New Ant-Man Trailer Features Way More Action and Marvel-Style Humor
The second trailer for Ant-Man is here, and it looks better than the underwhelming, needlessly serious first trailer, but we're not counting our chickens quite yet. 



There's both more action and more humor in this trailer, with lots of Ant-Man versus Yellowjacket footage and a few jokes peppered throughout. The Thomas the Tank Engine sequence was the only joke that really landed for me, though, so I'm still not overly optimistic. The premise of an ant-sized superhero is somewhat ridiculous, sort of like a sentient tree and talking raccoon, so they should try to make this more reminiscent of Guardians of the Galaxy than Captain America: Winter Soldier. Ant-Man could still surprise everyone, much like Guardians did, but I feel like I remember funnier, cleverer jokes in the Guardians trailers than anything we've seen from Ant-Man. We'll just have to see.

Ant-Man stars Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Judy Greer, and Michael Douglas. It comes out on July 17, 2015.
