Full Trailer for Marvel's ANT-MAN

With Avengers: Age of Ultron just over the horizon and the hype building to a fever pitch with the marketing campaign in overdrive it is easy to forget that Marvel has another movie coming out this summer. Maybe this was done on purpose given the road to completion was a rocky one for Ant-Man, but if the new trailer is any indication the worlds smallest hero is ready to put up a fight for his space in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In a strange bit of news that came out over the weekend with Avengers having it's main junket that included interviews with Marvel mastermind Kevin Feige; Ant-Man will not be the first film in Phase Three as suspected, but will apparently serve more as a culmination to Phase Two than Ultron. This is rather interesting given, up to this point, Ant-Man has felt like little more than an after-thought with questions surrounding if it will even be significant to the larger going-ons of the MCU, but Feige has confirmed that it very much does. While these connections were never going to determine the actual quality of the final product they would certainly assist in separating it from being significant or "just another comic book movie" in a summer saturated with these types of films. On the plus side, I look forward to seeing Paul Rudd in a leading action role and the balance of humor, action and most importantly: relevance seem to be in check in this second, full-length trailer making me, for the first time, pretty excited to see what's in store for us. Ant-Man stars Rudd in the titular role along with Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Judy Greer, Tip “TI” Harris, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris, Martin Donovan, Jordi Mollà, Michael Douglas and opens on July 17, 2015.
