Mike DeAngelo
Mike DeAngelo is a husband, father, superhero enthusiast, and all-around film lover that hails from the mostly-frigid Milwaukee, Wisconsin. When he’s not watching movies, he’s probably thinking, writing, and talking about movies. When he’s not watching, thinking, writing, or talking about movies, he’s probably sleeping or changing diapers. He began his film-writing obsession a few years back on a site called Back to the Features and recently brought his talents to FandomWire because he needs more movie-obsessed friends. Mike also works with a Software-as-a-Service company named Zywave, as, let’s face it, film-writing doesn’t pay the bills these days.
Steven Gurman
Steven Gurman is a movie fanatic, to the point where he has looked into if watching movies is a legitimate addiction/problem. Some of Steve’s recent crazy movie achievements include having watched every film/short/foreign/documentary film that has been Oscar nominated over the last 6 years and watching over 500 new movies in a year.

Maxwell Mantik was born in Calgary Alberta and currently lives in a hamlet about half an hour outside the city.

His voice acting worked has been featured in films at the Vancouver film festival, and has worked on 7 short films. His interests include superheros, sci-fi, fantasy, acting, writing, hockey, and shooting guns (because he likes to think he’s edgy).
