As New York Comic-Con gets underway, Marvel Studios has made some big changes to its Phase Three plans. Among other things, an Ant-Man sequel, titled Ant-Man and the Wasp, is now set for 2018. Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly are expected to reprise their roles as Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne. More on Ant-Man and the Wasp after the jump. Read More »

Disney held an event at Hero Complex Gallery in Los Angeles on Tuesday night to celebrate the home video release of Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron (which hits stores and VOD on October 2nd 2015). They unveiled a new Tyler Stout print for the film, and Marvel head Kevin Feige and Avengers producer Jeremy Latchem were on hand for an extensive 26 minute question and answer session.
As with most of these Question and Answer sessions, the queries thrown at Feige began at the Avengers sequel but quickly diverted to the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, including Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, The Avengers: Infinity War and Jon Watts’ Spider-Man reboot. Its so much that we’re going to divide this into two posts. This first post will focus on how Marvel plotted the Infinity stones in phase one and two and the upcoming phase three leading to The Avengers: Infinity War. Here is what is answered:
- When will we see the final two Infinity Stones?
- When did they know that they would start introducing the Infinity Gems?
- Was making the Tesseract an Infinity Stone planned after the fact?
- Will Avengers: Infinity War be an end of the story told thus far?
- Has the entire story leading to the conclusion in The Avengers: Infinity War Part II been planned out already?
- Were the Avengers: Age of Ultron visions a prediction of the future that could come in Infinity War?
After the jump you can check out the Tyler Stout Avengers Age of Ultron poster that premiered at the event. You can also watch the entire question and answer session captured on video. I believe I was the only one in attendance who was recording video, so while you might read some choice quotes elsewhere — this is a bit of an exclusive.

For a Marvel movie, Ant-Man was pretty self-contained. It mostly kept to its own tiny corner of the universe, with its own colorful cast and own potentially world-destroying problems. The one major exception was a scene midway through the movie, when Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) sneaks into Avengers HQ.
His subsequent encounter with Sam Wilson a.k.a. Falcon (Anthony Mackie) is one of the film’s highlights — a playful tie-in that does a great job of showing off Ant-Man’s unique abilities. While most of us have already seen Ant-Man at this point, it still makes for an entertaining rewatch. See the Ant-Man vs Falcon clip after the jump. Read More »

(Spoilers for Ant-Man follow.)
The Wasp was conspicuously absent from this summer’s Ant-Man, but the ending of the film suggested a new Wasp might be coming to the MCU in the not-too-distant future. Now Ant-Man actress Evangeline Lilly suggests plans for the superhero’s MCU introduction are well underway, revealing she’s already been fitted for the suit. Read the Evangeline Lilly Wasp suit comments after the jump. Read More »
With the release of Ant-Man earlier this month, we’re officially done with releases from Marvel Studios for 2015. Despite the trouble behind the scenes before the film started shooting, with Peyton Reed replacing Edgar Wright as director, it actually turned out to be a pretty decent comic book flick.
But one fan thinks that movie could have been infinitely better if famed documentarian and Jack Reacher villain Werner Herzog was behind the camera instead. Patrick H. Willems, the man behind Wes Anderson’s Uncanny X-Men, has put together a trailer showing us what it might be like if Herzog directed Ant-Man, and things definitely get existential. Watch the Werner Herzog Ant-Man trailer after the jump! Read More »
