‘Captain America: Civil War’ Concept Art Pits Giant-Man Against Steve Rogers

Captain-America-civil-warOne of the biggest highlights — literally — of Captain America: Civil War was the airport fight that featured the debut of Scott Lang transforming into Giant-Man. In the 2016 mashup of superheroes, Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man was recruited by a fugitive Captain America — and Lang wasn’t exactly hard to persuade. What fans might not know, is that Cap nearly ended up on the wrong side of the giant-sized reveal.

Thanks to new concept art posted on Instagram by Marvel Studios Visual Development Supervisor/Concept Artist Andy Park, we now know that Lang sided with Tony Stark in a much earlier version of the script. You can check out that art below:

From a fighting standpoint alone, that would have been quite the fight to see, considering Cap can’t fly like Iron Man or swing from high points like Spider-Man. Of course, the comment section on Instagram is full of debate on if Lang’s decision to side with Rogers in the film made sense given his arc in 2015’s Ant-Man. On the one hand, Lang learned a dislike of Tony Stark from Hank Pym. On the other hand, Rogers’ goals did seem a bit personal for someone like Lang to agree to help so quickly.

What do you think? Does this art excite you for what could have been and would it have made sense? More importantly, who would win in that fight? Sound off in the comments below!

Captain America: Civil War is available digitally and on Blu-ray / DVD.

7 Worst Moments In Good Superhero Movies

Superhero Movies X-Men Man of Steel The Avengers

There happens to be an abundance of good to great comic book films. It’s a medium that can be challenging to adapt for the big screen. Making solid movies while staying true to the material is always challenging and it’s quite a feat when a filmmaker is able to accomplish something like that. Of course, there have been many superhero films that have been successful, but no film is truly perfect. Perfection is an impossible standard to achieve, but greatness is definitely attainable.

With any good or great film, there are bound to be a few bad moments and flaws, and the same can be said for the opposite. Some of these bad moments stick out more than others, but they’re pretty much always there, no matter how good the film is. While it’s easy to overlook these flaws, it’s also important to study them. With that in mind, I decided to write about some of the worst scenes in what are otherwise considered good superhero movies.

Here are the 7 worst moments in good superhero movies. Click Next to get started!

  • Hmmm, it might have made more sense for Scott to have been in Team Iron Man. If he was looking to go straight it doesn’t really square that he would go so far out of his way to do something illegal and get locked up. Now he’s an international fugitive, so it’ll be interesting to see how that pays into his sequel film.

      Actually I’d tend to disagree.
      Him teaming with Cap (thus committing a crime and becoming a fugitive) actually plays more true to his character, since from his solo movie, we learn that the reason he was in trouble with the law in the first place was out of a (misguided) sense of trying to do the right thing (by his daughter) or rather doing a wrong thing with the right intentions.

      It’s the same case here, whereby even though he’s is breaking the law by helping Team Cap, he’s doing so for good reasons for the right (moral) reason.
      Him suddenly turning into a flunkie for the law and joining team Iron Man would ring false to who he is – even as a person trying to get straight with the law – since that’s just not who he is as a person.
      A tool to be used by the government or law enforcement to try to get other people who are only trying to do the right thing.

      It’s the same reason why Black Widow turned against Tony.
      She may have disagreed with how Cap went about the whole thing (even trying to talk him out of it), but she didn’t disagree with WHY he was doing it.

      On the flip side it totally rings true to what we know of Rhodey, and to some extent of what we know Vision to be.
      Spider-Man was just a kid who got roped into the side he ended up in because he just wanted to be part of the Avengers.
      I suspect that if you played the story longer than the movie did, eventually even Spidey would turn against Tony just like he did in the comics.
