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.

‘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 »

‘Ant-Man’ TV Spot Teases Avenger Cameo

Paul Rudd in Ant-Man

In the last Ant-Man trailer, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) suggested calling in the Avengers. In a new Ant-Man TV spot, an Avenger actually shows up. Rumors of an Ant-Man Avengers cameo have been circulating for a while now, and the latest footage finally confirms it. Find out who it is after the jump. (Spoilers ahead, if you consider the cameo a spoiler.) Read More »

Ant-Man duo

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 »

Paul Rudd farting

In Marvel’s latest feature film Ant-Man, our titular hero has the power to shrink down to the size of an ant, not to mention being able to communicate with the little insects, and also use their impressive strength. But the film’s star, Paul Rudd, has another super power, but it’s pretty gross.

In a recent interview, the star of Anchorman and This is 40 simply couldn’t stop farting. The interviewer tried to move on, but giggling and “tooting” continued, making for a rather unique experience in movie promotion. It sounds gross, but it’s actually hilarious. Watch Paul Rudd farting during an Ant-Man interview below! Read More »

Ant-Man set visit

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 »
