Weekend Box Office Wrap-Up: July 19, 2015 Once again, Marvel won the box office this weekend, showing that even their smallest heroes can post big numbers. Coming in #1 this week is Ant-Man (read our review), which made $58 million over its first three days. That may seem like a low figure, especially for Marvel Studios (it’s actually their lowest opening weekend since 2008’s The Incredible Hulk), but things are a lot better than they initially seem. For starters, this is still a strong turnout for a property as obscure as something like Ant-Man.

Ant-Man’s Yellowjacket And The Obvious Solution To Marvel’s Villain Problem Marvel Studios It’s no secret that Marvel has a villain problem. Marvel heroes are charming and endlessly likable. They’ve got Chris Pratt and Robert Downey, Jr. on their team. In another year they’ll have Benedict Cumberbatch. There’s no beating that. Whereas the baddies are short on staying power and quickly forgotten (can you name every MCU villain from memory? I blanked on Abomination for a minute there). With two exceptions to the rule: Loki and Kingpin.

Review: Ant-Man Has A Big Heart And An Even Bigger Punch There is a lot of trepidation about some of the current movies in production right now. The Fantastc Four has been rumored to be a trainwreck but the latest trailers are helping turn that opinion around. The same thing is going on with Batman v Superman as the negatives from Man Of Steel are kept in mind when viewing the Comic-Con footage. But one of the films fans were most cautious about was Ant-Man. Yes, this is a character that help found the Avengers… and the subsequently changed his name to Giant Man shortly after.

Top 12 Marvel Villains We Want to See in ‘Ant-Man 2′ We already know that Marvel’s Ant-Man will follow Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) as he dons Dr. Hank Pym’s (Michael Douglas) suit, which shrinks his size to increase his power. In the film, Earth’s Tiniest Hero must pull-off the ultimate heist, when Pym’s size-altering technology falls into the hands of mad industrialist Darren Cross (Corey Stoll).

BOX OFFICE: ANT-MAN Kicks Off North American Run With Solid $6.4 Million On Thursday Marvel's Ant-Man earned an impressive $6.4 million during late night showings on Thursday, an impressive - if not amazing - start for the finale to Phase 3. Guardians of the Galaxy (which also introduced relatively obscure characters and had a strong comedic tone) took $11.2 million last year and ended up far exceeding expectations. It doesn't seem like Ant-Man will do the same, but The Hollywood Reporter is confident that it's stil going to end the weekend with between $60 million - $65 million.

Check Out ANT-MAN Star Paul Rudd Hilariously Playing His Own Super Fan "Mall Blubb" If Ant-Man is half as fun as Paul Rudd is having promoting the movie, it's going to be one of Marvel's best movies to date! In the video below, Mall Blubb - who claims he isn't actually Paul Rudd - makes it clear that he wants Seth Meyers to bring out the actor with lines like, "Hell no, dude. I wish I was Paul Rudd, with his handsome face and his huge elephant pee-pee. I'm talking thick!" Check it out below and stay tuned for more on Ant-Man.

Well you clicked, so here goes! The last after credits scene from Ant-Man is an obvious Civil War tie-in featuring Captain America (Chris Evans) and the Falcon (Anthony Mackie) finally tracking down the Winter Soldier (Sebastian Stan), who looks to be in a pretty bad way. It's not made clear exactly where they are or what they're planning, but after a brief exchange between the heroes Falcon mentions that he "knows a guy" that they can call on for help.
