Barring that: no explanation at all. Guess Coulson is just a moron, or he's just waiting for a chance to tap that ass.

Huh? Skye is an absolute master with computers, and SHIELD is willing to put up with her antics because they recognize that she is far too valuable and gifted to let fall in the hands of an enemy. Probably on her way to being one of the best(if not THE best) hackers in SHIELD. Remember how Hawkeye took down the Helicarrier with an arrow that hijacked the systems in Avengers? That could be Skye one day, and all she'd need to do it with is a computer.

Maybe she'll use Instagram to take down HYDRA.

Yes, because the value of a specialist in an intelligence agency is based on their ability to bring down a criminal organization entirely by themselves.

Also there's clearly a lot more to being a computer specialist than using instagram.

When I watch AOS I feel like the mother of an ugly baby. I know I'm supposed to love it but damn if I can look it in the face without wincing. The only hope is that it's a Neville Longbottom that will blossom into a hottie in its second season. Sadly it looks more like a Ron Weasley, doomed to grow even homelier as it ages.


That's the perfect analogy. And yeah, Ron did look more homely with age. Poor Hermoine.

WHAAAA!

Oh NO you did not just diss my ginger-haired man Ron Weasley! He's precious and handsome! Eye of the beholder and all that.

*ahem* So, why are we not speculating about all the awesomeness of seeing Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, and Paul Rudd sharing scenes together in some Avengers movie in the future? Because it HAS to happen… Feige has to make this happen!

If for no one else, me!

I certainly hope Ant-Man shows up in a future Avengers movie now that Rudd has been cast. Would be great if he even cameoed in Avengers 2, since that would be a draw. Marvel would also be able to say that Paul Rudd was in the sequel to one of the biggest blockbusters of all time.

I think we'll see Rudd as Pym in AOU, but he won't suit up as Ant-Man. I've got a feeling they'll use AOU to set up Ant-Man, as the Ant-Man concept is so far out there for the general audience that they'll need AOU to act as a sort of prequel for it.

^ That scene in Earth's Mightiest Heroes where they take out Strucker was pretty badass too.

We still don't know which Ant-Man Rudd is playing. Could be Pym, could be Lang.

And I don't think audiences need too much exposition on the character: he shrinks. End of story.

The concept of his powers are basic, yes. But the suspension of disbelief that a guy who shrinks can be a super hero alongside of Iron Man and Thor? He's not Spider-Man, the general audience is going to need some priming to make this character a success, hence the casting of a well known name like Rudd. So I'd say AOU is a pretty ripe opportunity to get people invested in Pym (or Lang), and then make them want to see his transition into Ant-Man in the solo film.

That said, I've got full faith in Wright and Rudd. They'll both do great.

I'm more interested in seeing Wasp. I've always found her to be more interesting, and more fun.

And yet Black Widow and Hawkeye managed just fine. Nobody complained about them except echostation (lol)

I don't think it's the suspension of disbelief that a guy who shrinks can be a superhero, it's the suspension of disbelief with having a tiny Disney character size guy on screen at all. His size is an extreme difference to regular humans and 99% of superheroes who themselves vary wildly, like 200 times more extreme than Hulk's size in relation to a normal human. I'd expect the same probems with Giant Man. It'd be the same with a mini-Cap or Giant-Black Widow, not a Hank Pym issue.

But I really want to see Paul Rudd join this Avengers team one day.

This seems somewhat more plausible than LR's previous "scoops." SW and QS working for Strucker, at least initially, would fit in with Whedon's statements that they might oppose the team at first. It would also be a convenient way to introduce them since HYDRA has already been introduced into the MCU. It might also tie into Ultron's creation as well.

I bet the bad guys on AOS are a front for Hydra and the show is just spinning its wheels until Winter Soldier to reveal it.
