However, their plan was uncovered by Cross, who managed to kidnap Lang's daughter , resulting with a final fight where Ant-Man defeated Cross by sending them both to the Quantum Realm. Ant-Man was able to survive the journey into the Quantum Realm, giving Pym hope that his wife could be saved as Lang returned into his old life, only to be told that the Avengers had learnt of him and began seeking him out. Ant-Man was then recruited to joining Captain America 's side during the Avengers' Civil War , having been recommended by the Falcon following the previous encounter during Ant-Man's battle against Cross.
Upon learning of Helmut Zemo 's plan to manipulate the Avengers, Ant-Man had then joined their battle against Iron Man 's side to get Captain America and the Winter Soldier to safety so they could find and defeat Zemo. Despite completing the mission, Ant-Man and several of his new allies were captured by Thaddeus Ross , who had them imprisoned in the Raft for going against their Sokovia Accords.
While they were freed by Captain America, Ant-Man and Hawkeye simply decided not to become fugitives, instead making the deal with the FBI to give up their heroics and be put under house arrest, ensuring they could still spend time with their own families. Before Lang's house arrest was completed, he began getting visions of Janet van Dyne , who had remained trapped inside the Quantum Realm. This resulted in Lang being taken out of his house arrest and recruited by Hank Pym to rescue Janet, with the aid of Wasp , all while ensuring that Jimmy Woo was unaware that Lang was free.
However, these plans were then complicated when Ant-Man and Wasp were also confronted by both Ghost and Sonny Burch , who wanted to prevent them from saving Janet for their own reasons. Eventually, Ant-Man and the Wasp succeeded in rescuing Janet from the Quantum Realm, as Ant-Man was still able to fool Woo and was finally released from his house arrest, as he and his allies worked to better understand the possibilities of the Quantum Realm.
However, during an experiment with the Quantum Realm, Ant-Man had become trapped as his allies were suddenly turned to dust by Thanos , along with half of all life. Ant-Man was not saved from the dimension until , where he had regrouped with the Avengers , and suggested that they use the Quantum Realm as a means of Time Travel , to undo Thanos' action.
As they recruited Tony Stark to build the technology they needed, Ant-Man had rejoined the Avengers on the Time Heist , where they successfully managed to find and collect their six Infinity Stones and undo Thanos' fatal actions. However, Thanos had managed to track them through time, as Ant-Man rejoined the universe's other heroes in a final battle.
Eventually, the heroes destroyed Thanos, although Iron Man sacrificed his own life to do so, as Lang then finally reunited with his beloved family.
Scott Lang had earned a master's degree in electrical engineering. With his skills, he would often steal from criminals and give back to those they had stolen from.
The couple later had a daughter whom they named Cassandra "Cassie" Lang. Wishing to support his own family, Lang promised his wife that he would stop stealing after Cassie's birth and took up a job at the security company Vistacorp.
Lang breaking inside Geoff Zorick 's Mansion. Lang discovered that Vistacorp was overcharging its customers. At first, he thought it was simply a coding error and changed it.
He then realized the company was intentionally doing this to their customers for financial gain when Geoff Zorick , ordered Lang to revert his many corrections before firing him. Angered by VistaCorp's larceny, Lang broke into the Vistacorp Headquarters to hack their systems and pay back the money to Vistacorp's customers. He then broke into Geoff Zorick's Mansion and stole a few items before he got carried away and drove Zorick's car into the mansion's pool.
Lang was arrested and given a three-year sentence in San Quentin State Prison. Lang became very close to his cellmate, Luis , who was released the year before Lang was set to be. During his time in prison, Lang vowed to never get involved in crime again and focus his attention on helping to raise Cassie. Lang being interviewed by Christine Everhart. They talked about the reason behind his heist at Vistacorp ; however, Lang felt that the news station was being unfair, due to Vistacorp being one of their financial backers.
