I don't believe we will see Captain America in the Ant Man movie seeing that he crashed the plane in the North Atlantic and not be revived for another 70yrs.  However, the U.S. government starts the S.H.I.E.L.D division with the help of Howard Stark and his weapons, Nick Fury and Agent Carter.  I would imagine Hank Pym follows somewhere there into the project. I believe all of this will be told in some sort of flashback sequence/scene as well as what happened to Janet Van Dyne.  I just hope they do it well and not make half the movie a big flashback and the other half a current events movie.  I know they need to do the flashbacks I just hope they don't break it up into two movies but sprinkle those flashback stories into the movie creatively.

Ok, we're clearly all fan-boys/girls here.  Many of us are longtime Avengers comics fans and therefore big-time Ant-Man/Yellowjacket/Giant Man/Hank Pym fans.  None of us wants to see his origin story changed, or watch credit for Ultron's creation go to Tony Stark.


But we also have to be realistic and come to grips with Marvel/Disney making movies for the masses, not the small percentage who read the comics.  


Look at how the Avengers' origin was rooted more in the Ultimates Comics' universe more so than Avengers Vol 1, #1.  And the GOTG in the movie look very different than the original Guardians.  (My own recollection of the Guardians is from my copy of Avengers Vol 1, #168!)


At any rate, we should be grateful that Marvel makes ANY movies!


That being said, I don't believe Marvel will let Ant-Man bomb.  They learned from Daredevil.  They've become really good at connecting the dots in all their films, and I think there will be some big surprises in Ant-Man.


There's been lots of speculation about what Marvel will do with this film.  Here are my hopes:


Howard Stark and Hank Pym lay down the foundation for the Avengers Initiative; this would satisfy the fan-boys who want Pym to be involved with the Avengers' origin.  Hank, using his Pym particles, becomes one of SHIELD's first super-agents.  Perhaps he and Captain America shared a few missions, or were supposed to until Cap was lost in the plane crash. It would be interesting to see Hank Pym react as he answers a phone and gets the news about Cap... . 


Howard Stark and Hank Pym co-create the AI that eventually becomes Ultron, again satisfying the fan-boys who want to see the robot connected to Pym.  


Hank meets Janet Van Dyne; they become an item.  She learns of his secret, and he encourages her to join SHIELD.  Janet dies on a SHIELD mission, perhaps one involving an early battle with one of Ultron's first iterations.  A crushed Pym decides to shelve the AI experiment as well as his super-agent identity forever.  


I am not too familiar with the Scott Lang Ant-Man, but from what I have read, he steals the Pym particles and Ant-Man uniform from Hank Pym.  


Well, again these are just my speculations.  I'm hoping that even if you think these ideas are stupid, you'll avoid  the mean comments we often see on yahoo and youtube.  I'm just a fellow fan dreaming and trying to have some fun while Marvel keeps us all guessing.

If they make this movie as a connection from the formation of S.H.I.E.L.D. and how we got Nick Fury all the way to the current situation we have then this will be a good movie.  They will probably let us know how Janet Van Dyne-Pym either died or disappeared considering we are going to have her daughter Hope Pym in the movie. They will also let us know how and why Hank Pym and Howard Stark created Ultron but then stopped the project only to have Tony Stark start it up again in the Avengers Age of Ultron. Also they will obviously have to let us know why Hank stopped being Ant-Man and went into hiding for the past 40-50 years or so.

Hey Marvel Studios, please rewrite the upcoming movie Ant-Man. Not to be rude but this may not be a great Marvel Cinematic Universe movie, just being honest. This is how we could spice thing's up.

For the plot, Scott Lang / Ant-Man a con man to Hank Pym discover the Pym Particles and the Ant-Man suit and figures out he was formerly Ant-Man. He then takes the suit technology and becomes a criminal at first, then a hero. As a petty criminal at first he worked with Crossfire / William Cross but then he didn't do a job for him which then Crossfire kidnaps Scott's daughter, Cassie. Scott will then need the aid of his now mentor Hank to stop evil and save his daughter.

What you guys think

Alright guys, I know how you all feel "This is going to be so dumb, I am not going to see it" but I think we all need to give it a chance, after all I didn't think they could do Cap. but it was amazing. So I think we all need to calm it down, and at least wait for the trailer before we cast it out forever.

