Move Over, Avengers, There’s a New ‘Best Superhero Film’ and it’s Called Captain America: The Winter Soldier #CaptainAmericaEvent

Last month I ventured on the trip of a lifetime. Thanks to this here little daddy blog, I was invited by Disney to go on a blogging expedition full of insane awesomeness. In one short trip, I screened the new Muppets Most Wanted movie, as well as attended the movie's Red Carpet Premiere at the El Capitan Theatre, followed by the celebrity-filled after party. I interviewed the producer, songwriter and even Kermit & Miss Piggy themselves! I screened other Disney films including The Pirate Fairy and Bears, in addition to interviewing the amazing talent behind them both. Those were all fantastic (especially meeting Kermit in person!), but I'm a lifelong Captain America ...

Scarlett Johansson on Love, the Winter Soldier and a Black Widow Movie #CaptainAmericaEvent

  Beautiful. Adorable. Completely and utterly smitten. Yep, that's exactly how Scarlett Johansson must've felt when the Black Widow actress sat down with me for an interview at the Beverly Hilton Hotel a few weeks ago. I'll admit the popular actress is pretty stunning in her own right. In person, however, I was truly impressed to see just how "normal" and completely down to Earth this beauty is. Not a hint of ego or attitude to be found anywhere. Now, I was under the impression that it'd be just myself and Scarlett chatting the night away over dinner at some L.A. hotspot. But apparently I missed a memo somewhere. There was no dinner ...

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige Talks Continuity, Winter Soldier and Chances of a Spider-Man Crossover #CaptainAmericaEvent

Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige Before Marvel Studios came along, fanboys and fangirls everywhere had to get their big Screen Hollywood Fix one film at a time. Sure, lots of mutants popped up in all the X-Men films, the Silver Surfer showed up in Fantastic Four 2, and Spider-Man fought a sinister set of baddies in his film trilogy. But the universes never crossed streams. Then along came Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige in 2007. Fans were soon exposed to a pair of feature films starring the Incredible Hulk and Iron Man, and a cohesive Marvel Film Universe was born. It was minor at first (a cameo by Robert Downy Jr. ...

My Interview with Captain America Himself, Mr. Chris Evans #CaptainAmericaEvent

Ever since I was a kid, Captain America has always been my favorite superhero. Sure I loved all the Marvel characters, but there was just something about Cap and his "never say die" attitude that resonated with me. Over the years, I built up quite the Captain America collection (action figures, comic books, statues, a custom-made fiberglass shield, original art, wedding ice sculpture, etc.) and even had the pleasure of interviewing a number of different Marvel writers and artists who worked on the comic series. So when I had the opportunity to finally meet the Star-Spangled Avenger himself, in person, I nearly... well.. I almost passed out. Yes, I'm a geek. I'm ...
