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 »

Production on Captain America: Civil War just wrapped over the weekend, and while some footage from the film was recently shown at D23 Expo, I wouldn’t count on the first official trailer for the Marvel Studios sequel arriving until later this year, maybe with Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
In the meantime, there have been a lot of rumors floating around, including word on which superheroes align themselves with Captain America (Chris Evans) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) when they end up at odds. The aforementioned footage from D23 essentially confirmed those rumors, but in case you needed more substantial evidence, some Captain America Civil War promo art has surfaced showing each of the teams, but beware of spoilers below.

For a Marvel movie, Ant-Man was pretty self-contained. It mostly kept to its own tiny corner of the universe, with its own colorful cast and own potentially world-destroying problems. The one major exception was a scene midway through the movie, when Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) sneaks into Avengers HQ.
His subsequent encounter with Sam Wilson a.k.a. Falcon (Anthony Mackie) is one of the film’s highlights — a playful tie-in that does a great job of showing off Ant-Man’s unique abilities. While most of us have already seen Ant-Man at this point, it still makes for an entertaining rewatch. See the Ant-Man vs Falcon clip after the jump. Read More »
Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War is currently shooting in Germany with one week of production left, and while Marvel Studios stayed home from San Diego Comic Con International 2015, they did show up to Disney’s fan convention D23 Expo 2015 with Captain America (Chris Evans, who got a standing ovation), Falcon (Anthony Mackie), and perhaps most importantly, footage from the 2016 release.

With the release of Ant-Man earlier this month, we’re officially done with releases from Marvel Studios for 2015. Despite the trouble behind the scenes before the film started shooting, with Peyton Reed replacing Edgar Wright as director, it actually turned out to be a pretty decent comic book flick.
But one fan thinks that movie could have been infinitely better if famed documentarian and Jack Reacher villain Werner Herzog was behind the camera instead. Patrick H. Willems, the man behind Wes Anderson’s Uncanny X-Men, has put together a trailer showing us what it might be like if Herzog directed Ant-Man, and things definitely get existential.

Last weekend, the prequel series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp arrived on Netflix, flashing back to a time before the events of the Sundance selected cult favorite comedy, but with the exact same cast playing younger versions of themselves despite having aged almost 25 years.
Well, today a new behind the scenes documentary called Hurricane of Fun: The Making of Wet Hot American Summer has been released going behind the scenes of Wet Hot American Summer as it was being shot in the year 2000. It’s an hour-long look at the making of the movie with the entire cast appearing on candidly recorded home video, and it looks like a fantastic and entertaining time capsule from the trailer that was just unveiled.

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 »
