2. Eric O'Grady
Created by Robert Kirkman and Phil Hester
First appearance: "Civil War: Choosing Sides" #1 (2006)
A low level S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who steals some of Pym's tech, the "Irredeemable Ant-Man" sounds right up frequent Wright collaborator Simon Pegg's alley. Perhaps Lang and O'Grady could start out as partners in crime and each follow a different path using Pym's stolen gear. In recent issues of "Secret Avengers," O'Grady was killed and replaced with an LMD who became the evil Black Ant, a nifty alias that could be recycled for the film -- or maybe Wright can have O'Grady become the Black Ant from the get go. Whatever the case, the character created by "The Walking Dead" mastermind Robert Kirkman would be a perfect cinematic foil for Rudd's Lang. O'Grady is a selfish, oafish, jerk who finds the most immoral way to use his powers. Add Pym to the mix and you have potential for many different conflicts between the leads. Having the three men who each wore the mantle of Ant-Man play off each other would be a fitting testament to Marvel history and serve to contrast each other's quirks and assets.
