Next Thursday, this little blogger will be on her way to L.A. to attend a media event for AVENGERS: Age of Ultron and Disneynature’s Monkey Kingdom, and one of my favorite shows, Marvels’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I get to experience this with 24 other awesome bloggers, who I can’t wait to meet and hug. I’m so excited!
I’m a big comic book nerd, thanks to my dear Dad, and an even bigger Disney nerd, thanks to both of my parents, so I am pretty much freaking out about being able to attend this event. Not only will we be able to see advanced screenings of Avengers: Age of Ultron and Monkey Kingdom, but we get to visit the set of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Did I mention we get in interview the director, producer, and a few of the actors in Avengers: Age of Ultron? I didn’t?! Check out the line up:
- Joss Whedon, director (oh may Gawd…shiny!)
- Kevin Feige, producer and Marvel president (excuse me?!)
- Chris Evans, THE Captain America
- Chris Hemsworth, Thor (ummm hot!)
- Mark Ruffalo, The Hulk (one of my favorite actors)
- Jeremy Renner, Hawkeye (he was Bourne to play this role. See what I did there?)
- Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Quicksilver (loved him in Savages)
- Elizabeth Olsen, Scarlet Witch (gorgeous woman and great actress in Kill Your Darlings)
- Paul Bettany, The Vision (he’s also the voice of J.A.R.V.I.S.!)
- Cobie Smulders, Agent Maria Hill (I’m a BIG How I Met Your Mother fan. Can’t wait to meet her!)
- James Spader, voice of Ultron (seriously. Mannequin, Pretty In Pink, Secretary, The Black List. Ah!)
And I must give an extra special mention to the one lady I am STOKED to interview because I have a big girl crush on her.

Yes, we get to interview Scarlett Johansson, the Black Widow. Black Widow is one of my favorite comic book characters of all time, and I’ve been so impressed with how well Scarlett plays this complex role. And yes, I’m dying to ask her if she’s ready to star in her own Black Widow movie. Because, we need one!
Oh, the fun won’t end there. Not only will we get to see the two movies, visit the set of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., and interview all of those awesome people, we get to visit the L.A. Zoo too! We’ll be immersed in monkeys, gorillas, and more.
Be sure to follow all of the fun on social media. We’ll be posting real time updates under the hashtags. #AvengersEvent #MonkeyKingdom #AgentsofSHIELD #LAZoo and #ABCTVEvent. Yes, all of them! Be sure to check out my Twitter and Instagram accounts to see what we’ll be doing each day. It’s going to be a blast!

While I have been invited to participate in this Disney Motion Pictures media event, all opinions and fangirl moments are my own.
