Reindeer Game’sBen Affleck and Jennifer Garner (who played Daredevil and Elektra in the respective Marvel films) had a baby girl named Violet yesterday, officially making them Marvel’s first movie family. (I think. Anyone else out there know of this happening previous to now?) The couple was married in June; both are 33 years old and it is the first child for both.
So we know that in the Marvel-verse, Reed and Sue Richards were Marvel’s first family; and their offspring Franklin
has the potential to become one of the world’s most powerful mutants (a psionic, primarily). So what about the offspring of the first movie Marvel family? Will she have the potential to become one of the world’s most hammy actresses?
Maybe someday Steven Spielberg
will become possessed by a demon alien (of course, if you believe Tom Cruise
he already has) and after all of the actors fail in their last ditch combined effort to defeat him, Violet will save all of Hollywood by transporting them into a pocket dimension. Movie stars will be crossing over into each other’s films like crazy, and it will be dubbed the “comic-movies event of the year.” Press releases will tell us that it will "change the face of Marvel Comics Movies for years to come!" Okay, I think I might have went overboard on that one…hopefully there are at least a few Marvel fans out there that followed me and thought that it was at least moderately funny.
