Firestorm and Black Goliath

I read with interest that Laurence Fishburne is going to portray Bill Foster in the upcoming Ant-Man and The Wasp.  Will he be there in a professional capacity only, or is there a chance that we will see his super-heroic side?  Fishburn may be a bit too old an out of shape these days, but Marvel has demonstrated their ability to de-age actors for flashback sequences, so maybe they will surprise us.

Re: Lawrence Fishburne as Black Goliath.

If Samuel L. Jackson can play a more convincing Nick Fury than David Hasselhoff, anything is possible. ;-)

Re: today's cover.

Kudos for digging up Atom-Smasher! I completely forgot Marvel had created a super-villainous version, long before DC's superheroic version. The latter obviously having overshadowed the former for the last three decades!

Hope to see Firestorm meet Captain MarVell on a future cover!

They didn't cover how Ant-Man learned he could do the Giant-Man thing in "Civil War", so that could be part of Ant-Man/Wasp, with Foster being a contemporary of Pym's that tried to use the Pym Particles after Hank retired after losing Jan but never went public because S.H.E.I.L.D. wasn't ready for a Black Goliath.

Great cover Ross. A really unique team-up! BLACK GOLIATH is an underrated character. How about this ATOM-MASHER VS CAPTAIN ATOM.

P.S. Whomever it is that keeps posting SJW type comments here should move on. This is a great site for true comic fans, not politics.

One of my favorite Black Goliath stories was the one in which Ben Grimm pointed out that Black Goliath was kind of a silly name and suggested he change his name to Giant-Man instead.

With everything old being new again, it would be appropriately retro for Bill Foster to permanently re-adopt his first superhero-nym.
