This July, we are about to receive what could be either one the best Marvel movies to date, or Marvel's first failure in their movie campaign. From what we have seen, the Ant Man story seems to definitely take place in the Avengers universe after Age of Ultron, but what can we look forward to?



From what is known about this film, Dr. Hank Pym (Micheal Douglas), head of Pym Industries, has a very important invention of his taken by a rival industrial leader. A suit that allows for the wearer to shrink to the size of an insect, giving them super strength, agility, and communicate with insects, is planned to be mass produced. Hank Pym knows this is not a good thing, so he gets a professional thief, Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) to take his original Ant Man suit and steal the research back. With the help of Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) Scott learns how to fight and control the powers of the suit to successfully pull off this heist.

This story is definitely original, still holding on to most of the classic Ant Man origin. Also, even though in the trailers seen, we definitely see some comedy and quick wit that will make the film a joy to watch, but still we get the super hero action we always look forward to in a Marvel Film. The question that is on everyone's mind is, will this film be great, or Marvel's first blunder?

Though several say Ant Man could be a screw up on Marvel's part, think about the original Avengers. The fact that Marvel is making Ant Man, shows that they are trying to bring back the original Avengers team. In many ways, Ant Man was a important member to the Avengers and was the key to the success in several missions. Especially in defeating the evil Ultron. Also bringing in Ant Man, it also helps to incorporate other Marvel characters into the universe, especially the hero wasp.

With the upcoming Ant Man film, we can get the chance to see the hero Wasp. Even though there hasn't been any showing or confirmation that the hero Wasp is in the film, Evangeline Lilly's character Hope Van Dyne gives us the clues we need to realize more heroes are on the way. We can only hope the more we see of Ant Man, the more characters come into the light.


Ant Man has the chance to unlock more of the Marvel Universe unlike any of the films before. There are several people who think that this film could ruin Marvel and end up being terrible. However that is what many said about the film Guardians of the Galaxy. However when that film came out, everyone realized it actually was probably the best Marvel Film yet. It too had the potential to be the laughing stock of Marvel Studios, but it didn't. It showed us several sections of the Marvel Universe to expand further. Giving us such alien races as the Kree and Xandarians, giving us another Infinity Stone, and finally showing us the mad Titan Thanos. So lets not judge this film yet, for it could end up being way better than any are giving it credit for.
