Sorry just saw this...   The simplest answer is a director does a lot more than tell the actors what to do. On a movie of this scope the director is working for a year or more before they even start s

It's "Ant-Man". Two words, one hyphen, and the 'M' is capitalized. COME ON YOU GUYS.

I'm ALWAYS on board for more Hawkeye. The less ultimate and more 616 they make him the better.

^The concept reel for Marvels filmverse Ant-Man.

 

^Ant-Man cartoony coolness.

 

If you're unfamiliar with the character those two short vids give you all the pieces to what makes the character... except for wife-beating. That's not in them, but sadly rage issues, abuse and alcohol are parts to Ant-Man too.

Yeah, near as I can tell, there's no confirmation. He's been rumored for awhile, but somebody tonight must have aid something because all the outlets are saying "he's in talks".

 

I don't know why the sudden re-scoopage tonight-- possibly somebody had a press release and leaked it early. Or, kind of like when Simon Pegg was "named" one site of merit reported it as fact and everybody followed suit.

Oooh and also I HAVE A COMPLAINT

 

Paul Rudd is 5'9 whereas Hank Pym is easily, like, less than an inch high when he shrinks and can grow at least 12 feet tall when he goes all Giant-Man so what gives Marvel who knows maybe he will have to bulk up / slim down for the role

I hope this winds up like Party Down and Paul Rudd steps away so Adam Scott gets the role instead.

 

I don't see it. Adam Scott is funny, but so is the shape of his head. Dr. Pym and Scott Lang, either of which could be up for grabs here, both clearly have normal-shaped heads.

I have always had crazy amounts of man-love for Paul Rudd. I've loved him even when he's in crappy films. I see what they're going for here-- Robert Downy Jr is in shape, but he didn't have a superhero physique. Chris Evans and Hemsworth, for sure... and yet Iron Man is still the hero.

 

They are going for charisma for body type-- plus it's not like Pym is known for being superbuff. Paul Rudd could easily town, but I think this casting is so in line with Downey, and it makes sense.

 

I also liked the Simon Pegg rumors. Maybe that will turn out true after all as well, with him being Scott Lang.
