In preparation for the upcoming release of Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania, Marvel Studios and Disney may have excelled themselves by publishing a true autobiography, Look Out For The Little Guy, which was most obviously not written by Paul Rudd.
All of that may seem a bit confusing, but that’s on purpose; Marvel appears to be upping the ante on meta-marketing by continuing to make fun of Lang’s newfound fame in the MCU, a plot point that was hinted at in the Ant-Man 3 trailers. After all, Ms. Marvel herself brought up Lang’s appearance in the episode of This Powered Life with the title “Big Me Little Me: A Scott Lang Interview,” which may have served as a prelude to Look Out For The Little Guy.
Rudd is seen in a video recording the audiobook version of Look Out for the Little Guy when Marvel Studios made this strange announcement. For more information, Rudd explains how this movie prop came to be in this 100% authentic book, which is now available for pre-order on Amazon and Disney’s bookstore for $26.99. The book will be a recreation of Lang’s MCU bestseller, even though Look Out for the Little Guy won’t be available until later this year, on September 5, to be precise.
The Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania teasers suggest that Scott and Cassie Lang may face more challenging challenges than promoting book sales. The Avengers’ most deadly adversary to date is already being portrayed as Kang the Conqueror. Though Quantumania hints Lang’s day of reckoning is drawing close, it will be fascinating to watch whether Ant-celebrity Man’s affects his relationship with his daughter. Given that Kang’s abilities are so powerful and that there is speculation among Marvel fans that the superhero may die in Ant-Man 3, an autobiography would be the ideal marketing ploy and honour to this Avenger. He could also appear in programmes premiering around that time, such as Loki season 2 and Ironheart, because the book’s publication has been delayed by more than six months.
In addition to being a fun collectible, it’s intriguing to speculate as to what kinds of anecdotes and wisdom might be concealed in Ant-memoirs, Man’s so it might be best to heed the advice of the little guy and keep in mind that this book won’t change anyone’s life.
