Edgar Wright may be out and Peyton Reed has come in to replace him, but it’s full steam ahead with Marvel’s Ant-Man. While it’s too early to show off footage at Comic Con, Marvel has taken the opportunity to release a rather cool concept art poster, which gives us our best look yet at the hero in his suit, along with Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas in the background.
The accompanying EW article lets us know, ‘That’s Paul Rudd taking on the central role of Scott Lang, a thief who, according to the comics, stole the technology behind the shrinking suit from the original Ant-Man, Hank Pym.
‘And there’s Michael Douglas, joining the Marvel universe as Pym, a scientist with Tony Stark-levels of ingenuity. He not only builds a miniaturizing mechanism, but also constructs a method of communicating with tiny creatures. (Better to have them on your side than trying to eat you.)
‘Although Lang only steals the suit to make it easier to lead a life of crime—it’s simple to sneak in and grab other things of value when you are microscopic—he inevitably follows a reluctant hero arc.’
The film is due out July 17th, 2015.
