Marvel unveils clever poster for ‘Ant-Man’ movie

Squint or you'll miss it...

Marvel has unveiled a clever “squint or you’ll miss it” poster for its forthcoming Ant-Man movie – check it out below.

The new poster accompanies the first full-length trailer for the film, which was also unveiled last night (January 6).

Marvel’s Ant-Man movie stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, a petty criminal who acquires the ability to shrink in size but increase in strength and become a superhero known as Ant-Man. Michael Douglas co-stars as Hank Pym, the scientist who originally invented the Ant-Man technology and mentors Lang to take over from him.

Marvel’s plot synopsis for the film teases: “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. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.”

Ant-Man is set for release on July 17. Rudd and Douglas lead an impressive ensemble cast that also includes Evangeline Lilly, Bobby Cannavale, rapper/actor TI, Corey Stoll and Judy Greer.

Filming finished last month (December) with Peyton Reed (The Break-Up) directing after Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead) dropped out in May citing creative differences with Marvel.
