Paul Rudd is definitely my new sweetheart of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and I have been waiting patiently for the next feature film for his character, Ant-Man. Rudd recently spoke with Entertainment Tonight updating fans on the status of the next film, Ant-Man and the Wasp.
“We’ve been coming up with the story, just turned in a treatment, but it’s so preliminary. We’ll see. We have an idea of what it might look like but it could change a lot from where we’re at now.”
At least we can take care in the fact that Rudd as Ant-Man has started to be featured in other Marvel films, most recently, Captain America: Civil War. So we have that to tide us over until Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Rudd has reportedly been working on the script for the sequel MCU project with Transformers writers Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari and Academy Award winner Adam McKay.
Right now, what we do know though, is that Ant-Man and the Wasp will see the return of Rudd as Scott Lang alongside Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, with Michael Douglas also expected to reprise the role of Hank Pym in the film. Ant-Man and the Wasp is set for release on July 6, 2018.
While updating fans on the sequel, he also took time to praise the addition of Brie Larson to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Captain Marvel.
“I love that. Love Brie Larson. I think she’s incredible. I think we’ve very lucky to have Brie Larson in the fold.”
Earlier this month, Marvel announced that Ant-Man would be getting a sequel by way of Ant-Man and the Wasp and it will be hitting theaters in 2018. However, this new addition to Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe means pushing back the Captain Marvel film to 2019.
This is not the first time that Phase 3 has been shifted and it is started to feel like we can’t believe anything in that schedule. The first shift occurred when Sony’s Spider-Man deal with Marvel was announced. That announcement means that Black Panther will move from a July 6, 2018 to a Feb. 16, 2018 release and now Captain Marvel will be released on March 8, 2019 rather than Nov. 2, 2018.
Marvel has also added three untitled films for 2020 on May 1, July 10 and Nov. 6.
Ant-Man and the Wasp will be released July 6, 2018. Ant-Man will next appear in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.
We all know a Marvel film is going to be the big hit this summer but will it be “Ant-Man” or “Age of Ultron?” Many are overlooking “Ant-Man” with such larger titles on the way but thanks to a new trailer released last week, we know how awesome the film is going to be.
The film was directed by Peyton Reed, with a screenplay written by Adam McKay and Paul Rudd. It stars Rudd in the titular role alongside Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Judy Greer, Tip “T.I” Harris, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris, Jordi Mollà, and Michael Douglas. In Ant-Man, Lang must help defend Dr. Pym’s Ant-Man technology and plot a heist with worldwide ramifications.
“Ant-Man” will hit theaters on July 17. It is the 12th addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Catch the full trailer for Marvel’s Ant-Man in the video above. And make sure to check out the movie when it hits theaters later this summer.
Marvel’s Ant-Man has added some of the best actors to the cast! Judy Greer, Bobby Cannavale, and John Slattery have joined the cast of the upcoming installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The superhero film features Paul Rudd in the titular role as the man who can shrink while increasing in strength. Michael Douglas will star opposite Rudd as Dr. Hank Pym with Evangeline Lilly as Pym’s daughter. Corey Stoll was recently announced as the villain of the film Yellowjacket.
Peyton Reed is directing Marvel’s Ant-Man. Principal photography has officially commenced. It will hit theaters on July 17, 2015. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe it will be followed by Avengers: Age of Ultron on May 1, 2015, Captain America 3 on May 6, 2016, and Guardians of the Galaxy 2 on July 28, 2017, as well as several untitled releases.
After Edgar Wright departed as director from the upcoming Marvel project, Ant-Man, the studio has been scrambling to find a new director. According to a report from The Hollywood Reporter, Adam McKay is in talks to be taking over the project.
McKay is most known as the director behind the “Anchorman” films.
Both Marvel and Wright said the director’s exit was due to creative differences, and sources say Marvel had been unhappy with Wright’s take on the project for weeks (considering the film was supposed to start shooting June 2 and has now been put on hiatus.) Despite the fact that Wright willingly made revisions to the script he wrote with Joe Cornish earlier in the process, sources say the new rewrites were made without his input, and he walked after receiving Marvel’s new version of the script early the week of May 19.
The cast for the adaptation features Paul Rudd as the title character alongside Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Michael Pena, Corey Stoll and Patrick Wilson.
Ant-Man is set to hit theaters on July 17, 2015. Marvel states that Wright’s leaving would not affect the release date.
Poor pawn Peter Russo, also known as Corey Stoll, has joined a mystery role in the upcoming Marvel film, Ant-Man. He’ll join Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas for the July 17, 2015 release with Evangeline Lilly, Michael Pena and Patrick Wilson also still in talks to form the cast.
