Ant-Man, a founding Avenger who was left out of the Phase One plan will make his introduction into the MCU during Phase Two. Announced during SDCC 2012. As of this time it's speculation if the film will be a late Fall release in November 2014 or another slot. Marvel/Disney may do 3 releases a year during Phase two. Ant-Man is another Stan Lee/Jack Kirby team-up created character so it's not hard to see why he was chosen. Characters by those guys seem to be adaptable and relatable. There have been 3 different men to use the Ant-Man persona and early rumors are that the film may feature two of them. Ant-Man 1 - Hank Pym (original) Ant-Man 2 - Scott Lang (just back from the dead in comics) Ant-Man 3 - Eric O'Grady (started as a SHIELD agent) I expect Janet Van Dyne aka Wasp to at least appear even if she doesn't become Wasp. Especially with the possibility of 2 Ant-Men for the film. I intentionally included a load of links and images for people who are not fully aware of the character. Just in discussion of The Avengers film thread a number have let it be known the films are their only portal in thus far. So I wanted to include in this OP a good primer as details begin to emerge, especially a few weeks from now when Edgar Wright really gets started on the project. My thinking is if they do go with two Ant-Men it'll be Pym and O'Grady. You have to have the original and with SHIELD having such an integral influence in the MCU it's easy to use O'Grady. I'd prefer they don't make him as irredeemable and corny as he was often times portrayed. He could be funny man to Pym's straight man I suppose. Thoughts on this development and what you might like to see for an Ant-Man movie....it's happening.
