Ant-Man is coming!

Ant-Man is coming!

Ant-Man was created by none other than Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and first appeared in the comic series Tales to Astonish #35, though his non-costumed self Henry Pym appeared a few issues earlier in Tales to Astonish #27.Henry Pym is a scientist who invents a material that allows him to change his size, thus creating his alter-ego Ant-Man. Interestingly Ant-Man went on to become a founding member of the Avengers along with his sidekick the Wasp who was Henry’s girlfriend. 

So far there has been no sign of Ant-Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) however that looks like it’s going to change with Edgar Wright’s project to bring Ant-Man to film. The adaptation has been speculated about for some time, Edgar Wright is currently filming ‘The World’s End’ as a follow up to 2010’s ‘Scott Pilgrim vs. the World’, however things are looking more and more likely for Ant-Man’s big screen debut with Marvel and Disney setting a release date for the film, November 6, 2015. 

With ‘Avengers 2’ scheduled for May 2015 it doesn’t look like Ant-Man will have much of a role (if any) in phase 2 of the MCU. You can check out an image of Ant-Man in costume below.




Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
