Marvel won’t be making any big marketing push for Ant-Man at Comic-Con this year, the film has already been getting some surprisingly great reviews. But the studio is bringing us one final trailer before the film’s release. As always, there is new footage to look at, as well as some familiar ones. But the trailer makes a point of acknowledging its existence within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, by asking those nagging questions about why aren’t some of the more qualified heroes there to help Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), and insulting those same heroes as well.
Check out the new trailer below.
The fact that Scott suggests that they should be calling the Avengers to stop Darren Cross aka Yellowjacket (Corey Stoll) from succeeding with his plan to revolutionize Pym’s technology is so hilarious, and also tells us that the characters know that there are other heroes better suited for this mission. But the fact that Hank called the Iron Man suit “cute technology” had me laughing.
Ant-Man also stars Evangeline Lilly, Michael Pena, Judy Greer, Hayley Atwell, John Slattery, Anthony Mackie, Tip “T.I.” Harris, and Bobby Cannavale.
Ant-Man hits a theater near you on July 17th.
Here is the official synopsis:
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.
