That's a pretty set.
@themoviefanatic Well archive footage or a flashback scene. I doubt she's going to show up in the present day like in Cap 2.
Josh gave this a Thumbs Up

Nice, nostalgia!

@undeadslayer4 We don't know that they aren't, but with an ever-expanding cast in the MCU, they're going to have to start being selective about who appears in what movie. ALL of the Avengers and ALL of the Guardians in one movie might feel too crowded.

They should be mine because I don't have either film on BluRay yet!

Yeah, if Thanos is indeed the Big Bad in Avengers 3 (and really can you see them putting that off any further, given that by then it will have been like 6 years since he was introduced), then it makes a lot of sense to have Drax play a pivotal role.
She looks great.

Sounds interesting. I wonder if it will involve the Death of CA arc?
Josh wrote a comment about the news item Michael Douglas Will Not Wear the Ant-Man Costume
@undeadslayer4 Why not? That's the story Marvel has written for the film. Ant-Man will be Scott Lang, and Pym will be the older, retired, original Ant-Man. It's not a movie about Pym, it's a movie about Lang.

@undeadslayer4 Because Douglas is playing Ant-Man as a retired superhero. The true Ant-Man in the film is going to be Paul Rudd's Scott Lang, not Douglas' Hank Pym. Presumably Black Panther will be focused on T'Challa as a man in his prime, not as an older king. Although that could be an interesting story to tell, I doubt Marvel will go that route with Black Panther's first entry into the MCU.
It's a little more interesting that it's going to be a sequel series rather than a redo of the same material.
@themoviefanatic Agreed. Iron Man 3 is probably the best of the three films. It's the most fun and the one in which everyone gets the character right. I loved the Shane Black-iness of it.
Looks like Vision!
All good names he suggests. I'd throw Anna Kendrick, Jane Lynch, Samira Wiley, and Aubrey Plaza in the mix too.

I'm not surprised. He's retired. I think we probably will see Hank Pym in the Ant-Man suit, it will just be a younger Pym in flashbacks.
Probably through some kind of archive footage.

I think that Black Panther, like Thor, can start out as a prince and it not be a true origin tale. Unlike Captain America, Iron Man, etc. with these characters you're not seeing them gain super powers and transform into a costumed hero. Rather, we the audience are entering their world that is already established, one in which their abilities are already at play and we are given enough information to understand the world, but not led by the hand through the character's entire young life and formation.

Black Panther could be very easy to do in a similar vein as Thor, exploring T'Challa's relationship with his father and their conflict with the outside world seeking to exploit Wakanda's resources (it could even be AIM or Hydra attempting to gain a foothold in the country), and T'Challa's eventual taking over the title of Black Panther. It's sort of a shame they can't use Storm, though, as she plays such an important role in his story.

@brandonheat That is an interesting idea. Washington is definitely too old to play T'Challa, but he could still be in the movie.
They should probably call it good with Iron Man as a trilogy, and keep Downey around as Stark going forward in a much smaller, Nick Fury-like role as a sort of Avengers overseer, not an active team member. They'd have a much easier time convincing him to come back (and for less money) if he could show up for a few days, shoot his scenes without having to do much, and go home.
Oh man, Moss or McAdams would both be great choices.
