The spotlight's not just on the Earth's Mightiest Heroes as Marvel have gone and debuted the first, full-length trailer for the second of their two 2015 releases - Ant-Man - and I am totally digging it.
Now, I didn't mind the teaser trailer too much but it didn't exactly push the boat out in terms of revealing much. However, I'm really loving this new trailer. It gives us a better idea as to the quirky tone and humour of the film but it also shows us that it can take itself seriously too. We also get a better look at Rudd in action, in the suit - running around with ants and just kicking butt. The reveal also gives us our first look at Corey Stoll's antagonist Yellowjacket in action too - the scene involving the toy train at the end is brilliant.
Sure, the marketing for this film hasn't entirely been great - we haven't exactly seen too much from this film - and I think that Marvel may be paying more attention to the first (and the bigger) of their 2015 releases - The Avengers: Age of Ultron - but this trailer makes up for it. Full of action and awesomeness, this is a packed 2 minutes and 27 seconds and I'm sure will have a lot more people on-board and excited for this Summer blockbuster.
Personally, I've always been excited for this. I know that, ever since Edgar Wright departed the project, doubts have spiraled and people have been very skeptical as to what this will be like but I think that Peyton Reed is a great director to take the helm. Also, considering that Guardians of the Galaxy - a concept that very few people had heard of - became one of last year's biggest hits, I know that Marvel can take risky moves and make them work. Besides, this a fun new trailer and certainly has me looking forward to seeing more in the buildup to Ant-Man's release.
Here's the film's 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.
