ANT-MAN @ San Diego Comic-Con #SDCC2014


Following the reveal of a teaser poster of ANT-MAN at the beginning of San Diego Comic Con 2014, the movie was par of the MARVEL presentation in Hall H on Saturday, where further casting of the principal characters were unveiled. Evangelie Lily will play "Hope Van Dyne" (daughter of Hank Pym), and Cory Stroll will be "Yellowjacket" ("Darren Cross") - the villain of the movie. Joining them at the SDCC panel were first timers to the geekcon; Paul Rudd ("Scott Lang") and Michael Douglas ("Dr Hank Pym").

"There are two components to this pretty zany footage: a scene in Hank Pym's lab, where the camera just pans across the space, showing off all of the weird scientific equipment and bubbling beakers and creepy anthills, before finishing up at an Ant-Man helmet.

During this, Michael Douglas is convincing Scott Lang to do something. Lang protests that Hank seems nice but "I'm not a superhero." That means he's not an egomaniac, and he's not an "undisciplined moron causing more destruciton than he stops," Pym retorts. Superheroes are a "ridiculous concept. You're doing this because it's the right thing to do."

"Someone already stole your balls," Pym taunts Lang. "It's just a small job, he adds.

Cut to a tiny Scott Lang in the Ant-Man suit, running away after completing the "small job" — his Ant-Man helmet is on the fritz, and he keeps losing his connection to Hank Pym, who's barking instructions.

He's supposed to use the helmet to control "the transport" — which turns out to be a small flying ant. He tries to convince the flying ant to help him out, but the ant isn't listening. And then some flying lights show up, chasing him — so Scott has no choice but to jump off the building onto the flying ant, which he doesn't have a very stable grip on. He's trying to reach a rendezvous with Hank, but first he has to survive."

Images seen here are of the prop revealed at SDCC: Ant-Man's helmet! (Pics via SHH). I was thinking; "Would they make a scaled miniaturized Ant-Man with their eventual action figures?" … then I realized, the action figures themselves at 6-whatever-7 inches, ARE already miniaturized versions of Ant-Man, compared to us humans at 1:1-scale! hahahahhahaha

Sorry, "brainfart"… :p
