Marvel Studios dropped their stunning teaser trailer for Marvel's Avengers: Age of Ultron on the clamoring geeky masses less than two weeks ago and the video already has more than 55 million views on YouTube. That's a whole lot of fans looking to get a peak at what will surely be the pinnacle of Marvel's Phase 2 plans.
Luckily for us, the studio has also decided that we can use a little more superhero goodness sprinkled through our weekly TV watching as they've been peppering Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. with footage, teasers, and other nuggets of comic gold for the last couple weeks.
Last night, during ABC's airing of their new Marvel-centric special 75 Years: From Pulp to Pop!, comic book fans also got their very first behind-the-scenes look at another of the studio's most eagerly-awaited projects: Ant-Man.
Starring Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, and Evangeline Lilly, the film is slated to open in theaters July 17, 2015 (not longer after Age of Ultron hits theaters) under the watchful hand of director Peyton Reed, who was brought in after Edgar Wright (Shaun of the Dead, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World) left the project.
In the short sneak peak, viewers get to see a behind-the-scenes glimpse at Ant-Man himself, Paul Rudd, scoping out the suit that will shrink him down into a tiny crimefighting machine. We also get a good look at Rudd and Michael Douglas (who plays mentor Hank Pym) hanging out around the lab. It's short, but it's a great first look for fans that will go crazy for any little bit of Marvel news or footage. Check out the video below.
Here are a few GIFs of the Ant-Man-specific moments for your continued amusement:
