243. The Marvel Cinematic Universe Panel at CONvergence

19 Dec

Kickass heroines, Marvel-ous universes, and ants, oh my!  Recorded at CONvergence, this panel on the Marvel Cinematic Universe is akin to a blast from the past.  Featuring the voice talents of Lyda Morehouse (a.k.a. Tate Hallaway), Allyson Cygan, Shaun Duke, John Seavey, and Neil Anderson, the panel discusses the current Marvel film canon, upcoming projects, and our hopes for the future (some of which Marvel has kindly answered).

Here is the panel description:

Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier have been out, and Agents of SHIELD, Guardians of the Galaxy, The Defenders, and Ant Man are on the horizon. How do they all compare? What do you want to see next?

We hope you enjoy the episode!
