SPOILERS: This character was a big Captain America: Civil War secret and now he’s all over their TV spots, posters and images

OK, so if you’ve seen Captain America: Civil War – and if you’re reading this despite the spoiler warning we’re assuming you have – you’ll know that there’s an amazing fight at the airport.

And you’ll know that Paul Rudd’s Ant-man goes from being tiny to being MASSIVE during the scene and, frankly, it’s glorious.

And Marvel wanted this to be a secret until the movie was released (despite apparently accidentally revealing it).

Well, not only is the secret out along with the movie but Marvel are now happy to put Giant-man in loads of publicity stuff like the first official image (above), a new poster from artist Paolo Rivera (below)

And finally a new TV Spot (bottom) featuring him too. So Giant-man is everywhere and that’s fine by us…

Iron Man and Cap, along with the rest of The Avengers, are kicking seven bells out of each other right now in cinemas


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
