Details about “Captain America: Civil War” have been let out after new Funko Pop! figures were previewed. Photos of the vinyl collectibles from “Civil War” have made their way to the internet, and they reveal that Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) will experience quite a change in the new Marvel film.
According to a picture that shows Ant-Man’s new Funko Pop! figure, Ant-Man will become Giant-Man. The company is making a special 6’’ collectible to celebrate his growth.

“Ant-Man” director Peyton Reed previously teased that he might explore some of Scott’s alter egos, like Giant-Man or Goliath. “Yeah. I mean, it's such a crucial part of his character in the comics,” he told Comic Book Resources last month. “I think to ignore that would be crazy, because there's a lot of rich stuff.”
Marvel hasn't confirmed Giant-Man's appearance, but it seems unlikely that the toy would be made if he weren't. It still isn’t clear exactly what Scott will be doing in the third “Captain America” film, but he’ll definitely be on Cap’s (Chris Evans) side. One Avenger who won’t be around to pick a team is the Hulk (Bruce Banner). He’ll still be missing after flying away in “Avengers: Age of Ultron,” but it looks like Giant-Man can fulfill Hulk’s duties.
That’s not all the Funko Pop! figures spoil. The collectibles also revealed batons for Agent 13 (Emily VanCamp), a new sword for War Machine (Don Cheadle) and Crossbones’ (Frank Grillo) scarred face. See them all Funko Tree's Instagram.
Of course, Ant-Man’s evolution will only be one of the major developments in “Captain America: Civil War.” The film pits Cap against Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) after they disagree over legislation that would control superheroes. Ant-Man is just one of the heroes joining their fight. Spider-Man (Tom Holland) and Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman) will also be introduced in the first Marvel Cinematic Universe Phase Three film.
