Only reachable when Ant-Man (Paul Rudd) shrinks so impossibly small that he enters a whole other dimension, the Quantum Realm was meant to be impossible to escape — which is why the original Wasp, Janet van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer) has spent the past 31 years stuck there.

We’re trying to tread carefully while writing about Captain America: Civil War. There’s plenty of story in the Marvel project that the trailers and TV spots have yet to spoil.

If you haven’t seen Ant-Man, the latest release from Marvel Studios, it’s worth heading out to theaters to catch. It’s a refreshingly contained story with the right amount of humor, charm and action. And as with any Marvel movie, there are some nice touches for fans of the comic books, including a credits scene that may be a direct response to the overwhelming fan demand for more female characters.
Speaking of female characters, one thing that Ant-Man could have used a little more of was The Wasp, the female counterpart to Hank Pym’s (Michael Douglas) original iteration of Ant-Man. We’ll likely get to see more of the character in future Marvel movies, but in the meantime, some concept are has surfaced showing off alternate costume designs for the characters.
See the new Wasp concept art below, but beware of some spoilers in the text as we discuss the heroine in the movie. Read More »