Lang being subdued by one of the guards. His animosity towards the remarks made by the seemingly biased news anchor, caused him to slam his hand onto the desk in frustration, resulting in him getting tased by police guard. Before being pardoned, Lang underwent a traditional good-bye ritual where he fought an inmate called Peachy. Lang allowed Peachy to hit him hard across the jaw and successfully stayed on his feet, he then retaliated by hitting his friend in the stomach, which Peachy did not react to.
Lang then attempted to distract Peachy and punched him, still failing to knock him down before he and the prisoners embraced. Having said his goodbyes, Lang was finally escorted out of prison, having been freed in the wake of robbing Vistacorp and allowed to have his freedom at last.
Being taken outside by two armed guards, Lang was then picked up by Luis. The pair happily embraced before Luis questioned how Lang had gained a cut across his eye, with Lang explaining it had come from Peachy while Luis recalled gaining his own scar from his goodbye punch from Peachy and boasting that he was the only one to ever knock him out with a single punch while they both got into his van to leave.
As they drove towards San Francisco , Lang thanked his friend for coming all that way out to pick him up before asking how Luis' own relationship with his girlfriend was going, only for Luis to tell him that she had left him.
Luis then informed Lang that much of his own life had gone bad, Luis' mother died and his father had gotten deported, all while Lang had been in prison, although Luis still looked on the positive side; at least he gained his parents' van, which Lang complimented was very nice, much to Luis' utter delight while they continued to make their way to the city to restart Lang's life.
Lang finally returns back to San Francisco. On the way to the Milgrom Hotel where Lang had been offered a sofa to sleep on for at least his first few weeks of being out of prison and back in the real world, Luis informed Lang of a place they could rob, claiming that he had recruited some highly skilled people who could assist them.
However, Lang flat out rejected the idea and claimed that he would not be sent back to prison due to having a daughter he had vowed to focus his efforts on.
As Lang was remaining confident that he would be able to find a job, as he still had a Master's Degree in electronics, Luis however, warned that ex-convicts usually struggled to get employment, although Lang insisted he would be fine.
Lang gets a terrible job at Baskin-Robbins. Lang obtained a job at Baskin-Robbins , going by the name of Jack; despite his degree in electronics, his criminal record would prevent him from getting a job as most potential employers would think he would revert back to crime, so going by an alias was the best choice.
One day, he got a dimwitted teenager as a customer, who kept asking for things that an ice cream shop did not sell. Despite all Lang's polite encouragement to realize he was in the wrong place for those orders, Dale , his manager, called for him allowing Lang to ask a fellow employee to handle the dimwit while he was gone.
Lang is soon fired from Baskin-Robbins. Inside Dale's office, Lang learned that Baskin-Robbins had found out about his past as the well-known criminal who was responsible for robbing Geoff Zorick and returning all of their money to his former customers and being sent to San Quentin State Prison.
Though a fan of his work against the corrupt Vistacorp , Dale was forced to fire Lang due to him lying on his application. Though as some consolation, Dale allowed Lang to take a free smoothie with him when he left and despite him being mortified by Dale's attitude to the situation, Lang took the free smoothie regardless and made his way back home.
Lang is introduced to Dave and Kurt. Arriving at the residence, Lang explained how he had just been fired before being introduced to Kurt and Dave , whom Luis had rounded up in hopes of helping in his planned heist if Lang agreed. Luis excitedly explained that Kurt had just gotten out of Folsom Prison and went into great detail about Lang's criminal career.
He quickly realized what was happening and once again insisted that he would not be going back to stealing as he intended to support his daughter , despite Luis' insistence that the billionaire they would be targeting would be the perfect victim. Lang still refused. On the very same day was Cassie Lang 's birthday party, which was being held at Jim Paxton 's house. Although he was not invited to the party she was having, Lang turned up at Paxton's home.
