Marvel has released a new trailer for upcoming summer blockbuster Ant-Man, starring Paul Rudd as the famous miniature superhero.

Rudd plays master thief Scott Lang, who must help protect the Ant-Man technology that enables him to shrink in size while increasing in strength, created by his mentor Dr. Hank Pym. Faced with huge obstacles, the pair must pull off an ambitious heist and save the world from disaster.

“Imagine a soldier the size of an insect, the ultimate secret weapon,” the voiceover begins, before Pym is seen persuading Lang to take a “shot at redemption” and join him on his mission.

Fans get to see plenty more of the awesome red and black Ant-Man suit, including the flashy buttons that control his powers. Then there’s the “kind of cute” real ants, too, who become Lang’s “greatest allies”.

Another highlight comes when Hope Van Dyne, played by Evangeline Lilly, “shows Lang how to punch” in her own ‘unique’ way, before chaos erupts and it’s all explosions and dramatic music.

Rudd and Lilly are joined in the cast by Michael Douglas as Pym, Corey Stoll as Darren ‘Yellowjacket’ Cross, Bobby Cannavale as Paxton, Michael Pena as Luis, Judy Greer as Maggie, Tip ‘Ti’ Harris as Dave, David Dastmalchian as Kurt, Wood Harris as Gale and Jordi Molla as Castillo.

Directed by Peyton Reed and produced by Kevin Feige, Ant-Man reaches UK cinemas on 17 July 2015.
