Walt Disney Studios and Marvel Studios have provided us with this high-resolution image giving a first look at Paul Rudd as Scott Lang in Marvel’s Ant-Man (July 17, 2015). The film has just begun filming in San Francisco, as indicated by the image sent to us.
Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael 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.
Marvel Studios began principal photography today in San Francisco, California, on its newest Super Hero franchise Marvel’s Ant-Man. The film brings one of Marvel comics’ original founding members of The Avengers into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The production also shoots on location in Atlanta, Georgia, which serves as the base for the film’s production.
Set for release in the United States on July 17, 2015, the film is directed by Peyton Reed and stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man; Michael Douglas as his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym; and Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, daughter of Hank Pym.
Walt Disney Studios and Marvel Studios have recently released the mid-credit scene from Guardians of the Galaxy which features a young Groot offshoot secretly dancing to the Jackson Five’s ‘I Want You Back,’ as seen in the clip embedded below.
Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy continues to dominate the box office while promotion is already beginning for its sequel and in-between all that, the stills won’t stop coming. Walt Disney Studios have provided us with 17 newly released stills in high resolution and — as with the last batch — there will be spoilers contained among the rest of the photos from the gorgeous film. If you still haven’t seen the film, you probably won’t want to go any further than this.
It may be debatable to call it a spoiler when the film has already been out for a week, but just in case you’re one of the few that hasn’t already seen Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy in theaters, you will probably not want to look at many of the dozens of new hi-res stills provided to us by Marvel Studios and Walt Disney Studios — you have been warned.
Given that the tree-like lead in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy stays true to character and speaks only three words in a specific sequence — i.e., ‘I am Groot,’ — it would probably be fascinating enough to watch and listen to actor Vin Diesel record the lines with various inflections. That just wasn’t enough for Walt Disney Studios and Marvel Studios, however, who have shared with us this video of Diesel recording the line, not in English, but in Brazilian Portugese, Latin American Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, Russian and French. Recorded at the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, Diesel sports stilts to help him get into character in the following B-roll footage. (Links in previous statement go directly to the :30 international spots featuring the Guardians of the Galaxy dubbed in the various languages, which include Diesel’s performances.

Walt Disney Studios and Marvel Studios have provided us with the full, credited cast list for Guardians of the Galaxy (August 1, 2014) and while we don’t see any big surprises in terms of who will show (or not show) their face in the film, we do have role names for them, hinting at where they can be spotted throughout the film.
