Podcast: Preview 'The Avengers'
“The Avengers,” which brings together big-time Marvel Comics superheroes from a bunch of recent movies for one big-budget adventure, is about to kick off the summer movie season.
Community Media Lab blogger Chris Lambert (Comics, Don’t Get Me Started) and The News-Herald editors Mark Meszoros (movie nut), John Bertosa (an extra during the “Avengers” shoot in Cleveland last year) and Mark Podolski (superhero enthusiast) talk about how the movie came to be made, their expectations for it and its roots in the comic books.
Lambert is a lifelong comic book collector and author. He has lectured on film and comics at Lakeland Community College, written a weekly column for The News-Herald, and written and performed a daily radio show about the history of comics. Find Lambert online at his blog at Comics Don't Get Me Started and at the website E Comics Gazette.
