When Edgar Wright first talked about the project he said he saw it as a legacy story where Hank Pym was in a 60s-Tales-to-Astonish setting as Ant-Man only to eventually retire and have his suit stolen by Scott Lang in the present. i think it is a pretty awesome idea and damn cool casting. This is exactly the kind of idea that will help differentiate some of the superhero movies. Like Mask of Zorro
This made me think. It could be cool if this was a movie set in the 60s with Paul Rudd as young Hank Pym and Michael Douglas a modern day Pym looking back. Not sure if that would work too well without time travel.
