Marvel & Google Take You Deeper Into the World of 'Ant-Man'

Newsfront With Christine Everhart
Explore the story of Marvel's 'Ant-Man' with 4 original in-world videos!
The story of Marvel’s “Ant-Man” deepened in exciting new ways in the past few weeks as we partnered with Google for a series of in-world videos from the Marvel Cinematic Universe!
Three videos from WHIH News and another from WIRED Insider gave you more of the backstory on Scott Lang, Darren Cross, and Hank Pym leading up to the film, but don’t worry if you missed any because we’ve collected them all here for you on Marvel.com.
First, Mashable broke a video featuring Christine Everhart covering not only the aftermath of the Avengers’ battle with Ultron in Sokovia, but also a profile on Scott Lang. Ahead of Lang’s release from prison, Everhart reminded viewers about Lang’s story as she announced an exclusive interview with the man on the eve of his release from prison. Learn more about Lang’s Robin Hood-style crime against Vista Corp after the company stole millions from its customers below:
Next, Buzzfeed brought fans security footage of Scott Lang’s break-in to the Vista Corp CEO’s home, where he accessed the comanpy’s secure database in order to return $4,000,000 to tens of thousands of allegedly mismanaged customers. Before Scott fled the scene, though, he disengaged the house’s exterior cameras, and the homeowner’s car managed to find a unique new parking spot while the cameras were off:
Meanwhile, WIRED Insider sat down with Pymtech CEO Darren Cross. During the profile, Cross spoke about how what really intrigued him with the company was what he found in the group’s cold storage, while also hinting at a major new product coming from Pymtech. Cross also addressed allegations that he’d forced the company’s founder Hank Pym out in order to take charge himself before the interview was abruptly cut short:
Finally, Everhart delivered on her promise of an exclusive interview with Lang prior to his release from prison in a video posted once again by Mashable. During the interview, Lang defended his actions and reiterated his claims that Vista Corp had defrauded tens of thousands of its customers and that his “theft” was actually a “refund” to those same victims. Tensions flared between Lang and Everhart, however, and you can see how the interview went down yourself right here:
