So let me just say I have absolute faith in Marvel. Last year I was so happily surprised with how amazing Guardians of the Galaxy turned out to be but Ant-Man truly solidified my faith. MARVEL CAN DO NO WRONG. Ant-Man was simply fANtastic. It is a well-balanced film and Paul Rudd is the perfect guy for this role. There was plenty of humor and cool action sequences and a really great supporting cast (T.I. surprisingly). Falcon made an awesome cameo in one of the highlights of the film: a hilarious fight scene with Ant-Man when he tries to rob the new Avenger’s facility.
Ant-Man is consistently entertaining throughout and even made me think ants are cute. While I felt we didn’t see enough of the awesome looking villain Yellow-Jacket, at least we got a sneak peek of Wasp in the mid-credit scene.
Verdict: 8/10 I seriously recommend this film, its great fun (and for any Marvel fans theres a bunch of cool easter eggs to look out for). Oh and as usual make sure you stick around for a sneak peek at next year’s Civil War! You won’t regret it!
So today Marvel unveiled their phase three lineup for what movies are to come in the next six years. This is super exciting for me as a total comic nerd, DC comics unveiled their movie lineup over a week ago, but I don’t really give a shit about DC, and Marvel’s is way more awesome.
Here’s what’s queued up:
Avengers: Age of Ultron in 2015
Ant-Man in 2015
Captain America: Civil War in 2016
Doctor Strange in 2016
Guardians of the Galaxy 2 in 2017
Thor: Ragnarok in 2017
Black Panther in 2017
Avengers: Infinity War Part 1 in 2018
Captain Marvel in 2018
Inhumans in 2018
Avengers: Infinity War Part 2 in 2019
I’m super (pun intended) excited for Captain Marvel, since we will finally have our first female superhero lead, Ms. Marvel! The last Avengers will be split into two films, so hopefully we will get to see some of the other members of the Avengers including the big battle with Thanos and the Infinity Gauntlet. Inhumans, which is about an advanced race of badass super-people, is particularly of interest to me, it makes sense that they would have their own movie since in the comics the Inhumans were involved in the Infinity events when Thanos attacks their planet. So we might end up getting more of them in the final Avengers installment, and who knows, maybe some sequels will be in store for them in Marvel’s phase four. Keep them coming Marvel!
