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?
Cabin in the Woods has been frozen in carbonite for quite some time, so long actually, that I forgot the film even existed. Originally slated for a theatrical release on 10/29/2009, Cabin was another tragic victim of the MGM financial apocalypse. Good news. Due to a bail out by Lionsgate, Cabin in the Woods will finally get an actual theatrical release! (queue cheers) So what the hell is this movie, and is it going to be any good? After digging around the internet for a bit, here is what we know.
- Written By: Joss Whedon and Drew Goddard (Cloverfield)
- Directed By: Drew Goddard
- Starring: Amy Acker (Angel), Tom Lenk (Buffy), Chris Helmsworth (Thor!), Richard Jenkins, Bradley Whitford.
What’s in the Cabin?
In typical Whedon/Goddard fashion the plot is incredibly “hush hush“. We do know this… Cabin is a horror story, people will more than likely have “witty” conversations, and Amy Acker will probably end up kicking someone’s ass. Ironically, when Chris Helmsworth shot Cabin he was a nobody. Helmsworth was more than likely thinking that Cabin was going to be his breakout film. Shortly after Cabin wrapped he landed his role in Star Trek soon followed by Thor and The Avengers. Needless to say, Cabin in the Woods will benefit from his newfound Thor-power. Cabin in the woods, WILL be out this year... probably…
