The latest Marvel superhero has arrived and the studio has released the first trailer for “Ant-Man,” featuring Paul Rudd as a very, very tiny badass. The footage sets up our newest hero and probably eventual Avenger’s backstory. Rudd is Scott Lang, a petty thief who’s been locked up a lot, who’s recruited by Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) in order to pull off one last heist before changing his way and becoming a good guy. He battles Yellowjacket (Corey Stoll), with a little assistance from Hank’s beautiful daughter Hope (Evangeline Lilly)Read More

Charlie Cox goes takes Matt Murdoch from blind lawyer by day to superhero by night in the first full length trailer for Marvel’s first Netflix series, “Daredevil.” Cox looks decidedly unlike Ben Affleck’s slick big screen version of the same character from 2003. For one thing, his costume looks pretty homemade, at least at this early stage of the origin story about how Murdoch decides to take on the criminal underbelly of New York City on his own. The rest of the cast includes Elden Henson as Franklin “Foggy” Nelson,Read More

After a week hiatus that felt like a year, “Agent Carter” is back! And our dear Peggy (Hayley Atwell) isn’t the only one. The episode opens with Jarvis (James D’Arcy) who plays the role of the ransomee (this is a word now) who is in the midst of paying off a couple of ransomers for a special delivery. 50K–in the 1950s, let’s not forget–is simply not enough and they demand 150% more. What could be worth that much? One of Stark’s precious inventions, perhaps? Nope, more like Howard Stark (DominicRead More
