Believe it or not, somewhere one Earth Marvel’s Ant man is somebody’s favorite Avenger. With Avenger mania sweeping the planet (and draining wallets everywhere) Marvel Studios is fully aware that Ant Man has the potential to be HUGE (see what I did there). Scott Pilgrim director Edgar Wright will soon be bringing us the misadventures of Hank Pym, also known as the Ant Man. Considering Mr. Wright has consitantly given us cinematic gold, we have high hopes for the Ant Man franchise. Now, last we heard there is no solid plan to bring Edgar Wright’s Ant Man into the current Avengers film universe, but if we whine enough we may get our way. More importantly however are the following questions. Who exactly is the Ant Man? And, who is the perfect actor to portray the super genius Hank Pym?

In a mad dash to beat other more powerful
mutant media outlets to the punch, I didn’t get a chance to write my opinion until after this post went live. All I can say is WOW. I’m totally blown away by the style and atmosphere of this trailer. The fact that the trailer used footage from Brian Singer’s X-men, and didn’t completely throw out the previously established mythology has me elated. Were the X-men films perfect? Hell no, but what you can’t argue with is that prior to Singer’s X-men the “super hero” film genre was not taken seriously. I’m happy to see the use of traditional X-men colors, and love the fact that the X-men were somehow part of the Cuban Missile crisis. I cannot wait to see more!
