Much better. With this first full trailer for Ant-Man, the overdose of sentimentality found in the teaser trailer has been pushed aside and in its place comes some of the action and the introduction of a villain. The villain is identified as Darren Cross (Corey Stoll), a defense contractor who manufactures the ultimate secret weapon — a suit for soldiers that increases their power exponentially as they shrink in size. Not comfortable with his work being used for war purposes Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) convinces small time burglar Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) to steal the prototype, become the Ant-Man and stop manufacturing. Little do they realize Cross has other prototypes and as the Yellowjacket, he aims to stop them. Check out the befriending of ants, the impressive effects of miniaturization and the riveting scene in which Thomas the Tank Engine — in a cinematic first — wreaks havoc.
