On October 9 – 11 I attended a Disney Press Event for Thor: Ragnarok. My hotel and airfare and meals were taken care of while I was in L.A. Opinions and observations as well as recaps and such are all my own. This post will also contain some affiliate links to Amazon.com.
Prior to going on this trip the bloggers received a list of people who we were going to interview. We had a surprise interview and that was with the President of Marvel Studios, Kevin Feige. I was fortunate enough in the past to be part of a group interview with Kevin for Avengers, Age of Ultron back in 2015. This was an excellent interview and I was even able to ask a couple of questions that I wanted answered. Being the comic book geeky guy on the trip I had to ask a comic book question. Then I thought of all the great female characters in the comics and also in the movies. I had to ask about that as well, but we’ll get to that.
Early on in the interview someone asked Kevin if we would see the Avengers: Infinity War trailer anytime soon. This was a teaser trailer that was shown at D23 and there have been a select few that were there and got to see this amazing teaser. So, when asked when we would all see that trailer Kevin’s response was “Someday, Someday.” I personally hope that “someday” means we will see it around the time of Thor: Ragnarok hitting the theater. The tone of this interview was a very happy and exciting one. We had just come off a very successful screening the night before. This movie is incredible and I cannot wait for everyone to see it. You can read all about what I thought of it in my review of Thor: Ragnarok.
Kevin came in wearing his signature ball cap and immediately asked us if we liked the movie. The response was an overwhelming yes. The movie was amazing, so cool and so different. Kevin was asked what he thought of having such a strong movie year with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 and Thor: Ragnarok being released and this year being an Outer Space year. Kevin also pointed out that this year we also had Spider-Man: Homecoming which was grounded in high school on Earth in between the two cosmic movies. Kevin went on to say, “It’s pretty cool and it indicates what I’ve always wanted people to understand that just because something’s based on a comic doesn’t mean they’re all the same. Doesn’t mean they all inhabit the same exact tonal world. I always knew and was hoping would be pretty exciting.“
