Get a first look at Paul Rudd in the new ‘Ant-Man’ trailer

Marvel fans, here’s your first substantive look at Paul Rudd doing work as Ant-Man in July’s aptly titled Ant-Man. Spoiler: The trailer plays with the crippling cliches of superhero origin story movie transcriptions everywhere and it’s an eye roll. The twist at the end of the trailer is… Rudd’s jovial charm pausing for laughter.

The film is helmed by Peyton Reed, the journeyman director that brought us VHS classic Bring It On and Jim Carrey‘s Yes Man—a comedy that came stuffed with all the cinematic nutrition of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. Ant-Man opens nationwide July 17.
