Default Hank Pym

Seeing as we haven't seen him in the movies yet who would you cast?

Sean Maher would make a great Hank Pym IMO.


what do you think

Nathan Fillion's the man for the job. Specially if ANT-MAN gets pushed back to Phase III & Whedon decides to introduce Pym in Avengers 2. Whedon's known for bringing in his own people (Poitier) & Fillion's like a brother to the guy. I've wanted Fillion for Pym since 2007 when I heard an Avengers franchise was in the works. His career as an actor has basically been an exercise in how to be geeky whilst badass.

i say give hank a cameo in Cap 2 as S.H.I.E.L.D.'S tech guy. he could be like Q from the bond films, have him out fit cap for his mission. a nice bit would be cap picking up the ant-man helmet and asking what it does. Hank would show him by having the ants spell "hello Steve" on the table.

I'm guessing you didn't see his recent statement where he said he wasn't interested in playing Ant-Man.

I could see Martin Freeman in that role. Idk why, but somehow a Brit works best for Pym. At least in my head.

^ Hmmm, I could see Freeman doing a pretty good job actually.

I like the idea of him being a scientist in Cap 2 as well. That would be a nice, natural way to bring him into the fold.

Fillion would be my first choice no doubt, but he's not interested.

****, I like that call. And make him a Brit, instead of trying to Americanize him. Not all the Marvel heroes have to be from New York City.

Fillion saying he's not interested in playing Pym is even more of a reason for me to remain hopeful about his casting. Christian Bale & Thomas Jane said they weren't interested in Bruce Wayne or Frank Castle several times before being cast. Same goes for Edward Norton & Mickey Rourke (regarding both Marv & Whiplash).

Lee Pace has worked his way up to be my favouite choice for Hank Pym.

Johnny Lee Miller has also been an actor I wouldn't mind in the roll.

I never really saw Nathan Fillion as Hank Pym to be honest before he said he didn't want to play the character.

Not sure if people want him as they are a fan of his or Whedons or they want to see him as a live action superhero because I never got a Pym vibe about him. Fillion would make a much better live action Hal Jordan.

Jason Bateman I could see as perhaps Scott Lang or Eric O'Grady.

Im liking the idea of him as Pym. He wont be the best actor in the world, but Im sure he can pull the role perfectly if he takes it seriously, like the rest of the avengers cast has done.

so its not a big deal.

Nathan Fillion just doesn't have the smart guy feel to him. He is a leader and a smart ass but i just dont seeing him as a tech guy or a scientist.

Not really familiar with Hank Pym. All I know is that he hit Janet. Aside from being smart, what are his other personality traits?

He's really stoic. He considers himself to be more of a scientist than a super hero and is only really urged to be a super hero when there's a crisis scenario where he can be of help. He is uncomfortable with violence and danger. He's bi-polar and often forgets to medicate himself when he's under stress. He suffers from anxiety and feelings of inadequacy, and has a bad habit of addling himself with feelings of guilt over every bad thing that's ever happened that he was even remotely involved in.

In the comics, most of that stuff came to a head in two separate psychotic episodes in as many years (in-universe), the later involving the infamous wife-punching (as well as attempting to kill a super villain who was surrendering and letting a killer robot loose on Avengers Mansion in a deluded Munchausen-By-Proxy scheme to prove that he's a hero, but people tend to forget that part). After that his marriage fell apart, he left the team, became a homeless drunk for a while, then sought psychiatric treatment, cleaned himself up, returned to the team to serve as mission control for the West Coast Avengers, and slowly reconciled his relationship with Janet as he put his life back together.

But that wouldn't happen yet in the movies obviously, so in the film canon it'd probably boil down to "shy idealistic intellectual struggling with mental illness."

He likes his people, but he doesn't like casting them as characters that are like their previous ones. He liked to take use of their versatility as actors. Like, when Amy Acker, who played Fred, appeared in Dollhouse, her character was as un-Fred as possible. While Wasp isn't especially Fred like, there's enough of a similarity that I doubt Joss would feel inclined toward that casting.

And SMG seems to want to avoid doing things even a little like Buffy to avoid typecasting, which I can respect. So, any super-hero like role would probably be out.

Thanks a lot for that man. Really appreciate all that info. Question about his mental illness, did he have that illness when Stan Lee was handlint him or was it just a specific writer who gave him that? Did he and Janet really have a bad relationship from the start or was it just ruined by a specific writer? Cause I really dont know if being a bipolar guy is essential to the character. The only thing Ive read of Pym is the Thor Mighty Avenge. Guest appearance by Langridge and Samnee. He seems to be wholesome and well adjusted person there and he and Janet gets along well in that comic.
