Marvel Cast Being Interviewed By Kids

There’s a saying that goes… “Make a fan in a kid and you have a fan for life.” That’s exactly what happened when these actors became Marvel superheroes. Robert Downey Jr. will always be Iron Man; Tom Holland will always be Spider-Man; and so on. It’s quite wholesome, especially when these kids get to meet their heroes and ask them any question they want. Sometimes all they want to know is “What are your favorite vegetables?” 

Children, due to our perceiving them as innocent, can get away with some things adults can’t. They can be curious, for instance, in ways that would be perceived as rude or downright offensive if us grownups tried it. Which makes them fantastic celebrity interviewers.

Now, I’m not suggesting we hire children to be investigative journalists or anything, but this is at least an argument for bringing one along to interviews to precociously ask the questions you can’t get away with.

Kids are naturally drawn to superheroes and want nothing more than a chaotic good guy/bad guy fight that ends with — at least in my house — a huge pile of action figures on the floor.

One of the great joys of watching the Marvel Cinematic Universe unfold over its first decade was seeing how much people of all backgrounds, interest levels, and ages embraced the world of Marvel Comics and its characters.

 This ambitious shared universe shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon, and the MCU remains a place where parents and kids can come together and have a good time at the movies. Because adults and children see the world differently, though, that can also bring with it a few disagreements. 

An adult and a child can see the same Marvel film, and both can come away feeling passionately about it, but for very different reasons.

When you’re a kid, and you’re having a good time with a movie, You want to be taken on a journey, and if that journey means the gold and blues and reds of the Grandmaster’s palace in Ragnarok, then that’s where you want to go. 

These young fans understand, or at least celebrate, the importance of contrast, and the brightness in Marvel films is there so that when the darkness comes, we really feel it.
