During production, I heard that Eva Longoria was supposed to play the Wasp. That didn't happen.

Anything about Ant-Man/Wasp and Avengers 2 is strictly rumor mill at this point. Whether they are tied to each other or solo projects apiece. Edgar Wright has been talking about it since 2007 so until he starts production or shows up at Comic Con with Friege treat it all as suspect.

She was spotted coming out of Marvel HQ ages ago, but apparently it was for another film. Who knows what.

Hopefully we'll finally get some more details this year (about Ant-Man, not Eva Longoria).

Lots of Whedonisms afterall.
I like the Black Widow's slightly perplexed response when Tony brings "the party" (ie the snake-ship) to them: "I - I don't think that's a party".

Estimated monetary toll of the Manhattan battle: $160bn. That's a lot of shiny hi-tech suits. Well, twentyish to fortyish.

Well, there was this guy on one of the TVs in the end who wanted to hold the heroes responsible for the damage. Maybe they'll use that as a plot for Avengers 2.

^ Hmmm... I wonder if Henry Peter Gyrich is one of those characters who can appear in both FOX and Marvel movies.

200 votes and it's nearly perfect that half voted A+!!
That shows quite a satisfaction level.

Even more interesting is that 98.5% of the votes is a C or better.

If Longoria gets the Wasp I'm having Jeremy Renner put an arrow through my skull.

I'm surprised Rogers didn't comment on how he was in a giant flying aircraft carrier. (Or maybe he did, and I just forgot it.) He actually didn't have as much trouble with modern technology as I was expecting, aside from that one amusing line where he pulls out the complicated-looking panel and goes "It seems to run on some form of electricity!"
When you think about it, nothing he sees here is really that much more advanced than all the retro sci-fi gadgets HYDRA had in his movie's version of World War II. Less advanced, in some ways, since everybody is still using bullets instead of lasers.

Which is odd, since Howard Stark recovered the Tesseract you'd think SHIELD, Stark Industries or the US Government would have been able to figure out how it works and duplicate Red Skull's work considering they had 70 years to do it in.

Which is why I think introducing the Asgardian technology in CA was sort of a mistake as for the MCU it sort of muddies things a bit when you scrutinize them. Inside of a year SHIELD is able to take the Asgardian Destroyer, reverse-engineer it and not only duplicate this wildly different technology but also miniaturize it in comparison to the original. But in 70 years they couldn't take the Tesseract and make radically new technology or harness it's power to make ultimate free energy when they've already got their hands on Hydra's weapons and research as well as have the most brilliant minds in the world working with them on it? Including Howard Stark and eventually Bruce Banner, Tony Stark and Erik Selvig.

Sort of seems odd.
