The new Ant-Man and the Wasp trailer took everyone by a storm as it revealed numerous new things that we haven’t yet seen in the MCU. There are a lot of big takeaways from this amazing trailer and people loved the way everything looks to be in this movie.
There were various things that shocked people in this trailer while some we saw coming because of what we have read about the movie in the past. Things that were really fun to watch were the Wasp and Ant-Man moments as well as how the Pym particles are being used throughout the trailer and how they will make a huge impact in the movie as we only got to see a little bit of what we could expect from this movie.
One of the best outtakes was certainly the most innovative and creative use of Pym tech. During the chase scene, we saw that the Wasp turned a Hello Kitty Pez dispenser into the size of a truck and used it as a great offensive maneuver delivering a scene which was visually pretty dope. It was a nod to the first Ant-Man movie where we got to see a ‘Thomas the Engine’ toy turn into the size of a real train engine.
Also, during that chase sequence, we saw the van which Pym and Hope were driving shrink down, and go under a van that was chasing them, and then shrink back to normal size, launching the other van out of the chase. This again was a cool move to pull off and was amazing to watch as well.
But the scene that had the biggest impact on the audiences was when Hank Pym shrunk down his entire research facility and turned it into his luggage which he can pull around anywhere he wants to. It was similar to the tank scene in the first Ant-Man movie where towards the end of the movie we find out that Hank Pym’s keychain was actually a fully functional armed Tank.
This Pym Lab scene actually raised a lot of questions in the minds of the fans and people just could not get their heads around it while understanding the science behind it. Well, the science to this scene may be explained in the movie but one thing that the fans were able to spot in this trailer was how exactly Hank Pym powers his entire technologically advanced laboratory.
In a scene during the trailer, we see the interior of Hank Pym’s lab, where we see a sort of ship that Hank Pym has built in order to enter the Quantum Realm for saving his wife Janet Van Dyne, the original Wasp. Now if you look at the image above and focus on the right side, you can easily find the letters of ‘Duracell’ through a window. So, Hank Pym uses a giant Duracell battery to power his entire research facility. That is awesome!
According to the director of the movie, Peyton Reed, the entire movie uses a lot of creative uses of Pym particles and he confirmed this in an interview earlier. Here’s what he said:
“We’ve actually been holed up in the room writing the movie — myself, Paul Rudd, Adam McKay, Andrew Barrer and Gab Ferrari. So we’re formulating the whole structure of the movie. And I can’t really tell you too much yet, except there are going to be things in this movie that you’ve never seen in any movie before. It’s going to be nuts!”
Well, he is not wrong about claiming that, because where else would you see a building suddenly shrink down and be turned into a carry bag, a Hello Kitty Pez dispenser grow big in size out of nowhere and many more cool things like these. This movie is certainly going to be something we cannot even imagine as the writer’s room had a lot to play with.
Paul Rudd is returning as Scott Lang aka Ant-Man, Michael Douglas is reprising his role as Hank Pym, Evangeline Lilly will play Hope Van Dyne aka The Wasp, Laurence Fishburne will be Dr. Bill Foster/Goliath, Walter Goggins will play Sonny Burch, Michelle Phiefer will play Jannet Van Dyne, Hannah John Kamen will play Ghost and Michael Pena will be returning as Luis. Ant-Man and The Wasp will hit the theatres on July 6, 2018.
