Ant-Man: 5 Reasons His McU Arc Should End (& 5 Possibilities For Future Stories)

Ever since Ant-Man and the Wasp hit theaters and became a modest box office success, a third movie in the pint-sized superhero’s McU solo franchise has been on the cards. But it’s been a year and a half since that movie came out, and Marvel hasn’t given a release date to a threequel. There are rumors that a third Ant-Man film will begin shooting next year for a possible 2022 release, but as of yet, Marvel hasn’t confirmed anything.

‘Power Rangers’ Reboot in the Works at Paramount with ‘The End of the F***ing World’ Creator
Paramount Pictures is in early negotiations with Jonathan Entwistle, who is best known for his Netflix series “The End of the F***ing World”, to develop a new take on “Power Rangers” for the studio.

The was a popular ’90s TV series involved a group of kids who become superheroes. The show first aired on Fox Kids, then in the 2000s on Disney-owned channels and included a movie in 1995.

Lionsgate produced and released a feature in 2017 that rebooted the title, making it less kid-friendly and giving it a more brooding Ya edge. The hope was that the film would become a fresh new franchise for Lionsgate but when it bombed, grossing only $142 million worldwide on a budget of around $100 million, plans were scrapped for a sequel and the rights were taken back on the market.

“Scorsese wasn’t thinking correctly” says Marvel cinematographer Dante Spinotti

  • ScreenDaily
Oscar-nominated cinematographer also discussed his son’s directorial debut, Now Is Everything.

Oscar-nominated cinematographer Dante Spinotti has hit back at Martin Scorsese’s claim Marvel films are “not cinema” but more like “theme parks”.

“I think probably Scorsese wasn’t thinking correctly when he said what he said,” said Spinotti, who was director of photography on Marvel feature Ant-Man And The Wasp.

“I divide movie-making into two large categories: good movies and bad movies. That’s all there is to it. Why say what’s a movie and isn’t a movie? I don’t see the point.”

Coco Is Leaving Netflix, but It Won't Be Long Before You Can Stream It on Disney+

  • Popsugar
Way back when, Disney had "the vault," where they took movies out of home-video circulation to increase the demand for VHS tapes and DVD/Blu-rays. But now, Disney programming is widely available to stream, especially since Disney+ was introduced on Nov. 12. You can even stream the Pixar movies The Incredibles 2 and Coco from Netflix, but unfortunately, the latter won't be available through the streaming service for much longer. The incredibly charming animated film, which came out in 2017, is about an aspiring young musician named Miguel in rural Mexico who finds himself in the Land of the Dead after his grandmother Mama Coco's passing, where he embarks on a journey to learn about his rich family history. If you want to watch it on Netflix, you'll have to do it fast, because it's leaving on Nov. 29.

Blumhouse's Fantasy Island Movie Poster and Synopsis Promise You're Never Coming Home
We've got some new goods for the upcoming Fantasy Island movie. Blumhouse Productions and Sony Pictures are turning the classic TV series into a big screen affair next year, but with something of a twist. Instead of being a happy, fantasy-fulfilling affair, this is going to have a horror twist. That is teased by both the movie's first synopsis and the newly released plot synopsis.

Starting with the poster, the image itself is gorgeous. We see a lush tropical island covered in greenery and surrounded by crystal blue water. It's the kind of island getaway that so many dream of. There is a small plane heading toward the island and the ominous hashtag, which serves as the movies' tagline, #NeverComingHome. Sony Pictures shared the one-sheet on Twitter with the following caption.

"This island is a scream. Blumhouse's Fantasy Island in theaters Valentine's Day."

Disney Tops Wall Street’s Q4 Estimates On Eve Of Streaming Debut

  • Deadline
Disney delivered a strong batch of financial results for its fourth quarter, with diluted earnings per share of $1.07 beating Wall Street analysts’ consensus forecast of 95 cents.

The results marked an improvement from the previous quarterly report, last August, which were far more mixed and were blamed by management on the integration of 21st Century Fox assets, especially the film studio. Disney’s $71.3 billion deal to acquire most of Fox closed in March.

Total revenue of $19.1 billion in the quarter exceeded the analysts’ estimate for $19.04 billion. That revenue figure rose a robust 34% over the same period a year ago, with the studio division leading the charge thanks to hits like the new take on The Lion King.

