New teaser for Ant-Man introduces the film’s villain, Yellowjacket

Earlier this year, we got our first good look at the villain in Marvel Studios’ upcoming Ant-Man movie, and now a new promotional video for the film offers a formal introduction to the miniature, one-man army known as Yellowjacket.

The 30-second video is framed as a marketing pitch for tech firm Cross Technologies, and features company president Darren Cross (The Strain actor Corey Stoll) explaining the military applications of the Yellowjacket, a heavily weaponized suit that allows the wearer to shrink to insect size and conduct espionage, infiltrate, and otherwise battle enemy forces using the high-tech, size-changing armor. Along with providing a bit more context for the Yellowjacket character, the video also features some new footage from the film, helping us get an idea of exactly what our heroin, Ant-Man, will be up against.

The final movie in “Phase Two” of Marvel Studios’ cinematic universe, Ant-Man stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang, a former thief who’s recruited by scientist Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) to pull off a heist that will prevent Pym’s groundbreaking, size-changing technology from falling into the wrong hands. Evangeline Lilly (Lost) plays Pym’s estranged daughter, Hope Van Dyne.

As with all Marvel movies, several characters from other projects in the studio’s cinematic universe are expected to appear in Ant-Man, including Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell) and Tony Stark’s father, Howard Stark (formerly played by Dominic Cooper, now played by Mad Men actor John Slattery). The cast is filled out by Judy Greer (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Martin Donovan (Inherent Vice), Wood Harris (Dredd), Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire), and Michael Pena (Fury).

Directed by Peyton Reed (Yes ManBring It On), Ant-Man is based on a script penned by Edgar Wright, Joe Cornish, Paul Rudd, and Adam McKay.

Ant-Man hits theaters July 17.
