In what could be deemed as a relatively boring blog post by Edgar Wright, he has given away which version of Ant-Man Paul Rudd will be playing in the 2015 film. Below is an image of the Ant-Man helmet from Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, Season 2, Episode “To Steal an Ant-Man” where the character of Scott Lang steals the Ant-Man suit from Hank Pym. This also opens up the doors to the Heroes for Hire, Luke Cage and Iron Fist who are getting their own VOD series through Netflix.
Edgar Wright titled his blog post as “Homework” which would imply that this episode and version of Ant-Man, Scott Lang, will be the main basis for the film. Lang steals the suit from the lab he’s working at, because his daughter is sick and he needs money to pay for her medical bills. This provides a heart warming story and a family oriented tale for the Marvel film. If you’re interested in seeing the episode, all of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes is available on Netflix for watching. The show is highly recommended by us.
Do you think Ant-Man will be Scott Lang instead of Hank Pym or perhaps a mix of the character stories? Let us know!
