Ant-Man poster header

The first trailer for Peyton Reed‘s Ant-Man is out Tuesday evening. Just as a reminder, Marvel has released the first poster. The Ant-Man poster goes with the “ant” angle: it’s an empty white field, with a teeny-tiny image of the character at the center. While the poster doesn’t exactly work online, I can’t imagine seeing this poster in a movie theater and not stopping to take notice. It’s a smart piece of marketing. See the first Ant-Man poster below.

Thanks to Marvel for the Ant-Man poster.

Come on. That’s kind of ballsy, right? I think it’s very eye-catching and funny. If we get a high-res version, where you can blow it up, we’ll update this post.

If you missed the full size trailer tease, here’s that too. We’ll post the Ant-Man trailer tonight.

The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man.” Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
