Post by WyldeMan on 12/12/2014, 12:07 pm

The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man. Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.

This movie should never have happened. I'd rather take pretty much any other superhero movie over this.

I was just coming to clarify that, the source who reported it claimed that was for the movie. Assjacks! Thanks Matt.

No problem, seems that's going around a lot of various sites.

What is this a trailer for Ants?!?!?!?!

But on a more serious note, whoever thought this was a cute idea, needs to be bitch slapped til they break. Cause it ain't cute, it makes me hate this movie even more.

Man whenever they say Ant-Man it just sounds like a parody superhero movie. Does look better than I thought but not by much.

That looks terrible, and Michael Douglas has the gravitas of poo. His voice is grating.

This may very well be a dud for Marvel.

That trailer did nothing to sell me at all. The suit even looks like a lame ass red storm trooper. So lemme get this straight, he puts on the suit, pushes a button, shrinks to the size of a ant who then rides on a flying ant through security systems and then he goes big again and runs around in that ridiculous suit? This is pretty much what I'd expected...

Same here. I'm not going to go to watch this in theaters. I usually don't miss superhero movies but for this, I'll make an exception. And this is not the trailer's fault honestly. I just don't like the character. If it was a character I liked, I would have gone to see it but sorry to say that this is a no-go. I'll wait for it on BD.

Not bad. Here is a second trailer:


I gotta hand it to Marvel, they made the character as cool as he can be and it doesn't take itself too seriously from what we've seen so far. That's probably because of Paul, he does a great job in that area but can bring it when he needs too. All things considered, not as bad as I thought it would be. Yellowjacket looks cool too. That ending is hilarious!

It really looks even worse than I'd imagined it would and it's going to make a billion dollars.

So ... I watched this last night.

This was the second last Marvel property I hadn't seen leading into Civil War. (the other is S2 of Agents of Shield, which I'm just starting.)

As a standalone flick it was fun and enjoyable. As a contributor to the MCU, I think I've seen the light Wylde has been trying to shine on us for quite some time. It was paint by the numbers filler.

I re-watched Cap 2: Winter Soldier the other night, and as much as a enjoyed it, I noticed more and more the things they shoehorned in just to get to the next Avengers flick. I'd always told myself the Avengers films were what spawned the individual films, but no. The solo flicks are there just to create a pliable Avengers show.

Marvel on Netflix is their last bastion of hope.

I saw this last week. I thought it was good and funny, I'd put it in the same league as Guardians of the Galaxy. The thing is, I hated the idea of an Ant-Man movie from the moment they announced it and it wasn't until the trailer that I thought it wouldn't suck as I thought it would.

Rudd did a great job as Scott. This is someone I never imagined would fit playing a superhero ever so I was surprised by how well he did. All things considered, I liked it and I think they pulled it off. They made the character Ant-Man likable. And it was great how Hank was already in the game passing the torch to Scott in this, I liked how they transitioned that too.

Nothing beats Netflix/Marvel of course but you can't really compare it. It's 2 hours versus 13 hours worth of story.

I was starting to feel like nobody was paying attention but me, lol. Thank you for paying attention to more than the explosions, a much different experience isn't it?

I did enjoy it, but it was painfully formulaic. As a standalone film it was fun. Rudd was charming, Evangeline is great, Douglas was cool (the opening scene of him CG'd 30 years younger was fucking flawless) ... but for something that's suppose to add to such a large universe, it could have been, it should have been, so much more. I really would have enjoyed seeing Edgar Wright's version.

I think they said most of Edgar's version stayed in the film so I don't think it would have changed much. As for adding something, I had no such expectations. lol! Which is why Falcon's appearance surprised me.
