There is a big buzz online about Ant-Man, the latest Marvel Studios’ comic book adaptation that will hit movie screens tomorrow.

So who is Ant-Man?

The Ant-Man is a costumed avenger and the world’s tiniest crime fighter who has the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength and to communicate and control insects using a special device. Ant-Man’s suit can change size as he changes size.

Ant-Man is produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures and is the twelfth installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas and Corey Stoll star in movie directed by Peyton Reed.

The movie centres on a down-on-his-luck thief Scott Lang played by Paul Rudd who rediscovers his moral compass after using technology to transform himself into the size of an insect. Ant-Man is a scientist named Hank Pym (played by Michael Douglas) and one of the founding members of the Avengers. When Pym retires, Scott Lang takes over.

As the man with the powers of an arthropod, Lang must help Pym 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.

In the movie, Yellowjacket becomes a villain due to the Yellowjacket suit falling into the hands of Darren Cross (played by Corey Stoll), an industrialist and former protege of Pym. He uses a different, more militaristic version of Ant-Man’s suit. But even though he can change size, he cannot control insects like Lang can.
