This January, the Marvel Universe’s smallest super hero is ready for the big time in ANT-MAN #1, the new ongoing series launching as part of Avengers NOW!

Scott Lang has never been the world’s best super hero. Heck, most people don’t even think he’s been the best Ant-Man – and the last guy created Ultron and joined the Masters of Evil, so that’s really saying something. But all that’s about to change when the Superior Iron Man calls up Scott with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity!
“For Scott, being Ant-Man is kind of his one big thing,” says writer Nick Spencer, in an interview with Marvel.com. “No matter how much trouble it’s caused him, or how much it’s cost him, it’s still the thing that plucked him out of criminal obscurity and gave him a chance to be something. And when we open, he’s trying to spin it into something new. He sees an opportunity.”
This is Scott Lang’s chance to turn it all around and be the hero he’s always wanted to be. Sure he’s been to prison! Sure he’s been through a messy divorce! Sure he’s been, um…dead. But this time it’s going to be different. New city. New outlook. New Scott. This time, nothing is going to stop the astonishing Ant-Man! And he’s coming to comic shops and digital devices this January for the all-new ANT-MAN #1!

Fans can finally rejoice because Ant-Man is actually underway! While there have been doubters of whether or not Ant-Man would work as a film, most of the skepticism has gone away after seeing Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy do exceptionally well, for a movie about a group of space-misfits and a talking tree based off of second-tier Marvel characters.
Ant-Man will star Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym, Evangeline Lily as Hope Van Dyne, and The Strain’s Corey Stoll as Darren Cross/Yellowjacket. What do you guys think about this upcoming film and its characters?
Ant-Man is schedules to hit theaters on July 17th, 2015.
The Oscar-winning actor joins the cast of Marvel’s Ant-Man, in theaters July 31, 2015!
Michael Douglas has stepped into some of the biggest–or should that be tiniest?–shoes of his career.
The two-time Academy Award-winning actor will join director Edgar Wright and Paul Rudd in Marvel’s "Ant-Man," hitting theaters July 31, 2015.
"With Hank Pym’s rich history in the Marvel Universe, we knew we needed an actor capable of bringing the weight and stature to the role that the character deserves," said Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige. "We felt incredibly relieved when Michael Douglas agreed to step into the part with the charm and fortitude he brings to every character he inhabits, and couldn’t be more excited to see what he will do to bring Hank Pym to life."
The legendary actor, who earned an Academy Award in the category of Best Actor in a Leading Role for his iconic portrayal of Gordon Gecko in "Wall Street," has also starred in numerous modern classics including "Basic Instinct," "Fatal Attraction," "The Game," "Wonder Boys," "Traffic" and many more. In addition to acting, Douglas has also served as Producer and Executive Producer on a number of films including "Romancing the Stone," John Carpenter’s "Starman" and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest," for which he also won an Academy Award for Best Picture. Most recently, Douglas earned a Golden Globe and his first Primetime Emmy Award for his role as legendary entertainer Liberace in the HBO original film "Behind the Candelabra."
Douglas will star as Hank Pym, who first appeared in TALES TO ASTONISH #27 (Jan. 1962), with Rudd starring as Scott Lang in the film.
