Marvel has finally confirmed the long rumoured up-coming comic-adaptation, Ant-Man's director and synopsis. The Yes Man director, Peyton Reed will take on the director seat. Even though he is not the first choice (rumoured has it that Edgar Wright and Adam McKay both turned down the project), but still looking forward to it since it will be a brand new super-hero in big screen.
In terms of the casts, Paul Rudd (as the titular role) and Michael Douglas are the confirmed lead. Also, Marvel has disclosed the following official synopsis of Ant-man :
Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), 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.
Ant-man will be released on 17th July 2015 and I believed it will most probably in 3D too.
