The reception to Ant Man and the Wasp has been fairly good so far, but there is one minor gripe that fans have been having: Wasp’s suit is a lot less colorful than it is in the comics. The suit does look great, but it’s hard not to notice that it’s a lot more grey than its comic counterpart. There is still hope, though, because the newly revealed Marvel Legends figures for Ant Man and the Wasp showcase Wasp with a more comic accurate suit.
The wasp suit in the comics typically has a prominent gold color, unlike the movie suit which has a more grey and blue color scheme.
If these new Marvel Legends figures are a true indication of what we’ll see in the movie (which they usually are), then Hope could be rocking a suit with a golden color palette at some point.
The suit has the same design as the one we’ve seen but with gold in the torso and arms. This could mean Hope gets a different outfit at some point in the movie, or her current suit could get a major upgrade from her father. While there is a chance this gold suit is only being used for the toys, I’m hopeful (no pun intended) that Hope Pym will wear it in Ant Man and the Wasp.
The Marvel Legends figure for Ant-Man was also revealed.
There’s nothing new revealed from this figure, but what is worth noting are the realistic likenesses of Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly. Hasbro recently started using a digital printing technique for the faces of their Marvel Legends figures, and the results have been great. I will definitely be adding these two to my MCU collection. -Caleb Sadd
