What’s great about Marvel Studios is that the powers that be realize they’re not making The Dark Knight with their movies. (Netlfix’s Daredevil is another story, but it maintained some instances of comedy, and the same goes for Jessica Jones.) As reiterated time and again with the various bloopers and gag reels for the films, it’s hard for the actors to turn off this humor. Now we have two more videos to add to our collection — more gag reels for Ant-Man and the Phase 2 MCU films at large.
Marvel released an extended version of the bloopers from Ant-Man on YouTube, and the video shows Paul Rudd (Scott Lang) and Evangeline Lilly (Hope van Dyne) cussing, stumbling, and cussing some more. As with the first gag reel released for the film, there’s no beating Michael Pena (Luis), especially when he’s talking about crazy smoothie concoctions with David Dastmalchian (Kurt). Watch the shenanigans play out below.
Elsewhere, Rudd returns for more laughs in a supercut of bloopers from Phase 2 films Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man 3, and Ant-Man. Watch as Zoe Saldana dances around the set, Anthony Mackie shouts “cut the check,” and a falling bag cuts the tension in Robert Downey Jr.’s Tony Stark pad.
You can check out the extended blooper reel of Ant-Man on the home release, while the Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase 2 Collection features a trunk load of bonus materials, including deleted scenes from various films and cast and crew commentary on what’s to come. As for Rudd, he’ll return for more gags in Captain America: Civil War next year, Ant-Man and The Wasp in 2018, and (presumably) the two-part Infinity War in 2018 and 2019.
