New Ant-Man TV spot arrives

Marvel has unveiled a new TV spot for Ant-Man, following hot on the heels of the news that the studio will screen six minutes of footage ahead of IMAX 3D screenings of Jurassic World.

"It's time to become the Ant-Man," intones Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) soberly in this new spot, as Paul Rudd's reluctant hero begins to get to grips with his new powers. Give or take a sudden plunge down a plughole…

Take a look at the new spot, below…

The new spot does a good job of playing up the film's humour, with Rudd's natural comic timing offsetting the story's more ludicrous elements nicely. And while we've seen that Evangeline Lilly punch before, the new payoff is a real winner! Directed by Peyton Reed and co-starring Michael Pena, Corey Stoll and Bobby Cannavale, Ant-Man will open in the UK and US on 17 July 2015.
