Marvel has released the first trailer for Peyton Reed’s “Ant-Man,” which stars Paul Rudd as the insect-sized superhero and Michael Douglas as his mentor.

Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale, but increase in strength, con man Scott Lang (Rudd) must embrace his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas), 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.

Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Michael Pena, Bobby Cannavale, John Slattery, Judy Greer, Jordi Molla, David Dastmalchian and T.I. co-star in “Ant-Man,” which Disney will release on July 17.

Based on the Marvel comic character first published in 1962, “Ant-Man” continues the lineage of epic big-screen adventures chronicled in Marvel’s “Iron Man,” “The Incredible Hulk,” “Iron Man 2,” “Thor,” “Captain America: The First Avenger,” “Marvel’s The Avengers,” “Iron Man 3,” “Thor: The Dark World,” “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Guardians of the Galaxy” and the upcoming Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron.”
