Marvel finally delivered the first Ant-Man trailer during Marvel’s Agent Carter television show on Tuesday night. The trailer basically showed Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) offering Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) a chance to become Ant-Man, making it look like they are ditching the Lang stealing the costume to save his daughter storyline.
There were shots of Lang getting arrested and going to prison, but much of the trailer felt like a redemption story with Pym offering Lang a chance to redeem himself and become the hero that his daughter always believed that he was.
There was also some shots of the shrinking and some fight scenes. The best thing about the trailer is that it showed just enough but didn’t give away anything. We don’t know why Pym wants Lang to become Ant-Man, we don’t know whether or not Pym used to be Ant-Man and we don’t know who the bad guys are. That is a great way to deal with the Ant-Man trailer, giving a taste without giving anything away.
Ant-Man hits theaters on July 17, 2015 and stars Michael Douglas, Paul Rudd, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer and Michael Pena. Check out the Ant-Man trailer below and let us know what you think of it in the comments below.
