Cast: Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Michael Peña, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer
Director: Peyton Reed
This is somewhat different Marvel movie that we are use to see. It looks like a mini marvel movie that have a good potential to be a franchise. If you compare this with other marvel movie, it doesn't have that charismatic flavor of Iron man movies or depth of Captain America movies. Also it doesn't have hard hitting like Thor nor magical sound track as Guardians of the Galaxy.
It is a story of undersized superhero. It stars humorous Paul Rudd as Antman a.k.a Scott Lang a smart thief who have spend his three years in prison. He is desperate to reconnect with his daughter. He is tempted into one last job by his best friend (very lovable Michael Peña). Later he found out that the safe belongs to atomic scientist Dr Hank Pym (ex Antman played by Michael Douglas). Scott Lang find a mysterious suit (obviously of Antman) which has the power of shrinking down to size of an ant and also super strength and mind controlling device for ants.
After lot of struggles Paul Rudd teams up with Michael Douglas and his daughter(plyed by Evangeline Lilly) to bring down and steal the suit from one of Pym’s creations from greedy industrialist Darren Cross (Corey Stoll), who is assembling it as weapon-version of the Ant-Man suit.
It is very predicable story line as you expect good superhero to win over villain and a happy ending for movie. Movie didn't took more risk that it should have. It is Marvel's one of the most underwhelming movies (If you are expecting whole city to destroyed at the end of the movie). But it had good humor and descent acting by overall star cast. A special cameo from Anthony Mackie as Sam Wilson / Falcon.
**Spoilers - End Credit Scenes**
There were two end credit scenes from movie:
The first one was related to relationship between Dr. Hank Pym and his daughter played by Evangeline Lilly. Pym gives Wasp suit to his daughter. It was beautiful one.
The second one was the build up for next year's Captain America: Civil War(can't wait for that one!!). The scene goes like this, Winter soldier is captured by Captain America and Falcon. Falcon ask cap to call Iron Man but cap deny and falcon is talking about someone who can help cap in the matter of winter soldier(May be AntMan I think) and scene end here.
