Leave it to Marvel to pull off what seemed impossible: turning a lame superhero into one that is not only a lot of fun to watch, but also the most exciting. Ant-Man has the fun that’s been lacking in recent Marvel offerings. While most thought last summer’s “Guardians” was fun, I didn’t think that Emperor had any clothes. Ant-Man lays out the groundwork of backstory, explains the science of it all and then goes to town with the concept. This one ranks up there with the first Iron Man, both Captain Americas, and the first Avengers. By the time the words “Ant-Man will return” appear on screen, you are excited to see him again. And stay through the credits for one last geek-gasm…a scene comparable to the one after the first Iron Man.
