It may feature a teeny hero, but the new Ant-Man trailer is big on thrills, laughs and cool-looking miniature scraps. While Marvel’s previous trailer for the film was low on content thanks to the beleaguered production schedule, this new trailer more than makes up for that.
“I want you to break into a place and steal something,” says Michael Douglas as he hires Paul Rudd’s ex-con to become a new superhero.
It’s all very tongue-in-cheek, hinting this will be one of the funniest films Marvel has released so far. But sandwiched between Avengers: Age Of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War, there’s a risk Ant-Man could feel like the forgotten Marvel film sneaking in at the end of Phase 2, which is why Hank Pym’s line “If you give godlike powers to everyone, it’s gonna be chaos” is so interesting. Could the events of Ant-Manfurther fuel the flames that lead to the Superhero Registration Act in Civil War? Regardless, sounds like Hank Pym would be on Tony Stark’s side.
