Ant-Man and The Wasp is in theaters July 6th, that’s the 7th month. Follow my train of thought here to Marvel Mondays and the 7 reasons why I love Ant-Man! Because really, how could you not?
Scott was in prison for stealing, sure, but what did he steal? He stole from the rich Vistacorp, and gave the money they stole back to their customers. Later he goes back to Pym’s house to return the Ant-Man suit. It’s this inherent goodness inside of him is what makes Hank Pym choose to mentor and train him to be a superhero.
He’s a total fanboy.
The scene where he meets Captain America in Civil War makes me laugh every single time I see it. Why? Because he is me. I would be all kinds of smooth in my head, but if Chris Evans was looking at me I’m sure I would mumble something about being Team Cap while turning 50 shades of red.
Relationship with his ants.
Once over the fear of his new 6-legged companions, Scott really bonds with the ants. He even names his most loyal steed- R.I.P. Antony.
He’s not a perfect guy, but he has a good heart. Cassie can see that in her dad. She even cheers him on when the police are looking for him! Scott wants to be in here life, and he wants to be someone she can be proud of. Truthfully, I think she was already proud of him even before he put on the suit.
He’s a normal guy.
Scott is really smart but he’s still just a human. He’s not a deity like Thor or a Super Soldier like Cap. And unlike Stark, he’s not an egotistical turd. He remains humble, a little awkward, and loyal to his friends. I also have a feeling Wasp would beat him up if he ever acted like Tony.
