I am lucky enough to be attending ACE Comic Con Midwest this weekend. There is so much to look forward to, like all of the incredible panels with some of the biggest actors in Hollywood. Personally, I am extremely excited to attend Brie Larson and Tessa Thompson’s panel. It is unknown whether we’ll get to see Captain Marvel and Valkyrie together on the big screen again, so I want to soak up all of the greatness and wisdom these stellar women can offer us outside of an epic MCU film. Tom Holland and Jake Gyllenhaal’s panel is sure to be a fun one as well, especially if the Spider-Man: Far from Home press tour is any sign to how much fun those to can have.
