According to new sources in a Sideshow Collectibles forum, which accurately predicted Ant-Man actor Paul Rudd’s addition to the third installment in the Captain America franchise before its announcement, as well as the minor changes to Iron Man and Captain America’s suits which were leaked online earlier this week, claims that the character Scott Lang will be exhibiting the ability to grow to extreme sizes like his Giant-Man persona.
In the comics, Ant-Man is the name of the hero when he is utilizing his shrinking abilities, while Giant-Man (an ironic pun, Gi-ANT-Man) is the name which tends to be associated with the hero when he grows to skyscraping heights. Interestingly enough, the hero also goes by the name of the Wasp at points in his history, as well as Yellowjacket, who will be the main antagonist in this summer’s Ant-Man film.
It is currently unclear whether the character will go by the name Giant-Man in the film, however the report gives many other interesting facts about the film, perhaps the most interesting being a battle between Captain America “sidekick” Falcon, and Iron Man “sidekick” War Machine. While Captain America against Iron Man may be the premise for conflict, it only makes sense for their two iconic comrades to brawl it out as well.
Expect to see great things next year, when Captain America: Civil War hits theaters on May 6th, 2016.
