In Marvel Studios' Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, we learn that Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) has written a mémoire, which he reads an excerpt from at a book signing shortly before getting pulled into the Quantum Realm for a face-off with Kang the Conqueror.
It was recently announced that the full book, "Look Out for the Little Guy," was completed, and is now available for pre-order.
We're not sure who actually wrote it, as Marvel is keeping things as Kayfaybe (to borrow a wrestling term) as possible, but we do have a lengthy excerpt featuring Lang explaining why he decided to document his adventures with the Avengers prior to the events of Quantumania.
It makes for a fairly interesting read, as Scott takes us back to his life before the first Ant-Man movie, giving us some more insight as to why he wound up behind bars and his inspiration for attempting to turn his life around.
"In a word, I’m an ordinary guy who’s been thrust—more than once—into extraordinary circumstances. And I know that still doesn’t completely answer the question of why I wrote this book. The simple answer is, 'The Avengers asked me to.'
One day, Bruce “the Hulk” Banner and Clint “Hawkeye” Barton took me out for lunch. They said they were concerned that the world didn’t really know what had happened with Thanos and the Blip and our long struggle to finally put things right again. At first, as I usually do when confronted with heavy topics, I made a joke: 'I’m pretty sure at least half the world knows what happened.' Bruce responded that yes, of course, billions had experienced these jarring and mind-bending events, but they didn’t know the full story behind them. And ultimately, that’s what people need the most to get through and get past traumatic events: a narrative that helps it all make sense.
'Okay,' I agreed. 'Solid plan. So who are you going to get to tell that story?' Clint answered, 'You, Scott. You’re the guy who got scooped up in all this pretty recently. You’ve still got one foot in their world. And you’re a guy everyone likes . . . and trusts.' And Bruce sealed the deal: 'It’s tough stuff, and no one knows how to keep it light like you.'
Well. I still had tons of doubts. I was hardly an eyewitness to almost all that history. I hadn’t been around for the Battle of Wakanda, or any of the events that led to Thanos gathering the various Infinity Stones."
