If you are unfamiliar with the size-changing superhero, the title may leave you wanting. However, Ant-Man has become one of the most popular films of 2015, and one of the most loved films of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This surprising success is in no small way attributable to Paul Rudd’s outstanding performance that brings with it a comedic element that rivals Robert Downey Jr as Iron Man.
Ant-Man is an origin story. It chronicles the story of how Scott Lang (Rudd) came to take on the role of Ant-Man under the mentorship of the original Ant-Man, Hank Pym (Michael Douglas). Pym designed a suit that allows the wearer to shrink to the size of an ant and have the ability to communicate with ants. When he realizes that there are people out there that want to use this technology for the wrong reasons, he hides it away and desists using it.
When Scott Lang breaks into a house and steals the suit, he decides to return it. He is subsequently arrested, however Hank Pym decides to utilize his cat burglar skills for his own needs. Pym’s protégé Darren Cross (Corey Stoll) is close to replicating the suit and Pym enlists Lang to break in and steal Cross’ replica suit.
The film had a turbulent production process with original writer and director Edgar Wright leaving the process late in the day to be replaced by Peyton Reed, which brought with it some apprehension from audiences. This was soon waylaid when the film opened to both critical and audience acclaim.
But, as with all films, and in particular action films, there were some mistakes that slipped through into the final edit. Here we take a look at 10 of those goofs.
10 Sneaky Camera-man
9 Genetically Modified Ants
8 Inconsistent Flashbacks
7 Miracle Nose Bleeds
6 Inaccurate Voices
5 Silent/Non-Silent Phones
4 Changing Shape-shifting
3 The Incredibly Light Shrinking Tank
2 Clothing Malfunction
1 Magic Thomas the Tank Engine
In the advert for the film, one of the best scenes of the film is utilised. During a big fight scene, a toy Thomas the Tank Engine set is used. The model train is running on a train track as the two insect sized foes fight. Yellowjacket stands on the track and when the model train hits him it falls off the track. The juxtaposition from the dramatic fight scene to the tiny effect of the small model train falling off a model railway set the scene for the film in the advert. In the film sequence, however, after the train has fallen off the track, Cross (Yellowjacket) is seen lifting Thomas from the track and throwing it at Ant-Man.
