From NYFW to awards season. Fashion editorials and behind the scenes with some up and coming people who are about to make their mark. We also have game news, anime daily round-ups and more. With trips to SDCC and Coachella on deck, we only have more coming. So keep looking out.
Found an awesome thing to do with my little buddy today. Take him to 711 for Slurpee Day. We, here at WestBornEastBred, thought it be cool to show the buddy Rocket Raccoon around Earth. He thinks we are pretty backwoods and he’s been to places better. So why not showing the guy around. He’s on Earth til August 1st when we get to see him in person. Check the site and under the tag Geek Nation to see what he gets into here on our turf. By the way….DID YOU GET YOUR SLURPEE?????

It has been announced by Marvel Studios that Thomas Kretschmann has been cast as an unnamed villain in Age of Ultron. This announcement joins Elizabeth Olsen(Scarlet Witch), Aaron Taylor Johnson(Quiksilver) and the recently announced Michael Douglas for Ant-Man’s Hank Pym. Thomas announcement adds fuel that the Marvel Comics villain Baron Von Strucker is supposed to make an appearance in the movie. Baron Von Strucker is the leader of Hydra. If you have seen Captain America, then you know that Hydra has a huge presence in the Marvel Universe as a whole. The casting seems to be a pretty spot on assessment that he will be playing Baron Von Strucker since they have some similarities. This adds to the numerous casting news coming from Marvel this week. I’m sure no one can wait for the next bit of news. Thomas Kretschmann can currently be seen playing “Van Helsing” on NBC’s Dracula

So the Hollywood Reporter is stating that Michael Pena maybe added to the cast of Marvel’s AntMan with Paul Rudd and yesterday’s announced Michael Douglas. This would be exciting news because it means that the cast is further coming together. As we can see Marvel is really putting a strong effort into getting their movies done with the schedule that they have set. With Winter Soldier(4-4-2014) and Guardians of the Galaxy coming this summer. Marvel does not appear to be slowing down. Michael Pena can currently be seen in American Hustle
Hollywood Reporter:Michael Pena in negotiable for AntMan
So….Michael Douglas has been cast as Hank Pym. Anyone who reads comics knows that Hank Pym was the first Ant-Man. This more then likely means that Paul Rudd will be playing Scot Lang. Scott was the second Ant-Man who stole the persona and technology from Hank. He later became an Avenger and a hero. Ant-Man is slated for release July 31,2015 as the launch of Marvel’s Phase 3 after Avengers:Age of Ultron.
