Ant-Man and the Wasp Trailer Breakdown

This morning brought the first trailer for Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp. Even though there’s plenty of footage in the trailer, which runs just over a minute and a half, we only get a few story details, and none of them include any information on just what kind of villain our new superhero team will be contending with this time. But even so, there were plenty of details to notice, and we’ll run through some of the finer points in our Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer breakdown. Read More »

Unlocked trailer 2

It’s been a long time since the original Bourne trilogy, and terrorism thrillers – even last year’s continuation of that franchise, Jason Bourne – don’t have quite the same appeal that they used to. I don’t know if it’s because we’re too far from the events of September 11, 2001, or if these movies can sometimes feel too fresh because we’re sadly never far enough from the latest devastating attack somewhere in the world, but a low-level B-movie about preventing a terrorist attack doesn’t feel like the norm anymore. And it feels especially weird when when a movie like that, in this case a film called Unlocked, is directed by an acclaimed documentary filmmaker like Michael Apted (the Up series).

When most actors join the Marvel Cinematic Universe, they sign a contract with their own blood, binding their soul to the franchise until they fulfill their number of movies or sacrifice That Which They Love The Most before the statue of Stan Lee hidden in crawlspace under the McGraw Hill Building in New York City. But not Michael Douglas. Oh, no. When the Academy Award-winning living legend signed on to play the aging former superhero Hank Pym in Ant-Man, he only signed on for a single movie, leaving his involvement in the upcoming sequel a big question mark.

Well, it’s time to straighten out that question mark into an exclamation point because Douglas has now confirmed that he’ll be back for Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Ant-Man Honest Trailer

It’s always interesting to see what the Honest Trailer for a good movie chooses to poke fun at, and in the case of Marvel Studios isolated superhero heist movie Ant-Man, that’s exactly what we get to see. As the Ant-Man Honest Trailer points out, against all odds, this movie actually kinda works. But that doesn’t change the fact that it’s basically the exact same plot of Iron Man, but just with a different kind of suit. Read More »

Michael Douglas in Ant-Man 2

There’s a lot of exposition and setup in Ant-Man. Most superhero origin stories take their sweet time getting their hero into the costume, and this Marvel film also had to build up to that third-act heist. One of the reasons why all that information wasn’t a slog to watch was because of Michael Douglas. His charming presence — and his amazing voice — makes the exposition go down smoothly.

Thankfully, he’s returning for Ant-Man 2, titled Ant-Man and the Wasp. Learn more about Michael Douglas returning for Ant-Man 2 after the jump.

How Ant-Man Should Have Ended

Just last week, Marvel Studios officially announced a sequel to this past summer’s Phase Two title Ant-Man. The follow-up will be called Ant-Man and The Wasp, following up the Ant-Man credits teaser revealing Hope Van Dyne (daughter of Hank Pym, played by Evangeline Lilly) would get her own superhero suit to join Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) on his Ant-Man adventures.

But if for some reason you weren’t satisfied with the more isolated, low-key superhero flick, you might find some playful jabs at the movie from the folks at How It Should Have Ended to be right up your alley. They point out some amusing details and shortcomings that the film kind of glosses over, but if you get lost in the film and ignore those elements, then it’s all good, right? Read More »
