Ant-Man Villain Corey Stoll: Movie Is Unlike Anything You've Seen Before

Corey Stoll, who plays villain Yellowjacket in director Peyton Reed's upcoming Ant-Man movie, told Collider during a recent interview that he thinks the film will be groundbreaking, saying that it's different from any of the other superhero movies on the market.

"Reading the script -- the script that Edgar [Wright] wrote, and the script that there is now -- it's insane that this movie hasn't been made before," Stoll said. "Obviously, you need the technology because it needs to look great. But the whole idea of the changing of scale and the experiential effect of size changing is just so cool. You read these scenes on the page, and I just got giddy."

Of course, there have been plenty of size-changing movies before, just not a superhero iteration. There's also serious potential for a size-changing superhero to appear on Arrow this season -- Ray Pallmer, a.k.a. The Atom, was just cast -- which might mean that some of their tricks get used before they get a chance to debut them on the big screen.

Director Reed recently told us that he's not particularly worried about that, though, because of the unique way they're shooting -- and becuase of the dynamic between Hank Pym and his protege, Scott Lang, which apparently exists at the heart of his film.

"I think it's gonna be so much fun," Stoll continued during his interview with Collider. "You can get a little fatigued with superheroes because everybody is just punching everybody or shooting everybody with ray beams. This is a completely different kinetic experience in the theater. Shrinking and growing back, there's just so much material there to root it in. I think it's gonna be great!"
