With Avengers: Age of Ultron just starting to screen for the press, Marvel is getting ready to shift its promotional machine to get ready to hype up Ant-Man. Yesterday, EW was given the first look at Yellowjacket, which will be played by Corey Stoll, fighting our miniature titular hero. Questions still linger in the air as to whether or not Ant-Man can overcome its production troubles and avoid being the first fiasco for Marvel Studios. Answers will be issued on July 17th, 2015 when Ant-Man hits theaters.
The official synopsis:
The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man.” Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats.
