Production Officially Begins On ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’

Marvel’s official Twitter feed just confirmed that production has begun on ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’, and marked the occasion with a brilliant video which shows where Ant-Man and The Wasp will spend their down-time between takes.

Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly are both returning for their respective roles, but this time Lilly’s Hope van Dyne will don her mother’s Wasp costume, as teased at the end of the first film. It was also recently confirmed that Michelle Pfeiffer has been cast as the original Wasp, Janet van Dyne, mother of Hope and wife of Hank (Michael Douglas).

Also recently confirmed as members of the cast include Walton Goggins, Laurence Fishburne, and Randall Park, who has been confirmed to play S.H.I.E.L.D Agent Jimmy Woo. Michael Pena, T.I and David Dastmalchian are all returning for the sequel.

We also have an updated synopsis for the film, which is as follows: 

“From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink: “Ant-Man and The Wasp.” In the aftermath of “Captain America: Civil War,” Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.”

Director Peyton Reed has also just released a better look at the new logo for the film.

‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’ opens in cinemas July 6th 2018

Jason Starr: Writing for Both Sides

Interview by Chris Gelderd

Whilst our primary focus here at JumpCut UK is the world of film, it’s hard to deny the fact that we are all massive comic book nerds, too. So when we got the chance to speak to Jason Starr – a writer who has worked with both DC and Marvel Comics – we simply exploded with excitement. As well as crafting stories for iconic characters such as Batman, Wolverine and Ant-Man, Jason is also a best-selling, award-winning novelist, and has worked closely with the hit FOX show ‘Gotham’.

Captain America: Civil War Trailer Shows Off New Spider-Man

Social media was sent into meltdown last week when this new ‘Captain America: Civil War’ trailer dropped. The reason? Well, this trailer gives us our first look at the new Spider-Man and his appearance has proved to be very divisive indeed.

One thing’s for sure, this trailer has got us even more pumped for Marvel’s latest Avengers reunion. See if you can spot all the comic book influences too, they’re pretty cool! 

What do you think about Spider-Man’s new suit? Are you excited for ‘Captain America: Civil War’? Most importantly, are you Team Cap or Team Iron-Man? Let us know your thoughts and pledge your allegiance.

Captain America: Civil War hits cinemas in the UK April 29th 2016

Watch This Space: July 13 – 19

Welcome to your weekly go-to-guide – WatchThisSpace – where we give you recommendations of films to watch in the cinema, on the television and those brilliant films hiding at the back of your DVD collection.

IN THE CINEMA

It’s been nearly three months since Marvel last graced the silver screen, so it’s about time they brought us something new. ‘Ant-Man’ promises to bring a unique and fresh edge to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and should entertain cinemagoers of all ages.

I saw the trailer for ‘Self/Less’ recently and I have to say that, despite a reasonably strong cast of Ryan Reynolds and Ben Kingsley, it looks like a flop. And judging from various reviews dotted around the web, that hypothesis seems to be correct. Feel free to take the risk though.

ON TELEVISION

Monday 21:00 GMT: Splitting the polls, ‘Bad Teacher’ is a relatively crude, adult and comedic film. Cameron Diaz stars as the detestable, yet hilarious educator on Film4.

Thursday 21:00 GMT: This year’s ‘Furious 7’ was an absolute monster hit at the box-office. See where all the action began with ‘The Fast & The Furious’ on ITV2.

Friday 22:45 GMT: Surely we don’t need to tell you how great ‘Gladiator’ is. Winning 5 Academy Awards and finding itself in the IMDb top 50 films of all time, this is a must-see on ITV1.

Saturday 21:00 GMT: Way back in 2000, Ben Stiller graced our screens in ‘Meet The Parents’. Still as awkward and funny as ever, you can find it on BBC3.

Sunday 20:00 GMT: A family-fave due to its obvious youngster appeal and added wit, sarcasm and emotional reach for the adults, ‘Shrek’ is deservedly the winner of the first Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. Catch the loveable ogre on BBC3.

DIG IT OUT

This is our favourite part of the WatchThisSpace section. We delve into our own DVD collection and pick out some amazing films, that may not instantly spring to mind when you’re stuck for inspiration to make your movie night a success. Maybe you’ve never seen a film that we pick – or even heard of them for that matter – but you’re gonna have to trust us on this one, and Dig It Out.

Batman: Our news feed was absolutely dominated by San Diego Comic Con last week, most notably the emergence of a trailer for ‘Batman v Superman’, which we LOVE by the way!! The signs suggest that Batfleck might just be a success after all, but until March 2016 we have to make do with the caped crusaders of the past. Tim Burton’s 1989 classic should calm your impatience for a while.

American Psycho: Almost as exciting as the footage of Bats and Supes, was the ‘leaked’ trailer for ‘Suicide Squad’. The man everyone wanted to see – Jared Leto’s Joker of course. He may only play a bit part in ‘American Psycho’, but we don’t need much of an excuse to advocate this gruesome great of modern cinema. Plus, Christian Bale is Batman too, so there’s another link if you weren’t already satisfied.

Grease: This week, the people of Greece united and stood their ground against a harsh and unfair austerity plan, a slap in the face for greed worldwide. Tedious, but phonetically correct, our link comes in the form of 1978 classic musical, ‘Grease’. Both John Travolta and Olivia Newton John will forever be known for their roles as high school lovebirds Danny and Sandy. Complete with “gang” rivalry (gang being used in the loosest sense of the word), adult-scale drama and musical hits a-plenty, it’s a must-see if you haven’t already.

Catch Me If You Can: Based on a real life wonder, this biographical crime drama depicts the fascinating and surreal life of fraudster Frank Abagnale Jr. JumpCut favourite Leonardo DiCaprio leads, successfully demonstrating Abagnale’s tenacity and charm when battling with the law, in the form of Tom Hanks as Carl Hanratty. Working as a doctor, lawyer and co-pilot before his 18th birthday, Abagnale’s journey is a riveting one.
