Check out the first three animated Ant-Man shorts!
A few days ahead of their Disney XD debut, Marvel Animation has brought online the first three animated Ant-Man shorts: “Soup Time,” “Science Fair,” and “Alien Invasion.” You can watch all three right now using the players below!
Title hero Scott Lang (played by Paul Rudd in the Marvel Studios movies) is voiced by Josh Keaton as he fights evil alongside the Wasp and Hank Pym, with occasional breaks to help his daughter Cassie with her homework. The series will be made up of six two-minute animated Ant-Man shorts with future chapters, “Exterminator,” “Proton Cube” and “Not a Date,” set to air Sunday, June 11 at 11:28am, 5:28pm and 8:58am, respectively.
All six animated Ant-Man shorts are directed by Ugo Bienvenu and Kevin Manach, written by Brian Wysol, executive produced by Alan Fine, Dan Buckley, Joe Quesada, Cort Lane, Stephen Wacker, and Stan Lee, with Cara Speller and Marc Bodin-Joyeux also producing.
On the big screen, both Ant-Man and the Wasp are set to return to theaters in a little over a year. Set for a July 6, 2018 release, Ant-Man and the Wasp will feature the return of Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Pym and Michael Douglas as Hank Pym. The sequel’s script hails from Transformers writers Andrew Barrer & Gabriel Ferrari and Academy Award winner Adam McKay (The Big Short).
Ant-Man and the Wasp will also feature the return of scene-stealer Michael Pena as Luis, with additional roles still to be confirmed. Check back for updates as they become available.
