For years, I might cowl tales on the MCU hoping that someday, I might be sitting throughout from the forged and interviewing them. In February 2019, I obtained the CALL. A press junket for Captain Marvel in Singapore.
It was simply one other day again in 2012 once I got here throughout the trailer of The Avengers. With no prior information about Marvel Comics and the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), I entered the theatre display screen and hours later, a fan was born! Finally, after a couple of years, I binge-watched all the flicks inside every week after which, a real fangirl was born! You possibly can spot an MCU fan from a mile away – cries like a child when the opening credit start, waits patiently for the end-credits and for all of the Indian followers, performs a sport of mentioning the Indian crew members within the end-credits (You are welcome!)
Name it luck or plain future that I ended up being an Leisure journalist who occurred to like Hollywood simply as a lot as she breathed Bollywood. For years, I might cowl tales on the MCU hoping that someday, I might be sitting throughout from the forged and interviewing them. In February 2019, I obtained the CALL. A press junket for Captain Marvel in Singapore. An opportunity to not solely interview Carol Danvers herself, Brie Larson, I might even be sitting face-to-face with Samuel L. Jackson. After an outstanding press convention, it was time for the interviews and the nerves have been ticking. First up, I needed to take care of the massive gun – Nick Fury. As I spoke to the cameraman to regulate the lens as a result of I’m quick, Samuel checked out me and acknowledged, “No, you aren’t.” That was all of the validation I wanted from the quick jokes! The way in which he spoke about Stan publish his dying remains to be caught in my fan-brain. When the time for Brie’s interview got here, she fondly spoke about her time in India and the way a lot she liked it there. With each these actors, immediately I felt a stage of consolation which was not what I had anticipated. I’ll not have gotten the selfie, however my dream of interviewing them got here true.
Then in April got here the subsequent name, a video interview with Mr. Joe Russo, one half of the director duo of Avengers: Endgame, The Russo Brothers (with Anthony Russo). And through which nation? INDIA! With out giving freely spoilers, it was the fervour with which Joe spoke in regards to the MCU that obtained to me. Additionally, on the finish of the interview, he acknowledged, “Good questions.” I used to be bought.

Life went on and the anticipate Endgame started. The decision was at midnight. It was occurring! Avengers: Endgame child! A press junket in Seoul, South Korea with Brie Larson, Jeremy Renner, Kevin Feige and The Russo Brothers in attendance. Oh! Did I neglect to say? ROBERT DOWNEY JR.?! So with the thoughts of an leisure journalist however a coronary heart of an MCU fangirl I entered Seoul with huge desires.
Sitting throughout an OG 6 Avenger was on my wishlist. And it got here true. Sitting throughout from me was Hawkeye himself, Mr. Jeremy Renner. Internally, I had one factor in thoughts – see the OG 6 matching tattoo. He spoke with a smile on his face remembering the day the forged obtained the tattoo and the way their decade-long friendship meant the world to him. The fangirl in me was internally screaming with pleasure as a result of who would have thought, years later this could occur!
The spotlight of the journey for me was once I was ready for Jeremy’s interview and Brie Larson handed me by. A way of recollection swept throughout her face and she or he got here my manner saying, “Hello! How are you doing?” My life was made.
It solely obtained higher once I actually obtained to breathe the identical air as Iron Man. Is there something this man can’t do? From his epic entrance to his legendary quips, this man is aware of the best way to win hearts and work a crowd. Whether or not it’s the press convention or the mega fan occasion, to see him was a deal with in itself.
The fan occasion in Seoul, which happened at an indoor stadium Jangchung Enviornment, hosted 4000 followers, together with myself. A second was created the place all of the followers with the Avengers sign-glowsticks thanked The Avengers workforce. It not solely had Brie in tears, however a shock re-entrance by Mr. Downey noticed the actor having an amazing second. Did I cry? I’ll neither affirm nor deny that! The traces have been blurred between an leisure journalist and an MCU fangirl that day.
As I conclude, on the fan occasion, in succession, the four Avengers trailers have been proven. Seeing the primary Avengers trailer and watching Iron Man being saved by The Hulk, I had the identical goosebumps-feeling I felt, again in 2012. Oh, how life comes full circle, certainly! There has by no means been a franchise just like the MCU with a profitable decade-long journey curating 21 bigger than life movies, with the fruits being Endgame. They’ve modified the panorama of storytelling and created a universe, which just about appears like actuality. This is to the superheroes.
