Needs more hanging out in the shower with Ms. Marvel.

I know little about Ant-Man, but that seemed fitting.. shrinking down at will, and just as strong when small as when normal sized.

I have heard that this may be a scene from Iron man 3, as supposedly Ant man shows up either in the post credits or the climax of the movie to give stark a hand;  and as you know,  no one is allowed to lie on the internet, soo....

It's also common internet knowledge that The Joker will be in Dark Knight Rises in scenes filmed before Heath Ledger died!

Never got the love for Ant Man. Always seemed like a second rate superhero. Is this one of those "you love him because it is ironic" things?

That dramatic flip/landing/head bob thing at the beginning of the clip has become a really painful action movie cliche.

You're thinking of Hawkman and Apache Chief. Ant-Man's not the most well known, but he isn't just thrown in for shiats and giggles either.

You guys should go see the movie together so you can amuse yourselves biatching about it, while being oblivious to the fact that you paid 10-15 bucks just to have something to biatch about.

It's kinda nice to see a superhero with personality flaws.

And not toned down, g-rated "He drinks too much and is snarky towards his buddies!" personality flaws like Iron Man, but actual, proper borderline pathological flaws. Ant-Man is a manic depressive reformed wife beater with an inferiority complex, and he's prone to building and unleashing superweapons on his teammates during his less lucid moments. And despite all that he still genuinely tries really, really hard to be a good guy.

I prefer the second Ant-Man, Scott Lang. Average guy tries to do right by his family. Gets into trouble. Gets out of it with the costume. Becomes Hero. Most likable, relatable Avenger ever.

There's actually been three Ant-Men.  The original, as described in the quote you posted (he's also a super-scientist).  Scott Lang, the second Ant-Man (see Decillion's post) and Eric O'Grady who's more of a mercernary/borderline villain type.

Rumor has it Wright was going to work all three characters into his story somehow.

This.
 
2013-03-20 10:49:17 AM  
I wouldn't be surprised if they make this Ant-Man more like Scott Lang than Hank Pym, whose personality and background are a bit too much like Stark's and Banner's. I had assumed that since Wright is doing it, they were actually going with the comedic Eric O'Grady version.

As the Marvel film universe expands and mainstream audiences become more familiar with more characters hopefully we'll see these issues on-screen. Maybe down the road we'll get beyond the villain/hero/antihero lines into the more blurred lines of serious personality and psychological conflicts. We could see heroes being human, holding grudges for trivial reasons and "good" not always being right. As far as Iron Man goes it looks like Tony Stark will be suffering a little PTSD in Iron Man 3 so that may be a start to humanizing him a bit.

We should feel bad about ourselves. There's nothing wrong with that opening sequence in this, or any other action movie. It's perfectly potato.

That's hard to pull off in a two-hour movie.  In comic form you have the time to develop the character, flaws and all, and reach a point of understanding with the audience.  In movie form...guy's just a dick that nobody feels any empathy for.

This is true, its very hard to pull that off in movie form without falling prey to easy writings traps.

Edgar said at ComicCon that this was a test created for the studio to prove that they could make the movie.

Break it down simply for the popcorn chewers (of which I am one).

 Ant-Man = introverted hero, Giant-Man = extroverted Evil.

Wasp is the glamour girl, outwardly confident and strong and funny (fronting a Stark like personality) who is inwardly insecure dependant enabler.

Ultron could represent the cold heated hard driving deceased father figure  (her dad/his scientific mentor who dies in the orgin scenes) who introduced the personality schism into each of them. Pym creates Ultron based on unconcious internal conflict, or a concious replacement to drive him farther.

Vision? Obviously the child figure for them. Maybe a replacement for Ant-Man if he dies heroically at the end of his character arc. Built before he passed, and championed by his widow in the face of other hero's distrust for a cyborg from the creator of Ultron.

If you introduce Ant Man after Avengers 2,  then have him create Ultron in his movie you have a good Villain for Avengers 3, Someone to work with SPOILER Thanos /SPOILER.
That assumes they won't wrap up the big bad in Avengers 2.  I hope Joss goes really dark With an Empire Strikes Back type ending, The Core Avengers assumed dead or incapacitated and Fury just pulls out a file and says "Activate the Reserves"; a perfect chance to expand the lineup.

War Machine,  Wasp, Iron Fist,  Luke Cage, Blade, Ms. Marvel, Hercules,  hell if Marvel unifies all their properties by the time Avengers 3 goes into production they could add Wolverine and other X-Men, Spider Man and the Fantastic Four into the mix, and make the final showdown something that will deserve the term Epic.

Unfortunately for Marvel they do not have film rights for all those products.

1. Hank is in mental duress and he backhands Wasp once and he's a "wife beater" forever. I'm so glad they left that out of A:EMH.

2. Speaking of which, any speculation or rumors as to who might play Ant-Man and Wasp?

Actually, I believe they had a in joke where Wasp beats Ant Man...okay, Ant Man was a Skrull but still.

Plus, is it just Ant Man for this movie or is will Wasp be involved? And, who's going to be the villain?

Hank has one bad month, boom, thrown out of the Avengers, goes to jail and is marked forever.  Reed is a perennial jerkwad and is adored.  Ain't right.
