The Marvel hero Ant-Man may be small, but that doesn’t make him a lightweight. It’s actually quite the opposite, as normal-sized humans will find themselves at a disadvantage going up against the tiny titan. That’s the vibe being given from the first TV spot for the Peyton Reed-directed July blockbuster, which you can check out below!
Marvel has launched the new Ant-Man preview, which will begin broadcasting on air this evening. With less than two months until the film hits theaters, this TV spot wastes no time delving into the action. It starts off with Corey Stoll’s villainous Darren Cross promoting his stolen Ant-Man technology to a group of suits, and we catch a glimpse of his tiny Yellowjacket armor. Next, we see Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang showing off his skills as a thief, which then transitions to Michael Douglas’ Hank Pym recruiting Scott to become the Ant-Man. The thrilling parts, however, feature Scott testing out the suit’s features, including shrinking, the enhanced strength that comes with being small, and controlling ants. From there the footage shows off some of the film’s intense action sequences, including our hero running through a flurry of bullets and him riding an ant. We also hear Scott tell someone (presumably Cross) to "pick on someone your own size." (Deep down we knew they were going to use that line at some point.)

The trailer’s funniest moment comes when Scott demonstrates the suit’s shrinking ability in front of Michael Peña’s Luis, T.I.'s Dave and David Dastmalchian’s Kurt. Scott tells both of them there’s nothing to be scared of, but Luis, who is Scott’s former prison cellmate, assures him he’s not easily frightened. That statement is quickly disproved when Scott shrinks in front of them (resulting in shocked expressions from both men), and discreetly places himself on Luis’ shoulder - causing his friend to freak out when he sees him there. To be fair, I think we would all have that reaction if a tiny human ended up on us. At that size, you’d probably want to swat them away like any ant or creepy insect.

It’s too soon to tell how Ant-Man will fare with audiences, but from this trailer and the ones before it, there doesn’t seem to be any shortage of excitement. The preview also indicates that there will be some light-hearted and humorous moments interspersed, though it would be nice to see at least a few more jokes and one-liners inserted into the upcoming TV spots and trailers. Whatever happens with the film, fans can also look forward to Scott returning to the MCU next year in Captain America: Civil War.

You can catch Ant-Man in theaters on July 17.
