Ant-Man Fights Captain America in Early Civil War Concept Art

18 hours ago | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

As of now, Captain America: Civil War is still the movie to beat this year at the worldwide box office, with $1.15 billion. However, Disney Pixar's Finding Dory has the biggest domestic total with $478.4 million, well ahead of Cap's $407.7 million here in the states. Still, this superhero adventure is a huge hit, both critically and commercially, kicking off Marvel Phase 3 and introducing new heroes like Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) and Spider-Man (Tom Holland). One of the most memorable moments of the film, though, has to be the introduction of Giant-Man. Today we have a glimpse at this character's early design with new concept art, which offers some intriguing hints about the early story development.

There had long been rumors that Giant Man would surface at some point during the movie, and he did so during the now-iconic airport fight scene. Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) uses his suit's special capabilities to help »

Ant-Man And The Wasp: Michael Pena to return, filming begins early 2017

Good news! Michael Pena's Luis will be back for the superhero sequel, Ant-Man And The Wasp...

In a Marvel Cinematic Universe comfortable with pitting gods against aliens, robots against mortals, and Steve Rogers against Tony Stark, Ant-Man is a relatively small project by comparison — both creatively and financially. But that doesn't mean it doesn't hold an important place in the McU and that we aren't paying attention to any and all casting news...

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Michael Pena will be returning as Luis for Ant-Man And The Wasp, the next standalone film featuring Paul Rudd's teeny-tiny superhero, Scott Lang, and a larger (well, smaller...) role for Evangeline Lilly's Hope van Dyne. Pena is the third member of the original film's cast to be officially announced.

Newswire: Michael Peña will return for Ant-Man And The Wasp

22 August 2016 8:45 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Ant-Man feels like an eternity ago in Marvel Cinematic Universe terms, and it might be a little early to be talking about its sequel, Ant-Man And The Wasp. But here we are. The McU is a never-ending news cycle. And the latest piece of juicy news to come out about Ant-Man’s follow-up is that Michael Peña will be returning. In a story about Peña’s upcoming horror thriller The Bringing, The Hollywood Reporter also snuck in some information about Peña’s return to the McU. Peña played Luis, fellow thief and friend to Scott Lang in the first Ant-Man film, and he brought some of the movie’s best comedic moments. Hopefully his inclusion in the sequel will mean that Luis will get more fleshed out.

Other than Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly—starring as Ant-Man and The Wasp, respectively—Peña is the first original Ant-Man cast member confirmed »

Michael Pena Returns For ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’

22 August 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

Last summer, Marvel Studios brought Ant-Man to the big screen, and the tiny superhero turned out to be a big hit, changing the pace by being a smaller, more isolated comic book flick. It has been particularly refreshing after The Avengers: Age of Ultron ended up being a little too big for its britches, and […]

Michael Pena Will Return In Ant-Man And The Wasp

22 August 2016 4:38 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It may not have been Marvel’s biggest or most popular film, but Ant-Man still made a pretty sizeable dent at the box office for the studio and seemed to resonate fairly well with fans. As such, it’s no surprise that we’re getting another solo outing for the pint-sized hero, titled Ant-Man And The Wasp.

With all eyes placed squarely on Doctor Strange and Thor: Ragnarok at the moment, we haven’t heard too much about Scott Lang’s next adventure just yet, but THR is bringing to light some casting news today, revealing that Michael Pena will be back to reprise his role of Luis – which should most definitely please fans.

Ant-Man’s Michael Pena Tapped To Star In Sony Horror The Bringing

19 August 2016 2:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Michael Pena, star of End of Watch and Marvel’s Ant-Man, has agreed terms to join The Bringing, a new horror-thriller that’s entered pre-production over at Columbia Pictures and Sony.

Sherlock alum Jeremy Lovering is reportedly circling the director’s chair, chronicling the story of Elisa Lam, a woman who was found dead on the rooftop of the Cecil Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles under suspicious circumstances. Pena is on board to play the man tasked with unravelling that mystery, and considering that CCTV footage of Elisa’s perplexing death – whose body was uncovered in a water tank – later went viral, we don’t envy him.

Brandon and Phillip Murphy are the brains behind the script, which wound up on Hollywood’s infamous Black List two years ago. It’s now been repackaged and placed firmly on the fast-track at Sony, with the studio now on the hunt for »

Will Smith Calls ‘Collateral Beauty’ Ensemble ‘The Avengers’ of a Christmas Dramedy — First Photo

14 August 2016 12:31 PM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

As of right now, salient details about “Collateral Beauty” are mostly confined to its IMDb synopsis: “A tragic event sends a New York ad man on a downward spiral.” That man is played by Will Smith, who’s joined in David Frankel’s drama by a high-profile ensemble including Keira Knightley, Edward Norton, Kate Winslet, Helen Mirren, Naomi Harris and Michael Peña. Smith was kind enough to share more information with Entertainment Weekly, including a first-look photo (below).

First look at Will Smith and Helen Mirren in Collateral Beauty

14 August 2016 12:00 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Little is known about Collateral Beauty, the upcoming drama from director David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada), save for the fact that Will Smith is set to play a man, Howard Inlet whose life is shattered by a personal tragedy. And the first image, featuring the Suicide Squad star alongside Helen Mirren, isn’t giving much away either. Check it out here, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly…

“It’s a little bit It’s a Wonderful Life and a little bit The Wizard of Oz,” states Smith. “It’s the process of Howard putting his life back together, but there’s also some interesting mystical elements.” He laughs. “Yeah, there’s huuuuge spoilers. It’s delicately framed in a way that’s going to be tough to promote.”

John Michael McDonagh’s follow-up to the deliciously dark Calvary, War on Everyone promises to be a crazy slice of black comedy, with Alexander Skarsgård and Michael Peña as two corrupt cops who spend their days blackmailing and framing every criminal unfortunate enough to cross their path. The first trailer did a great job of letting us know what we’re in for, and now this latest look at the movie only ups the ante, making this one movie that needs to be in front of my eyes right now.

‘War on Everyone’ Trailer: Alexander Skarsgård and Michael Peña Play the Cops From Hell

12 August 2016 12:40 PM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

I like to imagine Martin McDonagh and John Michael McDonagh in a constant state of sibling rivalry, with each brother looking to top the other with every project. Martin wrote the masterful stage play The Pillowman (among others) before making one of the best crime comedies of the past decade with In Bruges. John made a strong […]

Michael Peña And Alexander Skarsgard Wage War On Everyone In New Trailer

12 August 2016 9:48 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

John Michael McDonagh is a filmmaker that has become synonymous with a very particular breed of black comedy. Across The Guard and Calvary, the Irish writer-director repulsed just as much as he entertained, and has carved out a loyal following in the process. For his latest, though, he’s about to wage War on Everyone.

Enlisting Michael Peña (End of Watch, Ant-Man) and Alexander Skarsgård (The Legend of Tarzan) as two morally questionable brothers in blue, War on Everyone is a thriller that involves blackmailing, extortion, racketeering and just about every other offence that would lead to any other career going up in smokes.

With McDonagh behind the lens – expect razor-sharp dialog throughout – and signs of a cracking chemistry between Peña and Alexander Skarsgård’s gun-toting leads, color us intrigued.

The rest of the cast includes Jackie Chan as the wise-cracking Master Wu, Fred Armisen as Cole, Abbi Jacobson as Nya, Kumail Nanjiani as Jay, Michael Peña as Kai and Zach Woods as Zane.
