Now that Marvel’s Ant-Man has wrapped principal photography and is in the post-production part of its journey, the studio appears to be getting all of its ducks in order in regard to introducing the film to the general public. While the Marvel Studios brand is strong, they still have to sell this movie (one of their weirder titles) to people who have no idea Edgar Wright was ever attached to or fell off of the project and who don’t care about what his take may have been like.
Hit the jump for the official Ant-Man synopsis and to learn about the smaller character additions that were made during production. While I love Wright and think his take would have been great, I’ve got to come clean and say that director Peyton Reed is no slouch in his own right. I’m very much still looking forward to July 17th, 2015.
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.
Marvel’s “Ant-Man” stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, Corey Stoll as Darren Cross aka Yellowjacket, Bobby Cannavale as Paxton, Michael Peña as Luis, Judy Greer as Maggie, Tip “Ti” Harris as Dave, David Dastmalchian as Kurt, Wood Harris as Gale, Jordi Mollà as Castillo and Michael Douglas as Hank Pym. Directed by Peyton Reed and produced by Kevin Feige, Marvel’s “Ant-Man” delivers a high-stakes, tension-filled adventure on July 17, 2015.
