It’s hard to believe that Ant-Man is finally coming out this summer, but that will change once Avengers: Age of Ultron hits theaters later this month. After that I’d expect Marvel to go into a serious upswing when it comes to marketing director Peyton Reed’s first film in the MCU. Today saw the release of a new pic of Corey Stoll‘s Yellowjacket doing battle with Paul Rudd‘s Ant-Man. It’s not our first look at either character, but it’s fun and reminds us of the inherent size difference between these two foes.
Check out the new Ant-Man image below. The film also stars Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Abby Ryder Fortson, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris, Gregg Turkington, T.I. and John Slattery, and is due 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.
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.
