I am excited about this one. I love the trailer.June 1, 2015 at 9:11 pm #187830
Antman is a unique character,
and this production has been a long time coming.
This could be a very interesting film with an off-beat script, an engaging “superhero”, and an edge unlike any other Marvel film. I’m hoping for a lot.June 1, 2015 at 9:26 pm #187831
I know some people are expecting this film to not do so well but I think it is ging to do very good… Poor Scarlett Johansson. I know she wants a Black Widow Movie and she probably thinking that if they can do a movie on Ant Man, than they can do a movie on Black Widow.June 2, 2015 at 5:50 am #187832
I really haven’t been impressed by the trailers so far. The only thing that’s got me excited is Corey Stoll as the villain. I’m sure this will do well at the box office, and hopefully that leads to Stoll getting more work. Marvel’s villains are very frequently underwritten, but I have a feeling he’ll have enough to do to showcase his talent.June 2, 2015 at 6:08 am #187833
Well, I’ve been a fan of Paul Rudd since “Clueless”. I’m hoping this does very well for him and in an entirely different way. Then, there’s Corey Stoll.
Edgar Wright heading the writing team is also encouraging. I generally LOVE his work. And Joe Cornish. His “Attack The Block” is impressive.
I think this film could surprise. Perhaps not such a surprise with the anticipated crowds, but the paid critics as well.June 27, 2015 at 7:25 pm #187834

Ant-Man isn’t really one of my favorite Marvel heroes but I’m watching this for Corey Stoll.June 29, 2015 at 9:29 am #187837
It seems like the marketing is really ramping up now. It’s shaping up to be a big hit. I don’t expect it to carry like GotG last year, but it will get a few hundred million pretty quickly.June 30, 2015 at 1:37 pm #187838
James Gunn has nothing but praise for ‘Ant-Man’ in his very thoughtful, warm-hearted review (including a shoutout to Edgar Wright):
“Ant-Man may just be my favorite Marvel film since Jon Favreau’s Iron Man (well, maybe excluding one film to which I’m partial),” Gunn wrote. “Honestly, the movie is a complete blast! I was so happy after seeing it. It’s never boring for a second and it’s hilarious and warm throughout. It doesn’t get caught up in the webbing of its own science-fiction concept like so many movies do these days, remaining simple and elegant. It’s a part of the Marvel universe without being ruled by that fact. Paul Rudd is nuanced and charming and funny and is a surprisingly natural fit as a modern superhero (side-fact – Paul must be a nice guy, because he and I dated the same girl in college, and yet I still love him). Michael Peña KILLS IT – this movie is going to make him a huge star. My old pal Judy Greer (she was Deadly Girl to my Minute Man in The Specials many moons ago) is great in a small role. And Michael Douglas is awesome.”
Gunn went on to praise director Peyton Reed for doing “an incredible job” with the film, and also called attention to former Ant-Man director Edgar Wright for his contributions.
“His spirit is felt through the entire project, and there is no doubt everyone owes him a huge debt of gratitude,” Gunn wrote of Wright. “I left the theater incredibly happy. So often I see movies by people I love which are just okay – it’s great to love a movie as much as I love the people who made it.”June 30, 2015 at 7:09 pm #187839
“…remaining simple and elegant.” Marvel doing what? It’d be a new trick. Age of Ultron is exactly the opposite.
Can’t wait!July 2, 2015 at 5:53 pm #187840
Im so happy for Michael Peña, because he was horrific in “Gracepoint” with that terribly written character, and everyone knows he does have the talent, so , that is great news.August 1, 2015 at 10:38 pm #187841
