We’ve got just a little over a month until the release of Ant-Man, which means that Marvel are going full steam ahead now with the movie’s marketing campaign. Just a week since we saw new TV spot for the formic superhero flick, another has been released giving us even more looks at some of the movie’s size-changing action beats, as well as our first proper glimpse as to how the world looks to star Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man when he goes microscopic (Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, anyone).
Even more than though, Marvel are pulling out their big guns to cement this character in their movie world, by not just name-dropping the Avengers in the trailer to comedic effect, but also unveiling a trio of new posters that in one case literally has the microscopic hero standing on the shoulders of these comic book movie giants.
A founding member of Marve’s The Avengers is brought to the screen for the first time in “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.
Ant-Man also stars Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, Corey Stoll as Darren Cross aka Yellowjacket, and Michael Douglas as Hank Pym. It is directed by Peyton Reed, who co-wrote the script with Rudd and Adam McKay, based off Edgar Wright’s initial draft. Ant-Man is scheduled for release on July 17, 2015.
