Ant-Man and the Wasp will be Marvel’s first romantic comedy

Marvel Studios has made a conscious effort to vary its superhero movies, dipping its toes into the genres of political thriller (Captain America: The Winter Soldier), space opera (Guardians of the Galaxy) and high school coming-of-age comedy (Spider-Man: Homecoming).

The first Ant-Man was billed as a heist movie, and now it seems that Marvel and director Peyton Reed are shifting gears for the upcoming sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp with the studio’s first romantic comedy.

According to Kinometro, a presentation was held by Marvel at the Kinorynok event in Russia, which included a new trailer for Black Panther, as well as a promo video for Ant-Man and the Wasp. And it was during the latter where the project was introduced as “the first rom-com from Marvel”.

Ant-Man And The Wasp Will Be Marvel’s First Romantic Comedy

Marvel Studios recently placed a bow on the production of Ant-Man and the Wasp and with the film now heading into post ahead of its release this coming summer, we’re starting to learn a little more about it.

Though it remains unconfirmed, we’ve already heard that the sequel will begin with Scott Lang on house arrest. Still reeling from the events of Civil War – remember, just like Spider-Man: Homecoming before it, Ant-Man 2 will seemingly take place in the fallout of Marvel’s 2016 crossover – Paul Rudd’s hero is said to be enjoying more time with his daughter Cassie, though is quickly pulled back into the fray once he catches wind of Hope and Hank’s mission.

Sounds like another thrilling adventure for the titular hero, but if some new intel from ComicBook.com is to be believed, it’ll actually be quite different from both the first

Alexander Skarsgard and Randall Park join Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron in Flarsky

Back in February it was announced that Seth Rogen (The Disaster Artist) and Charlize Theron (Mad Max: Fury Road) had signed on to star in Flarsky, the new film from 50/50 and The Night Before director Jonathan Levine, and now we have word on two more additions to the cast.

The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that Alexander Skarsgard (Big Little Lies) and Randall Park (The Disaster Artist) have both joined the film, which also has Andy Serkis (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), June Diane Raphael (The Disaster Artist) and Ravi Patel (Master of None) on board.

The film, which is currently shooting in Montreal, sees Rogen as Fred Flarsky, “a down-on-his-luck journalist who decides to pursue his childhood crush and former babysitter (Theron), who now happens to be the secretary of state and one of the most powerful people on the planet.” Skarsgard is set to portray the Canadian prime minister,

Ant-Man and the Wasp may open a “whole entire new multiverse” for the McU, according to Evangeline Lilly

While Avengers: Infinity War is still a good few months away, and Avengers 4 is just a blip on the horizon at this point, people are still looking way way ahead to the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Honestly, it’s hard not to. Marvel has no plans of stopping, and it’s fun to speculate where Kevin Feige may take things next. Well, prepare to put on your tin-foil hats, because according to The Wasp actress Evangeline Lilly, Ant-Man and The Wasp may have a profound impact on the future of the McU.

During a Q&A with Vanity Fair, she let this slip:

“When I heard about Infinity War and the direction that they’re heading, I did have this moment of realizing, oh, wow, there’s a bit of a déjà vu for me with the Lost franchise. We are hitting that [Lost] Season 4 space where everything’s about to shift,

‘Drunk History’: Derek Waters Previews Season 5 and Acknowledges the Insanity of Getting Oscar-Winning Guest Stars

‘Drunk History’: Derek Waters Previews Season 5 and Acknowledges the Insanity of Getting Oscar-Winning Guest Stars
Ten years after the invention of the “Drunk History” format, comedian Derek Waters is reconsidering how to describe the performers who get wasted, then narrate their take on a pivotal moment in history. “I want to start calling them ‘storytellers,'” he said. “It sounds more important. I think ‘narrator’ sounds like a voiceover actor.”

Indeed, the term “narrator” doesn’t quite do justice to what intoxicated celebrities bring to the series, which returned to television Tuesday night after nearly 13 months off the air.

Tuesday’s “Drunk History Christmas Special” will be followed by the show’s full return on January 23. It’s been a long time since new “Drunk History” episodes premiered, something Waters (who co-created the show with Jeremy Konner) acknowledged. “If I was a fan, I’m thinking the show’s over,” he said. “‘I thought you were dead.’ But that’s better like that than people going,

The Best TV Characters Who Deserve Their Own Spinoffs Now – IndieWire Critics Survey

The Best TV Characters Who Deserve Their Own Spinoffs Now – IndieWire Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best show currently on TV?” can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s question: Which character(s) on a TV show that aired in 2017 deserves their own spinoff?

Damian Holbrook (@damianholbrook), TV Guide Magazine

I would be down for a show built around Laura Dern’s one-episode role on “The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt” as Wendy Hebert, the flaky “mystery bitch” who wanted to marry Rev. Richard Wayne Gary Wayne (Jon Hamm). Mostly because Dern is the absolute shit and she should be doing more comedy. And secondly because this could be, as the theme song says, a fascinating transition from the lightly touched-upon trauma Kimmy (Ellie Kemper) endured at her kidnapper’s hand to a darker comedic exploration into the

The Voice Top 11 Performance Recap: Songs in the Key of Life or Death

Upon hearing that The Voice‘s Top 11 would be performing songs suggested by viewers, I thought, “Hey, at least we can’t do any worse than Miley Cyrus assigning ‘Delta Dawn’ to Ashland Craft or Adam Levine sticking Adam Cunningham with ‘Against All Odds.'” And who among us hasn’t said to themselves, “No, no, no, don’t give so-and-so that song, give them this song!” then added for emphasis, “Jeez, why would you be so cruel to a member of your own team, Coach?!?” Personally, I wanted to hear Chloe Kohanski try something from the Sia catalog, Noah Mac rock Franz Ferdinand,

Synopsis:

A behind-the-scenes look at the making of Tommy Wiseau’s The Room (2003).

