Ant-Man viral video links film to Marvel Cinematic Universe

A new viral video has appeared online for Ant-Man, taking the form of a news report that does a decent job of linking the new film to the rest of the MCU.

The new clip leads with a news story documenting the Avengers' antics in Sokovia, where a massive cleanup operation is underway after the mass devastation wrought at the end of Age Of Ultron. On top of that, there's also an indication of just what landed Scott Lang in prison, with Paul Rudd's character referred to as a "cyber-criminal".

Interestingly, the event is described as "the most recent Avengers conflict", with "the fallout" seemingly a topic for debate. Could this be the beginning of the mistrust towards the super-team that leads to the events of Civil War? We'll have to wait and see. In the meantime, Ant-Man will open in the UK and US on 17 July 2015.
