The new Ant-Man tv spot is brief, but the footage at the beginning reminds us that, while he's not an Avenger, Paul Rudd's upcoming character is definitely part of the MCU. Was there some chance we might forget?
I'm glad that they got a comedic actor like Rudd to play the character (because it means they know nobody is taking Ant-Man seriously). But I'm still underwhelmed. The most intense fight scene in the trailer takes place on a model train set. That's far cry from the Battle of New York. I'm just not convinced anyone actually wants to see a movie about a guy who can shrink. It feels like the only way to pull it off is to go the ridiculously campy route, and it doesn't look like Marvel made that call. It feels like a flop to me. Reminding us of previous successes in the franchise wont fix it.
