Marvel has released the final trailer for Ant-Man following the reveal of the first in a planned series of viral videos connecting Scott Lang to the larger MCU. Hopefully when the next video hits next week, we’ll have a bit more to go on, but until then we have the final official trailer for Marvel’s latest superhero adventure — and it looks pretty fun.
By all superficial appearances, Ant-Man pretty much looks like a standalone Marvel film — but the newest hero of the MCU will be making an appearance in Captain America: Civil War, and it’s all but certain that Marvel has plans for Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang further down the line in Phase 3. A new viral video begins establishing those connections with the reappearance of a minor Marvel character.
We’ve got two new Ant-Man bits to share today. First is the above clip, which features Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang using his super-shrinking power for the first time — in a bathtub, of all places. The second piece of news pertains to the possibility of a sequel, which director Peyton Reed says he’s open to directing.
If you’ve been paying attention to Twitter, you’ve likely noticed that the first reactions to Ant-Man have started popping up as the film screened early for a handful of critics. It’s still a couple of weeks before we’ll get to see Marvel’s latest, but you can see a little more of Ant-Man right now with the new international trailer.
If you’d like to save a little surprise for yourself when you see Ant-Man next month, then consider this a fair warning — this post contains a spoiler for Marvel’s next superhero film. Although we’re not likely to see any MCU crossovers in Ant-Man, there is one more hero that will make an appearance in the film, albeit very briefly, and it’s someone fans have been wondering about since the film was announced.
It’s become a trend for studios to release new teasers and trailers skewed towards celebrating various holidays (last year’s Christmas “card” from The Babadook was particularly inspired). And while some of these promos aren’t so great, this new Ant-Man trailer from Marvel is a pretty nice Father’s Day gift.

Marvel needs all the help it can get in promoting Ant-Man, a superhero who’s not nearly as well known as Captain America, Thor and Iron Man. So, how do you give the film a boost? Well, you call in some help from Captain America, Thor and Iron Man.
Heroes don’t get any bigger — or any smaller — than Ant-Man. At least that’s what the various trailers and TV spots for Marvel’s latest superhero movie have been telling us for a few months now. The latest TV spot has arrived to get you amped for the release of Marvel’s second new film this year. Is it already almost July? Man, this summer is going by fast.
Ant-Man is not the coolest kid at the party that is the summer movie season. In fact, no one knows what to make of him. Sure, he’s related to Avengers: Age of Ultron, but he looks awfully weird and he supposedly has this dark and troubled past. So Ant-Man has to work a little harder to get noticed. He has to be seen by as many people as possible. He has to befriend one of the most popular kids in the room ... and you don’t get much more popular than Jurassic World.
