  • HeyUGuys
The release of the follow-up to Peyton Reed’s 2015 Ant-Man, Ant-Man and the Wasp is now only three months away but details surrounding the plot has, until now, been a bit vague. Finally, thanks to the film’s star, Evangeline Lilly – who plays Hope van Dyne – and Reed, further details have arisen.

What we do know so far, is that the sequel will follow on from Captain America: Civil War with Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang trying to come to grips with his new role as Ant-Man. Speaking with Entertainment Weekly, Lily has opened up and revealed how the sequel links with the first outing.

“Scott entered the Quantum Realm in the first film and came back, which is something they thought was impossible. The question has arisen ‘Can Janet come back?’ So the entire film, my character is hell-bent on finding a way to get into the Quantum Realm and bring her back.

Iron Man's Fate Teased in Latest Infinity War IMAX Preview

IMAX has released a new episode of their Behind the Frame series on Avengers: Infinity War and in addition to touting the amazing look of the film, it also teases the death of Iron Man. The deaths of some of the major Avengers has been talked about for months, and this new bit of footage certainly does not look good for Tony Stark and his meeting with Thanos. The tone of Infinity War is dark, but recent TV spots have focused on more of the lighter side of things, showing some the comedic elements of the movie.

At the 2:40-minute mark in the new Infinity War featurette, Thanos can be seen uttering the words, "I hope they remember you..." The line has been heard in previous trailers and TV spots, but we see him deliver the line before the camera flashes to a bloody and torn up Tony Stark.

Ant-Man and the Wasp Gets New Story Details & Images

New plot details for Ant-Man and The Wasp reveal the team’s mission to rescue Janet van Dyne. One of the biggest questions that emerged from Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man in 2015 was the fate of Hank Pym’s (Michael Douglas) wife, Janet van Dyne. Janet went subatomic to take out a missile in the 1980s, and as a result, she ended up being stuck in the Quantum Realm. Hank and his daughter, Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), believed Janet was lost forever; that is, until Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) was able to come back from the Quantum Realm.

Marvel’s Avengers 4 reportedly casts a teenage Cassie Lang

If a report from That Hashtag Show is to be believed, Marvel has cast 16-year-old actress Emma Fuhrmann (Blended) in Avengers 4 as an older version of Scott Lang’s daughter Cassie Lang, played by 10-year-old Abby Ryder Fortson in Ant-Man and the upcoming sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp.

The site goes on to speculate that there are two possible scenarios for the casting: a) that the as-yet-untitled Avengers sequel takes place a number of years after Infinity War and the Ant-Man sequel, or b) that the inclusion of a teenage Cassie is down to time travel, something that has been highly speculated for the Infinity War follow-up.

It has been previously confirmed that both Paul Rudd (Scott Lang) and Evangeline Lilly (Hope Van Dyne) will feature in Avengers 4, with The Wasp set to sit out Infinity War, and Ant-Man’s status in that movie unclear.

In the comic books, Cassie

Sebastian Stan Confirms Michael Douglas And Michelle Pfeiffer For Avengers 4

Marvel’s casting process continues to intrigue and delight with each passing minute – just look at the ensemble cast that’s been brought together for both Infinity War and Avengers 4.

Of course, there are a number of key actors who will likely skip the former film for its untitled sequel (and vice versa!), such as Brie Larson’s Captain Marvel and the titular duo of Ant-Man and the Wasp – providing Scott Lang isn’t stowed away in the official IMAX poster for Infinity War, of course.

But there’s two other Ant-Man stars who’ve been tipped for roles in Avengers 4 – and no, sadly one of them is not Michael Peña’s Luis. Instead, we’re learning that Janet Van Dyne, the original Wasp, and Hank Pym, the original Ant-Man, are both booked in for an appearance of some sort in the 2019 sequel.

Avengers 4 Casts Older Cassie Lang, Hinting at The Young Avengers

Next year's Avengers 4 just added a certain character to their cast that may show us the different direction Phase 4 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be heading. This could be a glimmer of hope for fans who have been anxiously waiting for the Young Avengers to be introduced to the Marvel movie franchise.

Though Infinity War is just over a week away, fans are still left completely in the dark to the movie's follow-up. The yet-to-be-titled fourth Avengers releases next May, and is predicted to be the final movie for a good portion of our favorite Avengers, while setting up the future for a number of other characters down the road, such as Spider-Man and Doctor Strange.

A new report has surfaced that Blended actress Emma Fuhrmann has apparently joined the cast of Avengers 4 as an older Cassie Lang. Cassie Lang, the daughter of the current Ant-Man Scott Lang, has previously appeared in 2015's Ant-Man,

New Avengers 4 Casting Brings Us an Older Version of Cassie Lang Which is Sparking Lots of Fan Speculation

Other than the fact that Avengers 4 will focus on a group of new superheroes that we won't see much of in Avengers: Infinity War, like Ant-Man, The Wasp, Hawkeye, and Captain Marvel, we don't know much about what the story will entail. Sure, we all have our theories on what might happen, but today an interesting new clue has surfaced regarding Scott Lang's daughter Cassie Lang.

The Hashtag Show has confirmed, via their sources, that actress Emma Fuhrmann has been cast as an older version of Cassie. Scott Lang's daughter has been played by Abby Ryder Fortson in the Ant-Man and Ant-Man and The Wasp. She's supposed to be about six or seven years old in the sequel and Fuhrmann is significantly older than that.

