The wait is over and we finally have our first look at the Ant-Man teaser trailer. It premiered during the first episode of the famed comic book studio's new show, Marvel’s Agent Carter.
Our first impression is that it appears that the studio with the Midas touch isn’t losing it any time soon. The second thing that popped into our head, and maybe it’s something that doesn’t get said enough, these guys know how to cast.
Who would have thought that Chris Pratt would be a great Marvel superhero? He was in Guardians of the Galaxy. And clearly from this two-minute Ant-Man teaser, Paul Rudd is also impeccable and believable as a Marvel superhero.
We truly get the impression from the teaser that the word that Ant-Man is also Marvel’s first true heist movie is also the case.
It is an introductory teaser, sure, but Rudd’s Scott Lang is a master thief and he’s given a second chance by Dr. Hank Pym (again, brilliant casting with Michael Douglas in his first superhero movie) to have Lang become the hero his daughter already thinks he is.
And then there’s that Marvel sense of humor that has permeated most of their films. It arrives with Rudd’s last line.
Did we mention how much we enjoyed this Ant-Man teaser trailer? Time to go watch it again, and again.
