Marvel’s new trailer for Ant-Man was just released online a few days ago, and it’s already garnered over 7 million views. Fans are hyped for the new film’s July 17 premier, but for some, the anticipation makes that date still feels miles away. If you’re wondering what to do with yourself until the film hits theatres, here are a few ways you can get your Marvel fix, and the best way to take advantage of each.
Binge Watch a Marvel Show on Netflix
Marvel’s new Daredevil show on Netflix has gotten excellent reviews from audiences and critics alike since it premiered a few days ago. Indiewire contributor Jessica Kiang called the show “a complex, provocative, clever and absorbing treat” while also noting, “it’s been quite a while since you’ve heard me append a string of adjectives like that to any superhero property at all.”
The show has already earned a 9.3 rating from over 26,000 reviewers on IMDb, and the views are only expected to grow. The best way to enjoy this show? Binge watch it as soon as possible—lest you avoid hearing spoilers the more it’s covered in the media and talked about by your friends.
Grow Your Comic Collection
What better way to get your Ant-Man fix than to read the comics he originated from? You could just indulge in the old comics, but why not add something a little more unique to add to your collection? Stan Lee recently released a new collection of iconic comic book covers, previously on display for viewing at the Chain Street gallery.
According to Get Reading, fans with a little extra spending money can purchase limited edition images from the collection that are signed by Stan Lee. They may cost a pretty penny, but buying one will certainly get your mind off Ant-Man for a while.
As if you needed another excuse to buy more comics…
Revisit Some Marvel Games
Gaming is probably the most interactive way you can spend your time until the movie comes out, and your options are endless when it comes to Marvel games. Think about all of the movies Marvel has put out in the last two decades. A quick recollection could give you at least 20 titles that have been created under the publisher’s umbrella. And for each one of those movies they’ve created based on a Marvel character, there’s an equal if not exceeding number of games for the title, meaning your gaming opportunities to game have tripled compared to your movie choices. Just look at this GamesRadar list of Spidey games for starters!
For the best experience, play smart, and don’t be afraid to take advantage of promotions for games. If you play the Marvel-themed games at Betfair, for example, you should take advantage of their promotions to get the most for your money. They offer new customer bonuses including a 100 percent match bonus up to £200 (about $300). They also host games for every Marvel character you can imagine, from Daredevil and Fantastic Four, to X-Men and the Avengers. It probably won’t be long before Ant-Man gets his own slot as well, so keep an eye out for that.
We’re still a few months out the Ant-Man premiere, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t some great ways to spend your days in the meantime. Take advantage of a few of these options until summer, and the film will be here before you know it.
