    Even though the article writes it as though they are both contesting for the same role, Pym presumably, maybe that's not the case.

    How about Rudd as Pym and Levitt as Lang?

    Batman to Antman?

    That's a serious demotion.

    Even not quite Robin to Ant-Man is a demotion.

    On the other hand, supporting actor in a huge movie as oppose to title and lead character?

    ^Exactly my thoughts. Also, Blake was a one-off role, whereas Pym has potential to be recurring.

    I hope the Rudd rumor is. That has the potential to be very, very, cool.

    I would love it if it turned out to be Paul Rudd.

    Kevin Feige sort of addresses the Paul Rudd/Ant-man rumors:

    Rumor that the front runner to play the Janet Van Dyne is Rashida Jones:

    Interesting to Note that Paul Rudd and Rashida Jones have a ton of chemistry with each other from previous movies.

    They'll need lots of chemistry to get past the fact that he has major shrinkage issues....

    According to IGN, cast will be known before the end of the year, and Feige says Ant-man will be a 'heist' flick:

    Interesting. I'm curious what that entirely means, but it will hopefully be interesting an exciting. I know the plan is to make it stand-alone, but I'm curious if there are plans to bring Ant-Man to the Avengers (even if just in the post-credits scene).

    BTW, what was that last question in the interview, I couldn't quite make it out?

    ETA: Not that it was really in doubt, but it's clear they're actively pursuing a Doctor Strange movie.

    Is this Schmoe guy legit? Add another source to the mix, but there is definitely some smoke here.

    They spelt whack wrong.

    Unless it's supposed to be whax?

    That K, kinda looks like an X.

    In which point they spelt wax wrong.

    When you're watching the Incredibles with your kinds... Do you ever think "Jason Lee you son of a bitch! You stole Hank Pym's brilliant plan!"?

    One of thins I've loved about the Marvel movies is that they're actually letting the movies all be different, instead of trying to make them all the same kinds of action movies. It sounds like this should be continuing the trend.
