When You Watch ANT-MAN AND THE WASP Keep a Look Out For Easter Eggs in The Quantum Realm
As you might imagine, Ant-Man and The Wasp is filled with all kinds of Marvel Easter eggs for fans to find. The studio loves to throw references to other MCU films and comics in their movies! Some are easy to spot, while others are hard to find. It sounds like Ant-Man and The Wasp is filled with Easter eggs that are hard to find, so fans have got to keep their eyes peeled, especially when it comes to the scenes involving the Quantum Realm.
While talking to /Film, director Peyton Reed was asked if there were any Easter eggs to be found in the Quantum Realm scenes and he confirmed that there are. Of course, he didn't reveal what they were! However, he did say:
"Yeah, there’s a lot of little-hidden things. I mean, definitely as you go through Hank Pym’s laboratory, on the practical set and then some of the stuff we added later digitally, there are a lot of weird, little Easter eggs and things. And then as we kind of go further down into the Quantum Realm in this movie, there definitely is some things to sort of look for. That was a challenge, the Quantum Realm, ’cause it really could be infinite. It could be anything. And figuring out how much of our story took place in the Quantum Realm and particularly like designing that last act that cross-cuts between the chase and the Quantum Realm. But there’s stuff to look for in there definitely."
I imagine that those Easter eggs could possibly be tied to events in future MCU movies like Ant-Man 3 or Avengers 4. In a separate interview with CB, Reed did say that there were definitely some nods to what is to come.
"I can't say really what are seeds about Avengers 4, or about a potential other Ant Man movie, but I can say that things are definitely in a movie for a reason. I will say that. Whether it's an actual Easter egg, or whether it's a misdirect, and I'm very proud of you for sighting the art of misdirection, because it was something that we definitely talked about a lot and became a fanatic in the movie."
I've seen Ant-Man and The Wasp twice already and the second time around I was really looking for stuff to be seen in the Quantum Realm. To be honest, though, the visuals are so trippy that I don't know what in the hell I should be looking for!
Are there any Easter eggs that you saw in Ant-Man and the Wasp?
