    I'm okay with there being a "trinity" --- Lang as Ant-Man, Janet as Wasp, and Hank as Giant-Man.

    I'm even okay with Hank and Lang being from separate generations, as the original script intended.

    Or: I'm okay with this movie being solely about Hank as the title character, and Janet as Wasp.

    The two things I am *not* okay with, ever, is for Wasp to be absent from this film, and for the Pyms not to join the Avengers by *at least* TA3. (Prefer at least a cameo in TA2, as the leads for this film should already be cast by then, and shooting should have already started.)

    i can't imagine him feeling personally responsible for Ultron, for some reason.

    I know some people want Nathan Fillion for Pym, but this just hit me the other day. I think Alan Tudyk would be a good choice for Hank.

    I think the trinity of heroes might be overkill of storylines for film 1 (not that it couldn't be done in a smooth way). I'd like to just see the Ant-Man persona and have the Giant Man one be saved for a moment where it would come out of nowhere in like Avengers 3.

    And I don't know why but I just hate the idea of different generations, I almost feel like it doesn't do Hank Pym justice to have him be an older person or not even around in present day.

    Does Ant-Man have more interesting stories than the "To Steal and Ant-Man" storyline? Besides the whole, ya know, creating Ultron thing lol.

    that looks more like Scott than Hank, imo. both actors have said that they aren't interested. but i think a Fillion (Hank) and Tudyk (Lang) team-up would have been cool.

    We don't know. He was planning on it but he had to rework the script since the MCU has come into existence.

    I know I'm going to be flamed for this, but this is what I probably think of Marvel's casting rumor for Hank Pym is going to end up being and I might be right or wrong.

    I know they may not be the best choices to you, but just trying to outside the box since Marvel Studios known for their unexpected casting (Pratt, Evans, Batista, etc.)

    I'd love Jason Segal in anything Marvel, he makes me laugh in everything and is a good actor imo

    he can definitely play a sarcastic jokester, he's a great actor.

    i thought of him after reading some Avengers season one take on ant-man and the wasp. but that guy doesn't look like someone who could carry an entire movie; serviceable on Mad Men, though.

    Pace has been on a lot of fan casting lists for superhero flicks man. I've seen his work and definitely get it, so Marvel or DC need to step up.

    Marvel have been intrested in Pace for a while. He had a couple meetings with them and he auditioned for Star Lord. Pace is on the up, his a versatile actor and his probably reasonably cheap to hire.

    The two actors that had popular fan casting followings and landed the role in DC films are Bale and Cavill.

    thing with Pace is he would fit so many roles, maybe marvel keeps thinking

    "oooo he'd be good as ________ but maybe he'd be better as _______"

    just hire him lol

    i'm all for that. i remember him as the thief from League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. but it really all depends on who they get to play opposite him. and i, for one, hope that Scott is in the first one. i think there's room for multiple characters; makes it stand out from the pack.

    Hat was attacked maliciously and unprovoked by a gang of babies in West Town Park. When that many babies get together they can be like piranha

    Three eyewitnesses testified that if Hat hadn't killed those babies, they'd have killed him!
