Marvel presents "Ant Man" (2015): More Marvel Movies for the Next 6 Years
Marvel Movies will be releasing their new film based on Marvel Comics' "Ant Man" in 2015. According to a synopsis released by Cinema Blend, "Ant Man" is armed with an astonishing ability to shrink in scale, while also being able to increase physical strength. Con man Scott Lang, played by Paul Rudd, must embrace his inner-hero to help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, played by Michael Douglas, in a mission to protect the secret behind Pym's spectacular Ant Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
Aside from Rudd and Douglas, the cast includes Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Pena, Abby Ryder Fortson, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris, John Slattery, Gregg Turkington, and T.I.
The film is written by a team that consists of Adam McKay, Andrew Barrer, and Gabriel Ferrari, whose adaptation is based on the comic series from Marvel that was written by the legendary Stan Lee, Larry Lieber and Jack Kirby. Kevin Feige is the motion picture's sole producer and Peyton Reed assumed the role of director. The film's production company was Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Studios has secured the distribution rights.
"Ant Man" is one of the most awaited films from Marvel and will be released on July 17, 2015 in the United States.
