Though the road to a proper Ant-Man film adaptation has been paved with decades of purported setbacks, Marvel will finally have the last word on July 17. We were gifted with a proper trailer back in January, but were left with a noticeable lack of Yellowjacket information. Yellowjacket, the equally insect-themed villain to Paul Rudd's really-into-shrinkage hero Ant-Man, is portrayed by Corey Stoll — who did a pretty excellent Ernest Hemingway for Woody Allen's 2011 film Midnight in Paris.

In a recent Entertainment Weekly preview, Ant-Man director Peyton Reed (Yes Man, Bring It On) was quick to squash rumors of the film's troubled shooting process. Specifically citing rumors that he was meticulously reshooting significant chunk of the film, Reed told EW that the only reshooting that's happening is "minor stuff."

Ever the purveyor of keeping it real, Paul Rudd wants us all to know that doing a movie like Ant-Man isn't all that different from his usual output. "Every part, I'm pretending to be someone I'm not," Rudd told EW. "It's all just a big lie!"

This particular big lie hits theaters in July.
