ANT-MAN

While speaking with IGN, "Ant-Man" director Edgar Wright gave a brief update on what to expect from the Marvel film.

"It’s a way of doing a superhero film within another genre," Wright told IGN. "I wanted to tell an origin tale in a slightly different way. It’s part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but it also feels like its own piece."

Wright also stated the lengthy development cycle of the film, saying that he wanted to make two movies before "Ant-Man" and has been in contact with Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige during the whole cycle.

THE WALKING DEAD

Access Hollywood spoke with Norman Reedus, who discussed the motivations behind the Daryl/Merle showdown and what to expect from the rest of "The Walking Dead" season three.

Midseason premiere airs February 10 on AMC.

X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST

IGN spoke with Shawn Ashmore about the recent revelation that he would be returning to the role of Iceman in Bryan Singer's "X-Men: Days of Future Past."

"I think the take on the story is really interesting," Ashmore said of the script. "I think that 'Days of Future Past,' as any X-Men fans knows, is a great arc. I love the idea of combining and bringing some cohesion to the two timelines that are happening now. I think that’s exciting. Obviously the 'First Class' cast is incredible, and having Ian Mckellen and Patrick Stewart and Hugh Jackman interact with other cast members is going to be really exciting. Not only is the combination of the cast going to be really cool, but the story itself is going to be really fun."
