Though he be little, Ant-Man is certainly a big member of Team Cap in Captain America: Civil War. And, with fans falling for Paul Rudd's portrayal of the superhero, new concept art for the character has been released which shows off his sleek suit.
Uploaded to Twitter by Andy Park. the Visual Development Supervisor shared two images of what Ant-Man could have looked like in Marvel's most recent MCU installment. In the tweet, Park wrote, "My fav part of #CaptainAmericaCivilWar was designing #AntMan Updating him after designing the original was a treat."
The concept art shows Ant-Man standing atop what looks like fallen rubble with his hands clenched into fists. As for the hero's iconic uniform, the images don't look all that different from what fans were actually shown in the film. Most noticeably, Ant-Man's helmet appears to be more streamline in these photos as its antennae hug closer to the hero's gunmetal gear. But, largely, the outfit's evolution from the standalone Ant-Man film to present is a welcome change as the character's utility belt, wrist gauntlets, and tech have all received welcome upgrades.
Park has worked on several Marvel films such as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Thor: Ragnarok, Ant-Man, and Captain America: Civil War. Over the past week, the artist has uploaded various concept pieces from Captain America: Civil War which feature alternative looks for heroes such as Hawkeye and Scarlet Witch. And, unsurprisingly, fans have reacted very positively to Park's rich designs.
Ant-Man, whose solo film was released back in 2015, has done well with audiences despite his film's initial production shake-ups. Originally directed and co-written by Edgar Wright, he left the project in Spring 2014 after citing creative differences which led Peyton Reed to take over the film. Starring talent like Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Michael Peña, and Michael Douglas, Ant-Man grossed more than $519 million with its humor pleasing fans. And, with the film's sequel scheduled to hit theaters in July 2018, audiences may just get to see more of Park's version of Ant-Man in the near future.
