Today, in Hall H, there were some huge announcements about the 2015 Ant-Man film, which has gone through many changes the past year. Tons of new info about the movie was unleashed upon the masses inside of Hall H which gave fans a look into what this film will be about and who's filling in those roles.

The two newest additions to the cast of Ant-Man are Evangeline Lily and Corey Stoll. Lily will be playing Hope Van Dyne, the daughter of Hank Pym, played by Michael Douglas, and Corey Stoll will be playing Darren Cross AKA Yellow Jacket, the villain of the film.

Within the film, Pym (Douglas) will be passing the suit and his research to Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and the story is "the story of heist," which Pym's partner, played by Stoll, will be involved in.

Comic Vine's Impressions: Ant-Man fans will know that just from the character's alone, Marvel is digging deep into the Ant-Man wheelhouse and it seems they are changing things up quite a bit. However, it could be that the original Yellow Jacket/Wasp saga, that fans are familiar with, may have happened in the past or Marvel may just pass up the Hank Pym losing his mind and abusing his wife story entirely. The new Yellow Jacket will have been a partner of Pym, so it's a good guess all his tech will be stolen from Pym.

The strange thing for fans is knowing that Avengers 2 comes out two months BEFORE Ant-Man, and because Pym created Ultron, in the comics, it's hard for fans to speculate how these two are going to affect each other. We'll all have to wait and see.

Filming begins in August.
