Little people. big movie.

In a recent chat with EW, Ant-Man director Peyton Reed talked about the differences between Paul Rudd's heroic Ant-Man, and his arch-enemy, Corey Stoll's villainous Yellowjacket.

In the film, Rudd wears a suit designed by Michael Douglas's Hank Pym. “Hank Pym’s Ant-Man suit doesn’t have a single weapon, whereas Yellowjacket is armed with plasma cannons," said Reed. The film's biggest fight scene was shot using motion capture, filming both actors separately and compositing them together.

Regarding the rumors of reshoots, Reed had this to say, "We are going to do a little bit of additional photography, but we have not done any yet. It’s minor stuff.”

Along with the rundown of Yellowjacket's weapons came the first official image of the villain, seen above. Ant-Man opens on July 17, and Stars Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Corey Stoll, and Evangeline Lilly.
