I'm psyched to see "The Wolverine" and the first "Thor" wasn't bad, so I'm looking forward to that too. Chris Hemsworth was my choice for sexiest superhero until the new Superman "Man of Steel" Henry Cavill came bursting onto the screen last night! Now he's got my vote. I've always preferred dark haired guys anyway, but when Hemsworth came on the scene, he toppled Robert Downey, Jr who is now #3. Hugh Jackman lost a tinge of sexiness for me after doing Broadway, it's been a while since he was my #1, alas Wolverine has now fallen to 4th place. With Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk) taking up the rear as 5th sexiest superhero. And I know, it's a faux pas to mix DC Comic characters with Marvel characters, but I did it anyway :)
Time for a little content interlude! This one by Charlie Singer.
Going to one of the Disney theme parks in the near future might mean that you'll get to see more attractions that the younger male audience can relate to. As most have already noticed, our favorite comic book characters are coming back to life on the big screen, thanks to the most recent Marvel and Disney partnership. You prep the kids and catch up on the previous installments of these comic book movies at the convenience of your own home through GetDirectTV.org, and then visit your local theater with the family to enjoy some of these up and coming comic book films that are guaranteed to be some of the hottest features when they hit the big screen:
'Iron Man 3'
"Iron Man 3" opened on May 3 and has already grossed more than $768.2 million worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo. While the movie has been out for a couple of months, it's definitely a must see.
Trailers for "The Wolverine" are generating a lot of positive buzz, and MTV News praised the action scenes involving the Silver Samurai in the latest trailer, declaring that he steals every scene where he appears onscreen.
'Thor: The Dark World'
IGN.com reports that this installment is looking "a lot bigger" than the first movie.
'Captain America: The Winter Soldier'
So what does this all mean for the young boys that feel like they're surrounded by Disney princess characters when they visit one of the Disney theme parks? Well can you imagine the hype Disney fans will get when they see Iron Man in his red and gold lit-up suit or Thor with his cape and huge hammer walking around in costume? Disney's hottest characters aren't all about princesses and with Marvel potentially becoming a new attraction for Disney, younger boys (and girls) can now go home with smiles from ear to ear and say they met their favorite action-superhero and have the memories to prove it.
