When the idea of Ant-Man being introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe was first brought up, a lot of fans – particularly those unfamiliar with the comics – were underwhelmed.
In a universe of gods, aliens and enormous green rage monsters, what use could a guy who can make himself really small be?
Well, as it turns out, he’s very useful – and he could go on to become one of the most important characters in the franchise.
So, in this video, as we look forward to Ant-Man and the Wasp later this year, we’ll take you through ten reasons why that’s the case.
The reasons in question are; he might have been on an extremely important secret mission during the events of Avengers: Infinity War, his ability to enter the Quantum Realm could prove decisive in defeating Thanos going forward in the MCU, he’s an original Avenger in the comic books and a true comic book icon, thanks to time-travel he could actually become an “original” Avenger in the MCU, his existence in the MCU has brought the Wasp to the forefront of the superhero world, Michael Douglas’ Hank Pym was Ant-Man previously in the franchise and may have saved the world before, his humour is a very important trait when it comes to keeping morale up, he brings a sense of family to proceedings, he’s a skilled thief and that could prove very useful for the MCU’s heroes, and he’s actually far more powerful than people give him credit for (he’s far from simply being “a guy who can shrink”).
