Search Results: ant-man and the wasp (76)

If you have been following me for a while than you know I was out in LA earlier this year to help promote the in theater release of Ant-Man and The Wasp. I interviewed most of the cast (Paul Rudd does not age and Evangeline Lilly is just as amazing as you would think) as well as the Director Peyton Reed. All those interviews can be found here on my site. I also got to see the movie before it came out, and I loved it so much I still went and saw it opening weekend.

One of my favorite things about my job is getting to talk to directors and producers about all the behind the scenes and planning of films. Things like that really interest me so when I met with Director Peyton Reed about Ant-Man and The Wasp, the morning after seeing the movie, I was so excited and anxious. I wanted to know every little detail and everything that went through his head because this movie is everything. The first thing we talked about was the mid and post credit scenes (read more about that here), and then we moved on to this hilarious movie!

WARNING: THIS ARTICLE IS FILLED WITH SPOILERS FROM ANT-MAN AND THE WASP! If you have not seen it and do not want any spoilers, please come back after you have seen the movie. Now that Ant-Man and The Wasp has been out for a week, let’s discuss it. This movie was brilliant, if you ask me. Filled with humor, exactly what I would want in an Ant-Man movie. But honestly, the girls take center stage in this one and kick some serious butt. And then, well, read on to see how Marvel built me back up after Infinity War with much needed humor, only to rip out a tiny piece of my soul during the mid-credit scene.

In the Marvel Comics Ghost is a man, not a woman. So when I first saw that Hannah John-Kamen would portray Ghost in Ant-Man and The Wasp, I was really intrigued. I could not wait to see what Marvel was up to. Well, color me impressed because she killed it as Ghost. The story, her background, I loved it all! After watching the movie the night before, I was really eager to chat with Hannah about how incredible she was on screen, and how it felt to take that villain, if you can call her that, to a whole new level.

Laurence Fishburne plays Dr. Bill Foster in Ant-Man and The Wasp perfectly. If you know anything about the comics, you know that Bill Foster is a BIG deal in them (pun intended), so I was really excited to talk with Laurence about his thoughts on what we might see in the future of the MCU. Laurence actually started the interview by telling us how impressed by us he is and that it was a pleasure for him to be speaking with us (awwww!). He then launched right into the fact that he is a comic reader – which had me over the moon as a comic book geek. I wish we could have sat and talked theories and story lines for hours, but instead we focused on the MCU and Ant-Man and The Wasp.
