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

Movie Review: Ant-Man (2015) *Phase 2 Closes on a High Note!*

Paul Rudd, Scott Lang, Ant-Man

Let’s be honest: we’ve been worried about Ant-Man.  It isn’t enough that the hero is difficult (borderline silly) to seriously segue into the already-crowded Marvel Cinematic Universe.  Ant-Man had a tortured near-deacade long journey to the big screen, a directorial change at the last minute, serious rewrites and cast a comedian with no action movies in his resume in its lead role.  Let me allay your fears: Ant-Man is good.  It’s a fun, funny heist movie that deftly brings Ant-Man into the MCU in a big way.  Marvel’s made another smart, unique film that ends its second phase on a light note before the looming specter of Captain America: Civil War and Phase 3.

There are TWO End Credits Scenes in Ant-Man!!

The second phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will close tomorrow with the release of Ant-Man.  The film has been getting decent reviews, which given the disaster fans we’re bracing themselves for, is going to be just fine should that be the case (Rotten Tomatoes and I are not seeing eye to eye these days).  Fans heading out should know that there are TWO end credits scenes, both important to the future of the MCU.  One at mid-credits; one at the very end.  So, unlike Avengers 2, keep yourself planted in the seat until the last credit rolls.
