Ant-Man

Postby LotsoA113 » December 13th, 2014, 4:35 pm

The next Marvel adventure after Avengers: Age Of Ultron recently wrapped filming! It stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, a thief whose trained by Hank Pym, played by Michael Douglas, to become the superhero Ant-Man and pull off a massive heist. Not only is this cool to me as a Marvel fanboy to see Ant-Man on screen, but seeing flashbacks of Hank in the 60's fighting crime as Ant-Man should be cool to see, as we've never seen that time period in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Good, since IMDb still has it slated for July/August, but we've seen nothing but one concept poster and one SDCC teaser that's nobody's actually seen online. (The Michael Douglas one, not the Wright test footage from the last two or three years.)

And some dispute about whether Pym's "late wife" will be Janet (is she dead in the comics, atm?) or Pym's earlier wife from the original origin story? Are they going for history, or current-comic canon?

Janet will be depicted in flashback sequences, I have no idea if she'll be in the modern day portions of the story that make up the majority of the film (I'd say Meryl Streep should play an older Janet to match Michael's Hank, but I digress). One of the movies main character will be Hope Van Dyme, daughter of Hank and whose hairstyle bears a strong resemblance to Janet AKA The Wasp. Hmmmm.....

Well, there was this production still that was posted some months back.

I understand there was more footage shown at the New York Comic Con that got fans who saw it very excited.

The real (non-Wright) teaser had its SDCC no-camera rule extra-strictly enforced, so all that was ever leaked out was an audio recording and a poster, but the former sounded pretty good.
They're keeping the comic arc of Scott Lang stealing the suit from Pym and becoming the new replacement hero--with Douglas's grumpy/troubled post-Janet version of Pym mentoring him for the battle--but apart from that, we're suffering an overdue shortage of information.

Not to mention a flood of YouTube poseurs that a real trailer would normally wipe off the map by this point.

It's a spammer account, Ben. Trying to sneak through detection by reposting something that's already been written, only it's coming from a different thread.

And the teaser of the teaser just showed up full-size on IMDB--
As noted by only just wrapping up, don't expect too many special effects yet, though.

There's already a supposedly better fan edit of this online, where the music has been rescored to make some of the beats hit better. It seems Marvel wanted to provide a "soft" into to this that wouldn't detract from Agent Carter's debut, so expect bigger and better Ant-Man footage as the release gets closer.

The problem is they released the trailer too early. This was primarily to give Agent Carter a ratings boost (and Ant-Man a boost too, I guess), but clearly almost no special effects are done on this thing yet. Expect a big production budget increase as Disney hires more studios to have them done by July (although I still think they should've just kept the early November date).

An awesome new trailer just dropped with more cool effects showing off Ant-Man's shrinking powers and some of the movies humor!

I'm gonna make a wild guess and say that it will be this film, rather than Ultron, that includes a Spider-Man tease of some sort.
