Coming off of their $1 billion blockbuster hit sequel, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel looks to keep things rolling with their new superhero movie, Ant-Man. Marvel’s latest film focuses on Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), a con-man, who is sought out by Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) to pull off a heist that could potentially save the world. Dr. Pym transforms Scott into the Ant-Man by means of a suit that gives him the ability to shrink to the size of an ant and have super strength while in that telescopic size.
House of Cards alum, Corey Stoll, plays the film’s villain, Yellowjacket, whose superpowers rival those of the Ant-Man. With possible cameos from some of the Avengers including Falcon, Ant-Man has the possibility to win audiences over. This movie has the same ambiance that Guardians of the Galaxy had when its trailer first premiered. Guardians had a somewhat goofy, nonchalant feeling about it; however, surprised everyone at the box office when it became one of the most critically acclaimed Marvel films to date. We will find out July 17 whether Ant-Man follows the path of Guardians of the Galaxy or gets stomped on at the box office.
Release date: July 17
