Ant-Man is a 2015 superhero film based on the Marvel comics characters of the same name. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) is the inventor of a suit that allows the wearer to shrink and grow. When the wearer is small, their punches land with the same force as when they’re full size, but concentrated onto the area of a pinhead. Pym worked for S.H.I.E.L.D. using the suit until 1989 when he resigned when he learned that they were trying to replicate the suit technology for military applications, and started his own company: Pym Technologies. In the present, Pym’s daughter Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) is working with Pym’s former protege Darren Cross (Corey Stoll), to force Pym out of his own company. Cross is determined to reverse-engineer Pym’s shrinking suit, and keeps on trying despite failure after failure.
