Very disappointing news that Edgar Wright is not involved anymore. I've got a feeling Marvel wanted something that ties in more with rest of the cinematic universe, rather than a quirky offshot. It's a shame, but I'm sure Marvel know what there doing.

Very interested in this movie, but i didn't think the trailer was all that impressive, especially when compared to the Avengers AoU trailer. Especially didn't like the line at the end when Lang asks Pym if its too late too change the name, maybe its just me but i really don't like those kind of jokes, its something i just heard one too many times and i find it annoying.But still, its just a trailer, the movie itself could be great, i really hope its gonna be.

I'm always trying to be Captain Positive about any comic book movies coming out.... But this trailer didn't feel exciting at all. And I know, judging by a trailer is pointless.
If this movie didn't have the long winded history it had of trying to get made and the passion of Edgar Wright only to then part ways and go into another direction, this trailer would be exciting. I just don't think you can replace what would have without a doubt been a fun, exciting, clever and hilarious movie with a very paint-by-numbers trailer. It just looks 'generic Marvel movie'.
You look at the past trailers we got recently -
Iron Man 3 - Ben Kingsley doing his voice which was a HUGE misdirect for every viewer (whether they liked it or not) and made for a very unexpected twist. Add to that all the Iron Man suits, his house being destroyed. This movie had stakes. Thor The Dark World - Weird unexplained phenomena in London, crazy alien characters and worlds compared to any Marvel film prior and again actual stakes with Jane Foster. Winter Soldier - More mystery, espionage, paranoia, action, a very threatening looking villain for both people who knew who he was and who didn't. GOTG - Absolute bananas. Hooked on a feeling, a tree and a racoon with a gun, even crazier alien worlds and creatures, great humour and very self aware. Avengers - A funny opener, then BANG! CREEEEEEEEEEEPY creepy villain, creepy voice, creepy song, no clue as to what could happen, new powers and characters, international settings, HUGE stakes.
Ant-Man - A guy being asked to become Ant-Man just because? Kind of generic attempts at humour. And I agree completely with IncerdibleD, yet another poke at a name of a character that doesn't need to be made fun of. Where Guardians felt self aware and confident, this felt very self concious and not confident at all. I was expecting something along the lines of GOTG. Something that smacked you in the face and said "You didn't want to see this movie. Now you definitely want to". But this looked like Incredible Hulk. Not bad, but forgettable. I'll always be hopeful but I don't think I'll rush to see this movie. But I genuinely hope that when I do see it, I walk out of it regretting not seeing it sooner. I want to love it. But at this rate the only reason I would see it is because I feel obligated to see it because its a Marvel movie, not out of excitement.
I'm thinking that Marvel are testing the waters here by giving us something a little different in the trailer. The trailer leans heavily on the family man/heist element which hasn't been done in their canon whilst looking like a run-of-the-mill Marvel movie.
The guys behind the scenes are no dopes and will be trying a few things out. They have the breathing room since Guardians. They know that even if the film isn't a massive success, it'll still break even which gives them room to try different approaches before the overall franchise starts to get stale.
I'm definitely more worried about Scott Derrickson being in control of Doctor Strange as his movies are a lot of style and not a lot of substance.
