The visuals are cool, and I like Rudd's lines, but everything Douglas said was hack and hollow to me.  It's also way more serious than I was expecting.

That was about the most generic dull trailer I have seen.  None of the stars appeared excited, none of the action looked breath taking, and the story looked boring (no huge villain, no huge stakes, no huge set pieces)  I hope the full movie is better but so far I couldn't care less about the movie.

It's six months until release.  I'm sure we'll be getting more whiz-bang when the release date gets closer.

Maybe.  I really hope so because I like comic book movies but usually the teaser is supposed to have a very short but clever/interesting hook rather than bore people.

Ditto - especially with the choice of Paul Rudd.  On the bright side, looks like he's toned/buffed up - yum!

In general this one's really got me scratching my head.  Personally I always liked Ant Man, but I never thought he'd be worth his own full screen feature, and I never had the impression he had much of a fan base.  But... I also was pretty skeptical about Guardians and Agent Carter, and both of those were nice surprises, so maybe I should just trust Marvel  nod

I may have been skeptical about either Guardians or Agent Carter at one time, but that went away when I saw trailers.  

The poster taps into the sense of humor I was expecting, but this trailer has none of it.  Even the line about the name is given more weight than a toss off like that should have.  It's all somber.  And the more I hear Douglas' speech, the more I feel it could have been written by the geekiest kid sitting by himself in the lunchroom.  And having sometimes been that kid, I can verify it.

A nice discussion about the trailer and the history of Ant-man if you aren't up on the back story.

Ant-Man Trailer

They're calling this the "first trailer" either because that first one was technically a teaser or because they want us to forget it existed (which I'm more than happy to do).

This one is much, much better.  There's some comedy, good action, not as much rambling cliche generation from Douglas.  All good, really, though I still wish it was a little lighter.

They've started putting billboards up in Australia.



This is exactly the kind of humor that should have been used all along.

Saw the very latest trailer before Avengers: Age of Ultron yesterday, and it probably (for me anyway) does the best job so far of explaining the Ant-Man concept, with just enough humor in it.  icon_smile

I just hope the villain isn't too one-note moustache-twirling.

And that the movie doesn't end with a mego maniac villain in an armored suit, and/or something big and floaty. Oh, who am I kidding? This is Marvel. Take it or leave it, right?  icon_smile Might as well ask Transformers films not to end with giant robots beating the crap out of each other. smirk

You got me. Maybe we'll get bees in the sequel...  Bring your own!

But my bad joke doesn't work so I'll remove it.

I know Pym was going by Yellowjacket in the comics so now I need to go research when Yellowjacket was a bad guy.

Come on slackers, I know some of you had to have seen this!!

A lot of fun, not the same sort of epic fun as Guardians of course, much more grounded.  I'd say it definitely was a strong showing for such a relatively obscure hero, and that's due to a good script and solid performances all around.  I was hoping for a little more from Evangeline Lilly, but all in all I felt she had a decent role (at least on par with Pepper Potts in Iron Man), and you do get decent payoff for her storyline.  Paul Rudd was great, maybe just a little too laid back, but definitely a good choice.  The scene with him and Falcon was fantastic!  Very happy for him as I've been a big fan ever since Clueless.  Even Michael Douglas was decent (but hopefully you didn't watch him as Liberace and keep remembering the way he whines "Scott" in that movie lol.)

Can't wait to see more of Ant Man in Cap 3 and hopefully Avengers.  I don't know if we really need a second stand-alone movie, but I certainly wouldn't mind.

I begrudgingly saw Ant-Man Saturday at a smaller 3-D Regal showing, and enjoyed it more than I thought I would. While I wouldn't say it's as fun/funny as Guardians of the Galaxy, it does feel closer in general vibe to that than the other Marvel movies. I don't think it's on my list of stuff to see a crazy numbers, but I might try to catch it a 2nd time on IMAX.  Bring your own!

While critics are pointing to the "underwhelming" $58M opening weekend as proof Marvel's running out of Steam, that's not far off from the openings for the first Captain America and Thor movies ($65M in each). While I hesitate to call a $130M movie budget modest, Ant-Man's was chicken feed compared to Avengers: Age of Ultron ($250M budget), so I suspect Marvel's expectations for Ant-Man were more modest.

Ant-Man just isn't a comic property with a lot of awareness among non comic book aficionados. I suspect if they do a 2nd film like in 2019-2020 the character will have a lot more awareness -- esp. if he has a key role in the last couple Avengers films -- and probably do better box office, like the Cap and Thor 2nd films did.

I saw it tonight and agreed with the reviews that it takes some time to get going but finishes strong. I thought it was interesting that
Spoiler for Hiden:
they showed Janet a few times but never revealed her face.
I wonder if they have something planned for that character.

I thought it was odd that they aged
Spoiler for Hiden:
Haley Atwell to appear in the beginning of the movie but used a different actor for Howard Stark. And it is so weird seeing Martin Donovan so old, but I'm glad he is getting such broad exposure because I've been following him since his early days with Hal Hartley.

I was also glad to see
Spoiler for Hiden:
Cassie in the movie. I doubt ther will ever be a Young Avengers movie (although I would kill to see Kate Bishop in the MCU), but it was neat to have her included.

I wonder where they will take the Ant-Man character - will he get to be Goliath at some point?

For your second spoiler:

Spoiler for Hiden:
John Slattery played older Howard Stark before we had a younger Howard Stark.  So I imagine he's there for consistency.  He's a great actor, so I was actually excited to see him back.
