Shrinkage on the Ant-Man Team

Edgar Wright of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and The World’s End is out as director of Ant-Man, a Marvel superhero movie due to be released July 17, 2015. The announced cast includes Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Evangeline Lilly.

Ant-Man is a character who can reduce himself to microscopic size and communicate with insects. He’s had an undistinguished history at Marvel except for his role in founding the Avengers, which was enough to inspire a fan to make this fake Ant-Man trailer back in 2011. People are still being taken in by it – and leaving irate comments afterwards.
