Janet van Dyne, a founding member of the Avengers and the person who gave it its name, appears to have been erased from the MCU. Not in the roster when Avengers came out back in 2012, Jan was set for another opportunity to be a part of the team when Marvel announced Ant-Man. Unfortunately, from the announcements yesterday, Jan van Dyne was not even mentioned but someone else was: Hope van Dyne, later corrected to “Hope Pym”, Hank Pym’s daughter.
At best, Jan will either be a mention or a cameo or an easter egg. She will not be a part of the team she founded, she will not be a superhero. She’s either been swapped out for Hope Pym, who might take up the mantle because Marvel Studios thinks women are interchangeable, or she will be an easter egg at most.
Janet van Dyne, the heart and soul of the original Avengers and of every Avengers team she’s been on throughout the years, has been erased from the MCU.
If that seems like a fucking shitty thing for Marvel to do to you, we’re tweeting out in the #JanetVanCrime hashtag. you can join us and stand up to yet another fucking erasure of a female character. Keep an eye on the #janetvancrime tag on tumblr for panels, livestreams, and links. Please don’t stay silent about this.
Is it me or people just looking for a reason to be upset?
From what we can gather so far about this film Hank Pym is a VILLAIN AND DOESN’T INVENT ULTRON!!!
The MCU on paper is shitting all over Ant-Man and co so don’t start trying to start a witch hunt and attacking people yet until you know the full story!
Fucksake Tumblr is getting fucking worse for idiotic people jumping to conclusions and attacking hard working writers in the name of equality then hiding when they are proved wrong. Has the #FireRemender thing literally taught everybody nothing?
SHUT THE FUCK UP
sit the fuck down
hank pym is not a villain in ant-man, it’s said very clearly that he’s scott’s mentor and yellowjacket is the villain. if you’re accusing me of jumping to conclusions i’d like to ask how you thought it was a good idea to bring your logic to this ball game when you can’t even comprehend the 5 bits of information given in 13 minutes of footage.
the mcu on paper is giving both ant-men a movie, and nothing to wasp. both ant-men are heroes and have their own franchise, i see nothing of them being shit on. i know this because again, i watched the panel, read the liveblog, and read the articles and have been keeping track of this movie.
do not compare #janetvancrime to #fireremender. two different campaigns for different purposes and different methods. we are drawing attention to the erasure, and it is an erasure, because again i clearly understand what the fuck is going on with marvel’s future film projects more than you do, and telling marvel it is a bad idea to delete janet van dyne from the avengers.