Cassie was delighted to see him and hugged her father tightly; he managed to give his gift to Cassie despite the cold treatment Paxton gave him. Ignoring Paxton's comments about him not being invited to the party, Lang handed his daughter her birthday present, an ugly rabbit toy which she instantly adored.
Lang has an argument with his ex-wife. Cassie then went to inform her mother of Lang's sudden arrival, much to Lang's dismay at being left with Paxton who berated him for failing to pay child support. When his ex-wife Maggie appeared, she asked to speak to Lang outside of their house. From there, they discussed a little bit of what Lang must do before he can visit Cassie again, with Lang insisting that he had a job and was not going back to crime before Maggie demanded that he leave their home and come back once he had gotten himself a job and was able to begin finally paying child support he currently owed to them.
Lang agrees to take the job with Luis ' crew. Lang was left depressed by this turn of events, as by the time he had saved enough money to pay child support to his ex-wife, he would have missed another two years of Cassie's life. This forced him to listen to Luis ' proposal about a crime, to make quick cash.
It turned out that the target was the safe belonging to a retired mogul whose money would be protected by insurance so nobody would really be hurt, the kind of target perfect for Lang's morals. With Lang now officially on board, they quickly began planning with Kurt and Dave as Lang took charge of the planning of the heist. Lang breaks into the Pym Residence.
With the help of his newly-found heist team, Lang was able to break into the Pym Residence easily, with Luis staying nearby and offering support from inside his van. Lang was soon slowed down, however, when he discovered the basement door had a fingerprint scanner he had not planned for.
Rather than giving up, Lang recreated a fingerprint using a ring, tape, glue, and some heat from the stove, unlocking the door and making his way downstairs. Lang found the vault, which was made of the same s material as the RMS Titanic and sparked a brief conversation between Dave and Kurt about the Titanic movie.
Thinking on his feet, Lang promptly created a freezing agent and poured it into the door, Lang explained to his confused friends over the radio that "ice expands, metal doesn't"; in a few minutes, the ice with burst the door open. He set up a blanket to catch the screws flying out and a mattress to soften the door's fall, and therefore keep any loud noises from alerting the nearby neighbors.
Lang finds and steals the Ant-Man Suit. As soon as the door was blown open, Lang immediately scanned the room for cash and other valuables, only to find nothing but a few hanging blueprints, some colored liquid contained in test tubes, and a suit with a helmet that seemed to be as a pair of motorcycling attire, informing Luis and the other two of the failure to find anything clearly worth any money.
Disappointed that all the security was just for an old outfit, Lang decided to take it anyway for his troubles; he likely planned to sell it at a later point to make a profit off this venture.
Unknown to Lang, Hank Pym had been watching everything he did, with a camera mounted on the back of an ant. Lang carefully examines the Pym Particles. The following day back at the Milgrom Hotel , Lang was alone in the apartment and looking himself in the mirror, considering what he should do next. Taking some time to look at what he stole, Lang studied the Pym Particles , unaware of their power before examining the Ant-Man Suit and there was a helmet, still assuming them to just be motorcycle gear.
Seeing that the suit was about his size, Lang then checked the suit and tried it on, standing in the bath to get a better look as he began admiring himself in the mirror. Looking over the suit's design, Lang saw buttons on each glove and began experimenting with them, while nothing happened when he pushed the one on the left glove, he pushed the one on the right, suddenly shrinking to a minuscule size, with even the plug hole of the bath appearing much larger than he was.
He promptly fell a great distance into the tub, frightened by his new perspective as he tried to figure out what had just happened and how this could be possible. While Lang continued to panic, Hank Pym used this chance to get through the suit and communicate with Lang, mocking him for his confusion about what was happening and explaining that this would be a trial by fire.
During their conversation, Luis arrived and stepped into the bathroom for a bath, causing Lang to have to run for his life as Luis turned on the tap, flooding the bath. The water caught up to Lang who was thrown from the bath and soon fell through a gap in the floor to the apartment below where he landed on a record player and held on as he was spun around uncontrollably. Lang continued to be thrown across the room without being noticed due to his small size, suffering from landing inside a vacuum cleaner and being attacked by a rat.
