Once the lights go up on The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Phase Two of Marvel’s Avengers Initiative will close and Phase Three will begin. Although, Marvel Studios says that Ant-Man may be too small of a film to initiate Phase Three, I say otherwise because of Ant-Man’s importance to the Avengers Universe. Just because he’s small doesn’t mean he’s insignificant. Besides Phase Two began with the letdown that was Iron Man 3, so maybe the final phase can begin with a boop instead of a boom! Anyway, the new trailer for the new installment arrived last night, courtesy of ABC’s new program Agent Carter. It teases the hero, Scott Lang under the tutelage of Dr. Henry Lang, embarking on a redemptive path to pull off a heist with global-beneficial proportions, with a little levity thrown in. Check it out.
Directed by Peyton Reed and co-written by Adam McKay and star Paul Rudd, based on the story by former director Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish, Rudd leads the cast with Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lily, Judy Greer, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña and Corey Stoll as the film’s villain Yellowjacket. Ant-Man arrives in theaters by July 17, 2015.
