SPIDER-MAN EXCLUSIVE: Avi Arad, "Grandpa" of the Marvel Cinematic Universe
At the press junket for Amazing Spider-Man, CBM editor Ed Gross caught up (very) briefly with producer Avi Arad, the man who ushered Marvel to the big screen as early as Blade and X-Men, just to get his feelings on how far the vision has come.
Not sure if everyone remembers this, but it was Avi who fought the good fight to get Hollywood to start believing in Marvel as the source for feature films, and it's pretty incredible to have gone from the days of Blade to where we are today with The Avengers, Amazing Spider-Man and so many more.
