ANT-MAN: Paul Rudd’s Got This in New TV Spot; Plus Penny-Sized Action Figure Revealed

     June 16, 2015


We’re almost exactly one month away from the release of Marvel’s second film of 2015, Ant-Man, and while anticipation (predictably) isn’t as high as it was for Avengers: Age of Ultron, curiosity certainly abounds. This is a unique Marvel movie for a number of reasons, not the least of which because it’s the most high-profile case yet of the studio running into serious troubles in development/pre-production, as co-writer/director Edgar Wright departed with casting nearly complete.

It’s also unique in terms of character and set pieces, as the scale of the film has to be both huge and minuscule at the same time. Visualizing this concept couldn’t have been an easy task, but new director Peyton Reed drew from some of Wright’s storyboards to capture these action-y moments on film, and we’ll get to see if Reed and Marvel succeeded in just a few short weeks.

But for now, Marvel Studios has released a new TV spot for the film that’s the most action-packed yet, while also maintaining the humorous tone we expected all along.

Additionally, a few Comic-Con exclusive Ant-Man toys have been unveiled, and one in particular is quite clever. A 0.75-inch figure—smaller than a penny—will be on sale via Hasbro at San Diego Comic-Con next month for $9.99. The packaging is size-appropriate (it’s a matchbox), but boy is this thing gonna be easy to lose. Hasbro also unveiled a set of more conventional figures that will be available for $64.99.
