Ant-Man details are coming fast and furious these last few days. After yesterdays news blitz, we now hear from the villain of Peyton's Reed's piece, Corey Stoll. According to Darren Cross and and Henry Pym’s daughter Hope Van Dyne collude to wrest control of Pym Technologies from Henry Pym.
Said Stoll, “I’ve discovered my own version of [Pym Particles] and I’m using it for militaristic purposes. I’ve even started to use the technology myself, which as a sort of psychotic effect on people if they use it too much. I can’t get into the details of all the goodies of the Yellowjacket suit but it’s several generations advanced from what Ant-Man has. And then I put it on—and then I am Yellowjacket!”
Here's a rundown of everything Stoll told Entertainment Weekly:
- Daren Cross is a child prodigy, discovered by Henry Pym at a young age and mentored to help grow and evolve Pym Technologies.
- The shrinking, Pym Particles are something of a myth at Pym Technologies but Cross comes across evidence of their existence and demands that Pym handover the tech. Henry refuses out of ethical concerns.
- Cross is smart enough to create his own version of the technology but his version has drawbacks, mysterious "psychotic side effects."
- On Peyton Reed replacing Edgar Wright, Stoll stated, "When I first met Peyton I was expecting to meet somebody very nervous and did not see that at all. He was so comfortable. He’s such a fan at heart and was having so much fun that that was really infectious".
Ant-Man arrives in US theaters on July 6, 2015.
