Now that we have Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, Hollyood has turned our casting attention back to Marvel, with an update on Edgar Wright's Ant-Man with Variety reporting that former Lost star Evangeline Lilly is in talks to join the film as a romantic lead. Fans of the comic will undoubtedly remember Ant Man's wife and cohort Janet van Dyne aka Wasp as a regular member of The Avengers, so seeing her suit up in the Ant-Man stand alone is expected.

It does sound as though Wright is changing the book signifigantly, making Janet the daughter of Hank Pym, rather than romantic interest. But with the news that Paul Rudd will be playing Scott Lang the theif who stole the supre suit from an aging Hank Pym (played by Michael Douglas), putting Wasp in a younger role seems logical enough.

Personally I would prefer the often rumored Rashida Jones over Evangeline Lilly. What do you think?

About a year ago, Marvel announced its movie schedule for the next five years, but it looks like it's time to update that schedule. A sequel to Marvel's smallest film (pun intended) to date, Ant-Man, is officially on the books. Called Ant-Man and The Wasp, this super dup starring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly will take over Black Panther's slot on July 6th, 2018.

Marvel seems to be sticking pretty hard to the "no more than three movies a year" rule moving Black Panther up to February 16th 2018, and Captain Marvel back to March 8th, 2019. Marvel's first female solo superhero, Captain Marvel has had her debut movie pushed back twice now, the first time occurring when Spider-Man came home to Marvel.

Marvel also announced three dates for movies in 2020 which is most likely the beginning of Phase 4. May 1st, July 10th, and November 6th will be the first Marvel movies of next decade. (Prediction: Spider-Man 2, Guardians of the Galaxy 3, Blade 4)

The Official Marvel Schedule (As of October 2015)

  • 5/6/2016 - Captain America: Civil War
  • 11/4/2016 - Doctor Strange
  • 5/5/2017 - Guardians of the Galaxy 2
  • 7/28/2017 - Spider-Man
  • 11/3/2017 - Thor: Ragnarok
  • 2/16/2018 - Black Panther
  • 5/4/2018 - Avengers: Infinity War Pt. 1
  • 7/6/2018 - Ant-Man and The Wasp
  • 3/8/2019 - Captain Marvel
  • 5/3/2019 - Avengers: Infinity War Pt. 2
  • 7/12/2019 - Inhumans
  • 5/1/2020 - Unknown
  • 7/10/2020 - Unknown
  • 11/6/2020 - Unknown

Add in another 4-5 movies a year from X-Men/DC and you'll get a sense of where all your money is going over the next five years. Hope you like Superheroes!

Newly Revealed Marvel Concept Art Tells Us A Lot About The Future Their Movie Universe


We're right smack in the middle of Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic strategy. With Captain America: The Winter Soldier releasing in a couple of weeks, ABC aired an hour long special: Marvel Studios: Assembling a Universe last night. Not a lot was shown, but some of the concept art is leaving me guessing about the rest of Phase 2 and even a little bit of Phase 3.

Ant-Man's Ant-Sized Billboards Are Amazing


Marvel's continued their tiny viral marketing campaign for July's Ant-Man with some amazingly tiny billboards. While the trailers are down-playing the humor of the next Marvel franchise, the other marketing channels certainly aren't taking themselves too seriously.
