Over the past few years, Jada Toys has really been upping their game - slowly gaining space in the diecast aisle with some highly-detailed toy vehicles that are spread across a variety of licenses. In fact, the diecast category is a rare space in which you can find multiple licensees producing toys based on a shared property, with each company able to put their own spin on things. Marvel is a unique challenge in that the majority of heroes don't have (or need) a vehicle, and for the ones that do, it's generally Mattel's Hot Wheels line that brings them to life in the 1:64-scale. Still, there's a lot of room for creativity and other scales, and that's where Jada has come in, adding a few Marvel "inspired" vehicles to their 1:24-scale Hollywood Rides collection. Aimed at kids and collectors ages 8 and up (aside from Deadpool, who bears a 14+ mark), this new assortment presents some beautifully-designed, expertly-crafted vehicles that will appeal to a wide range of fans spanning comics and car culture. Plus, each ride comes with a diecast figure packed-in.

Ten years. Eighteen movies. Never before in the history of filmed entertainment has there been such a complex, interconnected "cinematic universe' that carries so many stories across so many planes. Through individual franchises and multi-hero team-ups, there is no argument that Marvel Studios has created the model that many studios wish to emulate, though few, if any, will ever manage to find the type of success that Marvel has. From 2008's Iron Man to 2018's Black Panther, everything has been leading to this - the third Avengers film and a piece that serves to re-shape the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) by laying the groundwork that will close the books on the first decade of storytelling by firmly throwing open a door - or portal - to what may come next. Avengers: Infinity War is the biggest superhero film in history, the MCU's nineteenth film landing in the unique spot of being a new hub from which many spokes will soon spawn. When asked to provide a "two-word review" shortly after leaving the film's World Premiere in Los Angeles, my response was "still absorbing."

If I were to spin back the clock a few decades and point my lens to a specific neighborhood and a specific house somewhere in the south suburbs of Chicago, I would be able to see a little boy that was dreaming of bigger things. Sometimes that child would be tuned into WFLD-TV Channel 32, watching Reb Brown and Nicholas Hammond as Captain America and Spider-Man in re-runs on the UHF band. During those shows there might even be a commercial for the incredible stories being told in the pages of Marvel Comics.  It was a simpler time, and one where no one could've ever predicted how prevalent those characters would one day be around the world. Now, as the 19th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is about to be released, that little boy is now a man - and one invited to walk the red carpet at the World Premiere of Marvel Studios' Avengers: Infinity War! As a guest of The Walt Disney Company and Marvel, I will be back in Los Angeles as part of a group of 25 writers, bloggers and online personalities as we experience the debut of the biggest superhero film in history as part of the #InfinityWarEvent - April 22-24, 2018! What's unique about this it that the World Premiere will mark the first time that the cast as seen the film... and like last year when the cast assembled at the D23 Expo in Anaheim to share in watching the first footage from the film together, somehow this kid from Illinois will be there with them.
