The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man.” Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
China has finally lifted it's self-imposed 'summer blackout', which means a barrage of big Hollywood blockbusters are about to hit the country like a tsunami. Terminator Genisys debuted to Chinese audiences last weekend, where it zoomed to number one on international charts, giving the movie a second chance at a full blown trilogy after opening to dismal numbers in the states. Now, Marvel is about to unleash Ant-Man on Asian shores, where the movie is sure to be a big hit.
To celebrate it's arrival in China, Marvel has officially released one of the film's biggest and best moments. Yes, the fight between Scott Lang and The Falcon is available for all to see, offering a look at just one of the Avengers cameos the movie contains. Out since July 17th in the states, the presence of Anthony Mackie's Sam Wilson was revealed weeks before the movie opened, with a few TV spots and a shorter clip giving it all away. Hey, they needed some way to get audiences in theaters who weren't yet familiar with the more obscure character of Ant-Man.Read More
During the Q&A session, Evangeline Lilly was also asked if she would like the chance to "fight" her mother, Janet Van Dyne, in the Quantum Realm. The first Ant-Man only gave us a brief tease of the Quantum Realm, but it also established that there is a way out of this mysterious place, since Scott Lang was able to escape. The actress said that she loved the fan's ideas, adding she would love to see Wasp fight Mark Ruffalo's Hulk, since she would just fly around the Green Goliath and make him exasperated. She also added that she wants fans to keep bugging Marvel about putting her in more movies, but we're not sure which movies she will appear in yet.
The producer went on to confirm that fans will get to see The Wasp at some point during Phase Three, but he wouldn't confirm exactly when that would happen. After Captain America: Civil War, Marvel will roll out Doctor Strange (November 4, 2016), Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (May 5, 2017), Thor: Ragnarok (November 3, 2017), Avengers: Infinity War Part I (May 4, 2018), Black Panther (July 6, 2018), Captain Marvel (November 2, 2018), Avengers: Infinity War - Part II (May 3, 2019) and Inhumans (July 12, 2019). Hopefully we'll find out soon which of these movies The Wasp will be appearing in. What do you think of these new details?

For those who have seen Ant-Man in theaters, there are two post-credit scenes, one which sets up the future of a certain Ant-Man character, Evangeline Lilly's Hope Van Dyne, and another that teases Captain America: Civil War. Earlier today, Marvel released a photo from the first end credits scene, but there will be spoilers for those who haven't seen the movie yet. This is your last chance to avoid any spoilers, so from here on out, read on at your own risk.
One of the running sub-plots throughout Ant-Man is that Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) resents her father Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) for choosing Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) to become the Ant-Man. Towards the end of the movie, Hank reveals that his wife and Hope's mother Janet was killed during a mission, while she was wearing the first version of The Wasp suit. He didn't want to lose Hope by putting her in danger, which is why he let Scott wear the Ant-Man suit. The first end credits scene shows Hank leading Hope into a secret area, where he unveils her very own Wasp suit, when a grinning Hope replies "It's about time." Today's photo gives us our best look at this suit yet, although we still don't know when we'll see it again.Read More
For those who haven't seen Ant-Man in theaters quite yet, there will be SPOILERS for one of the post-credits scenes below, so read on at your own risk. There are actually two post credit scenes, one which features Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and his daughter Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly), and another that helps set up Captain America: Civil War, which is currently filming in Atlanta. This is your last chance to avoid any spoilers, so proceed at your own risk.
There were some who speculated that Bucky/Winter Soldier may have done this to himself, to get rid of his robotic arm, but it seems that isn't the case. We know that Paul Rudd's Scott Lang will be featured in Captain America: Civil War, and it seems likely that, after presumably being called upon to help free Bucky, he is then introduced to the rest of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, but it still isn't known how large a role he will play in the first Marvel Phase Three adventure.Read More
