Marvel’s Phase Two films will come to a close with the upcoming film Ant-Man. While its been a certainly been a bumpy road for the Ant-Man, with Director Edgar Wright dropping out (Peyton Reed taking over) and constant re-writes to the script, we finally have our first official teaser. In the teaser, Hank Pym (played by Michael Douglas) is heard motivating Scott Lang (played by Paul Rudd) to take a second chance when life offers one. We get the sense that Scott Lang, who is a thief, commits crimes for good reasons, with the montage of his family and in particularly his young daughter.
What this trailer tries to do is introduce audiences to this Ant-Man character (much like how they did Guardians of the Galaxy), and more importantly to the person in the suit. Seeing Ant-Man in action looked pretty sweet, though its just a sample of what’s to come later on, given the potential for sweet action sequences with Ant-Man’s powers. The trailer was also self aware with Scott Lang asking Pym “Is too late to change the name“, as I’m sure audiences will think the hero’s name sounds funny. Check out the trailer and let us know what you think.
Armed with a super-suit 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, plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
Ant-Man releases in theaters on July 17, 2015
