Netflix can always be relied upon to provide audiences with unexpected gems but, as the streaming service continues to make progress in the production of new material, we not only get to hear about those gems in advance, but we get to anticipate their arrival and consume it immediately upon release. Such is the case with Little Evil – a new comedy coming from writer-director Eli Craig (Tucker & Dale Vs Evil) that is now set to star Evangeline Lilly and Adam Scott.
The premise has great comedic potential, while leaving room for Craig’s trademark scary edge. Gary (Adam Scott) marries Samantha (Evangeline Lilly) and in doing so, gains a six year old stepson (played by Owen Atlas). The honeymoon period is somewhat disrupted, however, because the child is revealed to be the Anti-Christ.
Such a plot would demand some deft work on the part of the cast, and in this case, »

Being a step-dad is a tough gig, but it’s got to be even tougher when the kid you’ve just started parenting happens to be a demon spawn who is destined to lead the armies of Hell in a war against Jesus during the End Times. That’s precisely the situation that Adam Scott will find himself in when he stars in Little Evil, a new horror comedy coming to Netflix. According to Variety, Scott will play a man who marries “the woman of his dreams” (played by Evangeline Lilly) and then has to deal with his suspicions that her son (Owen Atlas) is the Antichrist. Little Evil is being written and directed by Eli Craig, and it will also feature Donald Faison, Chris D’Elia, Bridget Everett, Clancy Brown, and Tyler Labine.
Also, it’s worth pointing out that there’s an American Dad episode with a plot »

Eli Craig is writing and directing the film about Gary (Scott) who has just married Samantha (Lilly), the woman of his dreams, only to discover that her six-year-old son (Owen Atlas) may be the antichrist.
The movie was originally set up at Universal Pictures where Stuber has a first-look deal. The studio let it go, but Craig delivered a script that Stuber couldn’t pass up. The project soon gained momentum with Netflix eventually coming on to finance and distribute. »

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 »

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.
Pena will return as Luis, Lang's friend, whose inability to tell a story without delving into totally »
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.

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.

While not as large in scale as many other Marvel films, 2015's Ant-Man won the hearts of audiences with a whimsical story and humourous characters. One of these hilarious additions was Micheal Pena as Luis, one of Scott Lang's criminal associates who stole many a scene with his fast-talking antics. The Hollywood Reporter has now confirmed that the actor will be reprising his role in the sequel, Ant-Man and The Wasp.

Peyton Reed will return to direct, with a script from Reed, Rudd, Adam McKay, Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Ferrari.

Back in October, Marvel confirmed that they are moving forward with an Ant-Man sequel entitlted Ant-Man and the Wasp, which will be released on July 6, 2018. Due to the title alone, we know that Paul Rudd will be back as Scott Lang/Ant-Man, alongside Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne/Wasp. Aside from those main stars, no other actors have been confirmed yet, until today, when a new report confirmed that Michael Pena will be back as Luis.
The news comes buried at the end of a story from The Hollywood Reporter, which reveals that Michael Pena will be back for Ant-Man 2, which starts filming next year. As for other cast members, Michael Douglas teased in a November interview he would come back as Hank Pym for Ant-Man 2, under one condition, that he won't be given a lot of "expositional dialogue" in this follow-up. During that interview, he also »
It is quite rare that a big-budget superhero movie is co-written by its main star, but that's exactly what happened with last year's Ant-Man. After Edgar Wright backed out of directing the movie, star Paul Rudd and his Anchorman director Adam McKay rewrote the script before production started with director Peyton Reed. Back in December, it was confirmed that Adam McKay will help Paul Rudd, Gabriel Ferrari and Andrew Barrer hash out the story for Ant-Man and the Wasp, before Rudd, Ferrari and Barrer sit down to write the actual script. During an interview on the Sausage Party red carpet, Paul Rudd revealed that their initial treatment for Ant-Man and the Wasp is finished.
Unfortunately, Paul Rudd wouldn't shed too much light on the story in his interview with Entertainment Tonight. The actor teased that the story they have come up with is very "preliminary" and could change quite a »
For over six decades, Disney has been igniting in little girls the dream of being a princess. Then, in 2001, with the help of Julie Andrews and Anne Hathaway, the House of Mouse showed us that wearing the tiara is not all it’s cracked up to be. The Princess Diaries opened in theaters 15 years ago today. Hathaway’s Mia Thermopiles learns just what kind of pressure and responsibility is involved with being princess when she learns she’s the heir to the crown of Genovia. “I don’t want to run my own country. I just want to pass 10th grade,” she moans. It was the film debut of Anne Hathaway, who has since become Hollywood royalty herself, earning an Oscar for Les Misérables and nabbing coveted roles like Catwoman in Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises. The Princess Diaries gave us Anne Hathaway, and it also gave us »

Evangeline Lilly should have been one of the founding members of The Avengers for Marvel's cinematic universe, but Ant-Man and the Wasp director Peyton Reed is determined for her to get her superhero due. Modern Myth Media caught up with the director amidst the 42nd Annual Saturn Awards (Ant-Man won for Best Comic-to-Film Motion Picture). Oddly enough, Ant-Man and the Wasp will be the first McU film with a female character in the title since the inception of the McU almost ten years ago (Though they've been making snail's paced progress). As Stephen Colbert called it - a sausage fest. But Reed has had a lot of great stuff to say about Lilly and Wasp. He's spoken about the partnership of Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne before but went into it a bit more for Mmm: It’s something we’re excited about. For me as a comic nerd, »

Marvel kicked off the summer movie season last month with their epic sequel Captain America: Civil War, which has gone on to become the highest-grossing movie so far this year. The blockbuster has taken in over $400 million domestically and $1.1 billion worldwide. Yesterday, concept artist Andy Park revealed early designs of Scarlet Witch and Hawkeye, but today we have a new glimpse at Ant-Man's early costume design.
Andy Park actually designed the original costume for last summer's Ant-Man, so naturally he was the perfect choice to re-design a new look for Captain America: Civil War. In just five years, he's become a go-to artist for Marvel, having worked on Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, along with the TV shows Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Daredevil.
