In 21 August, the Evangeline Lilly movie “Little Evil” the trailer was release.
Imagine if The Omen were a comedy. Halloween is coming early on Netflix as they’ll be giving birth to the son of Satan on September 1, 2017.
Adam Scott, who probably wants you to forget he starred in Hellraiser: Bloodline, stars in the horror comedy Little Evil as Gary (Scott), who just married Samantha (Evangeline Lilly) only to find out that her 6-year-old son (Owen Atlas) is the Antichrist. Here’s the kicker:
The film was written and directed by Eli Craig, who was behind the cult horror comedy Tucker & Dale vs. Evil! The trailer just premiered and gives huge nods to The Omen, while also delivering all the laughs of Craig’s Tucker & Dale. This looks like an awesome pre-fall primer to set the stage for Netflix’s massive October, which includes the second season of “Stranger Things”.
“From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink: “Ant-Man and The Wasp.” In the aftermath of “Captain America: Civil War,” Scott Lang (Rudd) grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne (Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas) with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.”
Next month, Ant-Man will shrink back into his suit when production on the hero’s next movie begins. Marvel Studios will begin production on Ant-Man and the Wasp in July, prompting fans to hone in on any early rumors about the project. Now, a few reported details about the movie have hit the Internet, and the notes have fans eyeing some new characters.
Over on MCU Exchange, the site claims a source of theirs has provided info about Ant-Man and the Wasp’s new characters. The site reports that Hannah John-Kamen is playing someone named Dawn who is described as “charismatic, eccentric, unpredictable, and damaged.” The site notes there are no obvious Marvel characters associated with Dawn, but fans can make a case for John-Kamen playing Dawn Starr.
In the comics, the surname Starr is of note thanks to Elihas Starr. The man is known as Egghead to most readers, and he acts as a villain to Ant-Man. It could be that Dawn will play a relative of Egghead’s as Ant-Man and the Wasp tries to make the slapstick villain more serious.
The report claims John-Kamen will be playing one of three new characters in the Ant-Man sequel. The film is also expected to introduce Janet van Dyne in a more substantial role. The iconic Marvel character was briefly shown in the first Ant-Man film when the Wasp sacrificed herself to the Quantum Realm during a mission. The sequel may delve further into his MIA status as Hank Pym gains the nerve to search for Janet one more time.
As for the third character, it looks like Ant-Man and the Wasp may bring in a new love interest. A character named Victoria has been rumored, and she is described as being both unhinged and smart. The report suggests Victoria will be a love interest for Luis as Scott Lang’s best friend has already been confirmed for the sequel.
Ant-Man and the Wasp currently has a 3.93 out of 5 ComicBook.com User Anticipation Rating. Let us know how much you’re looking forward to Ant-Man and the Wasp by giving it your own ComicBook.com User Anticipation Rating below. Ant-Man and the Wasp is set to open in theaters on July 6, 2018.
In Ant-Man, forced out of his own company by former protégé Darren Cross, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) recruits the talents of Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), a master thief just released from prison. Lang becomes Ant-Man, trained by Pym and armed with a suit that allows him to shrink in size, possess superhuman strength and control an army of ants. The miniature hero must use his new skills to prevent Cross, also known as Yellowjacket, from perfecting the same technology and using it as a weapon for evil.
Ant-Man was directed by Peyton Reed, with a screenplay by Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish and Adam McKay & Paul Rudd, and stars Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Tip “T.I.” Harris, Anthony Mackie, Wood Harris, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, and Michael Douglas.
Peyton Reed brought some unique sequences to life in Ant-Man, but according to one Ant-Man & The Wasp cast member, the sequel will be mind-blowing. Thanks to Ant-Man’s shrinking abilities, the small scaled action brought personal stakes with it, but also the chance to have some of the most interesting set pieces in the superhero genre. Whether it was the briefcase fight or battling atop Thomas the Train, Reed helped separate his superhero movie from the rest – and that was with less time than desired. Reed joined Ant-Man following Edgar Wright’s departure, but filled the director’s chair in grand fashion, resulting in him returning to give his version, and his alone, for the sequel.
As the title indicates, Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp will play a major part in the story and give Reed another tiny hero to play with, while Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang has clearly learned some new tricks after becoming Giant Man in Captain America: Civil War. Their power sets on paper bring a fun dynamic with them briefly teased in this concept art, but their co-star David Dastmalchian says the results will blow audience’s minds.
