VIVID STUDIO INSIDER FOR APRIL 17, 2015

 VIVID RELEASES AVENGERS XXX 2 – The Vivid.com release on Tuesday of Avengers XXX 2, the sequel to Axel Braun's 2012 VividXXXSuperheroes hit The Avengers XXX, earned widespread media attention. Stories of the debut appeared on AVN, XBiz.com, GuysGabAfterDark.com, MultiChannelNews.com, XCritic.com, AllAdultNetwork.com and many other sites. The new parody stars XRCO Best Actress winner Penny Pax as Mockingbird, Zoe Voss as Wasp, Rikki Six as Ms. Marvel, Jayden Jaymes as Maria Hill, Juelz Ventura as Viper and Eva Karera as Red Guardian. The male super-roles are Josh Rivers as Captain America, Eric Masterson as Hawkeye, Seth Gamble as Winter Soldier, Xander Corvus as Spider-Man and Lexington Steele as Nick Fury. Axel said upon the release: "This is just an awesome movie, and not just because I directed it! It's a fairly complex story, but it unfolds very fluidly while still allowing plenty of action and character development so the viewer can suspend disbelief. Rikki Six and Zoe Voss really steal the show in this one, and Xander Corvus is brilliant as always in the Spidey role, while Lexington Steele simply IS Nick Fury." Avengers XXX 2 was co-written by Eli Cross and tells the story of how the Avengers split into groups to battle a creature known as Onslaught. They find a toxic chemical hidden inside Hydra's secret base and things take a turn for the sinister when they wind up facing off against one of their own, Spider-Man, who has been transformed into an evil version of himself. As with many of Axel’s past comic book parodies, Avengers XXX 2 was released to the public just ahead of the big screen debut May 1 of its mainstream counterpart Avengers: Age of Ultron. The parody will be available on DVD April 28. DISCLAIMER: Avengers XXX 2: An Axel Braun Parody IS A PARODY MOVIE.

 FARRAH COVERAGE MENTIONS HER VIVID MOVIES – HollywoodLife.com and Mstarz.com covered Farrah Abraham’s new sex toy line, mentioning both of her Vivid movies. The MStarz story reads in part: “Teen Mom porn star Farrah Abraham has been trying to get every last drop from her MTV show and infamous sex tape. Now, the adult film star is selling her sex toy line as a way to prevent pregnancies and diseases. ‘It's the realest feeling thing on the market. I think it's better for the world because men can control themselves. It's safe sex,’ the reality mom told HollywoodLife.com. The Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom actress even used herself as a model for the anatomically correct figures. ‘They are molds straight from the one and only,’ she said. ‘It's kind of like a science project — the paper mache you used when you were growing up — it's how they make the toys.’
However, it's not only men showing their gratitude for the porn star's endeavor. ‘I get women thanking me for their significant other,’ according to the gossip site. ‘I'm only trying to do it for the right reasons and it's helping out others.’ Even the Farrah 2: Backdoor and More star's new boyfriend Simon Saran has given his approval for the erotic venture after sending him some to try out. ‘He's more educated to give me good feedback ... and he loves them!’ she said.”
