After a small teaser – very small – Marvel has released the first full-length trailer for their next D-List superhero saga. Hey, it worked by Guardians of the Galaxy!
Peyton Reed directed the film, with Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Judy Greer, Tip “T.I” Harris, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris, Jordi Mollà, and Michael Douglas starring.
Fans are very familiar with the rollercoaster this film has taken getting to the big screen: Development of Ant-Man began in April 2006, with the hiring of Edgar Wright to direct and co-write with Joe Cornish. By April 2011, Wright and Cornish had completed three drafts of the script and Wright shot test footage for the film in July 2012. Pre-production began in October 2013 after being put on hold so that Wright could complete The World’s End.
Casting began in December 2013, with the acquisition of Rudd to play Lang. In May 2014, Wright left the project citing creative differences. The following month, Reed was brought in as Wright’s replacement and McKay was hired to contribute to the script. Principal photography took place between August and December 2014 in San Francisco, Pinewood Atlanta in Fayette County, Georgia and in Atlanta.
Ant-Man is scheduled to be released on July 17, 2015.
