8 Post-Credits Scenes Marvel Didn’t Have The Balls To Shoot

31 July 2015 7:24 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Marvel Studios

With the now traditional post-credits sting, Marvel has created a bit of a rod for its own back. It has reached the stage where they clearly have to include something, anything, but also do so in a way that fits either with the film you’ve just watched, or teases the next one to be released. Often they’ll have one of each.

It all began with the appearance of Nick Fury at the end of the first Iron Man film, which essentially set up the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe, but in doing so set a precedent that some subsequent films have struggled with.

Audiences wait around long after the credits have started to roll, and they want something to get excited about. The shawarma scene after The Avengers was great, because it was a joke that clearly tied into the movie, and was a bit different to anything else they’d attempted. »

Michael Douglas is not signed up for any more Marvel movies, but open to return

30 July 2015 9:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

While Marvel Studios have a habit of signing their actors up for multi-picture deals, it seems that Michael Douglas didn’t get the typical Marvel contract for Ant-Man, with the actor revealing that he hasn’t signed on for any future appearances as Dr. Henry ‘Hank’ Pym, although he’s open to a return.

“I’m not signed up to anything more,” Douglas tells Yahoo Movies. “I’ve learned a whole lot and would look forward to more if it comes my way but if not I’ve enjoyed the experience. Now that I understand a bit more about Hank Pym too. I think in this one I had to carry a lot of plot and exposition. In the next one I hope things get a little more bizarre… the Quantum Realm!”

29 July 2015 4:25 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Academy Award-winner Tommy Lee Jones (Men In Black; Captain America: The First Avenger) has officially signed on to face-off with Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting) in the upcoming fifth installment of the Bourne franchise. Details on the film's plot are still scarce, but Variety reports that Jones is set to play a high-ranking officer at the CIA, a role akin to ones played by Edward Norton, Chris Cooper, Brian Cox, and David Strathairn in previous installments.  In addition to Damon, director Paul Greengrass (Captain Phillips) is back to helm his third Bourne film and longtime co-star Julia Stiles (Dexter) is also returning for her fourth adventure. Along with Jones, Alicia Vikander (The Man From U.N.C.L.E.) has been confirmed to be joining the franchise and it's been rumored that Viggo Mortensen (The Lord Of The Rings) is in line for a villainous role. Greengrass and frequent collaborator Christopher Rouse are currently »

Ant-Man passes $200 million at the global box office

27 July 2015 4:41 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Despite being the second-lowest opening for a Marvel Cinematic Universe movie behind The Incredible Hulk, Ant-Man has managed to pass the $200 million mark in its second week of release.

The movie dropped 56% on its domestic opening weekend, but still topped the Us box office with $24 million, beating out competition from Adam Sandler’s Pixels, Southpaw and Paper Towns. The movie passed the $100 million mark in just ten days domestically, and its global earnings of $120.4 million has pushed the movie past the $200 million milestone.

Ant-Man will face competition against Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation this coming weekend, but experts say that the movie is tracking low. So if it can maintain its current box office trend, it could make it three weeks at the top of the Us box office.

Box Office: ‘Ant-Man’ Remains Big, ‘Southpaw’ & ‘Paper Towns’ Underwhelm

26 July 2015 6:08 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

For those invested in fighting the “superhero fatigue is a myth” mantra, Marvel’s “Ant-Man” helped this weekend. Its opening last week was good but not amazing—Marvel’s second lowest grossing opening ever (lowest if you count inflation). Let's be honest, it’s “Ant-Man” for crying out loud, not the most celebrated hero of all time. "Ant-Man" eked out a win for the number one slot with almost $23 million, but to boast “two weeks at #1” is quite an accomplishment. "Ant-Man" business is doing... ok, but this isn't necessarily true by Marvel standards. The movie has crossed the $100 million mark at home (good), and has grossed $226 million worldwide (very good). The test is that it has to be considered within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, even if it’s a decidedly more modest picture. It will certainly outgross “The Incredible Hulk” domestically and globally ($263.4M ww), but perhaps not "Captain America: The First Avenger »

Weekend Box Office: Ant-Man Stays at Number One While It’s Game Over for Pixels

26 July 2015 4:30 PM, PDT | TheHDRoom | See recent TheHDRoom news »

After several weeks of strong ticket sales, the North America box office slowed down a bit this weekend as a trio of new films –Pixels, Paper Towns and Southpaw- all failed to make much noise. Not one of the three new arrivals could dislodge Disney/Marvel’s Ant-Man from the top spot. The mediocre selections in the market helped cool business by five percent in comparison to last year at this time when Lucy opened with $43.8 million and Hercules arrived with $29.8 million.

