Director Peyton Reed just wrapped filming on Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’ last week, but there’s still been a question mark hovering around some of the film’s other characters—we know who Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, and Corey Stoll are playing in the film, but what about the rest of that awesome cast? Marvel has officially released the synopsis and some character details for the upcoming film, which will mark the end of the studio’s Phase 2 slate.

When Edgar Wright left Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’, many wondered if the superhero film would ever happen. Peyton Reed was hired to direct from a retooled script by Adam McKay and the film is still on track for its original release date, so everything worked out OK in the ‘Ant-Man’ world but, it almost didn’t work out that way. Star Evangeline Lilly revealed in a recent interview that when she first heard about Wright’s departure, she was “mortified” and almost quit the film.

Taking the same storyboard format as previous key art for the earlier installments, this latest poster chronicles some of the epic moments to come, including a fiery showdown with the dragon Smaug and one blood-spattered battle.

Evangeline Lilly has only been confirmed so far as playing Hope van Dyne in 'Ant-Man', daughter of Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Janet van Dyne. In the comics, Janet is The Wasp, and many have speculated that, like how Hank Pym passes the mantle of Ant-Man to a younger version (Scott Lang, as played by Paul Rudd), Hope would take up the mantle of The Wasp. There's no confirmation yet, but Lilly showed off her 'Ant-Man' look and it certainly looks Wasp-y.

'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' Review

There comes a time when we must stop kidding ourselves. These 'Hobbit' films – with 'The Desolation of Smaug' representing the shank of the trilogy – are not real movies. These are exploitation films for Tolkien nuts, for enthusiasts of the original 'Lord of the Rings' movies and for audiences so hungry for high fantasy they'll gobble up whatever is served to them and ask for seconds.
As someone who has sympathy, but not empathy, for those who have such proclivities, I can get why someone might come away liking this picture. But that is more of an involuntary reaction to exposure to certain elements, not the summation of a film. Listen, there's a grey-bearded wizard who warns in low tones about a place that sounds like “Doggledoor.” And there's someone referred to as “Thorin son of Thrain son of Thror.” I love that geekorama stuff more than most. It's hilarious, and I'll probably refer to my cat as “Thorin son of Thrain son of Thror” for the next week. But this movie doesn't cohere – there's no forward momentum, no character development, no story happening. Anyone who tells you otherwise is a fibber.
