New Ant-Man Images Scuttle Online Plus Paul Rudd & Kevin Feige discuss Edgar Wright's exitThere's been something of an Ant-Man onslaught this week, with first the trailer and now a new set of stills exiting the Marvel nest and squinting in the light of the wider world.

It surely can't be too long until we get some images from the movie or possible even a teaser trailer (if that happens, you have to imagine it will be with the Super Bowl first and then with Avengers: Age of Ultron).

Marvel Studios scored big this year, launching a lucrative new franchise with Guardians of the Galaxy. It may now seem like everybody and their mother was onboard for the outer space adventures of Chris Pratt and a CGI talking Raccoon and tree, but really, Guardians was far from a sure bet – even with the Marvel stamp on it.
