Re: Ant-Man: Info, Pics, Rumors, Casting and Details till release

When I first started reading comics, Jan led the Avengers. The Wasp was the Shit. She sent Namor the fricking Submariner to his room... Okay maybe that didn't happen, but wouldn't it have been cool if it did? (Something like that probably happened.)

I have nothing against a mature Wasp in her 30s, if I get a movie where she's a flirty fashion ditz first.

Overcoming what Pym did, made that Woman. She stopped playing the fool, knuckled down and became the perfect example of the top of her field... A genius, billionaire, super hero, industrialist, philanthropist.

Re: Ant-Man: Info, Pics, Rumors, Casting and Details till release

That's my only real disappointment with these Avengers movies. No Ant-Man and especially no Wasp. I can't say it wasn't a good movie, but about 2/3s of the way through I was wishing they put Ant-Man and Wasp in there. And now with the news of the new movie with Ultron...

Ant-Man and Wasp? I know it's Tron Legacy, but it always makes me think of Hank and Janet.

For the record, Edgar Wright has been promising an Ant-Man movie since Comic Con 2006.

Since then we have gotten three Iron Man movies, The Incredible Hulk, Thor (soon to be 2), Captain America (soon to be 2), and the Avengers movie.

I'll believe this movie is actually made when it is released in theaters!

Don't forget Guardians of the Galaxy as well. A movie I'm sure no one expected to see just yet, or at all.

Tony Stark trying to explain Star Trek to Rocket Raccoon was just precious.

Re: Ant-Man: Info, Pics, Rumors, Casting and Details till release

Some updates are happening on Ant-Man.

While out promoting The Worlds End director Edgar Wright let it be known, quelling speculation of which Ant Man would headline, that Hank Pym is the films leads.
"For the one percent of people who are like, 'Wait, Hank Pym would never do that!' there's 99 percent going, 'Who's Hank Pym?'" That's what Wright had to say about his level of freedom while making the movie, thanks to using a "lesser-known character." It also confirms that yes, this is Hank Pym in his Ant-Man movie, and not one of the other heroes to wear the mantle like Scott Lang or Eric O'Grady.

Also Ant-Man, after several drafts Wright has done, will enter official Pre-Production status this October.
In an interview about The World’s End with Collider, Ant-Man director Edgar Wright said, “I’m starting doing pre-production on Ant-Man in like October, and then shooting next year. ...."
So probably after it's been in full on pre-production status for a month or so and after Thor Dark World's release I'm guessing the casting rumors that might have some weight to them will start to filter out.

Re: Ant-Man: Info, Pics, Rumors, Casting and Details till release

Edgar Wright was teasing a photo(pre-production testing) of Ant-Man this past Wednesday. Now that Guardians of the Galaxy is done filming I'd guess we can start expecting casting rumors on this in the next month to six weeks. To really kick up after Thor Dark World is released.

Leave it to Edgar Wright to know how to tease fans online. Moments ago, the The World's End helmer posted an image to his Twitter account that shows off a behind-the-scenes look at his upcoming Ant-Man. Check it out below!

"Now I'm back in LA," he writes, "it's high time to finish a little something I've been working on..."

Re: Ant-Man: Info, Pics, Rumors, Casting and Details till release

It's not going to be a super hero costume.

"Logically" (from the look of it) it'll be a pressure suit to cope with the relative multiples of air pressure he will be experiencing, once he's reduced to ant size even if he is approximately the same equivalent mass/weight depending on how they explain the fake science of Pym Particles... And lets face it, air will be too massive for him to metabolize like how O'Brien and Bashir had trouble that time in One Little Ship, so he'll need a scuba rig minimum.

Man in an Anthill, had Pym getting lot in a tiny alien environment.

Marvel Premier, had Scott nicking an old Antman costume to rescue his daughter from a bastard.

Irredeemable Antman had shield agent /security guard Eric O'Grady "borrow" a next gen Antman suit while the Hellicarrier was under attack form bastards to save his ass. Not save the day. Save his ass.

If you mix that together what do you get?

Die Hard on the Hellicarrier.

A lot of superheroes outfits aren't made purely to be "super hero costumes". Thor just wears his normal clothes, Hulk just wears whatever Bruce was wearing before he changed, Iron Man built his armor to escape capture. Superman's clothes are Kryptonian (in some continuities), Green Lantern wears a GLC uniform, Swamp Thing doesn't wear any clothes.

He could be squatting?

In the comics he has regular human strength at ant size.

But if he's farting with the strength of a regular sized human being then that would be like rocket exhaust blowing from his rear.

Next Summer, you will believe that an ant can fly.
