The ‘Ant-Man’ pic just keep pouring in! After photos were revealed that gave us a better look at the costume and we got to see the trailer for the first time, we are getting more pictures of Paul Rudd as the ant-sized hero and of Yellowjacket. The photos are featured in the most recent issue of Entertainment Weekly.
Corey Stoll who plays Yellowjacket also revealed a couple things about his character and his experience dealing with director Edgar Wright leaving the project and being replaced by Peyton Reed.
“I was this child prodigy that Michael Douglas’ character Hank Pym discovered at an early age. He nurtured me and I was part of his technology company. I started to become aware of these rumors of this fabled technology that can shrink people to half an inch while keeping their full-size strength. And I became very obsessed with it and demanded that we move forward. But Pym had sort of buried it for ethical, moral reasons. I’ve discovered my own version of [Pym Particles] and I’m using it for militaristic purposes. I’ve even started to use the technology myself, which as a sort of psychotic effect on people if they use it too much. I can’t get into the details of all the goodies of the Yellowjacket suit but it’s several generations advanced from what Ant-Man has. And then I put it on- and then I am Yellowjacket!”
“I followed the ridiculous ins and outs of the director search just like everybody else. When I first met Peyton I was expecting to meet somebody very nervous and did not see that at all. He was so comfortable. He’s such a fan at heart and was having so much fun that that was really infectious.”
See the rest of the pictures after the jump.
