There comes a time in every Marvel film’s life when it needs a poster full of floating heads and bodies in an explosion of Photoshop-montage work, all while the characters look off into the middle-distance. It’s a bit daft but it works, and it has done for decades, not just for Marvel movies.
Now Ant-Man has its effort, with the costumed character himself taking centre stage, while surrounded by the likes of Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll and Michael Pena float about in the background – along with a reminder that inside the Ant-Man costume is Paul Rudd.
Take a look above.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man.” Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, 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.
‘Marvel’s “Ant-Man” stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, Corey Stoll as Darren Cross aka Yellowjacket, Bobby Cannavale as Paxton, Michael Peña as Luis, Judy Greer as Maggie, Tip “Ti” Harris as Dave, David Dastmalchian as Kurt, Wood Harris as Gale, Jordi Mollà as Castillo and Michael Douglas as Hank Pym. Directed by Peyton Reed and produced by Kevin Feige, Marvel’s “Ant-Man” delivers a high-stakes, tension-filled adventure on July 17, 2015.’
