So that's what Yellowjacket looks like!

After debuting a 30-second teaser during Sunday's MTV Movie Awards, Marvel Studios released the second full-length trailer for Ant-Man Monday. The footage gave movie buffs their first look at Corey Stoll in action as the evil Darren Cross, a.k.a. Yellowjacket. Paul Rudd, meanwhile, plays jailbird-turned-superhero Scott Lang, who has the power to shrink himself and control his six-legged insect namesakes, thanks to a suit designed by inventor Hank Pym (Michael Douglas).

"Hank Pym's Ant-Man suit doesn't have a single weapon, whereas Yellowjacket is armed with plasma cannons" director Peyton Reed says in Entertainment Weekly's Apr. 17/24 issue, on newsstands now.

That doesn't mean the titular hero can be easily defeated, however. "Ant-Man is very fast when he's small," Reed explains. "Also, when he shrinks, he increases his density, so he's got increased strength."

How did it feel to join the Marvel Universe?

"It was a new experience as far as the motion-capture-suitness of it," Rudd, 46, tells the magazine. "But none of it feels that different. Every part, I'm pretending to be somebody I'm not. It's all just a big lie!"

Similar to Chris Pratt in Guardians of the Galaxy, Rudd is known for his comedic work. He gets the opportunity to showcase his abilities when Scott says he needs "to stop breaking into places and stealing stuff," only to be told by Hank, "I need you to break into a place and steal some stuff." He also thinks ants are "kinda cute" and hasn't warmed up to his superhero name, joking, "I know, it wasn't my idea."

The movie also stars Judy Greer, Evangeline Lilly and Michael Peña.

Ant-Man arrives in theaters July 17.
