One 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:
Closeup of one of the Ant-Man/Giant-Man keyframes I illustrated for Captain America: Civil War. Yes, I know Cap & him were on the same side, but not in an early draft of the script. I'm glad he eventually went on #TeamCap Makes more sense. #antman #giantman #ironman #captainamerica #captainamericacivilwar #conceptart #costume #design #helmet #그림 #그림스타그램 #marvel #marvelstudios
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
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.
