How Doctor Strange Connects to Ant-Man

15 February 2017 10:38 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Doctor Strange has finally landed on digital platforms and the Blu-ray is set for release in a couple of weeks. Director Scott Derrickson provided a commentary track for Doctor Strange and those can often reveal fun little tidbits about the movie that weren't previously known. In this case, it was revealed that Doctor Strange and Ant-Man share a connection.

During the commentary track for Doctor Strange, as reported by Comic Book Resources, Scott Derrickson confirmed that, during the psychedelic sequence that occurred when The Ancient One opened up Stephen Strange's mind, the Quantum Realm does appear, which was first seen in Ant-Man. Here is what Scott Derrickson had to say about it.

"This image here is obviously a nod to Ant-Man and the Quantum Realm, acknowledging that as one of the mysterious realms of existence."

It was long suggested by Marvel Cinematic Universe fans that we did get a glimpse »

Thanos' Big Plan Revealed In Avengers: Infinity War

14 February 2017 3:10 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Marvel fans were delighted at the end of last week when Marvel Studios decided to pull down the veil of secrecy and release a behind-the-scenes video for Avengers: Infinity War. Fans got to see Spider-Man (Tom Holland), Star-Lord (Chris Pratt) and Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) hanging out together, which was pretty cool. But perhaps more cool was the look at Thanos that was provided in the video. Now, in another welcomed reveal, Avengers: Infinity War co-writer Stephen McFeely has explained Thanos' grand plan.

Just in case you were worried, Stephen McFeely doesn't really give any spoilers, but just merely gives an idea of what Thanos is ultimately trying to accomplish in vague terms. The reveal comes courtesy of the Doctor Strange Blu-ray/DVD release, as reported by Screen Rant. Here is what McFeely had to say about Thanos' plan in Avengers 3.

"His goal is to re-balance the universe as he sees it. »

11 February 2017 12:39 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The Russo Brothers are currently hard at work in Atlanta shooting Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers 4, a shoot that is expected to take most of 2017 to complete.

Michael Douglas confirms Hank Pym return for Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp

10 February 2017 3:52 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Unlike the majority of stars in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Michael Douglas only signed a single film contract for his role as Hank Pym in 2015’s Ant-Man, but now we have confirmation from the man himself that he will be returning for the 2018 sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp., with Douglas posting the following to Facebook:

Douglas first revealed that he was in talks with Marvel way back in September 2015, so negotiations have either been very protracted, or Marvel had put them on the back burner while they juggle their multitude of Phase Three projects.

Ant-Man and the Wasp is set to begin shooting in July and will also see the return of Paul Rudd (Scott Lang), Evangeline Lilly (Hope Van Dyne) and Michael Pena (Luis). It is set for release on July 6th 2018. »

Michael Douglas Confirmed For Ant-Man And The Wasp

10 February 2017 2:50 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

An actor doesn’t merely sign up for one Marvel movie. They sign on for two, three, four or 13 films. Once you sign that contract, you’re usually involved for life — unless, of course, you badmouth them. Then you’re dead. But Michael Douglas isn’t one to speak ill of Marvel. The Academy Award-winner made a noteworthy supporting turn in 2015’s Ant-Man, and that’s not the last time we’ll see him in this cinematic universe, as he’ll reprise his role as Hank Pym in Ant-Man and the Wasp.

This new casting report is notable since it was unclear whether Douglas would return or not. You see, Douglas is the rare actor to sign a single-picture Marvel contract. One with his level of notoriety, experience and clout has those privileges, it seems. Nevertheless, Peyton Reed treated him well, and he’s ready to work with him again »

Michael Douglas Will Return as Hank Pym in Ant-Man 2

10 February 2017 1:58 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

When talking about the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the most important elements of success are not always related to box office dollars. In the case of something like Ant-Man, it proved that risks can be taken and that those risks can pay off. Not only was Ant-Man a pretty silly concept to try and get mainstream audiences on board with, but the decision to focus on Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) as opposed to Hank Pym, was also somewhat risky for die hard fans. Ultimately, it worked out pretty well. Even though the first Ant-Man focused on Scott Lang, Michael Douglas did appear in the movie as Hank Pym and the good news is, he is going to be back for the sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Pre-production will be getting underway on Ant-Man 2 shortly and we will likely be getting some more details on the movie here and there as things ramp up. »

