I mistyped. I don't think it really changed anything about the post, but I fixed it. I wouldn't want to leave a spelling error, it might have made the whole post nonsensical

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

The most exciting part of this news for me is the '60s Tales to Astonish era Ant-Man portion that's planned to be filmed. I loved Captain America as a period superhero movie and this sounds like something in a similar vein.

I was already excited to see this movie and this new information left me smiling all day.

and he won't be Ant-Man (I suspect he'll still create Pym particles).
From the old reports of this script, the idea was that Pym would be Ant-Man in the 1960s and Lang would be Ant-Man in the present day. If they're casting a big name like Douglas as the older Pym, I suspect they've reduced or eliminated the story of the younger Pym (otherwise they would have cast a young man and given him old-age makeup for the present day scenes), but I wouldn't be surprised if he was once supposed to have been Ant-Man in the narrative.
Yeah, I'm thinking that as well. It would also be a good opportunity to incorporate young Hank Pym into an Agent Carter series or AoS flashback as a guest character, depending on how the movie sets things up.

This was a huge shock for me. I still can't believe the caliber of actors they're casting in these movies. First Tommy Lee Jones, then Glenn Close and Robert Redford, and now Michael Douglas. I can't wait to see who they're going to get next.

Why do you think he's been marginalized by Marvel Studios?
Because the person who is creating this story had an idea in mind and wanted to go with that idea.
And, honestly, whoever thought that we'd get an Ant-Man movie in the first place? Part of me is still amazed that Hank Pym (who is not exactly a household name) is going to be appearing on the big screen at all, let alone be played by Michael Douglas of all people.

There's no rule that says that every Marvel character gets their own shot at a movie franchise. Hank has no more been marginalized than the Vision, Wonder Man, Moon Dragon,Tigra, Swordsman, the Black Knight, Hellcat, Moon Knight, Mantis, Quasar, Doctor Druid, Ms. Marvel, and any number of other Marvel characters who may or may not get star treatment at some point.

Of course, it can backfire. You could have a bored Anthony Hopkins playing Odin.

Michael Douglas as Henry Pym? OK, but the character of Janet (assuming she exists in the MCU) should not be his wife. Janet as Pym's daughter? Forget it. Maybe the Wasp is not destined to be in any movie, ever.

I mentioned earlier that Hank Pym could be featured in a flashback in AoS, an Agent Carter series, or a One Shot, depending on what's established in the movie. Hell, if Hank Pym is established as being far enough back in time, maybe he'll be back in a time when it was considered acceptable to hit a woman

Well, years ago it was also acceptable for Ms. Marvel to be raped. Apparently she enjoyed it too. A low point in Marvel's history.

Michael Douglas on why he took the "Ant-Man" role.

Fun, but his quotes are ambiguous enough emotionally to mean anything from "the script is great" to "they gave me a dumptruck full of money."

Is it standard Marvel practice now to sign you for multiple movies just in case?

^^^ I think it's pretty much standard movie practice at this point (if there's any chance at all a movie won't be a standalone), honestly.

Perhaps Raquel Welch could guest star as the original Wasp.

Interesting way to double your pleasure. But by Hollywood standards she's clearly too old for Michael Douglas.

As for Anthony Hopkins, he seems equally bored in the majority of his films after 1997 or so....
