Wasn't eva longoria and another male actor confirmed as ant man and wasp for the next avenger film? If so an ant-man film should be underway now...

An Ant-Man movie would be awesome, but if they want to someday add him to the cinematic Avengers lineup, they should go the Ultimates route and have him invent his Giant-Man formula.

I love Edgar Wright's work(Scott Pilgrim, Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, & Attack the Block), but not sure if an Ant-Man movie would translate well on film. I would like Ant-Man and Wasp in the Avengers sequel though. Now, can we get the Rock to play Luke Cage?

I'd have to pass on Rocky - Michael Jai White, perhaps? also, he may not have the acting chops for it, but Ray Park as Danny Rand would be FAB-U-LOUS.

I don't think a hank pym movie would really work. he's never been a character that can hold his own series and the people that read comics are the die hard fans. if you can't get the people who usually jump on board to do so in the old format, chances are a big screen adaptation are a bigger gamble than you may expect.

that being said; he does need to be in the avengers. he should have been in avengers. avengers was perfect, i can't even get started how good it was, but it still could have used hank and janet at some capacity. whether he's a scientist tinkering in the background and she's just his girlfriend or something visiting, some sort of intro would've been nice because they are sort of way more important than black widow. look at hawkeye, hawkeye wasn't in any movie beforehand (thor does not count) and he did just fine. didn't need to be heavily established, fit in, missed the fact he was more ultimates as oppose to usual/better hawkeye but he still kicked crazy amounts of ass. that's what should have been done. at one point it seemed like a no-brainer when people were clamoring that nathan fillion, a whedon favorite, was possibly up for the role. add to the fact i read somewhere Morena Baccarin (again, another whedon favorite) was possibly being considered as van dyne it'd make sense. they could definitely pass for those characters, they work with whedon, and it'd be good. that's my two cents and i think it was just a missed opportunity because an ant man movie would be meh because ant man alone is already meh.

There's an Ant-Man costume in the Captain America movie, at the World's Fair scene.

That was the original Human Torch.

Greg Kinnear as Hank Pym. Cast Wasp a little younger, help play into Pym's insecurity.

It'd be nice to see, really. Though like previously mentioned it would take a decent amount of planning to make it good. I'd much rather they just start planning this and get to work on the Dr. Strange movie.

I'm game, I never really found Ant Man slash Giant Man interesting outside wife beater and super villain creator jokes.

It'd be really cool if instead of giving him the usual MO of becoming a superhero out of necessity he becomes a super hero because he wants to especially in this universe with Stark and Banner.

Scrap this and make a Luke Cage/ Iron Fist movie please

Why not have Pym create Ultron in his movie and the Avengers battle him in a future installment?

None of this is new news though.... just continuation of the same news we've heard for a while.

Ant-man movie been in the works for a LONG time. And for those who think it wouldn't work, its meant to be lighthearted and comedic.

What would be great, like some have pointed out, is to have an Ant-man movie that introduces genius Hank Pym, but in Avengers 2 have him come out as Giant Man. If Thanos is the villain in A2, then Giant Man could stand to be the one who saves the day. It would work.

On a tangent side note... that last Hulk film... The Leader? Would like to see that villain thrown in the mix in one of these Marvel movies.

I absolutely can't wait! He's one of my favourite characters and a science-fiction/espionage/comedy would be awesome!

My thoughts: Nathan Fillion and Ultron being made in the post-credits scene.

Then who would Ant Man fight? All I'm saying is that it seems he would be better in a team up movie than solo

Fo sho. The Pyms should have been introduced already in the avengers movie. Widow and barton should have had their own Shield adventures (movie) then be tied into the avengers 2. It would be a huge mistake for marvels studios to dump money into a movie that would be great to see for fans but would be in the red for profits.

Kinda hard to exclude that he beat his wife but other than that go for it. I'd love to see Giant Man since I love him in Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes. But I'd love for him to create Ultron see the introduction of Wasp & eventually Vision down the road & Wonder Man

I'm all for Giant Man and Wasp to be in the Avengers movie, but do either of them really need their own movie...?

Bingo...much like Widow/Hawkeye didn't need one. Also the cast is already huge enough as far as a film goes. It's a miracle that Whedon managed to handle it so well. Aside form adding Ant-Man/Wasp into the Avengers mix this movie could go really wrong, really fast.

Wow, seems like a tall order seeing as the movie will appeal to comic book fans and not the public.....I mean, you try pitching the move to someone, 1st of all his name is ant-man, and his powers are that EPIC, he's no Demi-God with a sweet hammer, billionaire with epic suit, revived war hero with a boss shield, angry green SMASH everything dude. So making him cool HAS to be Marvel's number one priority! The actor would also have to nail because since Ant-Man is already so "small" a hero in the eyes of the public, he'd have to totally blow them away!

Anyways, I watched TA and I believe that Marvel can do it :) Let's Go MARVEL!!

I'll see it just because I love everything Edgar Wright has done but I have no idea how this movie will make any money at all.

I know people want Pym, but I think Wright would be better using Eric O'Grady, considering the framework already established. You do Pym and you'll have to do Wasp, origins, etc. You do Eric, he's already established at SHIELD. Hell, he was probably the Galaga guy! Then it could just be him getting a hold of SHIELD tech and they're free to do whatever they want with the story, plus Wright's style lends itself better to humor. Pym could still be in it as well, as the scientist that creates the tech, and that leaves windows for him to later become Ant-Man or any of his other dozen alter-egos.

Either way though, I'm excited to see what he'll do with the project.

They can easily just write Pym into working at SHIELD. They aren't forced to follow anything.

I'd like to see Hank Pym used. I think it would frankly be a shame not to use him.

I would definately approve an Ant-man movie with The Wasp in it , combining them into the Avengers. It is the timing that will be important. We heard of Thor 2 , Iron Man 3 and possibly many more but I am hoping Marvel get fit this potential movie before the next Avengers.

An ant-man film should have him create the first set of ultrons and use them for good, with the end of the credits scene saying something like " The Avenegrs are a Threat. Hank Pym is a threat" or the other way around. Setting it up for Avenegers 2, they could even connect it to Thanos, maybe Thanos was the reason for Ultrons malfunction. Then Thanos could be the villan for number 3.

I don't think that's a good idea. An Ant-Man Solo movie? I mean, he is a well know character in America but what about the rest of the world? It's much better if they introduce him in some future Avengers movie.

Maybe Wright could be a good director for Ant-Man. He's a great director("Shaun of the dead" "Hot Fuzz") and maybe he will do a good job. Let's wait.
