Infographic: Introducing Ant-Man

6 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With the release of Marvel’s latest film Ant-Man just around the corner on July 17th, the folks at MorphCostumes – the inventors of Morphsuits – have put together a handy infographic giving some background on the miniature hero and his various incarnations, as well as showing off the brand new Ant-Man Morphsuit itself…

Ant-Man is set for release on July 17th, with Peyton Reed (Down with Love) directing a cast that includes Paul Rudd (I Love You, Man) as Scott Lang, Michael Douglas (Behind The Candelabra) as Dr. Hank Pym, Evangeline Lilly (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) as Hope Van Dyne, Corey Stoll (House of Cards) as Darren Cross / Yellowjacket, John Slattery (Iron Man 2) as Howard Stark, Hayley Atwell (Captain America: The First Avenger) as Peggy Carter, Judy Greer (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) as Maggie, Bobby Cannavale (The Long Play) as Paxton, Michael Peña (American Hustle) as Luis, »

Did Avengers: Age of Ultron negate the one thing that makes Ant-Man special?

12 hours ago | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

James Garcia on how Avengers: Age of Ultron accidentally eliminated the one thing that makes Ant-Man stand apart from the crowd. Be warned, Age of Ultron spoilers abound…

For Avengers: Age of Ultron, director Joss Whedon was faced with several enormously difficult tasks; he had to make a riveting follow-up to his much beloved first Avengers team-up, give each of the film’s new and returning cast members their due, and spend some of that screentime laying the groundwork for several upcoming Marvel projects as well. While he managed, for the most part, to succeed in those three tasks, he also inadvertently stepped on one of the only things that makes Ant-Man – the Avenger up to bat – stand apart from his McU brethren.

The lead has been buried in the film’s marketing in favor of selling audiences on the rather goofy premise, but at Ant-Man‘s core is a story about fathers and daughters. »

21 May 2015 11:03 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Thanks to The Brick Fan, we’ve got some official images of Lego’s upcoming Marvel Super Heroes set Ant-Man Final Battle, which may contain a spoiler or two for the film (and if you don’t want to risk it, you probably don’t want to look too closely at the minifigures)…

"Ant-Man" Merchandise Spoils The Ending?

21 May 2015 10:23 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

New merchandising tie-in photos have suggested that Marvel's upcoming "Ant-Man" film boasts a surprise twist in its final stages, one that has been rumored before at least once.

Potential "Ant-man" Spoilers Ahead

As we know from the trailers, the film will see current Ant-Man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) taking on the suited Yellowjacket (Corey Stoll). Today, photos have gone up of a Lego set for the film dubbed 'Final Battle'.

What's surprising about this isn't that both characters are a part of this set, but also that Michael Douglas' older Ant-Man Hank Pym is featured and appears to be wearing a darker version of the suit. This adds credence to those rumours that Pym turns out to be the real villain of the film.

Maybe it's just something in the toy sets and not reflective of the final film? Quite possible. Then again, leaked photos of Lego sets also »

Has a huge Ant-Man spoiler just been revealed by Lego?

21 May 2015 8:55 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Spoilers: This article contains Ant-Man details some readers may wish to avoid

Marvel's tiniest hero Ant-Man will be arriving in cinemas later this summer, but has a huge spoiler just inadvertently been dropped thanks to a toy tie-in?

Lego's new Marvel Super Heroes set for Ant-Man, titled 'Final Battle', will let fans swoop Paul Rudd's con-man-turned-hero Scott Lang around atop a fly to fight off Corey Stoll's villain Yellowjacket.

However, the set includes a Second Ant-Man in the form of a black-suited Hank Pym minifigure.

Yes, it looks like we may well get to see Michael Douglas suit up to bring the original incarnation of Ant-Man into the heart of the action.

Ant-Man, which also stars Evangeline Lilly, Judy Greer, John Slattery, Michael Peña and Bobby Cannavale, will premiere in cinemas on July 17.

