SUITING UP FOR CIVIL WAR: BE­HIND THE SCENES

7 Days in Dubai - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Paul Rudd’s Ant-Man suit re­ceived some tweaks for the new movie. The new suit is stream­lined and looks more high-tech to fit the times. The hel­met no longer has ca­bles that snap into the back of it and an­ten­nas shoot up from the bot­tom. The reg­u­la­tor also has no dial on it.

Hawk­eye re­turns with some new weapons, in­clud­ing a col­lapsi­ble ba­ton for close-in fight­ing. His iconic bow has un­der­gone some mod­i­fi­ca­tions as well. It is now left-handed for the ac­tor, lighter in weight and eas­ier to han­dle. He also sports a dif­fer­ent look, with a full-sleeved jacket in­stead of a vest, as well as a re­turn to the more tra­di­tional pur­ple colour.

When a wire rig could not be used, Paul Bet­tany used an AirBoard to float around as the Vi­sion. The AirBoard is pres­sure-plated with the toes and the heel, so it mim­ics a hover board and can go up to 12 miles per hour. It took Bet­tany only a few min­utes to learn how to use the AirBoard and it def­i­nitely helped to frame the char­ac­ter’s in­tan­gi­ble float­ing.
