Hank Pym Teaches Scott Lang How to Use the Suit in Newest Ant-Man Clip
After a lot of skepticism, Ant-Man is sounding better and better by the minute, and now this brief new clip, courtesy of IGN, has as much charm as they can stuff into only 30 seconds:



In the clip, Michael Douglas's Hank Pym explains to Paul Rudd's Scott Lang that "the relationship between the man and suit is symbiotic" in that "the suit has power, [while] the man harnesses it." Scott tries to use this "wax-on, wax-off"-esque encouragement to jump through a keyhole, and it goes about as well as you'd expect.

The best part, though, is Evangeline Lilly's Hope van Dyne, who kind of looks on cantankerously and then just says, "Useless." Lilly has stated in interviews that Hope resents her father giving the Ant-Man suit to a male ex-con rather than his own daughter, so hopefully this dynamic will make the film a little more feminist.

Marvel's official synopsis reads:

Opening quote
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.
