Tonight during the MTV Movie Awards, Marvel premiered an Ant-Man trailer teaser. The upcoming film starts Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, a thief who works with brilliant inventor Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) to pull off a heist that will save the world.
Ant-Man feels like the lost film of the MCU right now. Iron Man 3 had an entire year to follow The Avengers; Ant-Man has two months to follow Avengers: Age of Ultron. The movie also isn’t the start of Phase Three, so it’s a post-script for a new hero that could use the support. I hope the film doesn’t get squished, and hopefully the full trailer will get people interested in the little hero.
Check out the Ant-Man trailer teaser below, and come back tomorrow for the full trailer. The film opens July 17th, and also stars July 17th, and also stars Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Abby Ryder Fortson, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris, Judy Greer, Gregg Turkington, T.I., and John Slattery.
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.
Marvel’s “Ant-Man” stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, Corey Stoll as Darren Cross aka Yellowjacket, Bobby Cannavale as Paxton, Michael Peña as Luis, Judy Greer as Maggie, Tip “Ti” Harris as Dave, David Dastmalchian as Kurt, Wood Harris as Gale, Jordi Mollà as Castillo and Michael Douglas as Hank Pym. Directed by Peyton Reed and produced by Kevin Feige, Marvel’s “Ant-Man” delivers a high-stakes, tension-filled adventure on July 17, 2015.
