    JJ … Hank Pym is not the villain for this movie … Pym is the old hero passing the torch to the new hero.

    I’ve always had a thing for Michael Douglas, but, oh no, he’s starting to look like his father. It’s funny while they look similar, I never thought Kirk Douglas was a good looking man.

    Reportedly, they just received a delayed shipment of live ants and X-Mass presents at today’s ‘Planet of the Apes’ space station in outer space. Did Sandra Bullock get anything for her recent successful space station movie at the Globes? Need to check that out…

    Very disappointed. Hank Pym is a hero and founding avenger in the source material. Personal favorite and complex character who’s storylines could have, in-part, inspired continuing plot lines in mcu. Take his ultron story, his role as a hero, just butcher an original and creative character.

    WTH!??? ARE THEY SERIOUS? MICHAEL DOUGLAS AS ANTMAN??!!!!

    Plus who wrote this article? He’s definitely not an investigative reporter. Anyhow, since Pym was a founding member of the Avengers are they a bit late putting this movie out there? I think they made a serious mistake with this one.
