Ant-Man confirms Yellowjacket

Two years ago in Hall H, we got our first peek at some test footage from Ant-Man. This year, we finally got a taste of the real thing. Kevin Feige, Peyton Reed, Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Corey Stoll, and Evangeline Lilly took the stage to promote their new film, dishing up new details and footage.

Among other things, we finally got confirmation that Stoll would be playing Darren Cross a.k.a. Yellowjacket, and that Lilly would be playing Hank Pym’s daughter Hope Van Dyne. Hit the jump to find out what else we learned, and to get the details.

UPDATE: Watch the full panel below.

Josh Brolin Thanos Comic Con

Avengers: Age Of Ultron might be the end of Phase Two but, according to one of its new members, it’s just the beginning.

While the first footage from Avengers: Age of Ultron was undoubtedly the highlight of Marvel’s 2014 Comic-Con panel, a few of the actors on stage (which included Robert Downey Jr., Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Hemsworth, Colbie Smulders, Samuel L. Jackson, Chris Evans, Aaron Taylor Johnson, Paul Bettany, James Spader, Elizabeth Olsen and eventually Josh Brolin, who showed up at the end.) dropped hints at what their characters might mean for the future. In particular Olsen – who plays the Scarlet Witch – said that she and Quicksilver (Taylor-Johnson) coming into the mix sets the tone for the upcoming Marvel films. Read her, and more Avengers Age of Ultron cast quotes, below.

Everyone who was in Hall H Saturday night at San Diego Comic Con is still buzzing about the footage they saw from a few upcoming releases. One of those is Avengers: Age of Ultron but, unfortunately, Marvel doesn’t plan on revealing that footage to the public any time soon. You can read about it, or you can check out two huge clues that showed up at the Marvel Booth on the final day of the convention. There’s Captain America’s unbreakable shield, actually broken, and a very early iteration of of Ultron. Check out the Avengers Age of Ultron Props below. Read More »

Avengers 2 vision powers

Paul Bettany took the stage with the rest of the Avengers: Age of Ultron cast today during Marvel’s panel in Hall H. But we didn’t see any significant shots of the character in the footage preview, and Bettany had little to say during the panel that lets us know what to expect from Vision. So all we’ve got on the character is that concept art shot above, and that ain’t much.

Today I took part in a small roundtable interview with Bettany, and there he dropped more than a few hints about how the character behaves in the film, and what we can expect from him in the context of action scenes. The best note? One of the character’s best powers is intact.  Read More »

Doctor Strange supernatural

Doctor Strange is one of the next big movies on Marvel’s slate, and we’re starting to get a good picture of what the film will offer. Scott Derrickson (Sinister, Deliver Us From Evil) is directing and Jon Spaihts is writing the latest script draft. While Joaquin Phoenix has reportedly been in talks for the lead role, Marvel has yet to confirm the deal.

At the Marvel Studios comic con panel this evening, there was no news on Doctor Strange. But I took part in a small roundtable interview with Kevin Feige today which covered a range of topics regarding Marvel’s movies. We’ll have a full transcript soon, but I want to highlight one specific point.

I asked Feige what Doctor Strange will bring to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He enthusiastically described the notion of moving through dimensions, but in a way that is based on or at least inspired by real science. And Feige name-checks the revival of Cosmos when talking about the magic of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Read More »

Ant-Man footage

All those production delays meant Ant-Man didn’t go in front of cameras early enough for Marvel to show us Paul Rudd or Michael Douglas in action at Comic-Con. But it wouldn’t be like Marvel to show up to Hall H completely empty-handed, and so they “filmed a little something to show you guys,” as Kevin Feige put it.

We were treated to a brief bit of Ant-Man footage, really an FX test with voiceover. Hit the jump to get our Ant-Man footage recap and reaction.

avengers 2 comic con

As expected, the cast of Avengers: Age of Ultron (minus an injured Joss Whedon) took the stage in Hall H during the Marvel Studios panel and presented the first footage anywhere from the highly anticipated sequel. The film opens May 1, 2015 and we heard the footage won’t be online for some time (probably like last year’s Guardians of the Galaxy reel which took months). In it though we saw Ultron in multiple forms, the Hulkbuster, Andy Serkis as a human and so much more.

Below, read about what was shown in the footage during the Avengers 2 Comic Con panel. Read More »
