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.

I also thought it seemed way more serious than I was expecting.

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.
