ANT-MAN

Edgar Wright discussed the overarching themes of "Ant-Man" with CinemaBlend during an interview for "The World's End" press junket.

"You know what, like because there’s never been a film adaptation of that character, I think it’s OK," Wright told CinemaBlend. "If it was a remake of a film from 30 years ago, then I would be a hypocrite, but because it’s never been made into a movie ever. And also, to be honest, there are elements in that script that actually do continue themes from the other movies, an unlikely hero, a chance at redemption, and so, it’s not something, it’s going to be, it will be different, but I think it will still feel like one of my films."

Opens November 6, 2015

ARROW

Comic Book Movie has posted video coverage of the "Arrow" panel at Fan Expo Canada featuring Stephen Amell.

While there are a number of teases Amell gives about the second season, perhaps the most interesting had to do with the show's approach to superpowers.

"The idea of the first season of our show is that superpowers don't exist," said Amell. "That's not the idea any more. Now, that being said, everything has to base itself in reality -- science. There are leaps to be made, but it's a comic book show on television. We can ground everything as much as possible, but I would expect if Barry Allen's around, he's not going to be slow of foot."

AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.
