Is This Your First Look at ‘Ant-Man’ Villain Yellowjacket?
At Comic-Con, Kevin Feige confirmed that 'House of Cards' and 'The Strain' actor Corey Stoll would be playing Yellowjacket (aka Darren Cross). We've since sorta wondered what the Yellowjacket suit would look like, and now courtesy of a very random tweet, we may have that first look. Before the big reveal, let us just say that this is not confirmed, but does look similar to early concept art for the film we know existed.
There were some reports that claimed with was a shot from the set, but unless it's a photo of a monitor, it looks more like someone took a photo of the image on their computer. How it leaked is unclear, but judging from what we know about Marvel and their aggressive pursuit of people who leak their secrets, the person who took this photo might want to start shopping for wigs and book the next bus ticket out of town.
As for the suit itself, it looks pretty good. If we're being honest, we like the design of this Yellowjacket suit better than what we've seen out of the Ant-Man suit so far (and all we've really seen from the post-Edgar Wright era is this bit of production art).
In the comics, Yellowjacket was actually one of the suits worn by Hank Pym (and, we heard one of the earlier drafts had Pym as the eventual villain of the piece), but in this film will be worn by Cross. Like Ant-Man, he can shrink his size down, also able to fly using the suit's wings (not unlike Falcon). His main weapon is a "Bio-Sting" gun, though that may change in the movie.
What do you think of the new look? Let us know in the comments below.
