When Does Ant-Man Take Place?

When Does Ant-Man Take Place?


Ant-Man ends Phase 2 of the MCU by giving
us a glimpse of what’s to come in Phase 3, but also an excellent look back at the
MCU during a time period we’ve yet to properly explore. This is part 12 of a 20 part video series
discussing when each film in the MCU takes place. When does Ant-Man actually take place? “I think our first move should be calling
the Avengers.” Ant-Man begins in 1989, as Hank Pym derides
Howard Stark, and Peggy Carter for abusing his Pym Particle technology, and he quits
S.H.I.E.L.D. to enter an early retirement. By this point Janet Van Dyne had been lost
in the Quantum Realm for about 2 years, and we get a flashback to that time later in the
film. Scott Lang is freed from a 3 year prison sentence
on July 17th, 2015, according to this WHiH Newsfront video. “Scott Lang, who’s set to be released
from federal prison on July 17th.” Several months pass between this event and
the main time period of the film, considering Scott is criticized for not paying any money
towards child support for Cassie, and the fact that he’s having a real problem holding
down a job. Considering Ant-Man was released on October
16th, 2015, we can assume the film takes place around that time period. We know this occurs after Avengers: Age of
Ultron, as Hank makes a reference to them dropping a city out of the sky, and Scott
invades the new Avengers facility in upstate New York that they just set up. Hank’s medicine expires on May 17, 2016,
so the film must occur before this. Conveniently, we can nail down the climax
of Ant-Man as occurring on October 9th, thanks to this iPhone, and in 2015 this lands on
a Friday. The mid-credits scene is literally a shot
from Captain America: Civil War, which takes place in 2016 as we’ll discuss in part 13. .6% of the film takes place in 1987, 1.6%
in 1989, 97.3% in 2015, and another .5% in 2016. If you enjoyed this video, please like and

Will Ant-Man 3 Drop An MCU Bombshell

Will Ant-Man 3 Drop An MCU Bombshell


The MCU rumor mill has indeed been working
overtime, most recently churning out the unconfirmed report that a new film featuring a certain
Quantum Realm explorer and his crew may be in the works. We’re referring, of course, to the pint-sized
Avenger Scott Lang, AKA Ant-Man. Now, a new rumor has surfaced one which suggests
that the flick, if it happens, might herald the debut of the MCU’s Young Avengers. “You want a juice box and some string cheese?” “…Do you really have that?” All jokes aside, most Marvel fans are already
well aware that Ant-Man’s MCU status has been a bit up in the air not because Lang and his
paramour-slash-partner the Wasp didn’t make it through the showdown with Thanos featured
in Avengers: Endgame, but because a new Ant-Man film was conspicuously left out of Marvel’s
mammoth Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2019. With Ant-Man’s absence on the Phase 4 timeline,
many fans were left wondering what would become of the quippiest of Avengers. To date, Marvel has yet to confirm the fate
of the Ant-Man franchise, spawning rumors that the studio may either be planning to
take the Ant-Man and the Wasp team to the small-screen via the Disney+ streaming platform,
or that it might not be planning to move forward with a new Ant-Man tale at all, and that Scott
Lang’s quantum realm-jumping days in the MCU may actually be over. Those fears appeared to be put to rest when
self-proclaimed Marvel Studios insider Charles Murphy claimed that Ant-Man 3 is now in the
works, and that the film may be slotting into Phase 5 of the MCU with a July 29, 2022 release
date. Part of the reported scoop involves the discovery
of a new company being formed in California in September 2019, with a seemingly telling
name: Pym Particles Production III LLC. Furthermore, Murphy reported that Paul Rudd
and Evangeline Lilly would be reprising their roles as the insect-themed, crime-fighting
duo, with Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer presumably returning as Dr. Hank Pym and O.G. Wasp Janet Van Dyne. Now would be a good time to reiterate that
Marvel has not yet confirmed that Ant-Man 3 is a go for the MCU’s Phase 5 or beyond
or that the film is even a possibility so take this rumor with a big ol’ grain of salt. Mr. Murphy has produced accurate info on occasion,
but he hasn’t been right about everything and you know what they say about broken clocks. Murphy went on to offer another whopper regarding
the possible narrative arc of Ant-Man 3, involving Scott Lang’s now teen-aged daughter Cassie. The latest bit of MCU conjecture involves
Cassie Lang following in the footsteps of her incredible shrinking daddy, and donning
her own shrinking suit to fight crime an arc that would then open the door for Marvel’s
