7 Things Scott Lang Could Have Covered On His Ant-Man Podcast


Through just a few episodes Mrs Miracle is already chock full of Easter eggs sure to please fans. One of the most intriguing nods to an unknown but referenced canon was Kamala’s subscription to a podcast called This driven life.

It features a Scott Lang episode titled “Big Me Little Me” which begs the question of what Scott could be discussing on such a platform and provoked the MCU fan base enough to demand the production of a real life version . Scott’s interview might even be the reason it was taped Rogers: The Musical although he wasn’t part of the Battle of New York as he may have fibbed a bit when telling stories.


The Mad Titan himself

After the world-changing events of Infinite War and endgame, there’s little chance an Avenger interview could be conducted on any platform without addressing the boogeyman himself. Thanos directly changed the life of every single being in the universe, whether their loved ones faded out or they themselves turned to ashes for five years.

Of course, Scott was asked what it was like fighting the purple titan that had become such a feared household name. Lang would certainly have described the horror of battling the galactic behemoth, albeit with a tongue-in-cheek quintessential Ant-Man’s humor in dealing with intense adversity, as he did civil war and navigating the quantum realm.

Avengers unite

Avengers Endgame

Few moments are more iconic in the avenger Saga as the final assembly of virtually every MCU character to have hit the big screen up to that point, and as exciting as it was for audiences in theaters, fans can only imagine what it might have been like to be a part Stand by your strength, pause for a majestic moment and await Captain America’s long-overdue battle cry in Avengers canon.

In this scene, Scott had grown to his greatness while rescuing himself, Banner, Rhodey, and Rocket from the ruins of the destroyed Avengers compound, and due to his huge form was one of the leading charges, defeating a Leviathan with a single punch . It would certainly be something to announce to avid podcasters hungry for insider Avenger scoops.

The ugly brown van

Luis' Van Ant-Man

One of the most humorous callbacks to the ant man Series during the events of endgame was the presence of Luiz’ vehicle and its precious cargo, a backup quantum tunnel used by Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne to send Scott back to the Quantum Realm and thus his “escape” from Thanos’ snapshot and chance chance (assisted by a now infamous rat) to set things straight.

Cap and Valkyrie find the van during the final fight and send Scott and Hope there hoping to return the Infinity Stones to where they belong, although Thanos of course intervenes. It’s almost certain that Scott would mention his role in the scheme of things, given how the events of Avengers: Endgame would have gone very differently.

His daughter Cassie

Bottom line, Scott is all about his daughter Cassie Lang, both in the books and on screen. In nearly every film he’s appeared in, he almost always focuses on his need to be a good father. In his debut film he is constantly trying to make up for lost time after his time in prison, and in the second film he plays with her despite being under house arrest under the Sokovia Accords.

She’s the first person he thinks of when he returns from the quantum realm and immediately chases her down and prays she wasn’t hidden too. Scott would love to profess his love for his daughter during an interview, likely claiming that she’s the only reason he’s doing hero work in the first place.

Up and down and all around

Giant-Man in Ant-Man and the Wasp

Every avenging hero is inevitably interviewed about their respective powers. While Scott probably wouldn’t go into too much detail as to the secret science of the Pym particles and his suit, he would certainly be in demand and more than happy to share certain aspects of quantum mechanics and what it’s like to go to subatomic and giant sizes shrink.

The MCU’s Ant-Man would likely tout benefits in increasing mass density, making him stronger and more bullet-like. Conversely, he would also talk about how growing to such impressive sizes, while large, comes with its own risks in terms of relative movement, which is why he’s always in danger of swooning or asking for “orange slices” after it.

Tony Stark’s funeral

It would be very hard to avoid referencing the last respects paid to the man who literally saved the entire MCU. In a podcast interview, Scott could take one of several avenues to discuss the somber event. He could comment on the diversity of the gathered mourners, from Wakandas to Guardians to Asgardians.

On the other hand, he could talk about how he and Tony Stark got off to a rocky start in the events of Captain America: Civil War and their elbow rubbing during the “Time Waster” debates first in Tony’s cabin and then back to the bygone New York of 2012 before Steve and Tony travel back to the ’70s. In any case, Earth podcasters would surely ask any willing Avenger to chat about their relationship with Iron Man.

The Return of Hope Van Dyne

It’s actually a pet peeve of many Marvel fans that Scott Lang and Hope Van Dyne’s reunion after a five-year intermittent absence wasn’t addressed more directly. While the Russo brothers managed to pack way too much content into the last 30 minutes of the Infinity Saga’s conclusion, Scott and Hope limit themselves to a quick, friendly nod before driving off to crank up the van’s quantum tunnel.

Scott’s primary motivation for reversing the blip was based around the loss of Hope, and he would certainly have taken a more emotional hit had she returned. Given Scott’s often emotional state during his antics, it’s guaranteed he’d rant and gush to podcast subscribers about the Wasp’s arrival on the scene.
