Corey Stoll Explains His 'Yellowjacket' Suit In ANT-MAN

The design may still be a work-in-progress, but Corey Stoll has described how his Ant-Man villain will look in the movie and vaguely what he'll be capable of doing, at least compared to the titular hero!

Now that all the hype from San Diego Comic-Con has died down a bit, I've manage to pick up on quite a few interesting interviews that were overlooked last weekend. In one of them, Corey Stoll talks with Nerd Repository about his Ant-Man role as Darren Cross, who The Strain actor has said is a protégé of Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) before taking over his company, Pym Particles, and becoming the Yellowjacket. “I’ve had several costume fittings and it’s looking amazing,” said Stoll of his high-tech villain suit in the movie. “It’s still in flux, they’re still figuring out exactly how it’s going to look, but it’s going to be awesome. In the comic books, Yellowjacket was an incarnation of Henry Pym, and he sort of did some ethically duteous things as Yellowjacket. In this story, Darren Cross, who was in the comic books but was not Yellowjacket in the comic books, he has a suit that is sort of the next generation of Ant-Man’s suit. It can do everything that Ant-Man can do, but more. It’s more badass, more militaristic, sleeker… sort of like if Apple had designed a battle suit. I just think the battles and the stuff that we're going to do is gonna be so cool.” In addition to what Corey Stoll has explained, previous Ant-Man rumors, which now appear to be legit, had revealed that Yellowjacket will be yellow and black in color (obviously), and he will also have a tendril-looking apparatus coming off of his back. What do you think?



Armed with the astonishing ability to shrink in scale but increase in strength, con-man Scott Lang must embrace his inner-hero and help his mentor, Dr. Hank Pym, protect the secret behind his spectacular Ant-Man suit from a new generation of towering threats. Against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, Pym and Lang must plan and pull off a heist that will save the world. Directed by Peyton Reed, Ant-Man stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Corey Stoll, Evangeline Lilly, David Dastmalchian, and Michael Pena, and  the film is scheduled for release on July 17, 2015

I am still holding out hope that this movie will be awesome!!!!!!

Lord have mercy on this film's soul.
0megaDaGod - 8/1/2014, 8:06 AM
Go watch GOTG

Tell me they can't make a dope ass Ant Man movie
PymParticle - 8/1/2014, 8:07 AM
I'm sure they can make a "dope ass" Ant-man movie but it sure ain't this one
Pasto - 8/1/2014, 8:08 AM
So far this film sounds like the opposite of 'dope'.
yossarian - 8/1/2014, 8:11 AM
The past 2 weeks at work are over! Thank [frick]ing God.
EzioKenway1225 - 8/1/2014, 8:11 AM
i still have faith in this film.. more so since Guardians for some reason..but i have faith in Peyton Reed, he seemed genuinely enthusiastic at Comic Con and i like the idea of it being a heist film and i like the mentor/mentee angle..i wish the best for this film..i hope its good

I have faith in this film and I think it's going to be dope, but... That's the exact same thing that happened in Iron Man.

In Marvel we trust, after Guardians I have to trust Marvel's judgement. I am really looking forward to this.

It's not the heist film, director, or script similarities with Iron Man that are "worrying". Not at all.

It's really the unnecessary raping of source material, particularly Janet and Hank and then making the film about "Hope" and Lang. -- I could probably live with Darren Cross as Yellowjacket if they hadn't [frick]ed up two of the most important characters and founding members of the Avengers.

I agree with @0mega. Guardians worked so will Ant Man. I like the description of the yellow jacket costume.


