Ant-Man and the Wasp set visit

I’m standing inside Hank Pym’s new high tech laboratory. Pym’s secure room under his house in the first Ant-Man was pretty slick, but this two-story complex puts that place to shame. Banks of computers – some brand new, some decades old – flash as they work side by side. The place has a mixture of analog and modern technology: microphones attached to a tape player, an ancient reel-to-reel machine plopped next to a corrugated cardboard model with Pym Particle receptacles attached.

And there are some bizarre additions that make sense when you consider this lab was built by the original Ant-Man. You know those little plastic clips that keep loaves of bread from getting stale? A huge version of one of those corrals some cables hanging from the ceiling. Across the room, there’s a six foot paper clip on the side of a futuristic tunnel, and oversized Erector set pieces can be seen all throughout the cavernous lab. Occasionally, I find myself walking across a massive LEGO piece slotted into the floor, inserted as if to fill what would have otherwise been a gap in a second story catwalk. An oversized shock absorber with its round circular tubing sits in the corner, seemingly holding up the building itself. It feels as if someone designed this entire lab in miniature, utilizing whatever tools and scattered pieces were within arm’s reach on a workbench, and then blew the tiny version up to full size. That Hank Pym is a smart guy.

On September 14, 2017, I joined a small group of other reporters on the Pinewood set of Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man and the Wasp just outside of Atlanta, Georgia. We found ourselves walking around on the single largest set Marvel has constructed in the studio’s existence thus far. Speaking with the cast and crew, we learned what director Peyton Reed has planned for this super-sized sequel, and below, you can read our full Ant-Man and the Wasp set visit report. But beware – there are some plot details here that some of you may consider spoilers. Read More »
