New Ant-Man T.V. Spot Ruins A Surprise Cameo

6 hours ago | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

A while back, we ran an article about the current, rather disappointing, trend trailers and promos are currently stuck, cramming in as much footage as they can, and ruining what would have been an awesome surprise when sitting in a darkened cinema. Well, it looks like Hollywood hasn’t learned, with the latest t.v. spot giving away a cameo from an established member of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I won’t give it away here, but you can see it for yourself after spoiler Paul Rudd below. So yeah, Anthony Mackie reprises his role as Falcon, sporting the duds he’ll be wearing Captain America: Civil War. Obviously, we don’t know how he figures into proceedings, but it is safe bet it’ll set the stage for Rudd’s appearance in Civil War. Hell, it could even be from the end credits spot. Either way, it’s a »

An Avengers superhero surprises Paul Rudd in Marvel's brand new Ant-Man teaser

6 July 2015 10:42 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Ant-Man gets a little help from an Avenger in a brand new teaser for Marvel's next movie.

An international teaser for Ant-Man includes a very brief clip of Anthony Mackie swooping in as the heroic Falcon.

The context of Falcon's appearance in Ant-Man is not yet known, given that this will be the introduction of the title character into the Marvel universe.

Both Ant-Man and Falcon will be a part of next year's Captain America: Civil War along with Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr), Black Widow (Scarlett Johansson), Hawkeye (Jeremy Renner) and Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman).

Last week, a viral video placed petty thief-turned-hero Scott Lang (Rudd) within the Marvel Universe. Presented in the style of a news report, the video included a cameo from Iron Man star Leslie Bibb reprising her role as journalist Christine Everhart.

It is also known that Ant-Man will include at least a cameo from the Wasp, »

Warning, this post contains spoilers that could be revealed merely be scrolling down the post. Since making this expanded universe of theirs, it shouldn't be shocking to see an Avenger or two pop into adjacent Marvel movies.

Oops: This New Ant-Man Commercial May Have Spoiled Its Big Avengers Reveal

6 July 2015 7:34 AM, PDT | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Now that practically every Marvel superhero not named Hulk or Thor is confirmed to appear in Captain America: Civil War, Marvel has to figure out a way to keep its ever-expanding cinematic universe semi-logically connected. We've already heard one Avengers name-drop in an Ant-Man trailer and seen all the Avengers-teasing posters, but a new Spanish-language commercial may have accidentally revealed Marvel's worst-kept secret: Yep, there's at least one Avenger in Ant-Man. Enter: Anthony Mackie's Falcon. We last saw Sam Wilson promoted to full-time Avenger in Age of Ultron, and now here he is rocking that same fancy Avengers suit in Ant-Man's world:Didn't catch his split-second cameo? Here's Falcon again, in all his Avengers glory: Let the "Falcon will recruit Ant-Man for Civil War" rumors fly! »

5 July 2015 9:50 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

I previously joked that, some time in the future, there will be a mammoth Marvel Studio movie in which every single Marvel character will all appear. All of them! The movie will cost $1 billion, and will be released around the world simultaneously on 100,000 screens. Whether it'll be a mega blockbuster for the studio, I can't say. But as ridiculous as it might sound, I wouldn't dismiss the idea entirely. Let's check back 5 years from now.  Today, it looks like we can confirm that Anthony Mackie as Falcon, will appear in the upcoming "Ant-Man" movie, which is set for release on July 17, 2015, from director Peyton Reed. There were rumors that a member of The Avengers squad »

Oscar winner Melissa Leo is starring opposite Bryan Cranston in HBO's All the Way

2 July 2015 11:35 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Melissa Leo is the latest major star to join the cast of HBO's Lyndon B Johnson biopic All the Way.

The premium channel is adapting Robert Schenkkan's Tony Award-winning stage play with Bryan Cranston reprising his role as Lbj.

President Johnson's Lady Bird will be played by Academy Award winner Leo, according to Deadline.

This will be a reunion of sorts for HBO and Leo, who previously starred in the network's Hurricane Katrina drama series Treme.

All the Way dramatizes Johnson's presidency from his ascendancy to office in the wake of JFK's assassination through to his signing of the Civil Rights Act.

Avengers: Age of Ultron star Anthony Mackie joined All the Way earlier this week to play Civil Rights leader Dr Martin Luther King Jr.

Jay Roach will direct All the Way, having previously helmed its political dramas Recount and Game Change. »

King Arthur is described as a “good and just ruler” who, beneath the surface, “is a master manipulator who can carry a grudge to the grave, and maybe beyond.” He harbors an “eternal burning love” for the yet-to-be-cast Guinevere that can lean toward being a bit controlling.

Anthony Mackie Is Mlk In HBO's "All The Way"

30 June 2015 7:13 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Anthony Mackie ("Pain and Gain," "Captain America: The Winter Soldier") is set for the coveted role of Martin Luther King Jr. in HBO's telemovie based on the Tony-winning Robert Schenkkan play "All the Way".

"Breaking Bad" star Bryan Cranston plays U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson in the film which follows his sudden ascent to power in the hours after John F. Kennedy's assassination, his turbulent first year involving the passing of Civil Rights legislation in Congress, and his landslide re-election victory.

Schenkkan adapted the script for the Jay Roach-directed telemovie with Cranston reprising his stage role, a role that won him a Tony award.

Mackie's role in the script is said to be significant, and portrays "a more collaborative and complex relationship" than was depicted in "Selma".

Steven Spielberg will executive produce and filming begins in September.
