Actress Evangeline Lilly playing Marvel Comics' 'Hope Van Dyne' in Marvel Studios' "Ant-Man", provides some updates about her character and her superhero parents in anticipation of her becoming a modern-day version of 'The Wasp':
Lilly is signed for several 'Marvel Cinematic Universe' films.
"I was raised by two superheroes," said Lilly about her character, "so, I'm a pretty screwed up human being.
"I am also fairly capable, strong, and kick-ass, which is wonderful to play, but the most fun to play was just how messed up she was from being raised by two superheroes.
"And the clear message sent by name is that I'm not a big fan of my father and so I took my mother's name."

Over the years, Marvel has done a ton of crossover comics, one of the most recent was The Avengers and Attack on Titan. It was short, but it was really freakin' cool. Affter doing a little research I came across six Marvel crossover comics that were ridiculous. The comic book publisher sure has some doozies over the years. Most of them offer some good, fun entertainment, while others simply sucked. Check out the list below:
Eminem/Punisher - Kill You
In 2009, Frank Castle and Marshall Mathers team up after the Punisher kills a bunch of Eminem’s bodyguards over a misunderstanding. After a concert, Punisher stops the limo from leaving so Slim-Shady and his entourage get out angrily to make him get out of the way. So what does Punisher do? He just automatically opens fire, killing many of them. After Eminem pistol whips Punisher, and an assassin named Barracuda »

Debuting in Marvel Comics' 'X-Men' #4 (March 1964), 'Quicksilver' was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, as the son of 'Magneto', twin brother of 'Scarlet Witch' and paternal half-brother of 'Polaris'.
"...'Quicksilver' is a mutant capable of moving and thinking at superhuman speeds. Originally capable of running at the speed of sound, the exposure to 'Isotope E' made it possible for the character to run at supersonic speeds of up to 'Mach 10', resisting the effects of friction, reduced oxygen and kinetic impact.
"The character's speed allows him to perform feats such as create cyclone-strength winds, »

In the wake of DC Comics' 'Arthur Curry', aka 'Aquaman' appearing in "Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice", with screenwriters Will Beall ("Gangster Squad") and Kurt Johnstad ("300") writing separate "Aquaman" spin-off screenplays, Marvel's Kevin Feige clarified whether or not his studio or Universal controls screen rights to Marvel's "Namor: The Sub-Mariner", the first Atlantean comic book superhero, whose origins pre-date Aquaman:
"Yes," said Feige about Marvel controlling screen rights to Namor, "but it’s slightly more complicated than that."
"Let’s put it this way – there are entanglements that make it less easy.
"There are older contracts that still involve other parties that means we need to work things out before we move forward on it.
"...as opposed to an 'Iron Man' or any of the 'Avengers' or any of the other Marvel characters where we could just put them in..."
Debuting in 1939, Namor was created by writer, »

Just days after Stan Lee was quoted as stating that having Spider-Man, X-Men and The Fantastic Four as part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe was something that Marvel Studios “is very concerned about”, a flood of leaked emails from the Guardians of Peace hack into Sony arrived online, throwing up tonnes of details about the studio’s plans – or rather, lack of plans – for the wall-crawler. The biggest piece of news was the revelation that Marvel Studios tried unsuccessfully (for the time being, at least) to partner up with »

Skye? Daisy? Raina? Trip? The Obelisk? Has the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D.mid-season finale left you with questions? James has the answers...
Warning: contains major spoilers for Agents Of Shield season 2.
Last night's Agents of Shield mid-season finale left us with a lot of new information, and not all of it is going to make sense to people who haven't read a lot of Marvel comics. If you watched the episode and felt like there's more going on than you could grasp, we've answered the important questions for you. Feel free to ask anything we missed!
What character is Kyle Maclachlan playing?
Previously referred to as "The Doctor", the mid-season finale gave Maclachlan's character a name. Or rather part of one. He called himself "Cal".
Add that to what we know about him already – the fact that he's a killer, the fact that he struggled to keep his anger in check, »
Sneak Peek the origins of Marvel Comics' "The Inhumans", soon to be a major motion picture, written by Joe Robert Cole, with actor Vin Diesel, who voices 'Groot' in Marvel's "Guardians Of The Galaxy", playing the silent but deadly 'Black Bolt', leader of the group:
Millions of years ago, at the beginning of the alien 'Kree'-'Skrull' war, the Kree set up an observation station on the planet Uranus, to observe sentient life on Earth that had genetic potential.
The Kree then began to experiment on homo sapiens by splicing 'Eternals' DNA into 'Cro-Magnons', to investigate ways of circumventing their own evolutionary stagnation, while creating a powerful strain of soldiers for protection against the Skrulls.
Their test subjects, that became to be known as the 'Inhumans', formed their own society, »

