Marvel kicked off the summer movie season last month with their epic sequel Captain America: Civil War, which has gone on to become the highest-grossing movie so far this year. The blockbuster has taken in over $400 million domestically and $1.1 billion worldwide. Yesterday, concept artist Andy Park revealed early designs of Scarlet Witch and Hawkeye, but today we have a new glimpse at Ant-Man's early costume design.
Andy Park actually designed the original costume for last summer's Ant-Man, so naturally he was the perfect choice to re-design a new look for Captain America: Civil War. In just five years, he's become a go-to artist for Marvel, having worked on Captain America: The First Avenger, The Avengers, Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Galaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron and Ant-Man, along with the TV shows Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Daredevil. It remains to be seen if he will be working on any of Marvel's other upcoming movies, such as the highly-anticipated Avengers: Infinity War movies.
Since Andy Park designed the new Ant-Man suit it's possible he also designed the massive Giant Man costume as well. Since the artist has been in such a sharing mood lately, hopefully we'll get to see early renditions of the Giant Man designs. Giant Man was considered by many fans to be one of the highlights of Captain America: Civil War, with most hoping he'll transform into this massive superhero once again in Ant-Man and the Wasp, hitting theaters in the summer of 2018.
Marvel's Captain America: Civil War finds Steve Rogers leading the newly formed team of Avengers in their continued efforts to safeguard humanity. But after another incident involving the Avengers results in collateral damage, political pressure mounts to install a system of accountability, headed by a governing body to oversee and direct the team. The new status quo fractures the Avengers, resulting in two camps-one led by Steve Rogers and his desire for the Avengers to remain free to defend humanity without government interference, and the other following Tony Stark's surprising decision to support government oversight and accountability.
It's possible that Ant-Man and possibly even The Wasp (Evangeline Lilly) from the upcoming sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp could also return for both the Infinity War movies. Production is scheduled to begin this November on both movies, which will shoot back to back. While we wait for more on these new movies, check out the Captain America: Civil War concept art for Ant-Man's costume below.
