Ant-Man and the Wasp Early Buzz

Late Friday night, the first reactions to Marvel’s latest superhero sequel hit the web.

Ant-Man and the Wasp has been screened for critics, and the first reactions from social media have started to surface. So far, the buzz is pretty damn high with many calling it fun and hilarious, praising the creative use of size (both big and small), and one reaction even thinks it’s Marvel’s best sequel since Captain America: The Winter Soldier. That sounds like high praise, so without further adieu, we’ll let the reactions speak for themselves. Read More »

Ant-Man and the Wasp connects to Avengers 4

During our visit to the set of Ant-Man and the Wasp, director Peyton Reed told us that the events of his upcoming superhero sequel were “separate” from Avengers: Infinity War, taking place years earlier in the wake of Captain America: Civil War. But in a new featurette, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige says that Ant-Man and the Wasp will directly connect to Avengers 4 instead.

Ant-Man and the Wasp Featurette

Ant-Man and the Wasp are at it again in yet another new featurette showcasing the upcoming Marvel film. The sequel to Marvel’s light and frothy Ant-Man comes on the heels of all the d0om-and-gloom of Avengers: Infinity War, and might just be what fans need right now. Watch the Ant-Man and the Wasp featurette below.

Ant-Man and the Wasp clip

Fans’ heads are still spinning from the ending of Avengers: Infinity War, but Marvel Studios is barreling on with Ant-Man and the Wasp, the 20th entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe that hits theaters next month. In a newly-released Ant-Man and the Wasp clip, we get to see Evangeline Lilly‘s Wasp employ some pretty slick driving skills in one of the most unconventional car chases in any superhero film. Take a look below. Read More »

ant-man and the wasp villain

Thus far, the marketing for Ant-Man and the Wasp has been building up Hannah John-Kamen‘s Ghost as the Big Bad of the Marvel sequel. But could another classic Marvel Comics villain make a surprise appearance in the Ant-Man sequel?

Another Ant-Man and the Wasp villain may have flown right under our nose. And it was only thanks to the recently released Ant-Man and the Wasp cast list that we learned Ghost may not be the only antagonist causing trouble for Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), and Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly).

Ant-Man and the Wasp Hannah John-Kamen interview

Hannah John-Kamen played Ben Mendelsohn’s number two baddie earlier this year in Ready Player One, but she’s graduating from henchwoman to supervillain in Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man and the Wasp. The British actress plays Ghost, a character who…well, who we don’t really know much about at this point. Marvel is trying very hard to keep this character’s details under wraps, which made for an interesting dance during our interview with John-Kamen on the film’s set outside Atlanta last fall.

Ant-Man and the Wasp Michael Douglas interview

Last fall, the legendary Michael Douglas enters a conference room in a sound stage a few feet from where he was just filming a scene with his Ant-Man and the Wasp co-star Paul Rudd. Douglas, who plays the brilliant scientist/engineer Hank Pym in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, is in a pleasant, upbeat mood, asking myself and the handful of other journalists if we’re enjoying our lunch. “The veggie burger was good. I don’t know if anybody’s had the veggie burger,” he says. “The food’s good here!”

Douglas’s cheery disposition is a far cry from the scene in which we just saw him perform: from monitors on the sound stage, we watched as Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) exits a van, leaving Hank Pym and his estranged protege Scott Lang (Rudd) alone in the vehicle. “She seems more intense,” Scott quips. But Hank is in no mood for jokes. “She hasn’t seen her mother in 30 years, and she’s so close to finding her. How would you be?” he responds coldly.

Ant-Man and the Wasp follows Hank and Hope on a quest to find Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), the original Wasp, who was lost in the Quantum Realm decades earlier. During a break between takes, we spoke with Douglas about stepping back into a familiar role, how Hank Pym has changed since the events of the first movie, and much more.

Ant-Man and the Wasp Evangeline Lilly interview

Just a few steps from the set of Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man and the Wasp, a few other writers and I caught up with actress Evangeline Lilly, who has graduated from Scott Lang’s begrudging trainer/love interest in the original Ant-Man to a full-fledged superhero in her own right in this sequel. During a break from filming, the lively actress spoke with us about how different Hope van Dyne will be from the last time we saw her on screen, the cool gadgets and technology her character utilizes in the film, her approach to stunt training, and a whole lot more.

Ant-Man and the Wasp Paul Rudd interview

On a nice September day at Pinewood Studios outside of Atlanta, a handful of journalists and I spoke with one of Marvel’s smallest superheroes on the set of Ant-Man and the Wasp. The effervescent Paul Rudd, who often radiates boundless energy on screen, seemed, well, a little exhausted. It’s hard to blame him – at the time, he was in the middle of filming two major Marvel movies simultaneously, bouncing back and forth between the set of Ant-Man and the Wasp and the Russo Brothers’ Avengers 4 (which was also filming at the same production facility).

Despite what must have been a monumentally busy day, the actor/writer was nice enough to make time to chat with us in between takes and still managed to crack a few jokes in the process. The man who plays reformed thief Scott Lang explained what Scott’s up to when we meet him in director Peyton Reed’s sequel, the character’s new suit, working closer with the Wasp this time, the challenges of co-writing the screenplay, and much more.

Ant-Man and the Wasp Peyton Reed interview

Last fall, I visited the Atlanta set of Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man and the Wasp with a batch of other online reporters. During any set visit for a major film, having a chance to actually speak with the director is far from a guarantee: they’re often just a tiny bit busy as they carry the weight of a hundred-million-dollar-plus behemoth on their backs. But Peyton Reed, the director of Ant-Man and who’s behind the camera again for this sequel, devoted seventeen minutes of his time to talk to us in between takes. That may not seem like a long time, but for an on-set interview, it’s an eternity.

Considering the circumstances, I expected Reed to be at least slightly frazzled, but he was easy-going, thorough, and game to answer any question we threw his way. He told us about the ticking clock aspect of his sequel, the challenges of sharing star Paul Rudd with a neighboring production, giving Hope van Dyne’s character added importance this time around, and much more.
