Well it has been awhile since Superheroes On The Run has updated our blog. Why you may ask? My laptop got a serious computer virus. It did create major problems on all my programs.
At first I tried to Google and clean off the virus. I was NOT successful. So I took it to a professional. They got rid of the virus and I now have a paid virus protection plan.
Let me bring you up to speed on what Superheroes On The Run has been doing while the laptop was being 'de-virused'.
In mid-May, Karen (Wonder Woman) and I (Mr. Incredible) attended the 25th Anniversary of the Motor City Comic Con, held at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, MI.
Since we bought our tickets online for Sunday only and able to get into the expo 30 minutes earlier than general admission. Of course we wore our SUPER suits!
We wanted to visit and look at each and every vendor in the expo. I was looking for something for my son. He is into Superman. I didn't know exactly what I was looking for, but I would know it when I see it.
As we stopped by each table, other guests, both in and out of costume, would ask for a photo op. We were always happy to do so. About a third of the way through the 'window' shopping, we ran into Ryan.
We met Ryan about 4 years ago at our first time visiting a comic con. Since then Ryan has become a Facebook friend.

We at Superheroes on the Run Put the FUN and Run and the SPICE in LIFE. Today is a SPICE day! Karen and I waited in line, over 3 hours, at the Somerset Inn (Troy, MI) to possibly have a chance to be a 'paid' extra for the upcoming movie by Warner's Batman vs Superman.
Finally we were able to make it to the auditorium to listen for final instructions about the application. Fill it out completely as possible and legibly. So I put my 'drafting-style' printing to work filling out each and every line. At the bottom they asked if "you" have any other talents. I wrote juggling but left off Former Skydiver, Former SCUBA diver and Former Figure Skater. After handing the app... I thought I should have included my expertise/skills with MS Excel and MS PowerPoint. lol
The woman in this picture with me, a selfie of course, is in charge of the Warner Bros Detroit Casting Call Event. She must have been tired by the end of the day repeating the same thing over and over. She was polite enough to take a selfie with me during her hectic schedule.
I took a picture of Karen handing in her app for a chance as an extra. We found out they were looking for 6,000 paid extras to work between June and Mid-November. If I get chosen I will be burning all my vacation time from work to be a part of this project.
One more side note... in the application they asked if you had a car that might be used for the movie. I said, sure why not, you can use my 2008 smart fortwo (at $10 a day rate as stated by Warners).
We will find out within a few weeks we Karen or I will be ask to be extras for the movie. So stand by for an update... either good or bad.
