Yellowjacket Photo: Possible Picture of Ant-Man Villain Leaks Online

November 7, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

The first picture of the villain in Ant-Man has leaked online, according to reports.

Marvel head Kevin Feige confirmed earlier this year that Corey Stoll would be playing Yellowjacket, also known as Darren Cross.

The picture from an Italian blog hasn’t been verified but has been circulated widely.

Some reports claim that the picture is from the set.

In any case, Stoll recently discussed his role with Clever Movies, noting that Yellowjacket isn’t a typical villain.

He is not a villain in the vein of Thanos or Loki, who are villains that know it. [Cross] is a guy who is not that dissimilar from Michael Douglas’ character, Hank Pym. A brilliant scientist, who is not ethically pure,” he said.

“I think a great thing about the whole movie is that everybody in this movie is in those shades of gray a little bit. I think it will be a fun character to create.”

He also said that the superpower he’s looking forward to having the most is the shrinking ability. 

“It’s so weird…if somebody were to [ask] ‘What [super] power would you want?’ you wouldn’t say, ‘I’d like to be able to shrink down to the size of an ant.’ That seems like being the opposite of a superhero, but when you actually think about all the things you could do if you were that small, and you retained your full-size strength, you would be sort of unbeatable,” he said.

Ant-Man, starring Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, and Hayley Atwell, is slated for a July 17, 2015 release date.