Young Avengers to make their first appearance in the MCU. Needless to say, any storyline involving a
Young Avengers team would be a legit bombshell for the ever-expanding MCU, and it would not
be all that surprising to see Marvel Studios head in that direction.. If we’re being completely honest, after a
decade-plus of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, and Hulk essentially leading
the charge, a little new blood would be welcome and with several of those characters’ storylines
either completed or very up in the air after Endgame, it’s clear that a few fresh faces
will be needed to take the heroic reins for future Avengers movies. Other than Cassie Lang and Harley Keener,
the kid from Iron Man 3 who turned up at Tony Stark’s funeral in Endgame, and who has been
speculated to be on the path to becoming the MCU’s version of Iron Lad there are a few
other canonical team members who have been teased, officially or otherwise. We know that Kate Bishop will indeed play
a key role in the upcoming Disney+ series Hawkeye, with Hailee Steinfeld circling the
project. It’s also been rumored that Wiccan could play
a part in the Scarlet Witch series WandaVision, and that Hulkling might potentially be turning
up in Captain Marvel 2. But of course, until we get any kind of official
announcements, it’s all just shiny conjecture. At this point, we’re going to have to go ahead
and call the Ant-Man 3/Young Avengers rumor highly questionable, if only for the fact
that we don’t even have confirmation on Lang’s third solo outing yet. If we do, and if that confirmation also happens
to spawn one the biggest narrative shifts in the MCU, then so much the better. Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more Looper videos about your favorite

Ant-Man 3 Movie CONFIRMED – Beyond The Trailer

Ant-Man 3 Movie CONFIRMED – Beyond The Trailer


Why make ant-man 3 look I love ant-man particularly played by Paul Rudd I love Evangeline Lilly as the wasp as well, but Hollywood’s gonna ask these questions both business-wise and Creative wise I wish Peyton Reed would ask himself these questions As you’ll see this conversation we’re about to have would be very helpful to the 3rd fountain. All right So anyway ant-man 3 why make it legit question Especially when you consider that ant-man 1 & 2 are two of the lowest grossing movies in the MCU Which means that things didn’t improve with the sequel even though ant-man and the wasp came right after? Infinity war and helped to set up endgame people didn’t care They said I’ll just read about it online or just skip right to endgame they a lot of people chose You know, they made the choice and that’s very important not to see ant-man and the wasp that’s bad Especially because Paul Rudd so lovable but his box office numbers have never been strong Anyway and gran Julian Lily doesn’t really make any other movies. But anyway you know, it usually levels the characters movies up in the MCU a Director change but no Kevin Feige just signed Peyton Reed to return for round 3 Making Reed the only director in the MCU because John Watson’s MCU adjacent to make a complete solo trilogy, but you know what? But that might be nice for Reed and his management team, but we’re not in the Peyton Reed business and neither is Kevin Feige Kevin Feige is in the MCU business and I don’t think Peyton Reed is a good choice here but as many of you pointed out at least this means that Reed won’t direct the Fantastic Four movie that he’s been angling to direct or wall T because Reed is friends with James Gunn and Explicably got this gig this, you know Third did he’s got he’s getting around three even though he’s had he’s failed twice now The Fantastic Four movie is clearly a ways off so he could always do it after another ant-man movie and his name is Reed I wonder if Payton has used that. He’s like I’ll use anything to Fantastic Four. Please don’t give it to him But anyway back to ant-man three, there’s going to be quite the waiting list for release dates in the MCU So I give what’s coming quickly a coveted spot a coveted rare spot to a set of movies that are clearly Operating at a smaller level. Hmm As I said, it’s a legit question, but here are some legit answers Alright, so number one Paul Rudd crushed it in endgame. He was hilarious He punched a Leviathan in the face He was Marvel movie magic one of the best characters in that movie and he stole a lot of his scenes in Civil War right? I mean he really does a great job when he’s in any movie that Peyton Reed isn’t directing I’m just saying alright, so as you can see, I’m not saying they shouldn’t make another ant-man movie I’m just saying they shouldn’t make one with Peyton Reed, but you