Chicago – One of the most famous bow tie stylists in the world, and one of the greatest advocates for understanding our universe is Bill Nye, “The Science Guy.” He used that nickname in the 1990s, when he hosted a popular kids TV show with that title. He was at the Barnes & Noble book store at Old Orchard in Skokie, Ill., to promote his new book, “Unstoppable: Harnessing Science to Change the World.”
William Stanford “Bill” Nye was born in Washington, D.C., and graduated from Cornell University with a mechanical engineering degree in the late 1970s. After stints at Boeing Corporation and as a consultant in the aeronautics industry, he also did sketch comedy in Seattle, where he gained the nickname doing some science demonstrations as part of the show. This led to appearances on “Back to the Future: The Animated Series,” which in turn got him “Bill Nye the Science Guy, »

Given how relatively little time he had to settle into the director's chair of this year's Ant-Man before pressing ahead with production, most felt that Peyton Reed did a good job on the film. It certainly left us wondering what he could to if he had a proper run-up at making an Ant-Man movie.
And it looks like we're going to find out.
Two weeks ago, Marvel confirmed that it was pressing ahead with a sequel. Ant-Man And The Wasp is set for release on July 6th 2018. And now we learn that Peyton Reed has entered negotiations to direct the movie.
The future has arrived. October 21, 2015, the date Doc, Marty and Jennifer travel to in “Back to the Future Part II” is now the present, and we can make the final assessment of what the movie predicted accurately and inaccurately about how the world would look 26 years after the sequel's release. Among the things the “Back to the Future” sequel got right about the future: video games you play without your hands. Areas where the movie was off-track: We’re still waiting on flying cars. Cell phones are nowhere to be seen in 2015 Hill Valley. And print newspapers are still the foremost source of news. Yup, Doc uses the October 22, 2015 print issue of the Hill Valley edition of USA Today to show Marty what happens to his son. In the real world, USA Today is taking this opportunity to tie in its brand to the Back to the Future Day buzz, »

As was showcased in the trailers and promos for the film, there's a very special character cameo in Marvel's latest movie, Ant-Man. And that'd be Thomas The Tank Engine. For those who haven't seen the film, we won't reveal exactly where he fits into the movie, short of to say it's a memorable moment or two we get with one of the planet's most famous trains.
So how did it come about?
Chatting to Film School Rejects, Ant-Man director Peyton Reed has revealed that "I believe in Edgar [Wright] and Joe Cornish's original drafts it was a train set ... at some point in the process that predated my involvement, it became Thomas".
Marvel’s Ant-Man is now out in cinemas, making decent-if-not-Avengers-sized money and garnering a fair collection of positive reviews. Of course, though, this being a wretched hive of geek and nerdery, we’re just as interested to discuss what isn’t in the movie as we are the actual finished film itself (indeed, we’ve already got into the subatomic-level minutiae of the film, here).
A recent interview compilation from MTV UK has piqued our interest, with the cast and director asked to detail their favourite Ant-Man scene that got left on the editing room floor.
Paul Rudd responded with this: “One of the things was a kind of wish-fulfilment sequence, where I discover what this suit can do. I try a bunch of different things, because I have this newfound superpower. »
This post contains big spoilers for Ant-Man
We're going to need Daphne The Spoiler Squirrel for this one. She's back from her holidays, and ready to resume her work of protecting eyes from accidentally seeing spoilers. Scroll past Daphne for the rest of this post (we'd say 'after the jump' or something, but we've never quite worked out what that means).
Right then: Ant-Man.
Come the end of Ant-Man, Paul Rudd's Scott has saved the world, and pretty much destroyed the Yellowjacket experiment. However, there's the small matter of the character Mitchell Carson, played by Martin Donovan, who survives.
According to Ant-Man director Peyton Reed, there was a slightly different ending to the film originally. "At the end of the movie he gets away and has these Cross particles", he said, "and there was »
He was once attached to direct the 2005 film of Fantastic Four that Fox at the time was putting together. The film would go on to star Ioan Gruffudd, Jessica Alba, Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis in the lead roles, and would lead to one sequel. The reboot, as you probably know, is two weeks away, with Josh Trank directing.
Reed's time on the original Fantastic Four project, however, didn't seem to be too happy. "I was a huge Marvel fan when I was a kid", he told Yahoo, "and knew Fantastic Four inside out and felt they were always the crown jewel of Marvel. »
Spoilers! Ant-Men director Peyton Reed on the post-credits stings, and whether he was happy with revealing a surprise in the film's trailer.
This article contains spoilers for Marvel’s Ant-Man.
After we wrapped up our spoiler-free interview with Ant-Man’s director Peyton Reed, we had a few minutes left to pick his brains about the facets of the film that have been shrouded in secrecy until it’s release.
The film’s two credits stings and sizeable cameo were our discussion points. If you’re looking for a spoiler-free article about the film, you can check out our plot-details-lite interview here.
Now that the film has come out in the UK, we’ve decided to set our brief spoilery discussion free. Be warned, then - below our faithful spoiler guardian Daphne the squirrel lies an ant’s nest of spoilers...
Recently there’s been a tendency for spoilers to appear in trailers. »
A couple weeks ago I got a chance to sit down with director Peyton Reed and talk about his new film Ant-Man. I’ve been a fan of Reed for a while now, from his fun 2000 comedy Bring It On (which was basically Pitch Perfect with Cheerleading) to his work within the Back to the Future franchise […]

Ant-Man has two sequences in its end credits - with lots of spoilers, here's what they mean...
Warning - contains massive spoilers for Ant-Man
Another Marvel film brings us a new opportunity to dissect post-credits sequences. And unlike Avengers: Age of Ultron, which kept things relatively straightforward with one quite unremarkable mid-credits scene, Ant-Man has two – and they're both pretty big deals. Here's what they are, and what we think they mean.
To give you a last chance to get out before the spoilers hit, here's a big picture to scroll past. Anything you learn from this point on is your own responsibility. Do not blame us or Jason.
Hope Van Dyne has spent the whole film being denied the chance to wear the Ant-Man suit (despite her obvious adeptness with the technologies) because Hank feels guilty about her mother, Janet, dying in a similar situation. In the first post-credits scene, »
When Edgar Wright parted ways with Marvel Studios, eight years into production on Ant-Man, whoever took the job was fated to end up melting under the magnifying glass of scrutiny, with a sun of an angry internet shining down on them. Or something.
The man who took the job was Peyton Reed of Yes Man, Bring It On and Down With Love vintage. Looking at the early reviews, it seems fair to say that he knocked it out of the park, presenting a fun film that blends original action, lots of laughs, and links to the wider Marvel cinematic universe.
We sat down with Mr Reed in a posh hotel room to talk about Ant-Man, »
