Paul Rudd's Ant-Man movie costume on display...

Marvel's most unlikely hero, 'Ant-Man', bursts on to the big screen this Summer and like all good origin stories, the tale of how this superhero movie was made was also fraught with its fair share of intrigue, trouble and strife. After being developed since 2006 by co-writer and director Edgar Wright, Peyton Reed was brought on board to replace the director in 2014. Fortunately Paul Rudd stuck around to play the size-changing, reformed criminal 'Scott Lang', whilst Michael Douglas was cast as the comic book's original Ant-Man, 'Dr. Hank Pym'.

Paul Rudd's original Ant-Man costume was photographed on display in the foyer of the ArcLight Hollywood cinema on June 21, 2015.

Sammy Sheldon was Costume Designer on the movie, and is also known for her fantastic work on V for Vendetta, X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass, Hellboy 2 and The Imitation Game.

In this Marvel Studios adaptation of the original Avenger, Scott Lang is recruited by Hank Pym and given super-suit which allows him to shrink in size, increase his strength and control an army of ants to help pull off the ultimate heist to protect mankind.

At first glance Ant-Man may not seem as mighty as the other Avengers, but I'm sure this hero from Phase Two of Marvel's Cinematic Universe will be a new favourite at conventions and Halloween in the future. Enjoy the photos, I hope the details help all the costumers, cosplayers and comic book fans out there.

If you're a Marvel fan, be sure to also check out all these Avengers: Age of Ultron costumes, Guardians of the Galaxy movie costumes, Thor: The Dark World costumes and props, Iron Man 3 armours and even costumes from The Amazing Spider-man 2.

I'm fortunate enough to be going the Hollywood premiere next Monday, so can't wait to see this suit (and a super-toned Paul Rudd) in action in what looks like a pretty funny, action-packed film.
