Selvig mentioned Banner and Pym.

When Janes equipment is taken by Shield he mentions Pym in regards to his friend that he was going to email that had had previous "experience" with Shield and Banner in regards to a scientist he knew "this scientist... a pioneer in gamma radiation".

Loving that outfit, I hope they keep that one for the film.

I have every confidence in Marvel Studios at this point, honestly....

I'm pretty sure they'll make some modifications to it if that's the suit they go with, and that's what I want. Nothing in that vid should be finalized, including the suit. Needs work.

I want Ant-Man to incorporate more of the ant symbol on his costume than what we saw in the clip.

Hey sam, its me again. Take a look at this list of every way the Iron Man 1 novelization was different than the film, some of them pretty substantial:

To say "novelization" and "confirms" in the same sentence doesn't do your theory much justice.

I don't have any particular desire for this. So far in the MCU there's not a lot of themed heroes. And Captain America's is explained thoroughly.

I don't think he needs a ant symbol like spider-man with his spider the tradional particle symbol on ant-man's chest is just fine.

I would like to see the final suit made from a different material as the test footage suit material looks a bit cheap (which being in a test footage scene means it probably was).

Okay, how's this: the IM3 novel, the IMDB page, the trailers themselves, the reports from people who claim to have seen the early screenings (their leaks backed up days later by new footage from all the new trailers and clips we've been receiving, btw), the set reports, and everything else "confirm" that Stephanie Szostak is *not* playing Janet Van Dyne, but Ellen Brandt.

Yeah, I mean, unless the suit is meant to be displayed in some sort of way, I find it unlikely that Marvel will see a reason to put a symbol on the suit. It will be interesting, actually, to see how they incorporate the name. I don't think either Pym or Lang will be coming up with it himself.

I still hate myself for listening to LokiD and getting my hopes up for Jan this early hahaha. But I do feel pretty confident that we'll see Jan and Hank before their solo movie so there's always that.

You live and learn =)

Speaking of LokiD, I haven't seen him around in a while. Maybe he's posting outlandishly long and outlandish speculation in threads to which I'm not subscribed... Justice League, perhaps? Man of Steel?

beats me lol. I'm not talking bad about him, he's a good guy and a solid poster. I do believe he has a source but he and the source jumped the gun on what sliver of info they had. No harm, no foul in my book. Hope he stays around.

I think the name could be much the same way they came up with the name "Iron Man" in the films. He was just dubbed that by the public. Doesn't matter if Shellhead's armour wasn't strictly made of iron - it's also more symbolic both of a metal man and also someone who is very strong - a man of iron - eg Ironman Triathlon.

Although he may communicate with ants, the name Ant-Man could also be symbolic. And as for the actual symbol on Ant-Man's suit, well it's not like the spider symbol on Spider-Man. It's actually much more subtle even on the classic costume. They could easily incorporate that without it looking silly.

Makes sense about the public/media dubbing him that... It could be a character moment to show him react to it differently than one would react to being dubbed Iron Man. But that's what I mean--if he already has a suit before he's dubbed Ant-Man or has any public persona, why would he have a symbol on his suit in the first place?

I could see Janet coming up with it in a design for his suit, maybe? Given her career and all.

Well like I said, it's not a blatant symbol like Spider-Man's spider, so it might not necessarily even be a symbol but just design elements or even straps and something else in the middle.

All the symbol on the classic costume is really is just a circle with a Y going through it - it doesn't even look like an ant, so it's perfectly understandable how it could precede him being named Ant-Man.

Here's the symbol shown on the A:EMH costume (which is based on the classic):



See, that could easily just be a company logo (if he found an old jumpsuit) or could just be design elements. It's not anything that explicit and certainly not immediately identifiable as an ant (which I've never though it looked like anyway).

^He doesn't mention Pym by name. He mentions a colleague that has had dealings with SHIELD. Fiege said they left the name out because it felt like too much, especially after just basically name-dropping Banner.

depending on who they use, Ant-Man might be purposely avoiding the press and/or public. but otherwise, the name might come simply from ants preceeding and a few remaining after his appearances. i could even imagine him tipping off police by having the insects form words.
