Ant-Man is a 2015 film and the first film of the third phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It stars Adrien Brody and Selma Blair as Ant-Man and Wasp. It is the prequel to The Avengers 2, explaining Ant-Man's origins.
Hank Pym, a SHIELD scientist, creates an army of guardian robots called Ultron drones for SHIELD. However, Aleksei Systsevich, formerly the Rhino and now a spy working for HYDRA, hacks the mainframe and uses the Ultron drones as his own personal minions. Meanwhile, HYDRA makes a deal with the organization AIM, now led by George Tartleton, to create the ultimate weapon. George volunteers to become the weapon, the Mobile Organism Designed Only for Killing, M.O.D.O.K. M.O.D.O.K. and the Ultron drones lead an attack on the SHIELD hellicarrier, and cause it to fall out of the sky and into the ocean. The only people aboard the ship that survive are Black Widow, Nick Fury, Maria Hill, and Hank Pym. They arrive at a SHIELD base where Fury decides to reactivate Pym's shut down "Pym Particles" project. The project was an attempt to make a super-soldier that could shrink down to any size they wanted at will. Hank volunteers to be that super soldier, since it was his project. Injected with the Pym Particles, he passes out. He wakes up, the size of an ant, inside a lunch box. Fury says that Hank shrunk down in his sleep, so he was put in the lunch box for "safe keeping". Hank turns back to human size, and asks how he's going to take down AIM with nothing but the power to "shrink down and be stepped on". Fury gives him a helmet that gives him the ability to communicate with ants. Joking around, Nick Fury says that he can be "Ant-Man". Janet reveals to Hank that she has powers as well and can be his sidekick. Hank asks how, and Janet explains that before the Pym Particles project was shut down, there was a freak accident where she was mutated and given wings as well as the powers to shrink down and shoot blasts of energy from her bare hands. Fury told her to keep it a secret from Hank, as he wasn't supposed to know they were doing secret tests on the Pym Particles without his permission in the first place. Ant-Man and Janet, calling herself Wasp, set out to take down AIM. More to be added...
