Why we love Ant-Man (aka Paul Rudd)

Why we love Ant-Man (aka Paul Rudd)

He’s the little superhero who’s made a big impact on all our lives, and he’s back in Ant-Man And The Wasp

If you need proof that good things come in small packages, you’re in the right place

Buy Ant-Man on the Virgin Media Store and pre-order Ant-Man And The Wasp. Certs 12

We first meet Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang (aka Ant-Man) as he tries to find redemption from his past as a petty criminal. Obviously, in order to do so, he dons a suit that shrinks him in scale but increases his strength and helps his mentor, Dr Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), pull off a heist to save the world.


Ant-Man (based on the Marvel Comics character of the same name) was a huge critical success, so it’s no wonder that Rudd is returning for the sequel, Ant-Man And The Wasp. As Scott tries to get to grips with balancing his tough day-job as a superhero with fatherhood, he gets a call from Dr Hank Pym for another urgent mission. But luckily, this time Ant-Man’s got some help from Dr Pym’s daughter, Hope van Dyne (played by Evangeline Lilly). Michelle Pfeiffer and Laurence Fishburne have joined the cast, plus make sure to look out for a teeny (and we mean that literally) cameo from co-creator of the Ant-Man comics, Stan Lee.

Ant-Man is already available to buy in the Virgin Media Store or to rent on Virgin Movies. Get it in anticipation of the sequel, Ant-Man And The Wasp, which is available for pre-order from 3 August. But before you do any of that, check out these seven reasons why the guy playing the tiny titular hero, Paul Rudd, is our best friend (although he doesn’t know it yet)…
