FAN-ticizing About the Villains Ant Man Should Face

The villains I believe should get the spotlight in Ant-Man and how it could connect to the rest of MCU. WARNING, CAPTAIN AMERICA TWS SPOILERS AHEAD.

So as we all know Edgar Wright is bringing Hank Pym and Scott Lang to the big screen next year. What we don't know is who they will be facing. So I thought about it and decided on who I would want in the film and why. 

To start with I would like to see Hank Pym face off against Egghead in the 60's. Through a series of battles Egghead eventually gives up and fakes his own death with an explosion. Years later Elihas Starr (Egghead) meats fellow scientist George Tarleton ( the future M.O.D.O.K) and they work on creating a team of like minded individuals to conquer Pym. To do this they take the remembers of AIM and start following up on the ideas that Aldrich Killian put on hiatus in favor of Extremis. 

During this timeScott Lang will have suited up as Ant Man and begun his super-hero career. 

The experiments that the two scientist work on the most are code named Blizzard, Whirlwind and Swarm. These experiment use technology stolen from various scientist which were leaked with all of   S.H.I.E.L.D's past at the end of CA:TWS. The whirlwind and blizzard projects being based from combat suits shield had designed and Swarm coming from Pym himself. These projects would create three villains that are named after the projects. 

Finally, in the climax or leading up to it, Tarleton will have been injured and,using designs stolen from Arnim Zola, will create a robotic body that will allow him to stay alive. 

While I'm not sure how any of these characters would look (M.O.D.O.K especially) I do like this idea and at least hope that A.I.M are the main villains of this future CBM. 

So what did you guys think of my ideas? Tell me any criticisms or additions you have in the comments below.

Blizzard was on Agents of Shield. So that part wont work. Whirlwinds a mutant so they gotta change his backstory but no big deal there. I really just want to see Radioactive Man done right. Hes an excellent villain. Powerful enough to take on Thor, and hes a scientist. Fits right into Ant Mans movie verse.

Didn't know about blizzard but that doesn't matter to much. Kinda wish I'd thought of radioactive man myself now.

Blizzard could still show up though...

I just can't imagine how they would pass off egghead without hysterical laughter from the audience
WYLEEJAY - 3/30/2014, 6:27 PM
True Blizzard could show still. He is a Iron Man rogue more than anything though. What about Ulysses
Klaw? He could tie into Wakanda too?

I hate to say it because I want to support everything that takes place in the MCU, but I just can't see this being successful.

I feel like the general audience will see the name Ant-Man and just laugh. I hope I'm wrong, but I cam already hear people at my job saying, "Ant-Man? Really? They're really stretching now, aren't they? Whats next, Honey I Shrunk the Kids Man?"

Like I said, i hope Im wrong, but this could be the movie that starts the decline in CBM's. People were worried about GotG? Wait until the general audience hears about this....

@CorndogBurglar: I think that Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy will see success similar to The Incredible Hulk and The First Avenger. Not big successes but, make enough to earn a profit and make back their budgets.

That being said, I'm pretty sure Green Lantern already gave us Egghead ;) Personally, Egghead and Modok are terrible villains IMO and I think the villain will either be Hank Pym (probably not but, can you imagine the chemistry and banter Michael Douglas and Paul Rudd will have?) or Whirlwind. I'm rooting for Whirlwind and maybe he'll have ties to Aim or Hydra. That way we get his powers and I think that you can still have a formidable foe for Ant-Man while still maintaining the Heist film feel the movie will already have since Scott Lang will be the main villain.

Guardians will not just make a profit but it will make real money. There's not a doubt in my mind it will exceed 750 million. Remember it's coming after Cap. That momentum will cary into Guardians. Antman, who I've never liked, will also do well. Maybe not 750 well but it will do well.

I actually expect GOTG to be Marvel's most modest hit...or biggest failure if you look at it that way. It will also probably be Gunn's biggest hit.

Radioactive Man could be badass supersoldier in the next Hulk film since he cn absorb the gamma radiation and turn him back into Banner

The plot is too simple. Bad guy gets three guys, put them in costumes. Fight! Lang wins. Film is over.
Pebbles - 3/31/2014, 4:06 PM
You're right. I probably should have put more thought into the overall plot but I was trying to figure out which villains I think would work in the film.
If I had included more of an overall plot it would have been Lang infiltrating AIM to retrieve tech to save his daughters life. I also personally believe that Douglas is actually playing the villain in the film who is masquerading as Pym or (more likely) Pym has a mental breakdown due to over exposure to Pym particles which would give more emotion to this fans mall idea.
