In the style of an MCU Origin Story Movie like Ant-Man...

In a World…where there are heroes and villains, and mysterious forces that people will never fully understand, one simple college student will find himself transformed into…Hedgehog-Man! Welcome to the debut movie of the AMCU: The Avish and Mike Cinematic Universe!

This episode features the improv games Two-Word Typewriter, Best of Times, Worst of Times, Newsroom, Cutting Room, and Pardon.

This episode also features our friend and fellow improviser (one of the founding members of the Improv group we started way back in 1996), Craig Liggeons! While Craig doesn’t do any improv with us here, he is a pop culture expert, huge movie and comic book fan, and co-host of the Comic Book Gurus Podcast. As such he is the perfect guest expert to discuss MCU movies with us!

About this Episode

In this episode, we pay homage to one of our favorite genres: Marvel Movies! That’s a pretty broad genre, so we niched it down to small-scale origin stories. Mostly Ant-Man, but also Spider-man and a few others.
