It was announced today, as many speculated, that Evangeline Lily will become The Wasp in the upcoming sequel to Ant-Man..
Marvel has just dropped a surprising bit of news: the third phase of its cinematic universe is getting even bigger. Not only have three mysterious new movies been added to the schedule, but Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne are teaming up for Ant-Man and The Wasp!
Marvel revealed the news today, slotting in Ant-Man 2, now renamed Ant-Man and The Wasp, for a release date of July 6, 2018. The company touts the title as its first to be named after its starring heroine.
I enjoy Evangeline Lily, so that's great news. Also, since Ant-Man did much better than anticipated at the box office, it looks like we'll be getting even more insect-specific super-heroes on the big screen soon.
Hopefully we'll even get to see Ant-Man's most famous super-hero relative...
I hear that Aunt Bee makes a mean apple pie and, since her son was a sheriff, knows her way around the law.
Don't nobody mess with Aunt Bee.

MTV released new key art for their upcoming Shannara Chronicles series today. If the show is anywhere near as good as the trailer, we're gonna be in for a pretty awesome new adventure series.
Here is a great behind-the-scenes look...

DC Collectibles announced their upcoming Wonder Woman statue of Gal Gadot, from the Batman v Superman movie.
They did a pretty good job with her new look from the film...
Mental Note: Add to Christmas list.
In honor of this, here is a cool remix of the Wonder Woman theme song, with clips from a variety of Wonder Woman projects, including the unaired Wonder Woman TV pilot that starred Adrianna Palicki (from Agents of Shield).

The Martian opens today and, so far, it's been getting pretty good reviews. I can't wait to see it!
In honor of that, here is Matt Damon re-enacting EVERY one of his movie roles this past week on the Late Show with James Corden...
That was kind of awesome.

A new X-Files trailer was released today...
It's starting to come together nicely. Let's hope it holds up to the previous series, without trying too hard to be everything to everybody.
Just be good.
We'll find out more when the six episode event premieres on January 24th.

Very sad news today...
Catherine E. Coulson, who played the Log Lady on David Lynch’s “Twin Peaks” TV series and was set to return to the new Showtime version, died Monday morning of cancer. She was 71.
Coulson, who also worked as a camera assistant, reprised the Log Lady role in the feature “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me” and more recently, she appeared on an episode of “Portlandia” and in the film “Redwood Highway.”
Lynch said in a statement, “Today I lost one of my dearest friends, Catherine Coulson. Catherine was solid gold. She was always there for her friends — she was filled with love for all people — for her family — for her work. She was a tireless worker. She had a great sense of humor — she loved to laugh and make people laugh. She was a spiritual person — a longtime TM meditator. She was the Log Lady.”
It's such a shame that she passed before being able to rejoin the Twin Peaks cast for the new episodes that start filming soon. She was definitely one of the most memorable odd characters on the show.
She will be missed.

Jimmy Kimmel did a live version of his "Celebrities Reading Mean Tweets" last week and, as always, they are VERY entertaining.
I think the guy who made the comment about Jeff Bridges might be on to something.
The past few years, Jeff Bridges really has started to come off as...eccentric.

American Horror Story: Hotel released their official poster today. It looks like there will be some very cool art-deco architecture to look at while all the murdering and mayhem is going on.
So...I find that to be a plus.
The new series premieres on Wednesday October 7th.

The Internets were all abuzz yesterday over a photo of Christina Ricci posing as Morticia Addams from The Addams Family movies in the 90's (where she played the youngest daughter, Wednesday).
Although it turned out to be a crafty photoshopped image, there has certainly been a sudden renewed interest in Christina Ricci possibly playing that role in the future.
Stranger things have happened...
Carrot Top gets my vote to play Cousin Itt.
And speaking of extreme changes....today is the first day of fall.
So, time to pack away the Tube Tops until next year.
