Wedgwood MUSE | Special Edition

Happy July! We hope your summer has been full and you are finding rest in the midst of these hot, hot months. We've had an exciting last few weeks at Wedgwood and wanted to share some of it with you in this special edition of the Wedgwood MUSE.

Last week, Wedgwood Circle Members gathered in San Diego and got a taste of the pop culture powerhouse that is Comic-Con. Upon returning we found some great articles that on touch on the conference, pop culture, and larger cultural impact of Comic-Con. Here are a few!

  • With the premiere of the first Wonder Woman trailer and the announcement of Oscar winner Brie Larson as the new Captain Marvel, the impact of women was one of the most talked about topics from the four day event. Jen Yamato’s article investigates the importance of the growing number of superheroines coming to theaters in the coming years. 

 

  • If you are a fan of NBC’s Chuck, Disney’s Tangled, or have attended the Broadway musical hit She Loves Me, you will be familiar with self-proclaimed nerd Zachary Levi. The actor, singer, and director talks about his popular event Nerd HQ, which Wedgwood had the exciting opportunity to explore.

 

  • As sci-fi and fantasy franchises grow larger and more popular, what was once considered niche is now taking over the mainstream. “Geek” is no longer an insult. However, many people are beginning to question how long the fanaticism will continue.
