-Picture it: 1980s, New World Communications Group purchases Marvel Entertainment wanting to adapt the characters to the big screen.
-New World ends up producing a Punisher movie that fails so of course their next thought is to make an Antman movie thanks to Stan Lees input.
-Disney was in the process of making Teenie Weenies (later known as Honey I Shrunk The Kids) but New World planned on rushing Antman into production to beat Disney.
-New World runs into money issues and isn't able to beat Disney and not wanting to look like a copy cat they scrap Antman and sell the Marvel rights back to marvel.
