Director Peyton Reed announces on Twitter that it’s time get small.
On Twitter today, Peyton Reed, the director of the upcoming Ant-Man film, which has been through some tough times since Marvel has tried to make it, had this to say.
Alright, gang. Today is the day. LET’S. GET. small. #AntMan

Fans can finally rejoice because Ant-Man is actually underway! While there have been doubters of whether or not Ant-Man would work as a film, most of the skepticism has gone away after seeing Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy do exceptionally well, for a movie about a group of space-misfits and a talking tree based off of second-tier Marvel characters.
Ant-Man will star Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, Evangeline Lily as Hope Van Dyne, and The Strain’s Corey Stoll as Darren Cross/Yellowjacket. What do you guys think about this upcoming film and its characters?
Ant-Man is schedules to hit theaters on July 17th, 2015.
Though Thanos only appears in a couple of scenes in Guardians of the Galaxy, his presence is ongoing throughout the entire film. Josh Brolin voices the character for the first time in the latest Marvel flick, and the actor seems to be very excited about portraying The Mad Titan. While promoting his film Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, Brolin talked extensively about his character Thanos, his relationship with Death, and more.
Brolin talked about how he had been offered roles in superhero films but always turned them down, until this opportunity came about. According to him, it was the guys making the movie (behind-the-scenes) who convinced him to take on the role.
“First and foremost, I have a really good friend who I’ve known for years who’s the co-president of Marvel, Louis D’Esposito. I knew Louis as a first AD, and he’s the one who initially called me, and then [producer] Jeremy Latcham. Then I talked to Kevin Feige, ultimately. But there’s something about them that’s so insular and so geeky and so real. I loved it — because I’ve turned down a lot of those types of movies. Not Marvel, but I’ve turned down a lot of those types of movies. When they started telling me the story about them getting together in Palm Springs, nine of them flipping burgers and talking about what Thanos was going to do and going, ‘What do you think?’ like, ‘Captain America’s going to show up here!’ Then, ‘Oh my God, what if the Hulk came in at that point?’ and all that — I love that sh**. I love it, because those guys are absolutely saturated with that world, and they love story. Another thing that I really loved is, they said that they didn’t use directors that did music videos and all that in the past. They would always look for people who had done stories. If you look at James Gunn’s oeuvre, he’s done even web series, but they’re all stories.”
He added that he didn’t only accept Thanos because “Marvel’s hot right now,” but because he saw himself as this “thing.”
“…Not that I’m ever 100-percent sure, but we had constructed this small thing, Kevin Feige and I and Robert, and going on-stage at Comic-Con. Then it became something else. Once I got on-stage, it sort of became its own improv. I knew at that point, because I saw the rivalry between Robert [Downey Jr.] and I, and I thought, ‘I get this. I suddenly really get it.’ So I feel like I’m more inside it than I was. It was more a display to me before that. It was more cosmetic. Now I think I’m starting to get who the guy is a little bit.”
Brolin also talked about Thanos’ relationship with Death and related it to his character in Sin City.
“His relationship with Death, who is actually the woman, I love that. You can take Sin City [in which Brolin plays a man obsessed with a dark-hearted woman] and pump it full of steroids, and then you have Thanos. I like that he’s motivated by that — not just motivated by destruction or death or this or that. He’s motivated by a very identifiable, human trait.”
Guardians is now in theaters and if for some strange reason you haven’t seen it, I suggest you run to the theaters right now. It’s fantastic.

The Oscar-winning actor joins the cast of Marvel’s Ant-Man, in theaters July 31, 2015!
Michael Douglas has stepped into some of the biggest–or should that be tiniest?–shoes of his career.
The two-time Academy Award-winning actor will join director Edgar Wright and Paul Rudd in Marvel’s "Ant-Man," hitting theaters July 31, 2015.
"With Hank Pym’s rich history in the Marvel Universe, we knew we needed an actor capable of bringing the weight and stature to the role that the character deserves," said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. "We felt incredibly relieved when Michael Douglas agreed to step into the part with the charm and fortitude he brings to every character he inhabits, and couldn’t be more excited to see what he will do to bring Hank Pym to life."
The legendary actor, who earned an Academy Award in the category of Best Actor in a Leading Role for his iconic portrayal of Gordon Gecko in "Wall Street," has also starred in numerous modern classics including "Basic Instinct," "Fatal Attraction," "The Game," "Wonder Boys," "Traffic" and many more. In addition to acting, Douglas has also served as Producer and Executive Producer on a number of films including "Romancing the Stone," John Carpenter’s "Starman" and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest," for which he also won an Academy Award for Best Picture. Most recently, Douglas earned a Golden Globe and his first Primetime Emmy Award for his role as legendary entertainer Liberace in the HBO original film "Behind the Candelabra."
Douglas will star as Hank Pym, who first appeared in TALES TO ASTONISH #27 (Jan. 1962), with Rudd starring as Scott Lang in the film.