Oh hai readers!

Is The Disaster Artist a funnier and more complete film having seen the incoherent train wreck that is Tommy Wiseau’s 2003 released disasterpiece The Room (including a general familiarity with its toxic production)? Absolutely, it would be misleading to say that my permanent smile didn’t

Laurence Fishburne on swapping the Dceu for the McU with Ant-Man and the Wasp

Having portrayed Daily Planet editor Perry White in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Laurence Fishburne is swapping the DC Extended Universe for the Marvel Cinematic Universe next year as he takes on the role of Bill Foster, a.k.a. Goliath, in Ant-Man and the Wasp.

Speaking to Yahoo!, Fishburne has expressed his excitement about joining the McU, as well as discussing his love of comic books:

“I’ve been watching Marvel movies for a long time and I’ve imagined and dreamt and fantasized that one day I’d be lucky enough to be in the Marvel Universe and that day has come… I was mostly a Marvel guy, but I also loved the DC comics. I loved the DC universe. I bought comics from both universes. And then subsequently bought comics from other labels — Vertigo and Dark Horse.”

Ant-Man 2 Wraps Production

Ant-Man 2 Wraps Production
Marvel's Ant-Man and the Wasp has finally wrapped production as of late last night, according to director Peyton Reed. Ant-Man and the Wasp began shooting on August 1, with Marvel Studios releasing a brief teaser video that showcased the official logo for this highly-anticipated sequel. Now that production has wrapped, the countdown begins for the first trailer to surface, as the post-production process begins, as we get closer and closer to the July 6, 2018 release date.

This news comes just after star Paul Rudd showed off the new Ant-Man costume during a special video he prepared for the HBO special Night of Too Many Stars, directly from the Ant-Man and the Wasp set. We also recently got our first glimpse at Michelle Pfieffer as Janet Van Dyne, the thought-to-be-dead wife of Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and mother of Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly). While very little about her return is known, the

Paul Rudd Shows Off His New Costume For Ant-Man And The Wasp

Hope Van Dyne won’t be the only one sporting a revamped suit in Ant-Man and the Wasp, as a new video from HBO has brought us closer to Scott Lang’s new duds as they’ll appear in the 2018 sequel.

Production on Peyton Reed’s pint-sized actioner continues apace ahead of that all-important release date – July 6th for those keeping tabs – and over the weekend, HBO uploaded the above video from Night Of Too Many Stars that features Rudd in his new costume, giving us our best look at it yet. Retaining the same black/red color scheme as its predecessor, this is a much cleaner super-suit for Scott Lang, who gears up “alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.”

Those breadcrumbs will seemingly lead our miniature heroes on a quest to find Janet van Dyne, the original Wasp who slipped into

Rob Huebel on His ‘Comedy Mafia’ and Making Justin Long Strip Naked at a Malibu Beach — Turn It On Podcast

Rob Huebel on His ‘Comedy Mafia’ and Making Justin Long Strip Naked at a Malibu Beach — Turn It On Podcast
For his new YouTube Red series, Rob Huebel couldn’t find a nude beach to shoot a scene. So he forced a nude Justin Long on unsuspecting families at a beach in Malibu.

“We’re naked, and families are out there, children are crying, and other people are out there filming us with their phones,” Huebel told IndieWire’s Turn It On podcast. “The producers had to go up to people and say, ‘hey man, please don’t post that naked photo of Justin Long on the Internet or sell it to TMZ!”

Long is one of the guests on Huebel’s new irreverent YouTube Red series “Do You Want to See A Dead Body?” The comedy features Huebel and celebrity friends as they search for a dead body that Huebel has found.

“It’s such an absurd premise,” Huebel admitted. “Sometimes we find the body, sometimes we don’t find the body,

‘Office Christmas Party’ DVD Review

Stars: Jason Bateman, Olivia Munn, T.J. Miller, Jennifer Aniston, Kate McKinnon, Courtney B. Vance, Jillian Bell, Rob Corddry, Vanessa Bayer, Randall Park, Sam Richardson, Jamie Chung | Written by Justin Malen, Laura Solon, Dan Mazer | Directed by Josh Gordon, Will Speck

Josh Gordon and Will Speck, co-directors of one of, if not The, greatest ice-skating comedy ever (Blades of Glory), re-team for another buddy comedy that once again mixes gross-out humour and heartfelt laughs – this time in a story set in the world of office politics. Think Animal House for the tech generation…

Reminiscent of the Seth Rogen flick The Night Before, Office Christmas Party is very much in the same vein: an ensemble cast in a crazy scenario, featuring raunchy comedy and some totally outrageous situations and it’s all set over the Christmas holiday season. It also shares a similar taste in songs, in fact the two films could
