    Scott Lang became Ant-Man in the late 1970s, but hasn’t had much of a role in the Marvel Universe for awhile. He died during Avengers Disassembled (along with Hawkeye, Vision, and Jack of Hearts), and then his daughter Cassie used his gear to become Stature in the Young Avengers.

    Scott was brought back to life in the Young Avengers: Children’s Crusade mini-series, and he’s now starring in the Marvel NOW! Future Foundation series.

    I honestly think the primary reason why the ST poster looks like the Dark Knight poster is because the marketing department handling this movie is not very original. The trailer for ST also uses the exact tone/sound/music? that Prometheus used, as well as the same building tempo.
