Believe it or not, somewhere one Earth Marvel’s Ant man is somebody’s favorite Avenger. With Avenger mania sweeping the planet (and draining wallets everywhere) Marvel Studios is fully aware that Ant Man has the potential to be HUGE (see what I did there). Scott Pilgrim director Edgar Wright will soon be bringing us the misadventures of Hank Pym, also known as the Ant Man. Considering Mr. Wright has consitantly given us cinematic gold, we have high hopes for the Ant Man franchise. Now, last we heard there is no solid plan to bring Edgar Wright’s Ant Man into the current Avengers film universe, but if we whine enough we may get our way. More importantly however are the following questions. Who exactly is the Ant Man? And, who is the perfect actor to portray the super genius Hank Pym?
A long time ago James Gunn tried his hand at writing a super hero movie and we got The Specials. While most people never saw The Specials, it proudly sits on my DVD shelf as shining example of what was almost something awesome. James Gunn later went on to make the incredibly enjoyable Slither starring Nathan Fillion and Elizabeth Banks. Slither was a classic, and Fillion was an incredible lead (as always). I must admit that I still quote “somethingssss wrong with meeeee” when I have too much to eat and look a bit plump.
Here is the official trailer for Super, starring: Rainn Wilson, Ellen Page, Liv Tyler, Kevin Bacon, and Nathan Fillion. What happens when misshapen nerd (Wilson) loses his Elven princess (Tyler) of a wife? He gets a sidekick, throws on a costume, and goes on what appears to be a murder spree.
