An army of Ant-Men in new extended TV Spot?

This title may be a bit of click bait I’ll admit, it’s hard to say definitively. But there’s definitely a collective group of flying ant’s following Ant-Man out of a cargo plane, by the looks of things?

Regardless, there seems to be something on the back of each of those fly ants. If it turns out that they are indeed people, it begs the question; what makes Ant-Man so special? If literally anyone can dawn a suit and shrink down, why should we be rooting for Scott Lang? I bet it’s because of his great comedic wit.

I like the simple dismiss of the possibility of asking the Avengers for help in this spot. I feel like the message there was;

“Shut up about it!”

Which is really the best and only explanation we need.

But what’s up with the pause in music when Ant-Man clings onto the gun? I get that they were trying to make the gun shot more impactful, but it just ended up being a little jarring overall for the spot.

Anyway, pretty good spot overall and it’s doing its job which is getting me psyched to see the movie.

One minute Ant-Man TV Spot

I don’t know about you, but whenever I see these kind of articles for Ant-Man I steer clear of them, because they always say that the spot contains new footage and it’s almost never true. It’s true this time! Unless you’re reading this a few months after it’s been posted or after you’ve seen Ant-Man. In which case…why?

Honestly, this is the first promotional material that’s actually getting me excited to see the movie. The music probably has a big part to play there. Speaking of…interesting choice of music here. 2020 by Suuns, pretty good. There’s a couple of moments in the spot where it is a little more dominate than I’d necessarily like, but for the most part it works really well.

There’s one scene teased in this spot that I want to see more than the rest. That being the shot of Ant-Man diving over the hood of a car, classic action movie trope. The difference here being that it actually a model replicate of a car. As if they set up a model representation of the scene and went;

“You know what, let’s just film it like this.”

Seems a little fourth-wall breaking, but I love that. I want to know the context of that already.

I really like Michael Pena and I think he’s going to be fantastic in this. However, I’m curious as to how much of a role he’s going to have in this movie. In the first trailer we saw a shot of him in a suit with a machine gun and in other short clips we’ve seen him helping out Paul Rudd’s, Scott Lang in a heist scene.

Clearly he’s a close friend of Scott’s. Hopefully the movie doesn’t focus on their friendship at the beginning and then just kind of forget about Pena towards the end. The shot in which he’s rocking the suit and gun suggests that that won’t be the case, I just have a bit of a feeling about this. Let’s hope I’m wrong.
