We knew this day would come eventually. The latest film to get the "Honest Trailer" treatment from Screen Junkies is Ant-Man, Marvel's summer blockbuster that was directed by Peyton Reed and starred Paul Rudd.
So what do they nit-pick? They start off by pointing out that Scott Lang is surprisingly unsuccessful for someone deemed to be a "master thief." The Hank Pym (Michael Douglas)/Darren Cross (Corey Stoll) storyline is very similar to one Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.)/Obadiah Stane (Jeff Bridges) had in 2008's Iron Man. Another similarity between the two films comes when Hope van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) looks at The Wasp costume and remarks, "It's about damn time." That's quite a bite like Lt. Colonel James "Rhodey" Rhodes (Terrence Howard) looking at the Iron Man suit and saying, "Next time, baby."
Check out the rest of their nitpicking in the video below.
Marvel's Ant-Man - Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
The sequel, Ant-Man and The Wasp, will arrive in theaters July 6, 2018.
