Ant-Man is one of the founding members of The Avengers. He utilizes the ability to shrink in size and also increase strength. Paul Rudd is set to play Scott Lang side by side with Michael Douglas as Hank Pym. I am very curious to see how many of the powers of the Ant-Man are going to translate over to the MCU. How will they show off his insect communication powers? I suppose with Paul Rudd at the helm he can convince us of anything with his witty dialogue. If he works within meta-critique of that ability the audience may be able to handle it.
Including Hayley Atwell as Peggy Carter in the cast list is not only going to give more credence to the new Agent Carter series, she will give us much more backstory on the Hank Pam character and how exactly we arrived at this point in the MCU. I expect many flashbacks to S.H.E.I.L.D’s early days.
Ant-Man will conclude Phase two of the MCU on July 17th 2015
