The New Ant-Man Trailer Goes Heavy on the Kang

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is only about a month away from arriving in theaters and I’m very excited! Ant-Man is my favorite Avenger and I’ve enjoyed his films. And the next one is gonna be big and bombastic! It’s also gonna introduce a proper Kang the Conqueror as the new big bad.

And the new trailer, debuting last night, really goes heavy on Kang action!

Fun trailer! Not as jovial as the first one, but it definitely shows off the action very well. We’ve got lots of Scott Langs, we’ve got some quality drama attached to his daughter, Cassie, and we’ve got a metric ton of danger associated with Kang the Conqueror! Sounds good to me. And yes, those are our first official looks at MODOK! How nifty!

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania comes to theaters on Feb. 17!

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania Looks Cool!

The Marvel movie machine continues to roll along, much to all our enjoyment. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is due out in a couple of weeks, so we’ve got the first trailer for the next movie after that, Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania. I love all of these things, and I love this trailer.

Looks great! We got Ant-Man, we got the Wasp, it definitely looks like Cassie Lang is going to suit up in this one. And Jonathan Majors as Kang is really cool. I look forward to him being a huge menace. If I’m being entirely honest, I’m not yet sold on the Quantum Realm being so identical to the worlds of the Guardians of the Galaxy, but we’ll see how that turn sout.

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania arrives in theaters on Feb. 17, which is closer than you think.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 10/8/22

What a week! What a week! Daredevil shows up in She-Hulk: Attorney at Law! Werewolf By Night debuts for the MCU! New Black Panther: Wakanda Forever trailer! Life is good for us comic book geeks! Made even better by some excellent comics, like Ant-Man and Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Batman #128 because I am a sucker for good Batman and Robin writing, and a sucker for amazing, action-packed comics!

Martian Manhunter gets no respect

Meanwhile, that Daredevil episode was definitely the best episode of She-Hulk yet! And we’ve seen so little from the finale that I have no idea what’s coming next! Should be great! The whole show has been perfect! And I started playing TemTem because I needed something to play, and it’s pretty fun, if low key, so far. I’m also on the hunt for a Playstation 5 ahead of some upcoming games. Wish me luck!

Comic Reviews: Ant-Man #4, Batman #128, Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty #5.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 10/1/22

For once, I have more than just two or so comics to read and review this week! And yet I’m still not branching out as much as I’d like to non-superhero stuff. I haven’t even read 8 Billion Genies yet! That’s supposed to be very good. At least Ant-Man and Thunderbolts are also very good, as is the first issue of Tim Drake: Robin.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #100 for a pretty excellent, perfectly paced and powered, big anniversary issue.

Always a classic

Meanwhile, I’m just about ready to start hunting in earnest for an artist for my next comic book project, Cover Bard. So if you are a comic book artist looking for work or you know one who is, drop me a line and we might be in business!

Comic Reviews: Ant-Man #3, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #100, Thunderbolts #2, Tim Drake: Robin #1 and X-Men #15.

Hench-Sized Comic Book Reviews – 9/3/22

Happy Birthday to me! Not yet, of course. It won’t be until Tuesday — and I’ve got a big announcement to make! — but this is the comics review column ahead of my birthday, so why not say something? Life is fun that way. And comics were fun this week! Including the launch of a new Thunderbolts and another great issue of The Variants.

Comic Book of the Week goes to Ant-Man #2 for how much fun this anniversary series has been, really reaching back into the past and capturing the era-specific magic of guys like Eric O’Grady in his heyday.

My thoughts exactly

Meanwhile, I’m deep into Total War: Warhammer 3 these days, loving the new factions and the giant map. Glad to finally be playing Immortal Empires! I’ve also gotten around to watching Paper Girls on Amazon Prime and it is a real letdown. It feels like an early 2000s Nickelodeon take on the material.

Comic Reviews: Ant-Man #2, Thunderbolts #1 and The Variants #3.