The Hammer Museum recently hosted an event in honor of the new Taschen book 75 Years of Marvel: From the Golden Age to the Silver Screen. During the event, comic book legends Stan Lee and Roy Thomas talked with filmmaker Kevin Smith about the history of Marvel Comics. It's really great to listen to these guys talk about comic books and the superheroes that we all love. One of the more interesting parts of the interview, though, is when Lee talked about a multi-studio Marvel superhero crossover film:
"It’s something that Marvel is very concerned about. It’s very difficult to bring ‘em all together because these characters are so successful and make so much money that the studios that have the rights don’t want to let them go. So that’s something that all the lawyers and all the production companies have to work out. Whether they get it worked out, »

Over the last few months, there's been an awful lot of chatter about Marvel having conversations with Sony about finding a way to sneak their version of Spider-Man into their cinematic universe. For as long as Marvel Studios has been a thing, fans have clamored for the studio to "get back" all of its properties- which were scattered around at rival studios before Marvel got its act together. For some characters, like Daredevil and Ghost Rider, that happened. For others, like Spider-Man and The X-Men, it clearly hasn't.
But this latest flare-up of rumors just won't die. So how far have these talks gone? What was discussed? Well, thanks to Stan Lee and a couple of hackers, here's the latest...
Moviepilot is reporting that Lee, Marvel's iconic writer and mascot, has given the world an answer to the question of a crossover that reveals it's far from a dead issue: »

We love keeping an eye out for new talent, whether old or new, it’s exciting to always see what filmmakers are bringing to the table. Over the past two years, we’ve been impressed by Steve Ilous’ work that started with the futuristic 2088 that we shared in the summer (see that here) and today we’ve got his short film, Polis to share!
This film is a finalist in the New Regency, Prototype competition and stars Parker Young (Suburgatory), Dileep Rao (Inception), and Mad Men‘s Mark Kelly. Directed by Ilous and written by Daniel Perea, Polis is set in the distant future and set around lead character David Porter, a young telepath whose search for his mother threatens to uncover a utopian society’s horrifying secrets.
Watch the sci-fi thriller below and trust me, it’ll leave you wanting more!

Commenting on the Critics with Simon Columb…
With Star Wars and Jurassic World the previous week, the past seven days has revealed the cast for Bond 24, aka Spectre, alongside confirmation that Ryan Reynolds will return in the standalone X-Men movie Deadpool. We knew 2015 was going to be busy, but now we are seeing a hint of the future. I doubt we will leave the cinema from May through to December! Nevertheless, Variety connected the dots between 007 and Marvel:
Since Marvel Studios started producing its own films and TV shows, Hydra has served as a heavy in “Captain America,” “The Avengers” and on ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” … It’s hard not to ignore the timing of the decision to re-introduce Spectre on the big screen.

And so it came to pass that Benedict Cumberbatch turned the page of the special Panini sticker album he must surely use to keep track of the geeky properties in which he appears and put in a giant picture of Doctor Strange on the Marvel page. The comic book studio has found its cinematic Sorcerer Supreme.He was the latest actor to be rumoured as Stephen Strange back in October, and the reactions ran the predictable gamut from high praise to the declaration of the apocalypse.Sinister’s Scott Derrickson is calling the shots on this one, working from a script by Jon Spaihts.
