ant-man and the wasp genre

“Superhero fatigue” is a term that’s been on the tip of everyone’s tongues for the past decade, but for the most part, Marvel has managed to avoid that condemnation. Why? Because the comic book studio has put a genre twist on their standard formula for nearly every film: Captain America: The Winter Soldier was a political thriller, Guardians of the Galaxy flaunted its trippy space opera inspirations, Spider-Man: Homecoming recalled John Hughes teen comedies.

The first Ant-Man received the genre film treatment with a superhero twist on the heist movie, and its sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp promises to dip into a genre that Marvel has never touched before: the romantic-comedy. I mean, when you cast Paul Rudd, how could you not make a rom-com?

night of too many stars

HBO’s Night of Too Many Stars, a live benefit that supports programs that aid people with autism, lived up to its name, using its star-studded line-up to tease spoilers for the highly anticipated Star Wars: Episode IX and Ant-Man and the Wasp.

The first came in the form of an auction, in which Episode IX director J.J. Abrams — returning to the franchise after reviving it with Star Wars: The Force Awakens — sold details of the plot to the highest bidder, only to be drowned out by spoilers for Hot Tub Time Machine 3 and Sharknado 5. The second is as spoiler-y as you can get on the set of a Marvel movie, with Ant-Man and the Wasp star Paul Rudd answering questions about I Love You, Man before slipping in some details on the Ant-Man sequel.

New Ant-Man Suit

A few days ago, in honor of Jack Kirby’s birthday, a photo from the set of Ant-Man and the Wasp gave us our first look at Evangeline Lilly suited up as the latter of those two titular Marvel superheroes. At that point, we had yet to see Paul Rudd back in action as the superhero we last saw turn into Giant-Man in the middle of a big brawl in Captain America: Civil War before being arrested and placed in The Raft by the government. But that changes today.

Thanks to a video posted to the official Facebook page for The Avengers, we have our first look at the new Ant-Man suit that Paul Rudd will be wearing in a future film. However, because of the nature of the video itself, we’re not sure if the suit is one we’ll see in Ant-Man and the Wasp, The Avengers: Infinity War or The Avengers 4. In fact, it could be all three of those movies. Read More »

Randall Park - Ant-Man and the Wasp Cast

Though production on Ant-Man and the Wasp is slated to begin soon, we don’t know much about the sequel so far. Paul Rudd is returning as the Ant-Man himself, Scott Lang, and he’ll be joined by Evangeline Lilly suited up as The Wasp on the big screen for the first time. Plus, Michael Douglas is returning as The Wasp’s father, former Ant-Man and scientist Hank Pym, and Michael Peña is returning as Scott’s criminal buddy Luis. Now a new cast member has entered the mix, and the character he’s playing raises some questions.

Randall Park, who can currently be seen on the ABC sitcom Fresh Off the Boat, has been cast as SHIELD agent Jimmy Woo, a character who has been part of Marvel Comics since the 1950s, getting involved with various superheroes and villains over the years. But wasn’t SHIELD completely disbanded after Captain America: The Winter Soldier? Read More »

Edgar Wright Won't Watch Ant-Man

Even though Ant-Man turned out to be pretty good when it arrived in theaters back in 2015, there was a time when the project was a point of concern at Marvel Studios. After developing and writing the project for eight years, writer/director Edgar Wright departed the film over creative differences. Recently, the filmmaker said diplomatically to Variety, “I wanted to make a Marvel movie but I don’t think they really wanted to make an Edgar Wright movie.”

In a new interview, Edgar Wright was asked if he took the time to see how Ant-Man turned out after he left and it was handed it off to director Peyton Reed. The answer is no, and Wright can’t even bring himself to watch the trailer. Read More »

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later Trailer

Netflix brought back Wet Hot American Summer for a series revival back in 2015 after development of a sequel to the 2001 Sundance comedy hit was happening for years. Instead of making good upon the promise of a 10-year reunion teased at the end of the movie, the series went back to the first day at Camp Firewood, which was all the more ridiculous simply because it had a cast of actors and actress in their 30s and 40s playing teenagers. But now the reunion we’ve all been waiting for is finally coming.

Wet Hot American Summer: Ten Years Later is a new eight episode continuation of the goofy camp comedy that brings back (almost) all of the original cast members again as we flash forward to their lives in 1991. It looks just as insane as the prequel series was, and it even has some new cast members joining the fun.
