ant-man writing credit

When a movie goes through as much public turmoil as Marvel’s Ant-Man, it’s always mysterious how the credits are going to end up. Originally, when Edgar Wright was going to direct, the screenplay was by Wright and Joe Cornish. But when Wright left and Peyton Reed came on to direct, Adam McKay and Paul Rudd – also the film’s star – took over scripting duties.

Now, with the film a mere few months from release, all that legal stuff has been handled and all four men are going to get credit. Read the full Ant-Man writing credits below. Read More »

Two new clips have arrived for Marvel’s summer movies, and each one has a revelation of sorts. One, from Avengers: Age of Ultron, shows the arrival of Vision, the new character played by Paul Bettany. As a bonus, it has narration of sorts from the actor, as he presented the clip during a TV interview appearance. The other, from Ant-Man, shows Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) breaking into a safe that contains a surprising set of objects.

Check out the Ant-Man clip and Age of Ultron footage below.  Read More »

As big as the superhero renaissance is at the movie theater, TV is at the very least matching it. In fact, it’s probably beating it.

At least ten superhero shows are either currently on the air, coming soon, or recently finished including Gotham, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Arrow, The Flash, Daredevil, Supergirl, and Constantine. And that doesn’t even count the upcoming Flash/Arrow spin-off, a potential Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D spin-off, the other Marvel Netflix shows and many more.

Every one of these shows has its fans and detractors, but very few people have looked at the current superhero TV show as a whole. The Daily Dot did and realized that all of these shows have a lot in common. To make the point, they created an easily digestible illustration. Check out the superhero TV infographic below.
