Warning: possible spoilers below…
Last week we had a spoiler for Captain America: Civil War via some LEGO sets that suggested a certain major character would make an appearance in the film. Well, now it looks like we have confirmation that it’s not just for the LEGO tie-ins.
The website Southern Hobby has listed their Captain America: Civil War Funko POP! figures, which lists one as: “Captain America 3 – 6″ Giant Man”. This suggests that Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man is going to get an upgrade when he joins The Avengers this coming April.
Ant-Man hasn’t been seen in the trailers yet outside of the D23 footage, so we should probably expect to see him in the next trailer release. But if he’s revealed to also be Giant Man in the movie remains to be seen. This could be something that Marvel want to have as a surprise, even though their merchandise is giving it all away.
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.
Captain America: Civil War is set for release on April 29th 2016 in the UK and May 6th 2016 in the States, with Anthony and Joe Russo (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) directing a cast that includes Marvel Cinematic Universe veterans Chris Evans (Steve Rogers/Captain America), Robert Downey Jr. (Tony Stark/Iron Man), Anthony Mackie (Sam Wilson/Falcon), Jeremy Renner (Clint Barton/Hawkeye), Scarlett Johansson (Natasha Romanoff/Black Widow), Sebastian Stan (Bucky Barnes/The Winter Soldier), Elizabeth Olsen (Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch), Paul Bettany (The Vision), Don Cheadle (James Rhondes/War Machine), Paul Rudd (Scott Lang/Ant-Man), Emily VanCamp (Sharon Carter) and Frank Grillo (Brock Rumlow/Crossbones) and William Hurt (General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross) alongside new additions Chadwick Boseman (Get on Up) as T’Challa/Black Panther, Daniel Bruhl (Rush) as Baron Zemo, Martin Freeman (Sherlock) and Tom Holland (The Impossible) as Peter Parker/Spider-Man.
