A new saga has begun. In the film, which officially kicks off phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Super-Hero partners Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) and Hope Van Dyne (Evangeline Lilly) return to continue their adventures as Ant-Man and the Wasp.
Together, with Hope’s parents Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) and Janet Van Dyne (Michelle Pfeiffer), the family finds themselves exploring the Quantum Realm, interacting with strange new creatures and embarking on an adventure that will push them beyond the limits of what they thought was possible. Jonathan Majors joins the adventure as Kang. Director Peyton Reed returns to direct the film; Kevin Feige and Stephen Broussard produce.
Led by VFX Supervisors Malte Sarnes and Axel Bonami, the visual effects work for Ant-Man and The Wasp: Quantumania was a collaborative effort between MPC’s Adelaide, Montreal, Bangalore, and LA teams. The VFX teams used the latest tools and artistry to create the film’s breathtaking visuals, with over 1000 artists delivering more than 800 shots. MPC Adelaide’s Concept Art team, under the supervision of Art Director Nicholas Pill, and MPC LA’s Concept Art team, led by Art Director Leandre Lagrange, were tasked with designing the background for a specific location in the Quantum Realm, Guerilla Village. To visualize this environment, the team researched microscopic, subatomic, and neural network references, as well as artists such as Gerard van Smirren.
