well if Marvel was going to talk him out of anything, it'd be using the flashback technique. but i do think Wright will establish Pym as somone who was active as a superhero sometime inbetween Cap and the emergence of the Hulk.

I wouldn't mind if Pym was ant-man before the hulk started running around because that is only a few years ago in the MCU but I wouldn't want to see him as only being active decades ago.

For real! He can't make Hank a 'has been' hero to facilitate his love for Lang. That would piss off a number of folk, me included.

* For the record, with the absence of Reed Richards in the MCU, Hank needs to be put out there as the absolute, smartest scientific mind in the world. Yes, even smarter than Tony Stark and Bruce Banner.

I wouldn't mind seeing Hank replace Reed as the resident big brain in the Marvel Cinematic Universe seeing as they can't use Reed.

Hank in the comics is smarter that Bruce I think and smarter than Tony in a number of different scientific disciplines.

sales mode: but what if he were active as a supehero while in his teens? and what if the Ant-Man movie just basically showed him getting back into the game, as an adult? given the nature of Pym's earliest adventures (tales to astonish era), he didn't need to be a grown man. originally, he was more of a detective; using his brain and the scientific method to solve crimes. it's not that big a tweak to just have him be Peter Parker age and an active (but obviously covert) costumed hero. given his status as a prodigy, he could concievably have more time to lead a dual life than your average high schooler.

if they want to allude to Maria, they could have her be the reason he gave it up a) because she was dominating his time b) because he didn't want to endanger her or c) because she was 'Gwen Stacy'd' by one of his enemies. either way, it allows for Pym to be used as a superhero in Ant-Man or one of the Avengers movie; while not getting in the way of Wright's ideas.

And why would that matter in the slightest? Actual comic book fans are a tiny enough segment as to be irrelevant to movie success/failure, in general, and Hank Pym fans are a tiny segment of said tiny segment of the populace. If pissing off the hardcore Hank Pym fans allows for a movie that resonates and appeals to the GA, then that is the correct move to do.

You make me die a little on the inside. And frankly, its false. The only time Pym is portrayed as anything but a peer of Tony Stark and those in his league, is when the writer randomly decides to try and have Pym make goes at competing with Reed, despite no rational reason for that being possible.

All these who is smarter or stronger comic debate stuff is all subjective anyway. It depends on the writer and characters popularity.

Characters like Reed Richards and Tony Stark are more popular than Hank Pym. Those characters get more focus in the comics so obviously are portrayed smarter because they have more issues and more spotlight.

I wouldn't a teen prodigy Pym but it doesn't sound like that's where they are going with the character.

Its not subjective if you go by their actual in-comic feats, and then look to see what their consistent portrayal is. Which in the case of Reed Richards, is "my mind is a cosmic force," in a way no other Earthbound genius save Doom equals.

I agree with Reed being the smartest but for rankings of the other characters its usually up to who is writing the character and in what book. Writers are not always consistent. Many superheroes powers or intellect are written to serve the plot.

No, they aren't consistent, but there's usually a rough hierarchy.

In a league of their own: Reed, Doom.

Top tier: Stark, Pym, sometimes Banner

Lesser, but still high quality: T'Challa, Beast, sometimes Banner

Everyone else.

Peter should technically be lesser tier, even though they don't show it a lot in the comics.

welcome to my life whenever I see a new post in the Ultron thread lol

with all the age of ultron crap going on, and all the alternate timelines, with gotg maybe being set in the future, I'd be willing to bet there are some time travel stuff going on in the MCU, maybe even alternate timelines.

What if maybe the ant-man movie covers that? Pym learns of time travel with the pym particles, and ultron learns it, his consciousness becomes multiversal, then we get some type of age of ultron.

Idk, it seems like in marvel we are getting a sort of revamp of Pym. Maybe it'll filter over into the MCU as well

I'd say pretty shortly after Edgar Wright/Marvel casts him... Wright is still working on The World's End, so maybe fall/winter?

As for filming, there were early (and inaccurate) reports that it would be shot in London right after Thor 2 wrapped, but now that GOTG is shooting there later this summer and Avengers 2 is shooting there early next year, I would say maybe summer 2014 at the earliest.

Feige said they will start casting the end of this year so I imagine we might hear some names around October, November or December time.

Once Edgar has done press for The World's End I imagine he will sit down with Joe Cornish and Kevin Feige for a final draft of the script. After that they will probably prep for the film, do castings and shoot sometime next year in either the UK or the U.S.

Hank Pym's character is so much more interesting than like 80% of the characters written in Marvel and DC to me.

Actually, depending on the actress they cast and her performance, but I could really see Janet getting much more media attention out of this. She could easily become Marvel's flagship female hero.

We don't even know if Wasp is going to be in the movie. Joe and Edgar have made no mention of her so far.

I really hope she is in the film and they don't do something lame like make Wasp Cassie Lang

Does this movie hold the record for 'longest pre-production ever'?
