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."

Gonna be filled with more woke nonsense. Pass.

@Arnod - "Is the woke in the room with us now?"

Probably will be more entertaining than Antman 3, definitely the weakest of the trilogy IMO.

I feel like Marvel Studios learned a lot when it comes to Thor Love and Thunder and Ant Man and the Wasp Quantumania. Not every MCU hero needs to be comedic and over the top. Wakanda Forever and Shang Chi showed why it's importance to balance light hearted moments with serious ones. And Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 3 showed the studio why it's important to focus on the story and make a great villain without the need for one upping the last movie.

@SonOfAGif - Imagine if Thor was like Lord of the Rings in space. It can have a little levity, but Thor shouldn’t be intentionally comedic. I would love to see some proper 9 realms, some badass battles, powerful heroes and creatures and some weight and gravitas.
SonOfAGif - 8/15/2023, 3:39 PM
@mountainman - That's why I want a Thor 5 with Beta Ray Bill and Beta Ray having lost everything found peace in all of it but calls out Thor for his denial and lack of acceptance and overuse of humor to mask his pain. It would be a great arc for Thor to finally admit that his use of humor and never taking things serious is from all the pain and suffering he has endured and how he has not once sat back to make peace with it all.
mountainman - 8/15/2023, 3:50 PM
@SonOfAGif - Love it.

I had this expectation for Thor 2, partially because it pulled a director from some awesome Game of Thrones episodes, that it would be this epic cross-realm movie. We know how that turned out (but in hindsight it’s better than L&T in my opinion).

Ragnarok was good, even if it had more humor than it should have. Sakaar, Surtur and Hela were fairly well done.

L&T could have been epic had it been written better. Mighty Thor and Gorr are some epic storylines. How cool would it have been if Gorr was actually scary and we some some crazy deity slaughtering and some epic cosmic beings?

Beta Ray Bill makes the most sense for the next one. Maybe make Mangog the main villain.
SonOfAGif - 8/15/2023, 5:09 PM
@mountainman - Mangog should indeed be the physical villain but the background villain should be Hela again. And she is trapped in Helheim and she used all of the dead souls who hate Odin and Thor and forged them into the being Mangog so he can run amok. Her goal is the harvest enough souls to recreate her physical form to traverse back to life.
mountainman - 8/15/2023, 5:33 PM
@SonOfAGif - Dang I like the idea of Helheim being more involved overall.

Could also easily integrate Niffleheim as it is closely related.

And if they really want to go big, could integrate either Alfheim or Vanaheim as a good army that could help the heroes.

@SonOfAGif - but I mean, what pain? Ragnarok had him being a clown before he had lost anything.
SonOfAGif - 8/16/2023, 4:39 PM
@Razorface1 - I don't think he knew the severity of what was truly happening. It wasn't until Heimdall spoke to him that Thor understood how severe it was. And once he returned to Asgard he was very serious and determined to help save his people.
Razorface1 - 8/16/2023, 5:16 PM
@SonOfAGif - I must have missed that between all the jokes. Plus, my point still stands, he wasn't using humor to mask pain, he was like that before anything happened in that movie.

paul rudd is such a likeable guy, and a good actor...whether he wrote this or not, hearing it in his/ant-mans voice will probably be entertaining.
SonOfAGif - 8/15/2023, 3:39 PM
@soupysales - Missed opportunity for Marvel to not have him do the audio for the live reading.
Matchesz - 8/15/2023, 7:39 PM
@SonOfAGif - missed opportunity to not have luis do it
soupysales - 8/16/2023, 1:42 PM
@SonOfAGif - totally...or as matchesz said, luis...that would have been a hoot

Why hasn't no one posted the toxic avenger story here yet? I didn't know peter dink was playing him
WhatIfRickJames - 8/15/2023, 2:54 PM
I like Paul Rudd as Antman. I didn’t think his performance was good in QM.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 8/15/2023, 3:12 PM
I'm surprised it has so many pages. This is legit lol.
Omario - 8/15/2023, 3:27 PM
I find it funny they still only use the word "Blip".
Razorface1 - 8/16/2023, 2:31 PM
@Omario - that is terrible. When it first showed up I thought it was supposed to be a funny dumb term used by Peter's classmates, and then it turns out it was the official term...
mountainman - 8/15/2023, 3:28 PM
Even though Quantumania was a dud, the concept behind this book actually sounds interesting. If it is written well, I could actually dig this. This normal dude gets, who is a former convict, gets drawn into world ending battles with literal gods.
mountainman - 8/15/2023, 4:02 PM
@mountainman - Oof just read that excerpt. I guess good writing is out of the question with this. Pass.
ziexxx - 8/15/2023, 4:28 PM
@mountainman - Okay Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
mountainman - 8/15/2023, 4:30 PM
@ziexxx - Maybe I’m just someone that doesn’t like to read dialog that reads like it’s written for grade schoolers. I’m sure it’ll sell like hot cakes at the scholastic book fair.
