SDCC 2014: MARVEL's Ant-Man Cast Announcements, Confirmations and Footage Description.

July 26, 2014

MARVEL's Ant-Man San Diego Comic-Con SDCC Poster

Straight from Marvel’s presentation in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con comes the news that Stoll will play the film’s villain, Darren Cross.  Having had Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas) as his former mentor, Cross takes their company in a direction that Pym does not agree with.  Before long, Cross gets his hands on some Pym particles and becomes the villainous Yellowjacket.

Equally interesting to Stoll’s role is that of Lilly, who has been confirmed as Pym’s daughter Hope Van Dyne.  Comic fans may recognize the similarity to the name Janet Van Dyne, the daughter of a prominent scientist who was a contemporary of Pym’s and eventually took on the mantle of the Wasp.  Looks like the movie version is changing up the mythology a little bit, but that’s par for the course. 

Now about that footage that was screened

The clip begins with the camera floating through what looks like the lab of a mad scientist with bumbling liquids in test tubes all over the place.

Over the scene, we hear Douglas’ Hank Pym encouraging his protege Scott Lang, played by Paul Rudd, that the job he’s about to pull off isn’t that difficult. He just needs to trust in the helmet.

The clip then jumps to Lang in the Ant-Man suit. The footage looked to be mostly CGI, which would make sense considering the movie hasn’t started filming yet.

Lang approaches an ant, who is much bigger than him. Pym, speaking to Lang through a headset, tells him to speak to the ant and trust the helmet. But it looks like the helmet is malfunctioning because the ant isn’t listening.

Something pursues Lang, and he needs to get out of there fast. Pym tells him to take a leap off a ledge and to trust the ants around him. He does and lands safely on the back of a flying ant, escaping the scene.