know what? Maybe Reed will finally get it right because his ant-man movies have been Surprisingly low on action sequences despite having two characters with amazing powers that really Suit themselves to not only action sequences but unique ones now and then and the wasp is I’m sure some of you are already typing Did have some cool action sequences but not only were they short but pretty much all of them I think all of them actually were teased and for the most part fully shown in the trailers So when you go to the multiplex you were like, so there is nothing else what alright so number two reason number two So, yeah, but still Paul Rudd I want to see more of him as ant-man and I want to see more Evangeline Lilly as the wasp But not answer number two theme parks because ant-man is such a cool character Of course, he and the wasp are popping up in the theme parks Disney has a diverse portfolio Hong Kong Disneyland’s Buzz Lightyear ride got ant-man and the wasp makeover just this year featuring Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly Oh, I want to ride that so bad. It looks amazing I do love Buzz Lightyear as a ride So I don’t love it when they reskin rides like they reskin Tower of Terror for guardians of the galaxy Love Tower of Terror, but do love guardians of the galaxy if you know the new version of the ride So I don’t know is it time for Buzz? Lightyear to go the way of ant-man and the wasp I have any of you by the way It looks like an amazing ride and I love the Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly filmed stuff for the attraction, you know Just show us how awesome they are and they deserve better movies. Alright, so Plus there’s the pen test kitchen coming to Avengers campus in 2020 these attractions need a movie to back them up who wants to ride the ride or eat at the restaurant of the duo that’s Third movie got canceled less people that want to eat it the one that’s going forward Although I’m yeah, I’m just gonna put a pall over it I mean, I’m still riding that ride meeting at that restaurant But it would be less cool now on that note number three It seems everybody gets a trilogy if you get started you get a trilogy in the MCU or maybe even more as Thor says Cuz I think his first two movies didn’t really count particularly that middle one Because again, it would be embarrassing for ant-man and the wasps to not complete their own trilogy Which is very good news for Doctor Strange who also was low gross in comparative. He did very well overseas But Doctor Strange and of course Black Panther and Captain Marvel To complete their trilogies blood wonder though being dead is a bit of a question mark and one has to wonder if Florence Pugh Will inherit ScarJo second two movies, I’d be down for that Then reason answer number for Disney Plus I put a question mark here because some of you guessed when I was tweeting about this on Friday That a third ant-man movie because of their smaller scale both Creatively and at the box office would maybe be a better fit at Disney Plus, which of course Disney is very aggressively populating with not just content but Marvel content, but while it’s well It’s does seem like a good fit to me and I wouldn’t rule it out again I think the demotion would be bad for the theme parks in the MCU brand overall Ant-man is such a valuable character in the in the team-up movies. I don’t think they want to do that to him I think that the second-tier characters who will never get a movie like, you know Although, you know Wanda’s leveling up to the Doctor Strange sequel, but still she’s never gonna get our own set of movies, right? Sorry I wanted a fan switch is getting it looks like an amazing TV series, but I think that’s the distinction so I don’t know if Disney Plus actually would work out then 5 another Avenger because not every manager does Their own set of movies and thor ragnarok prove that team-ups are a very good idea Doctor Strange is casting a team-up spell for his own sequel with Wanda and their a lot and I think he’s gonna have a ton Of adventures in that old be it basically be like another Civil War where it’s the de-facto Avengers movie but anyway there are a lot of Characters who could show up in an ant an other ant-man and the wasp movie first and foremost professor Hulk who’s now done some some Work in their field and that would be fantastic. And of course, well Hulk could be showing up in the she-hulk show He’s fabulous in the movies He can’t have his own movie because that universal deal still in place and then they get to release any Hulk move So all the hulk movies themselves, so I think he’d be great in ant-man and wasp movie and they could certainly use the assist ant-man Giant man, you know ant-man giant