Last week, Marvel debuted the first in a series of viral videos for their upcoming superhero adventure Ant-Man, which brought back Leslie Bibb as journalist Christine Everhart from Iron Man and Iron Man 2. Today we have another report from Everhart, which offers new insight into Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), who, before the movie begins, has been in prison for the past three years. The "news report" explains that Scott was sentenced to five years in jail after a daring heist at his employer VistaCorp, where he stole millions of dollars and actually gave the money back to their customers.
Marvel fans should also pay attention to the news ticker at the bottom of the video, which includes several tie-ins to the MCU. The ticker reveals that Jane Foster, played by Natalie Portman in Thor and Thor: The Dark World, will be delivering a lecture on "her experiences with interspace and dimensional travel." The ticker also reveals that Hydra agent Baron Wolfgang Von Strucker, played by Thomas Kretschmann in Avengers: Age of Ultron, is confirmed to be dead, and there is also mention of an earthquake in Africa, which could be Black Panther's homeland Wakanda. It's possible that this could be some sort of tease for Captain America: Civil War, but we're not sure at this point.
The video also reveals that Everhart will interview Scott Lang live from prison before his release, so be sure to check back next week for that video. If that wasn't enough, we have three new Ant-Man featurettes and two TV spots for this superhero movie. Check back next week for Scott Lang's prison interview, and stay tuned for more on Ant-Man, hitting theaters July 17.
