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?

They really took the easy way out with the poster on this one, not impressed... This is what I would have done, Marvel is better than this.

Just thinking the same way. Safe came to mind.

Yeah. Marvel playing it safe. Ant Man isn't as big as any of their previous titles (no pun intented), so it seems like they're introducing him in small increments (also no pun)

This will be a movie all Uncles like, but all Aunts will love. Pun intended and corny joke achieved .....Systems Powering Down... vrrrrooooom..... hisssssssss..... chickkkkaaaaaa .. boom

Just to be clear, Ant man will be replacing Thor and Captain America in the 4th Avengers. Since they are switch to a black Captain America and Female Thor... but thats like 6-7 years away... so get all upset... but this will be phase 4-5 of the marvel phase.Also rumors are true, Spiderman will be in the 3rd Avengers movie or a Avengers spin off - the New Avengers - which will be hard since Wolverine is there...hint hint -- hackman i mean Jackman has signed on for another 3-4 part film series and only 2 of them are actual Xmen spinoffs Wolverine 2 and Apocalypse... so what are the other 2 movies... theres no Official Xmen film - just spin offs for like next 5 years... So maybe Disney will tickle Foxes balls like they did Sony and get the only important Hero they have that Avengers need. They can Keep F4 and Deadpool -

I guess that's the joke.

This film is Marvel's first attempt in the comedic genre and I found the poster to be pretty clever. I laughed so I think it succeeded in what it was trying to do. Plus, imagine seeing this poster blown up on the wall at your theater, the first thing you'd do is get really close to the picture so you could see it better. It's brilliant marketing IMO.

MattPeloquin on Jan 6, 2015


You wouldn't consider GotG as in the comedic genre?

Steven on Jan 6, 2015


I definitely laughed in that film, but it was mostly due to the B-movie nature of it and the corny scenes where they would dance for no reason. Not to mention the guy playing Ronan was over acting quite a bit.

MattPeloquin on Jan 6, 2015


All Marvel villains have this Greek feel to them, Greek's invented the drama, he is very dramatic, hence Marvel Villains all maintain the over dramatic personalities, thats what makes the hero's one liners so good.

shane willett on Jan 6, 2015


nope, its like saying Fifth Element is a love drama. Its got elements of that, but its a balls-to-the-walls action scifi film, Guardians is no different.

shane willett on Jan 6, 2015


I don't think it is going to be any funnier than Guardians - maybe less funny.

shane willett on Jan 6, 2015


It's just a teaser poster...

steve on Jan 6, 2015


Teasers are there to make me excited are they not, because this is not doing it. Nothing against the movie, I like Paul Rudd, Corey Stoll and Evangeline Lilly. This is a Marvel movie and eventhough I don't like the director I have a feeling Marvel will "make" him make the movie that they want...

Enola on Jan 6, 2015


Teaser poster - not theatrical - pretty the theatrical will have the oil pain look Guardians did - there following the formula for that for this.. so we will see...

Who has that image about avoiding movies with their titles in large upper-case red font?

OfficialJab on Jan 6, 2015


Starlord didnt have a helmet, it was mask helmet wrap. God Offical Jab, get it right... but yes they do look similar. Its the red eye cups.. and all the chrome. But in the comics they have similarities in design. But a true definition of a helmet is worn to protect the head, where Starlords does this except protect the top part, so does this make this a helmet, no, its helmet mask hybrid= Mask Helmet. Where ant man helmet looks like it has a re-breather - which is used to talk to ants and control them.

shane willett on Jan 6, 2015


A helmask.

Brian Sleider on Jan 6, 2015


It does both - its a re-breather - but also how he communicates - i wasn't a huge fan of Antman - but growing up Thor and Antman were always in the 25 cent bargain bin, so i read a lot. Also he antennas on his helmet which are not there in the live action version... so he doesn't look like an Ant now, just Starlord 2

shane willett on Jan 6, 2015


Looks soft even with Photoshop.

ohyes on Jan 6, 2015


One day they will put a guy in costume and take a pic, and thats it. It will look real, instead of shopped to all hell.

Brian Sleider on Jan 6, 2015


No they won't

The Walking Cuban on Jan 6, 2015


A guy can hope cant he?

Brian Sleider on Jan 6, 2015


Yes. Yes he can.

The Walking Cuban on Jan 6, 2015


lol at Entertainment Weekly calling it "Marvel's risky new movie." Considering Wright was dropped for being too unique and how safely played these posters are, "risky" is the last word that comes to mind in connection to this movie.

Terry Craig on Jan 6, 2015


Awww look at its tenny tinny lil pecker

redskulllives on Jan 6, 2015
