I mean just thinking of Wilson going toe to toe(verbally) with the RDJ's Stark would be a sight to see
RDj would murder him; personality-wise. since when is Patrick Wilson a quipster? he generally plays somewhat "cardboard" individuals. it's why they chose him for 'Hard Candy.' he's just so friggin normal. Rudd isn't ideal but he generates more excitement than Patrick Wilson; i bet.

Since when is Pym a quipster? Scott Lang is but less so Hank.

of course. but not in the context of "To Steal an Ant-Man." i guess they could have two morose leads. but it sounds like a bad idea. and, like the other poster mentioned, Patrick Wilson does have the look. he's just not exciting. i don't think he has anything new to bring to the character of Hank Pym; nothing to elevate him. ideally, the actor should make Pym entertaining enough that people would be excited to see him in an Avengers movie.

Pym could often be quipster in the comics. Even back in the old Tales To Astonish stories he cracks jokes fighting villains, although he isn't a spider-man level joker Pym is far from a serious character all the time. Pym quipped alot in the West Coast Avengers.

Patrick Wilson was a quipster in the A-Team movie although he was a villain.

So apparently, Rashida Jones is the front runner to play Janet.

Huh, interesting. Going the Ultimate route by having her be ambiguously some other race? I never could tell if she was supposed to be white or asian.

If Rashida is cast as Janet, she would be only the second black woman (although officially mixed since her mother is white and her father is the famed Movie/TV Composer Quincy Jones) to join MCU.

Wow, I would have never in a million years guessed that she is half black. Same with Dwayne Johnson. Would have never guessed that he has a black dad either.

Kevin Feige on Paul Rudd rumours:

Paul Rudd's name is out there for Ant-Man. That would be fun if it's true. I have no idea if it's true.
Well, nothing is true yet. I like Paul Rudd, too.

I didn't know she was half black. But does Rashida look half Asian? I didn't really think so. She kind of reminds me a bit of the young Lauren Holly, as well as a little bit like Autumn Reeser (whom I guess could look slightly mixed too).

Who is the other black women?

Rebecca Hall is part black.

Halle is mixed technically, so not her. We really need to get some Misty Knight up in this *****.

Kerry Washington or Ruth Negga for Misty Knight. Or Monica Rambeau.

Or Carol Danvers or Bobbi Morse.

Want!

Link/source?

If Paul Rudd is Ant-man, they share a ton of screen time and chemistry from other films.

In the Ultimates, she was Asian while Miller was writing it and Hitch was the artist.

She was also a mutant. I'm sure they won't do THAT.

In the book, while they were all casting themselves, Fury cast her as Lucy Lui, in which she made a comment basically saying "Oh yeah, you cast her as me since all Asians look alike".

Around Supreme Power and definitely when Loeb took over, she kinda changed race, at the same time Thor and Scarlet Witch changed their looks and several characters changed their personalities to fit more with 616.

Rashida Jones as Janet, yeah I can see that. Hopefully, this casting doesn't cause certain fans to throw a hissy fit like the Heimdall, Perry White, and new Johnny Storm casting have.

I doubt it because I believe most people think Rashida is white, not realizing that in fact, she's half black. It's kind of like how the Rock is actually half black although he looks more Samoan.
