Favorite MCU Movie: Avengers: Infinity War

This movie had absolutely everything. A fantastic and fluent story, incredible action, serious stakes, one of the best villains ever brought to the big screen, and just so much fun throughout the course of the movie. Filled with multiple standing ovation-worthy moments and an ending that dropped jaws to the floor, it was as close to perfection as anything that's come out of the MCU to date.

Favorite MCU character: Spider-Man

The first Spider-Man movie from 2002 was my introduction to the Marvel world as a kid, and the web-slinger has always been a character I’ve connected with, even more so through his introduction into the MCU. He may not be the biggest or fastest or strongest, but he just always wants to do whats right and help those in need, which anybody in our world can relate to.

Why I joined The Direct:

I’ve come to love being a content creator and writer, especially for anything related to Marvel, and The Direct is an incredible opportunity to reach an even bigger fanbase that has the same passion for the MCU as I do. I’m looking forward to improving my skills as a writer and journalist through my work and having the chance to be one of the sources that breaks the very news I love hearing about every day!
