Just in time to start your weekend comes the Captain America: Civil War blooper reel. There’s plenty to laugh about as just about everyone flubs a line sometime. Paul Bettney‘s Vision getting tongue-tied is absolutely fabulous. Apparently Paul Rudd is the consummate professional on set because he didn’t make the blooper cut although one would expect there are more bloopers on the DVD box set. Take a quick break from your Friday at work to have a laugh, your boss won’t mind, he’s too busy working up the nerve to ask you to work this weekend. (more…)

The Russo Brothers are amping up their Social Media presence with some live video on Facebook. This time around the creative pair behind Captain America: Civil War have a reaction video of Chris Evans as he watches the movie for the first time. As they say, showing the star the final cut for the movie for the first time can stressful, what if Evans doesn’t like it and throws a fit? What if he wants huge changes? Find out how it all went after the jump. (more…)

Civil War’s latest trailer made huge waves in the global nerd scene. Coupled with Robert Downey Junior‘s recent consideration of giving up his iconic Iron Man role means that Captain America: Civil War needs to give us the biggest, meanest, most over-the-top MCU pow-wow yet. The cast and creative team seem to be taking all this performance anxiety rather well, all things considered, what with their recent teases and some of the behind-the-scenes hijinks that we’ve been hearing about…

Ant-Man-Rumor-Casting-Evangeline-Lilly

Evangeline Lilly, the center of everyone’s favorite love triangle on that much missed show of the early aughts, Lost, may be on track to receive her own solo Wasp film.  Lilly’s Wasp will join Paul Rudd’s Antman in summer 2018 for the Ant-Man sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp, but writer Adam McKay has indicated that may not be the last we see of the Marvel heroine.  It all depends, it would seem, upon the success of the upcoming sequel.  2015’s Ant-Man was another success for the Marvel franchise, bringing in a worldwide total of $519.3 and sitting well with both critics and the general population.  But will returns like that be enough to get Wasp her own movie?

Toys and play-sets from mega movie properties will see the films core characters and battle scenes make it to plastic form, obviously. One thing toy tie-ins often also do… is spoil a movie surprise. Toys are made and released months ahead of a film premiere; with the purpose of getting toys in the hands of kids (and collectors) to market the movie. So that being the case, there’s really no avoiding it. Still, that doesn’t make it any easier when you’re perusing the aisle of a toy store, see some toy set that catches your eye… and boom… spoiler!

Such as the case with Marvel’s  latest super hero mega fest – Captain America Civil War. An upcoming LEGO set depicts a truly transformative reveal… and here we are complaining about spoilers, but sometimes we just can’t help ourselves. So click away to check it out if you just have to know before hand. (more…)

There are some movies that, as you watch, you think to yourself “the blooper reel is going to be hysterical.” Thanks in large part to the up-tempo dance moves of Paul Rudd, Ant-Man has proven to be one of those movies. Rudd has a constant aura of goofiness radiating about him at seemingly all times, so his timing of mid-shoot to break out the moves isn’t so out of character.  And judging by the way the rest of the cast kept getting their groove on, it seems his vibe was contagious!

Ant Man’s paltry opening weekend box office numbers of $58M, which comes at the lower end of the scale we’ve come to expect from Marvel over the last few years ex. Thor($65.7M) and Captain America: The First Avenger ($65.1M), it still managed to leave fans abuzz in conversation due to the film’s post-credits scene. This along with some confirmation straight from Kevin Feige has us all piecing together what else we can expect from Marvel in Phase 3 of their cinematic adventures. (Spoilers Ahead)

‘Ant-Man’ Credits Scenes Explained

Maybe you’ve seen Ant-Man by now and have lingering questions about exactly what goes down in the mid-credits and post-credits scenes.  Maybe you haven’t seen the film yet and would like some more knowledge to arm yourself with going in.  Maybe you’re like me and have seen the movie twice already and just think it’s really, really good (in my review of Ant-Man, I mentioned that these two scenes exist, but kept it spoiler-free).  Whatever the case, here’s some deeper info you might not know about the “secret” Ant-Man scenes – and it should go without saying here, but you’re entering MAJOR SPOILER TERRITORY, so consider yourself warned.

I know what you’re thinking – that’s a mighty bold statement you’re making there in the title, sailor.  Now hold up, Guardians of the Galaxy and The Avengers, I’mma let you finish… but Ant-Man just may truly be one of the greatest Marvel films of all time.  Of all time!

WARNING: Mild spoilers ahead – I did my best to keep quiet about the big stuff, but some parts of the film required a little explanation in the review.

There’s a scene in the latest Ant-Man trailer where Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) is giving Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) a pep talk to encourage him to suit up as the insectoid hero. Lang’s responses is that Pym’s dire straits seems more like a job for the Avengers than a new Ant-Man. Well, one out of six ain’t bad. It’s not exactly a state secret, and the appearance of the Avenger in question can be spoiled as easily as looking at Ant-Man’s IMDb page, but if you’d rather not know, then you’re advised to look away from this post, because the following Ant-Man TV spot pretty handily ruins what looks like a cool cameo in the upcoming Marvel Studios‘ film.
