Now, new concept art for Ant-Man reveals that a character from one of Pixar’s most financially successful franchises was once considered for an appearance in the Marvel Studios film.
The concept art shared by conceptual artist Andrew Kim included an illustration featuring a character from Pixar’s Cars.
