Ant-Man is the smallest Avenger to get a solo film. He is a founding member of the Avengers, but in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he has yet to appear.
The potential for this Ant-Man film is infinite.
If you think about it, a film based on Ant-Man has a lot of directions it can go in. He has the power to change his size, but maintain the strength of a larger being. He can penetrate the world of ants, and take us to those smaller worlds that exist unnoticed.
There have been successful non-superhero films to tackle this theme. I personally remember the films Honey, I Shrunk the Kids and Innerspace. I’m sure there were other, similar films around that time, too, which could inspire this film in one aspect or another. Because, during the late 80s, everyone liked the idea of being super small and approaching a much larger world.
If Ant-Man doesn’t appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron, than he’ll need to appear in Avengers: Infinity War. He was a founding member in the Avengers comics, but he’s not in the 1st Avengers movie. I am curious how Marvel will appease all those comic book readers who spaz out when Hollywood alters things.
Will they tell us that Ant-Man was actually in the Avengers movie, but he’s so small that we just didn’t see him? Will they then show us the whole Avengers assembling from his smaller perspective? Or will they just throw him in there with no explanation aside from the movies being different from the comic books, and cause a fanboy riot?
