On July 17th Marvel launches their next installment into the Marvel Cinematic Universe, “Ant-Man.” Directed by Peyton Reed the film stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, and Michael Pena. The official synopsis goes as follows:
The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man.” Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
Given that we have loved everything Marvel has put on the big screen since Iron Man #1 we are eagerly awaiting this one. As is with a lot of our favorite films, we have done a tribute to the film and today we give you Phase 1.
