There’s no doubt that 2015, in a Marvel sense, is all about the return of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and their fight against Ultron. And I’m not saying that you shouldn’t be excited for Age of Ultron, because you sure as hell should be! But my advice, nobody should sleep on Marvel’s other movie of 2015, Ant-Man – the first of the new wave of characters coming to the MCU. Check out this awesome new promo art for Marvel’s Ant-Man.
The first time we saw anything on Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man, it was back in July during San Diego Comic Con. Since then we’ve gotten close to nothing – a few official images, but absolutely no footage (which is good).
Although SDCC is where Marvel revealed the Ant-Man suit that Paul Rudd will be wearing (via concept art), the suit for Corey Stoll’s villain role of Darren Cross/Yellowjacket has been kept under wraps pretty well – until now that is. The promo art from below not only gives us a second and better detailed look at the Ant-Man suit, but our first look at villain Yellowjacket. The version from the promo below is identical to the character design image that leaked a few months back, which you can see here.
As for the trailer, we won’t know anything for sure until something more official is released, but since the news that the Ant-Man trailer has been classified (reported 1:48 running time) and considering how Marvel planned to released the Age of Ultron trailer during an episode of Agents of S.H.I.L.E.D., it doesn’t seem to crazy to think that its first trailer will be attached to an episode of Marvel’s new TV series, Agent Carter. That argument is helped when reports have hinted that Peggy Carter (played by Haley Atwell) will appear in Ant-Man in some kind of flashback that includes herself, Hank Pym (Michael Douglass), Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper), and even Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford) – so it’s safe to say that it makes sense.
Since very few images have been released, the debut of the first trailer will definitely give the general movie going audience a better idea of what they will get and what to expect for Marvel’s Ant-Man. Until that happens, the new art above along with the other images should be able to hold fans over. But there’s no doubt that you and those you talk to should stay close because more on Ant-Man is coming.
Ant-Man will hit theaters July 17th, 2015. Directed by Peyton Reed starring Paul Rudd, Michael Douglass, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Michael Peña, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris, T.I., and John Slattery.
