Check Out the Tiniest Superhero on a Teaser Poster for 'Ant-Man'
Tonight will bring the first teaser trailer for Marvel's second summer release this year, Ant-Man. The film stars Paul Rudd, entering new territory as a thief turned superhero who can shrink down to the size of an ant. And hot on the heels of an ant-sized teaser for the film (along with the human-sized one shortly thereafter), the superhero now gets a teaser poster that is actually pretty bold. It shows our title hero, but he's super tiny, amidst a pure white background along with just a title and a date. That's a great teaser poster, and I'm impressed they didn't even use the star power of Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas. Look!
Here's the teaser poster for Peyton Reed's Ant-Man from the film's Facebook page:
And here's Paul Rudd in the Ant-Man suit from the newest Entertainment Weekly cover:
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 Studios releases the film this summer on July 17th. Ready?
