Now that ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’ and ‘Tomorrowland’ are currently in theaters, Walt Disney Pictures can shift it’s focus to promoting the next summer blockbuster from Marvel Studios, ‘Ant-Man’. Though many True Believers have been skeptical since the news of Edgar Wright’s departure, the various trailers that have been released so far show that there’s definitely some potential in Peyton Reed’s upcoming Phase Three finale. But now you can learn even more about the technology utilized by master thief Scott Lang when he becomes the biggest little hero there is.
Recently, the House of Ideas updated the movie’s official website to include a number of cool things like various videos and stills from the film. But amongst all the promotional material that we’ve seen already, there are some shiny new tidbits to check out. First of all, you can get up close and personal with the ant-sized Avenger’s hardware with these detailed looks at the suit that Dr. Henry Pym created. Plus, you can see how it sizes up to other items you may find in the Marvel Cinematic Universe:
Not only can you learn more about the suit itself, but you can also educate yourself on what makes the suit work. Long-time fans may already be familiar with Pym Particles, but here’s how they work in the MCU:
“Dr. Henry Pym (Michael Douglas) originally discovered and isolated a rare group of subatomic particles, which have become known as the ‘Pym Particles’, which could increase or decrease the size and mass of objects or living beings. The Pym Particles work by stunting matter into the Kosmos Dimension when shrinking a subject or accruing extra matter from that dimension when enlarging.”
Now that we’re armed with this information, are you more excited for the release of ‘Ant-Man’ next month? Let us know in the comment section.
‘Ant-Man’ starring Michael Douglas, Paul Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, and Corey Stoll flies into theaters on July 17, 2015.
