List Rules Vote up the reasons why you're going to see Ant-Man in theaters!

The Ant-Man movie hits theaters in July 2015, and though it may be another risk taken by Marvel Studios, much like Guardians of the Galaxy was, it's a no brainer that the film will make Disney much more money that they don't need. Still, there are those out there, comic book enthusiasts included, who have their doubts about the quality of the film. We're here to put these hesitations about the film to rest and have everyone going to the theaters now to pre-order their tickets.

Many were upset that Ant-Man, one of the founding members of the Avengers wasn't included in the first Avengers film, or even Avengers: Age of Ultron. And now, to have Iron Man being the one to create Ultron, one of the distinguishing traits Ant-Man has in the Marvel comics, it's as if Joss Whedon and the rest of them behind the Marvel movie franchise just stabbed Ant-Man in the back. 

Why should you go see Ant-Man? Will Ant-Man be the greatest Marvel film ever? This film has been in development for over a decade, with (the director at the time) Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish writing up a script. Since then, Ant-Man has become the film to close out Marvel's Phase Two and Wright jumped ship, which left fans wondering why. 

Well, put those uncertainties to rest and see why Marvel's Ant-Man could possibly be a much bigger (Get it? Size pun.) movie than all the Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and Avengers films combined.
