We’ve been getting teases of ‘Ant-Man‘ for quite a few years now. From test footage to behind the scenes images here and there to concept art at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, we’ve gotten plenty of looks of Dr. Hank Pym’s size-shifting creation. However, Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang won’t be the only one suiting up in the upcoming Phase Two finale. Corey Stoll is lined up to take on the mantle of Yellowjacket and the villainous paraphernalia that comes with it. Previously, we saw a leaked image of the antagonist, but now we have something a little more official that shows off the big bad of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s smallest hero.
By now, we’re used to seeing our favorite superheroes on every bit of merchandise out there, so it’s not really surprising to hear that there are some Ant-Man pajamas in the pipeline. But the ads for said PJs have given us a belated Christmas present. A banner from British sleepwear company Aykroyds and Son not only gives us a closer look at Lang’s heroic alter ego, but we also get a better look at Yellowjacket. You can see the image below, followed by a close-up of the fearsome foe and the official synopsis of the movie:
The next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe brings a founding member of The Avengers to the big screen for the first time Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man. Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world.
This promotional artwork definitely jives with the previous looks that we’ve gotten of Yellowjacket, so it’s very possible that this is how we’ll be seeing that character on the big screen in summer 2015. But until we get to see the real thing in a teaser or a trailer, we’ll have to keep speculating about the final product. For now, let us know what you think about this newly released image in the comments below.
‘Ant-Man’ starring Michael Douglas, Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, and Corey Stoll flies into theaters on July 17, 2015.