As Lang desperately ran away from the rat, he crashed into a mouse trap which launched him high into the air and out of a window, where he fell to the street below and landed on a car roof. While lying on the rooftop, Lang finally figured out how to grow back to normal size and freaked out about what he had just witnessed, wanting nothing more to do with the suit and its power.
Lang is arrested outside the Pym Residence. Lang broke back into the Pym Residence again to return the suit to the safe. However, on his way out, he was caught by police officers called by Hope van Dyne who were waiting outside.
Without thinking, Lang attempted to defend himself by claiming that he was not stealing anything but was instead returning something that he had stolen. This tactic failed, as he should have left out the part about being the one who had robbed the house in the first place, and Lang was handcuffed and taken straight back to jail. Lang is judged by Jim Paxton in his cell.

Ant-Man (Scott Lang)
Their explanation behind it shows how calculated each and every MCU movie is. Can you imagine how Ant-Man would have felt knowing all of his friends had turned to dust just before going into his own standalone film? Going on this decision, it tells us the psychological pulls of these movies are very well analyzed with every detail thought over carefully. The wait is over to bring home the biggest movie of all time!
Skip navigation! Story from Movies. The greatest thing Marvel ever did was make Paul Rudd an Avenger , so it should come as no surprise that his Ant-Man movies end up being incredibly important to the greater story in Avengers : Endgame. This old guy turns out to be Hank Pym, a former prominent member of S.
What role will Ant-Man play in Avengers: Endgame?
Watch it here! It's a different model than how the transition from Phase 1 to Phase 2 was treated, with the first team-up of The Avengers rounding out that first segment of Marvel's never-ending long-term story plans. At least, that's not it's purpose.
He is a reformed thief and an electronics expert. He was a member of the Avengers , the Fantastic Four and the Guardians of the Galaxy , the main character in the comic-book series FF and, in , he became the title character in the series Ant-Man. Scott Lang is an ex-convict and electronics expert hired by Stark International , which enables him to steal the Ant-Man suit from Hank Pym , who had long since given up the name, to help his sick daughter. When Pym finds out, he gives the suit to Lang, allowing him to become the second Ant-Man. As Ant-Man, he serves as an Avenger for years, until he is killed during the Avengers Disassembled storyline.
When fans walked out of Avengers: Infinity War , they were left with so many questions. How will the Marvel Cinematic Universe resolve that massive cliffhanger? Do the stakes in superhero movies really matter? And where, oh where, was Ant-Man Paul Rudd? Ant-Man was conspicuously missing from the throngs of superheroes who joined forces to fight Thanos Josh Brolin in the massive Avengers movie. While Captain America, Falcon, Black Widow and Scarlet Witch presumably went into hiding, the two dads—Hawkeye and Ant-Man—turned themselves into the government so they could be with their families. Scott also violated his parole. All is resolved with no hint that Thanos has yet attacked Earth.
While the film's directors, the Russo brothers, have remained tight-lipped about the upcoming blockbuster, trailers and cast interviews have hinted at how things will play out. Warning: potential spoilers ahead. However, despite such mass destruction, the future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe looks set in stone. With those sequels coming soon, we can assume those characters will be un-dusted and that the Avengers will defeat Thanos.
There have been a whopping seven Marvel films between the first Ant-Man and its sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp , so if your memory of where you last see Scott Lang is a little hazy, you're forgiven. As with most things MCU, timelines can get a bit complicated so we're here to help get you up to speed. In the original Ant-Man , Scott finds himself briefly fighting with Sam Wilson aka Falcon at the Avengers' Headquarters while trying to steal a piece of technology to assist in their heist. The film's after-credits scene actually takes place shortly after the beginning of what would be the next MCU film, Captain America: Civil War.
