Ant-Man 1

Late yesterday, two posts delayed this column. This one with images from Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy and this video that they all came from. Visit those links for SURE but, also, Superhero Hype has stills of Edgar Wright's Ant-Man test footage. So there you go too.

Speaking to The Huffington Post, James McAvoy said he's probably wait until a third X-Men movie before starting to act like Patrick Stewart:

I think that may come. I mean, who knows? Who knows where it's going to go? That may come in the third movie but definitely not in this movie. We're not in the same place that we were in the first movie with Charles — a very different place from there. But we're also still on a very different place from where Patrick was in the other movies.

Here's a brand new, Iron Man 3 TV spot centric to The Mandarin.
