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

Newsarama did an article where they shared some theories on who could be the villain(s) of Ant-Man. This is just pure speculation with no new info.
Their ideas are:
The Tinkerer
Yellowjacket
Hydra
The founder of a tech corporation who has the same heart defect as Cassie.

^^^^
That link takes me to Batman: Arkhamverse wiki style page

I'm assuming the article includes Yellowjacket and surmises a way that the Pym is the bad guy and Lang is trying to save him from himself type scenario?

Oops, I forgot to change links.
Here's the Newsarama article.

Yeah, it talks some about ways the different villains could fit into what we know so far.

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

CBR has put together a list of reasons whey Ant-Man could break out. Essentially if you've been involved in this thread we've covered 90% or equal to this articles reasons.

If however, you are just checking in on this thread out of curiosity for the first time this article is a good primer of why you shouldn't off handily dismiss Ant-Man's potential for success.

The Ant-Man movie's release date has moved up to July 17.

It's taking over Superman/Batman's original release date. And the Superman/Batman delay is the gift that keeps on giving! Score one for Marvel!

The move puts Ant-Man up against WB's Pan. It'll be interesting to see if they both stick to that date and duke it out.

I don't think Pan will be much competition. The last two recent live action Peter Pan movies weren't really successful. Hook was a disappointment, and Peter Pan (2003) was an outright flop.

Hook was a hit. It was the fourth highest grossing movie of 1991 in worldwide box office. Peter Pan flopped - even though it's a very good movie - because Universal gambled, incorrectly, that the character and story would be enough of a box office draw and that big stars weren't needed. Pan has the potential to be a strong box office draw.

Oh? I guess it was just a disappointment with critics. I never saw what was so good about that movie.

I thought that movie was okay. Yeah, I was surprised they went with such unknowns for the movie. Peter Pan himself doesn't guarantee a blockbuster.

Pan has the potential to be a strong box office draw.
Maybe. Many people still consider the Disney Peter Pan animated movie to be the definitive version. Any live action Peter Pan movie has a lot to live up to.

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

I think this is a good move as of now. Sight unseen of trailers for either film.

Both are, at this point, relying more on Brand awareness.
Ant-Man as a Marvel film
Pan as the fairy tale you've known for decades

I give the edge to Ant-Man since Avengers Age of Ultron will likely give it a teaser for momentum when it comes out 2.5months before it.

At this point, with what we know of each project so far, I think it's a close race domestically, but Pan has the edge worldwide.

I would ordinarily expect one of them to move, but Warners and Disney are getting into such a pissing match that they might actually go up against each other.

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

As Paul Rudd is out promoting other projects he's starting to get Ant-Man questions. The responses are about what you'd expect this early in the process of him just getting selected.

"Well, It's all just kind of starting, so it's really cool," Paul Rudd told Flicks And The City about playing Scott Lang in Marvel's Ant-Man. "I'm very excited about it. I read some comics and seen some [Marvel] movies and I knew Edgar Wright for many years. The whole thing that it's actually happened, that I got the part is still kind of surreal. It's still sinking in over these last several months," the comedian-actor added, indicating that he was certainly fibbing when he told reporters last month that his involvement was but a rumor.
What, talent might lie to us to keep private deals from falling apart(remember that as you read denials on FF reboot casting)?!

With the awesome new CA:TWS posters dropping today I'm even more eager for casting to finalize and production to start on this.

Reports that Evangeline Lilly is in negotiations for the female lead:

It is unclear who Lilly would be playing, though some insiders say she would play Pym’s (Douglas) daughter and Lang’s love interest.

Could she be playing Wasp?

It makes more sense for Lang to end up with Pym's daughter than Janet Van Dyme. Does he have a love interest in the comics?
