Move Over Star-Lord, Andrew’s Awesome Mix Tape Takes Center Stage #GoTGVol2

#GotGVol2 Awesome Mix

Music was always a big part of my childhood. Back in the Stone Ages, we played things called “audio cassettes” that we’d put in “tape players” to hear our songs. I know, I know. That sounds crazy.

When I heard they were making Guardians of the Galaxy Legos, my head nearly exploded. Don’t worry, it didn’t. My noggin’s still safe inside my funny-shaped skull. So when Lego told me they were sending me a Guardians set, I cranked up …

Kevin Feige Marvel Studios #CaptainAmericaEvent

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 …
