Hands down my favorite movie I’ve seen so far this year is Marvel’s AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR! I was lucky enough to screen the film at the World Premiere in California back in April. What an experience! After seeing it again and again at my local movie theater, I patiently waited for any hint of when the film would arrive on home entertainment. Luckily you and I don’t have to wait too long! You can take home a piece of cinematic history ($2 billion at the global box office in just 48 days!) when the film debuts digitally on July 31, 2018 and Blu-ray™ on August 14, 2018.
Get ready for a new Marvel era!! The relaunch of the Avengers with a new creative team starts with Avengers #1 out May 2! Marvel is taking a new direction this summer as Jason Aaron teams up with Ed McGuiness to present to fans what I’m hoping will be one of the best Avengers comics to date.
Be yourself. I can’t tell you how many times those simple two words have echoed in my head at work, and at home these past 7 days. Last week, while I was in California for #InfinityWarEvent, twenty-four fellow bloggers and myself walked into a theater at the Walt Disney Studios Lot for what we thought was going to be an interview with Victoria Alonos, Marvel Studios’ EVP of Physical Production & AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Executive Producer, to discuss her position at the Studios. We were wrong. What happened was one of the most inspirational chats, for lack of a better word, that was warm, honest, friendly, and that left us all walking away with important life lessons.
Now that AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR is finally in theatres, I want to share with you all the amazingly fun products and merchandise available in honor of the film! The day after the premiere, we had the chance to visit Disney’s Grand Central Creative campus to check out the product line. Walt Disney Publications was also very generous to gift us with an Avengers reusable tote, full of exciting AVENGERS products!
As I type this post, it is hard to describe the emotions I am feeling. Is surreal the right word for what I experienced less than 72 hours ago? We all have “bucket lists” or once-in-a-lifetime experiences we all dream and wish will happen to us. As a Marvel fan, I can say, without a doubt, that the past 3 days made my Top 5 Marvel “OMG THIS IS AWESOME” Moments list. If you’ve been following the hashtag #InfinityWarEvent, you’ll know that I had the humbling privilege to attend the Red… err, actually “Purple” Carpet World Premiere of Marvel Studios’ AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR!
