Paul Rudd stars in the titular role in forthcoming superhero flick Ant-Man, which just released its first trailer.

‘Ant-Man’ Trailer

In the Ant-Man trailer, it’s the voice of Michael Douglas – who plays Hank Pym – that introduces Scott Lang as he gives him the chance to become  the Ant-Man.

“Scott, I’ve been watching you for awhile now. You’re different. Now, don’t let anyone tell you that you have nothing to offer,” he tells his protégé. “Second chances don’t come around all that often. I suggest you take a really close look at it. This is your chance to earn that look in your daughter’s eyes, to become the hero that she already thinks you are. It’s not about saving our world; it’s about saving theirs. Scott, I need you to be the Ant-Man.”

Scott’s response? A bemused, “Huh…”

The trailer then flashes clips of high-speed police chases, a barrage of gunfire, Rudd’s impressively toned abs – and a flying Ant Mobile.

At the end of Hank Pym’s Ant-Man proposal there’s just one question Scott has: “Is it too late to change the name?”

Ant-Man will follow Scott as he transforms from a petty criminal and into the unlikely Ant-Man superhero who shrinks in size but increases in strength. The film also stars Evangeline Lilly, Hayley Atwell, Judy Greer, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña and John Slattery.

Ant-Man hits theaters July 17, 2015.
