The news that Paul Rudd will play Hank Pym in the 2015 Ant-Man movie is the latest piece of inspired casting from Marvel Studios. Rudd will bring charm, humor and an appealing eye-twinkle to what may prove to be Marvel's most comedic movie under writer Joe Cornish and writer-director Edgar Wright.
Marvel characters have found tremendous success on the big screen, both in Marvel's own "in-house" movies such as the Avengers line and in those produced by other studios, such as the Wolverine/X-Men films. Bringing an established character to the screen is an unusual challenge because readers have a strong idea of what they want to see, and actors want to bring something new to the role. ComicsAlliance offers its view on the performers who pulled this off best.
It's very, very early days, and there are a host of factors standing between the idea and its realization, but maybe, just maybe, there might one day be a Peggy Carter TV show set in Marvel's Cinematic Universe. Mmmmmaybe.
Deadline reports a rumor that a TV series centered on the World War II secret agent - first seen on screen in Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger - is in early stages of development. The character was played in the movie by Hayley Atwell, who reprised the role for an Agent Carter short that appears as an extra on the Iron Man 3 DVD, out next week.
Two weeks after announcing that a new "one-shot" short film starring Agent Peggy Carterfrom Captain America: The First Avenger would be accompanying the new Iron Man 3 Blu-ray set, Marvel has released the first clip, which features actress Hayley Atwell as the title character making short work of some impolite thugs.

Spoiler alert for a two-year-old movie and 50-year-old comic: Captain America got preserved in ice near the end of World War II and revived decades later. In comics, we've seen a lot of what happened to the characters Steve Rogers left behind in the 1940s, but what about the movie version Captain America: The First Avenger? Marvel will answer that question, at least in part, with a new short film about actress Hayley Atwell's Agent Peggy Carter -- a "one-shot" if you will -- that will premiere at Comic-Con International next week and be included in the new Iron Man 3 Blu-Ray.
If you thought all Captain America had been up to between getting thawed out of a block of ice and teaming up with Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow and Hawkeye in The Avengersmovie was destroying punching
