MICHAEL DOUGLAS CONFIRMED TO RETURN FOR ‘ANT-MAN AND THE WASP’!
Michael Douglas has taken to Instagram to confirm that he will return as Dr. Hank Pym in ‘Ant-man and The Wasp’. He also confirmed that he will begin shooting his scenes for the movie in July. The movie was previously reported to start production in June!
Hank Pym’s struggle with his ‘son’ Ultron is one of the greatest psychologically grounded rivalries to come out of Marvel comics.
It’s a dramatic and intricate break down of Hank’s inferiority complex and bi-polar depression, coupled with an extravagant and threatening android personification of megalomania with an Oedipus Complex.
And Joss Whedon thinks that having one of Tony Stark’s Iron Man suits (with JARVIS controlling it?) go out of control and evil is a fitting replacement?
Joss has already expressed his interest in Ultron by stating that he loves how he’s just “really pissed off”. Truly he understands this deep and complex character. So glad he gets to bring him to film.
Thanks, Mr Whedon, for denying Hank, a founding Avenger (as well as creator of alternate universes and Scientist Supreme) of one of his greatest achievements and greatest failures - the crux of his character.
And thank you further for unloading it on a character that has already seen the most emphasis in the MCU - you might as well re-name the Avengers “Iron Man and Friends”.
Joss, I’m sincere when I say this: Go fuck yourself, buddy.
“In the aftermath of Captain America: Civil War, Scott Lang grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope Van Dyne and Dr. Hank Pym with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past”
Here, i am using @sortinghatchats ingenious method of the two tiers of houses idea- your primary being your “why” and your secondary being your “how.” Because they have already sorted quite a few marvel characters, I’ll just stick with the ones it doesn’t seem they’ve sorted yet. Also, disclaimer: I haven’t seen many of these movies in a while so my memory isn’t perfect lmao
He has a raging ravenclaw secondary. He’s best at planning, using tools to succeed. When he breaks into Hank Pym’s home, stealing the Ant Man suit, all of that was intellect, using the tools available to him.
His primary is definitely loyalist- Dr. Pym gives a reason for Scott to help him- to get Cassie back. Everything comes back to Cassie. This could be a slytherin “me and mine” sort of intense personal loyalty, but it could also be a Hufflepuff loyalty who happens to prioritize certain people over others. Back before he went to jail, it’s mentioned that the heist he pulls revealing how big companies have been stealing from the people, and then giving back to those people with that money, which seems more like a general loyalty to me, like a Hufflepuff. I think the best explanation for his houses might be slytherin primary with hufflepuff primary model. When it comes down to it, what’s most important is Cassie, but when he’s not worried about her, he can live in his group-bonding, lighthearted hufflepuff primary model.
I was surprised Inky and Kat hadn’t sorted him, considering he’s one of the earliest Avengers? But that’s ok cuz I had a fun time with sorting him myself :)
Thor is a huge huffledor. He’s got his community going with Sif and the Warriors 3; he insists on going back to Asgard even after it’s supposedly fallen in Ragnarok not because it’s the right thing to do anymore, but because Asgard is home. And because, as Odin reminds him, Asgard is not a place, it’s a people. But I think the most defining part of his hufflepuff primary is that he keeps letting loki back in after each repeated fault, because loki is family, despite his flaws. It’s not necessarily that he forgives loki, but a defining part of hufflepuff primary is that they are most likely to give their enemies 2nd and third chances, and are likely to keep someone in their community despite their (many) flaws.
He is definitely a Gryffindor secondary though, in the way he charges everything and wears his emotions on his sleeve. Deception is definitely not Thor’s strong suit, unlike Loki.
Dr. Stephen Strange
I’ll start with his very obvious Ravenclaw secondary. Strange admits that he studied his way to the top of his professional medical field, and when he learns about magic, we see him studying that nonstop too.
