Ant-Man: Peyton Reed's Spoilers, Pym Particles, and What I Hope Might Happen

I am so excited for Ant-Man... Ant-Man...  Ant-Man...  Ant-Man...

     With the Marvel movies consistently being great, I am very much looking forward to seeing Ant-Man.  So much so, that I've been far more excited for it than I was for Avengers: Age of Ultron.  Sure, I was really disappointed when Edgar Wright left the project as he has an incredible eye for directing comic book movies as seen with Scott Pilgrim vs The World, but honestly Peyton Reed's trailer cuts look to be good enough.  Plus, there was the ruling that Wright still gets credited with writing, which is amazing in itself.

     Considering that both Wright and Reed are speaking on good terms about the project should give people hope that this will turn out great.  A part of me believes this will be a movie that's more like Guardians of the Galaxy than the Avengers, which will be a great thing.  Keep the story small and meaningful, pun not intended, and don't let it become one of those stories that get too big like Age of Ultron did, not everything needs to be world changing- and really there are far too many fate of the world stories.


     Ant-Man has all kinds of awesome already- a tiny marketing campaign, a get girls interested in STEM fields contest called the "Ant-Man Micro-Tech Challenge", and possible "spoilers" tweeted by the director.

The Director's spoiler!  I sincerely hope this'll be the Stan Lee cameo...
     So I'm wondering if the Lego Hank Pym is either the Pym of yesteryear, maybe from flashbacks or a prologue or something, or if he indeed does suit up again?  And with that, if he does suit up what would the long term effect of Pym particles be?  Have they started to take their toll on his body?  Or his mind?

     UPDATE: I found this video of Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas talking to AMC about the film and around the 3:45 mark, they mention the effects of Pym Particles on the human body:

     But mostly I want to know if Scott Lang, or Pym, will think up a way to reverse the Pym particles and use them to become Giant Man or Goliath.  Seriously, by the looks of it, the belt can be used to switch from big to small and big again, so why not crank it WAY up and become huge?  Sure, theoretically, the reverse might destabilize the human form and lose the strength or some such other explainable oddity within the confines of this film's science, but regardless, there has to be a way, and I would like to see one of them (Pym or Lang) become a giant and crush a normal sized Yellowjacket.

     The reason I think it is possible is due to the official movie website's descriptions:
Pym Technologies:
     "Dr. Henry Pym originally discovered and isolated a rare group of subatomic particles, which have become known as the "Pym Particles", which could increase or decrease the size and mass of objects or living beings.  The Pym Particles work by stunting matter into the Kosmos Dimension when shrinking a subject or accruing extra matter from that dimension when enlarging."
     It sounds like it is very possible to become Giant Man or Goliath...

     Finally I'll leave you with this article, for those of you interested in the "real" science behind the Pym tech, here's a very awesome article about it:  [ Nerdist ]