Stoll recently starred in the first season of the Netflix Original Series, “House of Cards.” He is also well-known for big screen roles in projects like The Bourne Legacy, Salt and Midnight in Paris.
Ant-Man is set to begin production shortly in George. It is directed by Edgar Wright who also co-wrote the script with Joe Cornish. The film, which is supposed to launch “Phase Three” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will follow Avengers: Age of Ultron‘s May 1, 2015 release.
Ant-Man has officially been moved up to take the place of Batman vs. Superman in the July 17th release slot. Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man has been moved up two weeks from July 31, 2015
The cast list for the project is finally filling up. Paul Rudd has been cast as Scott Lang/ Ant-Man while Michael Douglas will play Hank Pym.
Ant-Man will be the first film in the “Phase Three” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will follow Avengers: Age of Ultron‘s May 1, 2015 release. The movie will be begin production early next year and is set to be directed by Edgar Wright, who co-wrote the script with Joe Cornish.
Marvel has officially cast Michael Douglas the role of Hank Pym AKA Ant-Man in the upcoming movie. I guess Marvel didn’t listen to my pleas to cast Simon Pegg in the lead role. I feel conflicted.
Douglas will star opposite Paul Rudd (now confirmed to be playing Scott Lang) in the Edgar Wright film, set for release on July 31, 2015.
Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige, said,
“With Hank Pym’s rich history in the Marvel Universe, we knew we needed an actor capable of bringing the weight and stature to the role that the character deserves. We felt incredibly relieved when Michael Douglas agreed to step into the part with the charm and fortitude he brings to every character he inhabits, and couldn’t be more excited to see what he will do to bring Hank Pym to life.”
Ant-Man will begin production soon in Georgia. It will be directed by Wright who also wrote the script with Joe Cornish. The film, which is supposed to launch “Phase Three” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will follow Avengers: Age of Ultron‘s May 1, 2015 release.
Wright also added,
“The idea that we have for the adaptation is to actually involve both… Henry Pym and Scott Lang,” Wright told SuperHeroHype some years ago in an interview that he confirmed this morning via Twitter is still accurate. “So you actually do a prologue where you see Pym as Ant-Man in action in the 60’s, in sort of ‘Tales to Astonish’ mode basically, and then the contemporary, sort of flash-forward, is Scott Lang’s story, and how he comes to acquire the suit, how he crosses paths with Henry Pym, and then, in an interesting sort of Machiavellian way, teams up with him.”
Paul Rudd, my secret BFF, has officially been cast in the leading role for the upcoming Marvel Studios project, Ant-Man. Rudd has been rumored to be the top choice for the titular role since earlier this year but last night, The Wrap reported that Rudd will be playing Hank Pym in the July 31, 2015 release.
Ant-Man will be begin production early next year and is set to be directed by Edgar Wright, who co-wrote the script with Joe Cornish.
It is also rumored that Wright’s original plans for the film called for both Pym and the later Ant-Man of the comics, Scott Lang, to appear in the feature.
“The idea that we have for the adaptation is to actually involve both… Henry Pym and Scott Lang,” Wright told SuperHeroHype some years ago. “So you actually do a prologue where you see Pym as Ant-Man in action in the 60’s, in sort of ‘Tales to Astonish’ mode basically, and then the contemporary, sort of flash-forward, is Scott Lang’s story, and how he comes to acquire the suit, how he crosses paths with Henry Pym, and then, in an interesting sort of Machiavellian way, teams up with him.”
Ant-Man will be the first film in the “Phase Three” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, will follow Avengers: Age of Ultron‘s May 1, 2015 release.
Edgar Wright’s upcoming addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Ant-Man, is fast approaching its 2015 release date but fans actually know very little about the film. Recently, Wright, spoke with Entertainment Tonight about the film and why he thinks the film will surprise fans.
“I want to make him into a badass. No, I always liked that comic and I always thought it would be an interesting thing to see in live-action. That’s why I [showed] that Comic-Con test that we did for Marvel, to show this fight scene like a proof of content, like this is what the action is going to look like. I think a lot of people who maybe don’t know the character sort of see that test and go, “Oh, right, I get it. It’s like an action film,” so that’s the idea. I think people will be surprised by what kind of movie it is, and so in that respect it’s something that I know is going to stand out because it’s got a very different story and is a very different movie.”
He also confirmed that the tone of the film would remain in line with the rest of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
“Well, I think the Marvel movies are funny, you know? I think generally the Iron Man films and The Avengers is funny. They’re not ever in the comedy section, but they are funny and entertaining, so I think it’ll be something in a similar vein to that.”
Walt Disney Pictures has scheduled a July 31, 2015 release for the film, which was written by Wright and Joe Cornish.
