Personally, I think someone in the RDJ/Ruffalo age range would be the best route. To make Pym look like a peer of Stark and Banner.

So I like the suggestions of Jason Bateman or Ewan McGregor.

My top three picks: Simon Baker, then Patrick Wilson, then Benedict Cumberbatch.

Ewan McGregor is also not a bad choice as some have suggested, he'd be my number four pick.

Adam Scott. I still have to go with him, because he just looks like that kinda guy that would create an Ultron.

Val Kilmer will never get back to his Thunderheart days physically. He'd be better suited to playing the Blob in an X-Men movie now unfortunately.

Val Kilmer got kind of big. I think he might make a good egghead or some other villain though.

I rather they focus on Hank and Janet then try this whole to steal an antman story. Save that for a sequel.

there won't be a sequel; especially if they focus on Hank and Janet. i think that Wright should tell the story based on To Steal an Ant-Man in a way that sets up Hank and Jan to appear in the Avengers. Scott has a neat one and done story. neither Hank or Janet have that kind of story (at least not a good one).

i'm surprised that he's such a favorite for the role. he doesn't physically resemble Pym, at all. plus he rarely plays protagonists. on the other hand, i'm sure that he could make it entertaining.

If Wright was could cast one of his regulars I bet he would have Rafe Spall as Pym


He could probably get his dad Timothy Spall as Egghead

this is just personal preference along with my NPH choice since I love him so much.. but how about Aaron Paul (Jesse from Breaking Bad) as Pym? I'd love it cause I love Aaron Paul.. but I think he could do it.. plus he's probably not a 'big budget' actor as far as Hollywood standards go.

Aaron Paul was asked about superhero movie roles in an interview and said if he was going to do one he would like to play a supervillain.

Having seen Paul voice a villain in the tron cartoon I think he would make a good Mirror Master in a Flash movie.

oh cool, had no idea he'd been asked before. I think he probably sees himself as a villain type but I can see him as a hero also.. I'd just love to see him in the MCU or the DC Universe (if they ever get that together haha) He's on my list of underrated acting talent as well as Cillian Murphy (damn I love him!)

story: flashback 20 years. teenaged child prodigy henry pym. setting some kind of lab (maybe at a university - maybe a government thinktank situation). short demonstrations of how astronomically smart and unconventional hank is. brief introduction of Maria; a fellow prodigy who is deeply in love with a seemingly oblivious Pym. very brief background appearance of slightly older rival Elias Starr; obviously envious of everything Pym has.

transition to the discovery of pym particles. brief man in the ant-hill scene. brief montage of Pym acting as Ant-Man; always in behind the scenes ways/mainly as a detective (being a pacifist by nature). made evident by these scenes is that he had finally reciprocated with Maria. she's shown repairing his costume and in a lab assistant role. brief reintroduction of Elias.

tragedy. explosion. Maria's dead. Elias in the background. Hank shown going in a rage. falling into deep despair. last shot before the title is him boxing up the Ant-Man costume.

continued below...

we meet adult Pym working out of a private lab. he works for the Van Dyne corporation. initial scene is a visit from Vernon Van Dyne w/ his daughter in tow. Pym's withdrawn and clearly bored with straight science. Janet finds some way to get rid of her father. short, more personal, conversation with Pym; attempting to get him to open up by mentioning Maria.

segue to Elias Star and Monica Rappaccini at some fancy restaraunt. we learn that Elias, a complete sociopath, also works for Van Dyne but has been behind several information leaks. Monica represents Advanced Idea Mechanics. she specializes in biotoxins. Elias is looking for a better job and sees A.I.M as the way to get it. Monica shows him the specs for a game changing weapon. they need something Pym is working on to complete it.

they arrange for someone with no connection to Elias or A.I.M to break into Pym's private lab. that individual, Scott Lang, finds what he's looking for and only escapes after discovering the Ant-man costume.

Pym finds his lab ransacked. just at that moment, Janet shows up. with her is Nick Fury. they explain that they've been monitoring his activities and research; as well as A.I.M. Janet, on top of being a wealthy socialite, is also revealed to be a trainee agent (all information gathering). Pym resents their involvement. they task him with retrieving his equipment (while not stated, Fury considers to be a test). they provide him details on A.I.M and the recently released ex-con/pawn who burglarized his lab.

Pym goes hunting. Jan follows.

Lang delivers the package. they, of course, attempt to kill him; as payment. Scott is believed to be dead and a fugitive.

Pym tracks Lang down. short Ant-Man vs Ant-Pawn fight. Scott briefly explains his situation. Pym, Jan, and Scott all head to one of A.I.M's headquarters to save the day.

they all fight some interesting looking AIM mercs. Pym has it out with Elias Starr (who lets him know that Maria died in a bomb blast meant for Hank). Monica Rappaccini and Janet have one of the most vicious fights in cinema history. Scott works his way through the facility to find the antidote he needs to save his daughter's life (Monica infected her with some kind of slow-acting death virus or something). he briefly encounters George Tarleton. the latter thanks him for (unexpectedly) also stealing the ant-man costume. he thinks that he's been able to reverse engineer pym particles. he injects himself and it ends badly (setting up M.O.D.O.K).

yadda yadda Scott gives the ant-man costume back, thanks Pym, and tells him that he has an interview at Stark Industries. Fury, Janet, and Hank have a sit down; discussing their future. it's suggested that Jan will get the Wasp upgrade (Pym shows her the designs he had for Maria becoming his superhero partner). Fury tells him that the Avengers Initiative could use Ant-Man as their eyes and ears. Pym says that he'll consider the offer but that he might want to think "bigger." *thumbing a vial marked Giant-Man*

The geek in me wants to see Simon Pegg brought in by his ol' buddy Edgar to play Pym; granted, it's a little left of field in favour of a more 'conventional' choice but Pegg's a fantastic actor [you can tell that I re-watched Hot Fuzz last night, eh?].

Although saying that, Pegg's gone on record to say that he'd actually prefer to play the villain.
