Watch the First Trailer for Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’

It feels like there’s been a lot of talk about Marvel’s upcoming film, Ant-Man, but we haven’t gotten the best view at what the film has to offer. Remember, the first teaser they gave us was a micro-sized, 18-second snippet.

Today, Marvel felt pity for us mere mortals and released the official first trailer (coming in at almost two and a half minutes). In it, we get to see not only Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang and his alter-ego Ant-Man, but we also get introduced to Michael Douglas’ Dr. Hank Pym, Evangeline Lilly’s Hope Van Dyne, and Corey Stoll’s Darren Cross and his alter-ego Yellowjacket.

Not only are we able to see all the action that a Marvel superhero film typically offers, we were also able to see the humorous side, like when Lang tells Pym his days of breaking in and stealing stuff are behind him, but Pym tells him he needs to break into a place and steal stuff.

Anyway, check out the trailer below which also feature some really cute ants spinning a penny (never though we’d say that).

Ant-Man hit theaters on July 17.

Marvel Studios Unveil “Phase Three”

avengers2012

Looks like the three seconds in the limelight DC Comics had gotten last week when they revealed their long list of upcoming superhero films has now been sidetracked by Marvel.

In an event held today, the brains behind Marvel Studios and Disney have revealed the list of superhero flicks that will be rivaling DC’s.

The eight films will include Captain Marvel, Inhumans, a stand alone film for Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) who will play a large role in Captain America, as well as the final films for both the Avengers and Thor. Unlike the final Thor film, the final Avengers film will be split into two part; one released in 2018 and the other for 2019.

Check out the upcoming Marvel films and their projected release dates.

UPCOMING MARVEL STUDIOS FILMS:

Captain America: Civil War (May 6, 2016)
Doctor Strange (Nov. 4, 2016)
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 (May 5, 2017)
Thor: Ragnarok (July 27, 2017)
Black Panther (Nov. 3, 2017)
Marvel’s The Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 (May 4, 2018)
Captain Marvel (July 6, 2018)
Inhumans (Nov. 2, 2018)
Marvel’s The Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 (May 3, 2019)

Also revealed, or not revealed at the press event, the identity of who will play the high-publicized role of Stephen Vincent Strange or as well all know him, Doctor Strange.

For the past 24-hours, rumors had been circulating that Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch had been chosen for the role that many actors had been “attached” to.

Sadly, the confirmation many media outlets were trying to get did not come. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige told reporters that if Cumberbatch has been chosen to play the role, then they would have announced it at today’s event.

But then again, what Feige said might just be a way to take all the attention away from that so when they do confirm it, it will be a surprise.

Watch the First Trailer for ‘The Flash’

The CW announced last week that they would in fact be picking up The Flash starring Grant Gustin as nerdy, forensic assistant Barry Allen aka The Flash. Gustin made his debut as Allen during the first half of the CW’s other DC Comic inspired television show, Arrow and who can forget Oliver Queen’s (Stephen Amell) first words to the future superhero, “do his parents know he’s here?”

Well, things have changed since his debut like being struck by some powerful thing resulting in him being in a coma since his last appearance, according to Oliver’s bubbly IT genius, Felicity Smoak. While fans of Arrow were given the season two finale which we will not spoil for those that haven’t seen it yet, they also teased and gave us the first look at Gustin as The Flash, not just Barry.

Check out the first look below which at first you might think is just a preview for Arrow rather than The Flash.

And also keep in mind the phrase “show-off.”
