BTS Gallery For Ant-Man And The Wasp Takes Us Closer To The Teeny-Tiny Action


Coming off Captain America: Civil War, it’s fair to say that Scott Lang is torn between life as a superhero and being a parent.

Making matters worse is the fact that Paul Rudd’s hero is still under house arrest by the time Ant-Man and the Wasp begins, which puts him in a tricky spot if he’s to help Hank Pym and Hope Van Dyne recover the original Wasp from the depths of the Quantum Realm.

Doing so won’t be easy, of course, but as this newly-unveiled gallery attests, Peyton Reed and his ensemble cast still had some fun while shooting Ant-Man and the Wasp. Every photo is designed to take you behind-the-scenes of Marvel’s teeny-tiny blockbuster, where we gain a better sense of how the stunt team choreographed many of the fight scenes involving Evangeline Lilly’s Wasp. All of this (and much more!) can be glimpsed down below:

As for Scott Lang’s time under house arrest, well, his run-in with the law can be traced back to the Sokovia Accords, the piece of legislation that essentially thrust a wedge between Earth’s Mightiest Heroes two years ago. Back then, Ant-Man sided with Team Cap, and the rest is history, as the film’s executive producer, Stephen Broussard, explained to Collider:

And in fact, that whole building, because Hank and Hope, part of their backstory in this is that they’re on the run as well. Like post-Sokovia Accords, someone knocked on their door and was like, ‘You’ve got to sign this contract, you’ve got to be under the Accords because you’re currently in violation of this thing we put in place in Captain America: Civil War.’ Hank Pym being Hank Pym, who never wanted Stark to have his technology said, ‘Thanks but no thanks,’ and sort of had to go underground a little bit.

On July 6th, Ant-Man and the Wasp will mark the 20th installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and it’s shaping up to be a doozy. More on Peyton Reed’s teeny-tiny sequel as we inch closer to D-day.
