Back in March of 1979, Margot Kidder was the host of ‘Saturday Night Live,’ which gave the cast a chance to play dress-up. Bill Murray is a daft Superman to Kidder’s Lois Lane, but it’s John Belushi who steals the show as the Hulk. Garrett Morris, meanwhile,plays a feckless Ant-Man and takes plenty of grief from the snarky Flash (Dan Aykroyd) -- who would have guessed that all these years later it would be the picnic-threatening Ant-Man who would be headed to the silver screen at a quicker pace than the Fastest Man Alive ?