In the beginning of the movie we see that Strange is very ambitious and self-centered, which would typically make for a Slytherin Primary. He doesn’t operate on people to save lives, he does it for his social standing, to be the best. However, after he loses his hands and tries to get them healed, his world is turned upside down with this whole new, abstract way of thinking. Not only does he realize that the world is not what it seems, but he kinda grows up and realizes that his slytherin primary way of life was selfish and wrong (not that being selfish is a bad thing, but Strange was kind of an ass with it tbh). This points to a Ravenclaw Primary, one that originally held a Slytherin system of beliefs. Im still not entirely sure what his motivation for saving the world was (I’ll have to watch the movie again), but he was willing to sacrifice himself in the end to do it, where his original slytherin way of thinking would not have even considered it.
We didn’t get to see much of him here and I reserve the right to change my mind after the Black Panther movie but I’m thinking Gryffindor secondary, the way he charged at his father’s killer seemingly without a second thought. This fight for him is also very personal- “The Winter Soldier killed my father so he must pay.” So, Slytherin primary? When he realizes Bucky is innocent of killing his father, he stops his pursuit immediately, despite knowing that he is not innocent of many things, as Zemo, the real culprit points out. Because Bucky was innocent of the crime against his father, Bucky’s crimes are now no longer personal to T'Challa, and T'Challa no longer feels the need to seek vengeance upon him.
So T'Challa is a Slytherdor but I have the right to change my mind after seeing the black panther movie
One thing I found fascinating about Tom Holland’s Spider-Man and Toby McGuire’s Spider-Man was their difference in houses, so I will be talking about both of them. Tony McGuire’s Spider-Man is very obviously a Slytherin Primary. He starts being Spider-Man not because it’s the right thing to do, but because he owes it to his dead uncle Ben. He fights for the city because it’s His, as seen clearly in Spider-Man 3 during the parade in his honor. And, quite honestly, he loves the attention.
Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, however, is definitely a Gryffindor Primary. His famous line in ca:cw “when you can do the things I can, but you don’t, and then the bad things happen, they happen because of you” is a very Gryffindor sort of thing to say. I think this also alludes to the responsibility he feels for his uncle’s death, but I do think that was less of a loyalty thing and more of an “I should have done the right thing” thing. Peter Parker in sm:h continues to peruse the bad guys and stand up for the little guys because it’s the right thing to do and he’s even willing to abandon his friends and the girl he loves to do it.
As far as secondary’s go, Holland’s Spider-Man is a Ravenclaw, shown clearly with his homemade suit and webshooter formula, how he waits to gather info on the bad guys before going in to attack. McGuire’s Spider-Man is a Gryffindor Secondary. When Ben dies, he doesn’t hesitate, he just rages after Ben’s supposed killer. He does this again and again with all the bad guys he meets, though there is some Ravenclaw involved like when he tries to gather info on Venom. A loose model perhaps?
BONUS: Wade Wilson
Ok I know he’s not part of the marvel universe BUT I love him a lot ok??? While I was reeeeeaaalllyy tempted to sort him as a gryffindor secondary, considering he has that daring bravery (or recklessness) characteristic of one, i actually think he’s better suited as a ravenclaw secondary. His gryffindor is probably just a model if he has gryffindor at all. When he goes to get this shady cancer cure, it’s not done out of the charging bravery of a gryffindor; this was well thought-out, pros and cons clearly made. His making of the deadpool suit was clearly a ravenclaw process, just as Peter Parker’s making of the web fluid was. There are probably other examples but I think these are the biggest ones. As far as primaries, I’m thinking slytherin? He goes after Ajax for revenge, not because it’s right, and his whole reason for going to Ajax in the first place was for Vanessa. But after the mutation when he becomes “ugly” he’s afraid she or really anyone won’t accept him. He befriends the old lady Al because she’s blind and can’t see his ugliness and keeps Weasel as a friend because he’s known him for forever. These people he knows he can confide in, although whether he feels personally loyal to them as a Slytherin is a bit more unsure.

Scott was so nervous. You’d finally agreed to go on a date with him and he decided he’d cook for you. After weeks of seeing you whenever he went to see his daughter at school, he finally worked up the courage to ask you out. You rejected him a few times, saying simply that you had no time and always rain checking. Magically, you accepted on a whim one day and decided if he’s that interested in you to ask you out everytime he sees you, you might as well give him a chance.
