The new Funko POP! figures have revealed a big spoiler for the upcoming “Captain America: Civil War”. As photos of these new POP toys flood the internet, one just cannot help it but think of the Ant-Man. A closer look will reveal the secret! It’s a Giant Man toy, indicating that Ant-Man will grow to be Giant Man but Marvel is still quiet about Giant Man.
However, one can’t help but wonder that since the toy is out in the market, then there is a big possibility that he will be making an appearance in the movie. Peyton Reed, the director of “Ant-Man” had hinted that he might explore some of Scott’s alter egos, like Giant-Man or Goliath.
“Yeah. I mean, it’s such a crucial part of his character in the comics,” he told Comic Book Resources last month. “I think to ignore that would be crazy, because there’s a lot of rich stuff.”
According to Techinsider, the original Ant-Man (Hank Pym, played by Michael Douglas) uses the shrink-enabling pym particles to grow to 12 feet tall, with an increased strength to match. However, if the toy is anything to go by, then Paul Rudd, the second Ant-Man (Scott Lang), will tower over the rest of the Avengers in the upcoming film.
“Listen, I think with Hank Pym and Scott Lang, and with that technology, I think it’s safe to say at some point somewhere you’re going to see some real growth for that character,” Peyton Reed told Screen Junkies. “I hedge my bet there, because it could be sort of growth as a human being, emotional growth, or literal giant growth. There’s a good chance of that.”
That is not the end of the story yet. International Business Times claim the Funko Pop! figures spoil a lot more. The collectibles also revealed more about other heroes; things like their weapons or facial characteristics. For instance, they show Agent 13 with batons, a new sword for War Machine and the scarred face of Crossbones. All the figures can be seen on Funko’s Instagram.
