New Civil War concept art shows Ant-Man fighting for a different side

08.24.2016

In the immortal words of Master Yoda, “size matters not.”  Well, with all due respect, that guy was f@cking wrong. In fact, I can think of one moment where size mattered a whole lot.

During the airport fight sequence in CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, the fight really turned in Team Cap’s favor when the bite-sized Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) turned it up to 11 and became Giant-Man. Once he became humongous, he was able to smash and swat at all the normal-sized folks below. However, this massive advantage almost swore his allegiance to someone else, if this concept art by Andy Park (via Comic Book Resources) is to be believed.

Take a gander!

As you can see, Ant-Man, at one point, was fighting for Team Iron Man and was instead taking swats at Captain America (Chris Evans). Chances are, once Marvel saw the team Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) assembled they realized having a force like Giant-Man—on top of Vision (Paul Bettany), Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman)—seemed like a bit of overkill. Hence, they switched him over to Team Cap to even the odds. No doubt Cap would’ve been screwed without the little/big guy, so switching him was a smart move—especially considering Team Cap was also in much need of a comedy boost.

CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR is set for a digital release on September 2, while a Blu-ray and DVD release will follow on September 13.

I liked Civil War, but it did feel like the way some of these characters chose sides was a bit arbitrary. I think there was also some other early concept are showing Sharon Carter as part of the Captain America team, so maybe once Marvel and Sony worked out a deal they bumped her by bringing antman over and had spider-man take his place on iron man's side.

Probably the concept art before securing the rights to Spiderman

My understanding is that they had two scripts for this: one with Spiderman and one without him. Just a thought, but I agree the teams would have been pretty unfair.

What the 2 guys below said it's true. Also, in order for the fight to be even, there had to be the same number of heroes in both sides.

Wouldn't have made sense anyways....

Scott Lang has been established as being not a big fan of corporations and has stated he isn't a big fan of Stark so it made sense he would join Cap. Plus, he's like the ordinary guy--- the audience--- who got handed over a second chance ala the Ant-Man suit so he, like Spider-Man, is a fanboy on Cap's side whereas Spidey is a fanboy on Iron Man's side.

It wouldn't make sense for Ant Man to fight for team Stark after all of the criticism Pym said to Lang throughout the first Ant Man film. It would also be like betraying Pym in a way, I guess.
