Ant-Man TV Spot Gets Weird with Paul Rudd & Michael Douglas

By B. Alan Orange — July 18th, 2015

What are we watching here? Marvel and Disney have debuted a very strange TV spot for their new superhero adventure Ant-Man. It features stars Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas scatting about ants. They slap their chests, beating out a tribal rhythm used to call forth the insects. What does it all mean? Why are they doing this? We really have no idea!

There has been some concern from fans that the latest spat of Ant-Man clips and TV spots have been too spoilerish. One such TV spot even goes as far as to reveal the movie's secret Avengers cameo. Well, it's not a secret anymore, as Anthony Mackie's Falcon, who became a bonafide Avenger in Avengers: Age of Ultron, meets Scott Lang for the first time. We've included it here, in case you haven't seen it yet, or need some extra incentive to get yourself in theaters this weekend.

Ant-Man brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time. Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), 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.

The Ant-Man cast is a stellar ensemble that includes Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Abby Ryder Fortson, Michael Peña, David Dastmalchian, T.I. and Neil Hamburger. If you need more than just the Falcon cameo to get you in theaters, other Avengers show up at the very end of the movie in two post credit scenes. These cool scenes help set up both Captain America: Civil War and the rest of Phase 3. Who will you see at the end of Ant-Man? You'll have to buy your ticket to find out, we're not saying anymore.
