‘What’s the Deal?’ With Marvel’s ‘Ant-Man': Big Laughs, Heart Prove Size Only Matters So Much (Video)

TheWrap’s film reporter Jeff Sneider had a blast with Peyton Reed’s comic book movie and its star Paul Rudd

After striking box office gold with “Iron Man,” “The Avengers” and “Guardians of the Galaxy,” Marvel faces its biggest test yet with “Ant-Man,” which hits theaters this Friday following a very public development process that included the departure of director Edgar Wright.

Marvel has a lot riding on such a small superhero, but as star/co-writer Paul Rudd proves, size only matters so much. “Ant-Man” has big laughs, big insects and most importantly, big heart.

In this week’s What’s the Deal? with Jeff Sneider, TheWrap‘s vacationing film reporter offers his take on why “Ant-Man” works and how director Peyton Reed, co-writer Adam McKay and Kevin Feige rescued a film that was on the brink of disaster according to some pessimistic corners of the press.

Watch the video below and leave a comment after you’ve seen “Ant-Man” to let Sneider know how it measures up to other Marvel movies.
