EW Debuts Paul Rudd in Full Ant-Man Costume


Scott Lang is ready for his close-up

Ahead of its big trailer debut on amusing first poster, [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/139278-Marvel-Releases-Ant-Sized-Ant-Man-Teaser] Marvel's Ant-Man has popped up as the cover boy for the latest Entertainment Weekly.

The cover shot, which appears to be a variation on the aforementioned minimalist teaser poster, deploys a magnifying glass to reveal a smirking Paul Rudd as Scott Lang. Of note, this constitutes fans' first real look at Lang in the full Ant-Man suit (though he's here depicted holding his helmet as opposed to wearing it.) In the comics, Ant-Man's suit allows him to change size while retaining full strength, while the helmet lets him communicate with ants.

In the film, Lang is a reformed thief who takes up the mantle of Ant-Man - a superhero of the 60s and 70s whose abilities include changing size while retaining full strength and communicating with ants - from its creator Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) to battle corporate-criminal Yellowjacket (Corey Stoll). Peyton Reed directs, taking over for a departed [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/134763-Edgar-Wright-No-Longer-Directing-Marvels-Ant-Man] Edgar Wright. Marvel is billing the lighter, humor-focused actioner as a smaller-scale coda to its "Phase 2" run of features, rather than an official start to Phase 3.

Ant-Man will release on July 17.

Well nevermind then of my comment on the other thread on the ant size poster. I thought it was with him with the helmet on.

WHY ISNT IT SUMMER YET?!

*ahem* I really wish more movies were released in the winter period....in the summer there are better things to do than sit inside and watch movies (even though I do that all the time then too...).

Well, it's summer here, and I can assure you I want to do nothing but sit inside a nice air-conditioned room most days. Blazing heat is overrated.
