Every time a new Marvel Studios film comes out, there’s an influx of stories surrounding the film, from how it effects the future of the Marvel cinematic universe to easter eggs and more. The latest release is Ant-Man, and we’ve certainly run the gamut of stories surrounding the tiny superhero.
There have been Ant-Man easter eggs, examination of credits scenes, and even talk about who may or may not return for Ant-Man 2. Now we’ve got an Ant-Man sweded trailer, giving a quaint, homemade makeover to the big budget blockbusters, and it’s simultaneously adorable and impressive. Watch below! Read More »

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.

If you haven’t seen Ant-Man, the latest release from Marvel Studios, it’s worth heading out to theaters to catch. It’s a refreshingly contained story with the right amount of humor, charm and action. And as with any Marvel movie, there are some nice touches for fans of the comic books, including a credits scene that may be a direct response to the overwhelming fan demand for more female characters.
Speaking of female characters, one thing that Ant-Man could have used a little more of was The Wasp, the female counterpart to Hank Pym’s (Michael Douglas) original iteration of Ant-Man. We’ll likely get to see more of the character in future Marvel movies, but in the meantime, some concept are has surfaced showing off alternate costume designs for the characters.
See the new Wasp concept art below, but beware of some spoilers in the text as we discuss the heroine in the movie. 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 »
With the release of Ant-Man less than a month away, we’ve already seen quite a bit from the second Marvel Studios film hitting theaters this summer. Paul Rudd looks great in the Ant-Man suit, Corey Stoll‘s Yellowjacket also looks pretty slick, and Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lily will also have plenty to do in the tiny superhero’s first big screen adventure.
But there’s also a whole supporting cast that we haven’t really seen much of in the marketing materials for the film so far. But some new photos from Ant-Man have surfaced giving us a better look at Michael Pena (End of Watch), Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire), David Dastmalchian (The Dark Knight, Prisoners) and rapper turned actor T.I. (Identity Thief). Check out the Ant-Man supporting cast after the jump! 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 »
