Default Re: The Avengers casting thread

Whedon probably cared because, at the time, 60s spy Ant-Man was going to be in the MCU. That's why he got a mention as an old man's friend and SHIELD contact in Thor. Since then, however, the mention was cut out of Thor, and Ant Man was again revealed to be a standalone film.

No they are not. Fans keep imagining they are, but if they were, they would say something, anything, to indicate they were.

I hope they get someone more interesting for Ant Man.
That's true. But being a super genius isn't really what makes Ant-Man interesting, either, is it?
