A Special #MarvelEvent: Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Revealed


Yesterday, Marvel held a special event at the El Capitan theater in Hollywood, where Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige revealed the films that will make up Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.  This was very exciting news, ever since I was a little girl I've been a Marvel fan.  In fact, my dad collected comics (still does!) and it was something of an interest we shared together.  Since Marvel began turning many of their comics into movies, we make it a point to see the films together when they hit theaters.  Seeing the list of whats to come in the Marvel Universe will not only bring excitement but also more shared memories!
