New 'Ant-Man' Poster Pits The Hero Against A Swarm Of Bullets

There's a new Ant-Man poster, and unlike the schlocky collage that made up the last one-sheet, this new image is more interesting. Ant-Man himself is the center of the shot, but it's the edges of the frame that get my attention. That's where we see a hail of bullets flying toward the little guy as he rides an ant, which seems like a pretty good promise of an action sequence in the final film. Check out the shot below.

Marvel tweeted the poster:

Here's a larger version. Now, as much as I like the shot there's some weird relative sizing there. That bullet under the word "brought," for instance. It looks like one of the closest ones to the character's head... and he's riding an ant... which means he's not even the size of a penny... so wouldn't that make that shot the tiniest bullet ever fired from any weapon? It's even smaller than a BB, or an individual bit of shot from a shotgun shell.

Whether that's something that will be explained in the film, or if there's just some artistic license being taken (which is fine, really) we'll have to wait to see in July.
