Iron Man 3 Is Casting for Scientists--Could There Be an Ant-Man Connection?

There haven't been any casting announcements made for Ant-Man yet, but the rumor that the character would appear in Iron Man 3 has come and gone and come back again at least once. Then again, with Iron Man joining the Guardians of the Galaxy, perhaps we'll see something a bit more...cosmic after the credits in Tony Stark's next outing at the cinema.
