New Ant-Man News From Comic-Con. Evangeline Lilly Finally Has a Role.

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.

The View News Is Out: Thor Will Become a Woman

Yesterday, Marvel let us know to keep an eye on The View today, for an 'all-new thundering title'. That title: an all new Thor comic being lead, for the first time, by a woman.

According to Whoopi, Thor will make a mistake so grievous, he will no longer be worthy of Mjolnir and the power it conveys. Instead, a woman will take up the mantle as Thor, the God of Thunder. And they are being specific that this is not Thor-Girl, but just Thor... The Thor.

This announcement adds to the thrust of diversity we've seen from Marvel over the past year with Kamala Kahn as Ms Marvel and Miles Morales as Spider-Man. The story and woman have yet to be revealed, but we know she'll be blond.

What do you think about this news? Will Thor finally be an interesting property?

Update: Take a closer look at Thor's concept art.
