As the PR for Ant-Man reaches fever pitch with this weeks release of both a promotional poster and teaser trailer, Disney and Marvel has now released additional images giving us a closer look at the films prominent characters including the modern Ant-Man, Scott Lang played by Paul Rudd.
The images released also include behind the scenes candid shots as well as concept art showing the superhero reduced in size.
In addition, we have also had a few plot details confirmed which were speculated following the release of the trailer. A report published by Entertainment Weekly reveals that the film will begin with Paul Rudd’s character in prison for robbing a crooked CEO of a major company.
Upon leaving prison, he runs across Michael Douglas’s Hank Pym and steals his Ant-Man suit.
What we can gather from the trailer is that this then leads to Pym actually attempting to recruit Lang in order for him to become a modern incarnation of the superhero.
Directed by Peyton Reed and co-starring Corey Stoll, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Peña, Ant-Man will open in the UK and US on 17 July 2015.
