New Concept Art Reveals That Arnim Zola Was Supposed To Appear In Peyton Reed's ANT-MAN

As it turns out, Captain America: The Winter Soldier wasn't supposed to be the last time we saw the dastardly, digitized Arnim Zola. Hit the jump for some great new concept art from Ant-Man!

Arnim Zola's reappearance in 2014's Captain America: The Winter Soldier was a big surprise for fans, with the character revealed to have survived death by transferring his consciousness into a computer. While Zola was (seemingly) annihilated when the secret S.H.I.E.L.D. bunker was blown to smithereens by HYDRA, it turns out there was another planned appearance for the conniving villain. Artist Josh Nizzi has released some new concept art from Marvel's Ant-Man on his website which shows that Zola was meant to be in the film, with an even more comic-accurate robotic body, no less. 

Prior to the release of Ant-Man in 2015, Latino Review had reported that an early draft of the script featured both Arnim Zola and a young Alexander Pierce (Robert Redford) present in the S.H.I.E.L.D. meeting we witness at the beginning of the film. Of course, the film released and the meeting included Hank Pym, Howard Stark, Peggy Carter and Mitchell Carson, with Zola nowhere in sight, but it seems he was initially planned to be included.

Do you want to see Zola appear with his classic robot body? Sound off below!
