Ant-Man and the Wasp Trailer #1 (2018) *Real Heroes: Not Actual Size*

With Black Panther, MCU issue #18, almost upon us, and Avengers: Infinity War, MCU issue #19, ready to dominate the summer in May, today Marvel released the first official trailer for issue #20: Ant-Man and the Wasp.  Some people consider Ant-Man the slightest of the MCU movies, but I really loved it and it set a good foundation that this trailer is clearly building on by bringing in one of the best female characters in the Marvel Universe in The Wasp.  Also joining the cast this time are Walter Goggins, Michelle Pfieffer (as the original Wasp), and Laurence Fishburne.  It looks like the villain will be The Ghost, which is a fantastic character that I’m looking forward to seeing how they utilize on screen.

The film will clearly deal with Ant-Man’s fallout from his choices in Civil War, and the telegraphed storyline from the first film that the original Wasp may still be alive and trapped in a subatomic universe.  It’s funny, it builds on the original, and I’m looking forward to seeing Scott Lang, Hank Pym, and the rest of this corner of the MCU in July.

Trailer Time: Captain America – Civil War Trailer #1 *Divided We Fall*

So Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. walked onto the set of Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night with a HUGE surprise.  Marvel has released the first full trailer for Captain America: Civil War and, oh my holy nerd!  May 6, 2016, people, Phase 3 of the MCU starts with a bang (and if that weren’t enough we finally get Spidey and Black Panther!).  Official poster and synopsis below.  Oh, go ahead, watch it again (Lord knows I did).  Happy Thanksgiving, geeks!!!

Captain America, Iron Man, Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans


Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps—one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark’s surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability. Get ready to pick a side and join the nonstop action playing out on two fronts when Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War opens in U.S. theaters on May.

Ant-Man Blu Ray Release Date and Details!!

Disney and Marvel have released the details of special features the Ant-Man Blu Ray which will be hitting stores on December 8th (available digitally November 17th).  No Marvel One-Shot again, which is a disappointment.  Those little one-shots were getting to be worth the price of the blu ray alone.  The last one pretty much swayed my opinion on Iron Man 3 from “waste” to “ok”.  Ant-Man was a nice surprise, given the turmoil in its production and it’ll be fun to see how they did the size-changing chaos that made the film another unique entry in the MCU.  Details on the disc features below from comingsoon.net.

Marvel Announces Ant-Man 2!!! New MCU Phase 3 Schedule!!!

Paul Rudd, Scott Lang, Ant-Man

The already-bulging Phase 3 got a little bit bigger today as Marvel announced that Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne will be returning in 2018’s Ant-Man & the Wasp.  Far from being the disaster fans were fearing it would be, Ant-Man was a fun, comedy/heist film and it will be great to see Evangeline Lilly don The Wasp costume.  As it did earlier this year when it shuffled everything around to accommodate the solo Spider-Man movie, Phase 3 has been bumped around with Black Panther moving forward and Captain Marvel moving back to 2019.

Avengers Infinity War

Kevin Feige has recently been quoted as saying that the classic Avengers’ story comes to a conclusion post-Infinity War, but the MCU marches on.  I take that to mean we’ll see Cap, Iron Man, Hulk, Hawkeye, and Black Widow retired for awhile and newer characters like Black Panther, Vision, Scarlet Witch, Spider-Man, and others take the lead for awhile (though we all know the old reliables will return recast eventually).  Marvel also announced three untitled movies for 2020, proving that the soon-to-be most prolific franchise in moviedom is not slowing down any time soon.  Here is the revised MCU release schedule (now up to 12 FILMS):

May 6th – Captain America: Civil War
November 4th – Doctor Strange

May 5th – Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2
July 28th – Spider-Man
November 3rd – Thor: Ragnarok

February 16th – Black Panther
May 4th – Avengers: Infinity War Part 1
July 6th – Ant-Man & the Wasp

March 8th – Captain Marvel
May 3rd – Avengers: Infinity War Part 2
July 12th – The Inhumans

May 1 – Untitled Release
July 10th – Untitled Release
November 6th – Untitled Release
Marvel Phase 3

My Favorite Scene: Ant-Man (2015) “Ant-Man vs. Falcon”

Now that we’re 12 films into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, we’ve got such a large character base that literally anyone can pop up in anyone’s film.  The film universe has that connected feeling that Marvel Comics do.  The latest entry, Ant-Man, got a surprise cameo from Anthony Mackie (who just owns Falcon) when Scott had to break into the Avengers’ new digs.  Not only is it a great fight, but it’s pretty hysterical and will have repercussions for Captain America: Civil War.  This film was so much fun.Paul Rudd, Scott Lang, Ant-Man
