Another Boring Marvel Poster Debuts for 'Ant-Man' with Paul Rudd
You can do better than this, Marvel! The final official poster for Marvel Studio's Ant-Man has debuted on Marvel.com today, timed perfectly the week after Avengers: Age of Ultron opened theaters. So now they're continuing the Marvel hype train by reminding us that Ant-Man starring Paul Rudd & Michael Douglas is coming up later this summer. Unfortunately, it's another very boring poster from Marvel that Photoshops a bunch of actors into a really bland design. And yet they were doing so good! The first teaser poster was great, and those tiny billboards are brilliant, but why revert to such boring work for the final pay off poster?
Here's the latest promo art for Marvel's Ant-Man, revealed via Marvel.com + some funny tweets beneath:
Marvel makes the worst goddamn movie posters.

These Photoshopped posters for superhero movies kinda break my heart when Drew Struzan is RIGHT HERE.

So true about Struzan (and many other artists) but alas this is what we get. We'll always have the billboards.
Ant-Man is directed by Peyton Reed (Yes Man) with a script by Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish, rewritten by Adam McKay and Gabriel Ferrari & Andrew Barrer Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), 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/Disney releases Ant-Man starting July 17th this summer.
