    Is there anything we can do to get “Ant-Man” renamed as “Ant-Man and The Wasp”? Cause ye _know_ Janet’ll be in there. I want the other kind of marriage equality too.

  • John W

    It depends. Is it the Hank Pym version or Scott Lang version?
    I’m holding out hope that Whedon will introduce her in Avengers 2.

    They always said SDCC is the nerd prom, I say just skip over to the nerd keggar (whatever that would be)

    Matheson-related: The tribute short story collection inspired by his work is called “He Is Legend”. Naturally.

    And we get another step closer to a Stargate/My Little Pony crossover. . .

    Am I the only person who thinks Tilda Swinton should play Dream in a Sandman movie?

    Or failing that, David Bowie as Dream?

  • odango atama

    I almost wrote Tilda Swinton to play David Bowie. LOL

    I more expected that it would be a Wonderbolts logo that the pilots would wear, but awesome nonetheless!

  • totz the plaid

    Bowie is Lucifer, or if he’s too old to fill the part now, Tilda is Lucifer.

    The character design was explicitly and specifically modeled after Bowie.

  • Jamie Jeans

    Oh joy, oh wow, the Ant-Man script is done… I am overjoyed beyond belief…

    Seriously, Ant-Man? He’s the Aqua-Man of the Marvel universe! Where’s my Heroes for Hire movie with Collen Wing, Misty Knight, Power Man, and Iron Fist? That’s a movie I want!

    I want a Damage Control movie, maybe timed to release with Avengers 2, so that it covers the same aspects, but from the little guy’s perspective

  • Robert Vary

    And a quick search on Fanfiction.net… yup, shows three MLP/SG1 crossovers, three with Atlantis, and one for Universe.

  • odango atama

    Yes. Mind blown. Either casting choice would rock it. Bowie is not old. He’s still sexy.

  • http://arewerobots.libsyn.com/ DarthBetty

    I feel like that still makes sense.

  • totz the plaid

    Is Bowie still sexy? Of course!

    Is he old? Sorry, but yes he is. He’s still amazing looking, but he’s starting to show his age.

    The VERTIGO Lucifer is supposed to be eternally youthful looking, and as awesome as Bowie is, he doesn’t look the part anymore.

    All that said, I don’t want a Sandman movie. The story is too long and detailed and brilliant to make into a film unless they just compress the first two volumes down into a single movie, and even then, unless it’s made by Peter Jackson or Guillermo del Toro, I don’t trust Hollywood to make it work.

    There are a lot of awesome things that I don’t want to be made into movies, simply because Hollywood wouldn’t handle them correctly. Sandman is one of them.

  • odango atama

    I propose all this hypothetically, but a better solution would be an original story created for the screen. I can still dream of great things.
    Personally, I like older men.
