This Tuesday, December 8, sees the release of the latest Marvel Superhero movie to leave the big screen and “shrink down” to screen sizes more suited for home video, and that movie is Ant-Man, and according to io9 there will be a number of bonus features and deleted scenes for geeks to enjoy. Some of those have already made it online, and one of them even teases a major Marvel villain.
First up is this scene, in which Darren Cross (Corey Stoll) shows some potential real world uses for his shrinking technology. The key here though, is the tattoo on the buyer at the end. That’s the Ten Rings of the Mandarin. However, since this scene was deleted, it’s unclear if this Mandarin Easter egg should be taken seriously or not in the MCU.
Next is this funny scene between Scott (Paul Rudd) and his daughter, Cassie (Abby Ryder Fortson). It’s basically just Paul Rudd being Paul Rudd and doesn’t add a ton, especially since the movie itself does a great job of showing us how important this relationship is. It’s still cute, though.
And then there’s this clip, which we ran over the weekend, but figured we’d throw it in here again in case you missed it. This would have been the first introduction of Hank Pym, but director Peyton Reed (who you hear on the commentary of all of these) felt it didn’t quite fit.
Want more Ant-Man? Of course you do. Here are a few other featurettes from the Blu-ray, which hits on December 8. It’s available on digital download now.
So will you be buying Ant-Man for your home viewing pleasure? Do you like some of the deleted scenes? What are your thoughts on this movie and how it fits in with the Cinematic Universe we’ve been given so far?