man and Hulk’s fighting side-by-side. I love it All right fine, and I think there’s a lot of good stuff there finally breeze on answer number six LaChance Ur number six is Secret Invasion as I’ve pointed out before in my Secret Invasion Coverage in the comics both Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne were a big part of that story Hank was replaced by a Skrull as a sleeper agent and went undiscovered for quite some time He did a lot of damage and some of that was turning Janet Van Dyne into a living bomb who detonated when the scrolls needed her to at a pivotal point in the battle It’s a big part of Janet Van Dyne book history. In fact and Hank I don’t know if it’ll happen to Michael Douglas and Michelle Pfeiffer I don’t know if they’ll you know play around the storyline and have it happen to Scott and hope we’ll see Because you know, it is rumored that Secret Invasion could be the captain the second Captain Marvel movie Although we all want an A Force movie damn it. Maybe that’ll be Captain Marvel 3, which is so far away. I Don’t think Secret Invasion should involve an all-female team. But anyway, a third ant-man and the wasp movie could help set up Secret Invasion No matter where it takes place. I still think so You can envision, you know Cuz I think they were I think they want Captain Marvel to to be an a force movie quite frankly. Brie Larson herself So so pushing for that. I think Secret Invasion should be the next Avengers movie Avengers Secret Invasion. It’ll be amazing I love it. So I’m again ant-man the wasp could help set that up, but it’s pretty far down the line So we’ll be getting time to have an Avengers movie at that point as well So I hope will you see Edmund in the wasp 3 if it sets up Secret Invasion or you just be like I’ll catch up Alright, so cuz you know again, I guess it only really set up And game in the end credits sequence. Maybe they have to make that the whole movie Alright, so those are the legit reasons to make ant-man 3 But I still have very little faith in Peyton Reed but fingers crossed because these reasons are also good So I really think they should make ant-man 3, but it just boggles the mind they would Repaint and read I just I mean he had two chances I mean, it’s not like, oh he had to learn, you know, like Bryan Singer the difference between X x-men and x2, right? Christopher Nolan difference when Batman Begins and the Dark Knight blood Peyton’s had his two movies and he didn’t level up at all Alright, so share your thoughts down below subscribe today.

Box Office for Ant-Man & The Wasp Opening Weekend

Box Office for Ant-Man & The Wasp Opening Weekend


hello and welcome to this week’s movie
math where God Almighty or at least mother nature or maybe even
storm soon to be owned by Disney took pity on the movie industry and sent a
mighty heatwave across the land so sweltering that only commercial grade
air-conditioning would do yes it’s estimated that ninety four million
people in the United States were hit with heat advisories over the fourth of
July holiday and many of them took refuge in their local movie theater
hallelujah the result a refreshing downpour of money for Hollywood where
everyone got a little wet and while you would expect Disney to have gotten
drenched they did not plot twists yes while plenty of movie goers witnessed
the debut of the wasp thank you for those of you who sent in pictures I
couldn’t do a ticket montage for this movie because of the holiday and a
family event on Sunday but the next ticket montage by the way will be for a
Mission Impossible fall out I’m so excited for that movie but anyway a lot
of people were excited for ant-man and the wasp and xx MCU flick opened right
where had been expected to open at seventy six point five million so what’s
the problem well first off number of you going into
the weekend we’re like that’s too low don’t worry ant-man and the wasps was
gonna blow that number out of the water be careful when you make predictions
like that also speaking of you know trash talk throughout the entire weekend
leading up to you know the final numbers the trades were saying that ant-man and
the wasp boys over performing right and it would come in at ten million more at
eighty five matching the debut of Doctor Strange in 2016 the trades a little too
eager to kiss up to Disney this time perhaps the downside of everyone trying
too hard to be your friend Disney’s like ixnay on the predictions or the
exhibition’s pay whatever it’s like you’re making us look really bad
uh and happened is that ant-man seems to have
turned his dial too far on Saturday as his audience shrunk by 30 percent from
Friday the movie was unexpectedly front loaded with those hardcore Marvel fans
