'Ant-Man' Sequel Will Introduce a Major SHIELD Agent

On most Tuesday nights, actor/comedian Randall Park plays Eddie Huang, the fun dad on ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat. But next year, Park will star as the legendary S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Jimmy Woo in Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man and the Wasp. It’s a long shot, but fingers crossed that Disney and Marvel are considering an Agents of Atlas movie somewhere down the line.

On Friday afternoon, The Tracking Board reported that Park has signed on to Marvel’s Ant-Man and the Wasp, a sequel to 2015’s Ant-Man starring Paul Rudd. Both Rudd and co-star Evangeline Lilly will return to star as the titular Ant-Man and, you know, the Wasp. Park will play Jimmy Woo, a stylish secret agent introduced way back in Yellow Claw #1 in 1956, when it was especially rare for a heroic Asian-American character to appear anywhere in pop culture.

In the Marvel Universe, Jimmy Woo has served as the leader of the Agents of Atlas, a special task force within S.H.I.E.L.D. made up of special individuals: Namora, Venus, Marvel Boy, the robot M-11, and Gorilla-Man, a sarcastic mercenary named Ken Hale who had been cursed into being a gorilla. More recently, Jimmy Woo appeared in Greg Pak’s The Totally Awesome Hulk, in which he teamed up with Shang-Chi, Silk, Ms. Marvel, and Amadeus Cho, the new Totally Awesome Hulk to fight against aliens who abducted entire neighborhood blocks of New York City.

'Avengers: Endgame' Theory Suggests Ant-Man Scene Is a Classic Misdirection

There have been three Avengers: Endgame trailers so far, but the first one might have been a complete misdirect. When Ant-Man appears at the door of the Avengers compound, Captain America asks Black Widow if the message is old. Fans have speculated that the two moments aren’t a part of the same scene, and an interesting new theory suggests the message is actually from someone else entirely.

'Apex Legends' Season 1 Battle Pass, Start Date, Challenges, Cost, and More

'Apex Legends' is about to get much bigger.

Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends took the world by storm with its surprise release in February, and the game’s burgeoning community is about to get even bigger when Season 1 launches in March.

Fortnite’s biggest free-to-play battle royale competitor will soon have a nearly identical seasonal structure that includes a premium battle pass available for purchase.

Here's When 'Avengers: Endgame' Tickets Will Probably Go on Sale

The most realistic window is actually very soon.

Everything We Know About 'Love, Death & Robots' Season 2 Isn't Much

Netflix's bizarre, hypnotic new series will probably get a second season.

Netflix’s new NSFW anthological animated sci-fi series is unlike anything else on the streaming service, and we’re already wondering if we can expect a Love, Death & Robots Season 2, full of even more hyper-sexualized, and sometimes gruesome, sci-fi stories.

Love, Death & Robots Season 1 hit Netflix on Friday, March 15, 2019, offering 18 different stories of varied lengths between six and 17 minutes long, each telling a totally unique story using different animation styles.

Here's Where the Magnifying Glass Sits on the Treasure Map in 'Fortnite'

Look for the ice statues.

There’s a new challenge in the world of Fortnite: Battle Royale for Season 8, Week 3 that should also feel very familiar to players — it’s a fusion of two things we’re all used to doing.

Week 3 began Tuesday morning at 10:30 a.m. Eastern, about 90 minutes later than usual, and even more delayed than Week 2. We predicted that treasure map challenges would return in Season 8, and here in Week 3, they have returned … sort of.
