I’ve been a Marvel fan for several years. The Marvel Cinematic Universe fascinates me, and I feel myself getting pulled deeper into the MCU with every new Marvel production I see.

Exclusive: Why Scott Derrickson Wanted to Make Marvel’s DOCTOR STRANGE #DoctorStrangeEvent

disney mom blogger scott derrickson interview

A few years ago I was given an assignment that took my pop culture interests to a new level. I was told that I had to watch Iron Man, Iron Man 2, Captain America and The Avengers in preparation for the Iron Man 3 premiere.

I was so hooked after those three films that I immediately watched Thor and The Avengers. I surprised myself and most people who knew me when I became a huge Marvel fan!

Now I eagerly await the release of every new Marvel, and I’ve binge-watched every Marvel series on Netflix. The Marvel Cinematic Universe fascinates me, and I feel like a section of my brain is devoted to connecting the dots between everything I see on screen.
