Marvel Releases Fresh Batch Of Ant-Man Stills That Place Paul Rudd Under The Microscope



Arriving hot on the small, microscopic heels of yesterday’s array of images is a fresh batch of stills for Marvel’s upcoming superhero flick, Ant-Man.

While those screenshots placed an emphasis on Corey Stoll’s supervillain Yellowjacket, this latest collection swings the moral pendulum back towards Paul Rudd’s not-so-moral protagonist. As fans of the comic are already well aware, this dynamic will act as the crux of Ant-Man‘s storyline, with Stoll’s Darren Cross becoming drunk with power over a technology that boasts similar physics-defying abilities.

As Cross grows ever stronger and veers more towards that Yellowjacket alter-ego, Rudd’s Scott Lang must channel his inner hero in order to protect the suit and his own mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (played here by Michael Douglas). Much like the artwork from yesterday, the images, which can be glimpsed in the gallery below, offer up a new look at Rudd’s unlikeliest of heroes — including a rather brilliant shot of him donning the titular guise whilst standing in a shower.

Rudd, Stoll and Douglas will be joined by Evangeline Lilly, Judy Greer, Bobby Cannavale and Michael Pena. Ant-Man is set to scurry into theaters on July 17, 2015.

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.
