Disney and Marvel Studios have unveiled a few new images from the upcoming superhero pic Ant-Man that further illuminate the film’s supporting cast. Directed by Peyton Reed (Bring It On), the movie stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, a master thief who attempts to turn his life around by helping his mentor, Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), protect the secret behind the Ant-Man suit. Standing in his way is Darren Cross (Corey Stoll), an ambitious mover and shaker at Pym Industries with plans of his own for the Ant-Man technology.
These new images highlight the film’s supporting cast led by Michael Peña (one of Edgar Wright’s final casting decisions before departing the film), Tip “T.I.” Harris, and David Dastmalchian. If Ant-Man’s hook is that it’s Marvel’s “heist film”, it appears that this trio makes up Rudd’s team of thieves, though they’re a far cry from Ocean’s Eleven.
Check out the images below, via Marvel. The film also stars Evangeline Lilly, Bobby Cannavale, Wood Harris, and Judy Greer. Ant-Man runs at 117 minutes in length and opens in theaters on July 17th.
Here’s the official synopsis for Ant-Man:
The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man.” Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
