We will get TWO Avengers!
Paul Rudd is Scott Lang (Ant-Man) and coming to the Avengers. Evangeline Lily is playing Hope Van Dyne (Wasp). This is the film right before Civil War, so this gets me thinking that we'll see Stark recruiting these to for his Pro-Reg team. I am really excited because I've wanted these two for so long! They were founding members. In the comics and TV show, Iron Man, Wasp (Jan Van Dyne), Hulk, Thor, and Ant-Man (Hank Pym) were the first Avengers. Later it was them who found Captain America and thawed him out. I'm not slamming how the origins were in the MCU. I actually love this new original team. There's always two end credit scenes. In Avengers 2 I'm sure one will be Thanos again. I'm sure the movie will end with the Superhuman Registration Act so the end credit scene would either go to Ant-Man or Spider-Man (Yes, Spidey. In case you haven't heard, Marvel will use him for Civil War and Infinity War Part 1). I'm leaning more towards Ant-Man though, Hank Pym I'm sure will be in that end credit scene.
It's the film before Civil War!
That's not the only reason it's significant. We will have already seen Daredevil on Netflix before this movie comes out! Scott Lang is a thief after all. Maybe on of his heists his crew pulls out because they see Daredevil or something. I think Ant-Man has the potential to get Daredevil in on the big screen. We know that Age of Ultron sets of the SRA, but Ant-Man could be the movie that supports the Pro-Reg side of things and gets people on Iron Man's side. I also wonder if Ant-Man and Wasp could play the role of Reed Richards and Sue Storm in Cap 3?
More new powers!
We'll see more knew powers with Scarlet Witch, Vision and Quicksilver and even more with Ant-Man and Wasp!
The wearer of the Ant-Man suit has the powers to grow to skyscraper height or shrink to ant size (while in ant size, the wearer still has their normal strength). The Ant-Man suit also has the ability to communicate with insects. Pym particles allow all of this to happen.
Wasp can fly, but only when she is in tiny form or wasp size. She uses Pym particles to shrink and grow. She can go giant, but normally doesn't. She did once and that's when Ultron captured her. She can use her bio electric stingers when normal size, but no flight. I don't think Evangeline Lily will have a problem playing her in this film. I am really looking forward to it!
We could possibly see Hank and Jan as Ant-Man and Wasp!
We will get to see the Avengers Initiative being founded by Hank Pym, Janet Van Dyne and Howard Stark at some point in the movie. We'll see Alexander Pierce return too. The early days of S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Avengers Initiative will be in the 60's, I think. Peggy Carter will be here too. I'm not sure if the early days will be a series of flashbacks or just part of the movie. So fans who wanted Hank and Jan as founding Avengers, we're getting it! I'm pretty sure we'll see them as Ant-Man and Wasp as well.
It's a heist film!
While I doubt Ant-Man will match the humor of other heist films such as Tower Heist, it will be an amazing film! I remember Fiegie also saying that superhero films shouldn't be their own genre, but fit into other genres. Such as Cap 2 being a political thriller, etc.
Also stay tuned, I hear we get the trailer in a week!
