Marvel Studios is currently in a holding pattern as the coronavirus pandemic continues to keep the United States in a chokehold. There’s been a longer hiatus between the movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe than was initially planned thanks to movie theaters being closed and the release of Black Widow being delayed. But there are still big plans for the next era of the MCU, and we mean that literally and figuratively when it comes to the Ant-Man franchise.
Director Peyton Reed is returning for Ant-Man 3 (or maybe Ant-Man and the Wasp 2), and while he’s not able to divulge any groundbreaking pieces of information about the developing sequel, he did say that it would be “a much bigger, more sprawling movie” than the previous two installments in the franchise.

After Star Wars, Ghostbusters and Wreck-It Ralph came to the virtual reality experience known as The VOID in previous years, ILMxLAB and Marvel Studios are bringing the Marvel Cinematic Universe to life with an Avengers VR experience of their own.
Avengers: Damage Control will let fans step into the MCU to team up with Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, and the first trailer has arrived, revealing what appear to be Wakandan vibranium Iron Man suits that you’ll be wearing within the Avengers VR experience. Check it out below! Read More »
Ant-Man and the Wasp isn’t a movie filled with important universe-altering events. There were plenty of those in Avengers: Infinity War, and director Peyton Reed made the smart decision of not trying to compete with that gargantuan effort; instead, he made a smaller scale film that’s easily one of the funniest films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
But one of the ways the movie does tie in to the studio’s larger tapestry is in its mid-credits scene. In a new interview, star Evangeline Lilly has revealed that the Ant-Man and the Wasp original ending was slightly different than the one we saw in theaters, and she’s “grateful” the version they shot didn’t make it into the final cut.

The last episode of LOST aired on ABC on May 23, 2010. That was more than eight years ago, but people are still fiercely divided about whether or not the mega-popular drama series came to a satisfying conclusion. (For the record, I still love it.)
But if you’ve ever been curious to have the LOST finale explained by actress Evangeline Lilly, who played scrappy criminal Kate Austen in all six seasons of the series, you’re in luck: Lilly took the stage at Dragon Con this past weekend and answered a fan question that involved her laying out an excellent interpretation of the show’s controversial ending.

Ant-Man and the Wasp finally gave one of the female superheroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe a proper leading role, with Evangeline Lilly suiting up as Hope Van Dyne, the more capable and experienced insect-inspired partner of Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang. However, just because she’s a big part of the Ant-Man movies, don’t expect the Wasp to spin-off into a movie of her own.

It should come as no surprise that Ant-Man and the Wasp topped the box office this weekend, and that it’s another sequel that has surpassed its predecessor in the opening weekend.
Ant-Man and the Wasp raked in $76 million at the domestic box office, coming in under the projections that had it making more than Doctor Strange‘s opening weekend of $85 million. It’s also the lowest opening for a Marvel Studios sequel, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing since the original opened to $57.2 million back in 2015. Read More »

Evangeline Lilly has become a pivotal part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, stealing the show in Ant-Man and now getting promoted to double-billing for Ant-Man and the Wasp. But it almost never happened — if not for Peter Jackson.
