Brie Larson and a slew of other actors from Marvel's Cinematic Universe descended on Chicago this past weekend.

Along with Larson were Chris Hemsworth (Thor) Jake Gyllenhaal, Tom Holland, (Spiderman: Far From Home) and Tessa Thompson (Thor Ragnarok).

Ace Comic-Con at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont was packed with fans of movies, tv, and comics.

Throughout the weekend, celebrities were part of panels where they answered fan questions. When they weren't on stage answering questions, they were taking photos with fans. When they weren't doing either of those they were signing autographs.


I got to see it all go down. I was there. I saw the lines of people waiting for pictures, autographs and the chance to sit in on a panel.

The convention center was packed and better yet, this was the very first comic convention Brie Larson was involved.

Better yet, she also got a chance to witness a marriage proposal. Better better yet, she had the best reaction to the marriage proposal.

No proposals when I and the family had a chance to meet Brie Larson this past Saturday, but definite smiles all around.


My middle son, (with the Batman shirt) was completely starstruck. He had the same reaction Larson had during the marriage proposal.
