(Oh god I can't believe I'm saying this...) TO TALL!

1.65 m = 165/2.54 ins = 64.96... inches = 5ft 4.96... inches,
Oh? She's tiny?

I think that she only surrounds herself with even tinier people which is why I thought she was some sort of giantess.

Honestly she always towers above the cast of Saturday Night live.

Can't wait to see who they cast as Janet Van Dyne.
It's rumored that Rashida Jones is close to signing for the part.

She would be fine. She's a close match in age for Rudd.

And they've played a romantic couple before.

I think Pym is supposed to have ten years on Janet.

But she makes up for her immaturity with incalculable wealth.

If she was in her very early 20s and Pym was in his mid thirties when he hit her, child abuse (in the 80s) is more understandable than spousal abuse.

"Sometimes I have to give Janet a slap on the bum to correct her thinking."

(These pairings were made in the 1960s when everyone took child brides.)

* Unless you were John Byrne and carried on writing creepy pairings right into the 1990s - indeed, one (Reed and Sue as a young girl) actually got name checked as 'creepy' in the last issue of Fantastic Four.

Do you mean in the letters column? I saw that, but actually in the story?

You ever seen Taken?

Max headroom and that that Snot nose girl from the Blair witch were paired romantically May/October...

"The day you turned 18, I could not believe how beautiful you were and I knew I had to have you you."

"Really? What took you so long? I decided I was going to marry you by the time I was 11."

Well, we've narrowed that down. But the rumors I'd heard had always indicated Joseph Gordon-Levitt for Dr. Strange, not Ant-Man.

A friend of mine told me that there is a formula for the appropriateness of dating a younger woman.

He said "Cut your age in half and add seven years. If her age falls within that range, then you're good."

I'm 46. Cut in half to 23, add 7, and we come in just under the wire.

Until they edited it, the Variety article on the subject also said that Pym was the bad guy...

Interesting casting. It sounds like they are adhering to some version of the story template that Wright discussed years and years ago.

Also, Scott Lang being in it probably means we get Cassie, which is a big plus for me.
