One of Hank Pym's first recurring villains, Egghead can be the cinematic menace that plagues Rudd's Scott Lang. In the comics, Egghead manipulated Pym, whom Michael Douglas will portray in the film, to commit crimes which led to him falling out of favor with his teammates. This, in turn, led to the slap heard 'round the world, as Pym struck Janet, a moment that has become indelibly linked to Pym's legacy. If Pym does somehow experience a fall from grace in the film, wouldn't the manipulative genius, Egghead, be a perfect catalyst for that fall? Wright could bring Egghead to life, turning the once cheesy villain into the cause of the potential tragedy surrounding the film version of Pym. Many assume that Pym will take some kind of antagonistic role to Lang, and although this has not been confirmed, there is an established comic history of Egghead darkening the spirit of Hank Pym.
