Marvel's [The Avengers: Age Of Ultron](movie:293035) is a few weeks away but I think a lot of people are forgetting there's another Marvel film coming out right after it! I'm talking about [Ant-Man](movie:9048), you guys - maybe he's just too small to notice. That shouldn't be the case, though, as it looks like it's gonna bring some big intense action! Entertainment Weekly has released the first official image of Yellowjacket vs. Ant-Man and it's beautiful!
The way they describe the Yellowjacket suit is also quite daunting considering Ant-Man has no weapons on his suit and Yellowjacket pretty much has features along the lines of Iron Man's Mark suits!
They say a film is only as good as its villain, but maybe they should change that to a villain and his suit. In Marvel’s Ant-Man, Paul Rudd plays jailbird-turned-superhero Scott Lang, who has the power to shrink himself and control his six-legged namesakes, thanks to gear designed by inventor Hank Pym (Michael Douglas). But Lang’s armor is positively pacifist compared with the more advanced suit worn by the nefarious Darren Cross, a.k.a. Yellowjacket (Corey Stoll). “Hank Pym’s Ant-Man suit doesn’t have a single weapon,” says director Peyton Reed (Yes Man), “whereas Yellowjacket is armed with plasma cannons."
That's not to say though that Ant-Man's suit is completely useless, as it holds some other abilities for Scott.
“Ant-Man is very fast when he’s small,” he says. “Also, when he shrinks, he increases his density, so he’s got increased strength.”
I'm pretty happy with the way Yellowjacket came out and wouldn't have his suit any other way! I love the picture as well. I think it gives us a great perspective as to what to expect from Ant-Man! I can not wait for this film and see where it fits in with the MCU!
