Paul Rudd Stands off with Yellowjacket in New Ant-Man Trailer

Marvel and Disney’s relationship is an odd one that I’m pretty much on the fence about. But I’m appreciative of films like Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy so I was super excited when they announced Ant-Man would show up on the silver screen. And we now have a trailer to go with it.

After a teaser trailer during the MTV Movie Awards earlier this year, Disney released a full trailer this week with Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly and Corey Stoll playing Yellowjacket. Set to hit theatres this summer July 17th as a follow-up to Avengers: Age of Ultron, which will be released globally on May 1st, Ant-Man will even bring along new characters like Howard Stark, Tony Starks father.

According to our friends over at I Watch Stuff:

While Avengers: Age of Ultron has been building up a massive, world-scale battle, Marvel’s July follow-up now has the issue of quickly bringing things down to a model train H0 scale. This first full-length trailer for Ant-Man gets straight to that with some extremely small battles (including one on a train set), light-hearted self-awareness, and yes, ants. Also introduced: Corey Stoll’s Yellowjacket, the shrinking foe that carries on the Iron Man and Incredible Hulk tradition of the first villain being a very obvious analogue for our hero. Best not to complicate things where a tiny Paul Rudd communicating with bugs is concerned.


This is one of the five films I’m super excited for. There are rumors that either Avengers or Ant-man will host the trailer for the Batman Vs. Superman movie as well, so I know I’ll be in the theatre the night it comes out. Are you excited?
