Emily S. Whitten: Civil War in the MCU

Emily S. Whitten

Emily S. Whitten writes everything from news, reviews, and interviews to how-tos, con round-ups, and opinion pieces for ComicMix and others; as well as comics featured on ComicMix, MTV.com, and Reelz.com; and occasionally even award-winning poetry and fiction. When she's not writing for fun or profit, she’s sharing geeky thoughts on the Fantastic Forum radio show and podcast Made of Fail. Emily is a convention organizer and consultant, and co-chair of the fourth North American Discworld Convention, which she co-founded. She has been Program Coordinator for Awesome Con and staff for several genre cons. Emily is a program moderator for Awesome Con and Fan2Sea; and you might also recognize her from her days of answering questions online as her alter-ego, Ask Deadpool. In her copious spare time, Emily enjoys crafting and cosplay, and looking after the cutest three-legged dwarf hamster in the world, ElliePuff. Oh, and when she's not doing all that, Emily is an active member of The National Press Club and holds down a 9-to-5 as a senior attorney for the federal government - although that may just be her superheroine cover identity.

    Great, great, GREAT review, Em’. And I don’t care about the spoilers–with which you did another great job–because all spoilers do for me is whet my appetite to see them actually play out on the screen.

    This weekend, fur shure!

      Thanks, Mindy! Yeah, at some point I just want to analyze the heck out of stuff and you can’t do that without at least a little spoiling. But I try not to spoil every little thing.

      Hope you had fun at the movie!

    Great film.

    But one annoying thing; i caught a 3D showing, since i’ve been very happy with Marvel 3D releases before.

    But this one was pretty bad – fast action scenes strobed horribly.

      I don’t do the 3-D thing, Mike. It gives me a headache.

      And as I told Mike Gold, I’m waiting for the holosuite to happen so it can be a totally immersive experience. :-)
