TWIG episode 99: The Avengers


“And there came a day, a day unlike any other, when Earth’s mightiest heroes and heroines found themselves united against a common threat. On that day, the Avengers were born—to fight the foes no single super hero could withstand! Through the years, their roster has prospered, changing many times, but their glory has never been denied! Heed the call, then—for now, the Avengers Assemble!”

Birdman, Mike and Laura talk about Marvel’s Avengers franchise and cover the movie’s successful film universe and it’s television counterparts and the comic books and finally the merchandise from Earth’s mightiest heroes. The trio discuss what makes the Marvel universe work so well on film and an even share a theory on how the Vision could already be in the movies and so much more in this episode of this week in geek!
