Ant-Men?!

  • In a surprise announcement yesterday, Marvel officially revealed the identity of Paul Rudd's Ant-Man confirming him to be Scott Lang! Many people had assumed that Rudd would be playing the original Ant-Man, Hank Pym, but with the revelation of Rudd being Lang, where does that leave Pym in the upcoming Ant-Man film? Portrayed by Michael Douglas, that's where! I don't think anyone was expecting this, share your thoughts in the comments.

    • Look, I like the idea that they're taking a bit of a Watchmen-take on Hank Pym. Wright said that in the MCU, Pym will have been fighting crime as Ant-Man in the 60's. MY main concern is - well, where does this leave Wasp? I REALLY wanted to see Pym and Janet fight alongside The Avengers - of course Pym is ruled out, but so far not Janet. The rumors last November about Rashida Jones testing for Wasp were mentioned alongside the Paul Rudd casting rumors - those turned out to be true, so I have faith that Rashida Jones' involvement is true as well. Honestly, I wouldn't mind if they put Janet with Scott Lang. It'd be completely unfaithful to the comics, but I want Marvel to do ANYTHING they can to throw her in an Avengers movie. She's one of the few big-Marvel heroines that Marvel Studios has the rights to.

      As for Michael Douglas himself, great casting. As Hank Pym? Not what I wanted. Marvel seems to be casting a lot of big names as of recent (Ben Kingsley, Robert Redford) and I feel that they aren't being put to proper use.

    • Hey, now, I don't think we should judge 'till we see him in action. After all Kingsley was incredible, Redford we have yet to see, and the idea of Douglas being Hank Pym, is perfect. Marvel's never done something without a reason, and they always have damn good ones, so we shoud just wait for the rest of the details about the fim first.

    • I'd prefer to see Pym as the main Ant-Man too and be younger but then again I don't really know that much about the Ant-Men to care. Does make me wonder what they'll do with Wasp if she's in it.

    • I kindaa like thee idea of Pym being a mentor. No idea about Wasp though.

        Loading editor
    • What if Wasp was Scott's girlfriend, since Hank is old

        Loading editor
    • Wasp might be old too for all we know. Seems like a lot of unnecessary source material changes. Scott had a wife and daughter in the comics.

    • i would like to see the movie start with hank pym give his costume to scott lang because pym fought as antman in the 60s

        Loading editor
    • I think it's more meant to be heist so Lang will probably steal the suit.

    • If the rumor about Hank Pym being the villain is true, why would Marvel change character so much like that?

        Loading editor
    • I HIGHLY doubt that rumor.

    • Wright mentioned that the villain in this movie's abilities will come from Ant-Man technology. If Henry is the villain, that would disappoint me and other Ant-Man followers. We wouldn't see an Ant-Man villain who deserves to be the main villain.

      1: Elihas Starr/Egghead. Hank's most threatening adversary under Ultron. He already has the "creepy killer scientist" vibe in the comics. If he's in the movie, using the correct actor under Edgar's direction, Starr could become 1 of the best super-villains in the MCU.

      2: David Cannon/Whirlwind. Pym's most threatening adversary under Egghead. According with the comics, his wind generation ability can become widespread. His abilities'll have to be caused by a high-tech suit cause of coming from his being a mutant in the comics.

      3: Erik Josten/Atlas Most threatening adversary under Whirlwind. That'd be 2 giant humans in hand to hand combat by using the CGI in 2015.

    • And i have to say, Edgar not evenly hinting that van Dyne is in this movie is peculiar.

    • MCU's version is different to earth-616. I know that both Hank pym and Wasp were young in EMH, one of marvel's good series. Although i loved to see Hank's version, this kind of twist seemed fit. About Janet, they could add twist as Janet is working for Pym and actually her wife, but she's young. And maybe Scott and Janet be couple, i know it sounds so lame, but it'd be all better than seeing an old Janet and not even wasp. 

      Funny thing is, Kevin said they wanna change the script to fit the modern MCU, and they're still using the same old one, Hank in past and Lang in present. 

      By the way, why Hank Pym, a retired hero in 60's, turns into villain ? I mean, he's Hank Pym, the scientist who created the technology aka pym particles. Then in future, he turns villain as Scott steals it from him ? This sounds wrong. To me, Whirlwind seems the most obvious choice to become the primary villain, along with Egg-head. I dont think Atlas could be in this. But, who really is Castillo ? One of the villains in past with Hank Pym, rumored to be played by that latino dude. I've never heard of him, but hopefully, both Whirlwind and Egg-head team-up seems good to me.

      ya never heard of Castillo because theres no such character in the Marvel comics

    • Well, there is a character named Doctor Castillo in the comics. But this character is a female. Check here http://marvel.wikia.com/Doctor_Castillo_(Earth-616)

      To be honest, i think its best that Marvel uses Egghead for 60s while Whirlwind for current time.

    • I heard that Gary Oldman is gonna be Klaw, and Tim Curry is gonna be Egghead.

    • Heard from who?

    • @Tragould : Klaw ? Isn't Klaw rights belong to Fox ? He's one of F4 enemies, despite Black Panther's enemies. I mean, i don't think Klaw is in Ant-Man, especially his rights aren't in Marvel Studios. But, there should be a source of Egghead's existance.

    • You guys should check out Roger Wardell on Twitter... He's been leaking Marvel info for 2 years now - he is VERY reliable... He knew things ranging from Falcon appearing in Cap 2 to revealing that Baron von Strucker was going to be in Avengers 2 in AUGUST 2012... He also spoiled pretty much everything from Iron Man 3, Agents of SHIELD and Thor: The Dark World last year. 

      For the last few weeks he's been leaking some Avengers 2 stuff... As far as Ultron's creation goes, he said:

      - Hank Pym creates the Ultron software 

      - It gets sold to HYDRA

      - Tony eventually creates the body with Vibranium

      He also said that some of Ultron's origins will be revealed in Ant-Man.

    • I don't understand how the movie will take place in the 1960s. Is it a prequel, somewhat like Captain America?

      The only character in MARVEL COMICS named Castillo is Doctor Castillo. Doctor Castillo is medical doctor specializing in metahumans, mutants, and other superhumans and is mainly involed in X-Men related things.

      Edgar Wright mentioned that this movie will have Hank as Ant-Man in the 60's while Scott'll be Ant-Man in this age. I read that on the page for this movie.

    • @S.h.i.e.l.d: I gave the link already. Thats who i meant that exists in the comic universe, but i feel this could be a new name for one of the Ant-man villains, but its rumor at all.

      And a 15 minutes of movie might involve Hank and his pym particles, and his relationship with Shield as first ant-man. Janet will also appear as his wife, but i think it'd be a good twist if she's getting frozen, like Cap. And in modern world, with Scott, can pair up with Janet. So, we'd see Janet as Wasp in Avengers 3 possibly.

      Then isn't Lang's/Rudd's role in the film insignificant?

      If Hank being in the 60's was tookin away from the script, Douglas being cast for portaying Pym would indicate that Henry never became Ant-Man and that Hank simply made the Ant-Suit.
