You're right it looks old. The article I read it from was recently posted, but missed where it said that Wright said it a while back.

Ah. I thought so. Yeah. Things have changed a lot since Wright first started on this project. Even he has admitted how he has had to change it up now.

I'm excited for whatever on this but damnit. I want Rashida Jones as Janet van Dyne now. Her and Rudd rock together. If the rumors are true I hope they happen cuz they've got amazing chemistry. Also I've always loved the Wasp. She's a character that progressed very well with the times and as hero.

Holy shit. So... Wow. That just made this very interesting. Scott Lang centered film with Pym. Never thought that would happen.

Wonder if Wright will do his little love letter for Tales to Astonish with this.

Hrmmmm. This just became the most interesting MCU film for me now.

Wow is what I thought too.

Talking about Douglas... Bought the Falling Down DB BD. Needs a new transfer but that film is just very entertaining.

jesus christ. marvel is really not fucking around with these movies anymore, are they? damn. that's some great casting. this along with Redford's casting really makes these movies seem like legitimate films.

So that means no Wasp? So Michael Douglas is Hank Pym. So Paul Rudd is Lang, so Lang will be the one interacting with the greater MCU in the future? My mind is buzzing.

Was just about to ask... what does this mean for Wasp? I mean they could change the storyline...

Assuming there are flashback sequences, they should get Matt Damon to play young Hank Pym.

Someone mentioned that the Wasp could be Pym's daughter. Who knows.

I was thinking that could be an option. Rashida Jones for Hank Pyms daughter... love interest for Lang.

They would have to do something unique, especially if they want to be part of the current MCU.

But Douglas is awesome.

Man... I'm so excited for these new batches of properties to be turned into films. Yea IM, Cap and Thor are cool... but I'm tired of sequels to them already. Although I am still excited for Winter Soldier. Between this and GotG I'm pumped for what's next.

I find this interesting, since it means Pym's active period as a superhero (assuming he was one) would likely have been the 70s, but there's been no reference to superhero activity between Captain America and the creation of the Hulk.

But maybe he was working for SHIELD. Or maybe he was just too small to be noticed.

For sure. I'm fine with the sequels but these new movies are much more exciting. Marvel is getting bolder and bolder. I can't wait for Dr. Strange. Damn that rumor that Mortensen was being thought of for it. That alone got me excited.

I'd be fine with Wasp as Pym's daughter. It's neat how they're changing it up with these characters at times.

Have they really referenced this period in SHIELD history at all? Maybe they will use this to fill in the gaps from WWII/Cap/Daddy Stark to now?
