Its been a crazy year with many great movies coming out including Marvel's two masterpieces Captain America and [Guardians of the Galaxy](movie:424073). Its time now though to start looking into what 2015 has in store for us and its a lot actually. Many might have Avengers 2 come to mind but they might be forgetting one important movie that's also coming from Marvel. That movie is [Ant-Man](movie:9048) starring Michael Douglas as Hank Pym and Paul Rudd as Scott Lang who are both Ant-Man at certain points. I believe this movie might be just as important as [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035) will be going forth into Phase 3 of the MCU.
I believe Michael Douglas will be our connecting tissue between the past in the days of S.H.I.E.L.D along side Peggy Carter and Howard Stark. The movie might give us flashbacks at how S.H.I.E.L.D came to fruition, the idea of Ultron, and maybe an Avengers initiative in the past and its failure? The ideas are endless as to what we might see from the past. That being said Paul Rudd could be tying things up for the present but also the future of the MCU and here's how.
Paul Rudd is going to be playing Scott Lang a thief and also the person after Hank Pym to don the suit of Ant Man. Its also been said that this movie will be a big heist film where Scott Lang and Hank Pym must pull off a heist to save the world. What could this mean? Might we be seeing them try to take an Infinity Stone from the wrong hands or could it be a weapon from Yellowjacket who will also be in the film. Yellowjacket is the name of Hank Pym's former protege Darren Cross who goes on to form CTE (Cross Technology Enterprises). In the comics Scott Lang has an ill daughter who needs the help of a doctor being held prisoner by Cross so this might be a reason for him needing the suit. Then on the other side of things Cross might have one of Pym's technology that might be the end of the world in the wrong hands. This means this big heist is very crucial for both of them including the world. I also think once all this is done with we will see post credits scene with one very special guest.
If all points to Civil War at the end of Phase two then Ant-Man will be the final movie we get before things hit the fan for our heroes. I'm thinking Tony Stark will come to Hank Pym for help in joining his team to getting the Superhero registration going. Tony will have had to have stumbled upon Hank Pym in the files he goes through in Avengers 2 if Hank Pym does turn out to be the man behind the idea. It be a pretty great moment to see two of the smartest men in the MCU team up. There's also one more important thing we got to see in one of the pictures that were released from Ant-Man that highlight a factor that might be crucial.
The Pingo Doce soda from The Incredible Hulk movie we got years ago and now the question is could this just be an easter egg or something far bigger? If this is paving towards something bigger i might have an idea and it could involve a pretty big character we haven't seen in a while. I'm already guessing that Tony is going to go after Hank Pym to recruit him into his new team but Tony will need to have a powerful government leader by his side. The person Stark might be looking to side with is none other than......
I'm talking General Thunderbolt Ross being at the side of Tony during this whole Civil War movement the MCU look to head into. I know we've already seen General Ross before in The Incredible Hulk and he might be recast but i hope we see him again. This idea is expanded more in article from Starlog which you can find here . I strongly believe we need a better connection for the Hulk in the MCU and this might just be the way to bring his universe closer. I also think Thunderbolt's character has great potential going forth into the MCU universe as he is also The Red Hulk and the founder of the Thunderbolts(basically the Suicide Squad from Marvel)
I know I'm going on a long shot with all this but just some theories and speculation at just how much potential Ant-Man has to expand the MCU even more!
