I am counting the days until I get to see Ant-Man – just two weeks!! I have already heard so many rave reviews – and most of them from non-comic book readers. I would lie if I said I wasn’t a tad jealous of those that have already seen this film. My husband and I have already secured a date night for opening night and we can’t wait. We both read the comic books and knowing what hand Ant-Man has in many things – including the Avengers and something called the Dark Avengers – we are really hoping that Marvel steers that way. Dark Avengers would be, well, dark, so I am not sure they will go full blown, but we will have to wait and see. Ever since reading the Dark Avengers storyline, Scott Lang’s Ant-Man has been one of my favorite characters. Don’t get me wrong, I love Henry Pym, but Scott Lang truly brings something new to the suit – and I have a feeling Paul Rudd is going to capture that perfectly.
Speaking of Paul Rudd, on Wednesday he was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in front of the historic El Capitan Theatre (I have been there! Eek – read about that here)! How amazing is that! He got a plaque for himself – and a mini one for Ant-Man (which I find hilarious). I just had to share some of these amazing photos with you. Ant-Man Director Peyton Reed and Co-Star Michael Douglas were both there to help Paul celebrate. I love Paul Rudd – always have – and this just makes me even more excited for Ant-Man! Are you going to see it in theaters in two weeks?! You best bet I will be there!
The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man.” Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
Marvel’s “Ant-Man” stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly as Hope van Dyne, Corey Stoll as Darren Cross aka Yellowjacket, Bobby Cannavale as Paxton, Michael Peña as Luis, Tip “T.I.” Harris as Dave, Wood Harris as Gale, Judy Greer as Maggie, David Dastmalchian as Kurt, and Michael Douglas as Dr. Hank Pym. Directed by Peyton Reed and produced by Kevin Feige, p.g.a., Marvel’s “Ant-Man” delivers a high-stakes, tension-filled adventure on July 17, 2015.
