Yeah... hug the Doombot. Great idea. Just one more example of Hank Pym's lack of personal boundaries.



Talking to his dead wife. God help me, this is one of the most unsettling things I've seen in a comic book.



Hank Pym's tried-and-true method for containing godlike beings such as Korvac -- a flying tackle of Korvac's slightly-built girlfriend, resulting in Korvac freaking out and blasting Iron Man through a wall. Good job, Hank! High five!

It appears to be confirmed: Paul Rudd has been cast as Hank Pym in the Ant-Man movie. Since I only know Rudd as Josh from Clueless, I am fairly neutral about this news, but of course I'm hopeful that he will be able to play Hank in all his dorky, and utterly bizarre, glory.



AFAIK neither Janet nor Scott Lang have been cast yet.

Here's my theory about how the MCU is going to go, based on what movies have been greenlit, and what little we know about them:

1. Guardians of the Galaxy is set for an August 2014 release. I think it's pretty obviously going to be Avengers 3, Part 1 -- this is the movie that's really going to set up Thanos for the third Avengers flick.

2. Avengers: Age of Ultron is set for May 2015. Surprise surprise who the main baddie is. The studios keep saying that Hank isn't connected to Ultron in this continuity but I think that's a red herring. They also swore up and down Paul Rudd wasn't going to be Hank, and look what happened.

3. Ant-Man is set for July 2015. Interestingly, the movie's release was moved up a few months from November despite the fact they didn't even have the lead actor until like this week. This suggests to me that Ant-Man is meant to ride the wave of excitement that Avengers: Age of Ultron is going to generate.

4. The next property that seems to have the most momentum is Doctor Strange. That's the one Feige keeps bringing up, anyway. There also seem to be tentative plans for a Black Panther movie and one starring a Marvel heroine (Black Widow seems to be the most likely candidate).

5. Avengers 3, which might be the untitled project with a 2017 release date (just a guess based on the amount of time between Avengers 1 and 2) is going have Thanos as the baddie with, presumably, a modified Infinity Gauntlet story.

6. With the Blade rights have reverted back to Marvel, and the success of the previous Blade trilogy, I'd be surprised if Marvel didn't reboot that franchise as they did with Ghost Rider.

That being said, after Loki, Thanos, and Ultron, the next most iconic Avengers villain would probably be Kang the Conqueror, but putting him onscreen will probably pose a bit of a challenge, just because of his time travel schtick. You could do a Korvac saga with little problem and hell, we've already got the Collector onscreen, so just cast a Carina and go for it.

Why is Hank nuzzling Tony's neck in this picture?

I get that Hank is just supposed to be standing in front of him, but Hank's face is clearly in the shadow cast by Tony's head. The only way that's possible is if Hank is gently stroking the side of Tony's faceplate with his cheek. Is this one of Hank's peccadillos the Avengers have just learned to deal with? "Oh, there's Hank, rubbing himself on people again."

It says something that the anthropomorphic cow is not the most questionable thing about this image. Also, Tony's Living Armor that went all bad boyfriend on him was infected by Ultron tech. Ultron's mind is in turn based on Hank's brain engrams. Taking that to its logical conclusion, does that mean that Hank Pym has a dark, repressed obsession with Tony Stark?!

Hank and Jan's house. Why the fuck do they have a giant framed picture of Reed Richards on the wall?

Would it be weird if Hank started dating the guy his ex-wife left him for? Yeah? Oh. Nevermind.

Photobucket

Oh. Ooooooooh.

So I finished reading the three-issue Ant-Man & Wasp series, along with the Irredeemable Ant-Man series (which intro'd Eric O'Grady, Ant-Man #3) and I am full of squee.

More Ant-Man & Wasp! )

And Tigra's skrullkitten! )
