Full disclosure time: Whenever I hear someone mention the hero Ant-Man, I usually think, “Who?” or, “Why?”
That said, I’m excited for this movie because a) I love superhero movies and b) I’m excited to learn more about this elusive hero I know extremely little about.
Ant-Man, starring Paul Rudd, is coming out this July, so this will be a fun summer movie to go and see. For now, though, we can study up on Ant-Man, specifically Scott Lang (there have been multiple people in the Marvel Universe that have worn the suit, so there have been multiple “Ant-Man” heroes throughout the Marvel timeline).
According to my very limited research, Scott Lang eventually becomes a member of the Avengers, so it will be interesting to see if he shows up in the future Avenger movies.
