Ant-Man MCU

One of the joys of the Marvel Cinematic Universe is that everything is connected, at least in theory. But some superheroes within it are more connected than others. While Black Widow seems to be friends with pretty much everyone, for instance, Star-Lord is floating around the galaxy doing his own thing. And despite the fact that Ant-Man’s already met most of the Avengers in Captain America: Civil War, Ant-Man and the Wasp director Peyton Reed says he’d like to keep that franchise in “its own little corner” of the MCU.  Read More »

Ant-Man and the Wasp

We’re trying to tread carefully while writing about Captain America: Civil War. There’s plenty of story in the Marvel project that the trailers and TV spots have yet to spoil. If you’re excited for the film and want to know absolutely nothing else about the story until it hits theaters, then be careful what you read over the next few weeks.

While there aren’t any massive spoilers ahead, since this part of Captain America: Civil War has sadly already been revealed in various toys on shelves now, we do discuss a great action moment that you might want to wait and see for yourself. Read Feige’s comments on the film and Ant-Man and the Wasp at your own discretion.

ant-man 2 genre

Ant-Man is just as much a heist movie as it is a superhero movie. Peyton Reed‘s Marvel origin story didn’t feel like most comic book movies because of its crime caper tropes. The sequel, however, will not return to the heist genre.

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 »

Ant-Man sequel

This year audiences embraced a hero named Ant-Man. I imagine some folks at Marvel were worried if moviegoers would accept a miniature crime fighter with such a refreshingly uncool name — and the bizarre power of commanding ants — but the film was a critical and commercial hit, especially overseas. After the success of the movie, director Peyton Reed can take even more chances with the Ant-Man sequel, and he plans on doing just that.

After the jump, learn what Reed has in store for Ant-Man and the Wasp.

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.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:

Terry Gilliam Ant-Man

It’s not surprising people like Ant-Man. It’s a funny, cool, and clever superhero pic that relies more on the conventions of a heist movie than a superhero movie. Director Peyton Reed (Down with Love) also made a Marvel movie that doesn’t feature a massive third act with extras running around and the hero fighting a bunch of CG, faceless bots. For a variety of reasons, Ant-Man is a breath of fresh air, so it isn’t surprising when somebody likes the film. But it is surprising when that somebody is director Terry Gilliam (12 MonkeysTime Bandits).

Gilliam discusses Ant-Man after the jump.
