It took seven episodes, but Cloak & Dagger, the superhero show airing on FOX8 in Australia, finally referenced the larger Marvel universe.

Walt Disney has announced that it has severed ties with James Gunn, removing him from production of the third Guardians of the Galaxy film, in the wake of multiple old tweets from the director joking about rape and paedophilia.
The end credits scenes in Ant-Man and the Wasp are deliberately meant to leave you asking questions — questions that won’t be answered until next winter’s Avengers 4 at the earliest. But the film’s director, Peyton Reed, was able to explain to us a few things about the scenes, including how the scenes came about and why they are what they are.
Most superheroes come prepackaged. Comic book history has long dictated their origins, powers and adversaries, and most superhero movies simply follow suit.
A rare exception comes in the form of Ant-Man and the Wasp’s villain. The character’s origins are muddy and their powers are rather malleable. So director Peyton Reed used those mysteries to craft a mostly new villain perfectly suited to his film.
In a few weeks’ time, the internet is going to suddenly be full of a whole lot more gifs of some of those epic fights from Avengers: Infinity War, because you’ll finally be able to watch it on Blu-ray or digital in the comfort of your own home. As always, it’s gonna be packed with extras.
As expected, Indiana Jones 5 has now officially been moved to a 2021 release date. But that’s just one of several premiere shifts Disney announced today, which include a Marvel movie and live-action adaptations.
Ant-Man and the Wasp is a decent movie. It has great action, funny quips, and a giant Hello Kitty Pez dispenser that knocks a guy off his motorcycle.
Unfortunately, I left the theatre disappointed. The movie focused so much on physical feats, both gargantuan and microscopic, that it forgot all about a very specific emotional arc the movie really could have used: A compelling mother-daughter relationship.
Perfect balance has been achieved. The r/ThanosDidNothingWrong subreddit is now better equipped to allocate its precious resources after moderators randomly banned half of its members. Was I among those culled? Well, all I can say is: I don’t feel so good right now, Mr Stark.
Ant-Man and the Wasp is a madcap adventure of a movie about Scott Lang learning to get out of Hope Van Dyne’s way while she takes care of business and saves the day. Unsurprisingly, Evangeline Lilly is one of the major reasons this is an indisputably factual statement.
It’s no surprise that shrinking actors to the size of an ant requires extensive digital fakery, but even the film’s cameo by Thomas the Tank Engine (both the small and large versions) was realised through CG.
Because there must be balance in all things, of course.
Ant-Man and the Wasp was born when director Peyton Reed first saw an early version of Captain America: Civil War.
As audience members, we can see that moment and just kind of enjoy it. But, with a new Ant-Man movie to make, Reed had a completely different thought.
