The big panel of San Diego Comic-con was, of course, Marvel. Kicking things off, after a long starting delay we had Kevin Feige introducing the Ant-Man team. Hell yeah.
Marvel is always the big panel at Comic-con, every year. This year, things were 20 minutes late in starting. People were chanting "MARVEL. MARVEL. MARVEL." The atmosphere was great in Hall H. The panel eventually began, kicking off with a montage of every MCU film until now. It was neat but the real show starter was Ant-Man.
Up on stage, to chat about the film we had Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Peyton Reed, Evangeline Lilly and Corey Stoll. It was just announced that Lilly will play Hank Pym's daughter, A.K.A The Wasp, and Scott will play Yellowjacket, Ant-Man's villainous foe.
We learned that Darren Cross (Stoll) plays Douglas' right hand man but ends up going down a dark path which ends up with Douglas giving Rudd the suit. The film doesn't begin filming for another 2 weeks but some footage was shown, especially for Comic-con.
The footage opens to Scott Lang and Hank Pym talking. It's raw and dirty - a nice cool look. Then, boom, action. We skip to Lang as a small Ant-Man running, from a tiny sized heist. He notices a flying ant (YES I SAID IT) behind him so he jumps onto it but this proves problematic so he hops off. Behind him, a light shows and we find out that he's being hunted. In a panic to escape, Lang hops over a fence and onto another flying ant (We love writing those words) before black.
The clip is ace. It shows that the film is going to be thrilling! The effects are great and Douglas and Rudd have some funny banter. From what we saw, Rudd brings an intriguing and rather awesome performance to the table as Ant-Man and it's clear that this movie is going to be good. A lot of bad things have happened for this movie in the past, which is ashame, but don't worry. It looks epic.
