Before they make an appearance at Marvel Studios' panel later tonight, the cast and crew of Ant-Man stopped by the Marvel Comics booth to discuss the movie. It makes for an amusing few minutes, but perhaps the biggest reveal is from Corey Stoll. He confirms that he will indeed play Darren Cross and describes the character as a former protégé of Hank Pym. We also hear a little more about that character's qualifications and it seems fair to say that the movie is in good hands with Peyton Reed as he is clearly enthusiastic about the project and material it's based on.

MARVELPSYCHO79 - 7/26/2014, 1:43 PM
I have no doubt this movie will be good but I hate Old Man Pym and him not joining The Avengers for future sequels.
PAF - 7/26/2014, 1:43 PM
That interview was funny. The girl is going to get fired for making that production joke.
SpiderFraud - 7/26/2014, 1:44 PM
I bet the whole cast makes fun of Peyton behind his back.
DeusExSponge - 7/26/2014, 1:44 PM
MarkyMark - If Black Panther does appear in the MCU, I hope him and Scott have a conversation and Scott will mention that Sex Panther remark: "It's called Sex Panther by Odeon. It's illegal in nine countries... Yep, it's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good."
clement445 - 7/26/2014, 1:44 PM
hope the movie is good
MARVELPSYCHO79 - 7/26/2014, 1:44 PM
I also hate Janet could be Scott Lame's love interest.
thewonderer - 7/26/2014, 1:45 PM

MrCBM - 7/26/2014, 1:46 PM

KurtWagner1225 - 7/26/2014, 1:47 PM

Nubase - 7/26/2014, 1:48 PM
Is antmans arch rival a ant eater?
WhiteSAMURAI22 - 7/26/2014, 1:48 PM
I'm betting this movie will be better than Iron Man 3, but still worse than Iron Man 2.
MrCBM - 7/26/2014, 1:49 PM
@Ezio thanks man. I'm so [frick]ing excited!
NovaCorpsFan - 7/26/2014, 1:51 PM
It's gonne be two in the morning before I hear anything from this Marvel panel.
MARVELPSYCHO79 - 7/26/2014, 1:52 PM
I hope those 2017 & 2018 dates are all part of Phase 3.Marvel Studios need to release Avengers 3 in May 2019.Let Joss Whedon recharge his battery after Age Of Ultron and introduce more characters/heroes to take on Thanos.
MARVELPSYCHO79 - 7/26/2014, 1:54 PM
Hopefully Black Panther and The Inhumans are part of Phase 3.
MARVELPSYCHO79 - 7/26/2014, 1:56 PM
I live on the East Coast so 8:30 P.M. it is.That's when the EPICNESS begins.
Ramiel - 7/26/2014, 1:56 PM
Where's Evangeline Lilly?
IHateBoogers - 7/26/2014, 2:03 PM
@BatfleckReturns Do you have more? I've been trying to find the footage everywhere.
Barchiel - 7/26/2014, 2:03 PM
Give us MORE Batfleck!
spidey1994 - 7/26/2014, 2:03 PM
@BatfleckReturns HOLY SHIT!!!!!!
IronMountaineer - 7/26/2014, 2:04 PM
Totally agree @Ezio , Marvel interviews always are awkward, I think they're afraid to say anything contractually haha. But yeah, I'm excited for this movie, and Rudd, and Douglas!

@Batfleck, no apologies needed, that, sir, is badass! Thanks!
KurtWagner1225 - 7/26/2014, 2:06 PM
IronMountaineer-yeah i watched the one with Joss last year and if it wasnt for Joss charm..that interview would have been awkward as frick ad that image of Batman....HELL YEAH!!
DrKinsolving - 7/26/2014, 2:07 PM
Can't wait to hear more about this aaand I need to see that Batman footage!!
JoJo1982 - 7/26/2014, 2:12 PM

Lol damn u had some guts take that pic
I had like 2 security guys by me looking around like the terminator.
Maan I really wanted get a pic of his whole armor
batmanvsuperman - 7/26/2014, 2:13 PM
Oh yea we need evengeline lilly
MARVELPSYCHO79 - 7/26/2014, 2:15 PM
I really don't like that Batman pic.That helmet/armored cowl looks awkward.
AsgardianHobo - 7/26/2014, 2:16 PM
@Batfleck, thats what I wanted to see, the eyes!!!!!!

wcwpoet - 7/26/2014, 2:16 PM
I'm still bummed that Edgar Wright won't be doing this but I'm praying this is good. The helmet looks great and I love the cast so fingers crossed. Oh and I can't wait to see that leaked footage from Dawn of Justice
blackandyellow - 7/26/2014, 2:17 PM
I have zero interest in this movie anymore.
LittleDanglyThing - 7/26/2014, 2:20 PM
Rudd really is the perfect choice for Scott Lang though...
What I want to know is, how is no one excited that Michael Douglas is Hank Pym? IDGAF how old he is, that's Michael [frick]ing Douglas as HANK PYM.
That's like casting Clint Eastwood as Batman. Just cool as shit.
KurtWagner1225 - 7/26/2014, 2:21 PM
LittleDanglyThing-EXACTLY..i dont care either about him being old..its MICAHEL DOUGLAS IN AN ANT MAN MOVIE!!
Deschain99 - 7/26/2014, 2:27 PM
Holy sh**t its still a cast in this. Good times
Largo161 - 7/26/2014, 2:29 PM
This has no bearing on how the movie will turn out, but Rudd's answers to the questions about research and what drew him to the project were weak.
TheRationalNerd - 7/26/2014, 2:34 PM
Is Rudd drunk? lol Seems like he's rehearsing lines when she asked him questions. I'm sure it'll be a good if not great film but it seems like they aren't too familiar with their characters or previous info about them as well.

F4 vs. Ant-Man for 2015! (battle of the newbies)
