Marvel’s Ant-Man Will Be Released in Cinemas on 16 July 2015. Leading up to the opening of the next Marvel blockbuster of 2015, Marvel’s Ant-Man, Walt Disney Studios has appointed local celebrity, Aaron Aziz, as the Ant-Man Celebrity Ambassador for Malaysia to bring the Ant-Man character and action closer to Malaysians.
Embodying a similar charisma and the positive attributes that Scott Lang, otherwise known as Ant-Man possess, Aaron Aziz has always been viewed as a positive celebrity role-model in Malaysia.
Known to be a doting and hands-on father, fans also see Aaron Aziz as a strong, persistent and yet humourous celebrity figure. Similarly in Marvel’s Ant-Man, Scott Lang is a good hearted, good humoured man who has been put into a bind because of his past. He constantly tries to make things right for his daughter Cassie, to become a real father and the hero she sees him as.

About Ant-Man/Scott Lang
Despite having turned to crime in his past in order to support his family, Scott is inherently a good man. His one goal in life after being released from jail is to become a real father to his young daughter, Cassie. Although he may not appear to be the prototypical hero on paper, Scott’s physical agility, expertise in technology and strong moral compass make him an ideal candidate to take on the mantle of Ant-Man. In doing so, Scott is tasked with a mission by Hank Pym to steal the Yellowjacket suit, a technology that could destroy the world as we know it.
