MARVEL has released a first-look image of Paul Rudd as its latest super-hero, Ant-Man.

The photo, by Zade Rosenthal @ Marvel, show Rudd wearing a hoodie and standing within range of San Francisco’s iconic Golden Gate Bridge.

Marvel Studios began principal photography on Monday (August 18, 2014) in San Francisco, California, on the film, which is based on a comic character first published in 1962.

Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael 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.

Directed by Peyton Reed (Bring it On, The Break-Up), the film also stars Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Abby Ryder Fortson, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, Wood Harris, John Slattery and Gregg Turkington as well as multi-hyphenate T.I.

Ant-Man is set for release in the UK on July 17, 2015.
