‘Ant-Man’ Director Peyton Reed Tells You Where to Find the Easter Eggs in Marvel’s Latest
If you’re heading out to a theater to see Ant-Man this weekend (and if you’re not, you really should check out Trainwreck), you’ve probably got a few things preoccupying your MCU-loving mind — for instance, where might one spot potential Marvel Easter eggs in the studio’s latest superhero film?
In an interview with Collider, director Peyton Reed lays out where you can find some of the Easter eggs hidden in the film. Well, not so much hidden as they are hidden in plain sight. First stop? Hank Pym’s house:
I think anytime you’re in Hank Pym’s beautiful, Victorian house in San Francisco, you want to look around the room. You might notice certain details that sort of talk abut his history and his experimentation with the Pym particle. There might some miniaturized objects all around the room.
In addition to the house, Reed says you can also look for newspapers, which feature an interesting headline as well as “some other things in the margins of that newspaper that are interesting.” And finally, keep an eye out for a moment in the third act:
There’s an event that happens to Scott Lang in the third act of the movie. He goes into a place that’s been unseen in any motion picture ever before, and when he goes into that place – I don’t think Scott Lang sees it, but if you’re sharp, if you’re a keen, sharp audience member you might see something or someone in that environment.
And now you know, and as they say, knowing is half the battle. Wrong franchise, correct sentiment.
Ant-Man hits theaters on July 17.
