To be quite honest, I wasn't expecting very much from Ant-Man, the latest release from Marvel Studios. I have seen some Marvel cartoons featuring the original set of Avengers including Captain America, Iron Man, Ant-Man, Wasp, and Thor, but was never truly impressed by character's powers or personality.
That all ended this weekend.
Without giving too much away about the film, Ant-Man seamlessly blends into the Marvel Universe without blinking an eye. The beginning of the film weaves itself early on into the Avenger storyline as we see some familiar faces arguing about a certain formula called the Pym Partical,which allows an individual to shrink to the size of an insect and potentially becoming a new version of the "Super Soldier".
Flash forward to present day and Scott Lang, played by Paul Rudd, is leaving prison and trying to make a new life for himself. In an uncanny set of events, Scott finds himself working with Dr. Hank Pym, whom is the creator of the Pym Partical and the original Ant-Man. As the story continues, we are thrown into the exceedingly funny jabs Marvel is now known for and some thrilling action packed scenes.
I'm really excited for what's to come in the Marvel story line as we start getting closer to the release of Captain America: Civil War (2016). If you haven't already, check out the trailer for Ant-Man below!!
Oh and for all of those true Marvel Fans out there.....make sure to stay until after the credits...I mean all the way. There is something exciting for those who do.