He’d ask what you preferred for a date, and you wanted a home-cooked meal. You didn’t want to fool around with extravagant dinners or movies like the old days. You wanted something intimate, something where it was easy to get to know the person. A place where you both could be comfortable.
You weren’t too dressed up either, something cute and comfy. Your hair fell in loose waves and your makeup was popping. You arrived at Scott’s house right on time, and he couldn’t have been more nervous. He was physically shaking. He was just glad the Dr. Pym got him his own luxury apartment.
“Hey, Scott!” You smile as he opened the door. Your smile caught his attention and he couldn’t help but smile back at you.
“Hey, Y/N. You look beautiful.” And he meant every word of that. Your skirt hugged your curves, and he swore your highlight blinded him the second you smiled up at him.
“Thanks. Can I come in?” You chuckled. He cursed internally once he realized he had left you in the cold outside. He moved to the side and motioned for you to come in.
“I hope you like spaghetti.” He laughed slightly, but he was serious. He wasn’t used to cooking like this before, his life was mainly take out and leftovers from whatever he could find. But this time, he had a girl over. A girl who he’d had his eyes on for a while now, and he wasn’t going to fuck this up. It had to be perfect.
And it was, at first. Scott was really funny, and you were lowkey upset you didn’t accept his offer at first. He was so sweet, and he could actually cook. You were deadass about to call your mama and tell her you found the one once he told you he was making dessert.
The oven beeped and he excused himself to get the desert. Scott came back carrying this large pan filled with what looked like marshmallows and brownies. “What the hell is that?!” You nearly jumped out of your seat from excitement. This man was probably trying to give you diabetes.
“Rocky Road Brownies. My ex makes them for my daughter all the time, and I wanted to try them. I gotta admit this is my first time.” He chuckles and sets them on the table to chill. The smell is absolutely heavenly and it took way too much self-control for you not to jump up, grab the pan and run home. But you sat back and continued your previous conversation with him until he served you.
Just as you expected, the first bite was heavenly. You couldn’t stop the moan that escaped your mouth. You were surprised when you felt a crunch in your mouth. You thought nothing of it, immediately thinking it was probably part of the crust of the brownie or marshmallow. After your second bite, it began to get hot. “Are you hot, Scott?” He looked up from his third brownie and shook his head. He saw the sweat accumulating on your forehead.
“Whoa, are you okay?”
“I, I don’t know, I, it hurts to breathe.” You began to breathe heavily and Scott stood up and pushed the table back. He handed you his cup and you drank some, but ended up coughing it up, complaining silently that you still couldn’t breathe. He thought you were choking at first, but once he tried to push on your stomach, you pushed him away and pointed to your face. It was swollen and red, and Scott had never seen anything like it. He picked you up quickly, and ran you out of his apartment, disregarding the elevator and flying down the stairs. He drove you to the hospital, flying past the lanes, and praying that he wouldn’t get pulled over, not now at least.
Fuck, why didn’t he call the cops?!
When you both finally arrived at the ER, nurses wheeled you off while he was pushed off. Scott ran his hand through his hair and cursed. The one time he finally gets a chance at love again he kills the girl. He can never catch a break.
“Are you Scott?” A doctor walked up to him, and he snapped his head toward her. He nodded and she sighed. “Y/n is fine! She’s resting.”
“What the hell happened?! She was eating one minute and the next I look up, she’s sweating and swollen.”
“She has a peanut allergy, Mr. Lang. It was very severe, and you’re very lucky you got here when you did.”
“Oh my God. Can I see her?” The doctor led the way, and he thanked her. There you were in your gown, scrolling through the same 15 channels over and over again. “Y/n, I am so sorry!”
“Scott!” He ran up to you and hugged you by surprise.
“I’m so fucking sorry! Please don’t hate me, I didn’t know!”
“I should have told you. It’s not your fault, babe.” You rubbed his back and he pulled back.
“You sure? You could’ve died, Y/N! This is serious.”
You shook your head and pulled him closer. “Just make it up to me another time, without nuts, and I’ll forget this ever happened.” And with a smirk and a kiss on his cheek, he nodded and the rest was history.
