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
