New ANT-MAN Poster is As Boring and Generic as All Other Marvel Posters

Marvel has released a new Ant-Man poster, and like almost all Marvel posters, it lacks any creativity. They slap on as many of the actors as they can (part of that could be contractual obligation) and maybe put the hero in the foreground. Marvel isn’t alone in this design, but Ant-Man needs to be a bit more eye-catching. Avengers: Age of Ultron could afford to have a crap posterAnt-Man is going to need a serious marketing push, and I suspect it will start getting it now that the Age of Ultron campaign is winding down.

Check out the Ant-Man poster below. The film opens July 17th, and also stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Abby Ryder Fortson, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris, Judy Greer, Gregg Turkington, T.I., and John Slattery.

Here’s the official synopsis for Ant-Man:

Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
