During the early production phases of Marvel’s Ant-Man, Latino Review (now LRM) reported a rumor that the movie would feature an appearance by Arnim Zola in the first act prologue. This appearance would have been alongside Alexander Pierce in a meeting which would have shown Hank Pym with Howard Stark and Peggy Carter.
Although a version of this scene made it into the final movie, Alexander Pierce and Arnim Zola were absent from this scene. Marvel concept artist Josh Nizzi (who previously worked on Marvel’s Daredevil as well as Avengers: Age of Ultron) recently released new concept art which showcases previously unseen designs for Ant-Man. Among these designs is concept art for Arnim Zola, indicating that he was intended to be in the final movie.
Zola’s appearance in the film would have been of a hologram of his face digitally projected onto a robot body. This is similar to his appearance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier where he was shown to have uploaded his consciousness into a supercomputer. This robot form may have been intended to show a transition state between Zola’s appearance before being uploaded into the computer.
The concept art also shows many different appearances for Scott Lang’s army of Ants in the movie. In these pictures, it clearly shows in greater detail the different microtechnology devices that the ants were retrofitted with during the movie. You can check them out in the gallery below:
Marvel Studios contracted the graphics company Perception for help in creating the final post-credit scene of Spiderman’s spider signal in Captain America: Civil War. Perception created several alternate logos, which may be seen in the gallery below, as visualized in contrasted to the final logo in the film.
These alternate logos are all extremely diverse in design.Some of them resemble a targeting reticule as well. One of these logos indicates how much web fluid remains in his web shooters. This may indicate that these designs were more tactical in nature. Interestingly, one of the spider signals showcases a message from Tony Stark, asking him to stop by in order to upgrade his suit further. This is extremely interesting as it showcases a merging of Spiderman’s traditional logo with a complex user interface.
