Ant-Man Yellowjacket first look at Corey Stoll’s costume

Yellowjacket aims to punch the spit out of Ant-Man in first look at the movie’s villain

Ant Man YellowjacketThe Marvel news may be stacked in favour of Avengers: Age Of Ultron right now but Peyton Reed’s Ant-Man is just around the corner, and EW has the first look at Yellowjacket.

“Hank Pym’s Ant-Man suit doesn’t have a single weapon,” said Reed. “whereas Yellowjacket is armed with plasma cannons.”

Yellowjacket, aka Darren Cross (The Strain‘s Corey Stoll) is pictured in combat with Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang in his Ant-Man gear.

“Paul Rudd plays jailbird-turned-superhero Scott Lang, who has the power to shrink himself and control his six-legged namesakes, thanks to gear designed by inventor Hank Pym (Michael Douglas). But Lang’s armor is positively pacifist compared with the more advanced suit worn by the nefarious Darren Cross, a.k.a. Yellowjacket (Corey Stoll).”
