We know that the team rosters in Captain America: Civil War were subject to change quite a lot in the creative development process of the film, as The Russo Brothers, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, and Kevin Feige all tried to decide where each of their available heroes were going to side in the film. One of the movie’s many highlights came from Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man as well, who not only sided with Team Cap, but also ended up being one of their most valuable players as well, with his shocking… GIANT secret power.
As it turns out though, while the Giant-Man reveal was always going to happen in the movie it seems, it looks like Scott Lang wasn’t always going to side with Steve Rogers in the film, with some new concept art showing him fighting Cap himself during that iconic airport sequence.
The new piece come from artist Andy Park, who revealed some early artwork he made for the film, which does indeed depict Giant-Man trying to take down the Star Spangled hero:

Considering that it was eventually Spider-Man who took Giant-Man down in the film, I have to wonder if this version of the teams was either one of the backups in case they couldn’t get Spidey for the movie, or if there was ever an iteration where Peter Parker sided with Captain America instead.
With all of that being said though, Scott’s allegiance to Cap was set up fairly well in the Ant-Man standalone movie, thanks to his brief interaction/fight with Anthony Mackie’s Falcon in the middle of the film, and in the final moments as well. I can’t imagine Civil War without some of those Ant-Man moments too, including him geeking out meeting Cap or when he shrinks inside of Iron Man’s suit, which is why this was probably one of the studio’s better decisions when it came to the brainstorming process for Civil War.
Captain America: Civil War will be available on Digital HD on September 2nd, before being released on blu ray and DVD on September 13th.