This movie is a mess, its just terrible. Why can't they just do a normal origin story for Ant-man just like they did for Tony or Cap or Thor? Nobody wants to see characters we've never even heard of before like Hope van Dyne(?) or Scott Lang. Where's Jan? Why isn't Hank put in this movie properly? I don't have anything against changing things in a movie, but also keeping the respected story, and the respected characters. Look at Cap 2 that movie was magnificent, and yes they changed things SHIELD became HYDRA and Batroc the Leaper wasn't exactly a leaper but they also kept the respected original story. Bucky was still the Winter Soldier, and Arnim Zola was still an evil computer. So why don't they do the same for Hank? Ok fine so he doesn't create Ultron anymore, but he is still Ant-Man, he is still the creator of the Pym Particles. And its not like he's a boring character, Hank has issues and is also a genius so why doesn't he have a proper origin story like everyone else? The Captain America movie didn't start with Steve passing the mantel on to Bucky, or Iron Man passing his suit on to Rhodey.


Marvel should really consider cancelling this movie, because people like me won't be watching it.

There are so many great critical comment here about Ant- Man, I just hope Marvel actually reads them. We're gonna be the ones watching the movie after all.

MARVEL... you guys should've named the Antman movie Ant-Man & The Wasp to incorporate more female leads into your movies. You guys could've had the movie be about Hank and Janet trying to find the person behind Wasps fathers death who happens to be an alien which you guys couldve made a kree or some other type of alien to tie in with Guardians and the future MArvel movies. 


It could even be set in the 60s since you guys want to have Pym older. This movie was the perfect chance to bring the REAL Wasp to screen and give Ant-man a chance at redemption.


Rename the movie to Ant-Man & the Wasp and have Janet and Hank be more prominent figures !

@NewYorkMarvel I posted a comment about this months ago with my hopes that Howard Stark and Hank Pym author the Avengers Initiative and co-create Ultron.  I was laughed and ridiculed off the forum!  I'm glad at least one other person on here shares my hopes.  It's my guess that perhaps after losing Cap, they decide to create a peace-keeping program in the form of a robot with A.I.; these robots would replace human soldiers--- but something goes wrong.  The AI takes on a life of its own.  Perhaps there's an early battle with Ultron version 1.0, and Janet dies in the fight.  This would lead to Pym giving up on both the AI project and his Ant-Man identity, and shelving both indefinitely.


I hope Chris Evans as Cap makes a cameo appearance in Ant-Man!

@JusTheMan71 Marvel has never let me down so far, and I don't think they will, they should stick to the plot they made.

@han8pym That's why there introducing new characters. Their banking on the knowledge of people not knowing who the characters are so that they can influence a new generation and believing that the movie their see is actually from and based strictly on the book. More likely that not the target audience the are marketing this films towards most likely 13-25 haven't read the origins of Ant-Man who has been around since the Avengers in the Marvel Premiere #47 (1979).I'm pretty sure they know the fan base is big. In my opinion you yourself are going to see the movie most likely to critic it, and in order to see it your going to have to buy the ticket. In your mind you going to critic the movie in the movie production companies mind your just another person who bought a ticket and must have liked the commercial so much so that you bought a ticket to see their movie

@han8pym are you kiding me ant-man has been around ever since the 60's hes just had different names like yellow jacket and giant man and hank pym. you just probably never read any of the avengers comics.

@Faryonder Their most likely not going to introduce character that to the non comic loving audience hasn't see before in a new movie. In my opinion the have to establish a connection between to uncommon character to a movie plot that has nothing to do with the title name character. If they were to introduce Cable and/or Dr. Strange for example they would most likely have to make a separate movie for each of them. It would make no sense to plop Dr.Strange ina movie without the audience having background knowledge on him.

@submitorperish They have done characters of color... Red Falcon. Which in my opinion would have looked much better if they would have stuck to the traditional red suit and feather that acted liked daggers.

@Th30ne97 @han8pym I get your point man. I am gonna buy the ticket and they obviously don't care what I think. But Hank Pym is my favourite avenger and its so annoying that the Marvel universe still runs on without him. I think I'm gonna cry when Avengers 2 comes out. Although its gonna be amazing, the person who created Ultron isn't even gonna be there and thats kind of sad.

@JusTheMan71 I don't necessarily agree with the way they are taking the story, But I think if they do it right that they could pull it off...
