Marvel’s “Ant-Man” Paul Rudd proves that you don’t necessarily have to pick on someone your own size.

A new 1-minute teaser, which debuted Tuesday, showcases the “Ant-Man” costume, epic stunts and Rudd’s “awesome” one-liners.

Rudd plays Scott Lang, who gains the power to shrink in size and increase in power when he obtains the “Ant-Man” costume. He has to channel his inner hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas), to save the world.

Cast also includes Hayley Atwell, Evangeline Lilly, Judy Greer, Corey Stoll and John Slattery.

The film will premiere July 17.

This isn’t the only time Rudd will put on the Ant-Man costume. Next summer, Rudd will reprise his role as Scott Lang in “Captain America: Civil War” alongside the Avengers cast.

Rudd has starred in TV shows before, one of which included his¬†regular appearance on NBC’s “Parks and Recreation.” He also also starred in multiple films, which include “I Love You, Man,” and “This is 40.” The actor is currently filming “Sausage Party,” where he will star alongside Salma Hayek, James Franco and Kristin Wiig.

“Ant-Man” is produced by Big Talk Productions. Kevin Feige is producing, while Peyton Reed is directing.
