Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man kicked off production yesterday, and we got this shiny first promo pic to commemorate the occasion!
In case you forgot, this isn’t your dad’s Ant-Man, whatever that means. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe Hank Pym won’t so much be a founding member of the Avengers as he’ll be an aging scientist played by Michael Douglas who is helpless to protect the secrets of his shrink-ray technology (also known as Pym particles) from his nefarious colleague Darren Cross (a.k.a. Yellowjacket). So, he hires gritty ex-con Scott Lang to steal the technology back.
Look at Paul Rudd being an ex-con there. So tough. We bet he just got out of Alcatraz somehow. He’s seen stuff, you guys.
And…you know what? Sorry, we can’t go on like this. That picture is snoozeville. Show us the Ant-Man suit or nothing, guys. Come on.
Or this. We would also accept this.
Now Tayne we can get into!
Ant-Man comes to theaters July 17, 2015.
