‘Parks and Recreation’s seventh and final season will have a short victory lap in the manner NBC has chosen to burn off its 13 episodes, but our final days in Pawnee will at least be full of familiar faces. Fresh off the ‘Ant-Man’ set, Paul Rudd will reprise his role as Sweetums magnate Bobby Newport, but what brings the character back to ‘Parks and Recreation’'s final year, you ask?

We’re supposedly just a few days away from the debut of the trailer for ‘Ant-Man,’ Marvel’s latest, greatest, and smallest superhero. Current Internet rumors (which are always extremely reliable) claim the first ‘Ant-Man’ teaser will debut just after New Year’s, possibly during the series premiere of Marvel’s ‘Agent Carter,’ but Christmas came early for Ant-Man fans with this early look at the film’s villain. (Okay, yes, technically Christmas came late for Ant-Man fans since Christmas happened four days ago, but you know what I mean.)
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 you meet Bobby Cannavale in person, he’s very friendly, but you quickly get the sense that he doesn’t put up with nonsense. Not that Cannavale doesn’t have a sense of humor—he uses this humor to great effect in the upcoming ‘Annie’ remake; playing a political strategist named Guy who is in charge of William Stacks’ (Jamie Foxx) New York City mayoral campaign; spoiler alert: they meet a little girl named Annie (Quvenzhané Wallis)—it’s more that he doesn’t really like to do the things that actors have to do when they are not acting … like putting up with someone like me while I ask him questions. (For the record: He is correct.)
Although it hit some bumps in the road along the way, Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man’ has officially completed filming—well, director Peyton Reed has officially completed principal photography on the project, and there could always be some additional reshoots ahead. But the bulk of filming on ‘Ant-Man’ is complete, which also brings an end to filming on Marvel’s Phase Two film projects. Let Phase Three begin!
In the many months since director Edgar Wright parted ways with Marvel on 'Ant-Man,' it's been unclear just how much the project would change. With new director Peyton Reed on board and Adam McKay ('Anchorman') brought in to rewrite the script, things are back on track for the film to make its 2015 release date. And thanks to a new interview with McKay, we have a more clear idea about how much has changed between Wright's and Reed's versions of the film -- including how much star Paul Rudd helped shape the script.
'Ant-Man' has only been filming for a few days at this point, but because they're shooting all their exteriors in the middle of downtown San Francisco, we've had no shortage of set pics. So far, we haven't seen anything particularly shocking; mostly Paul Rudd walking around with a backpack. But, it was something in the background of one of those shots of Paul Rudd walking around with a backpack. Is that a Hulk easter egg?
After a tumultuous few months that left many wondering whether it would even happen at all, Marvel's 'Ant-Man' officially began filming yesterday in San Francisco. Not 24 hours later, we have our first look at star Paul Rudd, our newest superhero...
Following the big appearance at Comic-Con 2014, where stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly and Corey Stoll dished on their superhero heist film alongside director Peyton Reed, Marvel's 'Ant-Man' officially announced the start of production and, along with it, its full cast.
Comic-Con 2014 marked the first time 'Ant-Man' star Paul Rudd attended the epic geek extravaganza, and he was pretty darn stoked about the whole experience, considering he's also joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Following the big Marvel panel, the actor faced the press to talk about his experience becoming the size-shrinking superhero, when he goes into production, and the one thing his friends will never let him live down.
