FUN FACTS

  • Marvel Comics first introduced brilliant scientist Dr. Hank Pym and his alter ego, Ant-
    Man, in 1962 with the publication of “Tales to Astonish #27.” He would later appear
    with the Avengers in the team’s debut in “Avengers #1” in 1963.
  • The Wasp, a founding member of the Avengers alongside Ant-Man, and its first Super
    Heroine, first appeared in Marvel Comics’ “Tales to Astonish #44” in 1963.
  • The Wasp’s introduction marks the first female character to be featured in the title
    treatment of a Marvel Studios film.
  •  The set for Hank Pym’s newest lab is a spectacle that was constructed and finished over
    a 4-month period on a 15,000 square-foot sound stage at Pinewood Atlanta.
  •  Courtesy of an industrial-sized 3D printer, the production design team was able to print
    well over 8,000 pieces to comprise many of the fun elements within the lab set.
  • The costume design team fabricated a total of 64 specialty costumes, including dozens
    of helmets, belts, backpacks and gauntlets. This would include 14 versions of Ant-Man’s
    suit, 15 for Wasp, 12 for Ghost, 8 suits for Hank and 15 suits for Janet.
  • Audiences were given a hint of what was to come in “Ant-Man” when Hank Pym
    unveiled a prototype of the Wasp suit in the film’s final scene. But that was an old
    prototype from the 1980s. The new Wasp suit embraces the new technology that has
    evolved since the prototype was made and also sports a sleek, contemporary look.
    Ultimately, the suit was made with a form-fitting base layer with multiple semi-rigid
    molded pieces laid over it, plus boots and a helmet.
  • The Wasp’s signature wings are incorporated into the design of the suit in closed mode
    but when expanded and ready for flight they become a digital add-on, courtesy of
    Stephane Ceretti’s visual effects team.
  • Paul Rudd gets a modernized version of the original leather suit he debuted in “Ant-
    Man,” which had more of a vintage feel reflecting its 1960s origins. Gone is the leather:
    the new suit is made from streamlined tactile fabric that is enhanced with a three-
    dimensional print, giving it a modern look with a tighter fit.
  • For the shrinking elements, the production design team built miniature sets, filming
    them with motion picture macrophotography and still macrophotography. The actors
    and their stunt doubles were filmed in motion capture, which was supervised by the
    visual effects team, in order to digitally place them within the macro world.
