Hawkman and Ant-Man


I love that Michelle Pfeiffer has been cast in the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp as Janet Van Dyne, the original Wasp. After this, Nicole Kidman in the now shooting Aquaman, Tommy Lee Jones in Captain America: The First Avenger and Michael Keaton's excellent turn as The Vulture, I am wondering what other Batman alumnus we can see re-cast in new comic roles.  My vote is for Danny DeVito as M.O.D.O.K. (you know you want it).

Am I the only one to be sad it's not Kathleen Turner as Janet Van Dyne? Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner have made at least 3 movies together and had, IMHO, excellent screen chemistry.

I like Danny as M.O.D.O.K.

Nah! I can't honestly say I do, Ross. I'm dead certain he'd be much better cast as Caesar "Big C" Cicero (opposite whoever was cast as a Caucasian Kingpin in the next Spidey sequel).

Yeah, we're not going to be getting Michael Clarke Duncan back as Wilson Fisk. As Tom Bergeron once put it, he's a little hard to book these days.

But hey, how about Alicia Silverstone as Black Canary?

As to this cover, I really enjoy it. Two heroes with animal themes teaming up in a situation that has absolutely nothing to do with that fact. Plus, I think that Hank would be all over helping Carter with this situation.

In New Amalgam Comics, these two were mixed to make Wingspan, real name Carter Pym, partner of Wasp Girl (Janet Van Dyne/Kendra Saunders), and co-creator of Metoltron (Metallo/Ultron).

I think Danny DeVito as M.O.D.O.K (or M.O.D.O.C) would be cool and he would really enjoy it especially if they motion captured him.

This was originally a Hawkman and the Atom correct?

Ross said...

it's from Atom #7, Hawkman was a guest star - they eventually shared the title though.

Danny would be great as a scenery chewing MODOK.

I think Matt "Nardole" Lucas would be more ideal as MODOK.

Nardole??? Who the frig is Nardole?

Cary Comic said...

The Dr. Who equivalent of Robin and/or Jimmy Olsen.

Bob Greenwade said...

To clarify Cary C.'s response: Nardole was one of the Doctor's companions on "Doctor Who" during this past season, after being first seen in the 2015 Christmas special.

How about Amazo and the Taskmaster vs. Magnus the Robot Fighter?

I read the original title as a kid but did not remember whose title it was since at time I was lucky to find any two books in order from discount place for the money I collected returning bottles.
