Heroes Don’t Get Any Bigger In These ‘Ant-Man’ Character Posters

Ant-Man will be blasting into theaters next month and to get us excited, Marvel has teamed up with Entertainment Weekly for the release of a new batch of character posters for the movie. As I understand it, Ant-Man is being treated as the final movie of Phase Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe Movies (Phase One ended with 2012′s The Avengers) so it sounds like the events that take place in the movie will be very important to to close out Phase Two before Phase Three begins with next year’s Captain America: Civil War. I’ll share more on that later, for now, enjoy these fun character posters that feature the film’s stars having a bit of fun with little ol’ Ant-Man.

As I mentioned yesterday when Ryan Gosling shared an open letter in the hopes of raising awareness about animal cruelty AFTER Taylor Swift shared an open letter in the hopes of convincing Apple to reverse course on their policy of paying Apple Music artist royalties, it looks like open letters are having a movement right now. Rapper Nas has released an open letter of his own on the subject of racial inequality here in the US. While Taylor penned her open letter to Apple Inc. specifically and Ryan penned his letter to Costco specifically, Nas penned his letter to America as a whole.

Watch: Here Is The Maya Rudolph Impersonation Of Rachel Dolezal That The World Has Been Waiting For

At Last

It’s a shame that Saturday Night Live season 40 ended back in May because we, the people, have really missed out on the opportunity for SNL to spoof the story of Rachel Dolezal. But, after almost 2 weeks of the Dolezal craziness, we finally get what we’ve been waiting for. Former SNL writer Seth Meyers invited former SNL castmember Maya Rudolph to appear as a guest on his late night talk show and she busted out the Rachel Dolezal impersonation that has been severely lacking in our popular culture. It’s not a SNL skit but this bit will do, watch the embed above and enjoy.
