A couple of hours ago, Marvel debuted a trailer for ANt-Man, that was full of hot ant on ant action. I’m going to shut up now so that you can watch it:
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.
Well, that was a lot more sombre than I was expecting. Every Marvel movie has had a different feel so far, and while Guardians Of The Galaxy was far more fun than previous efforts, Ant-Man feels like a more personal story judging by this first trailer. A story about redemption and heroism where character development is front and center.
Marvel has been pushing the “heist” factor of the film for a while now, which is largely non-existent in the trailer. Although at this point, that could be giving too much away. It’s not a bad first look, and I’m looking forward to seeing a more fleshed out preview soon when the film hits later this year.
Ant-Man stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Judy Greer, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Pena, Martin Donovan, Wood Harris, John Slattery, Evangeline Lilly and Corey Stoll. Peyton Reed directs.
