You all know that I love Marvel movies! I mean how can you not love a movie that includes Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man! When the email from Disney/Marvel came in inviting me to the Avengers Infinity War world premiere red carpet in Los Angeles I was quite honestly speechless. I was in my garage with a couple of Geek Squad techs getting our new security sensors set up and I might have squeaked a bit and then stared at my phone in wonder. They looked at me worried that something bad had happened and asked if I was ok. All I could do was nod my head and take a deep breath and soak in the moment.
How do you even put into words that feeling of joy and wonder? I am so beyond excited to be heading to LA later this week for not only the Avengers Infinity War Premiere but also the opportunity to interview Marlee Matlin who is part of the cast of Quantico.
Avengers Infinity War Premiere – Los Angeles
I have had the amazing opportunity to walk a few red carpet events for Marvel including Iron Man 3 and Thor Ragnarok. I am pretty sure these events were preparing me for the Avengers Infinity War Premiere experience.
10 years of Marvel history and movies has built into this movie and I honestly can’t imagine what the red carpet is going to be like. I look at the cast of actresses and actors below that have been a part of the first ten years of Marvel Studios and I just can’t believe it. Many of us are holding our breaths that Chris Hemsworth, Chris Evans, Taika Waititi, Kevin Feige, Jeremy Renner, Gwyneth Paltrow, Robert Downey Jr, Stan Lee and more will also be at the premiere.
As I hear more about what we will be doing and who is going to be at the red carpet I will keep updating this post. Look for my Avengers Infinity War Review, Red Carpet Recap, and more next week when I get home from LA.
Oh, and can I just admit right now that every time I watch the official Avengers Infinity War trailer my heart starts racing and I want to bite my fingernails.
Marvel Studios STEM Education
One thing I love about Marvel Studios is their focus on STEM education. During the trip we will meet with Victoria Alonso, EVP of Visual Effects and Post-Production of Marvel Studios to learn more about the work Marvel is doing for STEM education.
Disney’s Grand Central Creative campus
We will be visiting Disney’s Grand Central Creative campus to learn and see all the amazing new toys, clothes, and merchandise for Avengers Infinity War! EEK! I have a feeling this is going to be amazing and I am going to want to bring it all home.
Quantico Cast Interviews
During my time in Los Angeles we are also getting the opportunity to interview Marlee Matlin and showrunner & Executive Producer Michael Seitzman from Quantico!
