Warning - this is your last chance to turn back if you don't want a twist in Ant-Man potentially spoiled! Still with me? Ok. We all know that at last year's San Diego Comic Con, Marvel revealed that Corey Stoll (House of Cards) would be playing Darren Cross, who would act as the Marvel Cinematic Universe's version of Yellowjacket, here reimagined as a villain.
Well, it appears that even if Cross is a villain - he may not be the villain! At the current Nuremberg Toy Fair, Lego were showing off their upcoming sets, including one from Ant-Man, titled the 'final battle' set. And featured in the set? Both Ant-Man and... Hank Pym. No Yellowjacket, no Hope Van Dyne - just Ant-Man and Hank Pym. So, it would appear that Michael Douglas' Hank Pym will indeed end up being the villain of the movie - assuming the report is accurate. Bear in mind the poster of this information has since just reffered to the second character simply as 'spoiler' - so it's clearly something Marvel didn't want revealed! You can check out the listing below.
Already known AOU Sets
Ant-Man “Final Battle” set with a big spoiler! Includes Scott Lang/Ant-Man, a giant winged ant, the movies foe (Not Yellowjacket, according to the set!) and surprisingly oversized Lego bricks, which looked really great compared to the ant and minifigs.
The set consistet of two minifigs, Scott Lang as Ant-Man and Hank Pym, and also a "giant" winged ant.
It's not as if this hadn't been speculated - many had assumed that Hank would end up being a villain in the movie - but its interesting nonetheless. Could Pym be addicted to the 'psychotic' side effects of the shrinking mechanism used in Darren Cross' Yellowjacket suit? Could he be hiring Lang to steal the suit so he could use it for his own evil purposes? Who knows! But as with all reports like these, be sure to remember that Lego sets aren't always 100% accurate to their movies. Be sure to leave your thoughts in the comments below. Ant-Man is set to release on July 17th, 2015.
UPDATE: The same user has gone on to describe Pym's suit in the set as "nearly the same as Ant-Mans, but mostly black/darker". Perhaps the Black Ant suit wasn't too far off then! It should also be noted that this information appears to be coming froma new user to the site - although the fact it was a main article makes me more inclined to believe the information. Still, don't take it as confirmed!
