Paul Rudd and the rest of the cast crowd the latest Ant-Man poster

05.06.2015

Phase 2 of Marvel's cinematic entries is coming to a close in 2 months' time, and while the rest of the films have been sequels of some sort, there have only been 2 movies this phase based solely around new characters. The first, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, was met with a resounding success. The second is a bit of a wait and see, although now we have a new poster with more characters than you can throw a Hulkbuster at!

The unfortunate shadow looming over this film will be the "What if?" regarding Edgar Wright's departure. It's easy to point a finger and say who could have done better when we'll never see thier end product. Much like the trailers, this poster doesn't do much to inspire me that Marvel has something different on their hands with ANT-MAN. Given the total chaos and carnage brought forth in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, I'm hoping that ANT-MAN goes down like a lite dessert; more comedy and less wham bam. Maybe that's just me, but hopefully Peyton Reed and Co. have a nice, little surprise for us come July. The film will actually premiere at the Fantasia Film Festival where our own Chris Bumbray will be in attendance, so we'll be sure to let ya know how the movie fares as soon as it screens!

ANT-MAN opens in theaters on July 17, 2015.

Not what I'd call a good poster.
Really very vanilla.
Just seems like there's no idea behind it.

love that trailer though...

"imagine a solider."

- ok.

"the size of an insect."

- uh... sure...

"the ultimate secret weapon."

- wait, what?

They should have a poster with art of them battling on the train set. That would be perfect.

Photoshop is probably the worst thing to ever happen to movie marketing.

It's not an eyesore, but really unoriginal. I still want this movie to succeed though, since I like what Marvel is doing with their interconnected universe and I like seeing Rudd as part of the MCU. That guy is so likable, he deserves it.

Wow, new low, hating a poster and taking it out on a movie you haven't seen yet.

Meh

It looks like Bobby Carnavale and Michael Pena just smelled a really nasty fart from Ant-Man given their placement.

What the hell is up with half of these facial expressions? Also, the San Franciscan in me is cringing at that off-placement of the TransAmerica building. We get it - it takes place in SF. No need to throw every landmark in there.

So Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish still receive a screenplay credit in addition to their story credit, which implies their original draft still makes enough of a contribution to retain their names. Also, I see that Edgar Wright was given an executive producer credit, which was probably just a formality given what he brought to the project prior to his departure. That is literally the only thing I got out of this subpar poster.

After reviewing all of the Marvel movie posters up til now, I realize that pretty much all of the Marvel posters have been lazy except for the first Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy.

This one just seems even lazier. "No! Throw in Random Guy With Sunglasses in there. PERFECT!"

I guess we couldn't have expected to see Paul Rudd bull riding an ant on the poster.

That poster isn't bad, just lazy. The movie looks interesting though. The trailer gag with the Thomas the Tank Engine derailing got big laughs in my theater.

I've only ever watched one movie in my life based solely on the poster. Peter Jackson's The Frighteners, the poster of just an evil face pushing out of blank white wall.

With the amount of artists Marvel employs, I'm constantly baffled by how underwhelming their posters are. Comic-Con variants aside, of course.

The more I think about it, the more I'm thinking I'll wait for Ant-Man to stream on Netflix. There has been nothing released so far that really grabs my attention as this being a really great Marvel addition to the MCU.

Don't get me wrong, it does look decent and I do want to see it. But I just don't think it warrants the $15.00 price tag to see it in theaters. Especially when I consider what other movies are being released this summer that I can see instead. Hate to say it, but Marvel

Only for Paul Rudd

THIS POSTER. The bottom right half looks like a bad NYC Subway poster for Life insurance, or some Health issue, or anything, wow, bad. Then the bottom left...a bad new FOX show?

I like it. I reminds me of the first Iron Man posters. I think these posters are going to be a thing to collect with future hipsters. They're going to look back and romanticize how simple and Marvel-esque they were back in the early years of the century and we'll remind them how shitty of a job the ad team did... on all of their films.

I guess it's a guilty pleasure. Simple and dumb, but effective.

It's your usual Superhero movie poster and I'm okay with that. But that "Heroes don't get any bigger" - that sounds familiar.

I'll admit that I was disappointed that Wright left the project and thought the film wouldn't be as good as the previous Marvel films. But after the trailers (especially the second one), I couldn't be more excited. I just like the fact it won't be Ant Man trying to save the entire world this time around and will be something more personal (sort of like Iron Man 1). And the fact that this will be another first film from a new character in the MCU should be refreshing as well. And Rudd is really
