The 2022 New York Comic Con gave every Back To The Future fan a moment to remember. One of cinema’s most iconic duos Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd had a reunion at the event, almost 37 years after the release of one of the greatest sci-fi comedies of our generation. The reunion was made even special with the knowledge that the beloved movie is soon going to be turned into a musical and will be showcased on Broadway.

Their iconic roles as Marty McFly and ‘Doc’ Emmette Brown in the 1985 hit, and its two sequels, have a place in every movie lover’s heart. During the comic con, the duo even got on a panel to talk about their film and revisited their memories of bing on set together.
The panel started off with the actors recalling when, after almost more than a month of filming, Fox was called in to replace Eric Stoltz, who was initially supposed to play the role of McFly. “The announcement, at one o’clock in the morning after we were shooting for six weeks, was that the actor playing Marty would no longer be playing Marty, and that tomorrow, we should start shooting with Michael. I felt that I barely made it through the first six weeks and now I was gonna have to do it again?!” Lloyd recalled.
Fox was initially apprehensive about signing the movie since he was already filming Family Ties at that time, especially since his mother was worried that he’d not be able to cope with the work. But, thankfully, the actor decided to take the plunge, which eventually worked out for him and his co-star Lloyd.
The Addams Family actor went on to share, “The chemistry was there from the first scene we had, it was alive, and it remained that way for three movies. It hasn’t gone away, by the way.” Fans around the world were ecstatic over the reunion and flooded social media with their love for the actors and the iconic film that played such a huge role in everyones childhoods. Before ending the panel, in true Doc Brown style, Lloyd delivered his iconic dialogue from Back To The Future Part III, “Your future is what you make of it, so make it a good one!”