hitting the multiplex whereas the trades head into their predictions factored in
only a 15 percent decline and it’s also worth noting that that heatwave while it
maintained on the West Coast particularly in Los Angeles were some of
the highest grossing theaters were this weekend in the North West due to some
rain on Friday the heat wave ended just in time for Edmund and the wasp to hit
theaters so only The Incredibles 2 benefited from that and hey Disney’s the
one who decided to split their fortunes or fortune and little smaller fortune
alright so audiences those who did see ant-man the wasp gave it an A – a cinema
score which is actually low for Marvel the lowest MCU cinema score is for the
first Thor with a B+ isn’t that just shocking it goes to show
the strength of the brand that even audiences are reluctant to at least
publicly rain on the marvel parade Thor the dark world has a – and unless that a
stands for awful I just don’t understand that grain that’s crazy we all know that
Marvel has made some B movies but you wouldn’t know it from their cinema
scores and again that’s against strength of the brand when somebody says what did
you think of this Marvel movie nobody from a lot of critics – a lot of
moviegoers wants to say anything negative fascinating they’re like a –
that’s the lowest I’m willing to go I love it that’s um that’s an average by
the way so some people had to of course score lowered it to get that score but
anyway well Feige has taken a bit of a box-office hit this is the MCU slowest
opening since the first ant-man and before that the first Captain America
hmm remember how they fixed Captain America they got new directors I’m just
saying anyway it’s pretty clear especially
after the end credits sequence and ant-man and the wasp that ant-man is
going to be a vital character in Avengers 4 so audiences needed this
refresher this was a short-term loss for hopefully a long-term
gain and while it might not be as big an audience theatrically it will likely do
very well on smaller screens now you might wonder why make a small character
so pivotal pivotal in Avengers 4 well he was a lot of fun in civil war again
different directors right keep that in mind that man was great in Civil War so
I’m very excited to see what the Russo brothers do with him in Avengers 4 so
the only mistake I see here quite frankly is Peyton Reed so bring on
Avengers 4 with the always delightful Paul Rudd and I would actually love an
ant-man and the wasp or you know whatever they want to call it a third
film in this series just with a different director even though because I
didn’t like this film but a lot of the problems I think stemmed from Peyton
Reed just to low energy felt too cheap and not good not enough action they gave
a lot of the way a lot of way in the trailers but it’s Peyton’s read fault
for not giving them enough right but he gave him just enough for the trailers
and he didn’t have enough left over for the movie
so I’m sorry Peyton Reed I saw on Twitter over the weekend he has a lot of
friends who are you know fellow directors I think that’s wonderful I’m
glad there’s such a supportive community evolving amongst directors but be
careful they’re helping friends out and they might inadvertently be pushing
subpar films to help friends out oh sorry
alright so men we have a tale of two movies The Incredibles 2 and Jurassic
world 2 neck-and-neck and their fourth and third weekends respectively
fascinatingly they are the exact inverse in their global breakdowns now Jurassic
world 2 just passed a billion dollars and The Incredibles 2 is not far behind
and interestingly they’ve been going you know they’re neck-and-neck right now
they’ve been going head-to-head for the past couple of weeks and direct they
took they took opposite opposite approaches when it came to dealing with
the World Cup Jurassic world 2 got into theaters just prior right it only has in
fact Japan to go but they do love giant lizards over there and then in a lot of
countries as many of you who’ve been quick to point out in your defense of
The Incredibles 2 which has been slower to build but that’s waiting until the
world’s most popular sporting event everywhere both United States
is over now by the time it’s done The Incredibles two domestic versus foreign
split should be more even like the first film and side note The Incredibles 2 is
not only the highest-grossing animated film of all time now domestically but is
very close to knocking out rogue one to join the all-time top 10 list
domestically as well Disney is eating themselves alive over
there or it’s just more bad news for Star Wars a rogue one I thought was a
great movie though and it just shows you know Disney it’s there just dogpiling
these top 10 lists and they’re knocking themselves out out of out of the
