Stoll Talks Yellowjacket Costume In “Ant-Man”

Comic Con finished last weekend, but some quotes of importance are still trickling out from convention. One today comes from “House of Cards” scene stealer Corey Stoll who spoke with Nerd Repository about his villainous turn as Darren Cross in Marvel’s upcoming”Ant-Man” film.

In the movie, Stoll’s character is the protege of Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) before ultimately taking over his company, Pym Particles. In the film, Stoll will become the high-tech baddie Yellowjacket and during this interview he discussed his costume’s design:

“I’ve had several costume fittings and it’s looking amazing. It’s still in flux, they’re still figuring out exactly how it’s going to look, but it’s going to be awesome. In the comic books, Yellowjacket was an incarnation of Henry Pym, and he sort of did some ethically dubious things as Yellowjacket.

In this story, Darren Cross, who was in the comic books but was not Yellowjacket in the comic books, he has a suit that is sort of the next generation of Ant-Man’s suit. It can do everything that Ant-Man can do, but more. It’s more badass, more militaristic, sleeker… sort of like if Apple had designed a battle suit. I just think the battles and the stuff that we’re going to do is gonna be so cool.”

Yellowjacket’s suit is expected to be yellow and black in color, with a “tendril-looking apparatus” coming out the back.
