Marvel's final Phase Two adventure Ant-Man was a hit among critics (80% "Fresh" on Rotten Tomatoes) and fans ($409.6 million worldwide) during its theatrical release this summer. For those who want to relive all the action at home, Marvel has debuted, via USA Today, a new trailer which reveals this superhero adventure will debut on Digitall HD November 17, before arriving on Blu-ray and DVD December 8. The trailer is actually a unique re-creation of a popular Ant-Man scene, featuring narration by scene-stealing star Michael Peña, who played Luis.
The trailer is put together in the same way as a popular scene where Luis has a very long-winded way of explaining how a certain series of events transpired. In this trailer, Michael Peña, in character as Luis, actually breaks down some of the Blu-ray special features, giving us our first look at the gag reel, deleted scenes and behind-the-scenes featurettes. The featurettes offer a look at the shrinking scenes and how director Peyton Reed put together Luis and the rest of his "super-fly, super-handsome crew of delightful gentlemen."
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 (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 supporting cast includes Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Abby Ryder Fortson, David Dastmalchian and T.I.Peyton Reed (Bring It On) directs from a screenplay by Adam McKay, Paul Rudd, Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish. Marvel recently announced the sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp, will hit theaters on July 6, 2018.