Ant-Man saw its fortunes shrink 57% on 3,868 screens where it earned an estimated $24.7 million. The film’s 10-day domestic total currently stands at $106 million. Overseas totals are at $120 million. Depending on how much of a direct hit the Paul Rudd flick takes from Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation next weekend and Fox’s Fantastic Four the week after, Ant-Man could work its way to $150-160 million by the end of the summer. »

'Ant-Man' Barely Beats 'Pixels' with $24.7M Box Office Win

26 July 2015 12:50 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Despite competition from three new movies in wide release this weekend, Marvel's Ant-Man held on to the top spot at the box office with $24.7 million. The studio's final Phase Two adventure dropped 56.7% from last weekend's $58 million tally, currently standing at $106 million domestically and $120.4 million internationally for a worldwide total of $226.4 million, from a $130 million budget. The superhero movie pulled in a respectable $6,403 per-screen average this weekend from 3,868 theaters, and its 56.7% drop is actually better than The Incredible Hulk and Captain America: The First Avenger, both of which dropped more than 60% in their second weekends in theaters.

Ant-Man just barely beat out its top competitor this weekend, Sony Pictures' video game comedy Pixels, which debuted in second place with an estimated $24 million. Pixels scored a $6,446 per-screen average from 3,723 theaters, opening far lower than many projections, some of which had it earning over $40 million this weekend. The film, which stars Adam Sandler, »

Agent Carter Can Be the Test for a Possible New Captain America After Chris Evans

26 July 2015 11:15 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

 Chris Evans, along with most of the other original Avengers stars are most likely not going to come back for more films after Avengers: Infinity War-Part 2. There have been rumors about replacing the characters with new actors, such as having Sam Wilson, Aka the Falcon (Anthony Mackie) take over, as was done in the Marvel comic. But would this work? Would people accept a new Cap? There’s a way to test out the public’s tolerance for a replacement actor, and the Agent Carter TV show is the place to do it.

We all know the story of how Steve Rogers, Aka Captain America, was frozen at the end of WW2 and remained on ice until his revival decades later. In the comics, however, there were stories featuring Captain America that took place in the late 1940s-early 1950s. How could that happen? The answer to that question points to »

5 Things To Make Aquaman Awesome on the Big Screen

26 July 2015 10:22 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

With Aquaman finally coming to the big screen, a mere 75 years after his comic debut, DC now has to make the Atlantean hero interesting and entertaining to casual fans, as well as comic readers.  They have a lot of damage to undo since Aquaman’s image has suffered over the years. Here are 5 ways that Zack Snyder and Jason Momoa can make the King of the Seas cool again.

Aquaman, Aka Arthur Curry, was created in More Fun Comics #73 in 1941. Since then, he’s been seen in several animated series, most notably the Filmation studios  Superman/Aquaman Adventure Hour in 1967, and the Super Friends (1973-82). He’s also appeared in live-action form in Smallville, and the pilot film for a TV series, Aquaman: Mercy Reef, starring Justin Hartley. Now he’s making his way to the big-screen.

What most non-comic readers remember about Aquaman is that he’s a »

Peyton Reed details the Thomas the Tank engine stipulations for Ant-Man appearance

26 July 2015 9:50 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

During an interview with Film School Rejects, Ant-Man director Peyton Reed has spoken about the inclusion of Thomas the Tank Engine in the memorable climactic battle of the Marvel superhero blockbuster, discussing how the scene came about, and the conditions that were imposed by rights holder Mattel in order for Thomas to be included.

“I believe in Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish’s original drafts it was a train set,” states Reed. “At some point in the process that predated my involvement it became Thomas. As I came on, they had not secured the rights to Thomas. We had to do this whole thing where we did this presentation for the people who own the rights to Thomas. Thank God they agreed and found it funny, but there were definite stipulations. For example, nobody could be tied to the tracks and run over by Thomas. Thomas couldn’t be doing »

Box Office: Ant-man Expected To Stay At #1 This Weekend Ahead Of Pixels

25 July 2015 8:34 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Pixels opened at #1 on Friday with $9.2 million, but the latest estimates predict that it will fail to retain that spot for the weekend. Instead, it will be Ant-Man which just manages to beat it to the top of the North America box office with $26.1 million compared to Pixel's $23.8 million. This could change as these sorts of estimates can sometimes be off by a few million every now and again, but with such negative buzz surrounding the Adam Sandler led release, it's hard to imagine it getting a sudden increase thanks to positive word of mouth and a so/so B CinemaScore. Ant-Man continues to do well regardless. If it does earn around $26 million this weekend, that will be a drop of only 55%, a fairly strong hold and less of a decline than both Captain America: The First Avenger and The Incredible Hulk (they fell by 60%).

