It is really interesting to see Marvel Comics do a whole lot more now than just comics. After all, traditional print media is slowly but surely dying out, and it is wise to see Marvel take a different approach to expand their revenue stream by diversifying it, through one large gamble – that of movies. While we have seen a slew of blockbusters from various hit franchises such as X-Men, Spiderman, Fantastic Four, The Avengers, Thor, Hulk, and Iron Man among others, how does Ant-Man sound to you?
I will be the first to admit, that the initial Ant-Man trailer did not impress me much, and for a tiny character like that, I do wonder whether it holds the appeal for today’s audiences who might find such an idea childish. Well, taking a look at the new trailer has changed my mind somewhat – I am curious to know how the movie will turn out in the end, although you can be sure that it will be chock full of special effects.
More importantly, how will it fare when it hits the silver screen later this July 22nd in the midst of all the summer blockbusters that are sure to up the ante in terms of special effects and the “wow” factor?
