Get to Know: Ant-Man

You probably aren’t too familiar with the superhero Ant-Man. You might know, however, that Marvel Studios plans to release an Ant-Man film in Jul 2015, soon after Avengers 2. This would mean Ant-Man is the hero to kick off Marvel’s Phase 3. That’s a lot of pressure, considering hardly anyone knows about the character.

I’m sure you could guess why he’s called Ant-Man – obviously has something to do with ants right? Well if that’s your first thought, you wouldn’t be wrong. But there’s more to the character than meets the eye. For instance, were you aware that there has actually been 3 Ant-Men in the past? The film features 2 of them, Hank Pym and Scott Lang, played by Michael Douglas and Paul Rudd respectively. Also, did you know that in the comics Ant-Man creates the villain Ultron, after which Avengers 2: Age of Ultron is named? read more
