'Ant-Man' Movie News: Marvel Shows First Footage At Comic-Con That Focuses On Scott Lang & Hank Pym Relationship [VIDEO]

With the Marvel panel hitting Comic-Con and the beginning of filming for Ant-Man commencing soon, director Peyton Reed and stars Paul Rudd and Michael Douglas got together prior to the convention to give fans a taste of what to expect from the highly publicized film.

Paul Rudd Discusses His Disappointment Over Edgar Wright's Departure From 'Ant-Man'

SlashFilm ran through the footage that showed Scott Lang (Rudd) riding an ant with Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) talking to him through a head piece.

"The clip opens on a science lab. In contrast to the super-sleek ones we've seen at, say, Wayne Enterprises or Stark Industries, this one looks older and smaller, almost homey. The camera moves around the room, showing various flasks and vials, a jar with moving ants inside, and Ant-Man's famous helmet.

"Meanwhile, we hear Scott Lang and Hank Pym's voices over the scene. Lang sounds hesitant: 'Dr. Pym, you seem nice, but...' Eventually, he gets to the point: 'I'm not a superhero.' Pym makes it clear he doesn't hold superheroes in high esteem to begin with. 'You're not an egomaniac,' he agrees. 'Superheroes, what a goddamn joke.' Pym continues confidently over Lang's protests. 'I think someone already shrunk your balls,' he says. 'It's a small job.'"

According to SlashFilm, the humor was strong throughout the clip and they could see some of former director Edgar Wright's visuals displayed, even in a short portion.

"The video then cuts to a city at night, with flashing lights and tall buildings in the background. We see a tiny figure in the Ant-Man suit, running across a rooftop. It's Scott, and we can hear him speaking to Hank remotely. It sounds like Scott is on his first adventure, and Hank is instructing him in what to do.

"A flying insect flies toward Scott and he tries to get on, but it won't budge. Hank tells Scott to just jump, so Scott launches himself off the building and he's immediately caught by a flying ant. Scott rides it through a vent, as other insects follow. 'Okay. I got this,' Scott says."

The clip sounds fun and the reaction from the Hall H panel seemed like some people are coming around to Ant-Man after Wright's exit. Rudd and Douglas could make a good team, and both showed confidence in new director Peyton Reed's abilities.

Ant-Man hits theaters on July 17, 2015.
