Did You Know?


In an interview at Comic-Con, Peyton Reed said that Marvel originally wanted Steve Buscemi for the role of Hank Pym, but due to a scheduling conflict, they had to go with Michael Douglas, their second choice. Buscemi would later be rumoured to be in the running for the role of Uncle Ben. See more »


When Ant-Man and the various insects enter the Pym building, the water pipes are shown as only partially filled with the water which is running downhill. To serve a multi-story building, the water pipes would need to be pressurized and would therefore be completely full. However, it was part of their plan that they had depressurised the water supply.

Fantastic all around and definitely going to watch it again!
7 September 2015 | by See all my reviews

Through this masterpiece, on par with, in my humble opinion, all other Marvel movies currently out in the Avengers Saga, obviously including the side series, Marvel has completely blown me away.

Character development, solid plot, fantastic humour and amazing cast all done flawlessly and did not leave me hoping for more, but rather asking 'When's the sequel coming out?'

With Michael Douglas and Michael Peña, having seen them both in previous movies where their performances are exemplary to say the least, I expect such mastery, but with Paul Rudd, and all the other actors, given this is the first movie in which I ever saw them, I had no idea what to expect. Complete success!

The fighting style of Ant-man is was as I expected since I have some background knowledge of the character, and yet I nonetheless could not have dreamt for such a good combination of just-enough special effects and fantastic actor performances! Ant-man is already brilliantly made, and it only gets more so during the combat scenes, for the ability to shrink and grow at will is something with which, to my great delight, Marvel got very creative, not holding back.

I'm trying to figure out when I can watch it again.
