But first: a little background. Ant-Man is a weird one. It doesn't carry the same anticipation as The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Captain America 3 or even Doctor Strange, though it's an intriguing movie with an intriguing cast. It was intended as a project for the innovative British filmmaker Edgar Wright though after disagreements over the script, he moved on. Still the major cast - Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas - remained and Peyton Reed came in as director.

The original Ant-Man was a scientist named Hank Pym (Douglas), a brilliant but unpredictable man who designed a suit that allowed a man to shrink himself while retaining his strength.
