Now that Avengers: Age of Ultron is out and steamrolling its way through the box office, Marvel Studios is turning its mighty PR eye to this summer’s other superhero release, Ant-Man. Behold the newly released poster, which looks a lot like all the other Marvel posters for their superhero movies: hero in the center, supporting cast in various perspectives littering the sides. Still, the costume looks cool and Paul Rudd is always fun to watch so Ant-Man has a lot going for it.
It’s interesting to note that the studio chose the tagline “From The Studio That Brought You Guardians Of The Galaxy.” It’s like they are saying, “Remember how we made a super badass movie that starred a talking raccoon? Just trust us on Ant-Man, guys.” We’ll just have to wait until July 17th to find out.
In the meantime, here’s Marvel Studios’ synopsis of the flick:
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.
