Captain America: Civil War has been out for a year-and-a-half, and we’re still getting little nuggets about the movie. While the power struggle between Cap and Iron Man may have played out long ago, it’s still a journey we like to reflect on time and again. As film fans, it’s still a massive achievement that it worked as well as it did.
Part of that success came in the form of the now-iconic airport scene, where Team Cap and Team Iron Man went head-to-head in an all-out battle. Not only did our favorite heroes duke it out on the big screen, but there was even one big ace in the hole that came in the form of Ant-Man.
In the film, Team Cap needs extra time to enact a plan, and in order for it to work, they’d need a distraction. Scott Lang came forward with an idea, and the result ended up being the crowd-pleasing reveal of Giant-Man. Concept designer Andy Park recently took to Twitter to show off a motion concept art that shows the super growing in size.
Check it out below:
2018 is gonna be awesome! @MarvelStudios 10 years anniversary! Wow! And we’ll get to see #AntMan rise up to the challenge of a sequel movie in July. This was the 1st keyframe of Giant-Man I painted on #CaptainAmerica Civil War pic.twitter.com/4OWse2Yb7T

It’s quite the impressive showcase, and one hell of a way to sell a concept, and the motion blur utilized can’t really be undersold. One interesting aspect of this image is Cap himself. In the film, Ant-Man is very much Team Cap, but in this piece of art, it almost looks like he could be an adversary of Ant-Man.
Closeup of one of the Ant-Man/Giant-Man keyframes I illustrated for Captain America: Civil War. Yes, I know Cap & him were on the same side, but not in an early draft of the script. I'm glad he eventually went on #TeamCap Makes more sense. #antman #giantman #ironman #captainamerica #captainamericacivilwar #conceptart #costume #design #helmet #그림 #그림스타그램 #marvel #marvelstudios
This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this. In an earlier piece shared by Park last year (shown above), one image showed Cap clearly knocking out Ant-Man, so it seems like the decision to have Ant-Man on Cap’s team came later on in the process.
