosts, for what they saw as a weak attempt to off-set criticism.

In his tweet, Hamill made a joke at Trump’s expense about his Comic-Con attendance. “Would I lie about being in disguise at ?” He wrote. “Sorry — I misspoke & said I ‘would’ instead of ‘wouldn’t.’ “
