Official footage of the upcoming Marvel's Phase Two film "Ant-Man" shown at SDCC 2012. Ant-Man is an upcoming American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics characters of the same name: Scott Lang and Hank Pym, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. The film is intended to be the twelfth installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Peyton Reed is set to direct the film written by Edgar Wright, Joe Cornish and Adam McKay, with Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly and Corey Stoll. In Ant-Man, Lang must help defend Dr. Pym's Ant-Man technology and plot a heist with worldwide ramifications. Con-man Scott Lang must aid his mentor Dr. Hank Pym in safeguarding the mystery of the Ant-Man technology, which allows its user to decrease in size but increase in strength, from various menaces and plot a caper to defend the Earth.
Paul Rudd as Scott Lang / Ant-Man: A petty criminal, who acquires an invented substance that allows him to shrink in scale but increase in strength. Regarding Rudd's casting, producer Kevin Feige said, "Look at that origin of the petty crook who comes into contact with a suit and does his best to make good, and then look at someone like Paul Rudd, who can do slightly unsavory things like break into people’s houses and still be charming and who you root for and whose redemption you will find satisfaction in." Michael Douglas as Dr. Hank Pym / Ant-Man: An entomologist and physicist, who invents the Ant-Man technology in 1963 and mentors Lang to take over as Ant-Man Douglas compared his decision to join a superhero film to his role in Behind the Candelabra saying, "Sometimes—like [when] they didn't see you for Liberace—you've got to shake them up a little bit and have some fun." Evangeline Lilly as Hope Pym: Hank Pym's daughter. Corey Stoll as Darren Cross / Yellowjacket: A former protégé of Pym, who takes over Pym's company and acquires Pym's technology to create the Yellowjacket suit.
Additionally, Michael Peña and David Dastmalchian have been cast in undisclosed roles.
