Is This the First Photo of Corey Stoll as Ant-Man's Yellowjacket?
Has the first glimpse of the Big Bad from the upcoming Ant-Man movie hit the internet? Movie news website MoviesBook released a photo that they're claiming is the first look at Corey Stoll as Yellowjacket:
The image is low-quality and hasn't been confirmed by anyone at Marvel, but if it is really Corey Stoll under there, then fans will likely be happy with Yellowjacket's costume. It has that creepy quality of being both organic and mechanical, and essentially is a more sinister mirror image of Ant-Man's costume from the recent concept art.
In the comics, Yellowjacket's alter ego is Hank Pym, Ant-Man's mentor who ultimately becomes a member of the Avengers and the Defenders. Hank Pym will be played by Michael Douglas in the film, but will not take on the mantle of Yellowjacket. That name will go to the film's primary villain, Darren Cross, a former protege of Pym's who takes over his company and uses the Ant-Man technology to create the Yellowjacket suit.
Ant-Man comes out on July 17, 2015.
