@Cherry Bomb:  No. I actually would rather Antman and wasp. But fitting so many characters into a movie for the first time, its hard to fit them in. Im sure if theres a sequel to the Avengers, after the Antman movie, theyll be part of it. Just be happy that were getting an Avengers movie.

@doordoor123:  Then get rid of Hulk, since he's not being portrayed by the same actor in the prequel mvovie. Of course I'm not happy, since Ant-Man and Wasp are two main characters in the Avengers and should be potrayed  ... especially before Black Widow, who isn't even a founder.
 
That's like having an X-Men movie without Jean and Cyclops. A Fantastic Four movie without Invisible Woman or The Thing.

Yay, I know. :/  it's ashame. I wouldn't mind about an AntMan movie, aslong as he appears in the Avengers. I personally don't think an AntMan solo movie would work as well as the others' movies.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again.
I'm not disappointed that Hank and Janet aren't in it (yet). I want a character driven story that doesn't lose it's focus. I'd rather have a small team where everyone gets good screen time like in Fantastic 4 than a huge team where only 2 or 3 people get good screen time while everyone else is a background character like the X-men movies or Ocean's 11/12/13.
I don't want to see good actors/actresses wasting their time on a 15 minute role. Introduce Hank and Janet later.
 
I am a little disappointed that Ed Norton is gone, but I'm trying to move past it.
 
Wasn't War Machine supposed to be part of the cast? Thank God Nick Fury is Black or else this would have been the whitest team since the Silver Age.

@Cherry Bomb: besides, as for the "following the comics" thing...
captain america wasnt a founding member originally, but in this universe he will be
 
so ya, i can understand where you're coming from, but in nall fasirness give them a break
it's not as easy making a movie as just pointing a camera and shouting action
Marvel's been trying for years to get other movies make
Cable? Iron First? i mean, they've had Ray Park signed on to do Iron Fist for years even though it hasnt been greenlit or written yet

@Cherry Bomb: 
 
They probably didnt put antman and wasp in there because they are not as well known as the hulk and black widow.
#21 Edited by Cherry Bomb (3189 posts) - - Show Bio
@WolfMonkey:  I know, I'm not too thrilled with that either. But Captain America has atleast been the 'main' character of the whole Avengers.
 
I'm a media student, I know about movie making and things like that, lol.  All I'm trying to say is that they've had lots of hype around AntMan and Wasp appearing in the movie, rumours here and there and then they aren't even featured in the final project? - it's just very disappointing, especially since those 2 are my favourites out of the Avengers. Even Hawkeye is featured in the damn movie.

Yeah true, but even if they aren't unknown, they could've atleast appeared in the movie. As surprise members and then a prequel movie following after ... like Wolverine from X-Men.
#23 Posted by WolfMonkey (302 posts) - - Show Bio
@Cherry Bomb: true, but remember they cant please everyone
where there are probably half a dozen people who agree with you, there are likely a dozen more who have never heard of ant man or wasp and only know the main three (Cap, Stark, Thor)
If it werent for the Ultimate Avengers movies i wouldnt know who they were
it's sorta a catch 22 i guess
#24 Posted by Cherry Bomb (3189 posts) - - Show Bio
@WolfMonkey:  I understand, like I said to someone else.  Even though they aren't aswell known, it would've been cool to have them featured ... then explore on their past and origins much like what happened with Wolverine. And Hawkeye is in the movie, yet I bet even less people know about him.  :/  it's just surprised me that's all.
#25 Posted by JEdThing (173 posts) - - Show Bio
@Cherry Bomb: 
I completely agree. And it is disappointing, but i can under stand why they put black widow and the hulk in instead. After iron man 2 and its success and the second hulk movie being good, i would replace wasp and antman too. More people will go see it if they have characters in it they know and like, so the film makes more money.

Im sorry. I didnt know i was being a jerk. 
And what i meant was, you could complain all you want but it is the way it is. And i also would love it to stick to comic continuity but it wont. It never has and it never will. Its a movie. I dont know how i could explain it to you any more than that. Ive worked in the movie industry and i know that things never go as planned. Even if the script were written directly from the comic, not everyone would be okay with it. And it had to be flexible enough to make sure every character has enough screen time or the fans would be disappointed or it would make no sense to have so many characters. Maybe they felt like eight main characters were enough. And theyre mixing universes so it makes more sense to leave out characters like ant-man and wasp. In the Ultimate universe Hawkeye and Black Widow ARE technically some of the first Avengers. But more of an Avengers black Ops team. 
You could have your opinion but it is the way it is. Why put out negative energy by being upset about it when you could embrace it and look on the bright side. Its an Avengers movie. I would never think that in a million years that there would ever be such a concept build up. And im excited. If im not mistaking this will be the first film to actually mesh three different films together. Im excited to see how itll turn out.
 
