As you probably know already, I am a HUGE Marvel fan! One of the latest Marvel Cinematic Universe films is Thor: Ragnarok – and it is one of my favorites! I was lucky enough to walk to red carpet at the LA premiere and trust me, this movie is amazing. You probably already know this, but I interviewed some of the cast and filmmakers as well, so be sure to check those out! Thor: Ragnarok is finally coming to digital release TODAY (February 20th), and in order to celebrate, I have come up with a fun and delicious recipe for you. I brainstormed with Amy over at As The Bunny Hops for this one while we were discussing our #CountdownToInfinityWar fun.
The highly anticipated latest film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Black Panther, is finally almost out in theaters! On February 16th, travel to Wakanda as you get to know T’Challa, the King of Wakanda. Personally, I enjoy his story lines in Marvel comics, so I am thrilled to see where this movie takes us. I am totally hoping for a lot of set up for Avengers: Infinity War. To help celebrate Black Panther’s release, The Hopping Bloggers have come together to bring our readers a Black Panther prize pack worth $150 that everyone will want to win!
If you haven’t figured out that I am a giant (pun intended) Marvel fan. Ant-Man is one of my favorite comic book characters, especially the Scott Lang version. I think that Paul Rudd plays him perfectly, so I have been really excited to see what Ant-Man and The Wasp has in store for us! It feels like forever that we have known about this film, but we haven’t seen much of anything – UNTIL THIS MORNING. The Ant-Man and The Wasp trailer finally dropped, and it was well worth the wait!
Recently I binge watched the first 4 seasons of Agents of SHIELD. Unfortunately I caught up to season 5 a little too late and now I have to wait for the first 3 episodes to resurface. Likely on Netflix once the whole season is over and that makes me very sad. Once I really got in to it, this easily became my favorite current drama. It is totally my own fault that I have to wait to see what happens to my favorite agents now. Anyways, these were my thoughts as I finished up season 4.
In case you have been living under a rock, let me tell you that I am a bit of a Marvel fan. I love the comic books as well as the movies. I also have an insane amount of Marvel collectibles. As you might already know, the Guardians of the Galaxy are one of my all time favorites (I mean, hello, I have a full tattoo sleeve featuring them). Lately, they have been tossed around the comic book universe. What I mean by that is there was a short run by Brian Bendis, then another by Garry Duggan, which abruptly went from All New Guardians of the Galaxy #12 to Guardians of the Galaxy Infinity Quest #146 (still written by Garry Duggan) seemingly over night. Which is not entirely a bad thing, however, because man, is it good.
As I am sure you know, I am a big fan of movies. It is hard with young kids, but my husband and I try to go to the movies at least once a month. Of course, for most Disney films, we can take them along with us. 2018 is going to be one incredible year – for the entire Smith family. From Marvel films that I could have dreamed of 10 years ago, to re-imaginings and sequels of a couple of my favorite films – it is going to have it all.
This may come as a huge shock to you, but I am a bit of a Marvel fan. All kidding aside though, the countdown is ON for Avengers: Infinity War and I am over the moon excited about it. I am not ready for some of my favorite characters to die, or willing to admit it will happen, but let’s just say my purse will be full of tissues when I hit the theaters on May 4, 2018. In order to prepare ourselves, I teamed up with my girl Amy from As The Bunny Hops. Together, we created a viewing schedule for all the Marvel Cinematic Universe films – one a week until Infinity War hits theaters. We even did all the hard work and found out where you can watch them.
I have been a collector of Funko Pops for a while now. It all started when I got one as a gift – and now I cannot stop. They are so cute and the perfect way to feed all of my different fandoms. From The Walking Dead, to Game of Thrones, to Marvel and Star Wars – there are so many to choose from. Personally, I have always had a problem with unboxing them. I try. And a select few would be opened. Maybe it is the collector in me, but I just couldn’t bring myself to open them up – until now.
Black Panther is hitting theaters in February 2018 and is highly anticipated by Marvel fans everywhere. I am certainly one of those fans who is dying to see what Marvel does with this film. Admittedly, I am sad knowing that Storm won’t be in it – but thanks to that exciting deal being worked out by Disney and Fox, we might see her in the future! Wakanda is one of my favorite places in the Marvel Comics world, so seeing it become a part of the MCU is pretty awesome. If you don’t normally read the comics, but want a good background on the man himself, Black Panther, before heading to theaters in February, here are 5 books I think you should pick up.
As I am sure you know by now, I am a HUGE Marvel fan. I am also a mom of two little girls. I know I am not the only one out there.
