We all know the great nemeses of all the great comic-book-movies.
Batman has the Joker. Spider-Man has the Green Goblin. Even the Guardians of the Galaxy have Ronan the Accuser and/or Thanos.
But who does Ant-Man fight?
The main villain in Marvel’s upcoming ‘Ant-Man’ is Yellowjacket, played by Corey Stoll.
In the comics, Yellowjacket is another alias for Hank Pym’s Ant-Man/Giant-Man/anything-that-shrinks-or-grows-man (get your mind out of the gutter).
In the movie, Yellowjacket’s human alias is Darren Cross (played by Corey Stoll), a business man who has purchased Pym Industries to acquire the “Ant-Man technology.” Technology he uses to become Yellowjacket, basically Ant-Man fused with Doc Ock’s arms. See the photo below.
See? He can get all small and shit like Ant-Man, only he has four mechanical arms… which makes little sense, as a wasp has only six arms. He’s not a spider… or Doc Ock.
Still, he looks serious as shit and Darren Cross/Yellowjacket will do all he can to stop Hank Pym and Scott Lang/Ant-Man from completing their heist that will save the world.
‘Ant-Man’ crawls into theaters on July 17th.
