Over the last few years, ever since it got announced, Ant-man has gotten a lot of snarky remarks made about it. Check out the trailer https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xInh3VhAWs8&feature=youtu.be
I am fairly confident that it is going to be a good movie myself. So far Marvel studios has done an incredible job of making all their movies work (Remembering that the first Hulk movie was before there was marvel studios). No one expected Guardians of the Galaxy to be a huge hit, with unknown characters and ridiculous characters with a talking racoon and a walking tree.
Yes Ant-Man is not a hugely popular character and yes there are several silly areas in the concept. Our hero will be riding an ant into battle and his main ability is that he can shrink. If done right, and it looks like that is what they are doing, it can work.
People need to understand that Ant-man is one of the older Marvel character and is a founding member of the Avengers in the comics. He has been a key part of the Marvel universe for a long while now.
I personally am hoping that they will have the Hank Pym Ant-Man do a cameo in Avengers: Age of . It would be real easy to do and it would work as a nice surprise for the fans. I still fidn it off that it is going to be Tony Stark who creates Ultron and not Hank Pym. At the minimum they need to mention Pym is some significant manner.
I have faith that they will give us a solid story that shows respect to the comics while at the same time making it unique with-in the Marvel cinematic universe, which is what Marvel Studios has shown us they are really good at doing.
I am fairly sure Avengers: Age of Ultron will be the big movie of the year, but Ant-Man is going to surprise many and prove the nay-Sayers wrong. I have full faith that it will be another enjoyable addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