competition so I wonder what that’s like for the cultural the corporate
environment actually over at Disney between the different verticals right
we’ll all become more cutthroat they have to write themselves those nice
little tweets when it’s one of them out does the other with like an opening
weekend or something but I wonder what’s really going on behind the scenes even
animations in the in the mix now to take a live-action down
I’m sure the Kathleen Kennedy and foggy you’re like we don’t need another
vertical in here competing with us but you have one Bob iger’s just laughing
all the way to the bank and maybe the Oval Office all right so that asks for
Jurassic world 2 it’s a real mixed bag over there at Universal they’re like we
can’t get Fox now we have a problem with one of our most our largest franchises
they don’t have a lot over there but they have a couple verticals at
Universal they should be proud of Jurassic the drastic movies fate and
fate of the Furious films which is going to come roaring back to life I predict
with Hobbes and Shaw that look is coming together very nicely not a number of
great headlines over the holiday weekend and then of course they have their
illumination animated movies that do incredibly well Universal which i think
is appropriate for their logo is very much a global brand they have very
strong overseas numbers now some we’ve been talking about the fact that the
30/70 split is not is not great that’s like transformers level you know for for
Jurassic world it’s not a great development however I look back in time
and I saw that that’s always been the split when it comes to this franchise
dating back to the very first entry so actually the 3070 split is not too
much of a problem but what the problem lies is that domestic number it’s likely
going to come in a good 300 million less than the last entry domestically and
that is a real problem 3070 split ain’t so bad as long as those domestic numbers
are strong which was the case with the first drastic world but not the case
this time around hopefully this is a problem that Universal in the Jurassic
team take seriously overall though for both movies time is running out as
they’re entering their end game now speaking of time running out you only
have until the end of this month to enter the my road real short film
competition where I am one of the four judges and we will be giving away a
million dollars worth of prizes plus if you submit your film and get over a
hundred votes on the my road rail web site by July 15th you will get a free
video mic Pro Plus so check out the link down below to see the short films
already entered this year to scope out the competition or vote for some of them
and help one of those filmmakers get a free awesome
microphone now maybe you’re on the fence about entering the my road real
competition maybe you need some inspiration or if we have to get more
aggressive about it kick in the pants well I’ve got something for you
meet Gerard McMurray associate producer of a little movie called Fruitvale
station now we all know what happened to Ryan Coogler and Michael B Jordan but
this guy hasn’t given up either and he just made his theatrical debut as a
director he directed one film before on Netflix but this is his first theatrical
release with the first purge and it did okay opening it number four it isn’t the
lowest three day debut for the franchise you’re getting some idea how agents spin
these things right but for the five day it can hold its head high and with a
moderate 52 percent on Rotten Tomatoes that’s his agent talking that’s not so
bad I wish seen films get much worse that
smack in the middle right McMurray should be able to land another directing
gig he is firmly on the board as a director and if you would someday like
to be a Gerard McMurray you got to get on the board and you do so by making
films short films and entering them in competitions like my road real you gotta
build your resume and this is a great opportunity to do so alright so as for
the overall top 10 movie goers took a hit out on Sicario – ouch
as it fell a shocking 62% in just its second weekend any talk of that becoming
a franchise and there was talk is dead but let’s let some specify a film
franchise because I think there’s clear strength in the Sicario brand I would
consider moving it to a smaller screen to streaming and you know Apple Amazon
uh Hulu maybe also soon-to-be Disney but all these places are looking for the
next big thing one of them should start you know sniffing around Sicario then
mr. Rogers continues to expand his audience and actually moved up a spot to
number nine then in the specialty market sorry to bother you had a very strong /
