With the marketing drive behind Avengers: Age of Ultron reaching its almighty crescendo, Marvel Studios has debuted a new full-length trailer for a founding member of the superhero squadron: Ant-Man.
Arriving not long after our first official look at Corey Stoll’s malevolent villain, this latest clip heavily features Yellowjacket, who will serve as the film’s overarching big – and indeed minute – bad. There’s also much more footage of the movie’s inventive fight sequences, too, with Paul Rudd’s titular hero changing size on the fly as he engages with his fellow inspects and pummels any goon standing in his way. And though much digital ink has been spilled about the flick’s supposed risky tenets, it’s these stylistic tendencies that will ultimately set Ant-Man apart from its contemporaries.
Joining Stoll and Rudd for the adventure are Michael Douglas as brilliant scientist Hank Pym, along with Evangeline Lilly, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Abby Ryder Fortson, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris and John Slattery, who will play Howard Stark via flashback sequences.
Directed by Peyton Reed, Ant-Man will scurry into theaters in time for July 17. For now, you can share your early impressions of Marvel’s latest big-screen “gamble” via the comments section below.
