I AM SO EXCITED BY THIS.
reasons i should not read/rant about ant-man before bed:
last night i had a dream that i was watching the ant-man movie. it started out in the 60s, with hank fighting evil hamsters
and ended up in the present day with scott and cassie fighting angry clowns and dracula.
Kate and Scott Lang kind of adopt each other: not in a father/daughter relationship (she has a father and while they don’t have that much in common they do love each other and Kate knows that what her dad wants is, basically, keep her safe and Scott already has a daughter and, no matter what, no-one is ever taking Cassie’s place) but in a, sorta, uncle/niece kind of way, maybe-ish.
The thing is, they look out for each other in a not-teammate way, but as family would. They talk to each other over the phone and help each other out when their grief is too much or when there are doubts and things like that. Neither of them will ever say it like that out loud, but they both think it’s kind of something they can do for Cassie.
Oh, Hank Pym fans, you are adorable with your ridiculousness.
At no point did I ever bash Hank. In fact! I even mentioned that I liked him. A couple of times! Yes, I did comment on his canon mistakes. But alas, these are mistakes that Hank is capable of understanding, (which is why I like him) but the worst sections of his fans continually want to gloss over or have childish hissy fits about anyone discussing it EVER.
Also, there is a huge difference between “Hey, these fans are acting pretty awful, because this is why some people might not like Hank” and “FUCK EDGAR WRIGHT AND FUCK SCOTT LANG.”
The second is bashing. If you think the first is … LOL, if you think saying, “hey, people have real life reasons they might not like that issue where Hank slapped Jan” is bashing, you are incredibly selfish and should get the fuck over yourself.
So comic!Scott/comic!Tony is one of the few things I really ship comics!Tony with. I’m one of … two? people who ship it, I think. I’ve always wanted more fic of it.
If Scott really is in Ant Man movie, does this mean that people might ship my secret, tiny, rarest of rare ships? Please?
I have ran afoul of some pretty hateful Pym fans too. Personally, I like Scott better.
I just read someone saying that “narratively, it doesn’t make sense to start with the second ant man.”
If the movies followed the comics exactly, no, it wouldn’t. But that train has long since left the station, you know?
Narratively, the comics have made many, many changes. In a world in which Hawkeye and Black Widow were founding Avengers, Baldr may or may not even exist, Thor doesn’t smack the ground with a stick to switch identities, Jane Foster is an astrophysicist instead of a nurse and/or doctor, and Bucky Barnes wasn’t a 16 year old sidekick, the movies can make any changes they wish. Swapping out the first Ant Man for the second one is not anywhere near as big as the rest of those changes.
Also, we can still get Jan at some point. She does not, bad comic stories and cartoons aside, have to be attached to Hank’s dick.
But tl;dr: it’s cool that you’re upset that you’re not getting your favorite Ant Man. Whatever. Be upset. But complaining that it “doesn’t make sense” to start with the second Ant Man in a movie verse that uses the comics as a vague guide is hilarious. The movie verse changes things. Get over it.
I love Hank and all, my comics are mostly Hank, but poor Scott just gets all the hate.
I’m the only person who likes Scott best and is excited he’s going to be in the Ant-Man movie, aren’t I…?
I am the entire Scott Lang fandom. And I can’t draw. Shit.
i thought everyone knew the ant-man movie was going to be about both hank pym AND scott lang
