Ant-Man and the Wasp is about to be released in the US this week, though most of the outside world are having to wait till August. So no doubt I am about to be spoiled rotten before getting the chance to see the movie. Oh well, might as well go all in on the Ant-Man and the Wasp news right?
One of the coolest scenes in Ant-Man was Scott Lang’s journey through the Quantum Realm, and keen eyed fans eventually found that there was a blink and you’ll miss it image of Janet Van Dyne, AKA the original Wasp. It was not until the movie was on home release that fans were able to pause and go through the images frame by frame and find the Janet Easter-egg.
Now Marvel boss Kevin Feige and Ant-Man and the Wasp director Peyton Reed have told fans to keep a keen eye on the Quantum Realm scenes in the sequel for hints at what might come in the MCU’s future.
Here is what Feige said to io9.
“Like the first movie there are clues in the Quantum Realm to other possibilities and things, I’m talking frames of film.”
And director Peyton Reed
“We have definitely laid some groundwork for some stuff down there… similar to what we did in the first movie, it was not until really DVD or Blu-ray release when people started freeze-framing it like ‘Wait a second. There’s a reflection. Is that Wasp down there? Is it Janet?'”
Of course neither Reed or Feige were any more forthcoming with exactly what is teased here, as you’d expect. I wonder if any fans will manage to spot anything interesting in theater viewings this time, or it will be home release again before we find the little details?
If anyone does notice anything cool whilst watching the movie this week or next, let me know in the comments or by E-Mail and we can perhaps post some of the secrets for other fans to watch out for. I’m getting spoiled anyway, as I said above, I have to embrace it this time. Let us know what you think below as always.
