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 »

The new Ant-Man trailer will be online tomorrow, Monday April 13, but you can see some new Ant-Man footage right now thanks to a thirty-second trailer tease.

If you watched the Ant-Man trailer all the way to the end, you probably noticed they urged people to pick up the upcoming issue of Entertainment Weekly for more information on the film. The cover is already out there; now, so is the magazine, which includes some new images and information. The images aren’t major (though there is a cool Yellowjacket concept image that’s sure to pop online soon) but the info about the movie is. Kevin Feige talks about the Edgar Wright split, Rudd discusses how much of Wright’s work is still in the film, and one revelation includes how the shrinking scenes are done.

Ant-Man

Ant-Man and Fantastic Four open within three weeks of each other this summer so their post-production schedules are pretty much on the same track. We just got an Ant-Man trailer, and should get a Fantastic Four trailer during the Super Bowl if rumors turn out true. Plus, behind the scenes, each film just officially announced a key member of the creative team: the composer.

On Fantastic Four, which is directed by Josh Trank, they’ve hired Marco Beltrami. He’s no stranger to the superhero genre having scored The Wolverine, Hellboy and Blade II. Recently, he did the score for Snowpiercer but is probably best known for his work on the Scream movies.

For Ant-Man, directed by Peyton ReedChristophe Beck will provide the score. He too has worked in the superhero genre before, with Red and R.I.P.D, but has also worked with Reed before on Bring it On and recently did Edge of Tomorrow and Frozen. Read more about the Ant-Man and Fantastic Four composers below. Read More »

The Ant-Man trailer premiered during the pilot episode of Marvel’s Agent Carter but you can watch right now, right here.  Read More »

‘Ant-Man’ Trailer Should Be Released Soon

Peyton Reed directing Ant-Man

Marvel Studios is pretty great at giving fans a tease at their work as early as possible. In some cases, thanks to Comic Con, we’ve seen footage from their movies just one day into filming. So if director Peyton Reed finished production on Ant-Man on December 5, the fact a trailer was classified on December 23 kind of makes sense. A trailer classification usually means it’ll hit the Internet within a week or two. In the case of Ant-Man, because of the holidays, odds are that won’t happen until 2015. But the release will probably be very early in 2015. So what’s the occasion? When and where will you see it? Read about the Ant-Man trailer below. Read More »
