Skype and Marvel – together again!
The last time Skype and Marvel came together resulted in an event in LA that brought together troops at Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Tacoma, WA with their families and the stars of Marvel’s Iron Man 3. The troops also enjoyed a simultaneous screening of the LA premiere, live from their base.
So what have we been doing this time?
We gave fans the chance to submit their burning questions to the cast of Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World and also Kevin Feige, the producer and President of Marvel Entertainment. Our fans were closer than ever to uncovering the roots of the nine realms. Our Film Brand Ambassador, Georgia, helped by creating a ‘How To’ for those new to video messaging on Skype. The response was overwhelming with a virtual avalanche of entries, including many costumed questioners, like Allyson.
We selected the best video messages and sent them to the Kevin Feige, the producer of Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World and President of Marvel studios. We also sent video messages for the cast to answer. Find out what they had to say here: http://thortdw.skype.com
Of course, every movie has a premiere, and this time Skype was a part of not just one, but two! Some of our Moment Makers had the chance to attend and make moments of their own. Benjamin and Rich attended the world premiere of Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World in London, snapping some great pics and shooting an impromptu red carpet video.
We also transported the action and excitement of the red carpet to patients at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. A giant monitor showcased a special Skype video call that brought the heroes of Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World together with the children at the hospital. A special area in the hospital was transformed to resemble Thor’s mythical home of Asgard, immersing the children in Thor’s world as they watched a special, simultaneous showing of Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World.

And there is much more to come as we delve deeper behind the screens for the upcoming Marvel’s Captain America: the Winter Solider (April 4, 2014) and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy (August 1, 2014).
Be sure to catch Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World in theaters, and keep your eyes open for more opportunities in the coming months for Skype and Marvel to bring the heroes closer to you!
