“Scott, I’ve been watching you for a while now…”
Marvel have been teasing it all week, but during Agent Carter’s premiere in the US last night, the first trailer for Ant-Man landed. This 2 min preview is the first to show some actual footage of the titular character in action. It’s a mix of dark, serious, and moody, with some comedy sprinkled over the end, but looks cool.
The film stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang / Ant-Man, Michael Douglas as Hank Pym (old Ant-Man) and was eventually directed by Payton Reed (Yes Man, Bring It On).
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, Doctor 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.
