A New ‘Captain America: Civil War’ Rumor Suggests Paul Rudd Isn’t Just Playing Ant-Man

When it comes to rumored plot details for upcoming comic book movies, the best practice to follow is usually one of two options:

  1. Take everything you read with a massive, reality-smashing grain of salt.
  2. Read absolutely nothing, which means locking yourself up in a cabin in the woods. Or turning your Wi-Fi off.

JoBlo reports that several new minor-but-key details have come up in regards to the first film of Marvel’s Phase Three. These possible scoops are “minor” because they have less to do with the film’s plot and more to do with certain characters’ actions and appearances. Yet they’re still “key” because, welp, it’s a Marvel film.

You can read all about them in the original post, but one stands out enough to warrant comment. It concerns Paul Rudd’s Scott Lang, who first becomes the titular Ant-Man this July, but will also pop up in Cap’s third adventure.

you can expect to see Ant-Man take on his GIANT MAN form (about 15-20 ft. height) and square off against Iron Man and his team. In terms of visuals, we’ll also see Ant-Man standing on one of Hawkeye’s arrows, ready to be launched.

Again, take this with a daily-sodium-intake-ruining grain of salt, but yeah. Not only will Lang momentarily adopt a version of the Giant Man persona in Captain America: Civil War, but he’ll also do this:
