One of the more memorable scenes in Ant-Man occurred when Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) stole technology from what turned out to be the headquarters for Captain America’s (Chris Evans) new Avengers team. That’s because he faced off with Sam Wilson/Falcon (Anthony Mackie) in a manner reminiscent of the Iron Man-Thor fight from the first Avengers film. Ant-Man won, and was able to escape with the tech he needed for that film’s McGuffin.
Being that we already know that both characters will be fighting on the same team in Captain America: Civil War, fans have been wondering how the third and final Captain America film will develop the pair’s relationship. After all, they’ve already beaten the snot out of each other, and we know that Falcon is looking for Ant-Man’s help per the film’s post-credits scene. Well, according to Mackie, their relationship is going to involve a great deal of humor.
Yeah, our relationship is… yeah [laughs]. It grows in Civil War. But that’s Paul Rudd, man. Paul Rudd and I just make fun of each other all the time, so it just carries over into the movie. So I respect his [Kansas City] Royals — I’m pulling for his Royals — but we just make fun of each other all the time.
Because the Lang character was performed by Rudd, written by Rudd, Adam McKay, Edgar Wright and Joe Cornish, and directed by Peyton Reed, it comes as no surprise that Ant-Man would be the source of a few good laughs in Civil War. Combined with Mackie’s Wilson, who uttered some of Captain America: The Winter Soldier‘s better one-liners, their combination sounds perfect.
It still sounds like there will be plenty of rivalry between the two. After all, Ant-Man did kinda sorta kick Falcon’s ass and get away with it.
