Big Ant-Man news (and maybe some spoilers) is coming from Hall H and the Marvel Studios panel. Former Lost star, Evangeline Lilly finally has a role to announce, she's playing Hope van Dyne, Hank Pym's daughter. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) is the man who invented the shrinking technology, aka Pym Particles, and now he's taken Paul Rudd's character, Scott Lang, under his wing to eventually take over the business.

But Rudd isn't his first mentee. They also announced that House of Cards star, Corey Stoll is playing Pym's business partner, Darren Cross who is using the company for nefarious purposes. It also sounds like he'll be using the Pym Particles to transform himself into Yellowjacket, the big villain of the movie.

It's a good thing I liked Iron Man 1, since apparently they're just recycling the plot.

Bad news Marvel fans Edgar Wright has left Ant-Man. Wright was going to represent the next step in Marvel's shift to non-traditional hero movies after horror-guru James Gunn gives us Guardians of the Galaxy later this year.

"Marvel and Edgar Wright jointly announced today that the studio and director have parted ways on Ant-Man due to differences in their visions of the film," read a statement released on Friday. "The decision to move on is amicable and does not impact the release date on July 17, 2015. A new director will be announced shortly."
What do you think, can Ant-Man weather this storm?
