Marvel has unveiled a brand new trailer for their upcoming Peyton Reed-directed film Ant-Man starring Paul Rudd in the titular role. Unlike the last teaser we saw, which was surprisingly very serious in tone, this new trailer delivers equal portions of action, humor, and drama. Scott Lang/Ant-Man’s superhuman and shrinking abilities are highlighted, as well as his reasons for his involvement with Michael Douglas’ Hank Pym. Additionally, we are given insight into what drives antagonist Darren Cross (Corey Stoll), a.k.a. Yellowjacket, and we get to see more of Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne. Check it out.

While Darren Cross’ motivations don’t seem the most original  feeling very similar to those of Obadiah’s Stone’s motivations in the first Iron Man film his official reveal of his Yellowjacket suit is very satisfying. The final shot of the trailer involving a Thomas the Tank Engine toy smashing into him is just hilarious and gives us a sense that Marvel is treating this property seriously, but not so serious that they can neglect inserting goofy moments like this.

Marvel’s Ant-Man releases in theaters July 17, 2015.
