For the last few years, Marvel Studios is releasing one superhero movie after the other, tasting grand success in the process. Now with the upcoming release of their next movie Ant-Man, they are about to repeat that yet again. The movie has not even hit the theaters probably, but already industry experts are considering it to be one of the biggest releases of this year, and certainly among the best for this summer season.
Ant-Man is the 12th installment of Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Directed by Peyton Reed from a screenplay that is written by Joe Cornish, Edgar Wright, Adam McKay and Paul Rudd, the film focuses on the origin story of its protagonist Ant-Man, played by Paul Rudd himself. The movie was in the process of development ever since 2006, however it is only at present that it is seeing the light of day. Ant-Man already had its Los Angeles world premiere on June 29th, 2015. It is now currently slated for being released in theaters in North America in 3D as well as IMAX 3D versions on July 17th, 2015.
Ever since the first trailers of this movie were released this year, there has been major speculation about the plot and nature of this film. However, the topic that attracted the maximum curiosity was the central question of who Ant-Man was or what was his identity? Ever since the character was first introduced in a Marvel Comics edition way back in January 1962, not once did Ant-Man made any appearance in any of the motion pictures, and it is this air of mystery that the filmmakers consider will be the central driving factor for the movie’s success. In the day and age when most superheroes are overexposed and household celebrities in their own rights, it is only an enigmatic and lesser known figure like Ant-Man that can again draw the attention of moviegoers and keep them intrigued with his slowly revealing nature.
The movie will feature some of Hollywood brightest names such as Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña and David Dastmalchian. The score of the movie is being written by Christophe Beck. The movie is going to have all the elements that are going to make it one of the best movies that have been released under the Marvel Studios banner. However, the best and the most unique part about this movie is that it is going to offer a number of singularly funny moments due to the fact that the main character’s body shrinking abilities is surely going to pose some major comedic moments.
While Ant-Man is about to be released into the theaters within a few weeks, people who are looking to watch Ant Man movie online will be able to do so by the end of this month.
