'I’ve got my Captain America jacket and shield ready' – Paul Ross meets a Marvel superfan

Paul Ross has had a varied number of guests on his show over recent weeks. 

But he's never had someone quite like 49-year-old Simon Goodwin from Tamworth, who is a massive fan of the Marvel films.

With the latest instalment in the franchise, Captain America: Civil War, to be released tomorrow (Thursday), Simon told talkRADIO he'll be turning up in style. 

“I’m going to the midnight viewing on Thursday night," he said to Paul Ross. "And I’ve got my Captain America jacket and shield all ready.”

And it’s not just Captain America Simon’s fanatical about - he can't get enough of Thor either. 

“Thor’s my favourite," he added. "I’ve got a Thor hammer."

And it doesn’t seem as though Simon’s penchant for dressing up and collecting superhero toys will be coming to an end any time soon.

“Not in this lifetime,” he said firmly. “I’ve got a very understanding wife.” 

Yes, he said it. Wife. Paul was amazed, too.
