You don’t have to look any further than my right arm to know that I’m a huge fan of Guardians of the Galaxy. I’ve been a fan of the comic books since I was a little girl, and I was skeptical about how it would be adapted for theaters. I was thrilled to see the version that James Gunn brought to the big screen in 2014. During the filming of the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, I was lucky enough to visit the set and interview Gunn for the first time. I interviewed him again during Vol. 2’s press junket. During each encounter, I was impressed by his vision, his talent, and his kindness.
Ant-Man and The Wasp Director Peyton Reed Dishes on the Future of the MCU & More! | #AntManAndTheWaspEvent
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.

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!
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!
