Marvel’s Ant-Man brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time.
Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang (Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas), protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
In the film, the man under the Yellowjacket suit is said to be Stoll’s Darren Cross. In the comics, Yellowjacket was initially an alternate superhero identity for Hank Pym, the costume having made its first appearance in “The Avengers” #59. Because of the severe mental stress he was under, Yellowjacket actually manifested itself as the darker side of Pym, leading to the character’s infamous turn to spousal abuse. Later on, a criminal named Rita DeMara stole the suit and became at first a supervillain and, then becoming kind of an antihero, eventually traveling to the 30th century and teaming up with a very different [Guardians of the Galaxy](movie:424073) team.
[Ant-Man](movie:9048) to hit theaters July 17, 2015.
