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

An interesting and timely quote from Kevin Feige...

Hank Pym's notorious for two things in the comics, and one of them is now what Iron Man's going to be notorious for in "Avengers 2" -- the creation of Ultron. And the other one is that unfortunate spousal abuse story.

Guess what we're not doing! [Laughs] Look, Hank Pym did a lot in the comics, and he's a super cool character. And the spin that we have on him being played by Michael Douglas is even more unique, even more different. I would say that some of the spirit of that plays into his temperament in the film, plays into his gruffness in the film. It certainly does not, in this movie, go to spousal abuse.

Yeah, it was either that quote or a related recent quote by Feige I was referring to when I wrote this:

Well, like I said, many of the more extreme aspects are not going to part of the character at all, according to Feige.

Interesting that he chose to make the qualification "in this movie." Perhaps the door is staying open, at least for now, to explore that down the road.

By the way, the link is broken.

For anyone who's never actually seen it, here is the infamous slap panel.

Even leaving that panel aside, his behavior there wasn't all that noble. Syndrome was a bad guy in The Incredibles after all.

Well, the whole point of the story was that he was having a nervous breakdown.

I just found the Ant-Man cast and Peyton Reed's visit to the Entertainment Weekly Comicon Hangout.
Michael Douglas actually gives a fair amount of details about the backstory, including Janet's fate.

Yeah, and Peyton Reed looks at him like "what the hell are you doing right now."

Yeah, It might be awkward enough if he was hitting a female superheroine in a costume.. that's still violence against a woman, but that kind of thing isn't unusual considering female heroes re ready to fight, even against opponents awho are clearly stronger than they are. But this panel shows a woman who not only isn't in costume, but she's in lingerie. She looks like she has no superpowers and is not strong enough to defend herself, a single slap knocks her off her feet. And this is his wife? Yeah.. it does get one to worry.

He looks more borderline Charlie Sheen to me, especially after seeing the panel interview.

They always fallback on saying "For my kids" or "For my grand kids" in the case of Douglas and Redford

Then you have "The Avengers" making a billion dollars. So its incentive for actors who want to cash in on the phenomenon.

Now we wait for Clint eastwood to take some role.....
