ANT-MAN

Yes, friends, someone has finally captured the Comic-Con International "Ant-Man" test footage on film. This footage was previously shown at CCI 2012, but Marvel showed it again at a screening in London and someone managed to grab the video on a cellular phone.

DEADPOOL

While speaking with HeyUGuys about his role in the animated film "The Croods," Ryan Reynolds gave a very brief update on the status of the "Deadpool" standalone film.

"I don't know. It's up to the studio and the studio is really reluctant to pull the trigger on such a hard, rated-R script. The guys that wrote it and the producers, they don't want to make it unless it's that hard and that raunchy."

STAR WARS

Harrison Ford spoke very briefly to WGN TV while promoting his new film "42" about the possibility of his return to the "Star Wars" franchise.

"I'm looking forward to it," Ford told WGN. "It's not in the bag yet, but I think it's happening."
