If you take a 5 star storyline away from a character who is only known for one 5 star storyline,then there's no need for Hank Pym in the MCU.
Think about it this way: Scott Lang is probably the protagonist of the Ant-Man film, not Hank Pym. Hank Pym is probably an old, retired hero. He works in the "To Steal An Ant-Man" storyline because it's based on Lang taking up the mantle of Ant-Man.
When you think of it like that it makes sense. Sucks for Pym (from the standpoint he doesn't get to be a major hero anyway)...but it makes sense of how the Ant-Man movie will work still.
