BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Marvel has never shied away from using humor in the Marvel Cinematic Universe films. However, when they cast Paul Rudd in the lead for Ant-Man it was obvious that Marvel was looking for a more comedic tone than we had seen in previous films.
While Scott Lang’s future following Ant-Man and Captain America: Civil War is uncertain, according to Paul Rudd, we’ll be seeing a lot of him in the MCU in the coming years.
Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang doesn’t have any superpowers on his own apart from the suit that lets him shrink down to the size of an ant. But he can fly…he just needs his trusty steed by his side.
The latest Ant-Man TV spot suggests that the diminutive blockbuster will be just as epic as its predecessors.
Ant-Man is blowing up! No, really. That's kind of his thing, to change his size. Ahead of the film's release this July, Marvel released a batch of new photos from their next superhero extravaganza.
When Ant-Man shrinks to the size of, well, an ant, everything looks huge, including bullets.
The comic-inspired costume that Paul Rudd wears in the upcoming Ant-Man seems to be controversy-free. However, some notable critics regarding the unitards’s utilitarian value happen to be the people who created the getup. Apparently, a gaping, potentially fatal flaw was left in the design for the sake of aesthetics for the would-be Avengers team member.
With only a few months left till the highly anticipated Ant-Man arrives in theaters, we are slowly putting the pieces together in what to expect. Now, big players in the cast and crew have opened up on the film in an exposing interview. Specifically, director Peyton Reed has teased an appearance from Earth’s Mightiest including Anthony Mackie’s Falcon and other Avengers.
Evangeline Lilly previously commented Ant-Man's changes of script and direction after Edgar Wright’s departure, but now she’s claimed that the main difference is that the new script is far more American.
Marvel likes to throw us curveballs. The one for Ant-Man, however, could possibly mean the inclusion of a surprise villain to battle both the size-shrinking Scott Lang and the rampaging Yellowjacket.
For now, what we know about Ant-Man is that it will be the final movie in Marvel’s Phase Two, and it’s going to establish Scott Lang (Rudd), Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) as vital components of Marvel’s history… and the history of The Avengers. Find out how when the movie opens in theaters on July 17.
Marvel’s secrets are not safe. Intrepid reports have been breaking through the firewall and security details to gain all the information they can on the upcoming movies, and, for better or worse, we already know quite a bit about what’s coming for us down the road. But we’d never expect to see someone like Peyton Reed, the director of Ant-Man, to spoil his own movie.
Now that Marvel has unleashed Avengers: Age of Ultron unto the world and continues its worldwide box-office domination, the studio behind Earth’s Mightiest Heroes can focus on their next big (ahem, small) film: Ant-Man. A new poster for the size-shrinking hero has arrived.
As the connected cinematic universe of Marvel Studios gets set to unveil its latest crown jewel with Avengers: Age of Ultron next week, the film that will immediately follow in the continuity, Ant-Man is still in the odd position of having to explain its place in the grander scheme. This is a fact not lost on star, Paul Rudd, as he attempts to illustrate where the film falls, genre-wise.
Marvel’s Ant-Man is becoming kind of a big deal, at least in terms of its marketing. Movie posters for the upcoming superhero film starring Paul Rudd have been popping up all over the place, but in new and seriously unexpected ways.
We got a brief glimpse of the new Ant-Man trailer last night during the MTV Movie Awards/Game of Thrones season 5 premiere (depending on which you chose to watch), and now the full footage has been released online.
We see plenty of scenes of Ant-Man and Yellowjacket fighting it out in numerous locations. One involves a helicopter. But one involves a model train set in what looks like a little girl’s bedroom set, and there is a visual joke involving Thomas the Tank Engine that might be one of the funniest things I’ve seen in a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie.
As is common for many major blockbusters, Ant-Man recently underwent reshoots, and as a result, fans will see a shift in protagonist Scott Lang that reportedly draws the character closer to how the original director Edgar Wright wrote him.
Anyone the least bit familiar with the character in the upcoming Ant-Man would tell you that a potential big screen superhero story would likely be filled with comedy. Well, according to one of the film’s co-stars, not only is the film filled with lightheartedly hilarious moments, it may even remind moviegoers of another Marvel movie that had fans "hooked on a feeling."
Ant-Man will include many lighthearted moments interspersed among the superhero and heist elements. One of these humorous scenes will be a sparring match between Scott Lang and Hank Pym’s daughter Hope Van Dyne.
