Now that Avengers: Age of Ultron is out in the world, it’s time for Marvel to buckle down and start really promoting Ant-Man. With the new superhero making his debut in just a couple of months, now’s about the time for the studio to start flooding the media with new images, TV spots and featurettes. Today brings three new images from the upcoming film, featuring the tiny versions of the titular hero and his nemesis, Yellowjacket.
The new Ant-Man TV spot isn’t going to change the minds of those not already initiated into the Marvel Cinematic Universe cult, but it's going to remind everyone that Peyton Reed’s superhero heist movie looks like a lot more fun than its troubled production would suggest. Everything that makes Marvel Studios what it is is crammed into these 60 seconds: stylish action, attractive leading men and ladies, a big name actor classing up the joint, and a just-goofy-enough sense of humor.
As expected, Funko will be giving the Pop treatment to Ant-Man this summer. The collectible company has released a healthy dose of Marvel movie collectibles over the past few years, and continues to show its commitment to giving fans cute-ified versions of their favorite heroes and villains for less than a Hamilton.
You see the release date in the image there: May 6, 2016. Marvel Phase Three kicks off exactly one year from yesterday with the release of Captain America: Civil War. With the clock ticking, and the Avengers: Age of Ultron publicity tour finally winding down, it’s time to get to shooting Cap 3. Marvel announced today that production has officially begun on next summer’s massive sequel, and they also revealed four more big additions to the cast.
With Avengers: Age of Ultron out of the way (but, based on the heated debates online, not entirely out of people’s minds), Marvel has turned their attention to that other superhero movie coming out this summer. A little movie called Ant-Man (we promise you, that is not the last size-related pun). Today, we have our first look at the film’s final poster, which brings the whole cast together to stare at things way off in the distance.
Who is the greatest Avenger of all time? You probably have your personal favorites. You probably also have a pretty good idea who the popular favorites might be. We wanted to know for sure, so to mark the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron we conducted a giant-size poll to give you the chance to choose between more than 100 Avengers members, and rank them from least to best. Now the results are in. And we think there are a few surprises.
With Ant-Man's big-time Hollywood movie hitting this summer, this week we're taking a closer look at the various men who have walked with the Hymenoptera, talked with the Hymenoptera. Find out just how a one-shot horror tale turned into Marvel's least popular founding Avenger, which one of Henry Pym's alter egos is officially the creepiest, and what a Porcupine's super-powers are, as well as several other equally interesting facts.
Marvel has long included Easter eggs in their films, referencing other superheroes and properties in the MCU throughout its current run with Disney. But there’s another Disney property that’s been acknowledged in the MCU: Star Wars. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige reveals that they’ve used the same Star Wars Easter egg in each and every one of their Phase Two films, although you probably didn’t notice it.
What is this? A billboard for ants? In this case, it actually is. To promote their upcoming superhero movie Ant-Man, Marvel has quietly been placing tiny, ant-sized billboards in various public places.
This Monday night, the world of comics lost one of its finest: Herb Trimpe, the legendary artist best-known for his work on innumerable Marvel titles of the '70s and '80s. He was the first person to draw Wolverine for publication, he launched Marvel's iconic G.I. Joe title, he pencilled long runs on offbeat titles like Godzilla and Shogun Warriors, and he defined the look of The Incredible Hulk for a generation of readers.
