Alan Tudyk. He doesn't get nearly enough respect, outside of sci fi.
 
2013-09-10 01:06:10 PM
Nathan Fillion imho would be best.
 
2013-09-10 01:11:21 PM
Which Ant-Man is it? Tudyk wouldn't work as Pym, but would be a great Lang.
 
2013-09-10 01:17:41 PM
Tudyk--he was great in Transformers.

Seriously.  I liked the comic vibe and then unexpected violence.

But then who would they eventually cast as Wonder Man?
 
2013-09-10 01:26:54 PM
Yeah, I thought they were going with the second Ant-Man and not Pym at all.

Nope.

Also, they're going with Pym, the Scientist Supreme on 616.
 
2013-09-10 01:41:03 PM
Tudyk is the best choice there by far. He's even good in I robot.
 
2013-09-10 01:43:06 PM
If there's no Wasp, I'm not interested.

now i'm really confused. why is/was fillion involved in promoting the avengers then? or was whedon planning to cast him but the execs didn't think fillion was famous enough?

In all likelihood, it was fanwank that got out of hand.

None of these guys strike me as the super genius type, except maybe Pegg. What about Rob Lowe?

I thought they scrapped the 616 on the most recent rewrite?

Man, who the hell knows.

When I was first reading comics, they still did the No-Prize, Excelsior! was a thing, What If...? was one of the best comics around and Stan Lee wasn't in every damn Marvel movie.

Given his age, I wonder if he ever kicks the bucket how they'll rope his image into the movies given they plan on taking this thing to 2022

The Fillion thing WAS fan wank according to a panel he was on w/ Tudyk, search NERD HQ on youtube (also, very very good panels, well worth it. and they raised money for charity)


Pegg also posted this on his twitter recently.

Can we PLEASE stop suggesting the cast of Firefly for EVERY comic book or scifi role?

How about Buffy the Vampire Slayer actors? Dollhouse? Cabin in the Woods? Angel? Those ok?

No.

In fact, I insist that Morena Baccarin be cast in every decent comic book and sci-fi movie that gets made.

Wonder Woman: Morena
Star Wars VII - IX, Han and Leia's daughter: Morena Baccarin
Ghost Ice Sharknado IV, "The Hot Chick": Morena Baccarin

There's a strong push for her to be Wasp.

Wasn't it already announced that James Spader would voice Ultron in the next Avengers movie, and people figure he'd be Pym through association?

Whedon said Ultron isn't a Pym creation in Avengers 2 - at this point,  it's looking like Stark will be creating the Ultron AI.

Calling it now: Ultron is JARVIS.

When I see the name Edgar Wright I think Edgar Winter and I'm pretty sure they are not the same.

Nah...JARVIS gets corrupted somehow, hilarity ensues.

Only took two posts for someone to try and shoehorn Nathan Fillion into yet another comic book role he'd be ill-suited for.

/Dr. strange? Fillion
//The entire cast of Fantastic Four? Fillion.
///Hulk? Fillion.
////Black Widow? Fillion.

You're all wrong. The correct answer is Fran Kranz.

Of the five, he'd have the inside track.

Pretty sure his age was the only reason Wright didn't cast him as Scott Pilgrim.

Here's the thing, though: Ant-Man is not going to be Hank Pym in the movies. It's going to be one of the others, hopefully Scott Lang.

Ultron is the big bad guy for Avengers 2, but who's going to create him if the Ant-Man movie is coming after A2? Tony Stark? Maybe, but then you're turning the most popular character in the movie series into a huge failure for creating a self-improving robot that wants to wipe out humanity. And it's also been confirmed that JARVIS is not going to evolve into Ultron. So, try this scenario on for size: James Spader is plays both Hank Pym and Ultron, since the root of Ultron's personality and flawed programing comes from the copy of Hank Pym's own psychologicaly scarred mind. When Hank realizes what he's done, he tries to stop Ultron, but ends up dying. Later on, SHIELD finds all of Pym's other gadgets and theorems, passing the Ant-Man gear to a SHIELD operative. Or, either Scott Lang or the new guy in the comics are both Hank's lab assistants, so they could end up with the gear as well.