Dastmalchian spoke to EW briefly about what fans can expect to see in the sequel, and apparently it will feature plenty of things they’ve never seen before. How exactly Reed and co. will go about delivering never before seen moments in the genre remains to be seen, but Dastmalchian’s comments should begin to generate further excitement for the sequel.
“I can say Ant-Man & The Wasp is going to do things in the Marvel universe that they haven’t gotten an opportunity to do yet and I just got some tidbits the other day and they’re mind-blowing. It’s going to be really cool.”
Dastmalchian appeared in Ant-Man as Kurt, one of the members of the “Antourage,” and recently confirmed that he too will be featured in the sequel. To what level the Russian hacker and his Antourage partners Luis (Michael Pena) and Dave (T.I.) will appear is not known, but it should be expected they’ll play similar sized supporting roles. The question then becomes if any of them will be involved with these mind-blowing moments, or if they’ll strictly be used for comic relief like before.
Production is slated to begin on the sequel this summer, and yet much of the movie remains a mystery. There has yet to be word on the story and how/if it will deal with the fallout of Avengers: Infinity War, but they’ve also managed to not reveal a villain or any additional castings yet. These announcements should be coming soon, but how this connects to the search for the original Wasp, Janet Van Dyne, is unclear. Hopefully some of the mystery begins to fall aside soon so everyone can begin to gain an understanding of what they can expect beyond the mind-blowing moments.
In April 21, Evangeline Lilly talked about your character Hope Van (The Wasp) for the website Collider:
“It’s something we’re excited about. For me as a comic nerd, I always thought of Ant-Man and Wasp as a team and that’s a lot of what the second movie is really about is how they work together, what their personal and professional relationships are like. To show her finally fully formed in this movie is really exciting. We really get to introduce this character into that universe. I mean we’ve introduced the character, but we haven’t seen her with her full power set and everything, so to me she’s not a supporting character in this movie. It’s every bit as much her movie as it is Scott Lang’s.”
The wait for Ant-Man and the Wasp is getting smaller and smaller. With Peyton Reed and crew about to head to Atlanta to begin production, the director is giving insight into the new suits and technology for his titular heroes.
During an open house for press at Marvel’s Los Angeles office on Monday, Reed showcased storyboard images for his superhero sequel and the stories behind them.
“Some will end up in the movie, some won’t end up in the movie, but it’s really a way to R&D stuff before you put it to camera,” he says, noting an intriguing image that finds Luis’ (Michael Peña) van in the mouth of a dog. Despite some reporter’s assumptions, this wasn’t a giant dog, but the vehicle had taken on the shrinking power usually reserved for Ant-Man (Paul Rudd).
“There was one idea that Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) has forwarded the shrinking and growing technology so that it’s not just necessarily the suits that are the vessels,” he shared. “Maybe it could be vehicles or something else as well.”
The advancement of the technology is having widespread affect on the entire Ant-Man world, including the evolution of the suits for the pint-sized character and his new partner Hope van Dyne a.k.a. the Wasp (Evangeline Lilly).
Teasing that the latest outfits “can do even new and stranger things,” Reed revealed that Ant-Man’s gear is a mesh of what was seen in the first film and Captain America: Civil War, albeit with a few updates.
“For Ant-Man specifically, in that first movie, the suit, intentionally so, is kind of a relic,” he said, vaguely acknowledging that Giant-Man is likely to factor into the sequel as well. “It represents his past, so this is really the new iteration that is the modern version of the tech.”
Noticeably present alongside the images of Ant-Man and Wasp’s suits was the original Wasp suit of Hope’s mother, Janet, who was briefly glimpsed in an Ant-Man flashback. That leads to the looming question, will we see her follow Scott’s lead and return from the quantum realm?
Trying to avoid letting any spoilers slip throughout the presentation, Reed slyly responds, “Only time will tell.”
Ant-Man and the Wasp hits theaters on July 6, 2018.
At her spotlight panel at Emerald City Comic Con, Ant-Man star Evangeline Lilly was asked about her role in the film, as the very first fan question, of course. Lilly said that she was considering retiring from acting after LOST, until Peter Jacksonoffered her a great role in the Hobbit trilogy. She might have retired from acting again after that, but then something else happened.
