This Week in Marvel Goes to Toy Fair 2019 and Flies with Ironheart
Interviews with Marvel's Director of Hardlines Product Development Jesse Falcon and Sofia Wylie of "Marvel Rising" -- it's almost too much fun!
Someone get Matt Murdock on the phone because having this much fun should be illegal -- on the latest episode of This Week in Marvel, co-hosts Ryan "Agent M" Penagos and Jamie Frevele talk Toy Fair 2019 as well as Riri Williams aka Ironheart! That's already a jam-packed show, but there's also a ton of big news to go along with it:
- Two new trailers dropped this week for "Marvel's Cloak and Dagger" Season 2, coming to Freeform on Thursday, April 4, and "Marvel's Wolverine: The Lost Trail," coming exclusively to Stitcher Premium on Monday, March 25!
- And don't think there isn't news about Marvel Studios' "Captain Marvel" -- or is it "Captain Meow-val"? Fans of Carol Danvers knows that she loves her cat, and there was plenty of cat action on Marvel.com this week. Don't miss the Marvel Studios featurette starring Goose the Cat, and perhaps a few words from human stars Brie Larson and Samuel L. Jackson.
- Comics fans will also get their cat content -- MARVEL MEOW debuted three out of six variant covers that will feature cat-aclysmic nine-panel comics by Japanese artist Nao Fuji. Follow Marvel on Instagram to be the first to see the last three!
- Captain Marvel is also getting in on the gaming action -- on Friday, March 8, the same day Marvel Studios' "Captain Marvel" hits theaters, several Marvel video games will bring in Carol Danvers in honor of her joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
But this week's show is all about Toy Fair 2019 and Ironheart! Ryan talks with Marvel's Director of Hardlines Product Development Jesse Falcon to see the best of this year's Toy Fair offerings. See the toys and watch part of the interview in the video above! Ryan also spoke with Sofia Wylie, who voices Riri Williams in "Marvel Rising."
