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. So if you have a Marvel Mom in your life, here are 10 things that she needs in her life. Talk about amazing gift ideas – you are sure to make her jump up and down with happiness if you pick her up any of these MARVELous items.
Marvel fans have been waiting patiently for the Avengers: Infinity War trailer to drop and the day has FINALLY come! Hold on to your hats, because it will blow you away! Personally, I have been counting the seconds until this moment would happen. Jumping every time I saw #InfinityWar trending, wondering if I missed it. Well, it is FINALLY here!
You might not recognize Rachel House from many films – unless you watched Hunt for the Wilderpeople like I suggested. But I guarantee you would remember her voice. She voiced Gramma Tala in Moana, and now she is in Thor: Ragnarok. Her character, Topaz, is one of the best characters in the film if you ask me. She is hilarious! I honestly don’t know how she kept a straight face while filming – but we did ask her about it in this exclusive interview!
Thor: Ragnarok hits theaters today and what better way to celebrate than to start shopping for Thor collectibles! To go along with this movie release, there are some pretty amazing products, and I want to tell you all about them. They are perfect for Marvel fans of all ages. Trust me, I want all of them!
As you likely know already, I have done a fair amount of celebrity interviews in the last few years. My recent one with Karl Urban sticks out in my mind, however, because he is the nicest guy in the world. Seriously. To paint you a picture – the interview room was set up with three rows of chairs, filled with 25 bloggers. When he walked into the room, he proceeded to walk up and down each row, shaking all of our hands – and looking us in the eyes as he said hi. I was blown away! I was already really looking forward to this interview, but that is the exact moment I knew it was going to be great.
