Ant-Man & The Wasp: Get Your First Look.


Ant-Man was a fun movie but the sequel looks waaaay better. Marvel Studios has released the first trailer for Ant-Man and The Wasp today and it gives us our first look at what to expect from the movie. There’s no mention of Janet Van Dyne here but we do get plenty of other big reveals, including a sneak peek at The Ghost, details on what happened to Scott Lang after Captain America: Civil War and more.

Even more interesting is getting to see The Wasp in action. Her powers clearly work a lot differently to Ant-Man’s and her wings and blasters both look pretty formidable as she takes on some goons.  It looks like director Peyton Reed is really upping the ante in terms of what we’ll see visually in Ant-Man and The Wasp because buildings, vehicles, and even a Pez dispenser shrink and increase in size here. What do you guys think of this first trailer for the sequel? Sound off below.

Avengers Infinity War: Day One Documentary.


ne2lg0p3c84v53_1_b

To the closer followers of Marvel, and the mechanics behind their super hero films, Christmas came early last night when Marvel released a short “documentary” about Avengers Infinity War.  The video is quite informative, and gives the laymen some news they will be excited about, and the comic book connoisseur some things to be excited about.  (Why doesn’t Thor have his Hammer, and are Tony’s new suits automated, or is building them for himself.)  Regardless of how deep movie goers get into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, the video below provides a very interesting look into the 3rd Avengers installment.

The Road To ‘Civil War’.


Captain+America-+Civil+War

The American Civil War… just kidding.  This has nothing to do with any of that.  I had the incredible opportunity to see Captain America: Civil War today, and I will not spoil anything.  However before I hit the secret Disney/Marvel screening, I took a look at a YouTube playlist of all the current Marvel Cinematic Universe trailers (which you can find here), and in the process, I stumbled across a video from the amazing editors at ‘MCU Exchange’ titled “Road To Civil War”.  This is a wonderfully put together 7 minute video that shows the progression of the MCU up until Captain America: Civil War.  Check out the complete wrap up below. Civil War hits theaters on Thursday May 5th in the U.S.

Cap vs. Ironman… Move Over, Now It’s Nathan Deal vs. Disney.


Georgia’s governor, Nathan Deal, has until May 3 to either sign or veto a bill that proposes to allow a faith based organization to refuse property and service to anyone who “violates such faith based organization’s sincerely held religious belief” according to CNET.

This is a bill that supporters say defends “religious liberties” but others point out that all it really does is legalize discrimination, particularly toward gay people.  And this issue is more than just letting a bakery refuse to make a cake for a gay wedding, this “protection” reportedly extends to hiring practices as well.

Disney and Marvel, who do a lot of business in Georgia have thrown their weight around with this statement:

Disney and Marvel are inclusive companies, and although we have had great experiences filming in Georgia, we will plan to take our business elsewhere should any legislation allowing discriminatory practices be signed into state law.

This is a pretty big deal, ‘Captain America:Civil War’ was made in Georgia and the latest ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ is filming there now.  Big budget productions spend a lot of money and they aren’t the only ones threatening to find an alternative location. According to Variety, AMC and Viacom are also not so subtly suggesting that Georgia better not sign that into law. AMC said this:

As a company, AMC Networks believes that discrimination of any kind is reprehensible,” a company spokesman said. “We applaud Governor Deal’s leadership in resisting a previous version of this divisive legislation and urge him to reject the current version as well.

And Viacom issued this statement:

Viacom is proud to champion diversity and acceptance, which are core values of our company. We have enjoyed doing business in Georgia for many years and we urge Governor Deal to continue to resist and reject the patently discriminatory laws being proposed.

So many productions potentially leaving the state could mean huge economic losses and a growing film industry would be shattered. But lets thank Captain America and Disney for standing against injustice.

Super Bowl 50’s Captain America TV Spot.


Screen Shot 2016-02-07 at 4.31.40 PM

Everyone knows that the Super Bowl is rife with new trailers, and exciting premieres, already we’ve seen ‘The Jungle Book’ and ‘Jason Bourne’ debut trailers, but the most exciting trailer by far of a film we’ve already seen a glimpse of, was ‘Captain America: Civil War’.  Filled with new looks at characters, and an ominous overtone, the ONLY thing wrong with this trailer is that there’s still no view of Spider-man.  (However, I’d rather wait until the actual movie to be surprised, so I’m not too upset by it.)

The New Avengers Trailer… Finally With The Vision
