Marvel Studios’ senior concept illustrator Jackson Sze , has revealed the new concept art for Janet’s Wasp suit in the original Ant-Man film.
Ant-Man and the Wasp introduced Michelle Pfeiffer to the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Janet Van Dyne, the original Wasp. However, Janet first appeared in the original Ant-Man, though she only appeared briefly and in full costume so no actor was needed. Newly revealed concept art from the original Ant-Man shows a different version of what Janet’s Wasp costume could have looked like.
Take a look at Janet’s Wasp suit below!
Took a pass at designing Janet’s Wasp suit for the original #Antman film. Wanted to keep the retro technology feel established in Hank Pym’s Antman suit. Check out @andyparkart posts for the final version you see in the film! #AntManAndTheWasp pic.twitter.com/dEY1eLD9vh

And also final version from Andy Park
When designing both Wasps in #AntManAndTheWasp I had to figure out how to differentiate their backpack & wings. Janet’s was more retro & insect-like, Hope’s is more sleek & modern. I also always saw them as being very light & flexible, not rigid. Very fun to design! #thewasp pic.twitter.com/SUyJsInMyv

Per comicbook, “It’s tricky, because we talked a lot about how to introduce [Hank and Janet], and I always wanted to see some glimpse of them in the ’80s,” Reed said. “We talked about doing action sequences, we shot some stuff, and it just felt like… I think I’ve learned this along the way – as much as, as a fan, I want to see flashbacks, the present tense story is the thing. That’s the thing that really matters to me – and also that I felt like it didn’t want to be active. It really wanted to be emotional grounding, because after all, this is a movie called Ant-Man and the Wasp. It really has to be about the emotion of a daughter finding her mother after all this time.
