Seattle’s real life super heroes are welcoming fans to catch up with Marvel’s cinematic heroes at SIFF Cinema. Citizen Heroes and The Collectibles co-present SIFF’s Avengers Assemble Week as we count down to Marvel’s The Avengers.
The Collectibles is a hilarious super comedy web series creators Dan Heinrich and Todd Downing describe as The Avengers meets The Office. Citizen Heroes is a documentary about the real life super hero movement in the Pacific Northwest.
Death Wish and Aguaman of The Collectibles were suited up and shared the trailer for their series before introducing The Incredible Hulk – the first in this week’s series of Marvel solo movies.
Before greeting the crowd in the theater I asked Death Wish (Joe Downing) and Aguaman (Frank Aye) about their characters, making the web series and their favorite Avengers.
Dan Heinrich and Todd Downing are the creative forces behind The Collectibles. If you’re job gets you down you might want to sneak a peek at the office comedy on the web. The story has costumed heroes with a twist that everybody can connect with. I asked them what inspired their series.
“The Collectibles” are co-presenting this week’s series of Avengers solo movie so I had to ask the guys behind these comic heroes about their favorite Avengers.
Avengers Assemble continues this week! It’s a double feature Tuesday night. Hey it’s for Tony Stark – big ego deserves a big night with multiple hosts! Knight Owl of Citizen Heroes will introduce Iron Man. Shield Maiden & Ennui of The Collectibles will introduce Iron Man II.
Wednesday you can travel back to Asgard with Thor in 3D with Citizen Heroes director Matt Harrison and Knight Owl. Thursday celebrate Captain America: The First Avenger with an introduction by Sky Man, the Tri-Colored Crusader from Citizen Heroes.
Stay tune for more stories with Matt Harrison, the director who just spent a year on patrol with the real life heroes of Seattle for his upcoming documentary Citizen Heroes.
