All week I have shared details from my Marvel Ant-Man set visit. I interviewed Paul Rudd, Peyton Reed, Judy Greer and Abby Ryder Fortson and I have shared tons of behind-the-scenes details. But I saved the best picture for last. Are you ready for it?
I am Ant-Man!
Putting on the helmet trickier than just sliding it on. It took several minutes to fit me into it, sliding it on and then screwing on each of the four sections of the jaw and face to complete the look.
While checking out the Ant-Man costume, we were allowed to touch and feel the different parts of the Ant-Man costume. Let me tell you a little movie magic – the metal looking pieces on the suit are actually a lightweight, rubbery material. When creating the costume everything was done to make the suit as wearable as possible for Paul Rudd, while keeping it authentic looking.
- 13 Ant-Man costume suits
- 17 Ant-Man helmets
- 15-17 Ant-Man belts
- 8 Ant-Man pairs of gloves
Here is a little fun fact about the Ant-Man belts. The “hero” belt, the one used for close-ups, is made of more than 50 pieces while the stunt belts are a single piece.
I may not replace Paul Rudd, but it sure was cool to try on are of the Ant-Man costume and strike a hero pose.
