Comic-book and Paul Rudd fans alike, rejoice!
The first official trailer for the upcoming big-screen adventure-fantasy Ant-Man premiered on ABC Tuesday night in the final moments of the Agents of SHIELD TV spin-off Agent Carter, in anticipation of the movie’s July 17 opening.
Besides a preview of Rudd as thief-turned-microscopic superhero Scott Lang, the teaser offered glimpses of Michael Douglas as Lang’s mentor Henry “Hank” Pym, the developer of the shrinking technology that gives Ant-Man his power, and Evangeline Lilly as Pym’s daughter, Hope.
“Scott,” Douglas’s Pym says to Rudd’s Lang in the teaser, “I need you to be the Ant-Man.”
“One question,” responds Lang. “Is it too late to change the name?”
Corey Stoll also costars as the film’s villain, Darren Cross, also known as Yellowjacket.

Summer can’t come soon enough.
