Like a lot of films, there’s a good bit of seeding that goes on beforehand to get materials into the market, sometimes updates of previous works, sometimes new adaptations and sometimes its own thing. Marvel is doing the latter on June 3rd, 2015 with the debut of the Ant-Man: Natural Enemy prose novel from Jason Starr. The full lenth book is one that gives us the Scott Lang character but works at it from the comics side, putting the character into focus from that angle. The book comes from critically acclaimed crime writer Jason Starr (Twisted City, Wolverine MAX).
“Marvel’s exciting line of prose novels offer a completely new window into the Marvel Universe,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel. “Whether you’re an Ant-Man fan, or looking to experience a new story featuring the breakout character of 2015, this novel is going to be an exciting thrill ride from cover to cover.”
Plot concept: Meet Scott Lang: ex con, single parent and part-time super hero. Settling in to a new city with his teenage daughter, Cassie, can be hard enough. Yet when a criminal from Scott’s past comes gunning for them, his new beginning is in serious jeopardy. But is the killer after Scott — or the secrets of the Ant-Man technology?
Pushed to the brink, how far would Scott Lang go to protect his only child? Strap in as the Astonishing Ant-Man embarks on a twisted journey of desperation, secrets and adventure at a microscopic level in ANT-MAN: NATURAL ENEMY – coming in 2015!
