Marvel have just released a new, fun little viral video for Ant-man.

The clip (below) is a news piece looking at the aftermath of Avengers: Age of Ultron and then it leads neatly into Ant-man. But what’s a really nice touch, is that the news is hosted by Christine Everhart who appeared in the first Iron Man, played by Leslie Bibb, and then appeared briefly in Iron Man 2 as well.

If you go to the Twitter feed in the video you will also find that it’s teasing something about Scott Lang coming on Tuesday the 7th of July.

Ant-Man also stars Evangeline Lilly (“LOST,” The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies) and Michael Douglas (The Game, And So It Goes) and brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time. Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang (Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (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.

Also starring are Corey Stoll (“The Strain,” “House of Cards”), Judy Greer (“Archer,” Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Martin Donovan (Inherent Vice, Insomnia), Wood Harris (Dredd, Remember the Titans), John Slattery (“Mad Men,” Iron Man 2), Gregg Turkington (“Gravity Falls,” The Comedy), and Abby Ryder Fortson (“Togetherness,” “The Whispers”), Ant-Man features a script by Edgar Wright, Joe Cornish, Paul Rudd and Adam McKay and is directed by Peyton Reed.

Ant-Man opens in theaters on July 17.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
