Where is this three week business coming from? Isn't that slated for July 17th? Which was right around TDK and TDKR releases? Or was it moved a week back? POTC 5 is no longer in summer 2015. But if my math is correct, that would be two weeks from July 31st.

I think it should be a comedy. Something serious enough that can still co-exist with the MCU by having enough drama-filled moments, but I think it should be a "serious" comedy, with plenty of overthetop moments. Probably the most difficult character that Marvel will have to tackle. Wright has his hands full.

That'd be great if true. He was the best part of the Star Wars prequels. Lol

Definitely for Pym? Or for Lang?

If it's Pym, then at least it means that he isn't that old and a relic of the 1960s as originally planned (when Wright first wrote his script in the 1960s )

As for Lang, I would see him continually making film references for every situation like Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) in NCIS, since Scott is definitely meant to be a major film buff in the comics.

that would be cool. part of me wants Jan to be a deep cover agent for S.H.I.E.L.D; to make any transition into the Avengers easier. i just figure that they'd have someone keep tabs on someone who could invent stealth equipment (like the ant-man suit). she'd still present as Pym's image conscious girlfriend, though.

seems more like a Pym cast. he seems to be the internet favorite; leading me to believe that this is where the rumor came from.

what i meant to say is that Waid's latest retelling of Pym's origin left little room for her.

Unless there's been a complete overhaul in the rewrites, I'd bet on it being Lang, since he's always been portrayed in the interviews and rumormills as the actual Ant-Man.

Wright said there would be flashbacks to the 60s of Pym in action then, so they would have to cast two Pyms, one young and one old.

That's assuming that Pym is still alive in modern times. I've heard at least one version of the script says that Pym has long since passed away, so the only Pym in the movie would be the flashback one.

I don't want any flashback Pym. I realise Edgar Wright originally wrote his script in the 1960s, so when Pym was the original Ant-Man, it wouldn't have been very long ago at all. But he's been putting it off all these decades in favour of other movies that the 1960s isn't that recent anymore. He needs to definitely update things so Pym was only a few years ago in the 2000s.

Edgar said Pym and Lang team up and Pym so I don't think Pym is dead when Lang becomes Ant-Man . Its possible Edgar might have Pym die at the end of the movie although I hope he doesn't.

Feige says they draw from across the ant-man stories and with Edgar's spy concept I could see his Ant-Man basically being Irredeemable Ant-Man with Lang instead of O'Grady.

If he was active during the 60's that'd mean he'd be in his late 60's or 70's today. That's friggin old. I don't mind a middle aged Pym but a senior citizen? Too old.

I don't really see the point of having Henry Pym active in the 1960's either given that it was only ever going to be for the first ten minutes of the movie so probably only a montage or a couple of scenes similar to the opening flashback scenes of The World's End.

Its not like X-Men First Class or X-Men Days Of Future Past in which the period setting is important.

You could set the first early Ant-Man scenes with a young scientist Pym in the 1980's if he wants to use the Cold War stuff and then still have him physically active in the modern era.

Pym could even be in the 90s. He could wear plaid shirts with huge squares and we could hear music from Dawson's Creek in the background.

He could've taken part in the Silicon Valley scene of the 80's or tech explosion of the 90's in the Pacific Northwest.

I just want him in long enough to show he created the persona but moved on to bigger things.
