Is anyone truly excited about Marvel’s Ant-Man – yes, no, maybe? Seems most are considerable unimpressed with Marvel’s latest entry into their Cinematic Universe. Maybe it’s because the lead characters super powers of shrinking down to the size of a popcorn kernel and talking to Ants isn’t all that interesting. Or, maybe, it’s something deeper. Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron was as nonstop kinetic force – it was as fun and exciting as a super hero movie can get. Any Marvel solo film following a blockbuster like would be akin to being the guy that has to go on and perform after The Beatles .
Obviously feeling that Ant-Man isn’t tracking as strong as they may like, Marvel has dished out some movie posters with some familiar faces. When in doubt, cross promote!
Based on the trailers and spots for Ant-Man, it appears to be its own movie having next to no ties with any of the Avengers or their respective films. So it’s interesting to see Marvel using the Avengers to help market Ant-Man.
Ant-Man hits cinemas July 17, 2015.
