Phoenix Carnevale delivers an impressive one-two punch: she can spar like a real-life Super Hero AND she’s a massive Marvel fan. Guest co-host Jamie Frevele (Editor, marvel.com) has a deep conversation with Phoenix about her philosophy as a trainer, actor, and fight commentator. A lifelong comic book reader, Phoenix shares how characters like Daredevil, Wolverine, and Storm have inspired her both personally and professionally.
Avengers Assemble!…for fifth period. In the high-spirited middle-grade novel Avengers Assembly, Marvel’s youngest characters find themselves in an after-school program for super heroes, where they must fend off every threat from super villains to peer pressure. Guest host and Marvel.com editor Christine Dinh caught up with author Preeti Chhibber to discuss what it was like to write Miles Morales, Kamala Khan, and Doreen Green, as well as what it would be like to have Quicksilver as your vice principal and Ant-Man as your teacher.
What does it take to be an Avenger? Answer: mocap suits, very heavy helmet-cameras, and lots of talent. Angélique caught up with some of the actors behind earth’s mightiest heroes in Marvel’s Avengers video game, including Laura Bailey (Black Widow), Sandra Saad (Ms. Marvel), and Jolene Andersen (Monica Rappaccini). With as much chemistry in real-life as in the game, the group talked about everything from the unique performance capture process to favorite stories from the set!
We are celebrating the arrival of Marvel’s Avengers! Ellie and Angélique share what they're most looking forward to about the game. Then, Ellie chats with three people who worked on the game’s development: Hannah MacLeod (Narrative Designer), Rose Hunt (Senior Producer), and Magali Stretton (Senior Game Designer).
She-Hulk is one of Marvel’s strongest, smartest, and funniest characters, so Ellie called up She-Hulk expert Lorraine Cink, one of Marvel’s strongest, smartest, and funniest real-life women. Lorraine enlightens Ellie about She-Hulk’s storied history with the Fantastic Four, Avengers, and as a headliner of her own books.
Author Sam Maggs is, much like the title character of her book The Unstoppable Wasp: Built On Hope, unstoppable. A Star Wars geek with a master’s degree and a passion for women in STEM, Maggs has written characters from Spider-Man to Captain Marvel and, today, she tells Ellie what it was like to get acquainted with the young hero Nadia Van Dyne!
Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is full of surprises, but the latest episode is an especially big moment for Elizabeth Henstridge, who plays Agent Jemma Simmons: it’s her directorial debut!
Characters like Misty Knight and Captain Marvel have an additional, perhaps under-appreciated super power in the iconography of their hair.
Judy and Sana spoke to writers Vita Ayala, Tini Howard, and Leah Williams about everything from breakthrough moments in their careers to Queer representation in comics. Now joined by Ellie, the hosts continue to celebrate LGBTQ+ pride by listening back to this personality-packed interview.
In 2018, Judy spoke to video game journalists Andrea Rene, Terri Schwartz, and Allegra Frank about their collective experiences in the world of gaming. Today, Andrea joins Judy for a follow-up conversation about how the video game industry has changed since then, including how it has evolved to adapt to the challenges of the COVID-19 crisis.
