Marvel follows ‘ant-sized’ teaser for Ant-Man trailer with human-sized preview

Late last week, Marvel Studios released a miniature, “ant-sized” teaser for the Ant-Man trailer set to debut during the January 6 premiere of the Agent Carter television series. Naturally, the miniature preview inspired quite a few squinted eyes and blurry magnifications of the first footage from the film, so the studio was kind enough to release a standard, human-sized version of the 18-second sequence the following day.

Set to star Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas, Ant-Man casts Rudd as former thief Scott Lang, who must find his inner hero when scientist Hank Pym (Douglas) recruits him to help save the world from villains intending to use Pym’s size-changing technology for diabolical purposes. The first full trailer for Ant-Man will debut during the Tuesday, January 6, premiere of Marvel’s much-anticipated new television series, Agent Carter, at 8 PM ET on ABC.

Also starring Judy Greer (Archer), Bobby Cannavale (Chef), Michael Pena (End of Watch), Martin Donovan (Inherent Vice), Wood Harris (Dredd), and John Slattery (Iron Man 2), Ant-Man concludes “Phase Two” of Marvel’s cinematic universe. The film hits theaters July 17, 2015.

Which multiverse is better: Marvel or DC?
Three Spider-Men point at each other in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.

With The Flash finally in theaters and Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse still dominating multiplexes nationwide, it's safe to claim that we're in an era of multiverses. Everything from high-quality animated entertainment to Oscar heavyweights like Everything Everywhere All at Once now embrace the concept, and that's thanks in no small part to two of the biggest franchises in the world right now. Marvel and DC have both recently taken the plunge into the world of multiversal storytelling, which makes this a perfect time to consider which multiverse is ultimately the more fruitful terrain to explore.

Although the idea of multiverses is quite new to the filmed versions of these stories, the idea of parallel universes has existed in the comics for decades. Over those years, both universes have had their share of cataclysmic multiverse events, but only one universe can ultimately reign supreme over this particular corner of comic book lore. With all that in mind, let's dive in and figure out which multiverse is actually better and why.

Disney shifts release dates for Marvel movies, Star Wars films, and Avatar sequels

The writers' strike has lasted about one-and-a-half months so far, and it doesn't appear to be ending anytime soon. And now, Disney is making some major schedule changes to almost all of its upcoming franchise films. Avatar fans are going to feel it the most. Avatar 3 has been pushed back a year from December 2024 to December 19, 2025. The other sequels, Avatar 4 and Avatar 5, have been delayed to December 21, 2029, and December 19, 2031, respectively. That's a three-year delay for both titles from their previous release dates.

Marvel's 2024 slate is also getting a big shake-up, with Captain America: Brave New World moving away from its summer opening slot on May 3, 2024, to July 26, 2024. The Thunderbolts movie is shifting from July 26, 2024, to December 20, 2024, the former release date for Avatar 3. That will make it only the second MCU movie to be released in December after Spider-Man: No Way Home.

7 best Spider-Man characters who’ve never been on the big screen
Black Cat sits on a chair in a Marvel comic book.

Since making his debut in 1962, Stan Lee and Steve Ditko’s Spider-Man has remained one of the world’s most popular and prolific superheroes, with the character often featured in multiple monthly comic titles and animated series at the same time. Maintaining that kind of cultural footprint is only possible with the help of an absolutely massive supporting cast of friends, allies, and enemies.
It’s a testament to the depth of Team Spider-Man’s bench that there have been 10 feature films starring the character and there are still a few major names who are waiting to make their big-screen debut. Whether they’re too new to have been included in the earliest Spider-Man movies or too important to be lumped in with a dozen other characters in a crossover film, each of these seven Spidey stalwarts is bound to get their day in the spotlight, some sooner than others.
