I'm hoping it's Scott Lang's Ant Man and not Hank Pym and Janet. Pym has too many issues that are way too heavy for a Disney owned comic book movie, and it's something i think that is integral to Pym's character , they can't just leave it out like they're doing with Tony Stark's Alcoholism.

They've said it could actually be both, but there's no confirmation either way. The earliest drafts had Pym as Ant-Man in the past, with Lang somehow coming along the suit/powers and teaming up with Pym. I'm not a fan of this idea, but it's almost certainly been rewritten because it was crafted prior to most of the Marvel movies and didn't mesh with the established MCU. Either way, I'm pretty sure they won't include the wife-beating aspect of Pym in the first movie. haha

Also, I'd say they haven't left out Stark's alcoholism. It was a pretty big aspect of Iron Man 2, but, given reports of Stark exhibiting an almost PTSD reaction to the events in The Avengers, I think you could maybe see him back to some of those tendencies in Iron Man 3.

I'm hoping Janet, as Wasp, is in Ant-Man at the very least

I certainly hope so too, but we'll see.


I read somewhere viggo m was attached to this. I agree that we need a black panther film. Vibranium on film will be awesome.

Technically, vibranium has been on film several times now with Cap's shield. haha

So who could we see as Strange? I like Viggo. Someone suggested Johnny Depp, which would be interesting..

I've always liked the Viggo idea. I also wouldn't mind Jim Caviezel or Benedict Cumberbatch. For a more obscure pick, perhaps Jon Hamm.

also, how about liam neeson as strange?

I'd say he's probably too old for what they'll look for...

He's younger than Samuel L Jackson. RDJ is 47 and Doctor Strange has always appeared older than Stark.

If they want to make it a series, it makes it much more difficult to sustain. He'd be around 66 by the time they got around to making a sequel or Avengers sequel in which he might appear.

Dr. Strange is ok, but I'm disappointed that Ant-Man is being moved to Phase 3. Pym and Wasp are too important from an Avengers standpoint to leave out again, IMO, plus they really need more female heroes beyond Widow, even with the Ms. Marvel rumors and who better than Janet.

Definitely. I mean, they were founding members. It would be cool if they at least introduced Pym and Janet in Avengers 2 as a precursor to an Ant-Man movie, but I'm not holding my breath on it.

Rumor is that Marvel wants Joseph Gordon-Levitt for the role:

Wouldn't be the first name that comes to mind, but he certainly wouldn't be an awful choice.

I heard they are looking at Paul Rudd for this
Is this a joke? haha You're thinking of Ant-Man.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is the only name that's really been mentioned/rumored for the role thus far. I don't think we'll even hear anything about casting for this until late 2014 due to the fact that they probably won't announce this, if at all, until Comic Con in July.

He'd be a good fit for the role. As they said in the article, it would take some changes to the script due to age. I understand he can be a bigger box office draw, but I'd almost prefer they go with a younger option. JGL was mentioned before, but it really is a tough role to cast. You need someone with some box office cachet because it's going to take a decent budget and isn't exactly a concept that sells itself. Depp might not be my first choice, but I'd completely understand because it'd be a huge coup for Marvel and a tremendous boost for the movie.

Doc Strange now: They don't have a script and are looking for writers to completely start over.

Kit, of the Hollywood Reporter, is usually correct with his reports. It's also being said that Marvel approached Depp a long, long time ago, but there's nothing to the current rumors.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Marvel is meeting with Mark Andrews (Brave), Nikolai Arcel (writer of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, director of A Royal Affair), Dean Israelite (upcoming Welcome to Yesterday), and Jonathan Levine (Warm Bodies, 50/50) about directing the movie.

They supposedly want the writers to work with the director or a director who can also write, with Kung Fu Panda writers Jon Aibel and Glenn Berger in the mix for now.

Rumors are that Mads Mikkelsen could be up for a role in this, possibly as Doctor Strange himself.
