WATCH First “Ant-Man” Trailer Lands

How did Paul Rudd handle his first turn as a Marvel Comics superhero?

As far as we can tell from the brand-new "Ant-Man" trailer, which debuted Monday during the premiere of ABC's "Agent Carter," the comedy actor slipped seamlessly into the role of the size-shifting, super-strong crime fighter.

Rudd plays Scott Lang, a petty thief who gets his hands on Dr. Hank Pym's Ant-Man technology. Michael Douglas plays Pym, who adopts Lang as a protege so that the wayward younger man can assume the important role of insect-hybrid.

"Yes Man" director Peyton Reed took over for Edgar Wright, who was attached to the project for years, just as production was getting underway last summer.

"Ant-Man" hits theaters July 17--you bring the popcorn, we'll bring the Calamine lotion.
