The whole experience of Comic-Con is pretty amazing. Things that you wouldn’t expect fly out of the woodwork. Like this pre-production concept art by Marvel artist Andy Park that features the suit that Paul Rudd will be wearing in Ant-Man. This is a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive, and I am happy to say that I am pleased with what they have done with the suit.
Michael Douglas is playing Doctor Hank Pym, the scientist responsible for making the suit. Rudd plays Scott Lang, who steals the suit to make himself a better thief. Of course it is going to be one of those “hooker with a heart of gold” scenarios. Without a doubt we will see Rudd change his ways and use his newfound powers for good.
This has been a project that I have been very interested in for a while. Even with all of the recent director controversy, I feel that Marvel will do everything they can to make sure we, as fans, are entertained.
Filming of Ant-Man will not start until August, however, with the release of this concept art; I don’t think that this will be the last we see of this movie this weekend. Marvel has a panel in Hall H on Saturday, and I will be able to give you a more in-depth look at what the studio has in store for us this next year.
