We put Ant-Man on the spot

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - GOODMOVIES -

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.

I think that making any kind of char­ac­ter hu­man is what keeps you in­ter­ested. You could have the most amaz­ing fight se­quence or you could have the most daz­zling spe­cial ef­fects and they could be pretty cool to look at, but it doesn’t have any kind of depth. It doesn’t stay with you un­less you con­nect to the char­ac­ters in some way.

Ant-Man.

STOLEN MO­MENT: Paul Rudd as Scott Lang in Do you think making the char­ac­ters so hu­man makes the story more ac­ces­si­ble?
