    Wright may be an interesting directer but, the writing and casting was horrible. Who the hell died and made Michael Douglas ancient Antman?

    Plus the continuity is all screwed up. With Ultron being a Tony Stark creation instead of Hank Pym? Everyone is upset. His vision may be interesting, if Antman was a stand alone movie….BUT IT ISN’T!!!

    Hank Pym is Antman/Giantman. Janet Van Dyne is his girlfriend (later wife and ex-wife) and the Wasp. Hank made Ultron folks not Tony. Scott Lang is a kid right about now.

    (PS:X-Men Days of Future Past is the best X-Men ever….one scene after the credits.)
