The first thing that has me jumping up and down, the return of Hayley Atwell as the amazing Agent Peggy Carter. When I heard that Agents of SHIELD was gonna take a long hiatus for the winter, i was miffed. But when I heard Marvel and ABC were gonna fill that spot with Agent Carter I was so excited. Bringing us the behind the scenes story of SHIELD’s beginnings with Agent Carter, Howard Stark, and apparently a living Jarvis. I couldn’t be more excited. Besides bringing back the amazing actress who brought this icon to life ( i can say that because without Peggy Carter we wouldn’t have Sharon Carter aka Agent 13), we also have the return of Dominic Cooper as Howard Stark. With a cast being round out by Enver Gjokaj (Dollhouse fam), Chad Michael Murray, and Lyndsy Fonseca (who played a spy on CW’s Nikita). I’m thinking this may be a one time event for us to see Carter and her gang, but I wouldn’t mind a small peek into their world every so often…..SO OVER THE MOON. Are you?

So the Hollywood Reporter is stating that Michael Pena maybe added to the cast of Marvel’s AntMan with Paul Rudd and yesterday’s announced Michael Douglas. This would be exciting news because it means that the cast is further coming together. As we can see Marvel is really putting a strong effort into getting their movies done with the schedule that they have set. With Winter Soldier(4-4-2014) and Guardians of the Galaxy coming this summer. Marvel does not appear to be slowing down. Michael Pena can currently be seen in American Hustle
Hollywood Reporter:Michael Pena in negotiable for AntMan
So….Michael Douglas has been cast as Hank Pym. Anyone who reads comics knows that Hank Pym was the first Ant-Man. This more then likely means that Paul Rudd will be playing Scot Lang. Scott was the second Ant-Man who stole the persona and technology from Hank. He later became an Avenger and a hero. Ant-Man is slated for release July 31,2015 as the launch of Marvel’s Phase 3 after Avengers:Age of Ultron.
