‘Captain America: Civil War’ Directors Open Up About Ant-Man’s Big Change

Spoilers for Captain America: Civil War to follow. Captain America: Civil War directors Anthony and Joe Russo have spoken out about one of the most geeked-out moments of the new film: The big change that Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man undergoes in the movie’s climactic airport fight scene.

In the midst of the battle, Scott Lang sees an opportunity to help Team Captain America and tries out a new feature of his Ant-Man suit at the great risk of endangering himself: Growing bigger instead of smaller and becoming Giant-Man.

It was definitely a thrilling moment for fans and undeniable confirmation for Scott Lang that he belonged among the heavy hitters of the Avengers, despite being a new — and comparatively inexperienced — recruit. Sure, he was eventually taken down thanks to the other team’s rookie, Spider-Man, but not without the full force of Iron Man and friends behind him.All in all, it was a pretty epic debut as an Avenger for an ex-con. He’s come a long way from Baskin-Robbins.(Source: USA Today)
