Ant-Man will likely be the best superhero movie of the year. Following in the wake of the huge Avengers: Age of Ultron, it was a canny move for Marvel to go small – it enabled the Peyton Redd directed movie to cheerfully subvert superhero movies while being a terrific one itself.
As an Edgar Wright fan, I can tell you that his fingerprints are all over the movie – who else would’ve come up with the idea to spoof every movie fight on a moving train ever in such a crazy way? Am I right? But while Ant-Man may not have the unique flourishes Wright might have provided, it still strikes almost all the right notes to be the most loopily funny and purely entertaining Marvel movie not called Guardians of the Galaxy.
Marvel’s Ant-Man isn’t just a superhero movie – it’s also a heist flick. Marvel has released several new clips to look at the heist aspect of the film and introduce the film’s villain, Yellowjacket – plus much, much more.
Check them out after the jump. Marvel’s Ant-Man opens on Friday, July 17th.
The roster of big, medium and small names who made a splash in comedy, TV and film following their appearance in Wet Hot American Summer is pretty much legendary. If you don’t believe me, you haven’t seen the movie.

Barely 24 hours after the news that Marvel’s Ant-Man had begun production, we have the first photo of Paul Rudd as Ant-Man-to-be, Scott Lang. He looks a little worse for wear as he stands framed by one of the most recognizable landmarks in America. Check out the photo after the jump.

Just as Warners/DC moved Superman v Batman to go head-to-head with an as yet unnamed Marvel movie, Disney/Marvel has moved Ant-Man up a couple weeks to square off against Pan – the movie that Warners slotted into the former Superman v Batman date, July 17, 2015.
Michael Douglas has stepped into some of the biggest–or should that be tiniest?–shoes of his career. The two-time Academy Award-winning actor will join director Edgar Wright and Paul Rudd in Marvel’s "Ant-Man," hitting theaters July 31, 2015. That means Paul Rudd will be playing Scott Lang.
