After an ant-size marketing campaign that included a teaser trailer and poster, Marvel has released the first official ANT-MAN trailer! Put away the magnifying glass because there's no need to zoom in on this great footage. Paul Rudd’s superhero movie debut is here! The teaser trailer is more somber than I imagined, especially considering Paul Rudd is involved. It also has the obligatory abs shot of the superhero, in case you were wondering if he was fit enough for the job. While it's not as light as a lot of us expected, it still worked well enough to get me interested.

Here’s the official synopsis:

Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), 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.

While ANT-MAN won't be the biggest Marvel movie this year, that distinction will go to AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, I think it could certainly hold its own thanks to its fun style and humor. I personally don’t know a whole lot about the character, in fact all I needed to know was that Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas were involved and ticket bought. I will stay optimistic while waiting to see the finished result that experienced a rocky start to production; Peyton Reed’s biggest effort yet could be a great addition to the MCU.

I, for one, welcome our new insect overlord but what did you think of the first trailer?

ANT-MAN arrives on July 17, 2015 and also stars Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, and Michael Pena.
