According to Badass Digest, Ant-Man has undergone a few key changes during reshoots which have brought the movie back closer to where it was when Edgar Wright was still attached to write and direct. Now, Scott Lang is expected to be more of a crook when the movie kicks off, similar to his comic book counterpart. The change in description from “con-man” to “master thief” in the updated synopsis really bothered some fans at first.
The site theorises that the success of Guardians of the Galaxy might have had something to do with Marvel now feeling comfortable reintroducing these roguish aspects of Scott’s personality. Latino-Review’s Umberto Gonzalez meanwhile adds that,
“One of the things I heard is that they’re making Scott a criminal again with these reshoots, putting back the plot point they originally demanded be cut from Edgar Wright’s draft.”
