Scott Lang Is Flooded Out of a Bathtub in First Clip from Ant-Man
Scott Lang tries out his Ant-Man suit for the first time in the first full clip from Marvel's latest offering, only to be outmatched by a bathtub in a "Trial by Water":



In this clip, Ant-Man shrinks down for the very first time, with Hank Pym whispering in his ear, "The world sure looks a lot different from down here, doesn't it?" And it does in the most inconvenient of ways, as Scott makes the mistake of shrinking in a bathtub and encounters a tidal wave when the faucet is turned on. The clip is perfectly charming, and if most of the gags and set pieces are like this and that adorable toy train scene, then we'll be happy.

This makes us hopeful that the movie will be decent, especially after those overwhelmingly (and surprisingly) positive first reactions to the initial screening. For Marvel fans, the film is apparently worth seeing just for the post-credits scenes alone, but we're hoping it also lives up to the claims that it's the most "human" and character-driven Marvel film thus far. 

The official Ant-Man synopsis reads:

Opening quote
"Armed with a super-suit with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, plan and pull off a heist that will save the world."
