Ant-Man and the Wasp
In the world of Ant-Man, things are about to get BIG. A brand new trailer for this summer’s Ant-Man and the Wasp is here! Coming in hot of the heels of Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp is offering a lighter, yet still action-packed, film. The movie is set before Infinity War, and features the title characters tracking down Ghost (played by Hannah John-Kamen). Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly return as Scott Lang and Hope van Dyne. Check out the trailer, and get ready! Ant-Man and the Wasp rolls into theaters July 6.
A new Robin Hood film is on the way! The first trailer for director Otto Bathurst’s Robin Hood is here! The film features Taron Egerton (Kingsman), Jamie Foxx as Little John, Jamie Dornan as Will Scarlet, and Ben Mendelsohn as the Sherrif of Notthingham. In the trailer Robin Hood is in the Crusades inciting rebellion, and tracking a masked evil-doer. It looks pretty interesting, with plenty of intrigue and arrow shooting action. And, of course, robbing the rich to give to the poor. Robin Hood hits theaters November 21.
A new comic book adaptation is in the works at Netflix! Netflix obtained the rights to Vault Comics scifi thiller Failsafe. The comic was created by F.J. Desanto, Federico Dallochio, and Todd Farmer.

Jordan (Black Panther) is set to help produce, and Black Panther co-writer Joe Robert Cole is writing the script. Perhaps Jordan will decided to play the lead? Time will tell.
