With the imminent release of Ant Man, I've illustrated a series of character posters celebrating Marvel's tiniest hero. There's been a lot of debate surrounding the movie since Edgar Wright left directing duties over creative differences, & many question whether Ant Man is the right character to lead the charge into Marvel Phase 3. Film blog sites have been reporting low traffic around Ant Man related content, & there have been questions regarding the character's performance across social media in general. Could Marvel have made a mistake on this one?
Unlikely...Marvel are the kings of the connected cinematic universe & franchises like DC, Transformers & stablemates Star Wars are following suit with ensemble & solo movies in the works. Marvel anticipate this movie will be key in bringing further connectivity to the MCU with head honcho Kevin Feige describing it as "Having the opportunity to go to a place that we haven’t done before and do a type of action and a type of specs we haven’t done before. It isn’t just about getting bigger, but it’s about getting clever and getting more unique. This movie gives that opportunity"...and he should know.
Ten movies in & Marvel has proved it can cut it on the big screen, people had doubts about Guardians Of The Galaxy & we all know how that panned out...the idea of making this a classic heist movie seems fresh, the cast is pretty stellar & I for one am looking forward to seeing new villain Yellowjacket in action. All in all I think we can relax...it's going to be good.
In addition some apparel merch designs below...
Be cool to see these made...would you buy one?
