So, there *will* be an ANT-MAN 3, then.

I was wondering.

The Ant-Man corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe will continue to be Peyton Reed’s Place. The director, who helmed 2015’s Ant-Man and 2018’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, has signed on to helm a third Ant-Man movie, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Movie of the Week: Ant-Man.

I picked Ant-Man more or less as a reminder that you should probably start taking this opportunity to make sure that you’re checked out on the MCU. I sincerely doubt that Marvel’s going to pause in the middle of Avengers: Endgame just to let you to catch up.  And, honestly: can you really expect them to?  This is the last stage of an eleven-year ride, and the time for recaps have passed.

Plus, this is one of the fun ones.  You want to start with one of the fun ones.

The ‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ trailer.

Oh, OK. We’re good. Everything’s gonna be fine.

That looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun, actually. Especially the part where Dr. Pym is fairly obviously all “I don’t give a good goddam about how my suitcase-building will affect the rest of the MCU continuity that’s THEIR problem I got stuff to do.” When you think about it, they’ve been pretty careful so far in trying to minimize (heh) the disruptions from all this hyper-tech; but in the end, this is a superhero universe, and we all came here for human-sized Hello Kitty Pez dispensers being thrown at people. I am, as they say, down with it.

Comes out in July 2018.

So they’re doing a retro-snarky ANT-MAN on Disney XD

I love the colors and the aesthetic.  They wanted to get the old-school Marvel look, and I think they succeeded. I don’t mind the snark, given that Ant-Man was a movie that recognized the basic absurdity of its premise and decided to go have fun with it. This looks entertaining, but not particularly deep.  I like having that, every so often.

I would like them to give Michael Pena more to do in the MCU.

I mean, these were two of my favorite scenes in Ant Man.

The character’s not quite at sidekick level yet, but he’s definitely above ‘minion’ by the end of the flick.

PS: Yeah. Cannot wait for Ant Man and the Wasp. Yup, that’s what they’re calling it.

The ‘Ant-Man’ Honest Trailer.

A little old, but what the heck. Anyway, I’m struck by the way that Honest Trailers seems as tolerantly baffled as I am at how Marvel keeps managing to create decent, respectably good flicks out of the most unlikely raw material. I mean. Ant-Man. It should not have worked. But it did, to the point where I may now buy it off of Amazon.

FINALLY saw Ant-Man.

Had to be in 3-D, because otherwise I’d have had to stay up to see it. I thought it was pretty good. Had a lot of Chekov’s Items in it that got used, plot moved along, people who dig ants must have enjoyed all the shout-outs. Somebody on the Internet called it a heist flick, and it definitely was one of those. Not the best Marvel flick, but it was pretty spiff.

Now if they’d just make Squirrel Girl.

…So, how was Ant-Man?

I get the general impression that it was… pretty good and worth seeing in theaters, if not at Iron Man levels.  Which may be a bit of a relief – Marvel would start getting scary if it could turn anything into a $300 million domestic knockout, after all.  Still, I want a dang Squirrel Girl movie.

The Ant-Man trailer. The goram Ant-Man trailer.

How the Hell does Marvel keep DOING this?

What did Marvel do?  What bargain was struck?  When they opened that door into the Haunted Night, what did they see?

Annnnd it’s the Ant-Man teaser trailer.

This is the movie studio equivalent of Marvel taking a fighting stance, lifting one hand up with the palm out, and wiggling its fingers in classic Come at me, bro fashion. If they make this work, nobody will ever be allowed to say a goram word to Marvel Studios, ever again. It’s very exciting.
