"Is it too late to change the name?" asks Paul Rudd, who plays the protagonist in the latest Marvel flick "Ant-Man." Yes, the first teaser of the much anticipated movie is out and it (the teaser) does not have many fans. But in the era of technology and YouTube, if fans do not like the teaser of any movie, they make their own. So "Ant-Man" too has a fan-edit trailer that has more chutzpah to it. Lets take a look at both the trailers closely.

The one released by Marvel comics opens with a wide angle view of Bay Bridge between Oakland and San Francisco. Paul plays the character of Scott Lang, who is getting arrested in the teaser. But the voice of Michael Douglas in the background tells him that he is "watching him" for quite some time now and wants him to take up his role (of Ant-Man) to earn respect in his daughter's eyes. The trailer then shift to the affectionate scenes between him and his little daughter. We also get the first look of Paul's "Ant-Man" suit that is quite superhero like. Then comes the racy background music as action and drama unfolds with Paul riding over a giant ant to "save the world." However, not many fans are happy with this newly released teaser.

"I love the Marvel cinematic universe, I think Paul Rudd is awesome, and yet... I don't feel this was a good trailer," writes Data Chandler on I09.

"Marvel's got a lot of credit in the bank with me, but... man. No fun or stakes or intrigue apparent here. I hope the next trailer is better," writes another fan marlowespade on the same website.

The fan-edit trailer by Patrick Willems is quite similar to the original Marvel trailer if one happens to watch without music. But Willems has changed the background music to make it sound more retro and even edited few scenes from the latest teaser movie. It has more punch in it since it tells that the movie is made by same team that was behind some of the most successful movies like "Iron Man." The writer of "Anchorman" and the Director of "Bring It On" are also on the team of "Ant-Man," says the fan-edit trailer of the movie. Check out both the teasers below. The edited trailer is later. The movie will be released worldwide on July 17, 2015.
