Default Should Ant Man fight a giant spider?

I was thinking, the first thing that comes to people's minds when they think of shrinking is fighting giant bugs. Its in almost every movie where the character shrinks, the Incredible Shrinking Man, Honey I Shrunk the Kids, Lord of the Rings, etc. So, do you think they should show Hank Pym fighting a giant thing like a Spider or a scorpion or a bug?
Personally I almost think its too cliché, but I am also biased because I have a friend who couldn't watch that part of Lord of the Rings.
Also what about swarms of bugs? Should they show swarms of ants? Or ants swarming all over a guy? I know its Hank's thing, but my friend also doesn't like swarms. Just wondering.

I think it would be a stupid move, it would make him look somewhat pathetic.

I think they should do it as a joke. Have Ant-Man be small & then a "giant" spider makes a grand entrance, only for Ant-Man to grow back to normal size & stomp on it.

I say yes only if they're paying homage to Honey I Shrunk the Kids, but other than that, I don't really wanna see him fighting bugs.

Yeah, I think it would be a great comedic sequence, but leave it at that, imho.

I think Ant-Man should fight a giant, mutated beetle that plans to conquer humanity.

I think Tony or Clint could make a joke about it

I like the idea of the giant spider, but only if they have a cameo of Clint Eastwood as a fighter pilot firing missiles at it...oh wait, that's been done...

Did anyone else notice that all of those ants have hands?!? Back when I was a kid I used to play with ants and none of them had digits on their extremities. Ant-Man's ants are green, though, so it's safe to assume that they're gamma-irradiated mutant ants. That would explain the hands.

Fighting bugs? nah. Maybe a suspense sequence before he learns he can communicate with them through the helmet, but that would be all I'd care to see. Swarms of ants crawling all over people though? Hell yes.
