Digging even further into the vaults of Marvel Comics, lesser superheros continue to make their way into motion pictures, and in the case of Ant-Man, the result is surprisingly good. As with most of these movies, a once ordinary man finds himself with incredible powers which he uses to save the world. An action film with exceptional special effects that beg to be used in a remake of The Incredible Shrinking Man (1957), Ant-Man is a fun comic-book adaptation that will undoubtedly result in a string of sequels (Klaus Ming March 2016).
