February 27th, 2019.
Depending on who or what you believe, London’s “Captain Marvel” event was either a “European Premiere” (as promoted on Premierescene and Markmeets beforehand, and WhatsOnTheRedCarpet afterwards), a “London Premiere” (as promoted by AllinLondon), a “UK Gala” (as promoted on the giant poster on the side of the cinema), or even a “European Gala” (as promoted afterwards on wireimage). Whatever it was, however, I couldn’t get in because the organisers only gave out somewhere between 68 and 80 wristbands to their closest Autograph Dealer friends.
Oh well. Here’s how it went down, as photographed from outside the event.
So.. .that was that. Not my preferred way to photograph a premiere, but security indulged us for about 2/3 of the event before starting to insist that people leave. Given the alternative to photographing this event would have been to stay home, eat a nice meal and relax, I think……. I’m not sure how to finish that sentence, except to note that it’s +1 for the archive (and my first ‘real’ Marvel premiere since… I think Ant-Man? Woah. Wait.. no… it was Captain America Civil War)
Until next time!
