In case you missed the first full-length preview of Marvel’s Ant-Man at the end of the second hour of ABC’s Agent Carter Tuesday night, we’ve got it here.  Strangely we almost missed this one, since it was a billed as a teaser and Marvel Studios already released a teaser last week, shown here.  This is no teaser–it’s a hefty preview of the film.  Check it out below, after the break.

Some observations on this first trailer for Ant-Man.

1.  It looks like this is one of those stories where one superhero (Michael Douglas’s Hank Pym) hands the reigns over to the new generation (Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang).

2.  Doesn’t Michael Douglas looks a lot like his dad Kirk Douglas these days?

3.  The likelihood of a movie being good improves when it takes place in San Francisco (Vertigo, Bullitt, Big Trouble in Little China, So I Married an Axe Murderer, Foul Play, Star Trek IV, Time After Time, Dirty Harry, Zodiac).

4.  How can they miss with Paul Rudd as the lead?  We liked him from early on when he co-starred with Alicia Silverstone in Clueless back in 1995.  He even had a role on Veronica Mars.

5.  Kudos for actually showing us Ant-Man’s supersuit and the superhero in action.
