From the Hill to the Sky: The Evolution of Ant-Man

Ant-Man Evolution Header

There is a reason comic fans eagerly anticipate that first blurry shot of their favorite character’s costume after a cinematic adaptation is announced. True fans know that almost every comic book character in history has gone through numerous costume changes (except maybe the Hulk—tiny shorts and a bare green chest forever), and every fan wants to see their favorite character’s costume represented accurately on screen. Since comics are illustrated, turning hand-drawn ideas into tangible and realistic on-screen attire can be a challenge. Thankfully, though, it looks like the creative team behind the Ant-Man film has paged thoroughly through comic history and found the right mixture of both old and new for our favorite pin-sized superhero. As you "ant"icipate the film's release next Friday, enjoy reading up on Ant-Man's interesting evolution!

Gentry is an Inbound Marketing Specialist at Halloweencostumes.com. His favorite costume of all time was his attempt at a Clint Eastwood “Man with No Name.” He found out that ponchos aren’t just good for the dusty West, but come in handy in the cold of a Minnesota October. With the new Star Wars movies about to be released through Disney, he is looking forward to seeing the amazing new helmets, sabers and all-around awesome cosplay based on the galaxy far, far away.
