Quantcast

It doesn't seem like it's been three years since Marvel brought Ant-Man to the big screen, but is has been. 2015 was a banner year for me personally, and part of that was being invited to interview the cast and crew of Ant-Man in Los Angeles. Fast-forward a few years and Ant-Man has shown up in Captain America: Civil War, will soon appear in Avengers: Infinity War, and come July it's time for a team-up as Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly suit-up for Marvel Studios' ANT-MAN AND THE WASP! At the premiere of Black Panther in Los Angeles, it was teased that the masses would soon see the first trailer for the next Marvel adventure, and this morning that was a promise delivered. Here's your first-look at ANT-MAN AND THE WASP!

It was three years ago that Marvel's ANT-MAN first hit the big screen, and after appearances in Captain America: Civil War and the forthcoming Avengers: Infinity War, he'll be back in his second full-length movie, ANT-MAN AND THE WASP this summer. It's a team effort this time around, and the whole crew from the first film is back for another adventure...

Marvel Studios' ANT-MAN still holds-up as one of our favorite installments of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, a film that I covered extensively back in 2015. After my own children shot their own sequel two years ago, now comes official word that production has begun on ANT-MAN & THE WASP starring Paul Rudd (“Captain America: Civil War,”  “The Fundamentals of Caring”), Evangeline Lilly (“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” “Lost”),  Michael Peña (“The Martian,” Fury”) and Academy Award® winner Michael Douglas (“Behind the Candelabra,” “Wall Street”),  who all return to the roles they originated in the 2015 box office hit “Ant-Man.”  Bobby Cannavale (“Vinyl,” “Chef”), Judy Greer (“War for the Planet of the Apes,” “Wilson”), Abby Ryder Fortson (“Togetherness,” Transparent), Tip “T.I.” Harris (“Sleepless,” “Get Hard”) and David Dastmalchian (“Twin Peaks,” “The Belko Experiment”) also reprise their supporting roles.

As we sit here on the edge of one year, and on the cusp of another, it's come time to reflect on all that 2015 has brought us, and everything that 2016 may have in-store. Our social feeds are filled with tales of triumph and sorrow, as our friends and colleagues both celebrate their victories, and mourn their losses. It's always this time of year, among the melancholy post-Christmas days when the "holiday high" wears off, that everyone either can't turn the calendar quick enough, or they wish to bask in a year of successes that they hope will never end. For our family, this was a great year - and professionally, it was likely my best year, maybe not from a financial standpoint, but one of adventure and accomplishment in all of the areas in which I'm hoping to achieve. Time for a little horn-tooting, because it's all downhill from here...

MARVEL's ANT-MAN was not only one of my favorite movies of the year (review here), but a film I was fortunate to be able to cover first-hand as a guest of Disney/Marvel earlier this summer. While interviews with the cast and filmmakers was certainly a huge highlight, back at home the wide array of cool toys and collectibles spawned from the 12th entry into the MARVEL Cinematic Universe made sure to keep our whole family busy with a ton of unique adventures. During my ANT-MAN journey, I'd taken pictures with my MARVEL Infinite Legends ANT-MAN figure by Hasbro, doing a little "Toyography" here and there to have some fun. Little did I know that my ant-sized toys would eventually have their own to-scale copy of this week's Blu-ray release to call their own.

MARVEL's ANT-MAN scored big this summer by becoming the first true "family film" in the MARVEL Cinematic Universe. I covered the film extensively, interviewing the entire principle cast (including Paul Rudd, Evangeline LillyCorey StollMichael DouglasT.I., Michael Pena and David Dastmalchian), Director Peyton Reed, and MARVEL Studios Chief Kevin Feige. In speaking with all of those folks, I had to talk toys - and the one thing that really stood out is how excited Paul Rudd, Corey Stoll and Michael Douglas were about getting the LEGO treatment. Out of all the toys and collectibles that hit stores this summer, it was becoming a LEGO Minifigure that truly made some eyes light up. Released as part of the LEGO MARVEL Super Heroes line, the ANT-MAN FINAL BATTLE is a terrific, 183-piece set recommended for ages 6+, and one that lands as a featured pick in my 2015 Holiday Wish Guide at THE ROCK FATHER Magazine.
