Life’s Tough Media is pleased to announce the latest episode of our “Life’s Tough: Superheroes are TOUGHER!” podcast series. Hosted by Stephen Shamus—President and co-founder of ACE Universe—this episode features Daniel Mancini, owner and president at MTC Toys.

This “Life’s Tough” episode released on July 2nd, 2021 and is now available on all major podcast networks under the Podcast Channel “Life’s Tough”.

Daniel Mancini works as a manager for Inspire Entertainment. He notes that they don’t have a ton of clients… because they are very focused on the talent they represent. The hosts of the Superheroes are Tougher podcast, Stephen Shamus and Alex Rae, had the opportunity to interview Daniel and get his thoughts on various aspects of the Superhero world.

Although he was born in Los Angeles, Daniel spent most of his time growing up in the UK. He maintained his US passport, though. After trying a few different careers in the UK, he used that passport to return to Los Angeles and give the management business a try.

He’s been with Inspire for ten years now. He manages Oscar Isaac, who plays Moon Knight for Marvel, and Anthony Mackie, who plays Falcon in the Marvel lineup. He appreciates the fact the Marvel makes it a priority to hire genuine acting talent for their films.

When asked about the popularity of Superhero films, Daniel reminds us that when families are spending their entertainment dollars, it’s not an inexpensive proposition. They want to find movies that offer something for each family member, and the Marvel movies do just that!

Classic themes of good guys and bad guys translate into real life. Daniel remarks that we tend to think of first responders and other everyday people as Superheroes, and they are… But he also notes that people can be Superheroes by using words and their voices to reassure and encourage others in life. Something as simple as offering a kind word can make a difference in someone’s life.
