Ant-Man was a late summer hit when it arrived this past July. And it finally comes home on Blu-ray and DVD next month. While we await Scott Lang's presence, we have some new art to share. And it shows what the Ant-Man suit almost looked like. These images come from the Twitter page of conceptual artist Andy Park, who had this to say about these alternate designs.
"Before creating Ant-Man's final look I did several different options keeping w/the retro look necessary. Here's a more different take I did of the Ant-Man suit for the film. These were fun but I'm happy w/what they picked."
The designs aren't drastically different from the suit we see in the movie, but the main differences are in the helmet. Both of these versions have an opening over Scott Lang's mouth, and the second image barely obscures Scott's face, replacing the silver face plate with two large amber lenses that cover his eyes. If director Peyton Reed had gone with this concept, it may have been nearly impossible to keep Scott's identity a secret, since his face is practically visible through the lenses.
Ant-Man represents the next evolution of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and introduces the newest member of the Avengers: Marvel's Ant-Man. Armed with the amazing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, master thief Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) joins forces with his new mentor Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) to protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from ruthless villains! With humanity's fate in the balance, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a daring heist against insurmountable odds.
The supporting cast includes Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Judy Greer, Michael Peña, David Dastmalchian, T.I. and Abby Ryder Fortson. Filled with humor, awesome special effects and exclusive bonus features, this action-packed adventure takes you to new levels of pulse-pounding excitement! Take a look at this concept art below, and stay tuned for more on Ant-Man, which arrives on Digital HD formats November 17 before the Blu-ray and DVD arrive December 8.
