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

Just got home and saw this on twitter. I had all but figured Rashida Jones had the role locked up pending an official announcement. Guess they were still testing, hence the delay.

Any reason the role couldn't still be Janet and in the MCU her role is that of lab assistant to Pym. Maybe there is some type of crush but no action ever taken on that feeling and Lang becomes Ant-Man but Pym wants someone he trusts alongside, watching out for his equipment or some such, so Wasp is created? Spitballing here?

I'm just suggesting that Lang and Janet shouldn't end up together. I think past Pym/flashback Pym should be with Janet provided they go that route.

Rather unlikely.

Scott Lang also doesn't have any notable love interests in the comics, so this is probably an all-new character.

What if they retooled the villainous female Yellow Jacket?

I loved it how she always ended up above her head and out of her depth.

But as for a women he's actually into, Scott was making out with Darla Deering, that pink haired rock star in the She-Thing exo-skeleton battle armour come the last issue of FF a month back.

http://www.comics.org/issue/1105999/cover/4/

http://www.comicvine.com/ms-thing/4005-85284/

Stole her right out from under Johnny Storm, if men could actually own women that is.

But goofy Johnny went off exploring the universe when he should have been paying her attention, so bad fricking luck if she forgot his name, when that girl was the only reason he fought his way home from hell.

I liked what Scott said to Doom in the end "Reed is a gentleman explorer, you don't have much to worry about when he defeats you, but me, I've been to prison, you #### with me again and I will shank you."

They actually brought the Thing Ring into Marvel comics?

They just activate a teleport-shunt to dress her in battle armour stored off site.

But yes, it looks just like the old cartoon.

I'm wondering if the Lily as Pym's daughter rumors are true, and they are just making Janet Hank's daughter instead of wife and having her get together with Lang.

That scenario wouldn't be my first choice, but it's an acceptable compromise.

Another possibility for a female character could be a young Henry Pym's first wife, Maria who was murdered.

That's good outside the box thinking for sure, but a possibility.
Be a shame to waste Lilly in that manner though.

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

The Hollywood Reporter said the role is one that requires signing on for multiple films.

That would indeed suggest Wasp. Maybe they first considered Rashida Jones (per earlier rumors) but wanted to go with someone more friendly to genre films?

Rashida Jones just signed on for a new television pilot for TBS. There may have been concerns about scheduling in the event the show goes to series.

If she had been serious about getting the Wasp role, she shouldn't have signed on to a tv pilot yet. Nearly all of them aren't picked up, and more than half each year end up getting canceled before the first season finishes. Being in a successful movie would greatly enhance her career more than some show.

The show is a good bet to be picked up and cable shows have much lower cancellation rates than broadcast network shows. If she was a shoo-in for Ant-Man she probably would have gone for that instead, but the security of a TV deal may have been more attractive if she was just one of a number of actresses in contention for Ant-Man. Anyway, it's just speculation. We'll see who actually ends up getting the part.
