New character posters, including the first look at Michelle Pfeiffer's Janet van Dyne:
Nice to see Pfeiffer in particular, although I'm a bit surprised they gave her a poster. Since she hasn't been in any marketing yet, I had been wondering if they were saving her entirely for the film as some kind of surprise. Not that we don't know she's in it, obviously, but still.
The folks at MCUCosmic.com are saying the Michelle Pfeiffer poster could be a spoiler. How so? That she was the original Wasp? Didn't we know that from the first movie? Looking at the poster, I wonder if her limbs are mangled or something; they seem to dangle. They sure made Pfeiffer look old. In real life, she just turned 60, which is much younger than her appearance in the poster.
Really? I sure don't think so. Here's another pic of her taken this year. She looks great for a 60-year-old IMO, and that's coming from another 60-year-old:
Marvel announced she was in it, and they announced who she was playing. If they thought it was a spoiler, they wouldn't have done either one of those things. I'm a bit surprised to see her now since the marketing at this point hasn't used her, so I thought they might want to reveal her in the film. But it's not like we don't know she's going to be in it.
Another new TV spot mentions the "house arrest" issue from Infinity War:
This is different.
I like that last poster.
Cool Dolby poster
I got an email from Disney saying that tickets go on sale tomorrow.
3D Double Feature fan event on open day.
Initial reactions are very positive:
Interesting that both Kevin Feige and a lot of the early commentators have noted that Ant-Man and the Wasp ties directly into Avengers 4. So I'm guessing that while the bulk of the movie takes place shortly before the events of Infinity War, by the end of the movie, the timelines are synced.
My completely uninformed guess is that:
Spoiler: Avengers 4 Speculation
Judy Greer's character is one of the 50 percent that gets wiped out by Thanos. So the personal stakes for Scott heading into Avengers 4 is that he want to get Cassie's mom back. I wouldn't be surprised if Hank Pym and/or Janet van Dyne are also among the 50 percent that get wiped out, to make the stakes personal for Hope.
I can't imagine they'd make Cassie one of the 50 percent though; killing Ant-Man's kid would be a huge downer to end the movie on.
IIRC, the "expanded aspect ratio" scenes appear only in the IMAX 3D versions of Marvel movies, not in IMAX 2D - is that correct?
The expanded ratio should be appear in all IMAX presentations, both 2D and 3D. That was the case with previous Marvel titles released in both IMAX 2D and 3D, including Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War.
No. I saw Civil War, Ragnarok and Black Panther in IMAX 2D and they had the expanded ratio scenes intact.
Edit: Josh beat me to saying essentially the same thing.
An on that note, since Ant-Man and the Wasp is opening tonight, I'm out of this thread until I get a chance to see it sometime over the weekend.
To those seeing it before me, enjoy. I'll be back after.
Thanks, I saw "IW" 2D IMAX and I could've sworn it didn't have the expanded ratio shots, but I'm old and senile so I'm probably wrong.
I might still venture to the nearest IMAX with 3D. It's farther away but hey, it's summer and my work schedule is flexible, so what the heck!
Plus, with A List, it costs me no extra!
I only saw it in IMAX 3D, but fellow HTF'er Adam Lenhardt saw it in IMAX 2D and confirmed that it had the IMAX ratio. It might not have been as noticeable with Infinity War because the IMAX version was 1.90:1 throughout the entire film, rather than switching from 2.40:1 and 1.90:1 as other Marvel films with IMAX sequences previously had done.
Just returned from a packed showing and it was fantastic. The crowd loved it and laughed throughout. While I liked the first one the sequel was a giant (pun intended) step up. Marvel is hitting on all cylinders at this point. There's two stingers BTW, one mid credits and one at the very end.
