So its been confirmed that hes gonna be around in the new Ant-Man series. What should be done with him?

Pink Speedo Hulk

or

Yellowjacket

Should be made Scott's definitive Archnemesis or should someone else *cough Taskmaster* take the spot.

Should he just be forgotten?

JV: “ALL FANS PLEASE LOOK AT THIS [PICTURE] CAREFULLY.” 116 TOTAL DISNEY INFINITY FIGURES AT THE END OF 3.0?

JV: “ALL FANS PLEASE LOOK AT THIS [PICTURE] CAREFULLY.” 116 TOTAL DISNEY INFINITY FIGURES AT THE END OF 3.0?

Alright, everyone take a deep breath and stay with me.

Disney has this new Disney Infinity logo filled with figures in it with various platforms on it. This is similar to the arch way they showed off at E3, leading to speculation that each pedestal represented an unannounced figure. But there were WAY too many spaces.

At E3, they debuted a new display with shorter amounts of spaces. So could this still be a hint? Or just perfectly angled display case?.

Well then JV tweeted this…

And if that didn’t cover it, he did an interview with friend of the site CoinOpTV and said the following (at the 5:00 mark):

“In fact that figure wall has a whole bunch of open slots for characters we haven’t announced yet. So it’s funny because everyone kept saying ‘Are there any more Disney characters? Are there more Star Wars characters? Are there more Marvel characters?’ And if you’re here, you can actually see, yeah there are a ton of open slots for a ton of new characters. And we’re excited to reveal those overtime.”

So could there really be that many Disney Infinity figures to announce?! Well let’s break it down…

There are 116 pedestals on that display including…

  • 29 Figures from Disney Infinity 1.0
  • 30 Figures from Disney Infinity 2.0
  • 28 Figures announced so far for Disney Infinity 3.0

Notably missing are: 8 crystal figures, and the black suit spider-man.

Now there has been this quote that has been floating from JV in regards to the ‘deep bench’ of Disney Infinity 3.0 that there will be more than 100 figures in the Disney Infinity lineup by the end of 3.0’s life cycle. There has been some confusion on whether that includes the ‘variants’ or not. Well I had someone who works for Disney Infinity count for me and they responded with this:

Just did the counting myself and with all of the 1.0 and 2.0 figures (excluding crystals) and 3.0 figures we’ll have more than 100 playable characters. Though if you included crystal figures we’d have even more if that makes sense.

So crystals or not. There will be over 100 unique figures for Disney Infinity 3.0.

So what’s left on the display? If we are fully reading into it… we should still get…

  • 9 Star Wars

  • 4 Marvel

  • 16 Disney figures

The Star Wars and Marvel numbers sound accurate, we haven’t even see any Star Wars Episode 7 figures yet. But 16 Disney figures?! That’s a lot. Could that include the crystal figures? Perhaps, that’d bring the count down to 8 new ones. But why not include them in the display then?

I’m still in the camp that believes we will get a second Disney based play set. So that should be another 5+ disney characters and leave some room for some roster filler as well.

What are your thoughts? This is a lot to take in. And we know how Disney is with their words, especially JV. So let’s chalk it up to the speculation train for now!

Illuminati In The All New All Different MU

well some unexpected choices here.

Hood-we knew about him already

Titania- im assuming its her with a redesign that honestly fits her personality

Thunderball?-this is an interesting choice, im assuming its him and not race swapped absorbing man.

Porcupine?!?!-it looks like him....but if it is.....than who's that wearing his suit on the Ant-Man cover

Enchantress?-again, im just assuming. the sylvie lushton version was a recent addition to the Masters Of Evil iirc

Tiny man in black- is that....Black Ant?

wtf is going on here!?!?!?!?

I get the feeling that Marvel is basically merging the Illuminati with the Masters OF Evil (if anything to have a cooler and more imposing team name lol)

The L.A. Times’ Hero Complex has a first look at the Mark Brooks cover to the post-Secret Wars relaunch of Ant-Man, and it appears as if ex-con Scott Lang might be returning to his outside-the-law ways, flanked by supervillains Whirlwind, Porcupine, a new Beetle and Grizzly. But look closer. While the black & white shading and the seeming team of villains suggest a changing role for Lang in the Marvel Universe, Marvel actually wants you to looks more closely at the image.

“We’re hinting at a major development for Scott. Scott is an ex-con, he’s a guy with a criminal past,” explained series writer Nick Spencer. “This teaser hints that he may not be quite as reformed as we might have thought. This is our first big hint that Scott’s going to find himself back in his old world, back in a criminal life.”

However ... editor Wil Moss also pointed out a very specific element of the image. “The key thing to take away from the promo images is, if you look at Scott’s hand that he’s holding behind his back, he has his fingers crossed.”

Or in other words - no truthsies.

Marvel is keeping the details sparse for now, but did say Lang’s new status quo is influenced by his daughter Cassie, and their father-daughter relationship that was adriving force in the last volume of the series.

“But over the course of the events of the first arc, he actually puts Cassie in a lot of danger,” revealed Spencer. “So he’s come to reassess what he thinks his place in her life should be. When we begin this new story, it’s a very different relationship than it was before.”

The new series will focus on their damaged relationship and whatever happened in the eight-month gap all Marvel titles will feature leading up to Ant-Man #1.

As to Cassie herself, Spencer wouldn’t bite if asked whether a return to get own superhero alter ego Stature was in his plans.

“You know I can’t say anything yet,” the writer said. “But I’m a big Cassie fan. I’m a big Stature fan, who knows what might be in the future.”

Speaking about the villains - several of whom were featured in Spencer's Superior Foes of Spider-Man series - the writer would only reveal Grizzly has a job in Lang’s new Ant-Man Security Solutions company. “I’m having a blast writing him,” said Spencer. “He’s just a big, loyal guy who is trying to go straight. Trying to be a good guy, and not doing the best job of it.”

Though not in the image, Darren Cross – the main villain in July's Ant-Man film, and an unnamed classic Marvel villain whom Spencer teased as "'80s-tastic," would also be a part of the series’ supporting cast.
