The five contest finalists toured Disney and Dolby studios in Los Angeles, networked with top female executives at Disney and Marvel, attended the world premiere of Captain America: Civil War (which has already made $200 million overseas and counting) and met the stars, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and Marvel founder Stan Lee.
