Though it’s not perfect, the recent release of Ant-Man from Marvel Studios is a refreshing comic book adventure with a different tone, style and a contained story, bringing us one of the more intimate movies from the comic book studio.
One of the reasons it works so well, besides having solid lead Paul Rudd as Scott Lang and Michael Pena to steal every scene he’s in, is Michael Douglas. The veteran actor lends some credibility to the movie and brings some authenticity to the role of Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man. However, fans might be disappointed to hear that as of now there’s no guarantee that we’ll see Michael Douglas in Ant-Man 2.

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 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-Man. Read More »

Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) has had plenty of opportunities to win us over with his warmth, humor, and smarts in the TV spots and trailers released so far for Ant-Man. Now, in the final Ant-Man trailer, he serves up his most inspired idea yet. “I think our first move should be calling the Avengers,” he suggests when Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) warns him of the possibility of mass chaos.
Of course, we already know the Avengers won’t assemble on their behalf — otherwise, this movie would have “Avengers” in the title. Fortunately, it looks like Scott and Hank have a few other tricks up their sleeve. Watch the final Ant-Man trailer after the jump. Read More »

On October 9 2014 I visited my first Marvel set. The film was Ant-Man, Marvel Studios’ latest gamble and the final film in Phase Two of the company’s influential and uber-successful Marvel Cinematic Universe. I mention it was my first Marvel set visit because, like me, Ant-Man represents many firsts for Marvel. It’s the first time they’ve hired a director, Peyton Reed, just weeks before shooting. It’s the first time their central hero, Scott Lang (played by Paul Rudd), has a family. It’s the first time we’ll see a man shrink down to ride on ant. Those are just the tip of the iceberg.
Below, read 65 things we learned over two days — days 37 and 38 of the 74-day shoot — on the Atlanta set of Ant-Man. There’s also info from a day spent at ILM on June 15, 2015. Read More »

There are a lot of things that Marvel Studios does really, really well. Innovative poster design, however, is not one of them. The new Ant-Man poster isn’t terrible, exactly, just very very boring. It’s so boring, even the people on it look bored. If you’ve seen all the other Marvel posters, you’ll already know just what to expect. Check it out after the jump. Read More »
