Laurence Fishburne is, by all accounts, a welcome addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. He’s a great actor, and my only complaint with his appearance in Ant-Man and The Wasp is that there wasn’t more of it.
The end credits scenes in Ant-Man and the Wasp are deliberately meant to leave you asking questions—questions that won’t be answered until next summer’s Avengers 4 at the earliest. But the film’s director, Peyton Reed, was able to explain to io9 a few things about the scenes, including how the scenes came about, why…
Most superheroes come prepackaged. Comic book history has long dictated their origins, powers, and adversaries, and most superhero movies simply follow suit. A rare exception comes in the form of Ant-Man and the Wasp’s villain. The character’s origins are muddy and their powers are rather malleable. So director Peyton…
Hannah John-Kamen, who plays Ghost in the film, got a fairly prestigious recommendation on her way to landing the part.
Making a fight scene for a big superhero movie is complicated. Making a fight scene where the heroes are constantly shrinking and growing is even more complicated.
The “long-awaited” Avengers: Infinity War follow-up is here! This dynamic duo’s adventures may not exactly change the Marvel Cinematic Universe as we know it (or maybe they do, who knows?), but there’s still plenty of great stuff to talk about. Spoil away, my pretties! Down below. In the comments. Away from here.
Goofy humor, a smaller scope, father-daughter relationships—there are lots of things that set Ant-Man apart from the other franchises in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In Ant-Man and the Wasp, though, director Peyton Reed wanted to add at least one more thing to the list.
When you see Ant-Man and the Wasp, keep your eyes peeled on the Quantum Realm. It may hold the keys to the future.
Ant-Man and the Wasp was born when director Peyton Reed first saw an early version of Captain America: Civil War. In that film, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) is recruited to help Captain America fight Iron Man, and ends up revealing in addition to shrinking, he can also grow very big. As audience members, we can see that…
When Captain America: Civil War came out, a lot of hardcore fans had a question. We’ve got Ant-Man. Now where’s the Wasp? Now, we know that at one point, that was actually the plan.
Ant-Man and the Wasp moves so fast it feels like it’s over before it begins. Set over the course of about two days in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it’s one of the most propulsive Marvel films to date. Director Peyton Reed’s movie is also exciting, beautiful, funny, and heartfelt to boot.
Still reeling over Avengers: Infinity War? If so, Marvel has just released the trailer for the next movie in their Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ant-Man and the Wasp. Filled with plenty of energy and comedy, it’s sure to remind you of just how fun these movies can be.
Correction: Peyton Reed got me. No, the below photo is NOT from the set of his film. It’s in fact, according to commenter Robotstorm, from the set of The Incredible Shrinking-Man and taken from Life Magazine. So, I am an idiot. Apologies. -CE (news editor)
Popular director Edgar Wright is someone who prides himself on a broad, diverse knowledge of film. He’s the kind of person that tries to see every movie that comes out. Unless, of course, you’re talking about the film he was supposed to make and didn’t.
Poor Peyton Reed. The director just wants to have his own, small part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe to himself and his ant-based hero. He’s honestly disappointed that Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) and Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) are showing up in other Marvel movies.
The Ant-Man Blu-ray hits on December 8 and, as usual with Marvel movies, is filled with lots of fun extras. A few of those have made it online including multiple deleted scenes, each of which is pretty entertaining and interesting—and one of which is hiding a tease to a major Marvel villain.
Marvel has released a brief deleted scene from Ant-Man before its home release. In it, Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang scouts out Hank Pym’s house in guise of a cable repair guy.
The producers and director of Marvel’s Ant-Man had a difficult problem. You have a character who has to shrink, so how do you do that with modern technology? Do you go the Honey I Shrunk the Kids route and build huge sets? Or is there another way?
Ant-Man director Peyton Reed is negotiations to return and direct the sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp, which will be out July 6, 2018. Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly will co-star.
In the trailers for Ant-Man, Marvel played up a funny gag: one of the fights featured a battle on a Thomas the Train Engine play set. Over on FilmSchoolRejects, director Peyton Reed talks about how that scene made it into the film.
