The Ant-Man promotion campaign is a crossmedia campaign which was set up to promote Ant-Man. It started in July 2, 2015 and consists the social media platforms YouTube, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn.

The campaign started with a series videos of WHiH Newsfront on YouTube focusing on Scott Lang and his future release. These videos are supported by posts on Twitter and Google+.[1][2][3] Items from the videos were further discussed in articles on the internet, like on the website Mashable.[4][5]

Besides the story about Scott Lang, an interview of Darren Cross CEO of Pym Technologies was released. The interview was done by a WIRED[6] insider James Rondell. They talk mostly about Darren Cross, Pym Technologies and Hank Pym. This interview was also supported by post on Twitter, Google+ and a LinkedIn page.[7][8][9][10]

The crossmedia campaign was mostly focused on the main characters Scott Lang and Darren Cross, but some of the posts on the Google+ and twitter accounts contain information about various other subjects, sometimes directly related to other movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. For example, on July 4 WHiH World News posted there would be fireworks above the Avengers Tower. Some of these posts were added later but with an earlier date then the campaign started, one of these post even dates back all the way to 2011.
