The countdown to Marvel’s next summer tentpole has begun. In case you’ve been hiding out in a cave and have somehow missed the avalanche of trailers, TV spots, clips, posters and stills then know this: Avengers: Age Of Ultron is mere weeks away from being unleashed into theaters across the planet. The sequel to 2012’s billion-dollar superhero outing is expected to blow away all previous box office records, and firmly cement Marvel into the history books. After that, it’s all eyes on the next phase in their juggernaut series and according to JoBlo, there’s still plenty of surprises in store.
While it goes without saying, we’ll go ahead and issue a spoiler alert right now. If you don’t want to know anything whatsoever about Ant-Man, Captain America: Civil War or Doctor Strange, then click away now.
Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Still here? Excellent… Next in Marvel’s docket is Ant-Man, which dropped a new trailer this week ahead of its theatrical release later this summer. Early verdicts on the two teasers have been positive, and according to this scoop, a few key shots from the last one hint at an even bigger brawl. In actual fact, there’s allegedly TWO major scuffles set to explode onscreen between Scott Lang and the villainous Yellowjacket.
Here are the details:
One [that] takes place in a briefcase as it falls out of a helicopter where they’re literally fighting around objects in the case; Lifesavers, keys, an iPhone, etc. and using said objects against one another. The final battle between both characters takes place in Scott Lang’s daughters’ room on the Thomas the Train set (as seen in the recent trailer). As the battle rages on, we’ll see both characters enlarge certain objects while they’re still shrunk, accidentally making a giant ant and, eventually, Thomas the Train, which crashes out of the bedroom, crushing a car on the street.
Making use of the diminutive stature of its warriors, this type of small-scale fighting sounds like it will translate perfectly to the big screen. And who knows, maybe their success will incite further adventures for the hero? Speaking of future jaunts, it’s also inferred that Evangeline Lilly, who plays Hope Van Dyne in the movie, WILL become The Wasp, but not in Ant-Man.