Marvel vs. Pixels: Weekend Box Office Will Be Fight to the Death Between Sandler Critical Dud and Ant-Man Rudd

'Pixels' movie with Adam Sandler. 'Pixels' movie weekend box office: Adam Sandler vs. 'Ant-Man' Despite its underwhelming domestic box office debut last weekend, Marvel's Ant-Man may turn out to be the winner in North America this weekend (July 24–26, '15) thanks to another underwhelming debut: that of the Adam Sandler Pixels movie. According to weekend box office projections found at Variety, the Chris Columbus-directed Pixels is expected to open with $25 million from 3,723 locations – following a $10 million Friday take (including $1.5M from Thursday previews). If so, that'll place Adam Sandler's latest lowbrow comedy – now in 3D – on a par with Sandler domestic disappointments like Jack and Jill and Funny People. Deadline.com, for its part, is expecting $27-$28 million by Sunday evening. Sat., July 25, update: According to studio box office estimates, Pixels underperformed on Friday, taking in $9.2 million. That's below figures for Jack and Jill and, adjusted for »

Comics on Film: The 'Ant-Man' Legacy And What It Means for the Future of Marvel Movies

24 July 2015 10:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

After a somewhat troubled production that led to the departure of director Edgar Wright, Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man has finally been released in theaters. Audience response seems to be generally positive, with the film becoming Marvel’s 12th straight number one opener. While Ant-Man as a whole embraces the tenets and surroundings of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it also represents a bit of a different approach in their films. While entries like Iron ManCaptain America: The First Avenger, Thor, and Guardians of the Galaxy tell origin stories that have a general truthfulness to the source material, Ant-Man takes a bit of a different approach. It doesn’t necessarily deviate too heavily from what...

Arrow season 4: meet four new villains

24 July 2015 12:20 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Damien Darhk, Anarky, Double Down, Baron Reiter. Here are the new baddies Oliver Queen will be putting arrows into in Arrow season 4…

The very nature of Arrow means that there’s never a shortage of villainous guest stars. Things would get pretty dull if there was.

So, then, it’s hardly a surprise that some new names are being announced as the production of season 4 gets going.

Today we have four evildoers to tell you about, so we’d better get cracking…

Jimmy Akingbola (pictured above) will play Baron Reiter. In the comics, Baron Reiter’s villainous identity is Baron Blitzkrieg, an evil Nazi supervillain. They won’t be taking that route in the show, though.

“When people meet this character, he's not German, he's not a Nazi, he doesn't subscribe to any Nazi philosophies," said executive producer Marc Guggenheim. "We were attracted to an organization that actually in the »

How Did 'Ant-Man' De-Age Michael Douglas?

22 July 2015 6:02 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

The opening scene of Marvel's Ant-Man features a scene from several decades earlier, where Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) is seen meeting with Howard Stark (John Slattery) and Mitchell Carson (Martin Donovan) to resign from S.H.I.E.L.D. in the year 1989. This meeting helps set in motion the primary, present-day story, but those who have seen the superhero movie in theaters may still be scratching their heads over how young Michael Douglas looked in this scene. Vulture spoke with one of the men responsible for this "de-aging" process, Trent Claus, whose company Lola VFX specializes in "visual cosmetics" that can make any actor, "older, younger, thinner [or] fatter."

Lola VFX was put on the map from their work in David Fincher's The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, where they "de-aged" Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett's characters. They also created the much skinnier version of Chris Evans' »

Photo: See How Ant-man De-Aged Michael Douglas

22 July 2015 3:58 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

One of the most striking visual effects in Marvel's Ant-Man takes place at the very beginning of the movie, with Michael Douglas looking almost 30 years younger as Hank Pym. Given the veteran actor was actually 70 years old when he filmed the scene set in 1989, Marvel had recruited Lola VFX, the same company that shrunk Chris Evans' Steve Rogers on Captain America: The First Avenger and previously de-aged both Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian Mckellan years ago on X-Men: The Last Stand.  Speaking with Vulture, Lola visual effects supervisor Trent Claus explained how the studio worked with Marvel to achieve the flawless cosmetic effect. "They asked for advice for what they could do when they were shooting that could aid us, which is very much appreciated," he said. "We put our two cents in, and they did everything we needed right from the start." Claus also revealed that Douglas' past »
