We put Ant-Man on the spot
ARMED with an ability to shrink in scale, but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang ( Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must pull off a heist to save the world.
Star and co-screenwriter Rudd chats about working on the movie. his daughter, who’s really the only thing he cares about. Pym arranged the whole thing and has been pulling the puppet strings so that Scott would steal the suit and figure it out a little bit. Then he would bring Scott into his world and teach him how to use it properly.

It doesn’t stay with you unless you connect to the characters in some way.
