Ant-Man Movie Villain Rumored To Be Yellowjacket

Yesterday saw a batch of Ant-Man rumors that stated Crossfire was to be a villain, with the character's costume described differently than its comic book counterpart as being yellow and black with a stinger.
Now it's being said that the Ant-Man movie villain is actually Yellowjacket, which was an incarnation of Hank Pym in the comics.
However, BadAssDigest is stating that Marvel Studios is going in a different direction than the comic books with Yellowjacket in the movie being a different character and a villain.
It's also stated that Michael Douglas' Hank Pym will mentor Paul Rudd's Scott Lang.
So if any of this is true, it seems as if Hank Pym will have created the Ant-Man suit and possibly have been Ant-Man at one time; Scott Lang will become the new Ant-Man, with the villain a separate character called Yellowjacket.
"Ant-Man" has a July 17, 2015 release directed by Peyton Reed starring Michael Douglas as Hank Pym and Paul Rudd as Scott Lang.
