Win Tickets to See Teen Titans GO to the Movies & More! | #TeenTitansGOMovie

My entire family loves the show Teen Titans GO! My husband and I are a tad bit into superheroes, in case you never figured that out, so of course we are raising our girls that way too. This show is something that all four of us can enjoy. We laugh at the silly potty humor and enjoy the mischief the teens get into. My youngest LOVES Starfire and my oldest is a big fan of Raven. When we found out there was going to be a Teen Titans movie, we all freaked out. You know we plan to be there opening weekend! And I want one of my lucky readers to be able to go to theaters to see it too – plus win some other great goodies!

How Ant-Man And The Wasp Built Me Up Only To Break Me Down Again (SPOILERS!) | #AntManAndTheWasp

WARNING: THIS ARTICLE IS FILLED WITH SPOILERS FROM ANT-MAN AND THE WASP! If you have not seen it and do not want any spoilers, please come back after you have seen the movie. Now that Ant-Man and The Wasp has been out for a week, let’s discuss it. This movie was brilliant, if you ask me. Filled with humor, exactly what I would want in an Ant-Man movie. But honestly, the girls take center stage in this one and kick some serious butt. And then, well, read on to see how Marvel built me back up after Infinity War with much needed humor, only to rip out a tiny piece of my soul during the mid-credit scene.

Interview: Michael Douglas Couldn’t Wait To See Evangeline As The Wasp & More | #AntManAndTheWaspEvent

When we got our interview list of the Ant-Man and The Wasp press event, I was over the moon to see Michael Douglas on it. I love him as an actor anyways, but his performance as Hank Pym in the first Ant-Man was phenomenal. In the comics, Hank is one of my favorite heroes. Especially when he is dating Tigra but that is a whole other story that I don’t think we will ever see in the MCU. Then when I saw him in Ant-Man and The Wasp, well, he blew me away. Michael was all I could have expected and more in the interview room as well. Humble, super nice, and a genuine joy to talk with.

Paul Rudd Discusses Family, Friends, & Humor in this Ant-Man and The Wasp Interview | #AntManAndTheWaspEvent #AntManAndTheWasp

If you ask me, Paul Rudd is one of the funniest human beings on the face of the Earth. From the first moment I saw him in Clueless, I fell for him. I love a guy with humor, and he has it. Because I thought of him as such a comedian, it was hard for me to place him as Scott Lang when I first heard he would play him. I thought to myself this is going to either be really bad or really good – well Ant-Man is one of my top favorite Marvel movies, so I would say it was a success. Paul Rudd is the perfect Scott Lang, and so I was really excited to see him reprise the role in Ant-Man and The Wasp – and he did so perfectly (as a sidekick to The Wasp if you ask me). While in LA for the #AntManAndTheWaspEvent, I got to sit down with Paul Rudd and talk all about his role as Ant-Man. We all clapped when he walked in and he joined right in with us! It was a great start to one of my favorite interviews ever!

10 Things I Learned About John Ratzenberger at Niagara Falls Comic Con | #Pixar #NFCC

While at Niagara Falls Comic Con this year, I was able to attend a panel with the one and only John Ratzenberger! Not did he play Cliff, one of my favorite characters on Cheers, he also voices many characters for Disney/Pixar. If you know anything about me, you know how much I love Disney and Pixar films, so this was a great experience. At the panel, I learned so much from him and about him.

Incredibles fans have been waiting years (14 to be exact!) for Incredibles 2 to come out – and that time is finally here!

5 Comic Books You Should Read Before Seeing Ant-Man and The Wasp | #AntManandtheWasp

Ant-Man and the Wasp hits theaters everywhere July 6th and I am BEYOND excited! I have always been a fan of Scott Lang in the comic books (in fact, I like him more than Hank Pym but SHHHHH! Don’t tell anyone!). If you are in to comic books (or even if you aren’t), here are some that I think are important to read before seeing this movie. Since there are two Ant-Mans in the comics, these will help you get to know Scott – and in one case Hank and Janet!

Talking Marvel with Comic Book Writer Ann Nocenti | EP of Marvel Universe of Super Heroes Exhibit at #MoPOP

When I first learned about the Marvel Universe of Super Heroes exhibit at the Museum of Pop Culture, I knew it was something I was going to have to check out. I researched for a bit and decided that my family and I would be taking a trip out to WA this summer to check it out. As huge comic book fans, how could we not?! The fact that Ann Nocenti is the Executive Producer? That is the icing on the cake. Ann has created some of my most favorite comic book character like Mojo, Longshot, and Typhoid Mary. She also wrote an amazing run of Daredevil. Basically, she is a super talented comic book writer, creator, and editor – and I got the chance to talk with her one on one.
