Marvel’s Ant-Man has been in development since 2006 when Edgar Wright was hired to co-write the film and direct. He worked diligently on the movie until creative differences with the Marvel executives forced him to leave his pet project in the hands of Peyton Reed.

In this episode of The 602 Club host Matthew Rushing is joined by Andi VanderKolk and Michael Schindler to talk about Marvel’s Ant-Man. We discuss the impressions we had going into the film with the backstage drama, it being a smaller story, whether it’s fresh or formulaic, the Wasp story, actors and characters, the themes, Phase 2 and Phase 3, wrapping up with final thoughts and ratings.
