Marvel revealed this gem mere minutes before the beginning of Comic-Con! Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, this will be available at the Marvel booth in Comic Con. The article reads as follows:
As this poster makes clear: That’s Paul Rudd taking on the central role of Scott Lang, a thief who, according to the comics, stole the technology behind the shrinking suit from the original Ant-Man, Hank Pym.
And there’s Michael Douglas, joining the Marvel universe as Pym, a scientist with Tony Stark-levels of ingenuity. He not only builds a miniaturizing mechanism, but also constructs a method of communicating with tiny creatures. (Better to have them on your side than trying to eat you.)
Although Lang only steals the suit to make it easier to lead a life of crime—it’s simple to sneak in and grab other things of value when you are microscopic—he inevitably follows a reluctant hero arc.
Ant-man is still more than a year away from being released and has suffered a few set-backs with director Edgar Wright leaving the production over “differences in vision” but Marvel has still to budge the release date. How excited are you for Ant-Man?
