It was recently made official at SDCC 2014 that Corey Stoll (‘The Strain‘, ‘House of Cards’) would take on the role of Yellowjacket in Marvel’s upcoming ‘Ant-Man‘ film and now he is finally able to share a little bit about the character that he’ll be portraying.
First up, he talked about the costume that he’ll be wearing. While it isn’t finished quite yet, Stoll gave some solid details that gives us an idea of what to expect. “I’ve had several costume fittings and it’s looking amazing. It’s still in flux, they’re still figuring out exactly how it’s going to look, but it’s going to be awesome… In this story Darren Cross, who was in the comic books but was not Yellowjacket in the comic books, he has a suit that is sort of the next generation of Ant-Man’s suit. It can do everything that Ant-Man can do, but more. It’s more badass, more militaristic, sleeker… sort of like if Apple had designed a battle suit.”
With what they’ve told us about the film so far, this sounds like a solid take on the villain. If he’s taking the technology and throwing it in another, more modern direction, the design style seems right. As a huge fan of Stoll I think he’ll be able to do a fun take on an evil CEO who is using the suit and Pym Particles, or whatever they call them here, for his own gain.
