I’m always very honored to be a part of the Disney / Marvel media team. Of course I would never be able to do any of this if it weren’t for my amazing fans. So always, the thanks also goes to you.
Here’s the skinny on what I’ll be doing while in L.A.
Doctor Strange Event
Screening Doctor Strange
Opens November 4th 2016
Myself and 24 other bloggers will be screening Marvel’s DOCTOR STRANGE which opens in theatres on November 4, 2016. I’ll also be going to a media junket to interview Benedict Cumberbatch, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Tilda Swinton and Director Mads Mikkelsen.
From Marvel Studios comes “Doctor Strange,” the story of world-famous neurosurgeon Dr. Stephen Strange whose life changes forever after a horrific car accident robs him of the use of his hands. When traditional medicine fails him, he is forced to look for healing, and hope, in an unlikely place—a mysterious enclave known as Kamar-Taj. He quickly learns that this is not just a center for healing but also the front line of a battle against unseen dark forces bent on destroying our reality. Before long Strange—armed with newly acquired magical powers—is forced to choose whether to return to his life of fortune and status or leave it all behind to defend the world as the most powerful sorcerer in existence.
“Doctor Strange” stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong, Michael Stuhlbarg, Benjamin Bratt and Scott Adkins, with Mads Mikkelsen and Tilda Swinton. Scott Derrickson is directing with Kevin Feige producing. Louis D’Esposito, Stephen Broussard, Victoria Alonso, Charles Newirth and Stan Lee serve as executive producers. Jon Spaihts and Scott Derrickson & C. Robert Cargill wrote the screenplay.
Marvel Studios Hero Acts Campaign
Marvel Studios is launching the first Hero Acts campaign today, and from now until the end of the year, Marvel Studios will donate five dollars ($5) to Save the Children, up to U.S. one million dollars, for every fan who uploads a photo of themselves in their favorite Marvel hero pose. Marvel Studios is collaborating with Fotition, a new social change platform, to power the experience on a brand-new website MarvelStudiosHeroActs.

I’ll be be meeting up with master pumpkin carver, Joseph Yakovetic for a night of carving pumpkins to celebrate the in home release of Finding Dory Blu-ray release.
Disney•Pixar’s “Finding Dory” reunites everyone’s favorite forgetful blue tang, Dory, with her friends Nemo and Marlin on a search for answers about her past. What can she remember? Who are her parents? And where did she learn to speak Whale? Directed by Andrew Stanton (“Finding Nemo,” “WALL•E”) and produced by Lindsey Collins (co-producer “WALL•E”), the film features the voices of Ellen DeGeneres, Albert Brooks, Ed O’Neill, Kaitlin Olson, Ty Burrell, Eugene Levy and Diane Keaton.

I will be joining Freeform for an episode screening and special sit down interview with Ben and Lauren to discuss their new reality series “Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?” which follows the happy couple as they get ready to walk down the aisle.
Meeting the team from MECH-X4
Series Premiere Saturday, November 12
Ryan has the extraordinary ability to control technology with his mind and Disney Channel has invited us to a special advance screening to check it out. In the new live-action sci-fi adventure series “MECH-X4″ Ryan’s talent mysteriously awakens a giant 150-foot robot known as MECH-X4. He then recruits his two best friends and older brother to help him operate MECH-X4 to defend against monsters that suddenly begin to descend upon their city.
This is an all expense paid trip by Disney, it in no way shapes my opinions.
