@ObiWanShinobi As you say, it was clear that the scope of the Marvel Universe between 2006 and now has vastly changed. It seems as though they had no set direction at the start and things seemingly came together as the films progressed. After the Phase 1 films were complete and The Avengers, which was little more than an experiment at the time, had seen the success it had it was clear how they'd expand the universe they'd created. Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D was created solely to keep the bridge between the films following The Avengers. By now the intended plan they had for Ant-Man so long ago is irrelevant. And at one point I do recall reading something to the effect of Wright's film not having the continuity of the rest of the films as it is set to begin their Phase 3.

Ant-Man was at one point in the comics the creator of Ultron. As it stands, this has changed for the second Avengers film given the fact that Ant-Man had never gotten off of the ground. Wright was still attached to his vision that clearly contradicted what Marvel was planning to do. It just appears to be a case that he was unwilling to conform to the new agenda set by Marvel's "singular" vision. In the end, no matter how right he was for the film, parting ways was probably the best thing for both parties. Even James Gunn commented on the fact that he'd noticed the tension between the two siting that there was a collective sense of relief when the parties parted ways. So it's also clear that the issues surrounding the production of this movie are not anything new or abrupt. There had been trouble in paradise for quite some time.

That's an awfully skewed list. Don't know that I agree with it or the placement of some of these films anyway.
It's clear they're going for the comedic approach with this movie.
@pack-rulz1978 The thing about this is in approach the entire DC Universe is being made an entity unto itself. These characters coexist in the same world under the same rules and principles. One catastrophic event, much like the comic book arcs, is enough to draw these characters out and together. It can very well work in a similar way as it applies to their animated films. The Marvel plan worked for Marvel because they were introducing and building interests in characters that weren't as popular as the roster DC is working with. Good story telling makes the difference. If it is a well written story arc to this blueprint there is no reason that it can't work successfully without vesting in characters that otherwise aren't as popular or interesting as the main hitters of the DCU. Just my opinion though.
@undeadslayer4 What do you mean? If this is indeed a statue it could be something sculpted in good will faith by those who didn't see him as a threat for saving the world from Zod's destruction. That aside, in terms of the suit, it was already stated that there would be slight alterations to his costume whatever those may be. It isn't like he has something that he can't tailor himself. It's some sort of mesh material not unlike anything that can be stitched on earth. I'm sure if they should address the slight changes it may be a matter of his own personal style wearing the suit now that he has chosen earth to protect. I doubt there would be any major tailoring to it. And, frankly, it may not even bring much notice. But Superman as a character is JUST like everyone else when it comes to clothing. He puts his pants on one leg at a time and it is always interchangeable. It just isn't taken advantage of too often.
