Interview: Michael Douglas Couldn’t Wait To See Evangeline As The Wasp & More | #AntManAndTheWaspEvent

When we got our interview list of the Ant-Man and The Wasp press event, I was over the moon to see Michael Douglas on it. I love him as an actor anyways, but his performance as Hank Pym in the first Ant-Man was phenomenal. In the comics, Hank is one of my favorite heroes. Especially when he is dating Tigra but that is a whole other story that I don’t think we will ever see in the MCU. Then when I saw him in Ant-Man and The Wasp, well, he blew me away. Michael was all I could have expected and more in the interview room as well. Humble, super nice, and a genuine joy to talk with.

Laurence Fishburne Is A Comic Book Nerd & Would Have Played A Piece of Debris in Ant-Man and The Wasp | #AntManAndTheWaspEvent

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.

Ant-Man and The Wasp Mid-Credit Scene Cast & Director Reactions! | #AntManAndTheWasp #AntManAndTheWaspEvent

No spoilers ahead! Come back after opening weekend for this article – spoiler style! The mid-credit scene in Ant-Man and The Wasp destroyed me. I was just going about life, having a great time after watching one of the funniest Marvel movies, and then Marvel did what they do best, they messed me up. They got me thinking. And they stunned me. Completely stunned me. I won’t get in to the details now, but I will have them all for you after opening weekend. While interviewing the cast and Director during #AntManAndTheWaspEvent, we had to ask about THAT Ant-Man and the Wasp mid-credit scene – and they all had some great comments!

Evangeline Lilly Is All About Girl Power & Talks About Finding Her Light | #AntManAndTheWaspEvent #AntManAndTheWasp

If you know anything about me, you know I am a total geek. When I found out that I would be interviewing Evangeline Lilly about Ant-Man and The Wasp I was thrilled. She was in some of my favorite geek culture media like Lost and The Hobbit and I have loved seeing her in action as The Wasp (seriously guys, she is so badass…). The second she walked in to the room, I knew this was going to be a great interview. She said “Oh my God. Women! I love it!”. She is all about girl power and women empowerment and I love her for it!

Enter to Win A GIANT-SIZED Ant-Man and The Wasp Prize Pack! | #AntManAndTheWaspEvent #AntManAndTheWasp

Marvel fans like me have been waiting for the release of Ant-Man and The Wasp for years. The first Ant-Man was filled with fun, laughter, and of course, action. Going in to it, I admit, I was more of a Hank Pym as Ant-Man fan than a Scott Lang as Ant-Man fan so I was nervous of how it would be. I should have known that anything with Paul Rudd in it would be movie gold. Next week the sequel finally hits theaters and to help celebrate, The Hopping Bloggers have come together to bring our readers a prize pack worth over $85!

Paul Rudd Discusses Family, Friends, & Humor in this Ant-Man and The Wasp Interview | #AntManAndTheWaspEvent #AntManAndTheWasp

If you ask me, Paul Rudd is one of the funniest human beings on the face of the Earth. From the first moment I saw him in Clueless, I fell for him. I love a guy with humor, and he has it. Because I thought of him as such a comedian, it was hard for me to place him as Scott Lang when I first heard he would play him. I thought to myself this is going to either be really bad or really good – well Ant-Man is one of my top favorite Marvel movies, so I would say it was a success. Paul Rudd is the perfect Scott Lang, and so I was really excited to see him reprise the role in Ant-Man and The Wasp – and he did so perfectly (as a sidekick to The Wasp if you ask me). While in LA for the #AntManAndTheWaspEvent, I got to sit down with Paul Rudd and talk all about his role as Ant-Man. We all clapped when he walked in and he joined right in with us! It was a great start to one of my favorite interviews ever!

What Does the Future of Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger Hold? Interview with Cast & Crew! | #CloakAndDaggerEvent #CloakAndDagger

Marvel’s Cloak and Dagger hooked me from the very first few minutes. Admittedly, I am not a giant fan of the comic book characters but I love Freeform shows so I wanted to give this one a chance. Boy am I glad I did. Each episode gets better and better – literally. Just when I think there is no possible way that they can top an episode, they do. And they are the master of leaving us with a cliffhanger and making us wait a week to find out what is going to happen. While in LA for the Ant-Man and The Wasp event, I got an advanced screening of episode five. No shocker when I say it was the best one yet. After it ended, in walked the creator/showrunner Joe Poleski, Andrea Roth (Melissa Bowen), Miles Mussenden (Otis Johnson), and the Vice President of Original Programming at MARVEL TV, Tom Lieber. We chatted with them about how the show came about and what we might see in the future.

Ant-Man And The Wasp Brings Girl Power, Laughter, & Kick Ass Action | #AntManAndTheWasp #AntManAndTheWaspEvent

If I was forced to sit down and rank the Marvel Cinematic Universe movies from my favorite to least favorite, Ant-Man and The Wasp would be in my top 5. Easy. I would never have expected that before seeing this movie because my top 5 are pretty solid. Or so I thought. This movie brings fun and humor, but also a badass female superhero who kicks some serious butt. Not to mention the female antagonist (girl power am I right ladies?). Ant-Man and The Wasp brings it to the big screen guys. Avengers: Infinity War is a hard act to follow, but this movie did it perfectly. Filled with humor and fun that doesn’t take away from the plot – Ant-Man and The Wasp is a must see family film. There, I said it.
