This ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Funko Pop Toy May Hint at Big Things for Ant-Man
Action figures don’t always necessarily reflect what happens in the movie on which they’re based, though they do sometimes feature elements that were originally supposed to be included in the film and occasionally — when images leak early — can provide insight into specific sequences or even offer potential spoilers. That said, an upcoming Funko Pop vinyl figure may very well reveal something big for Ant-Man in Captain America: Civil War.
ComicBook.com picked up this photo of an upcoming Funko figure of Giant-Man — not Ant-Man for their Civil War product line:
You may recall that Funko had a grey Hulk figure for Avengers: Age of Ultron, and while we never saw a grey Hulk in the film, earlier reports suggested that Joss Whedon originally intended to have Hulk go grey at some point in the film.
So, what does this mean for Ant-Man in Civil War? Obviously, we might see Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang transform from Ant-Man to Giant-Man to appropriately engage in the titular war between the Avengers. It might be a scene they’ve already filmed, thought it could easily end up scrapped, making this new Funko figure a mere novelty. At the very least, we could still see Giant-Man in Ant-Man and the Wasp — either way, it’s fun to think about.
Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6.
