The history of this movie being made is rooted prior to Iron Man 1. Initially Edgar Wright was supposed to write and direct. The movie stalled for quite awhile due to the surprising success of Phase 1 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Couple of years ago though it was finally announced that Antman was gonna be in Phase 2 with a solo movie. But a snag hit in the form of Marvel and Wright splitting due to creative differences. In comes Peyton Reed who managed to take over and turn out a really good and fun film. Instead of Hank Pym, we're given a semi-origin story of Scott Lang's rise as the Antman. Colorful cast, good special effects, and a simple plotline make for excellent entertainment.