We know that the story for Ant-Man and The Wasp is set right after the events of Civil War, but before the events of Avengers: Infinity War.

Infinity War Now on Track for Biggest Box Office Opening of All-Time

Infinity War Now on Track for Biggest Box Office Opening of All-Time
Last week, early box office tracking numbers came in for Avengers: Infinity War, putting its opening weekend between $175 million and $200 million, but new numbers indicate it'll be much higher. The initial projections surprised many fans, since it came in under Black Panther's impressive three-day debut of $202 million, but a new report puts its opening weekend between $235 million and $255 million. If it reaches the high end of this projection, it would eclipse the $247.9 million record set in December 2015 by Star Wars: The Force Awakens. With less than two weeks to go, and anticipation growing by the minute, it may be possible for Avengers: Infinity War to break The Force Awakens' three-year box office record.

These new tracking numbers come just days after ticket retailer Fandango reported that Avengers: Infinity War was out-selling the past seven Marvel Cinematic Universe movies combined, and that its ticket sales were already double what Black Panther

New Ant-Man And The Wasp Promo Art Teases The Return Of Giant-Man

Though all Marvel fans can think about right now is Avengers: Infinity War, let’s not forget that there’s another McU movie coming up this year. July sees the arrival of Ant-Man and the Wasp, the sequel to 2015’s solo flick starring Paul Rudd as the astonishing shrinking superhero of the title. And as well as Evangeline Lilly’s Hope getting her own super-suit, it looks like Scott Lang will show off more of his size-changing powers in the movie, too.

As you can see in the gallery below, a new Ant-Man and the Wasp T-shirt depicts some promo art featuring Scott peering around a building, teasing that he’s going to use his Giant-Man ability in the film. If you’ll recall, he first demonstrated that he was able to grow to an enormous height, as well as his knack for shrinking to the size of an insect,

Baby Driver Honest Trailer: Edgar Wright’s 22 Year Obsession Pays Off

As everyone’s favorite musical of 2017, Baby Driver was a roaring return to form from Edgar Wright after The World’s End in 2013. In between projects, Wright was hired and fired for his adaptation of Ant-Man, which ultimately didn’t fit Marvel’s vision for the McU.

Robert Downey Jr. Says He Thinks Hawkeye is The Only One That Can Beat Thanos

While all of us speculate about Hawkeye's role in Avengers: Infinity War, Robert Downey Jr. shares his thoughts on the character and how he thinks he comes into play. You may think that Downey Jr. knows what happens in the film, but remember, the cast of the film were given fake scripts so things wouldn't be spoiled. During a fan event in Singapore, the actor amusingly said:

"Here's my guess - because I haven't read the script [Laughter]. Because Jeremy Renner is not in the poster, I think he's the only one that can beat Thanos! I think it's Hawkeye! [Cheers] No, I think it's Jeremy: only Jeremy can defeat him [laughs]."

Then director Joe Russo jokingly yells out, "Hawkeye is Thanos!" That certainly got the fans riled up! I've actually seen some fans speculate in the comments that Hawkeye might be the one to run in and save the day.

I don't think that Downey Jr.

Avengers: Infinity War may top Star Wars: The Force Awakens for record box office opening weekend

Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War hit tracking earlier this month with a projected domestic box office opening weekend of around $200 million.

Since then however, it has been revealed that Infinity War is outselling the Combined pre-sales of the past seven Marvel Cinematic Universe movies – Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Doctor Strange, Captain America: Civil War and Ant-Man – at Fandango, which has now led to projections of a possible record opening for the superhero epic.

According to Box Office Pro, estimate for the North American debut of Infinity War now ranges between $235 million and $255 million. At the lower end of the scale, it would surpass Star Wars: The Last Jedi ($220 million) for the second-biggest opening in history, and if it manages to reach – or exceed – the top end, then it will have dethrones Star Wars: The Force Awakens ($248 million) for the biggest weekend of all time.

Avengers: Infinity War Now Tracking For A Whopping $235 Million Debut

Ever since they went on sale last month – March 16th, to be specific – Avengers: Infinity War has completely obliterated AMC ticket records. And we do mean obliterate.

Everyone knew that this movie was going to be big, there was never any doubt about that. It is, after all, the culmination of 10 years of one of the most beloved franchises to ever grace the silver screen. But earlier this week we learned that the event movie to end all event movies is actually selling more tickets than the last seven Marvel films combined. Yes, if ever there was proof that this pic is in a league of its own when it comes to pre-release buzz and excitement, this is it.

As such, box office projections have now been adjusted and analysts believe Infinity War could open to a whopping $235 million (up from the original $200 million), with the potential to hit $255 million

Avengers: Infinity War outselling last seven Marvel movies combined

With excitement for Avengers: Infinity War close to fever point ahead of its release this month, it is now being reported that the Marvel Studios blockbuster is setting all kinds of records when it comes to advance ticket sales.

We’d already heard that the film had shattered the 24 hour pre-sale record set by Black Panther in just six hours, and now comes word that Infinity War is actually outselling the combined advance ticket sales for the past seven Marvel Cinematic Universe movies combined on Fandango.

That’s Black Panther, Thor: Ragnarok, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Doctor Strange, Captain America: Civil War and Ant-Man. Combined.

Infinity War is said to be outselling Black Panther – the record holder for supehero movie presales – by two-to-one, which surely means that tracking estimates of $200 million are conservative, given that Black Panther managed a three-day weekend of $202 million.

The biggest three-day
