First glimpse at Marvel’s Ant-Man!
It was definitely not an easy ride for this particular Marvel hero when it came to getting his own movie, but it seems like things are finally on the way. The very first picture taken on the set of the movie was released for the public. Paul Rudd, who will be playing Scott Lang, the movie’s main character, is show looking kinda rugged, something to be honest I never thought when picturing Paul Rudd (but that’s most definitely just me, I’m told). I still like it, though.
Just in case some of you have been squatting under a rock for a while (which is perfectly fine), here’s the official synopsis of the movie:
Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), 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.
The movie was in production hell for a long time, something that made a lot of fans question whether it was ever going to happen or not, but this photo pretty much seals the deal. I mean, we have photographic evidence that it’s happening. With a little under a year to wait for the movie’s release (with a set date for the 17th of July), more information will become available, but this has been quite a promising start. Marvel has yet to disappoint when it comes to movies, with a quite a winning streak. Given the stellar cast they managed to gather around: Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly, to name a few, it’s bound to be another success. I’ll still be keeping my fingers crossed, though.
