Marvel Teases 'Ant-Man' With Mock News Broadcast

(Radio.com) Is Scott Lang a bona fide hero who crusaded on behalf of cheated VistaCorp customers? Or is he a vicious thief? WHiH's Christine Everhart is investigating.

Well, Leslie Bibb playing Everhart is investigating, anyway, in the just-released mock news promo for Marvel's Ant-Man. Ant-Man's marketing campaign has gotten creative in a way sure to make fans of the Marvel universe giggle by way of the new promo, which offers up plenty of Easter eggs from recent superhero films.

Bibbs' character Everhart, for instance, first emerged in Iron Man, and as the report begins, the anchor is finishing coverage of the "conflict in Sokovia"--a nod to the events of the end of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Additionally, the scroll at the bottom of the program includes nods to Avengers' villain Baron Von Strucker and Thor's Jane Foster.

As A.V. Club notes, Everhart also asks for more "transparency" from superheroes when it comes to their culpability for, well, destroying countries, which is essentially the "backbone" for the upcoming Captain America: Civil War. Read more here.
