"Ant-Man" Crawling To The Big Screen

According to reports, Marvel Studios have trademarked the name "Irredeemable Ant-Man", in anticipation of director Edgar Wright's upcoming feature, starring actor Paul Rudd, adapting the Marvel Comics title, written by "The Walking Dead" creator Robert Kirkman:

"...introducing the world’s worst superhero! When a 'S.H.I.E.L.D.' agent gets a hold of a new 'Ant-Man' suit from inventor 'Hank Pym', you know there's going to be trouble. He’s not concerned with saving the world. He’s concerned with getting through the day and getting a leg up on life!

"'Ant-Man' aka 'Eric O'Grady' is a low-level agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. who stumbles upon Dr. Henry Pym's latest incarnation of the Ant-Man suit in S.H.I.E.L.D.'s headquarters. A man of very few morals and willingness to lie, cheat, steal, and manipulate in order to get ahead in life, Eric immediately steals the armor for his own selfish plans, which include using his status as a 'super-hero' to stalk women and facilitate his thievery..."

While wearing the Ant-Man armor, O'Grady has the ability to shrink to the size of an insect while retaining full-sized strength. He also possesses two robotic arms he can release from the back of his armor when he is shrunk. 

The armor's main mode of transportation is a jetpack that can be detached and used as a weapon by turning the jet's flames onto an enemy. He also has the ability to talk to insects while wearing the suit. However, he has not quite trained in this ability and is somewhat lacking in skill.
