An Ant-Man promo banner has found its way online, and it provides the first look at the film’s villain, Yellowjacket. The upcoming film stars Paul Rudd as thief Scott Lang, who must team up with Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) to pull off a heist that will save the world. In the tradition of Iron Man when it comes to a person in a super-powered suit fighting another person in a similar super-powered suit, it looks like Ant-Man will meet his match with Yellowjacket, who has a pretty rad outfit. It’s certainly better than Ant-Man other nemesis, a shoe.
Hit the jump to check out the Ant-Man promo art. The film opens July 17, 2015, and also stars Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Tip “Ti” Harris, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris, Jordi Mollà, and Michael Peña. As we previously reported, we should be seeing a trailer very soon.
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.
