Baseball been very, very good to him...
Still, that ONE sketch has cemented the "forgotten Avenger"'s image in the minds of fans and non-readers: https://youtu.be/uaWaXi9T1K8?t=4m17s
(Stan Lee first proposed an Ant-Man movie--not Pym, just a guy with a shrinking discovery--back when he was coming up with crazy movie ideas for New World Pictures in 1990, and yes, we got the "Beat up on the ants" jokes then, TOO.
It's been a forty-year quest for redemption.)
The trailer for Ant-Man And The Wasp is out and it looks like a heck of a lot of fun! Love that they're embracing the more outlandish aspects of this character in order to do fun shrinking/growing moments!
I love all things cinema, from silent movies to world cinema to animated cinema to big blockbusters to documentaries and everything in between!
I hope the whole thing doesn’t just hang around one massive car chase in the middle of the film, though, which this trailer kind of implies, but I’m guessing they’re just showing us the big trailer moments right now.
And an ACTUAL canonical Marvel villain this time (the Ghost, who used to hack Tony Stark's company), instead of Evil Script-Improvised Guy from the first movie.
Yes, Ant-Man still doesn't have any villains of his "own", but at least after Civil War, he's in the group canon that they can cross over.
