Releasing teaser trailers to stir up anticipation for full trailers has become increasingly common in recent years, but Marvel has taken it a step further with the first Ant-Man teaser. Published on Friday, the “ant-sized” look at Ant-Man offers just a few seconds of footage of Marvel’s 2015 film… but it’s too tiny to see.

That’s right — stretching just a few pixels wide, the footage in the Ant-Man teaser is completely impossible to make out. It’s sure to frustrate impatient fans, but at least they’re having fun with it. The full, “human-sized” teaser will premiere on January 6th during the premiere of Agent Carter, which airs at 8 p.m. ET.
This is actually Marvel’s second teaser of the week. On Thursday, Marvel released a teaser for the second full trailer of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Age of Ultron will be the first Marvel movie of 2015 in May, followed shortly after by Ant-Man in July.
Ant-Man will star Paul Rudd as the lead character alongside Evangeline Lilly, Michael Douglas and Corey Stoll. It will be the final film in the second phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which began in 2013 with Iron Man 3. Phase 3 will be the most expansive yet, stretching over the course of four years and nine feature films.
