Who Is The Ant-Man?
From the beginning of the film, it's easy to tell that Ant-Man's origin story is closer to the fans than any Wolverine or Magneto backstory will ever be.
The main reason is because Scott Lang wasn't born as the Ant-Man, he was chosen to become the Ant-Man.
The story of Scott Lang begins by delving into his criminal history as a cat burglar who possessed a strong sense of justice.
You see, most criminals steal for personal gain, where as, Lang stole to give back to the people he felt were wronged.
This strong sense of Justice within Lang caught the attention of S.H.I.E.L.D' s former scientist, Mr. Hank Pym(Douglas) who is the original creator and wearer of the Ant-Man suit.
Pym believed that Lang's natural ability to be stealthy would provide a useful asset to his mission of shutting down, Pym Technologies.
Why the concern with Pym Technologies?
Because in Hank's absence, his former apprentice Darren Cross has been trying to replicate the legendary Ant-Man suit technology and he's close to success.
Will Scott Lang unlock the powers of the Ant-Man suit in time? Or will Darren Cross(Stoll) achieve his goal and sell his revolutionary technology to S.H.E.I.D ?
The Awesome Power Of Marvel's Imagination
As we've watched several Marvel films up to this point, we can't help but be in awe of Marvel's imagination.
Just look at how many characters they've brought to life through the stories of comic and now film.
You have to wonder if Marvel had the big vision in mind of one day creating such an empire when they published their first drawings in the late 30s.
One thing we know for sure is that if it wasn't for their early tales of superhero adventure, we wouldn't have that awesome Yellow Jacket suit up above.
Look at the stingers on that guy..Geez! How do you even come up with something that cool? Where does Marvel get it's inspiration?
After Watching, "Ant-Man"
We already can see where this one is going because if you didn't know, Hank Pym is an original founder of the Epic Avengers;) But you didn't hear that from us..shhhh...
But in all seriousness, after viewing this film, we will be looking forward to more appearances of the Ant-Man within future Marvel releases.
The standouts in the film for us were this whole "sub-atomic" principle and the awesome graphics used to capture Lang's transition to/from average guy to pint-sized titan.
There's a few more goodies for you to find within the film, but we'll let you explore those on your own.
Oh and one more thing...If you have learned anything from watching Marvel films it's that You Don't Leave The Theater Until The Lights Come On..but you didn't hear that from us either..lol Enjoy
