Scott Lang is on the run in new set photos of Paul Rudd in Ant-Man and the Wasp.
We’ve already gotten an official look at the Wasp in the upcoming sequel, as well as an even better one via set photos, but this is our best look yet at Ant-Man’s new costume. The photos show Scott Lang doing some very intense-looking running, even if he doesn’t really seem to get anywhere. Check them out in the slideshow below:
The new suit is almost a combination of his Captain America: Civil War and Ant-Man outfits. The belt is much more similar to his original suit while the bracers on his wrists are more like Civil War’s. The design on his chest is like that in Civil War, but sleeker and black instead of grey. It’s also not hard to see the comic book inspiration here.
The design on his chest is no doubt inspired by Giant-Man’s modern costume, which makes sense given he’ll be using his growing abilities in this film as well. It’s also very similar to his 2015 redesign for his most recent solo series by artist Ramon Rosanas.
Ant-Man and the Wasp, directed by Peyton Reed, will release July 6, 2018.
“From the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes a new chapter featuring heroes with the astonishing ability to shrink: “Ant-Man and The Wasp.” In the aftermath of “Captain America: Civil War,” Scott Lang (Rudd) grapples with the consequences of his choices as both a Super Hero and a father. As he struggles to rebalance his home life with his responsibilities as Ant-Man, he’s confronted by Hope van Dyne (Lilly) and Dr. Hank Pym (Douglas) with an urgent new mission. Scott must once again put on the suit and learn to fight alongside The Wasp as the team works together to uncover secrets from their past.”
