Michael Douglas as Henry Pym? OK, but the character of Janet (assuming she exists in the MCU) should not be his wife.
Why not? Look who Douglas is married to in real life.

There is a significant age difference between Hank and Jan in the comics as well. Jan was barely an adult and Hank was already a widower when they met.

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."
Based on past Marvel practice, I think the dump truck of money is unlikely.

Johnny Depp, apparently.
I'm thinking that has the potential to be either awesome, or a total freakin' disaster.

They haven't really hired somebody quite so well known for the main role since Edward Norton. It would surprise me, but, given the caliber of much of their supporting cast, it wouldn't be completely shocking.

This the first time I'm hearing that Hank Pym was some sort of cradle-robber.

In the 60s, using hindsight, or maybe you were there, what did you think the age difference between Hank and Jan was?

If you're asking me, I didn't start reading AVENGERS till the late 1970's. The age difference between Hank and Janet was never anything that I read about. For all I knew, they were as close in age as Peter Parker and Betty Brant.

Marvel Triple Action, reprinted early Avengers comics throughout most of the 70s.

I did say "hindsight". You can read comics form the 60s, or reprints of those comincs at any point in your life after they have been printed and delivered to a shop and the shop has put them out for sale.

Peter was 15 when Betty was J. Jonah Jameson's executive secretary and probably office manager. She had at least 5 years on Peter if she had already graduated high school and climbed to the top of the totem in the Bugle office.

Of course she did marry Flash Thompson, but then his current girlfriend is at least 10 thousand years old, so he likes to stealing form the casket.

To be a widower all you need is a dead wife.

I was in the single digits. They were both old/adults. Even in the 70s they were both old/adults. Somewhere along the line some writer or editor began over thinking things and Hank became an older man and Jan became a sweet young thing. Same thing happened with Reed and Sue. Though in that case the "evidence" is more compelling.

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

I think making her 40 or 50 wouldn't be unreasonable. Clearly younger than Douglas to fit the cradle robbing aspect of Pym, but not so young as to think that she should be with Scott Lang. That being said, Paul Rudd is in his 40s, so maybe there's no way to avoid that implication.

The more I think about this, the more I see the decision to have Pym as the older Ant-Man and not the protagonist. The biggest reason is simply that Pym is a dick. That being said, I hope he isn't the villain because that's not fair to the character either.
