Ant-Man And The Wasp’s Opening Scene Rumored To Not Have Tested Well With Audiences
While we may be counting down the days until April 27 – the day Avengers: Infinity War arrives in cinemas – it’s important we not forget that Marvel Studios have one more offering coming in 2018, that being Ant-Man and the Wasp. And though the latter probably won’t smash box office records like the former, it’s probably safe to say that it’ll still sell more than a few tickets.
Of course, what’ll be key to the success of those incredibly shrinking heroes is that of word of mouth, for it’ll play a remarkable factor in determining just how leggy their theatrical run will be. Granted, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but word on the street is that Disney is lending an ear to those almighty test audiences.
Not long ago, we learned that Ant-Man and the Wasp is said to be undergoing some eleventh hour reshoots, which, according to the folks over at Bad Taste, is mostly due to the film’s opening scene not resonating very well with those who attended early screenings. In fact, said opener may end up being reshot in its entirety.
Keep in mind that this report hasn’t been confirmed – nor have the specifics regarding what was included in the opening scene – but we all know that reshoots aren’t uncommon in the motion picture industry. Still, we can only hope that if indeed some significant alterations are to be made, that the visual effects are up to par because opening weekend really isn’t that far away. I mean, the protagonists in this production are heavily reliant on CGI, so let’s cross our fingers that the final product looks sharp.
Ant-Man and the Wasp is expected to take flight on July 6th, and all signs point to a deep dive into the Quantum Realm to locate and potentially rescue the long-lost Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), who was once known as the original Wasp before her daughter, Hope (Evangeline Lilly), got her wings three years ago.
