The Ant-Man Film will finally be released in theatres in July of this year. The film has been in the planning stages since before the first Iron-Man was released. Back in those early days, the film was to be written and directed by Edgar Wright. However, a creative vision clash between Marvel and the director caused the two parties to go their separate ways. Payton Reed stepped in, and with a cast including Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, and Evangeline Lilly, the film was finally made. Now we have the first footage from the film, via the first teaser trailer.
While this teaser certainly won’t set the internet on fire, nor can it be described as the best trailer I’ve ever seen, it does give us a tiny inkling of what to expect. Here we have a hint at the general story, and get a little bit of an idea of the character and motivations of the films protagonist Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, played by Paul Rudd. We even get a brief look at some visual effects, I don’t know much about the character, nor was this film anywhere close to being on my “must watch” list of 2015. Having seen this trailer, I am intrigued, and willing to definitely give this film a chance to win me over. So for me, the teaser trailer did it’s job successfully. What do you think?
