Marvel's upcoming Ant-Man movie is looking like a very loose adaptation of the character in every sense of the word, and whilst we may be seeing a very different take of Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne, it at least looks like we'll be getting a faithful adaptation of Scott Lang's character. In a recent interview with Screen Rant, Peyton Reed confirmed that Lang's daughter, Cassie Lang, would be a part of the movie.
Whilst talking about the themes of the movie, Peyton commented that it has a "real personal dynamic", then elaborating on that comment by saying "in the comics Scott Lang has a daughter, and that's part of the movie too." So, unless Marvel are pulling another Hope Van Dyne, it seems that Cassie will definitely be a part of Ant-Man, which makes sense given her role in the To Steal An Ant-Man story - which the movie appears to be based on.
Reed was also asked about the challenge of putting a character whose superpower is commanding an army of ants, describing the ability as "mobilising an army". He again confirmed that it's a "passing of the torch movie", plus yet again also called it a "heist movie." Not too much new stuff, but at least it all seems in good hands! Ant-Man will hit theaters July 17th, 2015.
