Breaking news from Marvel’s own fictional television network, WHiH! Anchor Christine Everhart (Leslie Bibb) brings viewers up to speed on the recent traumatic events that took place in Sokovia (see Avengers: Age of Ultron) before delving into a more personal look at whistle-blower and criminal Scott Lang (Paul Rudd). It’s a fun way for Marvel to take some potshots at news organizations, especially those that are subsidiaries of mega-corporations, even if their whole tongue-in-cheek approach is a bit ironic. It also provides some more connective tissue between the films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe while keeping Bibb’s character Everhart involved.
