MARVEL STUDIOS UNVEILS PHASE 3 OF MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE




I received a press release in my e-mail that was kind of exciting, so I'm going to share it. :)  We're huge fans of Marvel movies here, so I'm really happy to see the line up for what's coming up in the next few years.  Everyone in the house likes Marvel films, but truth be told, I think I like them the most. I'm still laughing at the Hulk/Thor scene from the last Avengers movie...and Robert Downey, Jr. makes such a great Iron Man. My husband used to always rave about his work, but it wasn't until he was in Iron Man that I took a big notice. I never disliked him, but now he's a fave. Anyway, here is the info. that was in my e-mail. Hope you get as excited about it as I did!

  25. Saw @Theresa Mahoney's comment above, is Wonder Woman a Marvel movie? I do want to see Wonder Woman! Iron Man is usually only of interest for the villain as I'm not the biggest Robert Downey fan.....

  40. Hubs is a member insider and got his press release the other day. I am SUPER excited for Thor. And also willing to see Dr Strange since Benedict Cumberbatcht is going to be playing him. Hubs has been a Captain America fan since he was a toddler. Our house is full of that stuff. I bought tickets earlier this year for the live event - next year. Knowing it was going to sell out. Excited for that, too.
