Marvel’s big campaign for its tiny hero continues today with seven Ant-Man character posters. Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Michael Peña, T.I., and Bobby Cannavale take turns getting the Vaseline lens treatment, as Ant-Man remains the true star of the show. Check out the new Ant-Man character posters after the jump.
EW debuted the Ant-Man character posters and a brand-new TV spot. These poster come with a bit of new character info. Luis (Peña) is described as Scott’s “partner in crime,” and Dave (T.I.) is “another member of Scott’s crew.” Still not many details on Cannavale’s Paxton, though.
This is a cute idea, awkwardly executed. T.I. and Peña’s are reasonably convincing, even if Ant-Man is clearly Photoshopped in. But those are so clearly not Lilly or Stoll’s hands, and the effect is kind of unsettling.
Anyway, here are two more posters from Marvel’s international teams. The Japanese one has Cassie Lang considering her shrunken father, and the French one has a full-sized Scott Lang dealing with a miniature Yellowjacket.
Ant-Man crawls into theaters July 17.