Studio revenue surged 52% in the period, and operating income increased by 79% to $1.08 billion. Along with Lion King, money-making titles in the quarter included Toy Story 4 and Aladdin, which compared favorably to the year-earlier

Avengers: Endgame Final Battle Originally Had More Ant-Man And Wasp

The big final battle scene of Avengers: Endgame has to be the most ambitious sequence ever assembled in the McU. Given how many characters are involved and the scope of the fight, it’s not surprising that some material was removed from the finished cut. What is surprising, though, is that one deleted moment from the battle took the form of a comedy/musical beat featuring Ant-Man and the Wasp.

/Film has run a piece that digs deep into how the big battle sequence came together, drawing from interviews with various members of the crew. One of these is editor Jeff Ford, who revealed to the site that there was originally an extra bit of comic relief in which Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) accidentally attract the attention of the Outriders.

“There was also an additional joke where Rudd and Evangeline were in the van,

The Mandela Effect Trailer #2 Threatens to Split the Universe Apart
What is The Mandela Effect? Some believe it is a real-world phenomenon that many can't explain, while others simply call it misremembered facts. But how can so many people remember the same exact thing worng, or that never happened? That's the idea behind the new thriller The Mandela Effect, which explores this so-called conspiracy against the backdrop of a family man who has recently lost his child.

As we can see in this latest trailer for The Mandela Effect, one man's daughter seems trapped between parallel universes. In this reality she has died, but in a different plain of existence, she has survived. Or has she? It's possible that her dad is just going mad, his insanity fueled by the loss of his loved one. Grief can push some people over the edge.

Elizabeth Olsen Trolls Marvel Co-Stars Chris Hemsworth And Paul Rudd

Scarlet Witch fought alongside Thor and Ant-Man in Avengers: Endgame, but Wanda Maximoff actress Elizabeth Olsen has fired some shots in the direction of Marvel co-stars Chris Hemsworth and Paul Rudd in a new Instagram video.

Olsen took to social media to offer a make-up tutorial recently, but couldn’t resist taking aim at a couple of her fellow McU heroes while she was at it. When talking about her “extreme party mascara,” Olsen joked – we think – that she got the technique from Hemsworth, who apparently “also applies all of his mascara off-screen.” She then touched up her cheeks with some blush, that she claimed is more “lightweight” than Rudd. The best part though is that Olsen inserted some clips from the guys’ movies into her tutorial, just to hammer the point home. You can see it for yourself via the link below.

New Ant-Man 3 Theory Teases The Fantastic Four’s McU Debut

Possibly the biggest question amongst fans about the upcoming phase of the McU is how the filmmakers plan to introduce the First Family of Marvel, the Fantastic Four, into the franchise. While traditionally the Four’s origin tale is unrelated to other heroes, given how interconnected the lives of the characters are shown to be in the movies, it could very well be a familiar face who has a hand in their arrival. In fact, one new theory even goes so far as to say that Scott Lang may be responsible for their debut.

The Quantum Realm introduced in Ant-Man and the Wasp is a largely unexplored micro-verse, and a convenient plot device that can be used to hand-wave away the most outrageous parts of the films, from magic to time travel to mutants. It wouldn’t be too much of a stretch then to have the Realm take the

Ant-Man 3 is a Go with Director Peyton Reed

David Crow Nov 1, 2019

Marvel Studios is gearing up for a surprise Ant-Man 3 that could be here as soon as 2022. Peyton Reed is returning as director.

The Avengers’ endgame may have come and gone, but Ant-Man is gearing up for a third act. In what amounts to a surprise announcement for Marvel’s “Phase Four,” Ant-Man 3 is moving quickly through development and already has director Peyton Reed and star Paul Rudd back on board for another mini-adventure.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Reed signed on this week to direct the threequel, which will make him the first director to helm all three installments of a Marvel Studios trilogy. This also reunites him with Rudd, who he previously directed in 2015’s Ant-Man and 2018’s Ant-Man and the Wasp. All other details remain vague, but it is probably a safe bet to expect Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly to reprise their roles as Rudd’s core supporting cast.

The Mandela Effect Trailer Explores Obsession Behind Universe Shifting Phenomenon
What is The Mandela Effect? Some believe the universe has shifted. Others call it the collective misremembering of any given event. Many think it's just a conspiracy theory, and that humans have never held the capacity to remember anything properly in the history of the world. Now, someone has made a movie about this fascinating phenomenon. And today we have the first trailer featuring Gotham star Robin Taylor.

In the Mandela Effect, a man becomes obsessed with facts and events that have been collectively misremembered by thousands of people. Believing the phenomena to be the symptom of something larger, his obsession eventually leads him to question reality itself.

The Mandela Effect is in Theaters and on VOD December 6, 2019. Many who believe in The Mandela Effect are not happy with this movie. And some claim it's a cheap attempt to write the phenomena off as fiction.
