Who Should Play the Ant-Whispering Founding Avenger?
Comic book movie fans were treated to some great news yesterday, courtesy of Walt Disney Studios. In addition to announcing that Iron Man 3 and Thor: The Dark World will be released in 3D, Marvel Studios' parent company finally put co-writer (with Joe Cornish) and director Edgar Wright's (Scott Pilgrim vs. The World) Ant-Man adaptation on its slate of upcoming superhero movies, revealing the movie will be released on November 6, 2015, just six months after The Avengers 2 hits theaters.
Despite being a founding member of The Avengers in the Marvel comic books, Dr. Henry "Hank" Pym, a.k.a. Ant-Man, has yet to make an appearance in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This could be due to Ant-Man's lack of popularity or because Marvel "reserved" the character for Wright, who has been working on his Ant-Man script for years, but the most likely reason is that Wright's Ant-Man won't be scientist-turned-superhero Hank Pym at all, but some other hero, a "bad-ass secret agent" with size-changing powers.

For those hoping for a sequel to last summer's breakout comedy Bridesmaids, the upcoming comedy Friends With Kids might be the best substitute, at least in terms of cast. Written, directed, and starring Kissing Jessica Stein's Jennifer Westfeldt, Friends With Kids includes several Bridesmaids actors, including Kristen Wiig, Maya Rudolph, Chris O'Dowd and Westfeldt's real-life boyfriend, Jon Hamm.
Friends With Kids centers around a group of mostly married friends in their 30's who are at that moment where most are having children. The last two single friends (Westfeldt and Parks and Recreation's Adam Scott) make a decision to have a child together but still date other people (Ed Burns and Megan Fox, respectively). The movie premiered at The Toronto International Film Festival last September to mostly positive reviews, and was quickly picked up by Lionsgate. Set for a March release, the first trailer for the movie is finally online. watch the trailer >> Posted 01.12.12 by Ryan
