Guess what?: Daniel Mananta is ‘Ant-man’?

TV personality Daniel Mananta, 33, says he relates to Marvel superhero Ant-Man in many ways.

"Ant-Man's playful personality is so me. I'm also a fan of the actor, Paul Rudd. He is lively and funny," he said.

The clothing businessman, film producer and rapper was recently appointed the movie character's ambassador. The movie will be released in Indonesia next month.

Besides the character's personality, Ant-Man is also a family man who would go to any length for his loved ones.

"I can relate with his efforts to protect his family, but I would not go as far as to break the law," said the father of one as quoted by on Thursday.

Ant-Man, a comic character originally created by Stan Lee, was assumed by different characters and they were all related to the Avengers.

In the film, which has already premiered in the US, Scott Lang steals the Ant-Man costume to save his daughter.

"There is another similarity […] I'm also a thief, but I only steal hearts," Daniel quipped.
