    Which movie....this one? None of those three have been rumored for the Ant-Man movie. Szostak is in IM3; Rudd was offhandedly mentioned for Avengers 2; and O'Dowd is in Thor TDW, most likely playing Dr. Donald Blake, Jane Foster's ex.

    What makes you say "most likely"?

    Don't wanna speak for 'Sam, but if I were to take a guess...

    The fact that he goes on a date with Jane.

    And the fact that she's probably not playing the field right now, so the only men in her life are probably the Asgardian and her ex. But who knows, the writers may want to complicate things and muddy the waters, and make O'Dowd a brand new character. I'm betting they're not, though: keep it simple.

    I liked his character in Gamer.. I think he was more scary and intimidating to me while watching since I had seen a lot of Dexter before I had seen Gamer so that worked in his bad guy advantage haha

    So do you think if Janet dies at some point, Hank will have a big inventory of suits, like Stark does? A couple Ant Man designs, a couple for Giant Man, Wasp, Yellow Jacket, etc etc... Not as detailed as Stark's, but you get the idea. Similar to Batman's various suits as well.

    Why can't he keep one while Jan is alive? If she, being a fashion designer, has a whole wardrobe of clothes and costumes, surely he can keep a few outfits too?

    I don't think Janet would have to die for Hank to come up with more equiment or tech.


    Hank is always coming up with new stuff anyway.

    I think it would be cool if Hank weaponized his super roofies like Scarecrow did with his fear toxin in Batman Begins if he is going to be sneaking around so that he does't have to knock everyone out with his fists.

    Any word on what the Ant-Man "footage" is on the Phase One box set? I'm assuming it's just the leaked test footage, but even then I'd still be excited about seeing that in HD.

    He calls it that, but it sounds suspiciously more like a date rape drug, which is worrying.

    I hadn't heard about this Paul Rudd rumor. I'd be good with it. Rudd makes a good tragic hero. And if they are going the comical route, he'd fit very well.

    But perhaps him hanging out with Chris Evans means he'll show up in TWS? Maybe I'm reaching.

    That's a non-rumour as far as I'm concerned. Being seen talking to the Avengers cast backstage at an awards ceremony,.. quite a leap to make anything of that.

    Ironically, I think he's too small for Pym.

    i don't think he's too small for Lang. i think he's exactly the kind of actor i'd like to see as Lang. it should be someone who can offset Pym's seriousness.

    So I definitely think this movie will be the dark horse of 2015. It has such massive potential. No pun intended.

    Just imagine how different of a cbm this will be, though. A completely different terrain to explore from any cbm before it, the microverse.

    The MCU Phase II preview video in the Phase I box set released today includes snips from the Ant-Man test footage, for those who haven't seen it yet. Still wondering if Ant-Man is hovering in a gray area between Phase II and III; Feige officially called it Phase III, but with it being released in 2015 and with it being attached to this collection, I'm still iffy about just where it fits in to the whole program.

    I was wondering the same thing. They included it in the Phase 2 montage like it was part of the group.

    I still think it's Phase 3--I'm taking Feige's word for it, plus I don't think people are going to want to wait for Ant-Man to be out for a few months first before the Phase Two box set comes out for the holidays in 2015.

    Let's remember that they announced the box set in July, way before the Ant-Man November 2015 release date was announced in October and way, way before Feige confirmed in January that Ant-Man would kick off Phase 3. Coupled with the fact that Wright had shown test footage at Comic-Con just after the box set was announced, there was an expectation/hope that the box set would include some Ant-Man content, and perhaps the Ant-Man release date was still up in the air. I think they set themselves up to have to show some of the Ant-Man footage in the preview, even if it's technically no longer a Phase 2 movie.

    I think it would fit in with Phase 3. It would go well with the Dr Strange film.
