How big a superhero nerd was Corey Stoll growing up? “I was a big comic book fan,” says The Strain star. “Before this big wave of comic book adaptations took over Hollywood, me and my friends sat around casting productions of The X-Men or Avengers. I remember Harvey Keitel was Wolverine.”

On Friday, Marvel released a sneak peek of the first Ant-Man trailer, which will debut during Tuesday night’s premiere of Agent Carter. Except, it was ant-sized. Because that’s Ant-Man’s thing. He shrinks. Get it?
However, in the event that you didn’t want to zoom and enhance the thing to oblivion, Marvel released a human-sized version of the Ant-Man tease today. Watch it below!
It only took three (well, four) words for Vin Diesel to steal the show as Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy, but it’s looking more and more like he’ll have another chance to leave his mark in a Marvel film.
Thanks to a plot synopsis of Ant-Man, another actor’s involvement in the film, as well as the names of a few characters have been revealed.
Of course, in typically cryptic Marvel fashion, the studio has only released the first names of these supporting characters.
Could Al Pacino be ready to take a trip into the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Well, he has been talking about it. On Josh Horowitz’s Happy Sad Confused podcast the professed Guardians of the Galaxy fan confirmed that he met with Marvel Studios’ president Kevin Feige. “I met with a Marvel guy,” Pacino told Horowitz. “It’s a marvel how things happen.” How marvelous!

The best part of Big Hero 6—the awesomely odd exploding-fist sound cuddly robot Baymax makes when bumping knuckles with his pal Hiro—comes as a delightful surprise for audiences…which is fitting, since it was initially received the same way by the guys who actually made the film. “I remember having that feeling of like, ‘That’s really weird and strange, and it’ll never make it into the movie,” says co-writer Robert Baird, who was listening when the voice of Baymax (30 Rock alum Scott Adsit) loosed his first “balalalalalala.”
Of course, there’s more to the story than that. It takes a village to make an animated movie—which is why EW chatted with four separate Big Hero crew members to get the full story behind the fist-bump. Click here for more of Best of 2014 coverage.

On Thursday, Marvel finally confirmed one of its most fervently held rumors: Benedict Cumberbatch, fiancé to Sophie Hunter, husband to Tumblr, and America’s cool British friend, has been cast in the lead role in Dr. Strange.
Unlike another certain popular doctor, Dr. Stephen Strange is an accomplished surgeon who becomes Earth’s Sorcerer Supreme, which mostly means he gets to walk through otherworldly dimensions whilst wearing a really cool cape.
Here’s what Marvel has to say about it:
‘The actor will star in Marvel’s ‘Doctor Strange,’ scheduled to hit theaters November 4, 2016. The film, directed by Scott Derrickson with Jon Spaihts writing the screenplay, will follow the story of neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange who, after a horrific car accident, discovers the hidden world of magic and alternate dimensions.”
There will probably be a lot of memes over the next few days.
Ten years ago this month, Brad Bird’s animated adventure film The Incredibles debuted—and with its winning, funny story about a married pair of washed-up superheroes trying to raise kids and save the world at the same time, it immediately joined the canon of Disney/Pixar insta-classics.
Almost exactly one decade later, Disney released Big Hero 6, another story about a team of animated heroes. It’s not hard to spot connections between the two: They share similar color schemes and aesthetics, for example, and they both feature a titular group of crime-fighters trying to get (or regain) a grip on their abilities while battling a self-styled supervillain out for revenge.
But there’s plenty that separates the two films, besides a decade of animation advancements—and Big Hero 6 may have done well to lift more from its predecessor.
