BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Paul Rudd wasn't entirely sure what to expect when he signed up with Marvel, but as his role in the MCU continues to grow, he's on board for whatever comes his way.
hile Marvelís Ant-Man was not the smash hit that weíve come to expect from the MCU, the movie was a solid success with both critics and fans. Whether or not you thought Ant-Man was fantastic or forgettable, the movie still has problems.
The merchandise game that is always a big part of any major movie release can be interesting. In order to produce everything that fans are going to want, and have it ready when the movie comes out, it has to be produced months in advance.
Thereís an X-factor in the upcoming Captain America: Civil War that most of us havenít really talked about yet. Thereís been a new addition to the MCU since the last big team-up movie, Ant-Man.
The MCU concluded Phase Two this year with two movies, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man. During those adventures, some great new characters were introduced. Take a look at who we picked as this yearís best newbies.
In a cinematic world where there are talking raccoons from space and giant green rage monsters, somehow a movie about a really, really small hero seems silly, a fact, among others, pointed out by the new Ant-Man Honest Trailer.
Scott Lang is the hero in the movie Ant-Man. Having said that, heís not an entirely heroic figure to begin with, and a new deleted scene shows how he used his super suit for some less than noble ends.
Easter Eggs and references to other Marvel films are as much a part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe as super powers and diabolical villains. However, the need to remove scenes from a film are a standard part of movie making.
Will Waspís costume look like this? Will she already get an upgrade? It seems like everyoneís costume changes from film to film, but we havenít yet seen Evangeline Lilly IN the suit. Soon enough.
In a movie called Ant-Man there was really no way around the need to make the filmís insects important characters in their own right. Front and center in this endeavor was Antony, Scott Langís trusty steed.
Because of the two-dimensional medium of the comic book a characterís look was the single most important aspect of their creation. This led to some of the most iconic characters in the history of fiction. Now those unique looks are being translated to film.
Ant-Man and the Wasp will be the first Marvel movie to feature a duo as the main leads, putting Wasp on equal level as Ant-Man just like in their old comic book stories, and Peyton Reed wouldnít have it any other way.
While this past summerís Ant-Man was not the blockbuster that many have come to expect from Marvel Studios it was still a big success. Earlier this year Marvel officially announced plans to follow up on the Paul Rudd vehicle with Ant-Man And The Wasp.
There exists a great deal of potential in Marvel Studiosí upcoming Ant-Man And The Wasp. Not only will it wind up being the companyís first film with a titular female character, and the first to feature eponymous co-leads, but there is the opportunity to build upon what worked in Ant-Man, and work to avoid what didnít.
Ant-Man has still been making strides hauling in the big bucks overseas, and thatís helped it significantly, to the point that it will soon reach this big milestone.
With Ant-Man and The Wasp coming in 2018, a new primary antagonist is called for Scott and Hope to take on that will be a worthy successor to Yellowjacket. Here are the malevolent folks Marvel should take into consideration.
Though Ant-Man and the Wasp was just recently announced, Marvel isn't wasting any time getting the ball rolling and they're already in talks with a director, and it's one that will be familiar to fans.
One downside to Marvel having its Phase 3 plans on the table for all to see is that when the studio wants to make changes, it has to become headline news. For example, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) wasnít supposed to have a second movie on the docket for some timeÖ
It was a carefully guarded secret. Then, it showed up in a few of the early commercials. Now, the fantastic Ant-Man fight scene between Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Sam Wilson, aka Falcon, can be seen online.
There were many great moments featured in the footage that debuted yesterday during the D23 Expo, but nothing in the reel topped the final scene featuring Paul Ruddís Scott Lang. The moment served to only make us more excited about the upcoming blockbuster, but it also got us thinking: what exactly is Ant-Manís role going to be in the movie?
