Before Guardians of the Galaxy hit theaters, everyone thought it was a huge risk for Marvel. Fans proved that notion wrong, as the movie went onto become the biggest release of 2014. Its doubtful that Ant-Man will fare as well, since it is being released alongside Disney's two juggernauts Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Avengers: Age of Ultron. But its no longer seen as a risk for Marvel Studios, and fans are becoming more and more interested in the title as its release grows nearer. That excitement should triple once the first trailer hits, which will be very soon. The only question is when and where will we see it first?
The Alberta Films Rating board has confirmed that they received the finished trailer, and they have rated it PG. The teaser runs exactly 1 minute and 48 seconds, which is 20 seconds longer than the recent Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer. »

We have some additional news to share with you about Sony Pictures' plans for a Spider-Man universe. There’s some really interesting stuff here, and it doesn’t have anything to do with the Marvel deal. This is intel on casting for several villains for the Sinister Six and Venom films that are currently in development at the studio.
The following details come from Cbm, who have come across some additional emails that they received from a source. According to them, Sinister Six was moving along nicely before The Amazing Spider-Man 2 was released. After that and all of the fan hate that came along with it, Sony was looking to switch things up with the possibility of including Spider-Man, Venom, and Carnage in the spin-off.
Sinister Six has most likely gone through a ton of changes and drafts since then. There’s no word on whether the movie is »

While the fate of Sony’s Amazing Spider-Man franchise is very much up in the air right now, we do know that at one point, the studio was ready to move forward with both a Sinister Six and Venom spinoff. It’s unclear if they still plan to do so, what with The Amazing Spider-Man 2 being a bit of a bomb for them, but the projects are likely still being considered.
So far, no official casting has been confirmed, but the studio obviously has a wishlist of who they’d like to see bring these comic book characters to life. Now, thanks to some leaked Sony emails, we know who they have their eye on.
Drew Goddard, who is set to be behind the camera for Sinister Six, wanted Tom Hardy for Sandman and Emily Blunt for Scorpia. Meanwhile, studio head Amy Pascal liked Emilia Clarke and Elizabeth Olsen for Scorpia, »

According to leaked Sony Pictures emails from May, there were a lot of talks about the studio's "Sinister Six" film, which will be directed by Drew Goddard (Cabin in the Woods) and focus on Spider-Man villains. Goddard mentioned that he wanted Tom Hardy to play Sandman, but there were also talks of making the villain the movie's comic relief, which is why actors like Danny McBride, Jonah Hill, Chris O'Dowd, Michael Pena, Joel Edgerton, Jason Clarke, and Sharlto Copley were also on the list. Goddard wanted Emily Blunt as Scorpia, but Sony Pictures chairman Amy Pascal suggested Emilia Clarke and Rose Byrne. Sean Penn and Woody Harrelson were wanted for Doctor Octopus (the team's leader), while Colin Firth for The Vulture and Channing Tatum for Venom. Other actors like Denzel Washington, George Clooney and Daniel Craig were all considered for various roles. »
In perhaps the coolest, nerdiest spot of interstellar marketing, the front page of The Martian‘s script made its way onto a Nasa spacecraft earlier this month. Per Empire, the title page from Drew Goddard’s screenplay was included in a capsule for the maiden trek of Nasa’s Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle (Mpcv). The mission, which took off on December 5th, saw the craft shoot up 5600 miles above Earth for its four-and-a-half hour journey.
The film’s executive producer, Aditya Sood, revealed why exactly the page was involved:
“Nasa really rolled out the red carpet for us. In the capsule they had some personal objects that were important to people involved in the Orion project and one of the things was Ridley’s drawing on the cover page of The Martian script. This is a movie about people who are really passionate about science and space-travel, so that was »

In what may seem like an odd story, director Ridley Scott has sent the screenplay title page of his latest project The Martian into space. The page was taken for a ride on the maiden voyage of Nasa's Orion Spacecraft, and included a drawing from the director himself depicting star Matt Damon as the title character. The page was taken from the original draft by Drew Goddard.
The title page features Matt Damon's stranded astronaut declaring: "I'll science the shit out of this planet." Which is an actual line from the book upon which the movie is based. The script page took flight on December 5, and embarked on a four and a half hour orbit 5600 miles above the Earth's surface. About the event, producer Aditya Sood stated:
"Nasa really rolled out the red carpet for us. In the capsule they had some personal objects that were important to people »
Ant-Man really does feel like the red-headed stepchild of the Marvel franchise right now. I know it hasn't been forgotten and we'll hear more about it in the not-too-distant future, but right now it has the misfortune of coming off the heels of Avengers: Age of Ultron, but it's not considered big enough to kick off Phase Three (which will begin with Captain America: Civil War). That's not to mention the production drama that went down before filming. But that doesn't mean the movie won't be good, and I'm excited to see a film that looks different from anything we've seen before in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Evangeline Lilly is excited too, and she recently commented on the upcoming superhero movie. Hit the jump for what she had to say. Ant-Man opens July 17, 2015, and also stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Tip "Ti" Harris, David Dastmalchian, »

