    Odd that Lilly has yet to read a script so close to filming but I'm sure she will soon.

    She may have read the old script, not the new one.

    Probably the case so it's not like she'll be going in blind to entire script.

    So someone else is playing Janet/Wasp or is Janet Hope's mother so Hope would be a second generation Wasp?

    Yeah, I'm thinking that "Hope" is Wasp.

    Because of my lack of knowledge of comic books, I'm going into Ant Man with an open mind.

    Pretty much a guarantee. As soon as Douglas was cast as Pym I knew we weren't getting a young Janet as Wasp.

    Description of the Ant-Man footage from the live blog:
    It's not clear to me whether this is actually part of the script, or just something specially-made for the con.

    So no Janet van Dyne or Hank Pym as Avengers. This 616 history disrespect slippery slope is becoming very dangerous (they are already having to retcon IM3), and is bitterly ironic for a studio which was formed - among other things - to prevent overly revisionist bullcrap in the cinematic medium.

    Marvel Studios has done many good things, but this project has been a disgrace and a disaster.

    Guess what, this ISN'T the 616. These are FILMS, they are under ZERO obligations to follow the comics to the letter. In fact, I'd prefer that they NOT do that because it's boring. If I wanted that, then I'd just read the comics (which I do).

    The MCU has done many things away from the 616 universe so your outrage is a bit late to the party.

    I would've prefered it Lilly was actually playing Janet van Dye instead of "Hope," but its not a big deal.

    I'm divided. I'd prefer Hank and Jan to not be thrown under the bus like what appears to be happening but on the other hand the MCU is a new and separate continuity. I guess I'm about a 6 on the Fanboy Appeasement Chart:

    Happy - - - - - ^ - - - - Enraged

    So Lang is not going to steal the suit? Sounds like Cassie was written out too.

    At least they aren't making janet Into Hank's daughter and love Intrest of Lang

    MCU Is cross between ultimate,616,and new ideas.

    Now if only people would accept that about Fox and Sony too.

    The Zach Snyder DC films are based more on elseworld stories like Superman Earth One
    and Dark Knight returns than mainstream DC books too.

    Happy Lily is not Janet. At least Marvel didnt totally fubar the Hank and Jan relationship. There could now be the possibility of a flashback of them in their early days.

    Yes me also, I only know of the characters from watching the cartoons but I've always liked Ant-Man & Wasp. Good thing I like Douglas, Rudd & Lilly but with the way Marvel is changing things around so much in the first Ant-Man movie this could be their biggest gamble to date next to the Hulk movies.

    cassie could still be sick, and Lang could need the money to save her ...
    he might be trying to steal Pym's suit, when Pym gets him and recruits him to be the next antman

    I'm thinking there will still be a Hank/Janet relationship either in flashback, or at least implied. But I'm also thinking its quite possible that Janet never becomes the Wasp, and that Hope becomes the Wasp instead.

    Reading about the alternate universe Hope, maybe she's jealous that her Dad (Pym) chose Lang to be his successor instead of her?

    I wonder if Edgar directed the footage. He probably did.
