List Rules Your favorite quotable lines from Ant-Man.

Ant-Man movie quotes bring the insect-sized Marvel superhero to theaters for a feature film. Following the classic story of saving the world, the film was written by Edgar Wright, Joe Cornish, Adam McKay and Paul Rudd and directed by Peyton Reed. Screening in 3D and IMAX 3D, Ant-Man opened in theaters on July 17, 2015.

In Ant-Man, con man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) is in the market for redemption, especially with his young daughter, which comes in especially handy when Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), mastermind behind the shrinking technology that allows humans to reduce themselves to the size of an ant, needs a hand.

See Pym's protege Darren Cross (Corey Stoll) has taken over Pym's company and is using the shrinking technology for evil. Cross created the Yellowjacket suit and is now using it to take over the world. The only way to stop him is to use that same technology against him to steal the suit and save the world. It won't be easy, especially as Lang has little experience with the technology, but if he's successful, he will bring redemption to himself and others in the process.

Also starring Evangeline Lilly, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Pena, Tip "T.I." Harris, Wood Harris and Judy Greer, Ant-Man opened alongside the likes of Minions, Self/less, Terminator Genisys, and Boulevard.

Hank Pym: Scott, I've been watching you for a while. You're different. Second chances don't come around all that often. I suggest you take a really close look at it. This is your chance to earn that look in your daughter's eyes, to become the hero that she already thinks you are. I believe everyone deserves a shot at redemption. Do you?
Scott Lang: Absolutely! My days of breaking into places and stealing stuff are over. What do you need me to do?
Hank Pym: I want you to break in a place and steal some stuff.
Scott Lang: Makes sense
Hank Pym: Are you ready to become a hero?

Hank approaches Scott to ask him if he wants to be the hero, if he wants to be Ant-Man. His pitch is a good one and Scott bites hook, line and sinker.

Dive Through the Keyhole

Hank Pym: In the right hands, the relationship between man and the suit is symbiotic. The suit has power. The man harnesses that power. You need to be skillful, agile and, above all, you need to be fast. You should be able to shrink and grow on a dime so your size always suits your needs. Now dive through the keyhole, Scott. You charge big, you dive small then you emerge big.
Scott Lang: Ow!
Hope Van Dyne: Useless!

Hank spends some time with Scott to get Scott familiar with how to navigate in the suit. There's a bit of a learning curve, to say the least.

Hope Van Dyne: Now, the suit has power, and you have to learn how to control it and these are your greatest allies. When you're small, you have superhuman strength. You're like a bullet so you need to learn how to punch.
Scott Lang: You want to show me how to punch? Show me how to punch?
Hope Van Dyne: That's how you punch.

Hope gives Scott some tips on how to be effective as Ant-Man, including teaching him how to punch. He felt confident in his skills before their lesson, but learns something unexpected in the process.

Hank Pym: The world sure seems different from down here, doesn't it, Scott?
Scott Lang: Who said that?
Hank Pym: It's a trial by fire, Scott, or, in this case, water. Guess you're tougher than you thought.

When testing out the Ant-Man suit, Scott finds himself in a slippery situation. His buddies can't see him in the bathtub so when one turns on the water, the ant-sized Scott has to learn really fast how to defend himself.