theater average as it opened in just 16 theaters a nice feather in the cap of
everyone involved especially writer-director boots Riley and his
stars like Heath Stanfield and Tessa Thompson but you know what’s even more
exciting black films started out with like like comedies remember people like
Tyler Perry Malcolm D Lee Tim story built the brand but now I’m moving into
so many exciting different genres quite successfully black you know black film
you’ve had they know biographies horror blockbusters and now I think this is a
big one experimental Indies very exciting I saw some comparisons to
Michelle gondry with this movie and that’s that’s a very big win even if
nobody sees it you know it’s just the perception perception is so important in
Hollywood not just from selling movies to the audience but in building careers
so I think that’s fantastic and as for this coming weekend it looks like Dwayne
Johnson is going to fall short indeed as Adam Sandler’s animated Hotel
Transylvania 3 is expected to easily beat him out at the box office and be
the one to do battle of ant-man and the wasp for first place Wow that’ll be very
interesting but that’s this week’s movie math
for going over the box office with me I look forward to hearing your thoughts
down below and remember the next ticket montage for movie math will be Mission
Impossible fall out and then of course as always you can check out some more

Top 10 Alternate Versions Of Ant-Man

Top 10 Alternate Versions Of Ant-Man


Since Ant-Man first appeared in Tales to Astonish
issue 27 in 1962, there has been three individuals to take up the Ant-Man mantle. The first, Hank Pym, is arguably the character
with the most turbulent history, whereas Scott Lang, the star character of the MCU films,
continues to grow in popularity. There was also Eric O’Grady, the third Ant0Man,
too. Like most other heroes, the character has
also accumulated various versions throughout his tiny adventures, so today, we’re taking
a look at a handful of those with our list of the top 10 alternate versions of Ant-Man. Note that we’re looking at alternates of
both Hank Pym and Scott Lang, but aimed to keep Hank’s other aliases and their alternates
– ie, Giant Man or Yellowjacket variations – off of this list, although sometimes those
lines get a bit blurred with good old Hank. So with all that in mind, let’s jump in! 10 Black Ant
We’re starting off this list with the only Eric O’Grady alternate we’ll be discussing
today – Black Ant. Black ant was a life model decoy of O’Grady’s
who replaced the hero after he died in Secret Avengers issue 23 in 2012. Black Ant appeared in issue 24, sent to join
the Avengers by the Descendants as a double agent – the Descendants being the ones responsible
for O’Grady’s death to begin with. His true identity came out after Black Widow
figured out that he was a robot working for the Descendants. But no one believed her since Black Ant (who
was still operating under the Ant-Man mantle at that time) had saved the Avengers’ lives,
including Hawkeye, so she left the team in protest in issue 32 of the series. Shortly afterwards, the life model decoy switched
his alias to Black Ant, and turned on the Avengers, and he eventually died in conflict
afterwards. But he came back, and resurfaced during the
Secret Empire story arc, initially being a part of Hydra’s Avengers, but switched sides
during the final battle. 9 Scott Lang (Earth 2149)
Zombie Ant-Man! Earth 2149 is also known as the Zombieverse,
which came to be after an alternate version of Sentry punched his way – yes, punched
– into this universe, bringing a disease that turned everyone into a flesh-eating zombie. Scott was summoned by SHEILD as part of a
resistance against the situation. He was presumably sent to fight back the zombies,
but later, the character is seen as part of the zombie hoard going after Magento and his
group of survivors at the Baxter Building. 8 Henry Pym (Earth 12091)
While not much is known of Earth 12091’s Henry Pym, the character is arguably one of
the coolest alternate versions of Ant-Man – at least, aesthetically speaking. He’s a humanoid ant. Henry is part of the Avengers Federation,
a group that consists of Captain America, Scarlet Witch, Wasp, Thor, Vision, Quicksilver,
Hawkeye, and of course, Ant-Man. Wasp also has some anthropomorphic wasp traits. The Earth appears in the limited series Space:
Punisher, in which we follow Frank Castle and his adventures in Space, encountering
all sorts of weird alternates of familiar faces. 7 Henry Pym (Earth 398)
Earth 398 is a reality that was created and warped by Morgan le Fay, altered to exist
in the medieval times. The Avengers still exist, but they believe
themselves to be part of the Queen’s elite guard known as the Queen’s Vengeance. Herny, while technically operating as an alternate
