Whenever one Marvel film comes out, it’s only a matter of time before it’s time to shift our focus to what’s next since- with Marvel- there’s always a next. The current film in theaters is Avengers: Age of Ultron, with Ant-Man now officially on deck. That film’s long, fascinating odyssey will finally come to an end when it arrives in theaters on July 17. 

With the studio shifting gears with its promotional machine, from Ultron to Ant-Man, comes the launch of the film’s official website. The site includes this official synopsis:

The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time with Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man.” Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, 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’s “Ant-Man” stars Paul Rudd as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, Evangeline Lilly as Hope Van Dyne, Corey Stoll as Darren Cross aka Yellowjacket, Bobby Cannavale as Paxton, Michael Peña as Luis, Judy Greer as Maggie, Tip “Ti” Harris as Dave, David Dastmalchian as Kurt, Wood Harris as Gale, Jordi Mollà as Castillo and Michael Douglas as Hank Pym.

Peyton Reed directs Marvel’s “Ant-Man” with Kevin Feige producing and Louis D’Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo, Edgar Wright and Stan Lee serving as executive producers. The story is by Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish and the screenplay is by Adam McKay & Paul Rudd. Marvel’s “Ant-Man” delivers a high-stakes, tension-filled adventure on July 17, 2015.

It also includes a “scientific” breakdown of the film’s technology. This includes a slideshow that attempts to explain the film’s science, and makes the first mention of Pym Particles- a well known entity to fans of the Ant-Man comic books. They’re known as what makes it possible for Hank Pym’s suit to shrink the distance between atoms, thus altering their size.
