Sorry, Paul Rudd, Antboy Beat You To The Adorable Superhero Movie Punch [VIDEO]

Seriously, what are the odds Paul Rudd will look this adorable in his Ant-Man movie costume? The synopsis for this directed film is as follows, “Twelve-year-old Pelle leads a dreadfully dull life in his small Danish town, until a bite from a very special ant endows him with incredible powers. With the aid of his nerdy, comic book-obsessed classmate Wilhelm, he adopts the cape and cowl of a new, headline-grabbing superhero: Antboy! But, as Pelle soon discovers, with great power comes great responsibility — and when a villain named Flea begins to terrorize his town, he must mature into a new and extraordinary role. Will he realize in time that sometimes your uniqueness is your greatest strength?” In theaters this weekend!

Marvel’s Assembling a Universe Gives Us Our First Look at Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver

Instead of Agents of SHIELD, last night ABC aired an hour long special Assembling a Universe, that provided updates from producers and directors on the direction and planning at work in the production of Guardians of the Galaxy, Ant-Man, and The Avengers: Age of Ultron. We’ve collected some of the concept art and screenshots (from Edgar Wright’s secret proof-of-concept short for the Ant-Man movie) here, including the first depictions of Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, the first mutants to make an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Patrick Wilson In Talks to Join Ant-Man, Probably Not As Another Version of Ant-Man

Two Ant-Men—Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas—seems about the maximum for any particular film, so I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that the character Patrick Wilson is in talks to play, about whom we know exactly nothing, isn’t a third. But, really, that’s all speculation on my part. Maybe he is up for the role of a third Ant-Man. Maybe everyone in this movie is playing Ant-Man. Including Evangeline Lilly, if she ends up getting cast.

Here’s what that film might look like:

Marvel and Warner Bros. Continue to Square Off With Release Dates

It seems that Marvel and Warner Bros. will be even more actively squaring off in theaters in 2015 and 2016 as they are increasingly setting their release dates on the same day.  Whether or not this is a good move for either studio remains to be seen, but they certainly have committed to it.  Marvel just moved Ant-Man’s release date up two weeks to July 17th, 2015, which you may recognize as the previous release date of Batman vs. Superman before it was moved to 2016.  The Batman vs. Superman movie, of course, is  now being released on the same date as an untitled Marvel movie.  And this new release date for Ant-Man means that it will be going up against WB’s as-yet-untitled Peter Pan film.

Ant-Man News: Michael Douglas Speaks, More Casting & Wasp Rumors

We admit, we were taken back when Marvel Entertainment announced Michael Douglas was joining the cast of Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man film as Ant-Man Hank Pym. But our next thought was, what about The Wasp?? Well, we’ve got some new rumory information on that front plus the possible addition of another actor and Douglas explaining why he took on the role.

Marvel Confirms Michael Douglas is Hank Pym; Where Does This Leave the Wasp?

Marvel Entertainment has announced what many people suspected: Paul Rudd, while he will be playing the protagonist of a movie called Ant-Man, will not be playing the original Ant-Man, Hank Pym. Rudd will be playing Scott Lang, the second character to fill the superhero identity of Ant-Man. Michael Douglas has been cast as an older Hank Pym, and that leaves one significant question: what does the movie plan to do with Pym’s long time partner in crimefighting, Janet van Dyne, the Wasp?