Ant-man And The Wasp Set To Begin Shooting In July As Michael Douglas Confirms His Return As Hank Pym

10 February 2017 1:26 PM, PST | | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Michael Douglas has now officially confirmed that he's set to reprise the role of Hank Pym in Marvel's Ant-Man and The Wasp. Though we all pretty much assumed he'd be back anyway, it was far from a forgone conclusion as Douglas actually only signed on for one movie originally. As Scott Lang's mentor, Pym was one of the many highlights of the first movie, so this is terrific news. The Academy Award-winning actor will rejoin Paul Rudd as the diminutive superhero of the title, and Evangeline Lilly, who will have an expanded role as Hope Van Dyne. Douglas also revealed that Peyton Reed is scheduled to begin filming the sequel this July. Ant-Man and The Wasp will hit theaters on July 6, 2018. »

This Is Us: Milo Ventimiglia Has Never Been More Beautiful Than He Is in This Flashback

10 February 2017 9:15 AM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Jack way back when. #ThisIsUs. Mv - Milo Ventimiglia (@MiloVentimiglia) February 10, 2017 Can anyone provide evidence that Milo Ventimiglia isn't a real-life Benjamin Button? His reverse-aging skills are rivaled only by confirmed magician Paul Rudd. The This Is Us star shared a picture from the set on Thursday, and his freshly shaven face indicates that we're getting another flashback! (He also captioned it, "Jack way back when," so we're obviously going back in time . . . even further than usual, I mean.) Please enjoy, and send prayers out into the universe that we'll get more shirtless moments.

The Catcher Was A Spy Fills Out Cast With Paul Giamatti And Jeff Daniels

9 February 2017 11:57 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Deadline reports that Jeff Daniels and Billions star Paul Giamatti have closed deals to join WWII drama The Catcher Was a Spy.

They’ll buddy up with Ant-Man‘s Paul Rudd and Guy Pearce, who climbed on board to play military specialist Furman just last week. Daniels is attached to the role of O.S.S. Chief “Wild Bill” Donovan – commonly referred to as the “Father of Central Intelligence” long before the CIA was born – while Giamatti will portray a physicist known as Goudsmit. Leading the charge for this one is Rudd, who signed on to play Moe Berg early on in development. A multilingual pro baseball player, in his time away from the field, Berg secretly moonlighted as an agent for the Office of Strategic Services – hence the title – during the throes of World War II, accepting assignments all across the Caribbean, South America and even mainland Europe.

Adapted from Dawidoff’s biography, »

Infinity War to Bring Back Benicio Del Toro as the Collector?

7 February 2017 2:16 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Avengers: Age of Ultron may have been a big success financially, but most fans would agree that it didn't quite live up to the original Avengers. So, there is quite a bit of pressure on Avengers: Infinity War, which will be unleashing Thanos on the Marvel Cinematic Universe next year. The movie is currently filming in Atlanta and the cast is absolutely massive. Josh Brolin, as it turns out, may have just accidentally revealed a previously unannounced cast member for the movie in the form of Benicio Del Toro as The Collector.

According to McU Exchange, Josh Brolin recently did an Instagram live stream discussing the upcoming scenes that he is filming for Avengers: Infinity War. Though the video has since been deleted, he said that he would be shooting some scenes with Chris Pratt as Star-Lord, Zoe Saldana as Gamora and Benicio Del Toro, who played The Collector in Guardians of the Galaxy. »

The Marvel Cinematic Universe is in great shape as they press ahead deeper into Phase 3. This year, they will be releasing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok, all of which will help build momentum that leads us to Infinity War. The movie recently started filming and we know that virtually every hero in the McU is going to show up, but one of the main attractions is Thanos, who has been teased as a big bad since 2012.

The news comes courtesy of Screen Rant, who visited the set of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 back in April. During their set visit, they spoke with producer Rob Keyes, who talked a bit about the fact that the McU movies typically focus on their heroes »

The Catcher Was a Spy, Ben Lewin’s WWII drama that mines inspiration from Nicholas Dawidoff’s 1994 biography, has recruited Guy Pearce to its ranks.

That’s according to The Hollywood Reporter, noting that Pearce has landed a supporting role in the period piece, and will star opposite Ant-Man‘s Paul Rudd. Dawidoff’s biography, The Catcher Was A Spy: The Mysterious Life of Moe Berg, chronicles the remarkable journey of Berg who was, quite literally, both a catcher and a spy.
