(Warning - very minor SPOILERS for Captain America: Civil War lie below. Proceed with whatever level of caution your innate SPOILER-aversion suggests...)

Now, it may not have quite hit the box office heights of The Avengers - or even Guardians of the Galaxy - but for a movie many fans had written off long before it arrived on our screens, Ant-Man sure did win a whole lot of hearts when it hit theaters earlier this year. Somewhat inevitably, that victory had a whole lot to do with Ant-Man himself - as played by the widely adored Paul Rudd - proving to be just so darned likable.

Which, in turn, meant that there was relatively little surprise to be found when Marvel Studios announced that Ant-Man would be making a pretty substantial appearance in next year's Captain America: Civil War.

What is, perhaps, a little more surprising, however, is the fact that from the looks of a newly leaked set of promo art...

Ant-Man's Costume Is About to See a Pretty Big Change

Or, rather, a relatively subtle but surprisingly comprehensive one, as you can see from the side-by-side below...

Not only - should the promo art prove accurate - has his helmet been substantially streamlined, but his entire suit has been fundamentally altered, and very much brought into the 21st century.

Which, you'd have to imagine, probably has quite a lot to do with his impending team-up with Captain America and the rest of his Civil War gang, including...

The Winter Soldier

Hawkeye

And, of course...

Cap Himself

...with some sneaky appearances by Falcon and Ant-Man...

Though, it looks as though everyone's favorite Ant-Man might just need the help, seeing as he looks set to go up against the likes of...

Black Widow

And, of course...

Iron Man

All of which kind of makes you wonder whether Ant-Man might just need yet another suit upgrade by the end of the movie...

What do you reckon, though?
