Most Marvel fans know to go expect a few curveballs in their movies, (and to ALWAYS stay during the ending credits!), but was a major Ant-Man spoiler revealed by hands other than Marvel’s? LEGO already has a track record of such leaks; such dropping the Iron Man 3 plot twist with Aldrich Killian, and giving us a view of the Vision before his poster was officially revealed. This time the victim of possible spoilage is Ant-Man, by way of an interesting image for an Ant-Man LEGO set.
The LEGO set, titled “Final Battle”, features Scott Lang and Yellowjacket engaged in what is, presumably, their “final battle”. It’s important to note that the character depicted on the box is Scott Lang because another character is featured in the set- Hank Pym.
You may be wondering why Pym’s appearance would have negative assumptions being drawn from it. After all, it’s no secret that in the film Pym, the original Ant-Man, hires Paul Rudd‘s Scott Lang to steal back his Ant-Man technology. Maybe the Ant-Men of old and new band together to fight for the cause. This hesitance is because rumors about where Pym’s loyalties lie have been circulating since last year when Michael Douglas was announced in the role. Variety even initially reported that Pym was the villain, but edited the report upon Marvel issuing an official press release of the casting. What’s more, when the “Final Battle” set was previewed at a toy fair in Nuremberg, the set didn’t even feature Yellowjacket- just the battling figures of Lang and Pym. It’s also been noted that Pym’s costume is “darker”, and “more menacing-looking” than Lang’s
Whether we’re reading too much into the placement of these toys or not, this possible little spoiler nugget will certainly drum up more hype for the film, which opens in theaters on July 17th.
