Corey Stoll recently talked to Entertainment Weekly to discuss the "Ant-Man" chief villain, Darren Cross, a.k.a. Yellowjacket. The actor revealed that his costume in the upcoming film is more high-tech than Paul Rudd's, who is portraying the titular role "Ant-Man."

Starring alongside Rudd, Michael Douglas, and Evangeline Lilly, Stoll told Entertainment Weekly that his character was the child prodigy of Hank Pym (Douglas).

"He nurtured me and I was part of his technology company," the actor said, as quoted by the news outlet. "I started to become aware of these rumors of this fabled technology that can shrink people to half an inch while keeping their full-size strength. And I became very obsessed with it and demanded that we move forward. But Pym had sort of buried it for ethical, moral reasons."

As the story progresses, Cross conspires with Pym's daughter, Hope (Lilly), to take over the company. He then uses the human-shrinking technology on himself, which has serious consequences to the wearer. 

"Now, I've discovered my own version of that technology and I'm using it for militaristic purposes," Stoll further explained to Entertainment Weekly. "I've even started to use the technology myself, which as a sort of psychotic effect on people if they use it too much. I can't get into the details of all the goodies of the Yellowjacket suit but it's several generations advanced from what Ant-Man has."

Marvel's "Ant-Man," slated for release in theaters on July 17, 2015, is directed by Peyton Reed with Kevin Feige as the producer and Louis D'Esposito, Alan Fine, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo, Edgar Wright, and Stan Lee serving as executive producers, SlashFilm reported.

Aside from Rudd, Douglas, Stoll, and Lilly, the film will also star Bobby Cannavale (Paxton), Michael Peña (Luis), Judy Greer (Maggie), Tip "Ti" Harris (Dave), David Dastmalchian (Kurt), Wood Harris (Gale), Jordi Mollà (Castillo), according to SlashFilm.

Speaking about what it feels to shoot the movie, Stoll told Entertainment Weekly that he did lots of motion-capture scenes which were done without costumes or a set.

"It's just getting the movements and the facial performance. It almost feels like you're making a silent movie, where the director shouts out, 'And now you're gonna get punched on the left side of your face!' 'And now there's a swarm of ants!' It was a lot of fun," the 38-year-old actor said, as reported by Entertainment Weekly.

Stoll also added that the production team of "Ant-Man" had 45 days of shooting using macro photography. The whole unit shot a shrunk Ant-Man interacting with the world by using "this crazy, next-level technology that enables you to film things at an incredibly small level without the distortion of a very wide lens," the news outlet noted.
