Now that Peyton Reed is in place to direct Marvel’s ANT-MAN, the studio have released an official plot synopsis for the film.
The official word reads:
“Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind his 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.”
So there’s nothing there that we didn’t already know, but it’s at least good to finally get the official blurb from Marvel and Disney. It’s been a rough few weeks for ANT-MAN, with a lot of fans left questioning what exactly is happening to the film. Edgar Wright departed the production after nearly a decade of work, largely down to the script he put together with Joe Cornish being butchered, and then several names ruled themselves out. First up to reject the directing gig was ANCHORMAN’s Adam McKay, but he has since agreed to come aboard to work on the ANT-MAN script with Reed.
As well as Douglas and Rudd, ANT-MAN also has unconfirmed roles for Evangeline Lilly, Patrick Wilson, and Corey Stoll. Despite its recent issues, the movie is still scheduled for a 17th July, 2015 release.
