First Look at Paul Rudd as Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’

Marvel’s latest superhero film began filming yesterday, and today the first official image from “Ant-Man” has been released, featuring Paul Rudd as his Scott Lang alter-ego. Rudd is seen rather roughed up, wearing a dark hoodie and jacket and gloves, perhaps heading into or coming out of a heist. Scott Lang eventually becomes the Marvel superhero and eventual Avengers team member Ant-Man, but in this movie, the first person to wear that moniker – as in the comics – will be scientist Hank Pym. He will be played by MichaelRead More

ABC’s “Agents of Shield” is adding another Marvel character from the comes, and they’ve cast a familiar face to play her. THR reports “Friday Night Lights” alum Adrianne Palicki is joining the season 2 cast as Bobbi Morse, aka Mockingbird.

Palicki will first appear as Mockingbird in the season’s 5th episode, with the door open to return for more.Read More

The buzz is building, and I’m already more excited about a prospective “Agent Carter” TV series than I ever was about “Agents of SHIELD.” For one thing, we actually know Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell, who will be reprising her “Captain America” role). As pilot season for the 2014-2015 TV season picks up, Deadline believes this potential series is already so buzzy that it may bypass that aggravating process altogether and be picked up straight to series, set to be announced alongside a second season pick-up for “Agents of SHIELD.” BasedRead More

Ever since relative unknown Chadwick Boseman broke out playing Jackie Robinson in biopic “42,” the possibility of him donning a superhero costume has been an open ended question, mostly because that’s just what rising stars do these days – leverage a smaller breakout role into headlining a major blockbuster. In fact, he was first tipped as a potential “Black Panther” for Marvel nearly a year ago. Well, someone finally decided to ask the man himself about this very possibility. During press rounds for his latest film “Draft Day,” BlackFilm.com raisedRead More

Patrick Wilson Joins Paul Rudd in Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’

Patrick Wilson, 40, is in negotiations to join the cast of Marvel’s “Ant-Man,” according to a report by Deadline. The forthcoming film will be directed by Edgar Wright and is already set to star Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas. “Ant-Man” follows a biochemist named Dr. Hank Pym who “uses his latest discovery, a group of subatomic particles, to create a size-altering formula. Though his first self-test goes awry, he develops an instrument that helps him communicate with and control insects.” Just as all superhero stories go, he decides to useRead More
Avengers
I think everyone knows Marvel scored a smash hit with “The Avengers” back in 2012. Thus far, its sequel, “Age of Ultron”, has kept a pretty low profile. Other than the odd casting news here and there, fans have been left anticipating what the finished product is going to look like. With that being said, it has now been confirmed that an early glimpse of Marvel’s eagerly anticipated “Avengers” sequel will air on ABC next month.Read More

It’s been a long process, but it looks like Aaron Johnson will officially be Quicksilver in Joss Whedon’s Marvel superhero team-up sequel “The Avengers: Age of Ultron,” with his contract talks finally closing today, according to The Wrap. The Wrap reports scheduling issues with Johnson’s publicity commitments to another potential franchise, “Godzilla,” was what kept his deal from being finalized for so long. With his schedule now cleared, it must be only a matter of time until Elizabeth Olsen’s deal comes together as well, since his “Godzilla” co-star is inRead More

Jumping to Conclusions: Katee Sackhoff as Captain Marvel?

Let the rumors begin! Marvel Studios producer Louis D’Esposito recently mentioned the idea of doing a Captain Marvel film, while “Battlestar Galatica’s” Katee Sackhoff recently revealed on the Schmoes Know podcast that she’s in talks with Marvel/Disney for…something, and that there’s been a lot of checking of availability for the first quarter of next year. (Please, please, please!) It’s all very vague.  D’Esposito told Coming Soon about female led Marvel films recently: “There’s obviously a drumbeat that is banging louder and louder that we want a female lead superhero,” heRead More
