After originally being teased in a catalogue released last December, LEGO has officially released information on the LEGO website about their initial sets for “Captain America: Civil War” — and they’ve confirmed that a character will appear in the film. That character, as teased a few months ago via that catalogue as well as a Funko Pop! Vinyl, that Ant-Man will transform into Giant-Man during the film.
The “Super Hero Airport Battle” is available for order now and features a large, buildable figure of Giant-Man. Additional minifigures of Captain America, Winter Soldier, Scarlet Witch, Iron Man, War Machine and Sharon Carter are also included in the set.
Giant-Man has long been one of Ant-Man’s alter-egos; in the comics, Hank Pym originally used his size-altering Pym Particles to make himself Giant-Man after a few years of adventures as Ant-Man. While Paul Rudd’s character, Scott Lang, has served as Ant-Man in the comics, he’s never actually taken up the mantle of Giant-Man. It looks like that will finally change in “Civil War.”
Yahoo! UK has also posted information about other LEGO sets, including “Black Panther Pursuit” and “Crossbones’ Hazard Heist.”
Directed by Joe Russo and Anthony Russo and starring Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Elizabeth Olsen, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Paul Rudd, Chadwick Boseman, Don Cheadle and more, “Captain America: Civil War” opens May 6, 2016.