“Then Edgar Wright called me,” Lilly recalled. However, at the time, she wasn’t familiar with the Marvel cinematic universe. “The only marvel film I’d seen at that time was Iron Man, and I didn’t even know it was a Marvel film. So I was like, I don’t want to do a stupid superhero movie.”
Lilly braced for boos, but quickly recovered, saying she was excited to work with Wright. (Wright eventually left the project over creative differences, but Lilly stayed on.)
“And Paul Rudd, which makes it even cooler,” she added. “Who casts Paul Rudd as a superhero? Nobody. So I was like, I gotta check out these Marvel guys and see what they’re up to, and apparently they were up to really cool ****.”
And then, she totally made up for the earlier Marvel slight with a focused shot at rival DC Comics.
“How have I missed these guys who are making really cool superheroes who don’t take themselves too seriously,” Lilly said of Marvel, before calling out an example of the opposite: “DC films.”
Ooooooooooohhhhhhh! Massive, well-deserved cheers were basked in, and a salacious article was written.
As Evangeline Lilly explained, “now a year from now I get to put on a wasp costume and buzz around” when Ant-Man and The Wasp hits theaters on July 6, 2018.
The gold standard in TV farewells, from ‘Friends’ and ‘The Shield’ to ‘Mary Tyler Moore’ and… our No. 1 of all time!
There was never going to be any way to wrap up every last hanging story line from six seasons of serialized Island mayhem, but Lost‘s two-and-a-half hour finale proved to be a high-energy epic romp, even with plenty of questions unanswered. The revelation that the Sideways world was a purgatory-ish afterlife led to a parade of tear-inducing reunions (Charlie and Claire, plus Aaron!), while the Island story line ended with a final showdown between Jack and Smokey. We dare you not to cry at the final moments, with their shot-for-shot callback to the very first scene of the series. —Darren Franich

Ant Man 2 release date confirmed ‘Ant-Man 2’ Release Finally Confirmed: Expect The Wasp To Enter The Movie Superhero Cast As Well
Ant Man’s triumph in performing great at the box office proves that Marvel has what it takes to bring out good superhero movies. This has also led to a second Ant Man in production. Ant Man 2 release date has finally been confirmed for July 8, 2018. However, the date still could be altered with a delay or an early release.
Ant Man 2 will be called as “Ant-Man and the Wasp”
As per now, Marvel does not confirm much about the upcoming movie. But, it is quite assumable that the Wasp will be a part of the movie. Paul Rudd will reprise his role as Sott Lang. He recently portrayed the character in “Captain America: Civil War.” Hpe Van Dyne’s role played by Evangeline Lilly is also confirmed to come back in the second film.
Ant Man Technology and Quantum Physics
The technology behind shrinking a man to the size of an ant has quite a number of theories behind it. But, the most regarded one is based on a concept in Quantum Physics. As per Dr. Spiros Michalakis of the California Institute of Technology, the vision of shrinking comes through a method of creating smaller atoms.
But, the super human strength portrayed in the movie is not true. Michalakis says that if a human is shrunk to the size of an ant, then he would be really strong as per the size of an ant, but not than a regular human. But, “Ant Man 2” is a movie and fiction is possible in entertainment.
The Aftermath of the “Ant Man 2” release
As per CinemaBlend, Marvel’s third phase planning involves shifting of the “Ant Man 2” release date. The date was meant for “Black Panther” movie which is now scheduled for February 16, 2018. This movie is now planned for a release before “Avengers: Infinity War – Part 1.” And to be honest, this is much more logical keeping in mind the plot.
There is no official trailer for the “Ant Man 2” for now as the movie’s production will start in Q1 2017. But, there might soon be a teaser trailer out which would give us a clue of the upcoming Marvel superhero movie. For the time being, let us count on the two other superhero flicks – “Thor: Ragnarok” releasing in October and “Spider-Man: Homecoming” coming out this July.
Funko, the company that set the internet on fire with its “Golden Girls” action figures that debuted at New York Comic Con, and which has immortalized characters from every corner of pop culture from “Gilmore Girls” to the Marvel Universe to “The Walking Dead,” is back: with characters from “Lost.”
ABC News can exclusively reveal that the newest entries in the company’s hugely popular Pop! figure line will be Sawyer, John Locke, Kate Austen, Jack, Hurley, and the Man in Black from ABC’s beloved show “Lost.”
Whether you collect the figures, or unbox them just to try to work out that super-confusing finale, we’ll leave up to you — but check out the selection on Funko.com.