PS i realize i had some run-on sentences and bad period spotting, but im too lazy to go back. When i write with passion i often dont write very well.

Look at this way, at least The Avengers movie will be in Marvel Studios' hands, not Fox, not Sony Pictures, but Marvel (and Disney).   
 
While that isn't necessarily a guarantee the movie will do well, at least if it goes by the Iron Man track record, I think we will be pleased.   
  
Let's give everyone involved a chance.

what would've worked best for hank and janet was them having their own movie,
but how could they even dream of a successful box office when nobody knows them?
When the Avengers movie comes out they'll get one, because with the Avengers movie power behind them they can get more box office results. 2009 or this year would've been perfect for them to get a movie released, but they're not big names like spider-man or x-men, so box office would've been really low.

Yes you were a jerk, you could have said what you wanted to say in a civilised way without being rude. :/  In every universe AntMan and Wasp are practically founders and main members. And just because thats the way it is doesn't mean I still can't have my say and share what I think on the subject, welcome to the beauty of forums.   If you want to read a forum full of positive energy and OD on happiness, then Comicvine isn't your place.
 
Just because your excited doesn't mean I have to be. I am still looking forward to this movie, but how would you feel if your favourite characters were cut out?  probably the same as I do. I'm happy with Captain America and Iron Man, completely satisfied, it's just other elements, IMO, could've worked out better.

@JEdThing:  true, but Hawkeye is still a confusing thing for me ... I think they just picked a character at random and thrown him in the movie. I doubt he'll have hardly any screen time at all.

They could have chose a worse character to throw in the movie. So, i guess what im saying is hawkeye is a good character and i dont mind him being in the movie.

#41 Edited by Captain13 (3318 posts) - - Show Bio
@Cherry Bomb: Remember how Renner leaked that he was cast as Hawkeye months ago, and Marvel told him to hush? I think he's still supposed to have a surprise guest appearance in Thor before he shows up in the Avengers. If that's true, Eva Longoria and Nathan Fillion may show up by surprise as Wasp and Ant-man in smaller roles compared to everyone else in the Avengers. It would introduce them to audiences and launch their solo movie. Marvel may just want to keep it on the DL. Make it a secret like Nick Fury, you know? You may still have hope.

@JEdThing:  Ali Larter, definately. She'd be perfect.
 
@Captain13:
yeah I remember, smaller roles for AM and Wasp would be cool, better than nothing I supposed. They BETTER show up or else I will protest outside Marvel Studios!  ( Iwon't really, but I will email them ALOT)   Urghh, I will be disappointe if Eva and Nathan do actually play them ... they are horrible choices.

I like Nathan. Not sure about Eva, but i'm willing to give her a shot. Especially since she'll draw in the 16-45 year old women crowd or whoever watches that Housewives show.

I'm not so sure. She's a spin-off character. How would they explain her origin without talking about Captain Marvel and the Kree? She just seems too complicated for a team flick IMO.

I love Eva in Desperate Housewives, just not sure she has what it takes to do action movies though, but I'd give her a shot and I think Nathan is too old!  Uhm, someone mentioned Nora Zehetner from Heroes or Michelle Monaghan from Eagle Eye.
 
For Ant Man, hm ... Paul Walker ? [:

Joss Whedon... 'NUFF SAID!!!
 
I stated they should have had another lady in the mix, but if they had put Wasp in it then Ant Man/Giant Man would have been added.  Ms. Marvel on the other hand.... With a name like she has, the average movie-goer isn't going to know who the heck she is anyway. Still, I could easily see her making a cameo (and perhaps more) towards the end of the film. They should at least include Henry Pym in it as a scientist of S.H.I.E.L.D. (and a mention of him having a wife too of course.)
 
This movie is going to be the greatest super-hero film ever. I just hope that it's not the top of the mountain for super-hero films. I'm not quite ready for them to start going downhill just yet.
