Ant-Man

Most Marvel fans know to go expect a few curveballs in their movies, (and to ALWAYS stay during the ending credits!), but was a major Ant-Man spoiler revealed by hands other than Marvel’s? LEGO already has a track record of such leaks; such dropping the Iron Man 3 plot twist with Aldrich Killian, and giving us a view of the Vision before his poster was officially revealed. This time the victim of possible spoilage is Ant-Man, by way of an interesting image for an Ant-Man LEGO set. (more…)

I’m not sure if this a violation of franchise/franchisee confidentiality, but recently Joss Whedon, director of The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron, talked about Ant-Man. Before there was The Avengers, before there was even an Iron Man, Ant-Man was slowly gathering steam under the direction of Edgar Wright, the filmmaker most famous for the zombie comedy Shaun of the Dead. Wright’s years of toil were about to pay-off when, all of a sudden, he was out and Peyton Reed was in as Ant-Man director. Jesus wept, and so did the internet, because we were now robbed of the presumptive awesomeness of Wright’s Ant-Man. But Marvel Studios told us to chill, and now, Whedon himself is saying that from what he’s read, we’re right to miss what would have been Wright’s vision for the character. (more…)

If you think you haven’t gotten a good enough look at Ant-Man yet, prepare to have your understanding of movie marketing adjusted. As promised, Marvel Studios and Disney have released the first full trailer of the upcoming superhero film this morning, and it shows off a lot of action and character moments while setting up pretty effectively the film’s story. Long in development and highly anticipated, Ant-Man will coming out hot on the heels of Avengers: Age of Ultron, which box office experts have reported is expected to make a billion cagillion dollars on its opening weekend. So will Ant-Man be able to captialize on Marvel mania, or will it be the studio’s first real bomb? Perhaps the trailer will give you a hint… (more…)

Oh yeah, Ant-Man comes out in July. Sorry, Ant-Man, but with Avengers: Age of Ultron coming out in a few short weeks, Daredevil hitting the interwebs today, and Agents of S.H.I.E.D. on TV weekly, there’s more than enough Marvel Studios goodness to go around right now. But yes, Ant-Man is coming, and just as the market’s been flooded with new Avengers stuff lately, we’re getting a new insight into the smallest superhero in the biz. Or at least his arch-nemesis. We’ve known for a while that The Strain star Corey Stoll was playing bad guy Darren Cross in the latest superhero adaptation, but now we know what he looks like all dressed up and ready to kill as Yellowjacket.

It’s pretty much a given that once a trailer hits the Internet that fans are going to mess around with it. Perhaps it’s changing something that just didn’t sit right and bugged them about it, or maybe it’s just an exercise in editing to kill some time and learn some new skills. Whatever sparks that desire to make changes, you’ve got to love the act of fandom that drove them to it. This time around YouTube user Patrick (H) Willems decided that Peyton Reed‘s Ant-Man trailer was missing something. Nothing big, just a small detail, in fact this might just be the quickest change one could make. (more…)
