Yeah I thought Pym was supposed to be the Danny Ocean type character in a heist movie that Wright hinted at Ant-Man becoming. Lang would be the main guy, but Pym would be the sort of mentor. Maybe he was a relevant superhero in the 70's and 80's that had ties to the initial development of Ultron. Something like the Sentinels in X-Men where work on them began as early as the 70's as the new movie is laying out. I think Hank/Janet could work as older counterparts that don't necessarily anchor the Avengers in the modern day.
