He's been in his 30's in Dan Slott's recent/not very recent run - but that was recently retconned and he's 28 now - bitten by the Radioactive Spider 13 years ago, so...

I can tell you this with absolute authority, the Peter Parker from present day 616 continuity has never been in his 30's. Ever.

It's canon that he was bitten when he was a sophomore in high school.

In the not-too-distant past, the Fantastic Four's rocket launch was set on a sliding time scale of "10 years ago."

In recent years, that increased to "13 years ago."

At no point in Marvel 616 lore has it ever stretched further than that. And the FF were already a number of adventures in when Peter got bitten by the spider. Therefore the oldest he could possibly be now is 27 or 28 years old.

Not really up for argument. These are the facts. This is the way it is. :-)

i was right?!?!

screw being humble!!

Scott Lang is ready to steal something, I guess.

He already stole something..........Hank Pym's spotlight.....

Naw.

Scott Lang > Hank Pym.

Pym maybe the original Ant-Man, and the creator of the Pym particles but the reason most of his career has been interesting is because of his ties to the Avengers. In his solo adventures back when he debuted in Tales to Astonish, he just had a bunch of wacky adventures that were tantamount to 1950s B movies. He was just a scientist, and Jan was his girlfriend, they fought timeless villains such as Egghead (sarcasm).....ergo, there is nothing all that great about Hank Pym by himself, unless you count the time he hit his wife, or the time he created a Thor clone that killed Black Goliath, or the time he created one of the Avengers most deadly villains. -F*ck Hank Pym-

At least Scott Lang as a desperate thief has an interesting premise right from the start, and the fact that he will be a legacy hero gives him a different dynamic from the other super hero origin stories...

But, lets be honest with ourselves--We all want to see an Ant-Man film with Eric O' Grady where he just goes around using his size manipulation to be a sex pest.

good to see someone else giving Scott a little love even though i do think you're being a bit hard on Hank

I only saw one episode of MI where Velma tried to ask Shaggy to prom, and it seemed very oc and lame to me. With everyone speaking so positively of it though, maybe I should give it another try.

you do. definitely.

Mystery Incorporated was honestly fantastic - it's one of my favorite versions of Mystery Inc.

well it is the most mature incarnation of Scooby I've seen. Almost like the late 90's Scooby Doo movies

Loved those movies. they're actually what first got me into Scooby i believe.

Mystery Inc is the ONLY Scooby Doo show I like. It was mature, funny and explored the gang and their families more.

This show ruined most of the previous shows to me. They just can't compare. that actually has happened to me with more than a couple shows.

Mystery Incorporated was so dark and had such an epic plot i liked it so much. It became my fave scooby doo series i loved all the representation of the main group in it (yes even fred despite the fact i don't like fred).

@modernww2fare said:

@thetruebarryallen: why Fred? I did like how they gave Linda Cardellini a role too!

His backstory in the show was absolutely fantastic, he's always been my favorite Scooby Doo character, and his obsession with traps was just hilarious to me.

I couldn't agree more!!! I always respected Fred but never really liked him up until this incarnation of the show. He and Scooby arguably benefited the most in terms of character and backstory development (although Velma grew alot as well)

Mystery Inc brought the gang to a whole new level. Loved Fred and Daphne's relationship. The mysteries were good. Supporting casts was great. Good show. I miss it.

Mystery Incorporated all the way. it captures the best things about each Scooby-Doo series and combines and enhances them. im happy to see the love for it.

Too formal, bruhs?

I just have no idea what that means. Studios don't let "actors decide". That's not how casting works. You get a script. You have a character, you send out what you're looking for in actors/actresses to play that character and you hold auditions and pick the best one.

They don't say "Hey Rock, you're awesome, we want you in our movie. Who you wana play?"

So is this some sort of way to drag out the media attention by playing a game of either or?

I really don't get it.

the whole "yet to decide" thing was just a joke. Rock's been pretty vague about who he's playing.

@mr__kamikaze: But we may see more of Pym in action in the flashbacks. There's supposed to be some early SHIELD connection.

that'd be cool if Hank was a founder and/or SHIELD agent or maybe he could be the guy who conceived the Avengers Initiative in the first place (as sort of a callback to his suggesting the Avengers form in the comics)
