Things We Saw Today: This “Viral” News Report Criticizes Collateral Damage by The Avengers
In a news clip released by the Marvel in-verse network WHIH Newsfront, reporter Christine Everhart (Leslie Bibb), whom you may also recognize from her appearance in Iron Man (as well as her ahem, brief relationship with Tony Stark) sits down to talk with political correspondent Will Adams (IRL Daily Show correspondent Al Madrigal) about the damage left behind by the Avengers in spite of their world-saving. There’s also a great Twitter account for the fictional network. This is the kind of pre-movie marketing I can get behind.
