Well, it’s here. The trailer for Marvel’s Ant-Man that was teased by the ant-sized (and ant-brained, if you ask me) teaser trailer last week is here. But don’t expect much from it other than the film’s star, Paul Rudd, sporting a perplexed look for most of it, Michael Douglas looking a lot like his father Kirk, and an overdose of treacle. I won’t wholly dismiss it though; Marvel has the golden superhero touch and I expect them to give this relatively unknown hero the same treatment they gave “Guardians of the Galaxy.” Time will tell, I suppose. So until more presents itself to say otherwise, enjoy watching Mr. Rudd fly a wasp in the trailer above.
Ant-Man stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Hayley Atwell, Judy Greer, Corey Stoll, Michael Douglas and Michael Peña.
Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man 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.
Ant-Man shrinks in US and UK theaters on July 17, 2015.
