the wasp

Yes, its true that you do get to see which involves Janet Van Dyne’s version of The Wasp in Ant-Man, via a flashback sequence (I won’t say anything more here). But the real question everyone is wondering is when will we see Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) , daughter of the original Ant-Man Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and the original Wasp Janet Van Dyne, put on The Wasp outfit as she does in the comics? I asked Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and actually got an answer.

Ant-Man viral backstory

Ant-Man is a pretty unique Marvel movie in a lot of ways, but one of the ways it’s just like all the others are the end-credits sequences. Ant-Man has two, and both seem to have some pretty big implications for the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

But in following with the grand tradition of Marvel credits scenes, they might be more confusing than intriguing to those who aren’t so well versed in Marvel mythos. So after the jump, we’ll break down exactly what the Ant-Man credits scenes are, and what they mean.

As common sense would suggest, spoilers follow for Ant-ManRead More »

‘Ant-Man’ – What Did You Think?

Ant-Man water in bath tub

It’s been years in the making, over a decade in truth, but Marvel’s Ant-Man is on the big screen this weekend. Kickstarted by Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish in 2003 and ultimately directed by Peyton Reed with Paul Rudd starring, the film acts as the final chapter in Marvel’s “phase two” of universe building. In fact, the film is something like an intermission for the great forward push in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with connections to recent films, but also a structure and tone that is more akin to Iron Man than anything else.

Now that you’ve had a chance to see the film, we’d love to hear what you thought. Sound off on the highs and lows of Ant-Man in the comments below, where spoilers are encouraged. Read More »

Peyton Reed Ant-Man interview

A couple weeks ago I got a chance to sit down with director Peyton Reed and talk about his new film Ant-Man. I’ve been a fan of Reed for a while now, from his fun 2000 comedy Bring It On (which was basically Pitch Perfect with Cheerleading) to his work within the Back to the Future franchise (he was involved in the Universal Studios ride, the animated series, and even directed the behind the scenes documentaries for the sequels). Here are some of the things I talked to Peyton Reed about:

  • His first attempt trying to direct a Marvel film in 2003 with a Fantastic Four adaptation that never happened
  • Ant-Man looks like it has the most VFX shots out of any of the Marvel films, But it does’t
  • How they made the microscopic scenes so photorealistic
  • What he believes he brought to the movie that wasn’t in Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish‘s draft
  • Why other Marvel characters were added to the story (possible spoiler warning, although its shown in tv commercials and trailers)
  • How Peyton ended up doing voice work on episodes of Beavis and Butthead
  • Will he be involved in any of the Back to the Future 30th Anniversary festivities
  • How Did Marty McFly influence Ant-Man

You can read about all of that and much more in my Peyton Reed Ant-Man interview, after the jump.
