Did you know there's a superhero called Ant-Man, and that he's going to be starring in a major motion picture later this month? Have you also been living with three other people in a bunker run by a mysterious man who thinks he has what it takes to be on The Apprentice (RIP) for the last twenty years? There's a lot of hype surrounding the pint-sized Marvel hero these days, and in an effort to serve the fervor surrounding Ant-Man, Hasbro is releasing a limited box set featuring the original Ant-Man, Hank Pym, in some of his most famous incarnations.
Throughout the years, Hank Pym has been many heroes. Though he's most synonymous with the Ant-Man persona, Pym has also been Giant-Man, Goliath, Yellowjacket, and the Wasp. He also accidentally created the genocidal artificial intelligence Ultron, but since that's not what happened in the movies, it doesn't count in real life any more. And as luck (and keen marketing) would have it, almost all of those alternate identities are captured here in the San Diego Comic-Con exclusive set.
Former LOST star Evangeline Lilly could soon be blowing up in the size-changing world of Marvel's Ant-Man movie. According to Variety, The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug star could follow Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Michel Pena as an official cast member, although her specific role hasn't been announced. The "insider" word is that Lilly's character could be Pym's daughter and Lang's love interest. If true, that could mean a dramatic reworking of Janet Van Dyne's character -- a founding member of The Avengers who has until now been left out of the Marvel movie universe. Of course, it could be an original character and Janet could remain left out of Ant-Man's movie lore.
Movies: Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone bring the music for a wonderfully goofy German promo.

If somebody had asked me to imagine a theme song for Ant-Man, I'd have probably slid into my usual routine of overlaying custom lyrics atop the season two theme song of Peter Engel's "Hang Time." Awesome as that might s