Paul Rudd will become an Avenger in Captain America: Civil War

Official Image Of Ant-man "Final Battle" Lego Set Reveals Potentially Major Spoilers

20 May 2015 5:40 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

We all know how unreliable toys are when it comes to revealing movie "spoilers", but there's no way Lego would release a set featuring Hank Pym suited up as Ant-Man if it isn't going to be in there somehow. There have been rumours that Pym will end up battling both Scott Lang and Yellowjacket at the end of Ant-Man when he's revealed as the movie's true villain, and it's definitely hard to say whose side he's on here. That Black Ant suit certainly makes him look like a bit of a baddie anyway. What do you guys think? As always, drop your thoughts and theories below.  Starring Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Judy Greer, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Pena, John Slattery, and Hayley AtwellAnt-Man is set to be released on July 17th, 2015. »

NBC Should Forget Brian Williams and Start Promoting Lester Holt

19 May 2015 11:48 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Lester Holt notched an exclusive interview with the bystander who captured video of a South Carolina police officer shooting Walter Scott and even anchored NBC’s “Nightly News” from a seat in a helicopter. What does the guy have to do to get a little promotional support from the network he’s helped in the tightest of pinches?

NBC News was so enamored of Brian Williams up until a few months ago that it devised a royal promotional campaign for him last fall using actor Michael Douglas in voice-overs (that effort has been removed from the air in light of Williams’ acknowledgement he falsified an account of a 2003 trip to Iraq, an admission that got him a six-month suspension). If Holt is getting similar treatment, NBC News won’t say. Reps for NBC News declined to respond to queries about promotions for the Holt-led “Nightly News.”

‘Haywire’ is an action film about gender equality with a star-making turn by Gina Carano

17 May 2015 12:32 PM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

“It’s best not to think of her as a woman. That would be a mistake.”

These words are uttered by Kenneth (Ewan McGregor) to freelance operative Paul (Michael Fassbender) in a scene somewhere toward the end of Steven Soderbergh’s truly excellent but much ignored action movie Haywire. The woman they are referring to is Mallory Kane (Gina Carano) and the reason they are trying to divorce themselves from the notion of her femininity is she is far too dangerous to underestimate. Interestingly, this line also has another meaning; that dwelling at the heart of the film is an argument for gender equality, not only in the world of the film but action movies in general. Critically praised but snubbed by audiences, could the failure of Haywire’s attempt to cement Gina Carano as a bona fide action star be blamed on Hollywood’s oversaturation of familiar tent pole franchises, »

Michael Douglas “Lucked Out” Marrying Catherine Zeta-Jones

13 May 2015 10:37 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Michael Douglas thinks he “really lucked out” marrying Catherine Zeta-Jones.

The 70-year-old actor “spoiled” his wife – with who he has children Dylan, 14, and Carys, 12 – on Mother’s Day at the weekend because she deserved to be treated well.

Explaining he presented Catherine with flowers and gifts, Michael added: “[And I gave her] lots of love and affection. I lucked out, I really lucked out.”

His thrilled wife said: “It was one of the best days I’ve had in many, many years, we were all together, I got spoiled rotten, I must be doing something right.”

While they are happy in their marriage, the couple – who split briefly in 2013 – have mixed opinions on working together.

Catherine, 45, said: “If he wasn’t my husband, I’d like to work with Michael Douglas, it’s true, he’s a great actor.”

However, her spouse told ‘Extra': “I would like to work with you any way I can get you, »

'Cinderella' Star Lily James Joins Edgar Wright's 'Baby Driver' Alongside Ansel Elgort

8 May 2015 11:56 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

As Edgar Wright puts his latest project, Baby Driver, into high gear, he ropes in another up-and-coming young performer to come along for the ride. Cinderella star Lily James joins Ansel Elgort (The Fault in Our Stars) for the former Ant-Man director's new rock 'n' roll car chase action comedy. James will play a diner waitress and Elgort's titular character's love interest. Baby Driver follows a mute driver (Elgort) with an ear condition which forces him to listen to music constantly to drown out the continuous ringing inside his ears. He serves as the driver for a group of bank robbers on the run when a heist turns sour. Production is scheduled to start this fall in New Orleans, from a screenplay also written by Wright. Elgort joined the film back in January. Rumors stated Emma Stone as the top choice for the part earlier this year, but it looks as though James won out. »