Scott never fed you nuts again and was actually very cautious of what you ate. Even at your wedding, he wouldn’t even allow the smell of nuts to be in the air. Nothing was gonna hurt his baby.
ESTPs are often natural athletes; they easily navigate their physical environment and are typically highly coordinated. They like to use this physical aptitude in the pursuit of excitement and adventure, and they often enjoy putting their skills to the test in risky or even dangerous activities. The ESTP’s focus is action in the moment. They are engaged with their environments and solve practical problems quickly. ESTPs are excellent in emergencies, when they can apply their logical reasoning to situations where immediate action is necessary. Long-term goals are less interesting to the ESTP, who prefers to see tangible results in the moment.
Dr. Hank Pym INTP [THE LOGICIAN]
INTPs present a cool exterior but are privately passionate about reason, analysis, and innovation. They seek to create complex systems of understanding to unify the principles they’ve observed in their environments. Their minds are complicated and active, and they will go to great mental lengths trying to devise ingenious solutions to interesting problems. The INTP is typically non-traditional, and more likely to reason out their own individual way of doing things than to follow the crowd. The INTP is suspicious of assumptions and conventions, and eager to break apart ideas that others take for granted. INTPs are merciless when analyzing concepts and beliefs, and hold little sacred. They are often baffled by other people who remain loyal to ideology that doesn’t make logical sense.
Hope van Dyne “Wasp” ISTJ [THE INSPECTOR]
ISTJs are responsible organizers, driven to create and enforce order within systems and institutions. They are neat and orderly, inside and out, and tend to have a procedure for everything they do. Reliable and dutiful, ISTJs want to uphold tradition and follow regulations. ISTJs are steady, productive contributors. Although they are Introverted, ISTJs are rarely isolated; typical ISTJs know just where they belong in life, and want to understand how they can participate in established organizations and systems. They concern themselves with maintaining the social order and making sure that standards are met.
Darren Cross “Yellowjacket” ESFJ [THE SUPPORTER]
The ESFJ is often striving for approval that they feel they deserve, but have not properly received. Out of the seven deadly sins they would best represent Envy. They are usually preoccupied with being underestimated or not being appreciated for their work in the past and are now out to simply get your approval or to force you to approve. Their Fe is dominant so, although types like ESTP and ENTP may be emotionally manipulative that is nothing like the emotional manipulation of the Fe dominate ESFJ and ENFJ. These Fe dominates can stab you in the back like no other, often making you feel much more violated, because they got you right in the feels. You were led to trust them and they simply used you. Just as they do this and can seem cold and deceitful, there is a huge heart breaking underneath, just wanting to be loved and appreciated. (fictionalcharactermbti, mbti villains)
Sam Wilson “Falcon” ENFP [THE ADVOCATE]
ENFPs are people-centered creators with a focus on possibilities and a contagious enthusiasm for new ideas, people and activities. Energetic, warm, and passionate, ENFPs love to help other people explore their creative potential. ENFPs are typically agile and expressive communicators, using their wit, humor, and mastery of language to create engaging stories.
ENFPs prize individuality and often consider the pursuit of happiness to be the highest priority in life, both for themselves and for others. They place great importance on personal freedom and self-expression, and want to be able to go wherever inspiration leads.
Let’s take a look back at that time when Hank Pym risked his life growing again, while knowing it could be extremely dangerous for him…
… or that time when he worked on helping a near stranger and new fellow Avenger who was slowly dying due to her strange mutation…
… or that time where he believed he had found Jan’s essence in underspace… but held back from bringing her back because it would actually harm her…
… or his typical way of dealing with supervillains…
… or how he always looked after the Avengers Academy kids, and want to protect them… (seriously, read Avengers Arena no13… he’s the only one who did anything and everything he could to find his students)
… or how he opened shelters for women and children victims of abuse…
… or how he risked his neck to save Matt Murdock’s life while he was contaminated with Doom nanobots…
… or again when he helped Bruce Banner deal with fighting off the Terrigen Mist spreading around the planet…
… yeah, looks so much like a jerk to me… </sarcasm>