of Goliath, his suit is more of a throwback to his Ant-Man threads minus the antenna. He, too, is a member of the Queen’s Vengeance. Eventually, the Avengers all regain awareness
of what has happened, and Scarlet Witch, with the help of Wonder Man, alters reality back
to normal and defeats Morgan. 6 Lego – Earth 13122
Of course there’s a Lego version! Every hero has a Lego version! Technically part of Earth 13122, Lego Ant-Man
is Scott Lang, and has the exact same origins as the MCU Scott Lang. Where his story deviates though is that he
aided the Avengers in saving the world from Ultron in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Avengers
Reassembled, a series of animated shorts featuring Marvel characters and the Avengers in Lego
form. The premise for this series is geared towards
younger audiences – the Avengers are about to throw a party at Avengers Tower when Captain
America realizes Iron Man is acting weird, and it’s revealed that he’s being controlled
by Ultron with the help of Yellowjacket. 5 Scott Lang (Earth X)
Earth X is also known as Earth 9997 – a world in which everything has been mutated
due to the release of the Terrigen Mists into the atmosphere. This means we get alternates like Black Panther
who is an actual Black Panther. Scott’s transformation isn’t nearly as
cool as that, though, unfortunately. His story, which first appears in Universe
X issue 9 back in 2001, follows him taking refuge in Tony Stark’s factory after his
daughter started to mutate. Later he would take in the mutated daughter
of J Jonah Jameson, aka Man-Wolf, who had been abandoned by her mother after she began
to mutate. It’s also worth noting that Hank Pym exists
on this alternate Earth, but as Giant Man, having previously donned the mantle of Ant-Man
in the past. 4 Scott Lang (Earth TRN348)
Earth TRN348 has been taken over by Doctor Doom, Annihilus and Kang, all of whom had
formed an alliance for world domination. There’s a resistance though, led by the
Fantastic Four, and that’s where this Scott comes into play – he’s one of the members. He also works as an undercover agent for Doom,
who had promised Scott a way to bring his deceased daughter Cassie back to life. Even though Doom had been the one to kill
her. Lang was part of a plan that involved him
impersonating Mr Fantastic to break into Doom’s headquarters, but it failed due to Lang’s
alliance to Doom, causing the Fantastic Four to be stripped of their powers and ultimately
killed. 3 Henry Pym (Earth 9151)
This Pym has quite the tragic demise. So, for starters, Earth 9151 appeared in What
If? Vol 2 issue 25 back in 1991, and featured
a story where the god Set went around slaughtering heroes in a story called What If Set Had Come
to Earth? Only a handful of heroes are left alive as
a resistance, and many more have become mindless drones, including his ‘brides’ – several
female Marvel superheroes who are meant to bear his children. Gross. By the end of it, their resistance fails,
the brides give birth to Set’s children – WHO THEN EAT THEM – and the world is
consumed by the Children of Set. How does Pym fit in? Well, he witnesses the death of his ex-wife
Janet only to be eaten by Set himself. Needless to say, not the best way to go. 2 Herni Le Pym – Earth 311
Henri is from Earth 311, also known as the 1602 universe, which is set during the year
1602. Mutants are known as the witchbreed, and are
considered to be devil worshipers and are hunted down. Henri, who is French, is blackmailed by Baron
Victor Octavius to try to find a cure for his hybrid octopus state. Octavius had taken Janette hostage. Pym was forced to use the blood of witchbreeds,
but before he can cure Octavius, he fully transforms into his octopus state and goes
mad, so Pym uses the elixir he had crafted, goes big, and steps on Octavius, ending his
threat once and for all. 1 Pincer
Pincer is Scott Land from Earth 9907 – a timeline in which Red Skull has won World
War 2, and Doctor Doom is now a totalitarian leader over the entirety of Earth, known as
Dictator Doom. Pincer first appears in issue 10 of A-Next,
as one of the antagonists sided with Dictator Doom. And he’s a piece of work – he’s a sadistic
madman with a stutter, who murdered his daughter at Doom’s request when the girl refused
to swear allegiance to him. When a different generation of Avengers cross
over into their universe, Scott discovers this version of his daughter goes by the name
of Stinger, and he gets all jazzed to murder her once more, but this time around, she defeats
him, and the character dies in issue 11 of the series. There we have it, friends! Which version of Ant-Man is your favorite? Are there versions of Hank Pym under his other
