Batman and Robin, Captain America and Bucky, Green Arrow and Speedy–these are just a few of comics’ greatest Dynamic Duos. Each of these pairings have the power, bond, and means to overcome just about any obstacle, but can they maintain a romance simultaneously? That’s where Marvel Comics’ Ant-Man & The Wasp come into place! These pint-sized heroes have finally made their paired debut on the Big Screen with lots of laugh, loves, and even BIGGER action!

When we last saw Scott Lang, aka the second “Ant-Man,” he was in Captain America: Civil War, where he was recruited by Captain America to fight off Iron Man and a few other heroes to save Winter Soldier and stop Baron Zemo. However, Scott was subsequently arrested for his actions and placed on house arrest for two years, alienating himself from Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), the original Ant-Man and his daughter, Hope Van Dyne. Flash forward to present day and Hope has become a superhero herself, operating with her father and utilizing a modified version of her mother, Janet’s (Michelle Phifer), Wasp suit equipped with wings and “stingers” that can fire blasts of electrical energy. Hank may have discovered a means of rescuing Janet from the Quantum Universe just as the latter telepathically reaches out to Scott. Hope and Hank reluctantly enlist Scott’s help in saving her, but a mysterious villain with quantum powers of her own, Ghost, wants their technology for herself. Scott and Hope will have to team up as Ant-Man and Wasp to not only save Janet, but keep Hank’s shrinking technology out of the government and organized crimes’ clutches!

We have to say this film was pretty good. The story line and plot prove that Marvel can still do some pretty awesome smaller movies after Avengers: Infinity War–which, without spoiling anything, will play a part in this film. However, the real star of the film is Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp! She not only proved herself to be a superior fighter, hero, and partner, but kept us on our toes. She could definitely go toe to toe with Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow! Paul Rudd is definitely the funny man in the film as Scott/Ant-Man, and we definitely love the humor, but we would really have liked to see his character cut loose a little more.

Marvel definitely is working on how it deals with its villains. Alas, we have another villain we can sympathize with in “Ghost” (Hannah John-Kamen). Making the character female and placing her fighting skills on par with Wasp’s gave us the rivalry we live for. Also, those phasing powers were pretty amazing–Shadowcat or Phantom Girl much? Bill Foster’s (Lawrence Fishburne) appearance was also amazing. In the comics he is Goliath, with a power set similar to Giant-Man’s, is one of Marvel’s first Black superheroes.

All in all, we are definitely hoping for another Ant-Man and Wasp film IF the ramifications of another Marvel event are rectified. Were you marked safe during Infinity War?

Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child at the Overlook, Dan Torrance has fought to find some semblance of peace.  But that peace is shattered when he encounters Abra, a courageous teenager with her own powerful extrasensory gift, known as the “shine.”  Instinctively recognizing that Dan shares her power, Abra has sought him out, desperate for his help against the merciless Rose the Hat and her followers, The True Knot, who feed off the shine of innocents in their quest for immortality.

Forming an unlikely alliance, Dan and Abra engage in a brutal life-or-death battle with Rose.  Abra’s innocence and fearless embrace of her shine compel Dan to call upon his own powers as never before—at once facing his fears and reawakening the ghosts of the past.

“Doctor Sleep” stars Ewan McGregor (“Star Wars: Episodes I, II & III,” “T2 Trainspotting”) as Dan Torrance, Rebecca Ferguson (the “Mission: Impossible” films, “The Greatest Showman”) as Rose the Hat, and Kyliegh Curran, in her major feature film debut, as Abra.  The main ensemble cast also includes Carl Lumbly, Zahn McClarnon, Emily Alyn Lind, Bruce Greenwood, Jocelin Donahue, Alex Essoe and Cliff Curtis.

Trevor Macy and Jon Berg produced the film, with Roy Lee, Scott Lumpkin, Akiva Goldsman and Kevin McCormick serving as executive producers.

Flanagan’s behind-the-scene creative team was led by director of photography Michael Fimognari (“The Haunting of Hill House”), production designers Maher Ahmad (“Get Hard”) and Elizabeth Boller (“Hush”), and costume designer Terry Anderson (“Den of Thieves”).  The music score is composed by The Newton Brothers (“The Haunting of Hill House”).

We have to say this movie sounds riveting! Anything from Stephen King is definitely going to be a hit!

“The message is loud and clear,” Jeff Fowler tweeted Thursday. “You aren’t happy with the design & you want changes. It’s going to happen. Everyone at Paramount & Sega are fully committed to making this character the BEST he can be.”

Fowler, a visual effects artist who’s making his directorial debut with the “Sonic” film, included the hashtag #gottafixfast.

Social media users complained about the CGI look of the titular hero, with the character’s human-style teeth drawing the most flak. Video game blog Kotaku compiled some of the most entertaining reactions.

Fowler did not specify what changes are in store for the film, which is scheduled to hit theaters on November 8.

We have to say Sonic’s appearance in the film is lackluster to say the least, we are looking forward to seeing what changes–and we hope they are sweeping–are made! What do you guys think about Sonic and his first movie trailer? Leave your thoughts in the comments’ section below!
