This year's crop of epic comic book movies is headlined by one of the smallest among its ranks, Ant-Man. Just two days ago, we featured the movie's teaser of a teaser in this week's edition of Best Of The Weekend. Today, as that teaser promised, the full two-minute trailer has finally been unleashed via Marvel's Facebook and YouTube portals.
The trailer features the first few action scenes where we actually get to see thief Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and his Ant-Man suit developed by Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) in action. Pym partners with Lang to safeguard the Ant-Man technology, which shrinks the user but multiplies their strength, and save the earth from evil-doers.
"Heroes come in all sizes," Marvel says in a tweet promoting the flick; but Ant-Man just might be one of the biggest in 2015 with the microscopic new perspectives that the character is set to take.

Yes, that is the first poster for the movie as well, which lines up perfectly with the "ant-sized" trailers that Marvel has also released recently. Need a closer look at the first real photo we have of Paul Rudd in his Ant-Man digs?
Entertainment Weekly has the scoop on that, and their magnifying glass just might help:
