From the world of Marvel comes one of its smallest heroes, Ant-Man. The first trailer for the movie has just been released and it’s jam packed with ant-sized goodness. Okay, it’s actually human-sized this time. That joke only works once, or twice if you like the official poster.
We get a look at Dr. Hank Pym and his secret lab, master thief Scott Lang who will assume the role of Ant-Man, we even get a look at the incredible shrinking process where as an ant-sized hero he does things like ride wasps and defeat evil.
