This week saw a pretty big announcement from Marvel in the form of a new application called Marvel AR and a revolutionary new line called Infinite comics.

One of the reasons Marvel’s movies work so well is getting not only the right cast but also the best director for each film.

Kat talked about what it was like to join the Marvel Universe… and mishaps with her taser scene. Check out the full interview…
