Get ready Marvel fans, there’s a new ANT-MAN poster to help get you pumped to see the final film for Phase 2 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This trailer highlights the main cast, including Paul Rudd in costume at the front and center.
However, if I’m being honest, this new poster looks like something a fan made in Photoshop rather than something done professionally. It has a very generic feel about it, as if it could be any given action movie. It doesn’t do much to show off the scale of how big and small Ant-Man can really be. It would be different if it showed several members of the cast in the middle of the heist, a small or large Ant-Man in the middle of a fight, or even our heroes trying to evade the villains. Instead what we have are the cast members looking off in different directions with vague expressions as everyone besides Ant-Man himself is muted into the blue-grey background. There also isn’t anything in the poster to convey the epic storytelling that the Marvel Cinematic Universe is known for, nor is there anything to convey the film’s alleged comedic tone. I’m still excited to see the movie, but this poster doesn’t really do anything to get me hyped to see it on the big screen.
What do you think of the new poster? Do you think it makes the movie look larger than life, or has it shrunk down your expectations? Be sure to let us know @TheMovieChickk!