Now, in a recent interview with CNN, Lilly elaborated on her impressions of the Marvel machine before she became involved, all the while teasing some of the heist elements in Peyton Reed’s upcoming superhero flick.
“I’ve been astounded to discover how good to their teams and crew that Marvel are. They’re so collaborative, so smart with their stories. They have rich, dynamic characters which are so much fun to play. I expected I’d be a cog in the wheel of a big machine — I wasn’t sure I’d like this experience. But I’ve been so astounded at how pleasurable the whole experience has been. »

Marvel’s Ant-Man got off to a rough start when original director Edgar Wright, who was working on the project from 2006, left over creative differences. Since his departure Peyton Reed took over and now in an interview with IGN to promote The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, star Evangeline Lilly has Peyton Reed as the new director:
“He was a delight. He actually in some ways reminded me a bit of Peter [Jackson],” she said “He had a fantastic sense of humour, was extremely immersed in the comic world all his life, is a big fan-boy but also extremely strong in his vision. He knew what he needed, and he knew if we had it or if we didn’t have it, and it’s such a huge luxury as an actor to know that your director really knows what he wants. He knows when he’s got it »

Avengers: Age of Ultron is unquestionably Marvel’s big event next summer but they are also releasing a film that has been a long time in the making: Ant-Man. Originally directed by Edgar Wright, Ant-Man has been the subject of controversy since Wright departed the project and Peyton Reed assumed the director’s mantle. Nonetheless, Marvel has moved with the production of the film and now, it has released an official synopsis. Read it below:

With principal photography on Marvel’s Ant-Man coming to an end this week, the post-production work begins. The mammoth task of compiling live-action footage together with the CGI components is but one element of that process. Perhaps the biggest matter for the studio to contend with is audience awareness. Ant-Man is arguably one of their zanier properties, that doesn’t yet carry the same household name weight as The Avengers or Iron Man. To ensure the moviegoing public know exactly who this little guy is come next summer, the marketing machine has fired out the first official synopsis.
Running down the events we can expect to see in the comic book caper, it confirms a slew of cast members who were previously only rumoured to be involved. The most interesting part is the writing credit; which currently says Tbd. After original writer-director Edgar Wright left the project, the script was »

Marvel Studios has released some new details for the Peyton Reed-directed Ant-Man film, which wrapped production last week. Those details include an updated plot synopsis and some character info. This information includes four characters that we hadn't heard about being involved with the movie before.

When Marvel's Ant-Man started production back in August, the studio released a brief synopsis for this Phase Two adventure. The plot rundown was updated slightly last month, changing Paul Rudd's Scott Lang from a "con man" to a "master thief," but didn't offer any new story details. Stitch Kingdom has found yet another updated synopsis for Ant-Man, which doesn't shed any new light on the story, but reveals that Jordi Mollà, who was never previously announced as joining the cast, is playing Castillo. Take a look at the plot rundown below, which also includes character names for Judy Greer, who is playing Scott Lang's ex-wife, T.I. and David Dastmalchian.

The folks over at Stitch Kingdom have come across an updated synopsis for Marvel's Ant-Man adaptation which has revealed not only supporting character names, but also a new cast member. It was previously reported that actors Bobby Cannavale and Michael Peña will be playing Paxton and Luis, respectively, in the Peyton Reed-directed moive, but the new synopsis now reveals that that Tip "T.I." Harris is Dave, David Dastmalchian is Kurt, Wood Harris is Gale and Judy Greer's character is named Maggie, who the actress previously revealed will be Scott Lang's ex-wife. Regarding the new addition to the ensemble cast, it appears that Spanish actor Jordi Mollà, who's probably best known for playing the main antagonist of Michael Bay's Bad Boys II, will be playing Castillo in Ant-Man. This seems to confirm previous rumors from the beginning of the year that said Castillo would be a villain »
