A Comic Book World

My teenage years included comic books, cartoons, video games, basketball, and a lot of music. Over the past decade or so, I've been happy with film companies attempting comic book movies. It is such a treat to witness characters and their powers on the big screen. I've been recently getting back into comic books and attended my first Comic-Con last year in Baltimore. I've also started following one series in particular; Avengers Arena is really entertaining.

Speaking of The Avengers, I am really excited with any and all future projects that Marvel is currently working on or planning. Let me begin with Iron Man. I do not know if there is a better person suited to play the "man in a tin can" than Robert Downey, Jr. His ability to express sarcasm, ego, and the desire to be a hero is translated perfectly. Iron Man 3 is another successful flick in the trio and there was one preview in particular that further pulled me into wanting to see it.

Now, there is another preview that has me extremely excited for a TV series that will be coming out this fall.

I cannot wait to see Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. It looks like a fantastic opportunity to expand the Marvel universe by introducing new characters and potentially bringing big screen characters to the little screen. The possibilities seem endless and that is part of the reason why I'm looking forward to it. I don't know what new characters will be added to the movie or TV world, but I know I'll be happy with the fact that it's happening. Comic books provide so much entertainment for so many and it's nice to know that I can still look forward to something that I used to look forward to when I was twenty years younger.
