New Ant-Man posters remind us that the Avengers could be lurking nearby

(Marvel)

Marvel Studio’s upcoming Ant-Man doesn’t have the benefit of the already established faces of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. Maybe that’s why the new posters for the film—which stars Paul Rudd as a thief who turns to crime fighting with the help of a super-shrinking suit—goes to great lengths to remind us that somewhere in the Cinematic Universe, Tony Stark might be taking a nap. And in a new TV spot for the film, out July 17, Rudd thinks calling in Marvel’s heavy hitters wouldn’t be the worst idea.

The three one-sheets play with some very familiar imagery to make it clear just how tiny Marvel’s pint-sized new hero is. You can check out the posters and the TV clip below.
