    I wonder how expensive it was to do that for that scene. Can you imagine 20 years from now the tech will be so good that they will just slap dead movie stars onto new actors bodies o_0

    By that time we will be able to custom build celebs and take them home to live with us. I will have a 1970's era William Katt.

    What kind of Ant-Man poster? You will probably have to order a poster online if you are seeking a certain one.

    It will be like that Futurama episode where Fry has his own personal Lucy Liu-bot haha. I for one welcome the coming age of robosexuals!

    Would have loved to see that original opening realized, give it more of that James Bond/Spy/Heist thriller they were going for.

    Should've been somebody else :up:

    Was just picking today's clothes out. My Greatest American Hero T will do nicely. Might even watch a few episodes later with a smoke.

    You've kinda made my day :D

    It is good, but I don't think it's an entirely accurate representation of Douglas at that age. His face was a bit fuller during that era. His face seems thinner here, more similar to how he is right now having lost a lot of weight. It looks a bit more like someone de-aged the current Michael Douglas as he is now, rather than creating an exact copy of 80s Douglas.

    This is Wall Street Douglas:

    As you can see, he has a bit more weight around his face, as if he's putting on a bit of weight. They just made him slimmer as Pym.

    It's probably closer to his Romancing the Stone look, face-wise, which is why Douglas actually mentioned that film when he said he saw the footage of his younger self, rather than mentioning Wall Street:

    I wouldn't have minded that young Pym had hair more similar to Romancing the Stone though with the blonder highlights.

    Yeah, they were basically going with a current Michael Douglas as he would look decades ago had he been Hank Pym.

    Assuming they make a sequel, I'm sure they will, who do you guys see them using for the villain? I think Whirlwind or Black Ant would work.

    If it could be anywhere near as good as the first one, I'm definitely on board. I just don't see when they'll have time to do it. I think it would be cool to go up against A.I.M. Keep Michael Douglas in the second movie.

    EDIT: Maybe Madame Macabre, but, by all means, I want to see Giant-Man too.

    This is quite simply the best aging effect I've seen on film. Nothing comes close. I realize the technology has improved drastically but for comparision look at how fake these look:

    It'd probably have to be after the Infinity war films.

    Yeah. I agree. What I "think" Marvel will do is take a good long look at which movies seemed to catch on, weigh which will best suit their long term plan, and then decide which will have sequels. They may also do another intro or 2 post IW.

    I'm really curious to see which heroes they might add in the future. Especially since they say they have plans until 2030 something.
