Ant-Man hasn't been a major fixture of the Captain America: Civil War promotion, but we've known he was going to be in the film ever since Falcon teased his imminent arrival with a post-credit blurb. Interestingly enough, there might be certain story reasons that Ant-Man's been absent from a lot of the toy line attention to this point, but we won't spoil that here today. No, instead, we're just going to take a look at the updated Ant-Man suit the character is apparently donning in the film.
Tamashii Nations' SH Figuarts Captain America: Civil War line already has its two biggest guns up for pre-order, but for the third character in the series, the company went with arguably the least well-known hero of the bunch. The SH Figuarts Ant-Man beats characters like Black Widow and Falcon to release, but that's sort of okay with us. It would be nice to get that Black Widow Figuarts after like sixty movies. Ant-Man doesn't exactly have a million toys exploding off of shelves either, but at least this time we know a Black Widow is almost definitely, probably, assuredly coming and not just a pipe dream. But hey, Ant-Man!
By now, everyone is familiar with the interconnectedness of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and how every film references what came before and what’s arriving next. So it makes sense that Ant-Man, the riskiest Marvel endeavor yet, will supposedly be filled with references to one of Marvel Studios’ surest things: the new Spider-Man. We guess the bug-themed superheroes have to stick together, huh?
