SDCC 2014: Ant-Man Gets Some Concept Art

Marvel, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly, have released some concept art for 2015′s Ant-Man. The movie is one of Marvel’s more ambitious movies, with a “B/C” level character, and has had some issues getting going. Peyton Reed is now directing with a script re-write from Adam McKay. Out of all of their projects this is the one I’m most nervous about.

But, lets move past the issues, what do you think of the designs?


BOOM! Teases Snake Plissken

BOOM! Studios clearly has a good relationship with John Carpenter. Carpenter’s movie Big Trouble in Little China is recently launched comic series by him, and it looks like another of his characters will be coming back to the comic page (ironically also portrayed by Kurt Russell, who was in Big Trouble in Little China).

Today, BOOM! teased Snake Plissken, the hero from Escape from New York and Escape from L.A. Who knows if we’ll see an extension of either of those movies, or the comic company mining more of his world.

There have been long time rumors dating back to 2007 of a remake/reboot of the movie series.

A first look at Ultron in Avengers: Age of Ultron

In the lead up to San Diego Comic-Con, Entertainment Weekly has their special issue discussing a lot of what we’ll be buzzing about next week (and the months to come). On the cover though, we’re given a first look at Ultron, as well as Iron Man’s new armor, and a slightly redesigned uniform for Captain America, all appearing in next year’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

In the movie, actor James Spader will be providing motion capture and the voice of the villain Ultron. Ultron’s origin is changed around, as confirmed in this issue. Instead of being created by Hank Pym, who has yet to appear in the Marvel cinematic universe, this version looks like he’ll be created by Tony Stark, as the next version of his automated Iron Man suits. This has been a long time rumor, that’s been confirmed in EW’s issue.

I expect a lot more at this year’s SDCC, it’ll be fun what’s in store, especially if this is what’s been revealed.