Old Man Pym for the win!
Klone - 8/1/2014, 8:22 AM
[frick]ing butcher and rape.
Phronesis - 8/1/2014, 8:22 AM
Yeah... No excitement, anticipation, nothing for this film. It has nothing to do with the director and cast, it's just the deviations are overwhelmingly irritating.
Chloefornication - 8/1/2014, 8:23 AM
"sort of like if Apple had designed a battle sui"

So it's an overpriced suit that does everything the other ones does but with several limitations? :3
Phronesis - 8/1/2014, 8:23 AM
@PymParticle A-[frick]ing-greed.
EzioKenway1225 - 8/1/2014, 8:23 AM
its an inverse more of the Tony Stark/Obadiah Stane relationship.. where in that..it was the father figure/mentor trying to take over the company..in this its the protege who has taken over the company
Doopie - 8/1/2014, 8:23 AM
what reservations do people have about this?
InfiniteMonkey - 8/1/2014, 8:24 AM
I can't wait to see Lilly in that skintight outfit!

Boobs!
Klone - 8/1/2014, 8:24 AM
They can but make a dope one but... pfft. Of course Pym being a far more morally questionable character with mental health issues that could go through one of the greatest character arcs in the entire Cinematic Universe and be a stand out in the Avengers in terms of character and ideology is nowhere near as fascinating as... this.
Phronesis - 8/1/2014, 8:24 AM
@TheRealRemyLebeau At this point I don't think anyone has the right to say this movie can't work. But don't act as if the deviations is what will make this movie successful. Old Man Pym for the win? Give me a break.
Klone - 8/1/2014, 8:25 AM
I stuck up for Taylor and I've liked some of Wright's movies but I honestly fail to see how the evil company is to blame based on the information I personally have been privy to.
Gusto - 8/1/2014, 8:25 AM
Godamn...I had such high hopes for this movie.
Oh well. Thank God for drinking.
Doopie - 8/1/2014, 8:26 AM
Okay I can understand that changes to the source are frowned upon by many (even though other changes aren't that much of a problem) but regardless, that doesn't stop this film itself being a good one. It might not be the way many had hoped for Pym and Janet to fit into the MCU but the film can still be quality
Gamera623 - 8/1/2014, 8:26 AM
Yeah I love Hank Pymm and wish he was Antman, but I have faith in Marvel and I'm sure the MCU version of the character is going to be fantastic.

But I'll stop wasting my breath on this site. Haters gonna hate.


EzioKenway1225 - 8/1/2014, 8:26 AM
i can sympatheize with people who wanted something more source material accurate..but as a film..i think it sounds really cool and has the poential to be a good movie atleast
Klone - 8/1/2014, 8:27 AM
Pym not creating Ultron is almost as bad as omitting Uncle Ben from Spider-Man's origin in my opinion.
Klone - 8/1/2014, 8:28 AM
@Doopie

You are right. Drastic source deviations will not render it a bad film however fans of the character will not be able to look past that.
Snotzo - 8/1/2014, 8:28 AM
If Apple designed a battle-suit... That sounds horrible.
Phronesis - 8/1/2014, 8:30 AM
Following the logic on this thread alone, The Fantatsic Four should be one of the most anticipated CBM's ever.
Klone - 8/1/2014, 8:30 AM
An Apple battlesuit... I get flashes of the Robocop (2014) suit except with a white-grey colour, shine and with the logo lighten up on the chest.
Klone - 8/1/2014, 8:32 AM
Here is to hoping this film is delayed, rewritten and recasted.
Barchiel - 8/1/2014, 8:32 AM
Nothing but bitching in the comments. That time of the month?
EzioKenway1225 - 8/1/2014, 8:33 AM
Phronesis-i am very curious about FF..it could be good..its definitely more inspired by Ultimate FF which is fine .its just some of the things about the tone and it maybe having a found footage element to it have been so-so on the project..i am looking forward and i have faith in this because i really like the cast,it being a heist film sounds cool and i like the mentor/mentee angle
Doopie - 8/1/2014, 8:33 AM
there's still a chance that they nail Pym's character even though he won't be a founding member of the Avengers and there's still a chance he has some hand in creating Ultron. Remember Marvel has a habit of lying and misleading the audience.

I think they're gonna make a good film - or at least it has potential, particularly the large/small action sequences
