Behind the scenes

  • When Edgar Wright was first considering actors for an older Hank Pym. Sean Bean, Pierce Brosnan and Gary Oldman were all considered before Michael Douglas was cast.


  • Nathan Fillion was in the running to play Hank before it was decided the character would not appear in The Avengers and never auditioned. He was a fan favorite amongst the comic book community to portray Hank.
  • In the comics, Hank is roughly the same age as his Avenger teammates, while in the movie, he is older.
  • In the comics and film, Henry is the discoverer and user of Pym Particles.
  • In the comics, Pym's goes by many different alter-egos including Yellowjacket, Ant-Man, and Wasp. Yellowjacket will be use by Darren Cross as the supervillain's name. Ant-Man will be used by Scott Lang. Wasp will presumably be used by Janet Van Dyne, although she, like Lang, used that name in the comics as well as the film.
