It bears mentioning that the story Matheson wrote was all of 12 pages long and almost three quarters of the film is from Richard Kelly. This is the same man who helmed the beloved Donnie Darko and the much maligned Southland Tales, so flip a coin when deciding to see this one.
It looks like Nathan Fillion might be playing a superhero afterall. After being considered for roles in Green Lantern, and Captain America,Fillion (most remembered as Malcolm Reynolds in the cult-hit Firefly) is reportedly in final negotiations to play Dr. Hank Pym in the new Avengers film. It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.
