There was some confusion at the Marvel Hall H panel this weekend, when the studio presented their Ant-Man test footage. Studio president and producer Kevin Feige announced that Evangeline Lilly will be playing Hope Van Dyne, which was also stated in their press release. She is actually playing Hope Pym, who eventually turns into a character known as Red Queen in the MC2 Universe. She is the daughter of Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne, and its unclear why or how Marvel mixed the name up.
Here is the re-issued press release:
Once Upon a Time has added a familiar face — and a very familiar voice — to its Season 4 riff on Frozen.
The recurring character — who will first appear in Episode 3 — is described as “a well-bred prince with a serious chip on his shoulder,” a young man who burns to be king. (Mild spoiler alert for Frozen ahead!) Refined and well-spoken on the outside, Hans has a mean streak a mile wide and will do anything to claim the power and respect he thinks he deserves. »
Stoll will play Darren Cross, but in a major change to his rather forgettable comic book counterpart, he will be a villainous version of Ant-Man in this movie. That name was once taken by original Ant-Man Hank Pym (played by Michael Douglas here), but Marvel have decided to use the persona for the movie’s main villain.
In another surprise twist, Evangeline Lilly will play Hope Pym, the daughter of Hank and Janet Van Dyne. This is a major change to the comics as Jan is The Wasp in the present day Marvel Universe, »

At this year’s San Diego Comic Con, most of the big DC Comics announcements came through the film or TV side of things. No films, except for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, were announced, but lots of TV shows based on DC Comics characters got trailers, teasers, and lots of buzz. But, between the no longer chain smoking British magicians, shirtless archers, and hints of Batman villains and allies showing up on Arrow, DC did make a few big comics announcements mostly having to do with Batman’s 75th anniversary.
To coincide with the BluRay and DVD release of the 1966 Batman television show starring Adam West and Burt Ward, DC Comics announced that an unused script by science fiction writer and editor would be made into a special digital comic called Batman ’66: The Lost Episode. It would be »

USA Network has given a pilot order to “Colony,” (working title), a drama set in the near future about a family trying to stay together while also surviving the struggle of the human race after an alien invasion.
Variety had previously reported that the project from Carlton Cuse (“Lost,” “The Strain,” “Bates Motel”) and Ryan Condal (“Hercules”) had been on USA’s development slate. It joins USA’s previously announced drama pilot pick-ups “Stanistan” (working title), a dramedy about a group of State Department workers, CIA operatives and journalists working in a fictional Middle Eastern country, and “Mr. Robot” (working title), about an antisocial hacker who uses his skills to protect those he cares about — and finds himself at odds with his cybersecurity bosses.

Lilly will play Hope Pym, the daughter of Hank Pym, while Stoll will play Darren Cross, a.k.a. Yellowjacket, the antagonist of the film. The two join stars Paul Rudd (Scott Lang) and Michael Douglas (Hank Pym), along with director Peyton Reed, for the size-changing super hero’s first cinematic adventure.
Marvel’s Kevin Feige said:
"We’ve been fans of Evangeline for years, and couldn’t be more pleased that she’s agreed to join us on Ant-Man’s journey to the big screen. We look forward to audiences learning more about her character when she joins forces with Hank Pym and Scott Lang in 2015."

Well, this is interesting. Despite reports coming out of Comic-Con that Evangeline Lilly would be playing a character known as Hope Van Dyne in Ant-Man, it has now been revealed that she will in fact be Hope Pym. If the name is familiar, it's because that's the daughter of Hank and Janet Pym in the MC2 alternate universe which also features Spider-Girl. She has a twin brother called Henry and eventually becomes the villainous Red Queen following the death of her parents, something she blames the Avengers for. While we could see this play out in the movie, it still seems far more likely that the Lost star will be a new version of The Wasp, a character that Joss Whedon had at one point included in an early draft of The Avengers. We don't know what role Janet will play in Ant-Man, but she will obviously be far too »
That’s it. I quit. No more.
For weeks, I’ve stuck it out with The Leftovers, which many critics (including me) have described as one of the bleakest, most brutal, most depressing dramas on television. But it wasn’t until Sunday’s episode, “Gladys,” that I decided I’d had enough. I refuse to watch another minute of this show.
It wasn’t just that a woman (the Gladys of the title, played by Marceline Hugot) got stoned to death in the episode. I’ve seen worse on my all-time favorite show, Breaking Bad. What I objected to wasn’t the violence. »

This hot new trailer for the upcoming thriller Constantine was unveiled on Saturday, July 26, as Warner Bros. Television Presents a Night of DC Entertainment at Comic-Con 2014. Matt Ryan stars as John Constantine, an irreverent, working-class con man and occult expert waging war against the forces of darkness - from both within himself and the outside world.

Series creator David S. Goyer recently spoke with IGN, where he confirmed that Papa Midnite and the Newcastle Crew from the Hellblazer comics will be popping up in Season 1.
"We have access to the occult corner of the DC Universe. I'm sure many of you saw the Doctor Fate helmet [in the pilot], and that was a clear indicator of our intentions."
Following on from last night’s big Warner Bros. / DC TV panel at the San Diego Comic-Con [which you can watch in full here], NBC has released a brand new trailer for Constantine, which offers up more footage from the pilot, as well as giving us our first look at subsequent episodes. Take a look below…
Based on the wildly popular comic book series “Hellblazer” from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight — or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths), the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her. »

(Cbr) With its Hall H presentation getting under way at Comic-Con International, Marvel Studios has officially announced the roles of Evangeline Lilly and Corey Stole in "Ant-Man." Lilly ("Lost," "The Hobbit"), who's been long rumored for the film, was confirmed as Hope Van Dyne, daughter of Hank Pym. Marvel readers will of course recognize that last name as belonging to Janet Van Dyne, aka the Wasp, which will undoubtedly fuel speculation about the character's arc. Stoll ("House of Cards," "The Strain") will play the film's antagonist Darren Cross, aka Yellowjacket, who was Pym's mentee until their relationship soured. One of Pym's many costumed identities from Marvel comics, Yellowjacket had been rumored as the possible villain for the past month. "Corey brings depth to every role he plays,” Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige said in a statement. “As a major part of the Ant-Man ensemble, we all wanted an actor who »
