Che sia questo l'aspetto del villain #YellowJacket interpretato da #CoreyStoll in #Antman? #Marvel #MCU pic.twitter.com/A6j4RkXdTP— MoviesBook (@MoviesBookIT) November 5, 2014
Yellowjacket will be played by Corey Stoll in the film. At San Diego Comic-Con, Stoll said that the character is a protégé of Hank Pym’s who comes to possess a next generation Ant-Man costume. The image certainly seems next gen to me.
In the comics, Yellowjacket is a persona taken on by Pym following a psychotic breakdown. Yellowjacket is much more bold and confident than Hank Pym the scientist, but signs of being sociopathic and comes to represent Pym’s dark side.
The film has combined Yellowjacket with another Ant-Man villain, Darren Cross, who is a rival scientist and industrialist in the comics.
Ant-Man opens July 17, 2015.
