It’s official. Marvel packed up and moved out of Cleveland. I still didn’t get to see any of the filming in person once again. Though, I did try out to be an extra. Next time, I will be an extra in a Marvel movie. I know they aren’t done using Cleveland for filming in future movies. After all, this is the third Marvel movie they have filmed here since 2002. ;)
Good news is, Captain America Winter Soldier comes out 277 days. I presume we’ll see the first trailer with Thor 2? If this is the case, I may have to see Thor 2 just for that reason.
Cleveland, please stop being stupid. I don’t think you are going to win lawsuit against Marvel. I don’t understand why the people of Cleveland are complaining and bitching about a movie being filmed here. It’s doing so much good! And seriously, we want to stay on Marvel’s good side! There are so many other potential Marvel movies that can be filmed here! We want them to come back.
Look what came today in my mail! It’s the prizes from the Transformers Ride contest for being winners 2 - 10!!! I am one of 10 people in the world right now that owns an official deluxe EVAC toy! I also got a letter, two posters, a patch, a hat and a t-shirt along with it. I still worked my ass for these prizes, but it would been amazing if I could of won a free trip to Hollywood Universal to ride the Ride on opening weekend. Some day I will get out there though. Best part, the prizes all came a week before TFCON!! (I think I’m just more excited by the fact that I actually won a contest. I never do…)
Yesterday, May 24th, was the grand opening of the new Transformers: The Ride at Universal Studios, Hollywood. As seen in the picture, there was several guests there including Peter Cullen and Frank Welker who rode the ride. Cullen had also supplied the voice of Optimus Prime for the Ride as well. Apparently, Speilburg was on the red carpet with several Transformers characters and actors.
Man, I would of given anything to be there on opening day. Or even be one of those people in the car with Peter or Frank. You lucky, lucky bastards whoever you are. Do you even know who you were riding with?
